BBC_Radio_logoNew year, new BBC dramatizations to listen to, or so it seems :P.

Two weeks of free audio books had gone by…

Yes, it’s already been two weeks and I haven’t even listened to half of the books I want, even though I’m rather happy with my progress. I don’t think I’ll gather myself to write full reviews of these books, but I think I could write few sentences about them.

Top 5 Wednesday – Gateway Books to Your Favorite Genre

imgresIt is so hard to pick just one book from your favorite genre. And it’s hard to choose just 5 genres too apparently, but I guess these will have to do. Maybe these aren’t the perfect choices, but I love these books and I think they might make good starters :).

5. EnchantedFairytale retellings

Enchanted by Alethea Kontis – A cute and cuddly story that I loved. Maybe it’s more of a fairy tale itself rather than a retelling, but it has plenty of elements from more and less known tales.

It’s romantic, very nice and easy to read and it has some great characters.

Dynamite Entertainment takes readers down the rabbit hole and into the astonishing world of Lewis Carroll with The Complete Alice in Wonderland. This comic book adaptation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Written by John Reppion and Leah Moore, illustrated by Erica Awano, and based on the original story by Lewis Carroll.

Oooh Alice, what else could be said about her story. There were so many versions and retellings out there. Some are original, some… not so much. Some simply try to make the story more approachable. Continue reading “Down the rabbit hole”
