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.… (meer)

Thoughts:
1/ when will YA books be done with loving bad boy must = abusive relationship?
2/ strong female character does not equal bitch. I love a good bitch actually. This girl was just mean and petty
3/ why make your characters teenagers and then absolutely ignore this fact
4/ the usual cliche of naive/absent parents - it is beyond old now
5/ description of paranormal element snore worthy
6/ black and white morals
7/ love triangle attempt and not even an entertaining one
8/ to those exclaiming "I never thought I would like a zombie book!!1!" - congrats, you still don't. The zombies are basically possessing evil spirits, people can't even see them
9/ bad boy Cole is boring and also not misunderstood, but rather a misanthropic romcom boy
10/ where were the Alice in Wonderland aspects? A cloud shaped like a rabbit and her name is Alice - that is literally it. So disappointed and I actually feel lied to.
11/ thinks she's plain but everyone else can see she's so special and pretty
So, in retrospect: boring, no actual zombies, no quirky fun and a mean, pseudo-plain girl in angst, destined, abusive relationship love with a boring "bad boy".
Want spirits, terror and real bad boys who are secretly good boys? Try Paper Valentine. ( )

Review first published on my blog: Pieces of Whimsy

I'd heard good things about this book so I went in with fairly high expectations, thankfully it did not disappoint.

The main character was Ali Bell and she was one very strong chick. After all the things she'd been through and all the crazy thoughts and emotions zipping through her head, she still knew how to kick-butt! She was stubborn and tough and had a sharp tongue, all the qualities I like in a fine, young woman. Ali knew how to think for herself and she was both smart and resilient. All this made me like her quite a lot and I really enjoyed her as a character.

Cole, is the bad boy of this piece and he is mighty fine. The scenes between him and Ali are very hot and I could almost feel steam rising form the pages. Cole was a bad boy, not hesitating to use his fists to solve an argument, but he was also really sweet. At least when it came to Ali. The little gentlemanly things he did seemed contrast to his tough, mean exterior, but they suited him well.

Another of my favourite characters was Kat. Like Ali, I wasn't 100% sure of her at first but the more time I spent with her the cooler she became. She was really fun and loyal and by the end of the book she was super-awesome in my eyes.

Now onto the zombies... I really, really liked them! I've only read a couple of zombie books but I wasn't very fond of them. All that munching on people seems a bit too much. Reading about creatures who like to eat your flesh doesn't sound particularly appealing and I think Gena has done a fantastic job in re-creating the zombie. They're still unattractive, smell bad and have an insatiable hunger, but instead of just being mindless monsters, these creatures are evil. They're not just hideous blobs of rotting flesh, these zombies are made of evil and you can really feel passionate about hating them.

Alice in Zombieland is a great book. All the aspects of this story mesh together really well and it had a nice balance of light and dark elements. The romance is hot, the characters are lovable (or hatable in some cases) and the zombies are beautifully crafted evil.
4.5/5 ( )

(This review can also be found on my blog at The (Mis)Adventures of a Twenty-Something Year Old Girl).

I've been dying to read this book since I first heard about it months ago. I love zombies because, well, zombies are just so darn cool! However, I think I built myself up a bit too much and bought in to the hype a bit too much. I didn't think the book was bad, but I didn't think it was that great either.

Alice, or Ali for short, thinks her father is crazy. He has so many rules when it comes to his daughters, especially things that involve go out during the night. He's worried about the monsters, but Alice just thinks he's going insane until one night, her whole family is killed in a car crash. It is then that she sees her first monster. Maybe her dad wasn't crazy after all. Alice will have to enlist the help of the school's bad crowd if she wants answers, and that means getting close to Cole Holland, the resident bad boy. Will Alice have her heart broken? Will she even be able to survive long enough to have her heart broken?

Okay, I absolutely, positively love, love, love the title of this book: Alice in Zombieland. It just has a certain ring to it. I'd say the title definitely describes the story. If I were to sum up this book in three words, Alice in Zombieland would be exactly what I'd say.

I do think the cover is pretty, but I feel that it's lacking. I do love the little details there are to see when you look closer at the cover, but as I said, something is missing from the cover. I think it would've been cool, maybe, to have a few zombies on the cover as well.

The world building is fantastic! Gena Showalter makes it feel as if a zombie apocalypse is actually happening or really could happen. It's so easy to get lost in Alice's world and forget that you're actually just reading a story. The author makes the world of zombies come to life, and it does get a bit scary.

The pacing is what really bothered me. I felt as if it was a bit all over the place. At the very beginning, I felt I was losing the will to live as the pacing was so slow. Then it got a bit better, then it'd get slow, then it'd get better again. My interest in this book was all over the place. I never knew what to expect in the next chapter. Was it going to be super slow or fast paced?

The dialogue was believable for the teenagers. They spoke exactly how I'd imagine teens of today to speak. However, Alice has a seven year old sister who spoke like she was at least thirteen years old. Her vocabulary, and the way she spoke were definitely not normal for a seven year old. With that said, I did enjoy the dialogue immensely especially when it came to interactions between Kat and Alice. I even loved the sarcastic interactions between Cole and Alice. There wasn't any swearing in this book which I admired.

I thought the characters were fantastic and very believable. I loved how Alice was willing to do whatever it took to avenge her family and how she wasn't willing to take anything from anybody. Cole is your typical bad boy: moody, snarly, sarcastic, etc. There is something likable about Cole, and as the story progresses, we find out a little bit about why Cole is the way he is. My favourite character had to be Kat though. I loved her witty and sarcastic sense of humour. In fact, I wish I could be like Kat. She definitely had me laughing quite a bit. The only non-believable character was Alice's little sister Emma. As stated in the previous paragraph, she didn't speak like a normal seven year old, nor did she act like an everyday seven year old. Because of that, I had a hard time relating to her as a character.

One thing I really loved about this book was the chapter names. I loved how they were zombie related but still had the Alice in Wonderland feel about them. Unfortunately, this was not enough to warrant a higher rating for this book. Perhaps it's just me though as this book does have quite high reviews, but I just couldn't enjoy it that much. I might carry on with the series in the hopes it gets better, but I'm not dying to read the next book in the series.

I'd recommend this book to those aged 14 if I really had to recommend it. However, I'd say don't waste your money. Rent it from a library or borrow it if you really want to read it.

Alice in Zombieland (The White Rabbit Chronicles #1) by Gena Showalter gets a 3.25 out of 5 from me. ( )

picked up this book at a library sale because it sounded interesting and it was. hadn't realized it was a series but i wil be going out to get the next one. was a good take on the alice in wonder land story. it kept you interested and easy to read plus trying to relate to the original story was fun also.

Although there was not enough Alice-isms for me, this was a great read! It didn't even need the Alice references that were there. Zombies living in this world where we cannot see them, a distressed tragic young lady, and the guy....there is always a guy. He is the one to lead her through this new world she always assumed was a figment of her father's mad mind.
I would recommend this to any person who finds zombies even slightly interesting. ( )
