Waiting On Wednesday (44)


This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of!


Alice In Zombieland
By Gena Showalter
Release Date: September 25, 2012
Summary: 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've read a couple of Gena Showalter's adult novels and really enjoyed them, so I was shocked to see she was writing a YA novel. Then, I saw the cover and knew that this one had to be on my TBR list stat. Then I read the title and realized it's about zombies. How cool is that??? I've only read a couple of zombie related books and really enjoyed them (the Generation Dead series by Daniel Waters), so I'm really excited to try this one out. Hopefully it turns out as good as it looks!
