The Friday 56 (52) Untamed by A.G. Howard

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE

Synopsis from Goodreads...

Alyssa Gardner went down the rabbit hole and took control of her destiny. She survived the battle for Wonderland and the battle for her heart. In this collection of three novellas, join Alyssa and her family as they look back at their memories of Wonderland.

In Six Impossible Things, Alyssa recalls the most precious moments of her life after Ensnared, and the role magic plays in preserving the happiness of those she loves. Alyssa’s mother reminisces about her own time in Wonderland and rescuing the man who would become her husband in The Boy in the Web. And Morpheus delves into Jeb’s memories of the events of Splintered in The Moth in the Mirror, available in print for the first time.

This collection expands upon Ensnared's epilogue, and includes some deleted scenes to provide a “director’s cut” glimpse into the past and futures of our favorite Splintered characters...

Untamed (Splintered, #3.5)"He hesitates. There are other stories, too, about the fairy-kind. That some are tricky and deadly."--Untamed by A.G. Howard

  1. I have seen this around and the cover makes me stop every time. A G Howard and Marissa Meyers, Cinder, are the ones that pop into mind.

  2. One of my best friends is absolutely obsessed with Alice in Wonderland so I'll have to ask if she knows about this yet!

  3. There are so many great retellings now. I'm reading Winter by Marissa Meyer and love her versions of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel. My retelling this week is from the Sherlock Holmes world. I am spotlighting A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro. Happy reading!

  4. My favorite when I was a little girl was Cinderella. I relate much more to Belle from Beauty and the Beast now. I'd love for you to check out mine... http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsACFTW

  5. I love that cover, and I've always enjoyed Alice in Wonderland and the metaphors that arise from it. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine, not a fairytale: ”THE PRICE OF SALT”

  6. Although I rarely read stories that feature magic or fairy tales, this collection sounds like fun.
    My Friday post features WATERCOLORS IN THE RAIN.
