This week I recieved a couple books from Velvet of vvb32 reads. I won one of them during Zombie Week, and the other she threw in for my reading pleasure. Why? Because Velvet is super sweet and made of awesome!
Book the first:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you'd actually want to read.
I hope y'all don't judge me too harshly for saying this, but that highlighted line totally applies to me. I can't get into the whole old English vibe2, but this was too good to pass up. I love the concept, and I can't wait to start reading it!
Book the Second:
Romy and Michelle's Hight School Reunion meets Night of the Living Dead in this laugh-out-loud debut YA novel by Emmy Award-nominated TV writer E. Van LowePrincipal Taft's 3 Simple Rules for Surviving a Zombie Uprising:
Rule #1: While in the halls, walk slowly and wear a vacant expression on your face. Zombies won't attack other zombies.
Rule #2: Never travel alone. Move in packs. Follow the crowd. Zombies detest blatant displays of individuality.
Rule #3: If a zombie should attack, do not run. Instead, throw raw steak at to him. Zombies love raw meat. This display of kindness will go a long way.
On the night of her middle school graduation, Margot Jean Johnson wrote a high school manifesto detailing her goals for what she was sure would be a most excellent high school career. She and her best friend, Sybil, would be popular and, most important, have boyfriends. Three years later, they haven't accomplished a thing!
Then Margot and Sybil arrive at school one day to find that most of the student body has been turned into flesh-eating zombies. When kooky Principal Taft asks the girls to coexist with the zombies until the end of the semester, they realize that this is the perfect opportunity to live out their high school dreams. All they have to do is stay alive....
I was so excited to see an ARC of Never Slow Dance with a Zombie in my mailbox along with P&P&Z, it was a total surprise and I Happy Danced sporadically for the rest of the day! So far, this is a really fun and cute book, and I'm loving the whole zombie clique angle. I bet that if the world was zombified, people would still remain with their respective cliques and classes, just like E. wrote.
