Waiting on Wednesday #80

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on! 

Title: Unhinged
Author: A.G. Howard
Release Date: January 7th, 2014
Publisher: Amulet

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of. 

That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs. 

As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind. 

If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.

I loved Splintered! Such an amazing retelling of Alice in Wonderland.  Of course, I was ready for its sequel about 20 seconds after finishing the first book, but I still have quite a while to wait until it comes out.  Also, while I like the colors on the cover of Unhinged, that's not at all what I pictured Morpheus to look like...this Morpheus resembles Edward Cullen in a wig...but I digress.  I'm so, so excited to read this one nonetheless.

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  4. I really enjoyed Splintered, too, and am definitely excited to see what happens next in Wonderland. But I'm with you. While I like the colors of this cover, I didn't picture Morpheus as...pretty. I'm not a fan of the cover, but I'm sure the book will be awesome. Great pick!
