First of all, I haven’t read Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Still, I have watched movies and read several rendition of the story and it’s one of the classic tales I am very fond of.

I am a sucker for fairy tale/myth retellings so when I discovered this book, I couldn’t shake it out of my head and I knew I just had to read it. So I did.

Trigger Warning: This book contains mentions of rape, child abuse, cannibalism, violence and suicide

Goodreads rating: 4.09 (as of writing)

I have finally decided to read this book because a friend loves the series so much. I’ve seen this book a lot of times in the bookstore but I ignored it for the next 2 years since it was released because when I read the synopsis, I thought it sounded just like every other YA novels I’ve read ever. Not only that, I was also turned off by something written in the synopsis. Warning, mini spoilers ahead.
