My POV: Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Hardcover, 404 pages
Expected publication: September 25th 2012 by 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….

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.--Goodreads

My POV

Holy HOTNESS!! Gena sure knows how to write em’. I love me some hotties with tattoos, swords and bulging biceps but that’s not all this book has to offer. Along with the bad-boy hotties we get heroic kick-ass females, zombies and a whole lot of action! I Loved it! I was sooooo excited to get an ARC of this book as part of AiZ Street Team and I tore through it in no time.

From the first time I seen AiZ at BEA not only did the cover fascinate and draw me in but the premise intrigued me. I was not disappointed! I haven’t read a zombie series like this before. The way Gena created her zombie world is unique and takes the “Zombie Apocalypse” to a whole new level. 

Let’s talk about characters for a bit because let’s face it without great characters there wouldn’t be great stories. Alice “Ali” Bell is a sixteen year old girl in high school who has been very shelter due to her father’s overwhelming paranoia that there are evil things that come out at night. In the beginning of the book tragedy strike her and her family which opens up her otherworldly sense. This allows her to see that not only is her father not a mental case but that his paranoia has validity to it. Now that she had been “awakened” per se she is more determine to destroy these living dead beings that ruined and changed her life forever. The thing is she doesn’t know how. This is where Cole Holland comes in. He’s the ultimate kick-ass hottie with violet eyes..aaww dreamy. Except he want nothing to do with her and tries to keep his distance. Which (thank the gawd!) doesn’t last too long. Needless to say these two have great chemistry but are reluctant to let their attraction get in the way of their ultimate goal which is to obliterate all zombies from the face of the earth. These two are the main characters and take center stage of the story but Kat and Frosty steal the spot light a lot and I love absolutely them! Check out most of the characters profiles click here>> The White Rabbit Chronicles<<

This book was like a bull ride- crazy, wild, exhilarating, rough, tough, and too short (404 pages of awesomeness too short!) I wanted so much more. I don’t know how I’m going to wait a year for Through the Zombie Glass. It’s going to be torture! Pick this book up guys is was a fantastical read!!

Quote
"You'll be fine." she said, merciless. "They'll love you. And if they don't, well let me know who I need to punish. That's a specialty of mine, just FYI. So is tough love." She patted me on my butt. "Now go get 'em, baby cub."

"How about this? Step out of our body or I'll put you over my knee and spank you in front of everyone."
I huffed and puffed and gasped out, "I'd like to see you try!"
He reached for me. With a squeal I slapped his had and darted out of the way.
***
"I know you 've kissed Cole. Actually, everyone at the club knows you 've kissed Cole, and I'm sure we're all suprised your lungs remained inflated and you survivied. So was he any good?
A dreamy sigh left me--and I found three little words. "He was amazing."
