Waiting On Wednesday: Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter


Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 


Description:

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.


Coming out on September 25

Why?
  1. A lovely sounding spin on the Alice in Wonderland, only with Zombies!  How could this go wrong? (please don't answer that, because we all know that it could!)
  2. Who doesn't like Gena Showalter?  I mean, she has written some great adult books, so why not try one of her YA books?  It seems so simple!
  3. Look at this GORGEOUS cover.  I mean, you can't look more innocent than that, and then to know that behind that cover are lurking zombies!  Oooh, looks/sounds wonderful!

So what are you waiting for?


Happy Reading!
