Yeah...this was definitely not my thing. Both facepalmed and hoity-toity should not be in the same book. "Extra sparkly unicorn fart kind of special" also made an appearance. I use these to illustrate one of the most annoying aspects of the book; the bizarre swings between quasi-Victorian language and contemporary youthful slang. I also found the characters flat and, honestly, the basic premise of girl on zombie kind of grossed me out. I think I can quite definitely say that I will not be reading anything additional by Lia Habel. (Oh yes, did I mention that the series is named Gone With the Respiration. Seriously.)

Tracey Wow. Last time I recommend a book to you. Oh wait - I didn't. Sorry it wasn't more intellectually worthy.
