{Review} Alice in Zombieland - Gena Showalter

Alice in Zombieland 
By Gena Showalter
Series: The White Rabbit Chronicles #1
Release Date: 09/25/2012
Publisher: HarlequinTeen

Amazon / B&N / TBD / Chapters
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….

Okay umm.. so sorry to dash all you people's hopes (those who haven't read it), but THIS IS NOT AN ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND RE-TELLING. There, I said it. I don't see how this is related to Alice at all except the main character's name is Alice and she sees a white bunny in the sky.

This is about zombies so I read it anyways. I must say this is quite an engaging story. It's about Ali Bell, whose parents died and now she must survive on her own. Most people can't see zombies.. which are pure evil that is from the spirit world. 

On the first day of school, she meets Cole Holland and has a vision of them in a hot make out scene. Now, that's kind of weird. Sorta like insta-love don't you think? But I'm not a hater so I kept reading. But Cole has a secret too *oohs in the background*. Yes.. now it's up to Ali to discover what it is. But will she help him? Or stop him?

So I thought this was a pretty decent book. Not many things that I would point out. Through the first half of the book, I was sorta bored. It was around the time that Ali knew what Cole was that the pace picked up and there were some kick-ass scenes. Ali was close to discovering his secret many times but NOO.. she had to be scared and back down. Goodness, his secret was kind of obvious and I was annoyed. 

In the second half of the book, they got to kick some zombie butts!! Woo hoo! Love the second half so much that I read it in one sitting :3 

Overall, this is a really good book. If you can get past the first half, you won't be disappointed!!! Off with their heads!



  1. I was actually thinking about buying this book, but now I'm having second thoughts :/ All the reviews I've read have had a pretty "meh" kind of reaction. The concept of zombies however intrigues me, at least theres that :D Great review!

  2. I absolutely agree!!! After I was done I was like " the freak did I just read???" I can't believe she made that title and it wasn't a zombie meet Wonderland kind of idea! The insta-love did throw me off. Needless to say, your right, the second half is definitely better. (strange how i also gave it a 3.5 rating....)
