This is not the story of the Wonderland we know. Alice has not fallen down a rabbit hole. There is no all-knowing cat with a taunting smile. This is a Wonderland where beneath each smile lies a secret, each tart comes with a demand, and only prisoners tell the truth.
Dinah is the princess who will one day reign over Wonderland. She has not yet seen the dark depths of her kingdom; she longs only for her father’s approval and a future with the boy she loves. But when a betrayal breaks her heart and threatens her throne, she is launched into Wonderland’s dangerous political game. Dinah must stay one step ahead of her cunning enemies or she’ll lose not just the crown but her head.
Evil is brewing in Wonderland and maybe, most frighteningly, in Dinah herself.
This is not a story of happily ever after.
This is the story of the Queen of Hearts.
Thoughts: A quick and easy read, I was strangely surprised that I enjoyed it. While I tend to enjoy the idea of fairy tale retelling, I never find ones I actually truly enjoy. This story was a strangely lighthearted reading for such a dark theme. An 8/10 story, but 9 1/2 /10 fairy tale retelling 💛

This book should be a must read for everyone, no matter your race, class or background. I learnt so much about Britain’s history with race and how structural racism has become so established in the UK. I thought I was educated and aware. I am not. It’s eye-opening, anger inducing (at myself, our politicians, our media and what’s been done) and essential reading.
The sun didn't shine today. So I spent my Saturday lazily with a book and a cup of hot coffee
I'm still reading Royal Assassin. At one point I felt Fitz was too emotional about his romantic relationship with Molly. The perfect words for Fitz's situation in Bahasa Indonesia are "galau dan baper" 😂😂😂. Reading high fantasy novel, actually I don't really like too much romance in it. But it was okay, though. 😬
