Alice in Wonderland is a classic tale about a girl who enters a whole new world through a rabbit hole. She is trying to find her way home but she gets sucked into her own curiosity. On her journey she finds many friends and discovers new possibilities.
I would use this book starting in 3rd grade. I would use it in a Wonder unit or even as a free read when there is free time in between classes.
The story of Ryder and Tiffany continues in this second book. You should read Marked For Death before you read this one.
As Ryder and Tiffany are getting settled in a life together, she can't help wondering if she is really cut out for the biker lifestyle. Tiff loves Ryder like no other man before, but certain things that she sees in the biker's way of living she is not too keen on...danger....violence....whores....etc.
When something happens to Darkness, president of the Blind Jacks, all hell breaks loose. While trying to contain that situation, it becomes apparent that Tiffany's ex has found her again. Not wanting to bring more problems to the bikers, Tiff makes a rash decision that almost pushes Ryder over the edge. Tiffany finally realizes that her and Ryder really do belong together and together is how they confront her crazy ex-husband.
All the suspense leading up to the confrontation was really enjoyable and made me want to keep reading. I really enjoyed the characters of Ryder and Tiffany. They were both fun and believable. I also loved the situation between Darkness, Sammy and Rose. They added some extra fun into the intense drama with Ryder and Tiffany.
I think I found a new favorite book. No, really! I meant to read this graphic novel during Halloween since I heard from many people that it's quite the spooky read. Unfortunately, Life happened and I didn't get around to reading it until now. And I am so glad I did! It's everything I love in a horror graphic novel and more! I stood up till five in the morning reading this and I was quite spooked, especially with that last story!
Through the Woods is a collection of five horror stories accompanied by grotesque art to add to the scary elements, and it works great together. Emily Carroll did a fantastic job of keeping each story straight to the point and the reader always on the edge of their seat. Each story takes some inspiration from fairy tales and the true horrors each one contains. I will not tell you anything about the stories themselves because it's supposed to be scary. If I tell you anything about them then that gives away the suspense factor. Horror is a genre best going in blind so trust me when I say that there's something spooky in here for everyone to enjoy. The last story really made my skin crawl. *BA DUM TSSS*
The art is fantastic! I've already touched on this a little bit, but if you are someone who likes their horror more visual, then read this book. Carroll's artwork is beautiful but when it comes to creeping out the reader, she is not afraid to enter into the world of the macabre. There's blood and murder and grotesqueness all over this book so if you are squeamish, you might want to skip this one. But if the violence doesn't bother you, then I highly recommend you read this book!
It's fast, action-packed, beautiful, and horrifying. If you love reading horror, then I think you should pick up this graphic novel. It's perfect for the dark and colder nights this time of year! I hope you enjoy this story collection as much as I did!
