Wishing on Wednesday [27]

Wishing and hoping, and thinking and praying...

"She won’t resist 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.

Cover reveals have been popping up all over for this one in the past week or so. And I'm so very glad that they have been since they are what clued me into this awesome upcoming title. I fell in love with the cover immediately. It's SO GORGEOUS. I know, I know. You're all sick of the dresses. Well...I'm not. Especially when they are this gorgeous! I would totally love to rock that dress. And the tagline on the cover? "Off with their heads"? An Alice in Wonderland reference, as if the dress and stylization of the border weren't enough, and amazing zombie fighting advice all in one? Come on! And those last lines in italics in the summary of the book. Oh. Em. Gee. This is going to be one awesome novel. I just know it! I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy. Squee!


  1. Great choice! :) I'm totally excited for this one as well :D

  2. I've seen this one around the blogs & it's definitely on my TBR. I love the cover too. Gorgeous!

  3. Hopefully all three of us will get to read it soon! :D
