Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.
This week I am totally pining for Splintered by A.G. Howard. I LOVE Alice in Wonderland so any book having to do with it is going to catch my interest. Especially when it's a creepier take on it.

For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell -- the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll's famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers ... the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.
When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on.
There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.
This sounds freaking amazing!! I am so excited for it. January is so, so , so far away!!! *cries* So what book are you obsessing over this wonderful Wednesday? Please leave me a link and I will pop over to your blog. :)
