Waiting on Wednesday: Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I am not the biggest fan of zombies. I've tried several different versions of zombies (Generation Dead, Feed, etc) and while I seem to favor the "survivalist scenario" version of them, this book was different. It wasn't quite survivalist, but Ali definitely kicks some major butt! (My review is coming tomorrow, so be sure to check back.) Meanwhile, feast your peepers on the blurb for the highly anticipated September 25 release of Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1) by Gena Showalter.

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.

From Goodreads

I love how this book seems to combine elements of the traditional "Alice" story with zombies & romance. I promise you, this book is every bit as alluring as it promises!

What awesomeness are you waiting on this week?
