Mini-Reviews: Follow the White Rabbit - Kellie Sheridan

Follow the White Rabbit -  Kellie Sheridan
Follow the White Rabbit (Beautiful Madness, #1)
For centuries, Wonderland thrived as the domain of beautiful bedlam and unapologetic madness. It was a place like no other. All it took was one girl slipping in through the cracks of the universe to start chaos spiraling toward order. In the 150 years since Alice’s visit, the realm has become tainted—almost normal. Rabbits in waistcoats and playing card minions are little more than creatures of myth, and Wonderland is literally falling to pieces.

For Gwen, Rose, and Lucky, Wonderland is home, and yet they know little of its former glory. When the Alice prophecy resurfaces, they’ll have one chance to use Wonderland’s own legends to bring a little mayhem back into their reality. For she who controls Alice controls the fate of Wonderland.

This was such a fun little novella! With it being only a 100 pages long, I read through it pretty quickly and really enjoyed it. It was a modernised retelling of Alice in Wonderland, setting the scene of what would happen if Alice was to return to Wonderland. I really liked it. The characters were fun and quirky, I was intrigued by the events that had begun to unfold and am really looking forward to reading the next book. I loved how everything comes full circle in this book and am really intrigued about further character development. Really well written and an easy read, I'd recommend it for a quick dose of Alice-esque madness!
