If you love Alice in Wonderland, then a good retelling will be a great way to spend the afternoon.  Here's 12 retellings of Wonderland stories that are all free to read if you are an Amazon Kindle Unlimited Reader.


What is Amazon Unlimited?  It's a fun way to read thousands of books a month for almost no cost!

Simply Join Amazon Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial here with Amazon and for only $9.99 (with a free month!) a month, you can access to all of Amazon's Unlimited Reads.  That's thousands and thousands of books you can read.  Now, you can only "check out" and read ten books at a time, but you can't read that many at one time anyway?  If you are all checked out, Amazon will help you to return one book so you can check out another.

It's almost like having all of Amazon's Kindle Unlimited books as a library directly on your computer.

I have Amazon Unlimited and it's been awesome.  I've read so many fun reads and have even been able to listen to the audio books of those that have that option.  A definite win for me.

And I love fairy tale retellings, so these Alice in Wonderland stories are going to be good!

From the time she was a small girl, Alice Graves has been groomed to be a vampire slayer. While other children learned to jump rope and recite their ABCs, Alice was schooled in the arts of staking, bloodletting, and decapitation.  It's a good thing, too, since she's just followed a giant vampire down the rabbit-hole, and has plunged headfirst into a strange world ruled by an evil Blood Queen.  Welcome to Alice's Vampire Wonderland, where nothing is what it seems and all of her slayer's skills will be put to the test if she's to survive the treacherous hours between dusk and dawn.

When high school math teacher Alice Faye Dahl is invited to a poker party at a friend's home, she doesn't know a royal flush from a toilet flush. Four months and dozens of tournament "wins" later, she's one of the "Final Nine"--the championship table at the International Poker Tour in Surfer's Paradise, Australia--and way out of her depth. When a fluke shark attack throws Alice and the charming, wealthy journalist (and former Final Nine champion) Lapin "Rabbit" Montgomery together, it seems to challenge the saying "lucky at cards, unlucky at love." Alice is elated when Rabbit offers to help her win the multi-million dollar prize, but her excitement is short-lived. After whisking her away on a luxurious trip to Sydney, Alice realizes that almost nothing Rabbit says or does has anything to do with playing cards, and everything to do with playing people--including her. In this hilarious, modern-day twist on Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," Alice has to decide for herself if having Rabbit is worth the gamble.

"You are here. Good. You have work to do," said the Cheshire Cat. Thus begin the adventures of ten year-old DJ and Isabelle, his twelve year-old sister, in The Storyworlds. Having unwittingly released a dangerous creature known as an imp, the kids chase after it into "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" to prevent it from erasing the book from existence. As they stay one step ahead of Alice on her journey through Wonderland, Isabelle and DJ must fix the damage the imp is doing and ultimately capture it to ensure that the story unfolds as Lewis Carroll wrote it. Along the way, they encounter wonderful characters from a classic story, fill some holes in the original tale (Why is there a giant puppy in chapter four of "Alice?"), and, of course, have some fun.

In Wonderland the strange and magical is everyday, but when a woman who can't remember her own name meets a shape-shifting cat, anything can happen. Mary Ann doesn't remember her life before she wandered into the Woods of Forgetfulness. She doesn't remember who she was, where she came from, or even her real name—and she's given up on anyone coming to look for her. Now, she works for the White Rabbit, and if she's not deliriously happy at least her life is content.  Until, that is, she comes across a Cheshire Cat, a rare shape-shifter, who may be about to turn her life upside down.  In Wonderland, things are rarely what they seem.

Before there was an Alice, there was a Queen of Hearts. And before there was a Queen of Hearts, there was a girl who lost all heart. This is her story. Katy has spent the first twelve years of her life wishing time away. Until she finds herself sucked in a world completely out of time, a literal wonderland bursting with wild magic, beauty and technicolor dreams come to life. But this land also surges with an undercurrent of poisonous spells, dark forests, and deep evil. A place one could quite literally lose her head. It's a world at once familiar yet radically distinct. Wonderland before Alice first arrived. A place where the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter roam alongside creatures such as a snake named Waith and a stuttering lizard known as Lutwidge. Katy never asked to be there - or for the life-or-death adventure she finds herself in. Yet in a kingdom where almost anything can happen, Katy must somehow awaken the one thing that's impossible for her to live with or without...her heart.

“Never underestimate the power of a good story.”  Good advice…especially when a story can kill you. For most people, the story of their lives is just that: the accumulation of time, encounters, and actions into a cohesive whole. But for an unfortunate few, that day-to-day existence is affected—perhaps infected is a better word—by memetic incursion: where fairy tale narratives become reality, often with disastrous results. That's where the ATI Management Bureau steps in, an organization tasked with protecting the world from fairy tales, even while most of their agents are struggling to keep their own fantastic archetypes from taking over their lives. When you're dealing with storybook narratives in the real world, it doesn't matter if you're Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, or the Wicked Queen: no one gets a happily ever after. Indexing is New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire’s new urban fantasy where everything you thought you knew about fairy tales gets turned on its head.
