Wonderland an Anthology edited by Marie O’Regan and Paul Kane

The interesting thing about anthologies is the fact that you may love one story and hate the next. You have to be strong willed when reading them, you have to give it a chance. I really didn’t enjoy the first story I read in this one, I wanted to give up and say nope this isn’t for me, but I moved on in the hopes that I would love the next. Spoiler, I did, and I loved many more after that.

Each story had a side of whimsy that makes you take pause and think you might be reading a Lewis Carroll creation, but it is soon revealed you’re not in the same world, not even a little bit. Creatures in the night, mysterious scenes of horror, and loving tales of family snap you out of your daydream and thrust you down a rabbit hole you may not be prepared for. These stories are not for the faint of heart. They may terrify you or make your head spin with possibilities, but it’s worth every moment.

Synopsis

Join Alice as she is thrown into the whirlwind of Wonderland, in an anthology that bends the traditional notions of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel, featuring ghosts, medieval quests, demons and cyborgs. Contributors include the bestselling M.R. Carey, Genevieve Cogman, Catriona Ward, Rio Youers and L.L. McKinney.

I've always loved to read. When I was a kid we lived right next door to my local library and I went several times a week. I fell in love with the stories hidden inside the pages of the books on the shelf. It was a good time in my life. I fell head over heals in love with reading the summers we lived in that house.  Fast Forward to today and that love is still there, but it got pushed aside for many years. After I got married at 21 and we started a family at 24 I let my love for reading take a backseat. I continued to read but I didn't devour books like I use to when I was young. The Kindle took the place of physical books and board books and homeschool curriculum reigned.  I got lost in the world of planners and journals and while I still love that side of my life I craved more. I craved less buying and more living. I craved the stories of my childhood. I craved books. And so my new story begins. The story of a LovelyreaderGirl who is rediscovering her journey through book land. Come with me! Let's discover the world of books again together!
