Book Tag: Alice's Adventures

This tag was made by Falling down the book hole for the Down the read – a – thon hole reading challenge.

And we stole it from Fortunately, the book


Alice in Wonderland: A book that makes you think of your childhood.

Ash- Shadow Children by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This book really got me into reading.
Among the Hidden (Shadow Children, #1)

Jenn: The first chapter book that I can rememer reading. I read it in one sitting and missed dinner to finish it. Now it seems like such a short book but in 6th grade it felt like a feat to finish and I beat it. Loved the book. It was the book that made me love thrillers and horrors. The Dollhouse Murders by Betty Ren Wright

The Dollhouse Murders

Caucus Race: A book with a race or competition you enjoyed. 

Ash- The Selection by Kiera Cass. I actually really enjoyed this series, more than I thought I would.

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

Jenn:  I was hopeful for The Gold Seer Trilogy by Rae Carson when I first saw Walk The Earth A Stranger- but was hesitant too. It was western in style... kind of sort of. I wasn't sure I would enjoy that. This is by far one of my favorite series...

Walk on Earth a Stranger  (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1)

Through the Looking Glass: An Alice in Wonderland Retelling you have read or your favorite Alice retelling.

Jenn: Hmmm I don't think I have read many Alice retellings. I have a bunch on my list to read. I really enjoyed Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter.... although it is a very very loose retelling... sadly I have not read more of the series. Another series I must restart and finish...
