Book Watch: Alice in Zombieland


Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter will be released in the U.S. on September 25, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Published by Harlequin TEEN, the print edition is 416 pages.

Alice in Zombieland is the first book in author Gena Showalter’s White Rabbit Chronicles. The second book in the series, Through the Zombie Glass, is slated for release in 2013.


There are so many amazing books releasing the week of September 25th but there’s been one book I’ve been waiting the longest for and that’s ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND by Gena Showalter. I have been dying to get my hands on this book. So there was absolutely no way I wouldn’t be putting it in the spotlight this week.

I’ve been wary of books that rewrite history to include the undead, but Alice in Wonderland was already fiction. And while I’ve loved Alice’s story each of the many times I’ve read it, I just know I’m going to love Ali’s story, too.

I want to know exactly what happened that made things change for her in an instant. I want to know how her father’s “paranoia and delusion” somehow became a reality. And I want to know just what things she could have done differently so that she wouldn’t be forced to avenge her family.

But I also am dying to meet Cole Holland. I’m just so curious what his secrets are and why they are so dangerous. More dangerous, even, than the zombies. And I can’t wait to see just how kick-a** Ali Bell is in this series.

I’ve been a fan of author Gena Showalter’s for quite awhile now. I love the fact that she decided to take on a classic and give it her own twist. I can’t wait to see just how she tackles both this book and the next and whether she’ll decide to take the series even further.

I love the gorgeous cover. And I absolutely love the tagline, “Off with their heads.” While September 25th is only a few weeks away, the wait has been absolutely killing me and it can’t come soon enough.

Classic fiction with a twist, innocence lost and zombies. And all of this awesome penned by Gena Showalter. Even with all the seriously amazing books releasing the week of the 25th, I say ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND is the Book to Watch this week.

(Oh, and be sure to check out the excerpt on Amazon if you want to get a short peek before release date.)

About the Book

Goodreads description:

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.
