Dying to Read (5)- Splintered by AG Howard



Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!


Splintered
A.G. Howard
Release Date: January 1, 2013
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Amulet Books (Abrams)
ISBN: 1419704281
Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now. 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.

This week the book I’m dying to read is Splintered by AG Howard! I mean first of all look at that cover it’s absolutely gorgeous and look at the detail!!! And the synopsis? I love Alice in Wonderland and I’m super excited to dig into Alyssa’s story!

So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?

  3. I'm not a big YA reader but THIS cover makes me want to read this YA book. The premise almost reminds me of Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series, where the heroine is stuck between following her best friend or the sexy and mysterious new guy into this new and unknown world.
