Waiting On Wednesday: Starry Night and Alice in Zombieland

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to see what others are eagerly awaiting to read :)

I love conferences and webinars especially if they're free. I'm a big fan of free. Booklist Online offers FREE Webinars about a variety of topics including upcoming YA titles for this fall most of which can be found on Netgalley.
Below are a few of my favorites:

Seventeen-year-old Julien is a romantic—he loves spending his free time at the museum poring over the great works of the Impressionists. But one night, a peach falls out of a Cezanne, Degas ballerinas dance across the floor, and Julien is not hallucinating.

The art is reacting to a curse that trapped a beautiful girl, Clio, in a painting forever. Julien has a chance to free Clio and he can't help but fall in love with her. But love is a curse in its own right. And soon paintings begin to bleed and disappear. Together Julien and Clio must save the world's greatest art . . . at the expense of the greatest love they've ever known.

The library manager at Bloomsbury described the book:
"art, adventure, and young love a Doctor Who adventure for the art generation"

Inspired by the childhood classic Alice in Wonderland, this harrowing and romantic story features teen zombie slayer Alice Bell who has lost so much—family, friends, her home. After a strange new zombie attack, Alice fears she may be losing her mind as well. A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do wicked things. The whispers of the dead assault her ears and mirrors seem to come frighteningly to life. She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more—including her boyfriend, Cole—than she does now. But as Cole strangely withdraws and the zombies gain new strength, Ali knows one false step may doom them all.

I absolutely love weird remakes of classic fairytales. I suppose I should read the first one in the series.

  1. I've not read the first book yet and I can't remember the title... Alice in Zombieland or something. Anyway putting fairytale+zombies together, well it's a really interesting concept. I cannot wait to check it out. Anyway great pick.

    Thanks for stopping by and Happy reading =)

  2. Those are two really interesting sounding books. I've not read the first Alice yet, but Through the Zombie Glass sounds really cool. The blurb for Stary Nights hooked me, and I will definitley have to keep an eye out for it.
