Waiting on Wednesday 4-11-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.

This week the book I picked is Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter. Why? Because I love Alice in wonderland and I love Zombies!!

Overview (taken from Goodreads)

She won’t rest 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.


I am totally pining for this book!! It sounds friggin awesome and the cover is just amazing!! Zombies, Bad boys, secrets...Oh, yes please!! I so need this book, like yesterday!! I will be slowly dying each day waiting for this one to come out. What book are you desperately waiting for? Leave me a link and I will check it out.

  5. "Off with their heads." - Hah! That's hilarious. I'm not big into zombies but like you said - secrets, bad boys, etc. sounds good and right up my alley. I might have to checkout this book when it gets closer to the fall.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. This book has definitely been on my TBR list! I love Gena's writing. I admit I haven't read a zombie book before (no judging! Lol!), but because it's written by her and the synopsis sounds really good too, I'm really looking forward to reading it! Great pick! :-)

    2. I love her adult series "Lords of the Underworld" and I've read 2 of the books from her YA "Intertwined" series. I have the 3rd on my bookshelf that I still need to get too! I've also "collected" her adult series "Alien Huntress" that one day I will get to. haha!

  8. YES! I mean, you pretty much said it yourself: Alice in Wonderland and zombies. Automatic awesome. And yeah, the cover is fantastic--it may the typical "girl in a dress" cover, but it's still stunning.
