Books inspired by Alice in Wonderland are abundant in our time today, and with the numerous authors out there, we can expect wonderful tales from them.
Being an author myself, I, Melissa Rea, have written my book loosely based on Alice in Wonderland titled Nights of Alice. My Rabbithole (Nights of Alice) book takes readers on a rollercoaster ride of twists, steamy scenes, and strong emotions that’ll get them hooked. I guarantee readers will enjoy the exciting story, which I’m also excited to share.
However, let’s rewind and talk more about the books that Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland inspired. We have prepared a list you can refer to below.
1. Alice by Christina Henry
Some of these tales may strike you as being a little grim. The novel Alice by Christina Henry unquestionably paints a grim picture of Alice and what happens in Lewis Carroll’s original story. The tale starts with a woman found in a hospital who can’t remember who she is.
She can only really remember bunny ears, blood, and a tea party. The woman seizes the chance to leave when a fire bursts in the hospital.
2. Nights of Alice by Yours Truly, Melissa Rea
The story of Nights of Alice is one of the best books inspired by Alice in Wonderland. CEO Alice Hightower looks forward to the sun setting every day. She manages a medical device firm during the day that is ready to introduce a ground-breaking cardiac bypass technique.
Alice opens the closet door each night as the sun sets, discovering clothing she has never seen. Each outfit is a perfect fit. There can be flapper dresses with fringe during the Roaring Twenties or bell-bottomed dresses from the 1970s.
In the Rabbithole (Nights of Alice) book, she is only certain that once she dons them and opens the balcony door to her balcony, her attire will be ideal for the evening’s sensual experience. Nights of Alice is one of the great books that reimagines Alice in Wonderland.
3. Marissa Meyer’s Heartless
Marissa Meyer’s novel Heartless is her interpretation of the Queen of Hearts. However, Meyer is more interested in the queen’s past than in the events that transpire in Alice in Wonderland. The King of Hearts favors Catherine, but she has no interest in becoming queen.
The Queen of Hearts prefers to train as a baker and start a business with a close friend. She is not interested in relationships or marriage. Catherine shows romantic interest in people when she runs into Jest, the court jester.
Disregarding the repercussions, the two start dating covertly and are off on a journey they weren’t expecting. Go ahead and read the book to discover what happens next.
4. Curiouser and Curiouser by Melanie Karsak
Steampunk and Alice? Let’s go! Written by Melanie Karsak, Curiouser and Curiouser is a steampunk interpretation of Wonderland. It’s Alice’s job to help the Mad Hatter, who is in peril.
She has to work with the man she loves and hates to do this. Alice had planned to turn a fresh leaf, but the Hatter’s irresponsibility forced her to collaborate with the Caterpillar again. The heist should be easy since she needs only to steal a sizable diamond.
But Alice needed to prepare for how difficult her affections for her ex-lover would be.
5. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
The premise of Alice in Zombieland is certainly entertaining, with a teenage Alice battling the dead to exact revenge on her family. The interpretation of Carroll’s tale by Gena Showalter inevitably centers on Alice, who instantly lost her family to the army of the undead.
Cole Holland, a young man with secrets that could endanger the two of them, is the partner she must work with.
