     Alice in Zombieland, yeah, I don’t know where to begin with this one. It wasn't what I was expecting, and I'm not sure if that was such a good thing. I finished this book over the weekend and it took me a few days to sort out my feelings on it. For the longest time—I couldn't decide on how I wanted to rate this book. I wrestled over the choice between 3 or 2.5 stars. Because Alice in Zombieland was by far, not the worst book I've read, but I didn't love it either. It was in this sort of weird place between average and below for me.

     What I liked about the book was the zombies, they were different, and I did enjoy the storyline surrounding them. Actually, the story wasn’t half bad. It was ok. The writing was also just ok and I don’t really have much to say on it. What I didn't like so much were the characters. Alice…*sigh*. Seriously, I get that she was hurting and grieving in her own way, but some of her choices weren’t that smart. I know that she was put into some situations that were out of her control, but I just didn't like her much. She almost seemed to be a typical YA heroine. Now Cole, he was the typical YA bad boy with a chip on his shoulder and a secret compassionate side. Did I enjoy reading about some of his actions? No.

    Alright, so I admit that I might have judged this series based off its titles. So I was expecting a little more Alice in Wonderland vibe than what I really got. It was a zombie book—I don’t really have any other way to describe it. So while I had high expectation for this book, in the end I was left feeling indifferent. So I’m going to give this a 2.5. That’s all.

"No way would I mention any of this to Nana and Pops. They'd freak--not that they'd ever show me. For me, they would smile and pretend all was well, never realizing I'd once caught them whispering in their bedroom."--Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

I'm currently reading this one at the moment, and so far its ok.  What's on your page 56 this week?

I have a plan.

We'll either destroy them for good, or they'll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice "Ali" Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She's ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers…until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It's then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters…and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies…and she isn't the girl she thought she was. She's connected to the woman responsible for killing—and turning—Cole's mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima—even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.
