Curiouser and Curiouser: Steampunk Alice in Wonderland
Curiouser and Curiouser: Steampunk Alice in Wonderland | Melanie Karsak
15 posts | 5 read | 38 to read
To save the Hatter, Alice must work with the one man she despises so much that she might still love him.

Alice thought she'd turned over a new leaf. No more working for Jabberwocky. No more making deals with the ruthless Queen of Hearts. No more hanging around The Mushroom with tinkers, tarts, scoundrels, and thieves in London's criminal underbelly. But she'd been bonkers to dream.
Hatter's reckless behavior leads Alice back to the one person she never wanted to see again, Caterpillar. Pulled into Caterpillar's mad schemes, Alice must steal a very big diamond from a very royal lady. The heist is no problem for this Bandersnatch. But protecting her heart from the man she once loved? Impossible.

But the question is, can a person dream while she is awake?
Perhaps, if she has the right looking glass."

With this one it was a lot less Alice in Wonderland than I expected 🤔 pick is maybe a little strong, but it's too good for so-so. Very enjoyable read, with some dark elements I didn't see coming right away. Moved away from the original story but tied itself in at times to keep the spirit alive. Not so much a steampunk version as it was a completely alternative retelling. Definately enjoyed reading it though ❤💜💙

JosieG I definitely feel like they need an option between "Pick" and "So-So" because quite a few books fall in that grey area. 1y

Wow! @Elle_Skeldon you went above and beyond! I love everything in this package (can‘t wait to try the coffee and popcorn). I have not read either book and have both on my TBR. The Alice retelling is high on the list too. Super excited for that one. And it‘ll be nice to delve into the Jeter, a classic and basis for the genre. I love the bookmark from my favorite steampunk series... so far... Parasol Protectorate! ⬇️

Mollyanna I am totally framing the coffee percolator design for my kitchen, and I have a feeling that I just got a new favorite coffee cup. Everything was perfect. Thank you so much. I can‘t even begin to express my appreciation for your thoughtfulness ☺️ 2y
TheBookKeepers 😍😍😍😍 2y
Elle_Skeldon I am so happy you like it all! It was so much fun to put together. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for you to open it ! I hope the coffee is good, I have never had it but it smelled SOOO strong. The Highlander Grogg is delish btw! Thanks again. (edited) 2y
Mollyanna As soon as I finish the current coffee I‘ve got Koffee Kult is up next. It does smell good! Glad you like the Highlander Grogg. I love Berres coffee and it‘s local to my area. I can‘t wait to start the Alice book 😄 2y

What a fantastic morning! Thank you SO MUCH @callunakeep for your generosity and superior stalking skills. We are all having a fun time playing dress up with the 🎩 and I‘m pretty sure that gummy sharks are my favourite way to bid adieu to an exceptionally long week. And the books! 😍😍😍 I‘m wearing the necklace to work and bringing the Alice steampunk book too - I am so excited and grateful! #steampunkgoespostal

This turned to be such a fun book! We have Alice retelling everywhere but this is the first that goes light in the fantasy and instead leans more towards contemporary and sci-if. I love the steampunk elements but my favorite part is how well the story and characters of Alice meshed so well with a Victorian London setting that weaves it's way through back alleys and shady business dealings. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

Only about an hour and forty minutes left in this! I love the more contemporary take on Alice in Wonderland! I think this may be the only retelling of it that has taken much of the fantasy elements out and instead interject a more sci-if twist (steampunk). Excellent narration as well.

Started this today as well! I love that while it is obviously an Alice retelling, it still provides a completely unique experience. Really good so far!

✨I understand that publishers and editors aren't perfect and sometimes mistakes spilt through the cracks, but when there's a spelling error or grammatical error on every other page, it really does start to take away from the experience. 😔
✨I'm not trying to be the grammar police, but c'mon.. it's part of the job, no? 👀
✨It's a good book, aside from the mistakes and it being a little lackluster. Maybe I'm just a stickler. 🙈🙊

Leelee.reads I think it's a reasonable expectation that a published book be effectively edited. Definitely impacts the reading experience when it's full of errors. 2y
Birdsong28 It is reasonable to ask that most of the errors are rectified. I had a history book that was 200 years out of date in one chapter to the era it was talking about when it stated a date, it really put me off reading anything else by that author incase she did it again. Here's hoping she knows her dates as I have two other books yet to be read. 📖📚 2y
abbsinwonderland @Leelee.reads @Birdsong28 ahhh! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. You'd think it'd be kind of common sense? 🙈 I get nervous saying how I feel sometimes on here because I'm already been told I'm rude and offensive. I was just sure this post would be another round of that. 🙊 2y

abbsinwonderland It's really hard to enjoy a book when I feel like I need to grab a red ink pen and fix their errors lol 2y
Birdsong28 @abbsinwonderland Always say what you feel if the auidence have a problem its some issue they have with themselves and that you've hit a nerve and they don't want to admit it. 📖📚 2y
AnansiGirl You're in good company on this one. I've bailed on books that had obvious grammatical errors. 2y

Happy to add another Alice retelling to my ever-growing collection. Pictured are a couple of my favorites but there are still many in my collection I haven't read.
