Alice in Zombieland - Gena Showalter (The White Rabbit Chronicles #1)

Published Date: September 25, 2012
Genre: Young Adult/Paranormal
Synopsis: Zombies stalk the night. Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls. Sadly, they've got mine...
Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.
After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.
She's never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her...from everyone. Now, with her best friend Kat at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole's secret and learn to fight the darkness.
But the clock is ticking...and if she fails at a single task, they're all doomed.

Let's mesh Alice in Wonderland meets Zombieland with a fresh take on zombies in general. I was expecting a total sap story but I love Alice and her snarky personality. She was inside a prison... Of her own home. No going out at night. No going to the cemetery. School and back. But she had her little eight-year old sister to cherish and love. Her mother is her mother: Caring, sweet, loving. Her father is a drunk and raves on and on about the monsters that he sees.

Her birthday was the day that she would never forget. She loses everything. All because she pestered her mother about going to see Emma's recital. She blames herself and sinks back into a dark hole. Until she meets Kat. True story. 

Her life slowly starts to brighten up until she meets Cole. She melts for his 6 foot 3 muscular build and his dreamy violet eyes. She then learns from him that yes, the monsters that her father raved about and she hated him for it, were actually real even if she thought they were hallucinations. 

I even fell for Cole... And Frosty and Bronx, and so on because hell. They are all attractive. So please add them onto my book boyfriends list.

Now off with their bloody heads. 

I am going to have to rate this book a great 5 out of 5 stars because I fell in love with Gena Showalter's books. This is a must-read and I am usually not big on the paranormal until Cassandra Clare and Gena Showalter. People have to put this series on their TBR list. Or just drop everything and read it now.

Blog you in about 10 minutes considering I will be coming back for Through the Zombie Glass.
