Hey y'all! I'm super excited to be taking part in THE QUEEN OF ZOMBIE HEARTS blog tour! I adore Gena and this series is one of my all time favorites! It has a ton of swoony boys, zombies, and a kick ass heroine whom I love. I'm going to be sharing my favorite quotes from all 3 books, just a warning it's a long post. Most of my "quotes" turned into small passages. I wanted to not only feature Ali and Cole but also some of my other favorites too! Oh and make sure to stick around for the awesome giveaway!

I have a plan.

We'll either destroy them for good, or they'll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice "Ali" Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She's ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers…until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It's then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters…and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies…and she isn't the girl she thought she was. She's connected to the woman responsible for killing—and turning—Cole's mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima—even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.





Now on to the quotes!

Meet the Queen and her Court

Alice in Zombieland

My Favorite between Ali and Cole! I chose a passage between Ali and Cole that was hot!!!!!!

“Are you trying to tell me you’ve never been kissed?”

I pressed my tongue to the roof of my mouth. He looked so dubious, and his tone had bordered on insulting. “Yeah. So?”

“So, I’m shocked, that’s all. You’re …you.”

“In-sul-ting. “Me?” I asked stiffly.

“Yeah. Hot,” he said.

Wait. Me? Hot?

He laughed down at me. “No one’s told you that, either, have they?”

I could only shake my head.

“You’ve clearly been hanging around idiots.” His gaze lowered—and stayed—on my lips, and he lost his gleam of amusement. “I’m going to kiss you, Ali.”

Here? Now? I thought again, my panic returning and my brain short-circuiting. “But I might be bad at it, and we don’t know each other well, and you don’t—And I don’t—And we can’t—“The words rushed out of me, but nothing came out fully formed.

“Apparently I do. And you will. And we can.” With that, he lowered his head, meshed his lips against mine and stole my breath.

About Ali’s bad driving.

“I can't promise we'll ever use you for a hasty getaway," Cole said, "but with a little work, you might be able to race my grandmother-while she's on her scooter.” 

Argument between Kat and Cole about Frosty.

“He ignored me, thank God, saying to Kat, "Let go of Frosty's leash. You're choking the life out of him."

Kat's eyes narrowed to tiny slits, a sure sign of her aggression. "He deserves to choke. He didn't keep little frosty in his pants this summer." the words snapped like a whip.

"He did." Cole snapped back with unwavering confidence.

"Not."

"Did."

"Not!"

"Did,"

"Not, not, not!" she shouted with a stomp of her foot.

"What are we five?" Cole said.

"Six.”

Through The Zombieglass

Don’t normally condone violence but this scene between Cole and Ali was hot!

“I felt my hand curl into a fist. Felt my elbow draw back. Felt my arm dart forward, my knuckles crack into Cole's jaw. I couldn't stop myself.

His head whipped to the side, and blood leaked from a cut in his lip.

Behind me, gasps of shock abounded.

"I'm recovered," I said. "Believe me now?"

Those violet eyes slitted when they found me. "Assault and battery is illegal."

"So have me arrested."

He closed what little distance there was between us. Suddenly I could feel his warmth of his breath caressing my skin. "How about I put you over my lap and spank you instead?"

"How about I knee your balls into your throat?"

"If you're going to play with that particular area, I'd rather you use your hands."

"My hands aren't going near that area ever again."

A pause. Then, "I bet I could change your mind," he whispered huskily.

"I bet I could bash yours." I drew back another fist, but he was ready and caught me midswing. His pupils dilated, a sign of arousal. Another sign: he began to pant. He was acting like I'd tried to unbuckle his jeans rather than smack fire out of him.

"Hit me again," he said, still using the same whispered tone, "and I'll take it as an invitation."

I was just as bad. I trembled with longing I couldn't control and struggled to catch my breath. "An invitation to do what?"

His grip loosened, his fingers rubbing my skin. A caress, not a warning. "I guess we'll find out together.”

Love me some Gavin and the scenes between him and Ali are classic and funny!

“Plus—and please hear me when I say this—I was serious every time I told you I have no interest in you.”

His grin only widened. “You realize you’re just making yourself more attractive to me, right? First, do you really not understand how beautiful you are? Even to a guy like me. And second, there’s never been a female I couldn’t win over.”

Me? Beautiful? “Maybe you’ve gotten the women you’ve wanted in the past, but there’s always a first time for failure.”

He clutched his heart, as if in pain.

Frosty and Kat well because they rock!

“Kitty Kat,” Frosty said.

“Jerk face,” she retorted, surprising me.

His eyes frosted over in tribute to his name. “What’d I do this time?

“Nothing. I thought I’d be mad just to be mad and liven things up. We were getting stale.”

In a snap, he lost his air of coldness. He barked a laugh. “You’re too sexy for words, you know that?”

Another swoony one between Cole and Ali.

“It’s too late for that. I’m going to kiss you, Ali.”

I was the one to shake my head. “You made your bed.”

“Yes, but I want you in it.”

THE QUEEN OF ZOMBIE HEARTS- Smaller teasers for this one since I know some of you haven’t read the book yet.

Gavin trying to give Ali sex advice because it’s hilarious.

“So you want any tips for taking things from ordinary to extraordinary?” he asked. “I’m something of a sexpert.”

“Actually, you’re something of a slutpert.”

“Don’t be ridiculous. That’s not even a word.”

Cole and Ali J

“Ali.” His voice, so husky, was temptation and silk, stroking over me. “Did I ever tell you all the reasons I love you?”

“No.” I licked my lips and shook my head, gathered the courage to face him. His eyes were heavy-lidded, smoldering.

He liked the tattoo.

“Tell me now,” I commanded softly.

“Where should I start?”

“How about with number one?”

Meet River! New hot boy!

“She isn’t your angel cake, or pop tart,” Cole snapped. “She’s mine.”

Don’t laugh. Or snicker.

“Yeah.” I said. “I’m his.” And okay, I snickered. But only a little!

Cole flicked me an irritated glance. I batted my eyelashes at him, all what did I do now?

“I could have her if I wanted her,” River said, his ego showing, “but I don’t, so this argument is pointless.”

And more River because he’s kinda awesome!

“Are you challenging me to a Zombie Kill Off?’

“Person who slays the most evil spirits wins?” He nodded. “Done.”

“Not done. There’s no way to keep track. The ones I fight turn to ash.”

His grin widened. “Smack talk already.”

Cole and Ali Talking about Kat’s awesomeness.

“Yeah, but she’s loyal and sweet and funny,” I replied, “And if I wasn’t in love with you, and I was into girls, and she was into girls, I’d be all over her. Guaranteed Frosty wouldn’t stand a chance. She’s already assured me I’m irresistible.”

He stopped rubbing to peer at me with abject desperation. “Let’s pretend. Just for a day. You’re into girls.”

Boys! I gathered clean clothes and shouldered my way past him.

“What?” he called as I shut the door. “Was it something I said?”

Kat to Ali.

“Always blame the guy.” She said. “That’s my new motto. And I’ve been plotting revenge. It goes a little something like this. We run away together, get married the way I know you want to, and then, just for grins and gigs, we send the boys a postcard that says, and I quote, Are you still planning to murder your postman?”

This girl…Light. Of. My. Life. “I’m in!”

  8. Yes, hitting in relationships is bad, but this is fiction, and in fiction sometimes the guy deserves to be punched. ;)

  9. I'm not sure where we're supposed to leave the rabbit's question, "Find the rabbit...what would you give to find out...WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!?" so I put it here.

    I want The Queen of ZH SOOOOOOO badly! I've been waiting way too long for this book!
