TBR Thursday (4)

TBR Thursday is a meme hosted by Drea. (Inspired by Waiting on Wednesday/Breaking the Spine.)

TBR Thursday highlights all those books that are already out (whether you own them or not) that you’re dying to read, but haven’t had the chance to yet. There can be some old books, some new books, and some that are in between, but they have to be books that you want/hope to read and review!

Here’s my TBR Thursday this week

Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
Release Date:
Sept 2006

You know the myth…

A little girl named Alice tumbled down a rabbit hole and proceeded to have a charming adventure in the delightful, made-up world of Wonderland…

Now discover the truth… Wonderland Exists!

Alyss Heart, heir to the Wonderland throne, was forced to flee through the Pool of Tears after a bloody palace coup staged by the murderous Redd. Lost and alone in Victorian London, Alyss is befriended by an aspiring author to whom she tells the violent, heartbreaking story of her young life only to see it published as the nonsensical Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyss had trusted Lewis Carroll to tell the truth so that someone, somewhere would find her and bring her home. But Carroll had gotten it all wrong. He even misspelled her name! If not for royal bodyguard Hatter Madigan’s nonstop search to locate the lost princess, Alyss may have become just another society woman sipping tea in a too-tight corset instead of returning to Wonderland to fight Redd for her rightful place as the Queen of Hearts.

Meet the heroic, passionate, monstrous, vengeful denizens of this parallel world as they battle each other with AD-52’s and orb generators, navigate the Crystal Continuum, bet on jabberwock fights and travel across the Chessboard Desert.
