Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

 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

Where do I start?

Lets see, I guess I could start by taking the time to mention that I haven't read a book by Gena Showalter that I have not enjoyed. She really is a talented writer I am proud to have on my bookshelves to read over and over again.

Alice and Zombieland was a slow starter for the first chapter for me, I thought that it being a new genre for me when it came to Gena Showalter that I wasn't going to be a fan, you know since they have those hit and misses every now and then.

Thankfully that was not the case, I quickly became invested in this book and it is now resting on the favorites shelf.

Don't be fooled, this book is not a zombie take on Alice in Wonderland, there are similarities but I loved that that was it when it came to the story. There is a white rabbit, and parts where Alice's world gets turned upside down but that is about it.

This book is a must read for zombie fans and YA genre lovers everywhere.

5 out of 5 Raven's!
