Woohoo! Hey, guys! Monica over at Cover Analysis and I will be hosting this AMAZINGLY AWESOME read-a-thon! For this read-a-thon, we've chosen Splintered by A.G Howard. For the month of March, we will be reading and hopefully very much enjoying Splintered!
Splintered by A.G Howard
Publication: January 1st, 2013

This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. 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.
Starting Monday the 11th, we will begin reading the first 7 chapters of the book. Then on next Monday, we'll read the next 7 chapters. And on the next Monday after that, we'll all finish up the book.
