{REVIEW} Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Title: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Author: Lewis Carroll
Series: Stand-alone
Genre: Classics, Fantasy, Fiction
Publication: March 6th 2014 (first: 1865)
Rating: ★★★★☆ +0.5


When Alice follows the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole, she finds herself in an enchanted world, filled with creatures like the Mad Hatter, the disappearing Cheshire Cat, and the Queen of Hearts. Alice quickly finds out that nothing is as it seems in the wild world of Wonderland.

I've been dying to read this for so long! Alice in Wonderland was always one of my favorite stories/classics and I loved watching movies or listening to my parents whenever they read the book to me. Finally owning a copy (and such a pretty one at that!) and being able to re-read this little gem whenever I want, really means a lot to me.

To be honest, I've been obsessed with Alice when I was younger. I just loved it so much. Wonderland seemed like an awesome place to be with all those amazing characters and since so many authors are writing retellings of various classics now, I'm kind of back to loving all these old stories.

"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

I also rewatched 1999's Alice in Wonderland which I adored! The movie is kinda ridiculous but then again so is the book and I like it so much BECAUSE of that. I also noticed that the dialogues are mostly the same, so that's an added plus! Definitely one of my favorite Alice movies.

What else can I say? It's a classic. I love it. That's basically everything you need to know - go read it, if you haven't already, it's definitely worth it. ;)

  1. I SO need to read this book! I am obsessed with the Splintered series and the new Disney Alice movie(s), but I've never read the original! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
