Red Queen
Red Queen | Christina Henry
The author of "Alice" takes readers back down the rabbit hole to a dark, twisted, and fascinating world based on the works of Lewis Carroll... The land outside of the Old City was supposed to be green, lush, hopeful. A place where Alice could finally rest, no longer the plaything of the Rabbit, the pawn of Cheshire, or the prey of the Jabberwocky. But the verdant fields are nothing but ash and hope is nowhere to be found. Still, Alice and Hatcher are on a mission to find his daughter, a quest they will not forsake even as it takes them deep into the clutches of the mad White Queen and her goblin or into the realm of the twisted and cruel Black King. The pieces are set and the game has already begun. Each move brings Alice closer to her destiny. But, to win, she will need to harness her newfound abilities and ally herself with someone even more powerful the mysterious and vengeful Red Queen..."

Last few days of #BFC. Back out on the farm after crossfit today burning some extra calories and making some plants happy! Listening to Red Queen helped the time go by. I would not be able to handle weeding without audiobooks!

Very much enjoyed this continuation to Alice. I love what Christina Henry does with her books. They have this insider sense of understanding. Cause and effect, how consequences are good or bad not just bad. She makes Alice and Hatcher relatable, realistic and always growing.

Fantastic sequel to Alice. As if Through the Looking Glass had been written by the Brothers Grimm. I look forward to reading more from this author. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Book 11 in the O.W.L.s readathon prompt=Defense Against Dark Arts=Read a book with an R in the title (due to Redactum spell).I changed this book from original tbr b/c I made a mistake🙄. In this story, Alice and Hatcher continue their voyage with the purpose to find Hatcher's daughter. You will see more dark and gory adventures but less graphic or frequent than book 1. It is a slow story with some boring scenes.3⭐️End has mix feelings-ok-soso-ok

Well, I made a tentative #24in48 stack. However, I might go rogue and read other things.
Not pictured: Dopesick (audio); Little Darlings (e-arc); Light from Other Stars (e-arc); multiple graphic novels.

I‘ve been exhausted this week, so it there might be more sleep then reading. My goal is to at least get 12 hours in, finish The Royal Art of Poison, and make more of a dent in The Iliad and my steadily growing ARC collection.

I think I've found a new favourite quote in Red Queen. I think it's why we love to read our favourite stories over and over again. Nothing in a book has spoken to me like this in a long time. I think this book is going to be better next time I read it, just like all the books I've re-read in the past.

As soon as I finished Alice I couldn‘t wait to jump in to the sequel. I was a bit disappointed with this one. It isn‘t as dark or addictive as the first book and I found myself getting a bit bored. Is much more character-driven than the first. As a reader who loved plot-driven books I got a bit bored but I did enjoy seeing what happened to Alice and Hatcher. #Retelling #Adult #Horror #3Stars

Finished this at the airport.... I really enjoyed this second installment of the Alice Chronicles. This one had a completely different feel than the first and in the beginning I wasn‘t sure how I was going to feel about it. In the end I loved it. Alice and Hatcher ... and all the characters really ... are very believable for who/what they are. I am definitely a fan of of Christina Henry and want to read more of her works!

Completely forgot to do this yesterday.

1. The sequel to Alice. Alice has survived the perils of the first book and is now on a mad journey through a dark forest full of evil magic and all sorts of fun. Sort of Alice in Wonderland meets The Brothers Grimm so far.
2. Coffee Nut M&Ms
3. Generation X
4. My Kindle
5. Binge watching Stranger Things and watching the Super Bowl with the husband.

✨Well... A little disappointed with the second book in the Alice duology? Series? I have no idea. I'm hoping duology, because it seemed like Henry was running out of ideas, therefore alot of it was drug out and repeated...alot of repetition. 🌹
✨It wasn't bad by any means, but it was pretty hard to want to finish. 🙈
✨I said I was done with retellings for a bit, but do Russian ones count? Next up- Vassa in the Night 📚
4/5

PirateJenny Duology. Her newest is about Hook. Not that I've made it to any of them yet (story of my life) 2y

GlassAsDiamonds Perhaps Six of Crows & Crooked Kingdom? NOT retellings but also not light and fluffy... Anything by Kerry Greenwood or Lee Child? 2y
natidi08 What's you're favorite Alice retelling? Or which would you recommend? 2y
abbsinwonderland @natidi08 honestly, right now, I'd say this series of retelling is. It's very dark and kind of brutal, but I love the way the characters have been mixed together. I enjoyed Heartless by Marissa Meyers too, although that book was pretty conversational and lot of people had mixed emotions on it. Nonetheless, I enjoyed that one alot too. 2y
natidi08 @abbsinwonderland Cool, I'll add it to my TBR, then! I read Heartless and liked it a lot. Also read the Alice in Zombieland series though that one shouldn't even be classified as a retelling per se... But I enjoyed that one as well. 2y
abbsinwonderland @natidi08 I've been really undecided on the Zombieland series because Im very opinionated about zombies lol. But if you enjoyed Heartless as well, I'll definitely have to check out the Zombieland series next probably! I wanted to order it last time I ordered books 2y

Have you ever read a line from a book and thought that it encapsulates your feelins about this book perfectly? Because this line is it. I want to finish this book but honestly I genuinely dont care what happens any more in this book! I am no longer interested in this book. I am over half way and I just dont care. I guess this is a bail and this quote is why. I'm good.

TheNextBook @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I usually have a method when it comes to bailing. If it takes me 3 days to read 100 pages then it's an automatic bail. This book though I read a 100 pages in a day, I really enjoy this author so I was hoping it would get better and it just isnt and I am not invested at all. I took a break to read Deathly Hallows and this just isnt cutting it. 2y

Loved the second book in this Alice series! It is a different setting from the first yet still manages to be a cohesive world with the settings and characters of the first tale. I did like how the author separated Alice from the male protagonist and let her come into her own even more. I wished there was a bit more back story on the white queen and red queen, but otherwise a fantastic read!

398.2 The first one has been on my TBR list for awhile now. I need to get to it. This one sounds good too. 3y
sparrowssavvy @398.2 I love the unique take on the Alice in Wonderland concept. And it wasn't the completely stereotypical concept that can sometimes be seen in Alice retellings. I'd love to hear your thoughts when you read it! 3y

I liked this one...but I liked it less than the first. Rather than being based on Through the Looking Glass (seriously why can no one adapt that?) it seems to be based on Germanic folklore. There are dark woods and goblins and fire demons and a queen that if I'm not mistaken has her roots in the Snow Queen story. A great book really, but not the wonderland based sequel I wanted.

So, I wasn't sure whether I was going to read this because the first book, Alice, was almost a little too violent for me. There is a lot I can handle, but there is a line. However, I AM SO GLAD I READ THIS. I loved it much more than the first. This one is still a dark and twisty ride, but with more adventure and less gore. I do hope the author writes more, but I was satisfied with the ending either way.

Reviewsbylola I love this cover. 3y
BethM @Josie I wasn't awed by the first one. I thought it was good but not great and I didn't end it with the feeling of having to read #2. Is it worth it? 3y
Josie @BethM I felt the same way with the first! But I was intrigued enough about Jenny to continue. I felt that it was worth the read. It was a quick read, and was actually very different from the first, so I enjoyed it a lot more. 3y

My first #Halloween read is Red Queen by Christina Henry! I absolutely LOVED Alice, which is the 1st installment of The Alice Chronicles (this is the 2nd). It's extraordinarily dark & gritty with plenty of psychological creepiness. This severely ADULT re-telling of the Wonderland tale is exquisite but not for the faint of ❤️.
