Me on Waiting on Wednesday (82)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Alice in Zombieland
Author: Gena Showalter
Release Date: September 25, 2012
Publisher: HarlequinTeen

From Goodreads:

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 rather enjoyed the books that HarlequinTeen has been publishing in the past couple of years (like The Goddess Test, On a Dark Wing, Dark Kiss, and Inside Out), and this sounds like it'll be just as interesting. All the zombie books I've read so far have had their tweaks and differences, so I'm looking forward to reading this one to see how the author will put her own spin on zombies.

  5. I love fairytale retellings and this sounds amazing. I can't wait to read it.
