Book Description:

For 18-year-old Algonquin "Alley" Rhodes, living in an era in which vampires, werewolves, and zombies are the norm is not what it's cracked up to be. Unlike most human girls at her high school, dating, especially the undead variety, is the last thing on her mind. Alley just wants to leave Cornersville Trace, go to college, and make something of herself. But then, while critiquing a local band for the school newspaper, Alley the Ice Queen falls head over heels for the guest singer. Like Alley, Doug truly loves music, and she feels as if he is singing just for her. They begin dating, and Alley overlooks what is obvious to everyone else. Doug isn't just a Goth—he isn't even human—he's a zombie. As Alley's world is turned upside down, she must make decisions with major ramifications for her future.

reviews plate copy January’s release of I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It as been on my TBR pile for a short bit, and I finally got the chance to give it a go. I was quickly disappoint though, and found myself struggling to continue reading. This story seems a cross of Dazed and Confused and Shaun of the Dead. I am all about humor and comedy, but this book was just a little over the top for me. I did not even finish out the book. You will see the book shortly as a Second Chance Giveaway, if you are interested in reading make sure to be on the lookout.
