If it isn’t obvious from my fun facts post I’m kind of a huge fan of Alice In Wonderland. [Even My Sweet Sixteen was a murder mystery birthday party- in Wonderland.] Because of this, as a general rule I no longer read Alice In Wonderland retellings… none of the ones I’ve previously read were very good.
Fun fact: I probably never would have picked up this book if it wasn’t for that delicious hazelnut gelato that I had on our trip to Las Vegas.
Mmm, that was the most delicious non-ice cream ice cream that I’ve ever had.
(Also, it has a pastel cover, and I have developed a new obsession with pastel covers.)
I’d heard a lot of mixed reviews about this book. A lot of my favorite reviewers gave it one or two stars, which surprised me.
I think the reason this book might be getting some lower-end reviews is because it’s a cotton candy read.
See, a cotton candy read is a book that isn’t particularly eye-opening or life-changing, and it might not actually do you any good; it’s just a bunch of fluff that tastes really yummy.
The main character, Lina, has her fair share of struggles: her mother passes away from cancer and she is sent to a foreign country [aka Italy] to live with her father, who she didn’t even know existed.
- 2017 is a wonderful, wonderful year for new book releases. I already know that I’m going to spend all my money. Here are the ten books that I am looking forward to reading the most!
Hey! Unless you’re a returning reader from my old blog (in which case, howdy friend!) you probably don’t know anything about me. Fear no more, be prepared to be in awe of how super awesome/interesting/exciting I am!!
