Wishlist Wednesday


Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop, hosted by Pen to Paper, where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

From Goodreads: 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.

Why I Want to Read it: When I first seen this book, I went nuts! Everything about it screams awesome, from it's cover to it's title, to it's description. Strangely enough, I've never actually been an Alice in Wonderland fan though (I know, I'm in the minority). But this book just seems way too cool to pass up! Not to mention it's rave reviews (it's a 4 star on Goodreads).

  2. I'm currently reading this one right now! It's good, but it really isn't Alice in Wonderland IN zombieland. There's really lots of kick ass characters and my favorite character so far is Alice's friend. Fogot her name. I suck at names. Lol. Hope you get it soon. =)

  9. Actually, I don't think it's that unusual not to be an Alice fan - I just recently read a review of someone who didn't like the original Alice in Wonderland story - and I personally haven't read it yet although I plan to...and Alice in Zombieland, too!

  10. Zombies creep me out. Unless it's like Warm Bodies. Then I don't mind. But, I can't read about them haha. I know it's weird. I hope you get it soon!

  11. For some reason, this book hasn't interested me, despite having everything you've mentioned. When you do read it, let me know how it is. :) Maybe you can change my mind!
