WAITING ON WEDNESDAY is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week, I can’t wait for a book coming out this January with a dark retelling of Alice in Wonderland.
Author: A.G. Howard
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Horror
Publisher: Amulet Books
Release Date: January 1
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.
The cover alone makes me want this book.
And to add a fantastic Alice in Wonderland twist into the mix? Even better.
The New Year can’t come fast enough.
Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait.
What books are you looking forward to?
