Hello everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the Summer Blogger Promo Tour hosted by The Book Bratz! Again, for more information on this, click HERE.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to Alice from Wonderland Novels!
My blog, Wonderland Novels, is called what it is because at the time, I liked Alice in Wonderland (still do!), and since it is a book, I figured it’ll fit well for a book blog. When I read, I also feel like I’m in my own little fantasy “Wonderland”, so it’s quite fitting. It was a big bonus that my name was also Alice! 😉
So for my post today, I’m going to talk about Alice in Wonderland characters and their “counterparts” in YA literature, basically, characters in YA lit that are completely unrelated to Alice in Wonderland, but are similar to the tale’s original characters.
1. Cheshire Cat and Grimalkin from The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa
- Well for one, they are both talking cats in fantasy worlds.
- They both disappear at the first sign of trouble, but can both be helpful to the protagonists, Alice and Meghan, respectively.
- They’re both very smart/intelligent. They seem to know things most people wouldn’t know.
2. The Queen of Hearts and Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
- They both have a knack of executing people. The Queen of Hearts is quite known for her famous line, “Off with their heads!” whenever anyone disappoints her (or whenever she is in a foul mood), while Queen Levana also has quite a reputation for killing her own sister and husband, as well as many others.
- They’re both tyrants that forces their will and their rule on their people. The Queen of Hearts kills anyone in Wonderland that doesn’t obey her, and Queen Levana uses lunar magic to make her people love her.
3. Alice and Meghan Chase from The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa
- Like Alice, Meghan is thrown into the Nevernever, a world that she had thought never existed, a world where the impossible becomes the possible.
- Meghan even has her very own Cheshire Cat called Grim, who helps her along the way and despite his many annoyances, saves Meghan multiple times.
- They are also very similar physically; blue eyes and blonde hair.
Thanks for reading, everyone! Stay tuned for future SBPT posts: (The links will go live when posted)
