Waiting on Wednesday (32) - Alice in Zombieland


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're pining after.

Title: Alice in Zombieland
Author: Gena Showalter
Published: 25th Sept 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Series: White Rabbit Chronicles #1

She won’t resist until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….

I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish... Yeah, I wish. - From Goodreads


My oh my, I go away for a few weeks to produce a play and the book bloggers all go and get a crush without me!! In catching up on what various bloggers have been talking about (and I follow loads of them) and over the past week this book has been everywhere. Doing a little bit of research on my own and I have jumped on to the bandwagon, I think this looks great!

They may be cropping up in a number of YA books at the moment, but I love stories revolving around zombies, they scare the living daylights out of me and it's amazing!!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    1. I know this sounds great and not what I was expecting from the title, so hopefully there will be some more surprises thrown in along the way!
