Review: Alice In Zombieland

Genre: Young Adult-Paranormal
Author: Gena Showalter

"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."

It's no surprise that I adored this book. I mean c'mon. It's Gena Freaking Showalter, queen of writing! I absolutely loved this story. Not only is the story building unique and exciting, it's gives the reader a whole new spin on Alice In Wonderland. 

What's really cool about this book is the new plot. I like that all elements that were in the classic are intrinsically intertwined with every chapter. The bold plots grabs the reader from the start with Ali's life that is all of sudden turned upside down. It's paced well so it gives the reader time to invest in each character unraveling them slowly before the reader eyes.

The love interest is definitely unique. The carefully written bonds that form with the love interest leave me wanting more. I really like the paranormal twist to the story. It amazed me of how well it flowed and made sense in the story. Once in the story you see everything unfold and you can't help but feel amazed of what your reading.

The result is an gripping smart story that leads deeper into the rabbit hole. Alice In Zombieland has enough brilliance that it spills over every single page. A very fulfilling, amazing story, Alice In Zombieland rocks my socks off!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. Eeek! This is another book I got from BEA and haven't read yet. There are too many of those!

  2. Glad you enjoyed this so much! Thanks for the review :)

  3. YEAH!!!! So glad you loved this one too Savy! I just adored it. I'm a total Gena fangirl though, so I pretty much fall madly in love with anything she writes. And the romance in this one? SO GOOD! I can't wait for book 2!

  4. I want this one so bad and you just made me want it even more. I also love Gena's writing although I'm woefully behind reading her series of books! Yep, this one is SO on my wishlist!

  5. Ooh I really enjoyed this book too! Not much of an Alice book but it was really creative and kind of a cool way to imagine zombies!
