There is never a better (or more completely overwhelming) time to return to the blogosphere than during the A to Z Challenge. Nothing like just strolling right back in and strapping on the big girl panties, right?
This year, I struggled a bit. In fact, I down right waffled. I didn't know whether or not I was going to actually wind up doing the challenge for sure until this evening. But...here we are. Game on.
For those new or needing a refresher, the A to Z Challenge happens every April. This is the 7th year and my 3rd year participating. During the A to Z Challenge, bloggers from around the world come together to blog for each day in April (except for Sundays) from the letter A on April 1st until the letter Z on the last non-Sunday day of the month. It's an amazing event that this year looks to be 1800+ strong.
In both 2014 and 2015, I did my A to Z based on the project theme. With a change in my schedule (read: crazy hectic), I haven't really done much in the project department lately. So this year's theme instead is...
Today is day one...so...you guessed it, today is letter...
Synopsis in a Sentence:
Young Alice falls down a hole to a world full of crazy creatures and adventure where she learns to trust herself, appreciate her imagination, and to not always take things exactly as they may seem.
Though I had been exposed to Alice in many different means over the years, my first complete reading of the novel and its companion, Through the Looking Glass was just last year.
Number of Times Read:
Though it currently numbers only one. I already now own two hard copies of the original novel along with a couple of sequels. My collection will only continue to grow, as will the number of times I enjoy the story.
Why it Makes the List:
Very few things in the literary world thrill me as much as Alice. There are so many ways to identify with this novel. And no matter how many times I hear, see, or read the story, there will always be new ways to see it and new things to learn.
Just like Alice, for me there will never be a completed understanding of Wonderland.
