NOTE: I am going to forgo my normal review and divide this one down a little different. This was a fantastic Zombie read that I would recommend to anyone.

Mystery: Yes Y’all, My Life as a White Trash Zombie has a little mystery in it. Take it from a person who reads Mysteries/Thrillers that this one was really well done. I honestly didn’t figure it out until she did. Also, the secondary mystery of who turned her was fantastically done also. The whole darn thing was just so well planned out.

Zombies: Gotta love them! I mean these aren’t the typical rotting zombies and I liked it. Lets just say that Zombies are monsters with sometimes mushy hearts (that was a semi-quote from the book). Oh but don’t worry there are still BRAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIINNNNNNNNS involved.

Characters: I think most of the characters in this story were so well flushed out that you felt like part of the world. Made for a very enjoyable reading experience.

Why I gave it a 4.5: It was Zombie-rrific and a very good summer read!

    Thanks for the review. I've not found a zombie book I've like more than a 3 so far, but this one sounds intriguing. Cool!

    hmmm, everyone keeps raving about this book, but the story just doesn't appeal to me. BUT you all keep making me second-guess whether or not I should try it. I usually agree with you about pretty much everything…. Great review! smiles…

    I knew I really wanted to read this one. I'm curious about these different type of zombies you mentioned. Sounds like a riot! πŸ˜‰

  8. Amanda

    I picked this book up based on your rating (and seeing it elsewhere on the web). Can't wait to start it!

  9. Mardel

    I agree with you – it was a good book. I liked the way she handled the whole zombie things too, twisted it, made it a bit more interesting than the regular shuffling brain dead thing. πŸ™‚

    I bought this. How could I not with a cover like that. I so totally want that chicks hair! It is floating around towards the top of my TBR pile. Can't wait to read it.
