Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up.

But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that

Angel is a not stop go go brain muncher in this edition. I really enjoyed the fast paced edge of my seat constant danger and destruction mode she stayed in for most of the book.
Points that made this a winner
1) Angel is growing up, acting more mature, taking responsibility
2) She goes to the dark side, for survival but is not squeaky clean
3) Her love life muddles, I love a messy heart
4) She is not the docile doormat little zombie woman- YES!
5) She knows when a good bite matters. LOL- you'll get

This audiobook was just a lot of fun! Over the past few months, I have kept circling back to this book wanting to buy it. I have so many audiobooks in my personal library that I still haven't read so I tried really hard to resist adding any more to the pile. But I kept coming back to it. I finally caved in and bought the book and am really happy that I did. This series has been a lot of fun so far and is the perfect choice when I am looking f

Not as enjoyable as the first two in the series, but still pretty good. I found the pacing in the first half really slow, and there were some aspects I found really cliched and boring, also Angel's attitude towards certain people pissed me off.

-The plot was kind of all over the place — there were some mysterious deaths, a zombie movie that was being filmed, then Angel getting attacked by a zombie she made in book 1, there was also evul scientists/corporations doing evul things, and it wa

This series! I love it so much! I’m actually kind of mad at myself because I didn’t wait longer to listen to White Trash Zombie Apocalypse, but dammit, it’s hard to resist these. I want to devour the audiobooks one right after another, but at the same time want to spread them out. It’s a freaking dilemma for sure.

Just like the first and second installment, White Trash Zombie Apocalypse kicked ass! The author knows how to pack a lot in w

I've enjoyed this series more than I thought I would when I picked up the first book. It's generally just mind-candy but, hey, I got absolutely nothing against that. I like Angel's voice and the humor laced throughout and I think that, more than anything, elevated this series, for me, above it's compatriots - so much so that I went out and bought this third installment and was very excited to start reading it.

So it was a bit disappointing when I found myself not really loving it.

Again with the liking-but-not-loving in this series. I was kind of expecting something pretty different than what I got based on the title. Not that that's necessarily a BAD thing, just different than what I kinda maybe hoped for.

But for what the book was, I did like it. I just wish that some of the repetitive recap stuff would peter out... We're now 3 books into the series, so it's no longer necessary to tell us that Angel is a zombie. If recap info is needed, it should be plot info that peopl
In White Trash Zombie Apocalypse, Angel Crawford is knee deep in problems from dealing with her Dad to trying to deciding how she feels about her "not-quite" boyfriend. You think that would be enough to keep our curious little zombie out of trouble, but nope..she is asking questions. Her little Nancy Drew hat is constantly on and she picks up on things. She soon discovers the secret lab is still open for business. Things get seriously complicated when a zombie movie comes to town and the labs in ...more

Recommends it for: people who think zombies are just misunderstood.
A zombie movie is being filmed in her home town and the zombies might or might not be real. When a body shows up on the movie set, everyone's favorite coroner's office zombie, Angel once again finds herself in the middle of the shambling, moaning action.

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse feels a lot like a ticker tape parade. All the stars are there, you watch them drive by, you cheer...then you go home and wonder what just happened. A lot of new characters are introduced who are peripheral to the s

Where do I start for this third installment of the life of Angel? Angel is still trying to have something that resembles a normal life even if she is a zombie (well adjusted as she is) but life just isn’t going to let that happen just yet.

The fact that there is a zombie movie being filmed in her town is just a complication in some of the things that are going to happen. Add to it that fact that it rains almost the whole book which gives a whole new level of stress to everything and just adds to
We have a a small town with zombies... where they are filming a zombie movie. Right. It also involves dead people (who don't move anymore) and everyone is doing secret shit.

You know, so far this was my least favourite book of this series. It's still fun to have a zombie book with actually intelligent zombies who aren't the enemy or a hostile element in the world, but the protagonists who do their things. Here they even have almost like a zombie mafia! How is that not cool?

Review from Tenacious Reader:

3.5/ 5 stars

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse brings us more of the Angel Crawford that has kept us reading through the series. She is still as awesome, outspoken and as against the grain as she always has been. Oh, and of course a bit irreverent and crass, but always in the best and most amusing ways. She also seems less broken than in the first two books. The first two books she was still pulling her life in order, and recoverin

”Hello, my name is Angel, and it’s been three weeks since I’ve shambled.”

4 stars. I loved this one a lot. This is my second favorite book in the series so far (the first one is still my fave) and there was just so many different elements that I enjoyed.

Angel and her father’s relationship took such a great turn in this book and it was easily the highlight for me because man, thes

Daaaammnn, things do not look great for Angel! I mean, bullet holes, water up to her knees and a tilted house?!

And she even lost her pants!!!

4.5 stars (the four likes are for the comments above!)

In an amusing, if ironic, twist, a zombie movie is filming in Angel Crawford’s hometown and due to some strange events, well, stranger than normal, fake zombies and real zombies are mingling on the streets of town, forcing Angel to find out what’s going on and why the real zombies are aggressively out an

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse felt messier than the previous installments, as Angel continues to go through development with her dad, her not-quite-boyfriend and her job.

There's certainly a lot happening with an evil 'corporation' wanting to use zombies as research, not caring if they treat them like fodder, and Pietro's organisation trying to infiltrate it, with Angel's help. There's a lot of operatives in the field getting caught in the crossfire, including Angel's newly made zombie super sol

The third installment in the White Trash Zombie series had an overall lighter tone compared to the previous two stories. There was still violence and a bit of gore and plenty of brains, but many aspects of Angel's life and relationships felt much more positive than before.

She has repaired her relationship with Marcus, improved her relationship with her father, and has formed a relationship with Pietro. This, among other things, gave a sort of happily-ever-after vibe that had me thinking this is

I think I checked this book out 4 or 5 times since its release last year but held off on reading it till now. Finally, after some hemming and hawing, all the conditions were right to revisit Angel and her zombie filled world. This series is one that evokes comfort (on par to cozy mysteries). The books are funny and the characters loveable. Yet Rowland never lets us forget the deep inner strength her character's possess, especially Angel. I love how far Angel has come in her journey to loving her ...more

If you're a fan of Angel, you won’t be disappointed by this next segment in the series. It’s been great to see Angel grow and become a confident woman and zombie. The plot and characters in this series are a bit subdued. There isn’t over the top action and in your face drama. But the writing and plot develops slowly and each emotion is described in a way that makes the reader feel that they are next to Angel.

Angel has once again proven that she’s got a big heart. I like that she’s making huge st

I’m generally not a fan of zombie lit, nor do I generally prefer my monsters to be anything other than horrifying, but when I read the first book of this series for Halloween Bingo last year, I fell in love. The titular zombie, Angel, is the perfect heroine: sassy and feisty and fiercely independent, but also vulnerable and even tenderly caring at times. In this third book of the series, she is still learning to navigate her new place in the world as both newbie zombie in a hidden zombie society ...more

This is the first book I've read from the White Trash Zombie series because I only found out about them but didn't felt like starting from the first one.(yeah, i'm lazy) But even though I didn't read the previous books it's so easy to catch on to the story anyway and after a while I felt like it didn't matter if I didn't knew somebody or something.

Zombies and more Zombies, my kind of book. I loved this concept for Zombies because it's so unique but still entirely gross. Braiinnnnss!

I really like how far Angel grew since book one. Not too much and not too little. Just the right amount. I also like that she has some setbacks throughout her journey.

She continues to build a better life for her dad and herself. She still works hard on her GED and of course she still works in the morgue.

The relationship with her dad still a bit strained but both are working on it. I love that it takes a while, instead just having a magic cure. It has his up and downs with them two. And things de

I think the newness factor of these has kind of worn out its welcome. I appreciate the direction Angel's life takes in this book—I like that she's taking charge of herself and being responsible—but it felt too convenient. The magic of the first book was having Angel find her way on her own, but this endearing quality of Angel's personality has become practically nonexistent in book #3 because Pietro basically takes care of every l
I seem to only read one of these books per year and that will change. I will be finishing this series this year! I still love the narrator, she absolutely IS Angel Crawford. She may not even have a southern accent in real life and I would never know. After the chaos of Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues, Angel is just looking to settle down and take her GED. Well, a movie is being filmed at the local high school and hey, it's a zombie movie! Naturally, something fishy is going on. And someon ...more

I think I will leave it at that for anymore for this series as it getting a bit too much now with the plots, I'm loving angel and her attitude towards being a zombie and understanding it, but there is all these special agents and operatives yet angel is the one to uncover everything and work it all out before everyone else, and somehow gets herself in these weird situations where she can't do anything, it's all getting a bit farfetched for me now so I'll leave it at that ...more

UPDATE- the narrator I normally adore had a bad cold during the recording of this book. The sounds grossed me out so much, I couldn't finish. Disappointed.

Waiting until July to get the audio version. The narrator, Allison McLemore, is the best narrator , period.
She makes the series a hilarious 5 star+.
