Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we book lovers spotlight our most anticipated reads. Could be released in a few days, weeks, months, or even next year ~ any which way, we can't wait to get our hands on that beautiful paper.

::here's mine for the week::

Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Release Date: September 25th, 2012

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.

oOoOo ... must be pretty obvious why I can't wait to make a permanent home on my shelf for this little beauty.... Zombies! duh :) Oh, and I'm a bit curious to see how the whole "Alice in Wonderlandishness" bit ties in... and there's promise of a bad boy.. secrets, danger, vengeance... mm mm mm

Happy Reading Everyone :)

    The book sounds awesome, but unfortunately, I've heard some very bad things about it, which makes me a little wary.

    Great pick.
