“Yep, the assholes always survive. Nevertheless, there is a spectrum to assholery. I’m pretty low on scale.”
It is Dagger’s metal baseball bat, general mistrust in people and low-grade assholery that has kept her alive for the last 10 months. While it is the first day of King, out in the wild and he begs Dagger to take him with her. To which Dagger couldn’t but agree reluctantly.
“I roll my eyes, but if I’m to maintain my low-grade asshole status ...more
Dagger has taken to the zombie apocalypse like a little duckling takes to water, and has done incredibly well at staying alive thanks to her general mistrust of other people. While others seek strength in numbers, Dagger knows that she's best off on her own - until ...more
Zombie Playlist was everything I wanted, and more. I might have actually clapped my hands when I saw the clever contents page! The romance was so original and refreshing... Funny, sweet, love blossoming amidst a backdrop of zom ...more
Reading this book was like watching a really exciting film. I needed popcorn to complete the experience. Where to start? First, it's so cleverly written. The table of contents is literally a playlist, which I am listening to as I type. And K.J. weaves the songs into each chapter marvelously. I cannot imagine how much time this extra layer of awesomeness took. It's bri ...more
Let me start by saying that there's nothing I didn't like about this story. Hands down, I was in it until I finished and now I'm screaming Ms. Chapman's name while chanting "Encore! Encore!" The only thing I felt upset about was I want more and there is no more. (Unless ...more
Seriously, though, this novella was a one sitting read that had me on the edge of my seat. The humour was so perfectly blended with the horror. And I'm not a fan of zombie books. At all. But this was high entertainment.
Dagger is absolutely awesome. Her character arc is one of the strongest I've seen in a while. She's fierce and formidable and funny as hell. The voice is incredible.
And King is equally brilliant. His character ...more
Her interactions with King were great and I really liked King as well. I think he was portrayed as humanity in general as he was usually reluctant to join in on the zombie-bashing. So with Dagger meeting him, brings forth the humani ...more
Chapman has a way of making characters relatable and the story line just sucks you in. Even though it is a short story Dagger and King show growth and depth as characters. I love that each chapter was a song on a playlist and I could listen to it while I read.
Even if zombies or short stories ...more
This is a perfect, quick read, and this narrative suits being a novella. Dagger is hilarious!!! Her voice is so distinctive. She had me laughing out loud throughout. King is a great character who ultimately breaks down her walls. The pair together have an ebb and flow.
For a short read, Chapman manages character development, narrative development, and background/ history with ease. A refreshing read in the zombie genre. I ...more
i loved this quick read had me giggling away throughout this book, dagger and king what a pair these to are, i loved the choice of songs i could almost hear them playing in my head.
have read a few books from this author and have not been disappointed once.
if you like zombie apocalypse books with a bit of humor this is the one to read.
Dagger is one sassy, badass character and I just loved going on this little adventure with her! So much happens that I don’t want to spoil anything but I absolutely love, love how her and King got away from the crazy little cult they got sucked into. Seriously you guys I was lau ...more
I will say out the outset of this review that most of my feelings towards this book are on me. This was a fun story and most of my reasons for not liking it more are a matter of preference. Zombies aren’t usually my thing but I had been following Chapman on Instagram for a while and wanted to support a fellow indie author, so knowing this was quite short, I took a chance.
The two main characters, Dagger and King, were on opposi ...more
Dagger is making her way to Cornwall. There is a house that she owns there and a safe haven, from the zombies (or bitey-assholes as she calls them), when she saves King, a man who has spent the last ten months in a bunker. He begs her to help him, which she agrees to, reluctantly
This book should really be called How a badass survived the zombie apocalypse. I loved this novella, so much so I re ...more
Second of all, Dagger is great. I loved the gender role reversal between her and her zombie-playlist8unwelcome side-kick, King. Talk about a story for female empowerment.
Third of all: Zombies. Now, this isn't typically a thing I look forward to. I actually avoided reading this at first because I'm not that crazy about this genre, but if you are, this is one you CAN NOT MISS.
Fourth: Dagger's sass is exqui ...more
