  Good Sunday all , hope you are having a fantastic weekend . Today I have a new author and he retelling of a favourite story of mine . EVER ALICE  by H.J Ramsey . 

                             BOOK BLURB 

  Alice’s stories of Wonderland did more than raise a few eyebrows—it landed her in an asylum. Now at 15 years of age, she’s willing to do anything to leave, which includes agreeing to an experimental procedure. When Alice decides at the last minute not to go through with it, she escapes with the White Rabbit to Wonderland and trades one mad house for another: the court of the Queen of Hearts. Only this time, she is under orders to take out the Queen. When love, scandal, and intrigue begin to muddle her mission, Alice finds herself on the wrong side of the chopping block.

                          MY REVIEW 
  When poor Alice's telling's of Wonderland go on for so long , it ends up getting her put into and Asylum. Now that she is fifteen , she just wants to leave even if that means doing an experimental procedure that could take Wonderland away from her forever .  When the white rabbit shows up at the last minute to take Alice away to help save Wonderland and take out the Queen of hearts . Will she be able to do the task or will love . a scandal and some intrigue get in the way of her finishing her mission. Will Alice find herself on the wrong side of the axe . 

  When you think of a retelling of Alice you wonder what the author will do to make them more exciting and fresh . This author puts poor Alice through it. Alice is now fifteen and she is a shy young woman who just wants to belong .  When she gets to Wonderland we see her find her legs and starts to come alive when she interacts with the Queen and the characters of court. Oh my I love the Queen she is well she is absolutely off her rocker . She is one step away from the looney bin . She was such a fun character to read . There are so many more characters that were added which made the wonderland grow even more . We have ghosts this one that are haunting the Queen . 

  This book takes place after the first story of Alice . The author takes us on a emotional ride that will have you reading into the night . This is the first book I read from this author and there were really good aspects of the book and some parts that kind of dragged and felt like you were going around in circles . There were parts of the book that there was so much going on that you kind of felt like you were getting lost in all the hubbub happening . Oh please don't get me wrong I truly enjoyed this retelling of Alice and all the characters the encompass Wonderland . So if you want an interesting retelling of this story check it out . I promise you will enjoy it .
