WoW: The Year of the Zombie

by Ann-Katrina

Welcome to another edition of Waiting on Wednesday where I tell you about the book I happen to be lusting after at the moment.

You Are So Undead to Me Cover After last month’s WoW, it seems that 2009 is turning into the year of the zombie because the next book I find myself looking forward to getting my hot little hands on is You Are So Undead to Me by Stacey Jay.

I came across it by chance while browsing Amazon and the cover looked interesting. Then I read the description and decided that I definitely want to see what’s up.

As you may have guessed from the title, this is a book about zombies. But not just any book about zombies, but a Buffy the Vampire Slayer style book about zombies. And Buffy was just so campy and comical that it worked. I’m hoping the same is true of this one.

Q: How many zombies does it take to ruin a social life?
A: Not many.

Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she’s part-time shrink to a whole bunch of semi-dead people with killer issues. All Megan really wants is to go to homecoming, but when you’re trailed by a bunch of slobbering corpses whenever you leave the house, it’s kinda hard to score a date. Let’s just say Megan’s love life could use some major resuscitation.

Megan’s convinced her life can’t get any worse – until someone in school starts using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into scary, hardcore flesh-eating Zombies. Now it’s up to Megan to stop the Zombie apocalypse. Her life – and more importantly, the homecoming dance – depends on it.

Luckily I will not need to wait much longer because it’s due out next week and before then, you can read an excerpt of it online. (Tip: Since reading on a dark background is difficult for me, I just copied the text into Notepad. If it bugs you too, you may want to try that.)

    This sounds like quite a fun book. You’ve got to love a zombie book that starts out with, “So what are you wearing, the dress or the butt jeans?”!
