This book is laugh out loud funny... completely and absolutely hilarious! David and Sarah have all the problems of a regular marriage. They bicker, they argue over mundane things, they tease each other and all before/after/during bludgeoning any zombies in their midst.
Sarah absolutely rocks my face off, she is smart, witty and resourceful- I love her! David totally reminds me of my husband, which means he is awesome!
Married with Zombies is super fast-paced, crazy funny, and even a little romantic. (Not in a hot, steamy zombie sex way... but in a cute, romantic comedy way!) This is an absolute must read for everyone! I had never read a zombie book before this one, I figured that so wasn't my thing... Um, it is. MwZ will make you an instant fan of all things zombie!(less)

At the end of of Married With Zombies, David and Sarh had decided they were such kick ass zombie slayers that they would go into post Zombie Apocalypse business!
Flip This Zombie picks up right where MWZ left off- so ZombieBusters Extermination Inc. at your service! For all your zombie needs!
However, this time around they are dealing with an entirely different bread of zombies. Faster... smarter... "Bionic Zombies" to quote Sarah.
When they get their next 'job' via a note at a survivor camp (What? You think cell phones survived the Zombie Apocalypse?) the last thing they were expecting was a Luke Wilson look alike- mad-scientist type guy, CLAIMING to have found a cure for the zombie epidemic. Oh... and he was pointing a "shit-load of guns" controlled by a little remote straight at them.
DR. Kevin Barnes needs them to CATCH a zombie (Suuuuure- no big deal Doc!) in order to 'test' his cure on the infected. Well, Dave was uuuum- less than enthusiastic about that idea. But, Sarah was more easily swayed by a shower and an arsenal of awesome weaponry!
"We'd even gotten one of those handhelp multi-shot cannons I'd coveted. I have to admit, I creamed my shorts a little everytime I looked at it all awesome and deadly and stuff in the back of the van." -Sarah
Sarah is SO my kinda chick! I freaking love her.
They DO catch a zombie and 'The Kid' (Robbie-NOT a zombie) ... but the good doctor needs more zombies. (You know for research and all.) Needless to say, they go on their next 'Catch a Zombie Mission' and everything is going fairly smoothly- UNTIL the zombie gets loose INSIDE their van while in transit back to the lab! *GASP*
Luckily they crash right outside the lab and the doc saves them. But David is now positive that Dr. Kevin is behind these new bionic zombies and LEAVES Sarah when she refuses to quit helping with the doc's research! *tears*
Sarah is seconds away from being eaten by zombies on her first solitary mission when David bursts in and saves the day!!!
"He was beautiful and dependable and whole and mine! And I owed him a big fucking apology. And probably a blow job or something, because I had truly screwed up." -Sarah
You will NEVER guess how this turns out dude! It's totally an OH. MY. FREAKING. GOD. moment(s). I'm still amazed... Married With Zombies is zombie awesomeness at it's best. Flip This Zombie is seriously DOUBLY awesome and I absolutely cannot wait to start Eat, Slay, Love!(less)
Enclave was FANTASTIC like you can't believe if you haven't already read it! (WHY haven't you read it?)
It seemed to me to be a cross between The Hunger Games and the Chaos Walking series with maybe a little, teensy tiny bit of The Maze Runner thrown in the mix. Since I freaking LOVED all those books... Well, for lack of anything better- WIN.
Deuce was an amazing heroine! She is fierce, brave and completely confident in her role as a Huntress. She was flat out breath-taking, and probably my favorite heroine of the year!
Then there was Fade... Ahhhh, Fade.
I rarely quote in my reviews, but I MUST quote Fade here,
"I never belonged anywhere until I met you."
MAJOR *SWOON* for Fade. I loved seeing Fade and Deuce together... then they are forced topside and they meet a few interesting people. I'm sorry, but when Stalker kisses Deuce in the woods... I almost, ALMOST forgot Fade. It was smokin' hot.
I loved so many things about this book, but one thing just made it all round FIVE stars... there were zombies!!!! YES!(less)

Since the Zombie Apocalypse went down, there have been rumors about the Midwest Wall (WIN... that means I'm safe!!!) Sarah and David are slowly making their way toward the Wall, with the zombie cure- hoping that it actually exists!
In route to the Wall, they happen across Nicole Nessing (a TV star from before) running from a pack of zombies. After checking to make sure she hadn't been bitten, Sarah doesn't like the way Dave is practically DROOLING all over her and contemplates throwing her back... Only for a minute though.
They get BACK on the road, heavy one blonde, pre-zombie apocalypse TV star and they are immediately bombarded by trucks, inhabited by freaks racing toward them demanding they come to their "camp", because "This here road is our territory." type stuff. They have no choice...
"Unfortunately, I felt like we were lambs going to a slaughter, not about to frolic in a field or something." -Sarah
The leader of this 'town' (ahem... cult) decided as punishment for trespassing on their road- Dave has to go into 'The Pit' or...you know an in-ground freaking swimming pool filled will 30 zombies! Sarah and Nicole get to go free in order to spread the word to everyone else NOT TO COME NEAR THEIR TOWN. Dude- duh! Make a freaking sign you psycho!
"All's fair in love and zombies." -Sarah
Okay... so now this is the tricky part. Too many details/not enough... spoilers... UGH! Here we go! I'm opting for vagueness, because I HATE to spoil this book! It was SO AMAZING!
Does Dave make it through the Zombie Pit of Death??? I'll NEVER tell... But, Sarah finally tells Nicole about the cure that she's got hiding under her shirt... just in case and they pick up ANOTHER stow away ex-rockstar guy!
They make it to the famous Midwest Wall, which is actually a HUGE fence, surrounded by heavily armed guards, topped with razor sharp wire and oh- surrounded by a horde of zombies bigger than they've ever seen before. I know.
This book is a ROLLER-COASTER ride of crazy zombie AWESOME. Seriously, I was constantly GASPING for breathe, doing the whole "Oh my god! Oh my God! Oh my God!" thing the ENTIRE time. I'm telling you- I love this series more and more with each and every book! (less)

That’s not in all actuality a BAD thing, but there are certain aspects that I feel it necessary that one must posses to REALLY be called a zombie. And “feelings” isn’t one of them. Sorry.
Some of you may be recalling a few of my past reviews, such as: Zombies Don’t Cry by Rusty Fischer and Dearly Departed by Lia Habel and you may be calling me a hypocrite. Well, just HOLD THE PHONE a minute. There is a WORLD of difference between these three zombie books! Then why compare them you ask? (you guys like how I argue your side with myself don’t you????) Let it be known before I go off on my big rant of an explanation, that I don’t like comparing books to each other (and RARELY do so) but I feel it’s appropriate in this case to fully get my point across!
In Zombies Don’t Cry, YES, Maddy does in fact have “feelings”. But Zombies Don’t Cry is a Young Adult, comedic and light-hearted take on the zombie book genre in general! Maddy DIES, and comes back to life. She’s not BITTEN, or attacked by a rabid, man eating, plague ridden, once human THING… So really it’s in an entirely different league and I shouldn’t compare the two, right?
When I started Warm Bodies, all I knew for CERTAIN was that it was told from a zombie’s perspective. OMG right?! I mean seriously- we always get the HUMAN’S side of the apocalypse, how freaking badass to get to hear it told from a ZOMBIE’S aspect?!
Turns out… Not so much badass, as WTF?!
‘R’ is our (hero?) main character, he is a zombie. A real zombie. Like a rotting, “eat your face off”, brain licking zombie. Sexy right? And he’s QUITE philosophical for a member of the walking dead. I mean, he could’ve been ALIVE, non-rotty and doubled for Charlie Hunnan and I still would have rolled my eyes and told him to SHUT UP!!!!
Well… I may have asked him to please talk more quietly, so I could enjoy the view. Just sayin.
“Once you arrive at the end of the world, it hardly matters what route you took.”
…or how many people you ATE on the way there right?
Then we hear about his boring zombie days and routine…
“Eating is not a pleasant business. I chew off a man’s arm, and I hate it. I hate his screams, because I don’t like hurting people, but this is the world now.”
As we get FARTHER into Warm Bodies, I get more and more irritated by this OVER-analytical zombie guy who feels it necessary to question every SINGLE, SOLITARY detail of his life. DUDE. YOU. ARE. A. ZOMBIE. That’s it. Deal with it, and MOVE ON.
I also have to mention his zombie wife (who he catches having an “affair”), adopted zombie kids (because his JUNK isn’t functional.) Um… THANKS. See? For me, Warm Bodies went WAY beyond “fiction” into completely freaking RIDICULOUS.
Alas, the story continues… On a “hunting” trip (you know… Where they ‘hunt’ and EAT people and such) R saves a human girl from being an entree and brings her back to his zombie “home”.
And on, and ON, AND ON it goes… until the complete and absolute ridiculousness that I mentioned earlier is quadrupled as R begins to start displaying humanistic type traits and at this point I’m only still reading because I’m utterly DUMBFOUNDED by what everyone loves so much about this book.
Now, there’s no doubt Isaac Marion can WRITE a beautiful story and Warm Bodies was indeed different from ANYTHING I’ve read before or since. Did I HATE IT? No… Warm Bodies was alright, in a completely WTF kind of way.(less)
First- I have to mention some of the crazy fabulous chapter titles of this book!
Chapter 6- You Might Be A Zombie If... Chapter...moreEpic awesomeness. Epic.
First- I have to mention some of the crazy fabulous chapter titles of this book!
Chapter 6- You Might Be A Zombie If... Chapter 10- The Proper Care and Feeding of Zombies Chapter 11- The Zombie Pledge Chapter 17- Jock Blocked Chapter 30- A Pimp Called Death
A Pimp Called Death? WIN. I mean really... It just doesn't get any more badass than that okay?
Maddy Swift is the epitome of freaking spectacular. She is delightfully witty and entertaining, she is filled to the brim with raw teenage appeal! I LOVED her.
There is one (try 900, but I'm trying NOT to overwhelm everyone) part that I have to mention because I absolutely reveled in this particular detail!
*possible minor spoiler* After Maddy gets taken to her Zombie initiation ceremony (YES! I swear... a ceremony!) Dane, Chloe and her are driving back to town and Dane is patiently explaining the difference between a Zombie and a Zerker (the bad Zombies- oh yes... there's a difference). Maddy makes a comment about vampires and Dane looks at her all nuts and says,
"Are you crazy? Vampires aren't real! That's pure fiction!"
I adore this! Usually in a paranormal type book, once you find out that one species of supernatural is real... then we find out that every myth we've ever heard is reality. Not so in Zombies Don't Cry- Another WIN, to make this book completely unique!
Let's talk about Stamp... He's the new guy in school, a jock, and super hot- and he totally has a thing for Maddy! He likes her pre-Zombie and post-Zombie crisis *Awwwww* There's one problem... Zombies can't date Normals. Hey! It's in the handbook and I didn't make the rules! Zombie Law #1 people. Learn it.
Oh my gosh, how I love Stamp! Is that totally creepy since he's like 17 and I'm 27? *tears* Stamp is just 'that guy' you know what I mean! He's yummy times 2, but also sweet and nice and uuuum totally built. When Maddy turns him down for the Fall Formal (ahem! Zombie Law #1 remember?) I thought I was going to die. DIE, I tell you! I'm thinking,
"Pick me! Pick me! I'll go with you Stamp!"
Pathetic? Entirely possibly. I'm okay with that.
I'm almost done, I SWEAR! One of my main 'issues' with zombie romance is the whole "I'm going to eat you alive." situation... HOW exactly does that say I love you? That's just ONE MORE thing that makes Fischer's ZDC absolute perfection to me. Maddy wasn't bitten and turned... she was struck by lightening and she's living on lamb brains- seasoned with thyme and garlic, smothered in soy sauce and chilled over ice!
By the end of the book I still loved Stamp... but I was totally Team Dane! Everyone MUST read this right now so we can chat about it!!!! (less)

FIRST, I feel it DETRIMENTAL to my very existence to mention the dedication in this book! (which for the record, I rarely notice- but it appears I may have to start paying more attention.)
Gobble, gobble, gobble
Hehe... I feel like this is made of win! I don't know who John is, and I don't know if Kirsty McKay was referring to turkeys or zombies- but I don't care because either way, that's an epic dedication.
Bobby is a super, epic chick of AWESOME... Wrapped in witty sarcastic charm and coated with attitude. I loved her! Can you tell? Is it obvious?
Having recently moved BACK to the UK after spending the last six years in the US, Bobby is feeling very angsty and irritated!
"When we moved to the US six years ago, they thought I sounded as British as the Queen. Now that I'm back in the motherland again, I'm like some weird hybrid, a freako chimera with an ever-changing accent."
It's not helping that she's on the "School Trip from Hell". Which in all reality is a ski trip with all her new classmates before the new school year starts! Yep... That pretty much sounds like the definition of hell to me. But refuge is in sight, as they are FINALLY on their way home!
When the bus stops for lunch at the Cheery Chomper (hehe), Bobby stays on board, unwilling to endure another lunch of solitude and having food tossed at her. Mr. Taylor stays because he's got the flu and Smitty... Because Smitty is trouble. Trouble swathed in leather and complete with a fake ID.
"an ink-haired indie kid in a leather jacket. Rob Smitty: rebel without a pause, freak show, and drop out in the making. But the best snowboarder, definitely. When I first clapped eyes on him, I was convinced he'd be the head of the underage drinking club - and he is - but dude knows how to throw himself down a mountain too. [...] Respect due, in spite of the try-hard guyliner and bad attitude."
See? How freaking E-P-I-C is she? I know right? I LOVED her inner dialog! Smitty gets Mr. Taylor to go get him a sandwich, by cleverly threatening student cruelty and starvation or something... As soon as he's gone Smitty is trying to convince the driver to let them off the bus for some mischief or another when something slaps the windshield... then it comes AGAIN... only this time they see it's unmistakabley a hand- so the bus driver gets out to deal with the teen miscreants messing with his bus!
Then something slams into the back of the bus, dazed and confused- Smitty gets out to see what's going on... What he finds is a puddle of blood and a shrieking figure in a blue coat running toward them!!!!
Alice Hicks BARELY gets on the bus before Smitty locks her out (I'd have locked her out... Not even because she was a hateful witch- but because hands are smacking the windows, bloody streaks marring the snow... Then some crazy, screaming person comes running at me? No thank you. Just sayin.)
"Dead!" she screams. "Everybody's dead!"
HOLY.... OHMYGOD right?!?!
Now, I know I went into a lot of detail there... But I COULDN'T HELP IT! And honestly... I didn't give that much away, according to my kindle- I was only 4% in by this point!
We end up with the new kid, a badboy, a nerd, a pretty princess and a gas station attendant. Quite a band of misfits to survive the apocalypse... But these characters were fantastically portrayed!
While I loved Bobby for her wit, snark and general awesome... I loved Alice's princess-y bi-polar!
"Shanika's [her BFF] got my CoutureCandy bag, the bitch! Drive!" she says to the driver. "Run them over!"
And Pete, the nerd extrordinaire, is convinced they're all being watched and everything that is happening is some elaborate scheme by the government or new world order. Whoever is behind it all has cutoff every means of escape and made it impossible to communicate with the outside world.
Nobody beleives him. They think he's finally cracked.
"This is crazy!" [...] "Of course there are cameras; they're everywhere these days! But it doesn't mean that they've all been planted to spy on us in the even of a zombie apocalypse!"
Undead by Kirsty McKay was freaking AMAZING from BEGINING TO END! The actual plot wasn't something I NORMALLY get into, but the pure EPICNESS of the characters, the way they interacted and the dialog were enough to keep me reading well into the night and scrambling to grab Undead the next morning! Seriously, I'd read this book again today- just because!
With that, I leave you with more quotes...
"If I die right here, right now, I will be ashamed. What a fail. Struck down and eaten by a bus driver, for crap's sake, in Scotland, on a school trip."
"Just because we can't see jack doesn't mean that Undead Jack and Jillaren't lurking in there with all their friends, ready to Cheerily Chomp on us."
"for one horribly, desperately embarrassing moment we fly into eachother's arms like Shaggy and Scooby Don't."
"Manic with a side of Musical Theater." ← and this has become my new tagline... for my LIFE. Just sayin!!!!

Megan Berry is a Zombie 'settler'. Basically she helps the undead settle into the afterlife.
"Welcome to your after-death session. My name is Megan. May I have your name, last name first?" -Megan doing her opening spiel.
Megan has been out of the zombie settling game for 5 years, when suddenly- right before her date with Mr. HOT senior Josh- a zombie shows up at her door ringing the doorbell.
Here's the deal. Once the zombie tells the settler whatever it is that has them bothered enough to CRAWL back from the dead, then they are good to go and head back to the grave.
WICKED interesting twist on the whole 'zombie' thing right?
But zombies CAN be brought back by dark witchcraft and these particular RC's (reanimated corpses) are very very bad and very very dangerous. Someone is raising RC's... and now Megan's childhood best friend Ethan (who is insanely hot now) is back and has decided to be her "pretend" boyfriend in order to protect her from these rogue RC's.
Dude, I know right? I WILL NOT tell you who is behind raising the RC's, but you won't freaking believe it! And the end was full of so many wicked awesome twists that I cannot WAIT to start Undead Much! (less)

Jenni- with an 'i' is standing on her front porch staring at "tiny fingers" trying to claw their way out from underneath the front door. Her terror IS MY terror from the very beginning, as she recounts the events of her family being transformed into flesh eating zombies before her very eyes.
Her abusive husband had come home the night before claiming that a homeless man had bitten him, slept on the couch and Jenni was awakened by the terrifying screams of her 3 year old son being eaten by his father. (Literally- I am almost trembling just remembering it.)
As Jenni is standing, paralyzed with fear and shock on her porch as her 12 year old 'now ZOMBIE' son is about to break through the window- Katie, a stranger in a beat-up white pick-up truck flies into her yard yelling for her to get in the truck.
Jenni barely makes it into the truck as her once precious son, whose last act was unknowingly sacrificing himself to his zombie father in his mother's place.
Amidst the chaos that has now claimed the United States, there are few places of sanctuary for the 'living'. After Katie and Jenni risk their lives and save Jenni's step-son, they make their way to Ashley Oaks (Um WIN... Fab choice in names!)
In Ashley Oaks... comes Travis (the name 'Travis' says it all doesn't it?) The picture of perfection- but which woman will he fall for? Killing zombies, going on rescue missions... in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse is there even a chance for romance?
There is nowhere to go. There is no escape. The zombies are everywhere. The First Days is terrifyingly realistic and vividly horrifying, this book is feverish and electrifying- AMAZING in every sense of the word. (less)

LOTS and lots of blood, she remembers teeth and bones... when she wakes up in the hospital. But, there isn't a scratch on her, she's whole and in tact with a nurse telling her she overdosed on a pill buffet.
She decided she's had enough of the hospital- she's leaving. She rips her IV out, when another nurse comes into tell her that two detectives want to talk to her about a body that was found not far from were she was discovered... NAKED- OD'ed on the side on the road. But she doesn't remember anything!
The nurse gives her a bag containing clothes, a note that tells her she has a new job driving the van for the morgue and these shake things with instructions to drink one only every other day.
Her first day on the job, while watching her very first autopsy...
"A dead man. Buck *ss naked with his shriveled little junk right there for everyone to see." -Angel upon seeing her first dead body.
Now, Angel can't figure out why she suddenly has the over-whelming urge to scoop this dead guys brains out of his skull with a spoon and eat them like ice cream.
Dude, as you can imagine she is more than a little freaked out by this unusual brain craving- but she fights it and goes on about her day.
The realization finally hits her that she is an actual ZOMBIE after she is out on a call one night and a rotted, gross guy tries to attack her for the body in the back of her van!Now, she has a LOT of questions! But WHO is she supposed to ask? Sure some anonymous person or zombie more likely has been leaving her notes and helping her 'survive' but how is she supposed to contact them?
Then there is Deputy Inanov... Marcus. You know, the same guy who arrested her for stealing a car (that she almost didn't know was stolen when she 'bought' it) Marcus is also insanely hot, wicked sweet, totally caring... hot, kind, sensitive... HOT. But, how can she like him like THAT? But how can she NOT? The bigger question is does HE like her like that? Or is he just a sweet, concerned and incredibly sexy police man?
"Yeah, right. I'm finally getting my life together. Too bad I had to die first." -Angel
The end of this book will totally shock you, I SO didn't see THAT coming!! My Life as a White Trash Zombie is total awesomeness. I loved watching angel go from pill-popping reject, to a mature, respectable brain-eating adult.(less)

(I wouldn't be me if I didn't always have something to say!) If you haven't read Rot & Ruin... Oh my God. PLEASE, GO get it and Dust & Decay because it comes out today!
Dust & Decay picks up just a few months after we left Benny and his friends in the last book. They are preparing for their trip across the great Rot & Ruin in hopes of finding the origin of the JET they had seen while rescuing Nix from Charlie and Hammer in last book.
An unexpected zombie outbreak IN TOWN causes Tom to drastically move up the date of their departure. He invites Morgie and Chong to go with them on an 'over-night' camping trip as a farewell. Chong is less than thrilled, and Morgie completely refuses to go. Morgie is still harboring some WICKED hard feelings over Benny and Nix being together and the last words he says to Benny are,
"I hope you die out there Benny. I hope you all die." ~Morgie
From the MOMENT their camping trip begins... YOU will NOT be able to put this book down. Danger, adventure and carnage ensue in one heart-stopping/breathe-catching moment after another.
Chong disappears into the forest, Charlie 'Pink-Eye' may still be alive and there are rumors that Gameland is back up and running. White Bear is scarier than ANY zombie, and has every bounty hunter in the Ruin looking to bring in the famous Tom Imura, Benny, Lilah and Nix... dead or alive...
Dust & Decay is FIERCE, fast-paced, gut-wrenching- and BEAUTIFULLY written. With each chapter the intensity increases, grabs a hold of you and doesn't release you until the very last page...
Jonathan Maberry weaves together witty humor, sob inducing emotion and the horror of unabashed reality in a story about family, friendship, love, loss, life... death... and of course ZoMbIeS.(less)

This series is by far my favorite horror/zombie series of books EVER. I'm literally DYING for the release of Siege in April!
Fighting to Survive is the second book in this series of zombie epic-ness, otherwise known as the As The World Dies trilogy. In The First Days, Katie and Jenny survived the zombie hordes that swarmed their city, and safely made it to a survivor camp in Ashley Oaks (yep, the name still tickles me!) with Jenni's son Jason's in tow.
As more and more survivors arrive, they're running out of space. UNLESS they decide to take back the hotel that stands in the middle of camp and expand their boundaries. The threat of zombies lurking around every corner forces Travis to pause... until he doesn't have a choice.
Jenni is still plagued with nightmares of her dead children and Katie is still haunted by the memory of her beautiful wife. My affinity toward Jenni doesn't falter one bit in this book, I still ABSOLUTELY ADORE her.
"We all know Jenni is batshit crazy, but that's okay. She's good at killing the goddamn zombies." ~Ed
The hotel was worse than anyone could have imagined, there are WAY more zombies inside than originally anticipated and Jenni ends up LOCKED inside a room with not ONE... not TWO... but THREE freaking zombies!!!! Oh. My. God.
A zombie kid runs off the ELEVATOR after they get the power back on... And HOW do you kill a zombie with a metal plate in it's head?
Ooooh, and just an FYI... be on the lookout for Otis Calhoun- aka: Crazy Calhoun, he is a freaking riot! He rides up to the fort screaming about the CIA, mafia clones and a government conspiracy,
"So even if they sit outside my house and snort up on coke so they don't feel a damn thing, I will defend myself. A good knock to the head seems to do the trick. Now the aliens, well they don't die so easily..." ~Crazy Calhoun
(he's talking about the zombies...)
Once again, Rhiannon Frater completely blows my mind with yet another heart pounding, gut wrenching, emotional and STUNNINGLY written book that you will not want to miss! Fighting to Survive will leave you BEGGING for Siege, the third and final installment of the As the World Dies trilogy!(less)

I honestly didn't exactly know what to expect going into Ushers INC. especially after LOVING Zombies Don't Cry like so hard... Ushers INC. was absolute awesomeness! I SMILED the entire time, this is such a feel good- FUN read!
It's the year 2017 (if my math is correct so DON'T quote me dude!) and vampires, zombies, werewolves- basically all things that go bump in the night have 'come out of the closet'.
Abby, who is wonderfully sarcastic and full of awesome, Zach, Cliff and Tracy are all best friends. They work together at the theater and all live at the Merriwether House for Wayward Teens... (they're orphans)
Ushers INC starts at the end (which generally annoys the crap out of me- but it totally worked for this book!) then goes back to tell us HOW Ushers INC was formed... on a night like any other night there was a zombie outbreak in Theater 6... I HAVE NEVER laughed so hard in my freaking life.
Bottom line- I cannot explain this book in all it's hilarity and do it justice!
"Just then the werewolf roars and we cling to each other, B-movie actress style, screaming into each others ears."
"I mean, first zombies, then werewolves, now... now volleyball vampires!"
Seriously, my ENTIRE review could consist of nothing but quotes that I wrote down and loved from this book!(less)
