Book Review: Insanity (Mad in Wonderland) by Cameron Jace

Image
After accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder is now a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. No one doubts her insanity. Only a hookah-smoking professor believes otherwise; that he can prove her sanity by decoding Lewis Carroll's paintings, photographs, and find Wonderland's real whereabouts. Professor Caterpillar persuades the asylum that Alice can save lives and catch the wonderland monsters now reincarnated in modern day criminals. In order to do so, Alice leads a double life: an Oxford university student by day, a mad girl in an asylum by night. The line between sanity and insanity thins when she meets Jack Diamond, an arrogant college student who believes that nonsense is an actual science.

Book Wrap Up (No. 11)

I would never read a book if it were possible for me to talk half an hour with the man who wrote it. –Woodrow Wilson I haven't read a lot of books in the last couple of weeks, mostly it is because I am not rushing. I set my Goodreads reading challenge goal to 80 books, I knew personally I would never be able to read 100 book or more for a year because it's a little exhausting. So I am keeping to a pace of reading one night and not the next day, that way I get to spend time doing other things. 

1. Snow White Sorrow (The Grimm Diaries) By Cameron Jace.

This book follows a seventeen year old vampire hunter named Loki, he has been hired to kill Snow White, as in the original Snow White in the fairytale. I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads because Cameron's writing is incredible, I like the pace of the story, the steps to reveal each clue and twist. I thoroughly en…

What I Got For Christmas 2015

I should have written a blog post at the end of the year, but my body was telling me to relax and watch a bit of Netflix.
I feel like I procrastinate about work on this blog too many times, that it just something of an excuse instead. It has now been 4 months since I have come back from Thailand but it feels like a year, weird. If you don't have a job or your still in education, the one thing you should know is, is that even though you love your job and the people you work with, the system/business/money making side of work makes you feel tired and feel like the other side do not understand when we are trying to say. Enough of the work update.
On with this blog post!
So I ordered some book on Christmas day which I am counting as my birthday treat.
