Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine. WoW gives us the opportunity to highlight an upcoming release that we are really excited about.
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Expected Release Date: September 25, 2012
Summary from GoodReads:
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 just heard about this book last week!! I don’t know how I could have missed it. So, I’m generally not a huge Alice in Wonderland fan. I don’t hate it, but I have never loved it, either. And I’m not sure how I feel about zombies. But this book looks pretty awesome. I’ve never read anything by Gena Showalter, but I will definitely be giving this one a try. Plus, don’t you just love the cover!?
