Waiting on Wednesday: 12/5/12

This bookish meme tells about the blogosphere what we're patiently waiting (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's run by Jill at Breaking the Spine. 

This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.
When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

I have heard nothing but amazing things about this book and the cover is just gorgeous. Also, I've never read an Alice in Wonderland retelling, so I'm dying to read this and see what they're all about!  I cannot wait to be able to crack this book open! 

What are you waiting on this week? 


  1. Yes, I am so excited for this dark re-telling of Alice too! Great pick!

  2. I already read Splintered and I can tell you that you will not be disappointed this book rocked! Thanks for stopping by my post :)
