* I've managed to read one book, which was Alice by Christina Henry and I really enjoyed it, despite the strong rape and violent scenes.  I was going to read another book after Alice, but I wasn't able to, but the fact that I still completed one book during this readathon was still a huge accomplishment!

    1. Ah, I didn't realize that it was a retelling as well! Sounds like a dark one!

  2. Yay! Congrats in reading Alice! Too bad about the violent scenes you mentioned. I was curious about it because it was based on Alice in Wonderland, but you mentioning about the scenes makes me hesitant.

    1. Yeah, this book does have a lot of violent scenes that might not go over too well with many people.
