I felt so bad for the main character when at the croquet match (view spoiler)

I am finished chapter 8. The reader is good. I am loving the point of view of the future queen of hearts. I love how the author is making the reader understand how she could grow up into the queen of hearts that is known in other Alison in wonderland tales. So far, she is a very relatable character and her feelings and reactions seem quite reasonable.

Trisha | 31440 comments I'm liking this one too - I'm 5 chapters

but I"m not sure what I think of the characters I know/think I know thrown in odd places.

Cheshire being the odd....isn't he a heart guy?

and the Rabbit being the guy that helps her get places

and....her name being Dinah. That's Alice in Wonderland's cat's name.....

and Charlie, her brother, being known as the Mad Hatter.....

lol I wonder if this will all pull together at some point.

Trisha | 31440 comments oh! And Mandiann,

How's the audio?? Good narrator?

I wondered the same thing about Faina.

Yeah, she is good.


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7495 comments 11 chapters in.

So many questions, very few answers.

The king (view spoiler)

I don't like how little we know about the timeline. How long has it been since the opening scene when Dinah learned about Vittoire? Is it just because I am listening to the audio or does the passage of time get muddled in the physical as well?


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7495 comments Through chapter 13.

Was kind of hoping more would happen in the book but I do suppose it is a short one and part of a series. Still have so many questions and I doubt chapter 14 will answer all of them.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I hope your interest picks up. I really liked this one.

I really liked it too. But I only gave it 3.5 stars because I was a bit unhappy with all the questions and lack of answers as well as the confusing timeline but I am super excited to see where it goes in book two.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm glad you liked it too! :)

Trisha | 31440 comments done too

I guess(view spoiler)

and i agree...I would have loved to have had a better handle on how long Vittoire had been there.....before it all went downhill

So sad(view spoiler)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Good question, Trisha, but I didn't think it was (view spoiler)

Does everyone plan to read the next one?? :)


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I definitely want to continue and read book 2. I know I liked this one a bit more than you two did so I'm ready! LOL


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7495 comments Yes, I am really curious to see where this goes.


message 32: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments my library has the next one....

are you guys interested in a July buddy read of #2?


Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7495 comments Well I am not sure. The next one looks like it was released as Wonder in 2014 but according the the author it is being rereleased as Blood of Wonderland in 2017.

"It is the Harper Collins version of The Wonder. There have been many changes to this edition, however. It's longer, it's cleaner and just a better read, I believe."

Book three has not been published so either way, we would have to wait to finish the series so part of me thinks I may just wait for the harper collins rerelease.


message 34: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 3 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments oooooooh....good catch. I didn't see that at all

I guess we'll meet back up in 2017 :D
