There was him, there was her, there was wonderland. Wonderland an extension of him, he was her dreams, her savior, he ruined her for all others-SHE NEEDED HIM. She was his balm, what calms him, she keeps him togther, whole, she can resuscitate Wonderland-HE NEEDED HER. WONDERLAND NEEDED THEM!!

I have to admit, the idea was good. A faerie godmother to the 'bad guys' of our bedtime stories finds herself in need of finding girls for Hook, Big-bad-Wolf, and the Mad Hatter. It sounded like a fun premise - this book being the Mad Hatter's love story. I liked the idea of an insane hero... never read about one of THOSE before in a romance!

And when I got to reading it, I found that it was very clever, making Wonderland actually be the twisted creation of Hatter's deteriorating mind, adapting t

The beginning was great! So much potential, very funny too, introducing the bad boys of the Kingdom who'll get their own books later on :)

What didn't work for me?
Too sweet. Yes, I love sweet books but this was too much, especially in the last 20-30%. I was expecting some crazy bad boy hottie, but I just got a crazy mushy dude.

Oh well. I'll continue with the series because I LOVE fairy tale stories, and I hope it won't be as mushy as this one.

I love retellings, and when I noticed this one's based on Alice in Wonderland, I got super excited. This was a short story about Alice and The Hatter. I liked parts of it but it also had so many faults in it. The characters got annoying and Hatter wasn't really mad enough for my liking, he should have been way more complex. Also minus points from the steamy scenes. They could have been a lot better... and also longer. So I like I said, I liked parts of it but this could have been so much better. ...more

Alice is all grown up, running the Mad Hatter's cupcakery. On one night she gets a visit from a fairy godmother, with a weakness for bad boys.
Now, Alice's world is literally turned upside down, and she is plunged head first into wonderland and into the life of the Mad Hatter.

He's completely mad, and stuck in time. She's not the first Alice to meet the beautiful creature but is she the one? Strong enough to break through his walls and free him from his mind? Only time will tell.

I quite enjoyed the writing in this one and the description of Wonderland but the characters were one dimensional and didn't make me feel anything for them. Right near the end we get a small conflict and then pop all is well and its finished within the space of a few pages. What sort of fairytale ending is that?!

All right, first of all I should say my rating is actually 2.5. I'm very conflicted about this one. See, I didn't hate it, I actually enjoyed reading it, and yet while it's more than good enough for a decent fan fiction story, it doesn't quite cut it as a proper novel. Unless we're talking Mills & Boon. It would make a decent one of them. The plot was adequate, but the writing was occasionally clumsy and rather clichéd. The funny thing is I had a small lump in my throat towards the end due t ...more

I am not usually one for romances, but read this because I was in an Alice kick & it was free on the Kindle. I liked the back story, the idea that Wonderland & the Mad Hatter had this relationship that was so tied up. I liked the idea that Alice is destined to be a part of the Wonderland universe in some way, other than being a passer-by. I do get uncomfortable with all attraction being almost entirely sexual (just because, while most people are physically attracted to their mate, there ...more

It was a free ebook, don't judge me!

Structurally the writing wasn't awful and for erotica the plot wasn't too vomit enduing.

Time to go on a rambling rant now.

The writer seemed to be trying so hard to make the Mad Hatter seem kooky that it felt incredibly forced. And what was with all the Poe quoting? I know there's the riddle in Alice in Wonderland that some people think is referring to Poe (Why is a Raven like a writing desk? Poe wrote on both), but that hardly warrants every other piece of d

Her Mad Hatter is a modern retelling of Alice in Wonderland... Mad Hatter has a fairy godmother, who must find his Alice in order to stop Hatter from going completely insane and causing the end of Wonderland. Hatter isn't willing to cooperate because "that" Alice broke his heart and only wanted the power of Wonderland. That Alice has a great granddaughter who is also named Alice. Alice Hu is in her early twenties and is obsessed with Alice in Wonderland stories, so much so that her room is decor ...more

I wasn't sure where this story was going to go but I have to say it was a well written fairytale fantasy. I really liked the way Wonderland was described and also how the bad boys from other story books have a godmother who is understanding of there was and see them as needing love like everyone one else.
Danika the fairy godmother is trying to find Hatter's correct Alice but she has to be under handed about how to get them together because of what happened with a past Alice. It does become a lo

I've owned this book for years (2013) & hadn't read it. Honestly I'm not usually overly impressed with fairytale retellings. (In general) I barely enjoyed the originals, the probability of my enjoying a retelling in slim at best. That's not to say it's impossible just improbable.

Unfortunately this book wasn't one I particularly enjoyed. The story itself was short @ a 100 odd pages it wasn't long enough to develop any character depth. It was full of angst & what felt to me like teenage h

This is the first book I have read by Marie Hall & I really liked it. It was a little crazy & strange but like Alice in Wonderland itself.

This is about a fairy godmother who needs to hook her bad boys up with their soul mate. This particular bad boy is The Mad Hatter. Alice Hu has been in love with The Mad Hatter and everything "Wonderland" since she was 13 so to meet The Mad Hatter is a dream come true. But is it a dream or reality?

Throughout this story you do question that & reall

I actually really like the idea behind this. Hall's characterization of the fairy godmother for the bad guys was really great. I'm just not a big romance book person. The whole "he's a jerk but he's hot" thing is a turn off for me. It's not Hall; it's me. But I will say, if you are romance fan and thinking of reading this - the idea is very creative and smart. Hall is funny.

I'm not rating this because while I couldn't finish it, it has to do with my dislike "he's a bastard but he's hot" idea. Tu

The Hatter is truly going mad and only Alice can prevent it - only question is, is she the right Alice?

Actual rating: 2.5 ⭐

I picked this one up on a whim when researching titles for my Popsugar challenge, where I ahve to read a retelling of a classic. 'Alice in Wonderland' is one of my all time favourite books - not just favourite classics, no no, favourite books! So when I read the blurb for this one I was intrigued. Sadly, the book didn't quite live up to my expectations. Perhaps part of it

Neither have I read nor watch Alice in Wonderland. But like all avid readers, you're bound to have at least some knowledge of it. Especially a classic like Alice in Wonderland.

The Kingdom series is an erotic retelling of the bad boys in the well-known fairy tales (how does Alice in Wonderland even fall under the fairy tale category?). Prince Charmings are just overrated. And in the words of Danika, the fairy godmother who worked for the bad boys of Kingdom,

I think everyone believes in fairy tales to a certain extent. But why should only the good guys get to fall in love? That is what Ms. Hall also thought. At the same time with this book I was fascinated and stumped. There were times I loved and times where I thought really inner monologue again? I will continue the series as I love the idea of even the bad guys in Wonderland finding love.3 Mad Hatter ★★★

This was a fun little read. I enjoyed all the backstory and little bits and pieces of information we’re given about Danika, the fairy godmother and matchmaker, and her charges. This particular story of course is about Alice and the Mad Hatter. Danika has been on a mission to find Hatter’s perfect Alice. She’s tried for years, and came close with one in particular. Unfortunately that Alice wasn’t interested in Hatter. She was only interested in the power that comes with Wonderland.

Hello potential reader. I hope you read this because there is one thing you need to know. The first 80-90 pages are torturous. I almost didn't make it, but being the dedicated book reviewer that i am, i trudged through it. Trust me, it gets better.


Although i gave it 3 stars, this isn't going to be a good review. You've been warned.....

I'M SO CONFUSED AS TO HOW TO RATE THIS BOOK. Was it the best thing I've ever read, was the writing good, did it re-invent literature as we know it? Not really. Was it wildly fun, kind of cheesy, and perfect for someone who loves an Alice/Hatter story as much as I do? YES. Went in expecting giggles and a good time, came out having had giggles and a good time. 3.5.
