TH Book Club: November Selection - September 17th 2017, 10:57 PM

I said I was going to post this sometime soon and I was going to wait till next week but I have been getting headaches with the heat and it is supposed to get hot again next week.

Since I am feeling decently today I felt like posting this.

I have four books and they are all retellings of some kind. Two are retellings of Alice in Wonderland. Some of these are part of a series. I have heard good things about all of them but am unaware if there was any triggering content. I don't think there is because I don't recall reading about triggers in reviews...but some reviewers do not mention triggers.

This poll will close around the 1st of October as well. My hope is that this will give you enough time to get these from the library for November. Idk how popular they are so I don't know if some of these will have waitlists etc.

I wanted to try and do novels that were a bit 'light' but still fun etc. Retellings are usually fun for a lot of people.

Hope there is one here you like!

I am a fan of Jane Eyre (and Alice in Wonderland) but I adore Jane Eyre so I picked that one.

Jane Steele is the winner.

I think it came out last year but I am not certain so you all might want to check your library to see how many holds it has.
