Back to Wonderland
Published: January 7th 2014 by Amulet Books
Series: : Splintered #1
I did enjoy Splintered, but I can't say I fell in love with it. I also wasn't clamoring to read the sequel, but being that this was our book club book of the month I was pretty much forced to. I'm glad I did though, since I wound up enjoying this one so much more than the first.
One of my biggest complaints of the first was that is was so confusing. Thankfully this one didn't feel the same. I think I lot of that is now the majority of the story takes place in the human realm instead of Wonderland. I'm sure it also helped being familiar with all the characters.
I wasn't really a fan of Jeb in this one though. He just seemed so bland, and made a lot of the love triangle fall flat for me. But luckily the love story isn't the main plot point with this.
Then of course there's the ending, which I really didn't see coming. I definitely makes me excited for the next book, far more than I had been to read this one.
Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!
