Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Release Date: September 25, 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

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.

Why can't I wait?
As a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland, when I heard Alice in Zombieland mentioned and Gena Showalter's name attached to it, I knew it was a must read. Plus, the White Rabbit Chronicles? Awesome series title!


  1. Stories that involve romantic summaries when there's no need for them are beginning to frustrate me. Why can't the focus be on her badass zombie slaying?

  2. Yes, I can't wait for this one! I love Alice is Wonderland and zombies!

  3. I love Alice in Wonderland retellings, I can't wait to check this one out.
