Alice in Wonderland Blog Party via The Notebook Sisters - Day 1

Hey people :)

Cait and Mime @theNotebookSisters are throwing a week long Alice in Wonderland blog party to celebrate their blog's 3rd birthday (which I think is pretty awesome) and there are prizes to be won, fun to be had, and a good dose of madness all around! I'm doing this. I'm a little behind, but oh well! Better late than never. If you want to join, check out their post through the link above, link to their post, grab their blog button, and have fun!

I don't claim to own this image.

So for the first day they started with a Tea Party Blog tag:

1. Just Alice: What book cover(s) has made you super curious?

Poison by Bridget Zinn. I haven't read it yet, but I want to! The cover is pretty awesome and it's what drew my attention to the book. I'm hoping the book is as beautiful as its cover.

 2. Mad Hatter: List the craziest character(s) you've ever read.

My mind has gone blank :P Okay,okay, I guess I can think of a couple.

Adeline and Emmeline in "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield. Crazy I tell you.

King Leck in "The Graceling series" by Kristin Cashore. He was creepily crazy, I didn't like him at all.

3. Red Queen, Off With Your Head! What book have you felt like beheading?

Julie and Julia by Julie Powell. I didn't even finish it I was THAT fed up. I wasn't expecting this book to have trashy stuff in it, because the movie was so cute and lovely, but I guess that proves how different books are from their movies. Yick. It was very behead-able.

 4. White Rabbit: What books or series have been insanely popular but you've been "late" to pick them up?

Um....everything? :D I haven't been in the loop lately. I've been trying to read all the books I have in my bookcase that I haven't read yet, so trips to the library have been almost nil. But I did recently read the hunger games after they had been out for quite awhile.

 5. Caterpillar: What's the most confusing book you've read?

Well, I might have to say Alice's Adventures in Wonderland because absolutely nothing made sense! And I just read it for the first time this year, so yeah. It's fresh in my mind and all.

 6. Dormouse: What was the last book that sent you to sleep?

I seem to like falling asleep while reading any of the Lord of the Rings books. Maybe I was just too comfy, Idk.

 7. Cheshire Cat: Book that made you laugh and smile?

The Penderwicks! I was smiling and laughing hysterically throughout :D

 8. Knave of Hearts: Most recent character who stole your heart?

Percy Jackson? Idk. I was rooting for him and Annabeth, but I don't think he stole my heart...

 9. Jabberwocky: Best villain you've read this year?

Count Olaf. Always has an evil scheme cooked up.

 10. Down the Rabbit Hole: What's the latest book/series/author that's completely swallowed your interest?

Splintered and Unhinged have captured my attention and are on the top of my books to read next list!

Happy 3rd birthday Cait and Mime!!!!

Cheers :)


  1. Count Olaf is awesome! I love the way the reader gets to see more of his character in Book 13. (One of my favourite series--I used to be so obsessed with those books.) And I have to agree with you about LOTR. They're just so... lulling. (Careful! The Tolkienites are going to stone us!) :) Thanks heaps for linking up!

  2. I just read all of them this year, and although they aren't my favorite, I did love seeing more of Olaf's character at the end of the series! I feel like the series didn't explain enough and just left you hanging, ya know? That is what I thought, anyway. Sunny is my fave, she is so sweet :)
    YES, lulling is a good word! *ducks* I still have to read the last two books....it's not that I didn't like the first book...it just took me longer than usual to get through it :P And I'm a pretty big LOTR fan!
    Thanks for throwing the awesome party! I am enjoying it :)

  3. Oh! The twins from The Thirteenth Tale. I totally forgot about them. They were, indeed, crazy.

    I'm late to the party for most books and series. I think I actually prefer to wait until all the books are out so I can read them in quick succession. Otherwise, I forget what happened in the previous installment and get lost.

    1. Hi there!

      That was quite a creepy book, I must say. I did keep me on the edge of my seat, and it had a mind-blowing plot twist, but I don't think I'll read it again. Books about crazy people aren't my faves!

      Yes, waiting for entire book series to be written is pure agony. I haven't read "Inheritance" of the Inheritance Cycle yet because I don't feel like re-reading the first three again right now! Those books have a crap ton of vital details in them, so it's hard to remember everything unless you are reading from start to finish :P

      Thanks for checking out my blog :)


I love comments! Please don't be shy, comments make my day special and I'm always excited when I get one :) I try to reply to each and every one of my comments as soon as I can, so please, let me know you're there! You guys are important to me!
