    Well, it seems as though Shannon Hale's hand in our story has come to an end. And what an odd end it was.That wasn't to say I didn't enjoy A Wonderlandiful World, but it just didn't fit as the end of this supposed trilogy. All this time we had been focusing on Raven Queen and Apple White, what was conspiring between the two of them and their status as Royal vs Rebels. How they saw the flaws and reasoning behind being each and how they were finding themselves and their destinies, while helping their friends do the same.And all of a sudden we don't have that anymore.This book focuses on Lizzie, Maddie, Cedar, and somewhat Kitty trying to save their friends from the Jabberwock. The whole entire book focused on that and their feelings, and at the end there was no resolution to the overall plot WHATSOEVER. Now, supposedly, the series will be continuing under a new author focusing on two characters, BUT WHAT ABOUT APPLE AND RAVEN? What the heck!!It was a let down in that sense, but I still had a fun time reading it. We'll see what happens next.

    As an adult male, I sometimes get a funny look when I tell people that I only read Young Adult & Juvie books. In all honesty, I enjoy them far more than many Adult books. Even though they may be written for a younger demographic, they are written by Adults & the subject matter is still very adult (in most cases). I am a huge fan of Monster High & Ever After High (the animated shorts & the dolls), so when the first Ever After High book came out, I read it. I ended up loving it... so in turn I read the sequel & now the third in the series.This is the first book in the series where Raven Queen was not the main character & the story was not centered around her. In A Wonderlandiful World, the story is based around all the characters who originated in Wonderland (Maddie Hatter, Lizzie Hearts, & Kitty Cheshire), as well as Cedar Wood (Pinocchio's daughter). In the events of Unfairest of Them All, Wonderland's greatest foe, the Jabberwocky, was released from its Uni-Cairn prison, lost to wreak havoc on Ever After. It is believed that is will spend its time sleeping & recuperating its strength. Little did the characters know, it would be back so soon.The Jabberwocky is not able to get back to Wonderland like it wants, so instead, it begins transforming Ever After into a place more like Wonderland. The Furniture come to life, all the characters start transforming into something more fitting their names (Raven into a Raven, Apple into an Apple, Briar into a Rose Bush, Goldie into a Golden Lock, etc), and Cedar becomes a real girl... only the Wonderlandians are spared, seeing as how the magic originates from Wonderland.The girls must find a way to defeat the Jabberwocky, before it can get to Book End, because if it succeeds in changing Ever After all the way there... the spell will be unbreakable & their stories will end!This book, like the previous 2, is a happy uplifting quick read. I quite enjoy the language used & the great morals written into it. Other series you may like if you are a fan of this one is Soman Chainani's The School for Good & Evil or Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson.If you are looking for any other book or series suggestions, feel free to message me through my blog or email me at [email protected]

    Spoilers!Gah! Why with that ending!?!? I loved that this book covered a bit more with the secondary characters (Cedar, Kitty, Lizzy, and Maddie) and that there was lots of Wonderland included. However, the ending bothered me! Why make everyone forget? And OMG, can I kill Grimm yet? I hate that guy! Also, I wasn't a huge fan of how this story line was structured. While I enjoy Narrator's involvement in both the books and the shows, I don't like when they fully address the readers. And the ending has a scene which is very much a "Clap if you believe in fairies" moment that made me wanna barf. Then again, this book series IS for kids and I'm sure they just love this involvement to pieces, so I'll hold my cookies and grumble silently to myself. ;D I still love this world and these character and I just got the newest book by the new author. Hoping it's Wonderlandiful!

    The problem with this book wasn't that it wasn't good but that it wasn't a good ending to the trilogy hence the rating. It would have gotten a 4 if it weren't 'the end' (there is a spin off but I am not counting down).

    What in Ever After was A Wonderlandiful World? Regarding its efficiency as a sufficient conclusion to a great series could have done with one last flourish of the editing wand. I loved the story, characters, and themes; the issue lies therein with the execution. I know the author has that ability, but it seems as if her attention was on the Happy Ever After rather than the adventure getting there.The story opened up well enough with the various characters getting ready for the Tiarathon, a triathlon event of running, swimming, and biking. I love when the cast acts together as an ensemble rather than just two or three people at a time. It helps those who don't necessarily prefer the principle characters (such as myself) get their own special "screen time" with the supporting players. Certain events rolled into another that leaves us focused on the ladies from Wonderland and everyone's favorite puppet princess, Cedar Wood. It was nice to step away from Raven and Apple, but aren't they truly the main characters? Wasn't the point of the previous two books establishing their relationship? For nearly 150 pages, I read slogged through unnecessary information until it was time for the climax of the story. Nothing made any sense and I felt as if I was just being distracted as a reader. I had plenty of time to read while waiting for my pedicure yesterday and I was getting impatient with the story.Onto the characters!Cedar Wood: Daughter of PinocchioCedar is one of the sweetest characters and I love the way she is depicted. She is compelled by honesty, but her kindness and sincerity are nice additions to her personality. I also love that she is a POC character in an otherwise predominantly white fairy tale world. She likes to paint and helped play a role in acquiring the vorpal blade to defeat the Jabberwocky. Her plot line was very heartbreaking at times but I would want her on my team anytime.Lizzie Hearts, Daughter of the Queen of HeartsI am glad that I read Suzanne Selfors spin-off series before I read this book because Lizzie lacked most of her charm in this edition. She was more concerned about self-preservation and her throne as well. I loved the appearance of her pet hedgehog, Shuffle. She was my least favorite of the three Wonderland girls.Madeline Hatter, Daughter of the Mad HatterMaddie is such a fun and zany girl that you can't help but admire her pluck. Her constant interactions with the narrator (and reader) were a joy to read. Her silliness is infectious and is an all around great character. The book ended with her and it made zero sense. Typical Wonderland fashion.Kitty Cheshire, Daughter of the Cheshire CatAnd the award for Most Improved goes to Kitty! She was a pleasant surprise. Her cleverness and penchant for mischief are layers that hide her big heart. I loved her character growth throughout the book and readiness to help out her friends in peril. Her sarcasm and humor were much appreciated. She was my favorite Wonderland girl.Well, this final book was not a very concrete nor satisfying ending to this series, but I do have high hopes for the continuation through the television show and spin-off books. It wasn't the ending I wanted, but I did enjoy the first two books. I wouldn't recommend reading this last book unless you love the Wonderland girls or want to complete trilogies. The first two books are sufficient enough to fully understand the world. This last book wasn't just right for this Goldilocks, but I did have the most hexcellent adventure in the land of Ever After.

    I always adore Wonderland characters and I'm so much enjoy reading this book with all the Wonderlandian became the main character.

    This is going to be spoilerific.And this book shouldn't be spoiled, so probably go read it first. You'll thank me later.(view spoiler)[This book stabbed me through the heart. I basically cried from page 150 on. There are a thousand quotes I wanted to write out. About Ceder and feeling real, and dealing with pain for the first time. About Kitty and losing a sense of who and what you are. About Lizzie and homesickness and trying to live up to parental ideals. About Maddie and the narrator-oh god don't start crying again!I took some pictures to illustrate some points:I felt ice in my veins at this point. A dagger in my soul.Something about taking on more than we think we can? Something about stepping into a role in times of crisis? Something about watching a child grow up or a person rise to their potential? I don't know. But omg my heart. And look at that textual treatment. My god. Here we see the book embracing its cheesieness and straight up telling us to pay attention to reader-response theory, but doing so in such a beautiful way.Look at this prose! A monster making monsters! Followed shortly by this:And suddenly this falls sharply into focus. This is one of the ongoing AMAZING things about this series: the intense complexity of choice. This book once again deals with these issues head-on without blinking. It's truly incredible. Finally:#notinneedofrescueSo, I hear you ask (much like Maddie, Kitty, and the narrator), why did you only give it four stars?BECAUSE IN THE END ONLY MADDIE REMEMBERS WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THAT SHIT?!?!?!These girls went through HELL! Their home tried to kill them, their worst nightmare hunted them through the halls, they got to SEE their homeland but couldn't get to it, they were essentially abandoned by the adults that were supposed to take care of them, Maddie watched her father sacrifice himself and nearly die, Ceder got her deepest wish just to have it taken away, they worked together, became friends, fought a monster, had massive epiphanies, and resolved to move forward from here and IT ALL GETS TAKEN AWAY!!These amazing moments like the last picture there, where they realize they can save themselves, where they take their lives in their own hands, where they are set to make meaning out of pain and chaos, and they're all gone. Meaningless! And I want to say Hale must have had a reason? Or (maybe more likely) she had to hit the undo button so the series could continue? She did too good a job? Does anyone know? Because this is some next level bullshit. It made what was otherwise and incredible, flawless book... mediocre. So mediocre it's not even .gif-worthy (and we all know there's an amazing .gif opportunity here).That's not fair. I don't know. It still touched me, but it seems like... cheating? Like I stole something from the girls. Like it should be theirs, not mine. And I know there's these echos of it left that drive them to help Lizzie replant her garden and be kinder to each other but come on. They deserve so much better. They deserve to know they made hard choices but they made them right. They deserve to know they defeated a monster. Ceder deserves to remember what skin felt like. She was all set to go talk to the headmaster, and now she can't. It's bullshit. I'm honestly tearing up at the injustice of it. It's not. fucking. fair.Because otherwise... holy shit what a book.

    So I read this book pretty quickly but to be honest I think I read it so fast just to be done with it. I don't think I am cut out for Wonderland because all of the nonsense and riddilish speak made me crazy and not in a good way. At one point even the narrator is just speaking nonsense and throwing out random words. That is not entertaining to me. I understand that it goes with the plot of the book and the Wonderland aspect but it just was not my cup of tea. I liked seeing the characters from Wonderland being a little more upfront. I actually like Kitty after reading this book where in the past I did not. Same goes for Lizzy and I actually kind of would like to see a Daring/Lizzy relationship.I just wish we got more of the rebel/royal storyline instead of this and to build on that story. I mean you got a piece of it with Cedar and the importance of choice.This book just didn't meet my expectations especially after enjoying the previous two.

    I think this book was great I liked finding out more about the wonderlandians and getting to know more about wonderland. But the main plot never gets resolved!!!! We never find out what happens between Raven and Apple. If Apple gets over herself and accepts the fact that not ever one has a great ending and they want to change it. I need to know, but that was the last book in the series and now that's it I'm so depressed. Overall it was a good book.

    It was cute and everything but it didn't have the same page turning pull of books 1 & 2. However, I know that I'm a grown ass woman and this was not written for me, so I guess my 12 year old self gives it 4 stars.

    For me it was the best book in this trilogy. I like the secondary characters much more than Raven and Apple, so it wasn't as irritating as the first two books. The ending was a bit weird, but I kinda liked it.

    A Wonderlandiful World 3Plot: The Jabberwocky has escaped in Ever After High and won't stop until it squeezes the wonder from all the Wonderlandians he can find to make it seem more like his abandoned land.MY THOUGHTS*"I will not be the daughter who does nothing but watch her wrinkled father writhe with the agony of age and death. Your voice slowly becoming more nasal and oddly high pitched as if you were being strangled by a possum or a weak octopus or something." -Lizzie * "Yeah that's sure to be the hot new scent this summer. Bandersnatch perfume for those special occasions when you want everyone to run away screaming."-Briar *Lizzie and Daring? HMM!*I know it's in Lizzie's nature and all, but kinda annoying when every single word is OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! And she says this even when the situations doesn’t call for it.*Ok so during the curse when the magic starts going haywire, the EAH er's turn into their counterparts. For example, Ashlyn's a shoe, Briar's a rose bush, Apple's an apple, Raven's a raven. I don't get Darings. He's a cute white beast? Ok. I don't get Cupid's either. She's some kind of cake. Wouldn't she be a bow? But Cedar turns into a real girl. Wouldn't she be an inanimate object too like a piece of wood? *And then I don't get the reasoning for why the magic didn't affect her. It was something like because of the Blue Fairy's pre-magic it must have counteracted with the Jabberwocky's magic. That kind of doesn't make any sense. It's like it's saying his magic wakened the magic that was already in her. Ok well now that I put it like that.*I like the image of his breath being so hot it turned her dress to the pages of the Pinocchio story. The designer in me is thinking hmm, fairy tale story dresses illustrated with the pages from the story. Not a bad idea at all!*So I'm not sure what to make of the ending. I kinda expected Lizzie to beat the Jabberwocky with the Vorpal Sword. When she couldn't it would have been a good time to bring in Allister. Isn't he the son of Alice in the EA world? Or maybe he hasn't been added yet? *And then why do they all fall asleep at the end? Was this something the teachers did so they'd all forget about what happened?*I thought it was really brave of Lizzie not to take the easy way out. She could have chosen to abandon her friends (subjects?) and selfishly go back to her land when she saw a way out.Rating: 5 This book was chaotic literally. There were non-sense words thrown in. There were non-sense images (meant to be crosses between Ever After and Wonderland, but it was hard to distinguish either characteristic (so they were neither). And then the ending felt out of place.

    I was really excited to get to this book since it is the last full length novel to the Ever After High series. This series is full of novellas as well and not sure that I will read those. I found I did not enjoy this one as much as the other 2 I have read, but it was still enjoyable.SynopsisAt Ever After High, everyone is expected to sign the Storybook of Legends, pledging to follow in their fairytale parent's footsteps. But when Raven Queen came along, things became fairy, fairy confusing. Now no one's destiny is certain, not even for the most royal of them all, Apple White. When a mysterious being from Wonderland begins to infect Ever After High with a strange magic, everything goes topsy-turvy. The students transform into animals and objects, palace mice talk, and the beautiful green grounds on campus fade to black-and-white. Lizzie Hearts, Wonderland's future queen, Cedar Wood, daughter of Pinocchio, and Madeline Hatter, heir to the Mad Hatter's Hat and Tea Shoppe, seem to be the only ones who haven't completely lost their heads. It's up to them to save their best friends forever after from a curse that threatens to give their school-and their lives-a very unhappy ending.This book continue the story of consequences of the first 2 books and I love how they continued, rather than making a new story. SO now there is a 'mysterious being' wreaking havoc in Ever After. I don't wanna get into who this being is since this is a continuation of the story. I really liked the excitement again in this installment. I also love how all of these books were so fluid and entertaining.As before the characters are so fun and addicting. I love them all and all their quirks and flaws and of course their strengths! I think they are so very relatable, especially to kids who may read this series! Even though they are fairy tale characters, they feel very real when reading their stories. I love that they are not over the top characters, that makes me happy.Since I did not enjoy this one quite as much as the other 2, I am rating this one 3.5 stars. It is still definitely worth the read. A nice wrap up to the Ever After High series. Not sure if I will take on all the novellas in this series. I recommend this of course to everyone who likes to read Middle grade and also those who enjoy fairy tales as well. The series is very different and very fun!

    Výborný třetí díl. Je docela s podivem, jak si všechny díly zachovávají téměř stejnou kvalitativní úroveň, to je ohledně sérií docela vzácný úkaz. V tomto díle se nám změnila perspektiva, děj se soustředí především na Lizzie (dceru Srdcové královny) a Cedar (dceru Pinocchia). Raven i Apple mám ráda, ale změna knize prospěla. Lizzie má bezkonkurenčně nejlepší hlášky. Konflikt Šlechticů a Rebelů byl odsunut na druhou kolej, protože studenti mají tentokrát plné ruce práce s něčím úplně jiným. Je vidět, že Mattel se snaží příběh, co nejvíce natahovat a nespěchá s velkolepými odhaleními, aby mezitím prodal, co nejvíc výrobků, ale tady u té série mi to nevadí, protože to natahování děje se jim daří dovedně. Přeci jen by to byla nuda, kdyby se to celé R vs R drama vyřešilo během deseti stran. No ne? Jasně, že by bylo. Ale i tady v té knize mi něco vadilo. To něco byly přehnané hrátky s vypravěčem. Že Vypravěč interaguje s postavami je zajímavý prvek, ale tady toho bylo moc. A bylo to v takové až moc dětinské formě. Kdyby Hale jen trochu ubrala na hravosti, tak by to bylo akorát. Takhle to vyznělo, jak když jsou některé úseky třetí knihy určené pro mladší čtenáře, zatímco zbytek knihy je pro starší. Na konci mého vydání byla i ukázka k další knize EAH: Next top villain, kterou píše Suzanne Selfors. Přiznám se, že mám trochu strach, co z toho bude a jestli se mi to bude líbit, protože jsem si zvykla na styl Shannon Hale, ale ta ukázka vypadá celkem slibně.

    4 Stars"I wish stories were kinder to their characters...but I guess trouble is more interesting to read about." Really cute and fun as usual, but definetly not my favorite of the three Shannon Hale has written.The characters are all very unique and interesting to read about, but I wish that the main characters had still been Apple and Raven to add some continuity throughout the trilogy. The Wonderland-aspects of the book were really witty for most of the novel, but I started to get a little bit sick of them when they seemed "too convienent" for the problem at hand. The solution to the major problem near the end of the novel actually made me cringe a bit. It felt like a "clap if you believe in faeries" moment. The battle was actually quite dissapointing.Despite this, Shannon Hale has again created an enjoyable tale that won't soon be forgotten.P.S. I also really loved everything with the narrators and Lizzie's "advice" from her mother, like this one: On with its head! JK. :) Behead something today!

    You really need to have read books #1 and #2 to understand the setup. I thought book #2 was better than this one. Still, it was a light read about 3 normally mixed up Wonderland kids who had to set Ever After straight because the Jabberwock got loose. Along the way, Lizzie Heart learned that maybe all her mother's advice wasn't the best and Cedar Wood discovered that she was a real girl after all. The Royals vs Rebels thing continues with the idea that kids should be able to choose for themselves, not have to follow the same stories their parents did.Definitely broke the 4th wall several times. In fact, the Narrator gets infected by the confusion from the Jabberwock and then Maddie Hatter has to take over as narrator. So, it would be an interesting way to discuss narration and other parts of storytelling with the younger set.
