Lit-Cube Unboxing (May 2016)
This month’s EPIC THEME OF AWESOME:
Through the Looking Glass
Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews threw a bunch of glitter at my head, dropped to her knees, and BEGGED me to post up pictures of this unboxing so she could sob with jealousy (she’s a masochist, I swear!) and of course I just couldn’t deny her. I mean honestly–GLITTER! I can’t say no to the sparkles.
And just LET ME TELL YOU, before we get into this–this month’s box?!?!?! BEYOND. EPIC. I am in love with absolutely everything I received, and I just…gah. GAH! Yes.
Obligatory “ME in the shirt with one of my favorite fictional men” shot. Because, y’know, I can.
What the shirt says! You can’t really tell because my camera sucks, but the shirt is black and has neon pink text/images.

Alice Takes Back Wonderland, by David D. Hammons
After ten years of being told she can’t tell the difference between real life and a fairy tale, Alice finally stops believing in Wonderland. So when the White Rabbit shows up at her house, Alice thinks she’s going crazy.
Only when the White Rabbit kicks her down the rabbit hole does Alice realize that the magical land she visited as a child is real.
But all is not well in Wonderland.
The Ace of Spades has taken over Wonderland and is systematically dismantling all that makes it wonderful. Plain is replacing wondrous, logical is replacing magical, and reason is destroying madness. Alice decides she must help the Mad Hatter and all those fighting to keep Wonderland wonderful.
But how can she face such danger when she is just a girl?
Alice must journey across the stars to unite an army. She discovers that fairy tales are real in the magical world beyond the rabbit hole. But they are not the fairy tales she knows.
Fairy tales have dangers and adventures of their own, and Alice must overcome the trials of these old stories if she wants to unite the lands against Ace.
With the help of Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snow White and heroes old and new, Alice may have the strength to take back Wonderland.
All the goodies together in one shot!
And, of course, a not-so-obligatory shot of me OFFICIALLY BEATING my record of books balanced on my head–this time, focusing on a few OTHER retellings.
