“Waiting On” Wednesday – April 25

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted on Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I have an obsession with The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland. I have tea cups, and pictures books, a Mad Hatter hat I made myself, and a really old, really fragile copy of the book that I worship. My Alice in Wonderland obsession is all consuming. So, it is no surprise that any book coming out with even a glimmer of connection to my beloved Alice or Wonderland goes on my “to be read” list. Or should I call it my “to be obsessed over” list?

My “Waiting On” Wednesday selection is:
Splintered by A.G. Howard, to be published January 2013 (sob) Such a long time!

I love the cover!

Goodreads summary:
For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell — the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers … the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.

When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on.

There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.

      Gasp! Oh my god! This is the first time an author of a book I had on here actually posted a comment. Thank you so much for taking the time to find me. I can’t wait to read your book. I adore Alice in Wonderland and pretty much devour anything to do with it.
