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

She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

If anyone had 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.


“Yeah, okay. You’re right. I was having dinner with Zombie Carl the other night. You know, steak, rare, and a bottle of vintage type A. He told me all his secrets, but too bad for you I promised him I wouldn’t tell. In exchange I asked him to gather his best undead buddies and stalk me through my friend’s yard. And oh, yeah, it was totally fine if they wanted to use me as an all-night-dinner buffet, because having organs is SO last year.”  


I loved this book! It definitely was not what I was expecting it to be, it was so much better!

The book is a fun, easy read and I really enjoyed the authors take on zombies and the white rabbit. She presented zombies in a new and refreshing way, which really made them stand apart from normal book / movie zombies.



The characters are delightful. Alice Bell, the protagonist, is witty and sassy and all things spice. She is a strong lead with a sense of humour, while she makes a few stupid decisions you never feel like punching her in the throat, which is a lovely change from most female MC’s these days. Then there is Cole! Damn! He’s tattooed and buff, what more could you want?!!

Although my favourite character in the book is Kat, I love her! She is serious best friend goals.

“Of course.” She fluffed her hair. “I don’t want to brag, but I’m very high maintenance.”

“Uh, I think low maintenance is what’s

“Low maintenance is what’s forgettable. You might want to write that down, underline it, circle it and put a star by it. It’s golden.” With barely a breath, she added, “Now let’s find out if we’re compatible, shall we?”


This is a well written book that pulled me in from the start. I can not wait to read the rest of this series.

    1. Yeah, I only heard about it at the start of this year and I put off reading it until now, I’m glad I picked it up. I have actually never seen the books in any shops but I managed to borrow them from my online library.

  1. I loved this book, too! The series is awesome. But my aunt bought it for my 12 year old niece, and I had to show her the “steamy” scenes to convince her it was a little mature for her. The guy at Barnes & Noble recommended it!! I was like, argh!
    I mean, it’s a Harlequin Teen romance!! Harlequin is the company that publishes all those romance novels! I wanted to snack the B & N guy, but he probably never read it.
    I hope you continue the series! I love Kat and Cole and Frosty!!

    1. Haha yes, this series definitely is not appropriate for 12 year olds.
      You would think if you worked at a book shop you would have a basic idea of what books are suitable for different age groups. I would have smacked him lol might have knocked some sense into him.

      Great series though I will definitely be reading the rest of it.
      I’m in love with Cole and Kat lol I hope there’s more of frosty in the rest of the series.

      1. If I knew who recommended it, I would have gone back and whooped some ass
        But my aunt was so upset I am pretty sure she’s already done it. She was embarrassed Mac upset that she couldn’t give my niece the book. But she understood. My aunt also got her Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, so it wasn’t a total loss. 😉


      2. She has every right to be upset, they shouldn’t let incompetent people work in bookshops.
        Imagine how much worse it would have been if she actually gave her the book.
        At least she still had Miss Peregrine’s, it sounds and looks like such a good book.
        I bought it the other day, does it live up to the hype?
