Waiting on Wednesday (128)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here is what I'm waiting on this week...

by A.G. Howard
To be released: January 01, 2013

Summary from Barnes and Noble:
"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."

So, a mixture of Alice in Wonderland and mental health issues and fantasy wonderfulness... this book sounds great. And I really love the cover. I am definitely excited for this one.

What are you waiting on this week?

Awesome choice Emily! I actually finished reading Splintered this week! It was really good! It was everything I hoped it would be. The beginning almost made me cry! It's so emotional and intense. A.G. Howard is a brilliant writer. You will love Splintered!

Totally agree with you, this one is a book I've been lusting after for awhile. It was and may be still up on NG, I tried to get it and wasn't fortunate enough to score a copy. Its always hit and miss for me at NG, maybe you'll have better luck?
