Through the Zombie Glass (White Rabbit Chronicles #2)

Zombies stalk the night. Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls. Sadly, they've got mine...

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

She's never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her...from everyone. Now, with her best friend Kat at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole's secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking...and if she fails at a single task, they're all doomed.


The Cover: 

Ah, the cover! Reminiscent towards the era of the generic YA paranormal romance story. Girl dolled up in a fancy dress. Pretty meh. Honestly, though, I can't think of any other cover that would fit the story. This is just how I feel about what I read, and actually for once the generic cover hold up the foundations of a pretty typical YA tropes filled story.

The Content:

The reason that I couldn't give this a flat one star is because I still really liked Ali as a character and I understood her traits and some of her thoughts. In saying that I've already opened up a can of stinky tuna as there were some things that happened in her mind set that was a cause of vile irritation throughout ATTZG.

I remember not so fondly of reading Crescendo, the second book in Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series. I remember distinctly DNFing the thing after a hundred pages. I'm not to explain why due to spoilers and I would like to try and avoid that. However, if you didn't like that book for whatever reason or you are avoiding reading it I would try and stay clear of this one. It felt a little juvenile at times in terms of arrangement of plot structure and character choices.

I also found that this book got rather repetitive as the story continued on. I think I even skipped pages because I knew exactly what the series of events were going to be and their outcome. And I never do this-- ever! If I wanted to improve it, it would be the simple matter of removing 200 hundred or so pages.

I don't think I am going to finish this series, unfortunately. I have little to no interest and it would be great to just unhaul them from my bookshelf and be free of this burden on my tbr. And I don't even want to know what happens.
