The Of Wonderland Book Club: March 2017

Posted March 1, 2017 by Inge in #OWBookClub, Features / 7 Comments

Hello, Wonderlings!

Thus concludes the second month of our book club. Are you enjoying yourself? We certainly are. It’s been amazing to see the comment section filled with enthusiasm, the Goodreads group filled with discussion, and our TBR lists are growing exponantially with every recommendation.

Our theme for February was badass female characters! We got to read lots of badass books, talk about admirable women, and support girl power all around. We’re not completely done with it yet, though — the Twitter chat will take place on Saturday, March 4 at 6 PM GMT / 1 PM EST / 10 AM PST. Using the Twitter hashtag #OWBookClub, we’ll be chatting with you and asking you questions about February’s books. There’s also going to be a giveaway, which you should definitely check out if you like a certain recent release containing a magic circus… *waves hands magically* We hope to see you there!

On to a brand new month with a brand new reading theme! You have lent us your voices and cast your votes, and you have chosen…

Fairytale retellings!

We are so excited! This was a very close second during last month’s poll, so we’re glad to see you grabbed your second chance. I think this month is going to be very interesting. (Note: they don’t have to be fairytale retellings – they can be retellings of any kind. Shakespeare retellings, classic retellings… as long as it’s a retelling!) I love me some fairytales, and I love me some Disney, and it’s always intriguing to see how people take an existing story and put their own spin on it.

To help you on your way, the four Mistresses of Wonderland have graciously provided you with some recommendations:

Valiant // Of Metal and Wishes // Hunted // The Wrath & The Dawn // The Forbidden Wish
Crimson Bound // Heartless // Cinder // Wildwood Dancing // The Bear and the Nightingale

Are you excited to get started yet? Make sure you let us know what you’ll be reading, either in the comments section or in the Goodreads group! There’s another giveaway exclusively for our Goodreads members, so make sure you check out this thread. I’ll definitely be reading Hunted (Beauty & the Beast), as well as Drown (The Little Mermaid) and The Collectors’ Society (Alice in Wonderland). You only have to read one book, but us faster readers can handle a few more, methinks. 😉

So that’s all for now! All that’s left for me to do is leave you with the poll for April…

Happy reading! What’s on your book club TBR for March?

  1. I get really nervous when there’s voting, because I’m like, “What if I pick the wrong thing? Oh no.” And, then, I am internally screaming while the votes add up, and when I see that I am the only one who voted for something, it’s a crisis. What I am glad for is that you guys allow me to take it back, because I can’t live with that shame. It’d haunt me forever.

    ANYWAY, this is going to be great. I’m very excited. Will go post on the group now.

  2. February was so busy I barely had time to think about the #OWBookBlub 🙁

    BUT I’m really excited about this month’s topic! I still have The Wrath and the Dawn on my TBR, so I might finally pick that up. I also have Longbourn, which is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice from the servant’s POV…

    • That actually sounds really interesting! I hope you enjoy your books. Keep some snacks ready when you read TWATD, because it makes you very hungry 😀
