"Inspired by the childhood classic Alice in Wonderland"

I gotta admit: This book had me glued.
Too bad it was in a negative way.

- Who are you?
- Your doom.

Sure, there were some redeeming scenes in here that'd make me give it another star, however, this has got to be the most disappointing; fucked up "romance" slash "zombie" novel I've ever read in 2013 that will not make me do so. I don't know if I can write a review for this because my brain is a mess from reading this mess.

I didn't mind

My Re-write:

Ok here is it my review of this remarkable second book in the White Rabbit Chronicles. Showalter has once again written a captivating zombie story with so much more in it and made a second book just as remarkable as the first.

Thanks to Gena Showalter and Harlequin for sending this book my way to read and review! I was so excited when they sent me this one because I was still talking about the first one after reading it so ma

This one was a little more...EVERYTHING compared to the first one. I loved it! There were parts where I wanted to kill a certain book boyfriend, but overall, I loved it, and still love him.

This second book was definitely more intense, it seemed. It was also more insane.

I really have no idea what to say about this book. Not really. Sad. Maybe later I can come up with a better review.

I do want to say thanks to Lauren and Sian! I've done buddy reads with both of them, but we've never read a book,

I love how the broken mirror looks like a pair of wings!!
Or, am I the only one who thinks that?
You know, I'm the obsessed one with wings after all.

Ooooh, & the all too white face looks like them!!

I devoured this book in a day. As dorky as it sounds, I was pretty much a zombie while reading this book because I only got up to eat and I might have snapped and tried to bite whoever tried taking my iPad away from me. Yeah, that bad.

Rereads are so bloody interesting because I have so many different thoughts and opinions about this book than I did when I first read it. (I mean, it was like 5 years ago so I’d hope to have changed at least a little bit since then, but still.) I spent a lot of this book getting frustrated at characters and their actions, but on the whole it was a good frustration. Like an ‘ughhhh you guys are awful, I love you’ type of frustration rather than an ‘ughhh I want you all to die and then

I love all things Alice in Wonderland so when I found this series I was excited. Gena is an amazing writer and her books are great and keep you hooked that you don't want to put down But the romance had to be the most annoying thing about this book. While we had McKenzie hating Ali and vying for Cole's attentions in the first book, we now have a repeat of that whole scenario, just with a different girl. And Cole dumps Ali for what I felt was the most ridiculous reason ever. It was angsty, which ...more

Same book as the first one, only with even more teen drama and less substance to the zombie mythology, and with new names and faces for basically the same cardboard villains. The fight scenes were downright boring and always the same - fight, ooh it's working, get bitten, uh oh, someone saves the day. I guess the author couldn't be arsed, since there was making out to write and teenage romance to focus on.

The whole zombie/spirit form thing was almost chucked, with bushes rustling and twigs snapp

Another 5 stars for Gena Showalter !! wow so far this woman can do no wrong by me. I have fallen head over heels for this series. I must say it really has nothing to do with Alice in Wonderland in the aspect you might think ,but it relates to it in certain ways.

We have Miss Alice Bell here fighting herself so to say because of a mishap that happens to her with a zombie biting into her.

Okay. I'm going to start off by commenting on how GORGEOUS the cover of this book is. The mirror, the wings, the colors. UGH. I'm a sucker for a pretty cover, and this is definitely a pretty cover. I'm sort of a little in love with it. BUT, that aside, here's my review:

I truly picked this series up on a whim, not really expecting too much but intrigued by the synopsis and the fact that it sounded somewhat original and then...I promptly forgot about it. This happens a lot. I buy books like crazy and then they stack up and get lost in the pile.

After reading another of her series (through ARCs) I fell in love with Showalters writing and knew I needed to read more from her, hence me finally picking this series up.

I can't believe it took me so long to do it. I ha
Sometimes it can be a nerve racking experience to pick up the second book in a series, I'm sure we've all been in the situation where the sequel to a much loved first book ends up being a terrible disappointment and leaves us wondering whether it's even worth continuing with the rest of the series. Well I know I have anyway so I was slightly worried when it came to Alice Through the Looking Glass, what if it didn't live up to my expectations? Thankfully my fears were unfounded and within a coupl ...more
2.4 stars- barely based on lowlife characters and TSTL actions
Zombies hunters vs zombies and evil scientist.
This book sucked like a black hole
I loved the idea, the spirt hunting, the different abilities awakening and the possibilities. The action was there, I was on the edge of my seat more than once. But why bring in abuse, and ridiculous actions into the story. I was rolling my eyes at the jealousy, the he-slut moves and the stupid thinking of this girl.

This started out better than I expected - it's not just a tired re-tread of book 1. I've got some issues with the Cole/Ali thing, because Cole is being an asshole, Ali is upset, his friends say "it's not what you think" but what else IS she to think since Cole can't be bothered to tell her anything? I can stomach it though, because Ali is not really putting UP with Cole - at one point he says "you don't understand," and she hits him and says "of course I don't understand, you moron! you won't ex ...more
The second book in the Alice in Zombieland series. I enjoyed this one, but I liked the first better. Honestly, there is so many cute couples in this series I love it. I think that it would be awesome to see their POV, too.
I would just love to see what goes on in Bronx's head.

I understand that this series isn't tied to Alice in Wonderland. It was made abundantly clear in book one. I wish that it was clear so that the author would stop making these ties to Alice in Wonderland because in all reali

I liked the first book in this series, but I had mixed feelings on it. I had issues with the visions and the overall fact that this it was not an Alice in Wonderland retelling like I was expecting. I actually enjoyed this book more than the first book!

This book is much darker than the previous book and I oddly liked it. Ali's now part of the zombie hunting team, though they are reluctant to have her fight, and she's now dati

Short and Sweet:
I SO enjoyed Through the Zombie Glass! It was creepy, dark and wonderfully suspenseful. This book builds upon it's first in the most entertaining & twisty ways. Fans of Alice in Zombieland will be equally delighted and horrified by this sequel!

To Elaborate....
Alice has been through quite a bit as of late, but nothing quite compares to the dark, compulsive whispers in her mind and the terrifying images of herself she sees in the mirror. What is she becoming? Has she lost her mind?

Cole, you're just so sweet. But you're the epitome of bad boy. You're like a sweet bad boy which is totally contradictory.

The only thing keeping this book from getting 5 stars was all the romance drama in this book. That was the only thing that put me off at times.
Otherwise I was all about the different storyline in this one. Z.A. was pretty wild to think about. I loved that there were new characters, Gavin was definitely my favorite!
I don’t want to go into too much but I’m looking forward to reading the next one!

Within minutes all the little details from the first book started coming back to me and I suddenly got excited all over again.

well ... this was definitely more intense than the first book. I liked Alice a little more, she was headstrong and snarky. the fights scenes were pretty badass and the whole Zombie Ali was strange but I back it. I do kind of hate Ali and Cole's relationship, they're SO lame together and Cole breaking up with Ali for stupid reasons and then doing the one thing he said he wasn't gonna do, and her doing the same thing ... ok, whatever.

“You know,” Cole said. “My mom once told me a boy would know he’d become a man when he stopped putting himself first. She said a girl would come along and I wouldn’t be able to get her out of my mind. She said this girl would frustrate me, confuse me, and challenge me, but she would also make me do whatever was necessary to be a better man–the man she needed. With you, I want to be better.
