BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!! ISAAC MARION’S LATEST ZOMBIE LOVE STORY ALERT!!!! THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SEQUEL IS LIVE!!
<— Remember the first one? The zombie that still had feelings, and a certain amount of consciousness and befriends a human girl? And what had me the most interested was not that it was a love story during a zombie apocalypse. Nope. No. I mean, an actual LOVE STORY between a human girl, and a zombie. *gasp*!!! I was SO IN!!! Gah! I loved the movie so I can imagine just how much better the book is. And lucky me, I have it!! I should marathon read these.
Tanya: I cannot believe u haven’t read Warm Bodies yet Maryse!!!! I read it when it very first came out because it was highly recommended by Stephanie Meyer.
Megan: I just watched Warm Bodies last night and Nicholas Hoult was really cute (even as a zombie).
Liz: I’ve had discussions with male friends about vampires vs. zombies – they don’t understand how anything “dead” could be sexy. I’ve always told them the biggest difference between vampires and zombies is “decomposition.” I didn’t think I’d enjoy a zombie romance – then I discovered Dearly, Departed: A Zombie Novel by Lia Habel. I think the only reason I gave it a try was because it’s a steampunk novel, but I’m glad I did because once I got past the “eww” factor, the love story itself was compelling. I’ll be interested in reading your review of Warm Bodies.
P.S. Here’s a silly post I wrote back when I heard there was a zombie “LOVE” story in existence.
About book #1:
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.
R is having a no-life crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he’d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization.
And then he meets a girl.
First as his captive, then his reluctant house guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn’t want to eat this girl—although she looks delicious—he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight.
