Adventures Through Wonderland TBR

September readathon TBR #2!

This readathon is a collaboration between A Touch of Whimsy and Middle Grade Monthly!

Each round of the readathon will take place in a different magical world. This round is Wonderland.

This runs for the entire month of September and has 7 prompts, or locations on the map, to complete.

Before we get into the TBR, I just wanted to warn you that I know literally nothing about any of these books 😅 I’m really new to middle grade and don’t want to go in with any expectations. So I just took rec’s from other reviewers and searched through Goodreads for spooky/fantastical middle grades.

But I did link the Goodreads for each of these if you want to check out the synopses!

1. Down the Rabbit Hole: Read a book set in another world

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

I’ve seen the movie for this countless times, but I’ve never read the book! I bought this gorgeous UK paperback edition with illustrations, so I’m really excite to give this a read!

2. Flower Garden: Read an aesthetically pleasing book

The House With the Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson

I’m assuming this is a middle grade retelling of Baba Yaga. I immediately purchased this UK paperback edition because this cover is to die for.

3. Eat Me, Drink Me: Make yourself a cozy reading snack

I’ll share pictures of whatever I decide to make on my Instagram and in my wrap up!

4. The White Rabbit’s House: Pick up a book for a cozy night in

A Pinch of Magic (A Pinch of Magic #1) by Michelle Harrison

I’ve seen Jade’s absolutely rave about this on her channel! I know nothing about it, but it’s another one I bought because of this STUNNING cover.

5. The Queen of Heart’s Palace: Pick a book you think you’ll love

The Trials of Morrigan Crow (Nevermoor #1) by Jessica Townsend

I’ve seen this one around a LOT and have heard great things! So it’s definitely one that I think I will love too.

6. Cheshire Cat: Pick a strange and mysterious book

The Mystery of Black Hollow Lane (Black Hollow Lane #1) by Julia Nobel

I believe this takes place at a boarding school and that’s really all I need to know. I figured something with the word ‘Mystery’ in the would be perfect for this challenge!

7. The Mad hatter’s Tea Party: Join the live costume party!

The live show is scheduled for October 3rd. So definitely make sure you’re following the hosts on Youtube!

Let me know in the comments below if you’re participating in the readathon! And also drop me any of your middle grade recommendations!!!
