Waiting on Wednesday (31)

Posted by

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. 
My pick this week:

Alice in Zombieland

Gena Showalter
Release date: September 25th, 2012
by Harlequin Teen

She won’t resist 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.

Do I even need to explain why I’m dying to read this? I mean, zombies! I know, RIGHT?

What’s are you waiting on?

    I am loving all the hype around Alice in Zombieland! I’m not sure if its because I love the movie Alice in Wonderland (starring Johnny Depp) or the fact that is about zombies. Maybe its both! xD

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Definitely sounds intriguing. I know it might sound weird, but I don’t actually like the name of the book. Only you have it here, I doubt I would have ever read the blurb with a name like that. But, I have and it sounds good, so I will give it a try. Thanks for sharing Giselle.

But then I went with another sort of zombie and thought I’d save this one b/c it was out later. UGGGHHHHH!!! I seriously can NOT wait for this one!!!! I hope you get to read it early ;)!!!!

    Ahhh, yes. *-* Zombies + Alice in Wonderland = mind-blowing amounts of awesome. Plus, that cover! I know it’s the stereotypical “girl in a dress,” but it’s still gorgeous.

    Love at first sight.
    When I first saw this last week, I knew that I won’t stop thinking about it until I finally get to read it. Aaaargh, just seeing this and knowing I still need to wait is torture! Awesome pick though, hun! :)

    I. LOVE. THIS. COVER. I said so on one of my friend’s blog posts featuring THIS COVER. It’s just gorgeous and beautiful and I wonder what the heck kind of nods to the original Alice in Wonderland are going to be involved in this book. I NEED TO KNOW. And I want this book SO HARD.

    Have an amazing reading week!

    I adore the Alice in Zombieland cover. It helps that I love 3 things about the book already:
    1. Alice in Wonderland is great!
    2. Gena Showalter is one of my favourite PNR authors!
    3. Zombies are just awesome!

    I love the pooffy dress and the little skulls in the border. Thumbs up to the artist who designed it and his/her attention to detail.

    “Off with their heads.” — I love it!

    I dont know why this one looks so good to me. I hated alice and wonderland, it was boring as shit. So you would think anything that references that, even in just a title I would stay away. Nope.

    maybe it’s the thought that dumb annoying alice will get eaten by zombie at last! yes! I hope it’s a blood bath. Not a good dress choice Alice. with all those flesh hungry ghouls.. I certianly woudln’t have worn white.

    I’m almost sad to leave you this comment. you currently have 69, and I’m going to ruin that. Please forgive me. lol

  9. Christina/BookTasty

    I love the cover for this one! Its very pretty and she looks like Taylor Swift! :) I will say though, that I’m not really into zombies. So, reading this one would be a stretch for me – but I do like to leave my comfort zone once in a while :)
