Splintered
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine
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.
Why I'm Hyperventilating.....
If you've stared at the cover for more than 5 minutes and then gone to add it on goodreads where you stare at it again for five minutes and then finally read the synopsis, then I can stop here. I don't really need to explain why I've been hyperventilating for this book over and over!

I mean SERIOUSLY. Do you see that G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S cover? Read that crazy good premise? Can you spell H-Y-P-E-R-V-E-N-T-I-L-A-T-E?!!! Sure, I've always thought the Alice and Wonderland story a bit weird and strange, but sometimes I'm willing to look past that for the sake of a crazy-good-awesome-sounding-BEAUTIFUL-looking book!

Wow, breathtaking.

Okay enough, so be it then. Let all OZ, er Wonderland, be agreed I'm in love with this book and will be bugging the publisher till I get some kind of ARC for this book!

  14. I agree that the original Alice story is weird so it will be cool to see how this author works with the story to create something new and different.
