"It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together."
— Alexander McQueen
What I'm Currently Reading: The Looking Glass Wars
I wished my books were like that
Okay so besides my passion for fashion and all beauty things related I also have a passion for books. I can't get enough of them, I have at least 75 books in my personal library. Ever since I was little my mother used to read to me and buy me tons of books. I still remember my first trip to the library and how many books I came home with and I owe it all to my mother who shared her passion with me. Which is why I wanted to share with you the books that I'm currently reading and hopefully you will want to read it also =-)
The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
The book that I'm currently reading is "The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor" the first book in "The Looking Glass Wars" trilogy. This book is about the "true" story of Alice in Wonderland, where Wonderland is not just a silly childhood story but a real place where things aren't the way we were made to believe in. The book revolves around Alyss Heart the princess of Wonderland and rightful ruler who ends up in London,England thanks to a series of unfortunate events caused by her aunt Redd. As the book progresses we see how Alyss grows up struggling to fit in a world where she is alone and nobody believes her stories of Wonderland. Although the main protagonist of the book is Alyss we also see a glimpse into the life of Queen Redd as she maintains a her reign by means of using black imagination. And a glimpse into Hatter Madigan, Dodge Anders, Bibwit Harte , and the Alyssians ( a rrebellious army against Queen Redd monstrous reign), as they fight to over throw Queen Redd and her tyrant reign. Will Alyss ever get back to wonderland to defeat her Aunt Redd and take her rigthful place as Queen of Wonderland? Can she do it? In the figth of white imagination vs. black imagination who will win. . . . .
What I think:
Let me just say how much I love this book! I'm a big fan of "Alice in Wonderland", I have the book and both movies. So when I discovered this book I was immediately intrigued by the concept of it. I'm actually reading this book for the second time, sine I'm currently waiting for the second and third book (Seeing Redd #2, Arch Enemy #3) to arrive to my house. I'm so excited to see what happens with Alyss and the rest of the Wonderlanders.
