Splintered by A.G. Howard

4 OUT OF 5 STARS

There was only one thing that I sort of didn’t like about this: the love triangle. I don’t mind a good love triangle, but it was too “high school” ย for my taste. BUT this is a YA book, so it is fitting. I just would have liked it to be a little more mature. Mature as in owning up to those feelings. Not as in the love scenes and all that. Anyway, I just had to get that out of the way so I could talk about the fun stuff… ๐Ÿ™‚

What I LOVE about this is the story! Yes, so basically I really like this book. I love the background it gave to the Liddell family. In this, the women are supposedly cursed. Cursed with a mental instability. In the real world, they can hear bugs and insects talk to them. It started with Alice but the story is about Alyssa, her great-great-great granddaughter (I think I got that right…). So I like how this was passed on through their generations. So Alyssa is on a mission to go to Wonderland and get rid of the curse.

By the way, I was surprised to know who the love triangle involved. I’ll give you a hint: one of them is from Wonderland ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first, but man… by the end of it I sorta liked it ๐Ÿ˜ I’m not in a hurry to complete the series (oh ya, I learned there’s like 2 or 3 more books to it) but I do plan on continuing it.

    • That’s exactly what drew me to it in the first place! ๐Ÿ˜† Love reading different twists on stories we already love ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. I read this once, a long time ago, and never finished it. Is it worth picking up again? I like books involving mention of Carroll. Does he make an appearance (mention wise) in this series, do you know?

    • Carroll isn’t IN it, but he is mentioned as a family friend who wrote it, if I’m remembering correctly. And to me, because I didn’t care for the way the romance was, I could have done without reading it. It’s not totally MY cup of tea. But since I started it I plan on finishing it and hope it’ll only get more exciting ๐Ÿ˜Š It would be something I would recommend to a young lady who also loves Alice In Wonderland. A young reader who doesn’t have much experience with romanticism and dreams of such flirty and jealous encounters lol.
