Waiting on Wednesday: Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
Here's my pick:
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Release Date ~ 9/25/12
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….
   Recently I've been feeling the zombie craze! And a zombie novel + Alice in Wonderland sounds too good to be true! The cover of this book is awesome too! Though I know every cover seems to just have a girl in a dress on it, I love how this cover takes the colorful dress from Alice in Wonderland and adds a macabre, darker touch to it. And at the bottom there, "Off with their heads."? Love it! Thankfully this book comes out in a week so we won't have to wait that long!
What book can't you wait to read? Link me to your post in the comments!

  4. I should get to read this a week or so after it comes out, I'm already on hold for it. I agree with you on the dress trend -- it fits here, and reminds me of Alice's dress in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.
