Splintered (Splintered, #1)Splintered by A.G. Howard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I really cannot say enough how much I loved this story. There's SO much more to Wonderland than what you've read, seen, or thought. From the start, I was so entranced, I just had to know what was going to happen next, how the secrets would come out, how our main characters would make it out alive!! Alyssa & her best friend, Jeb, are on a journey to fix an old family's curse & basically to fix what Alice messed up in Wonderland. They do these things with the help of a mysterious, manipulative, question mark kind of dude. (And NO, it's not the Mad Hatter, although, it would have made much more sense if it was.) His name is Morpheus, and perhaps we'll never know his true name, but it is someone who you should be familiar with if you know the 'story'. I had to give this book 4 stars instead of five because of him. Why? Because at first, I was like, "Yea, he's going to be a friend and help out these two that have ALL this stuff to get through just to go back home." Then, I was like, "Really? You made them go through ALL this so it benefits you, too?" But, hey it's okay, because he CARES/CARED. That's what I have a problem with...these supposed heroes making the heroine go through stuff and at the same time, anger them while making them do something they obviously do not want to do but must if ya want to get back home.(I get that.) Your intentions, Morpheus, were in the right place. How you went about getting those intentions fulfilled is where you messed up. I had a hard time with liking Morpheus. Yes, he redeemed himself. I guess I'm just trying to say that I felt it was unnecessary for him to do ALL that, instead of coming out with it in the beginning. It was such a back and forth with Morpheus. Up until the end. I loved this story. It's not what you think at all. It's a beautiful, haunting, imaginative expansion on what has happened since Alice was in Wonderland...all with some mystery, intrigue, and something new that'll keep you glued to this story. I can only imagine what the next book will be like. I'm excited and giddy to find out!!

#BlogTour: STORMING THE CASTLE by Arianna Hart

About the Book

Sam Castleton has fame, houses all over the world, and one really big problem—he’s got an album due and he can’t write. All he wants is a quiet place to get his head straight. Dale, Georgia, seems like the perfect quiet spot to try to hear the music again and get some lyrics down on paper.

With her daughter’s paternal grandparents making a sudden appearance and the difficulties of running her own lodge and being a single mom, Faith Adams doesn’t have the time to worry about the mysterious stranger staying in one of her cottages, no matter how sexy he is.
Her newest guest may be surly, but his money is good, so she’s willing to overlook his surly nature. If only she could ignore the way he awakens a searing hunger in her...


Excerpt
Faith finally gave up trying to sleep at five in the morning. She’d tossed and turned all night, reliving the kiss and imagining what she could have done differently. 

The pull of attraction had been there through the whole meal, but she’d thought s…
