Waiting on Wednesday: Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
and specifically spotlights upcoming
novels we can’t wait to read.

Our WoW for this week is…

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.
Expected Release Date: September 25, 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

    I loooove this cover, it's so beautiful! And it sounds like a fantastic book, I love the zombie twist on Alice in Wonderland – it's already such a fun, bizarre story on its own I'm eager to see how this one is done.

    Great pick!

    This is the fifth time I've seen this book today. Must be really popular. Anyway, it looks pretty good. I'm not big on zombies but if it isn't overly scary I'll be okay :p. Great pick this week! :)

    This cover is gorgeous and the colours remind me of Hereafter's colourscheme: the black, green and blue blending together.

    Check out my WOW?

    Great pick! I love this! I didn't know about it but I will definitely be adding this to my list. The paranormal twists on classics are so much fun. And I'm actually reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter right now.
