Lissa's Review: My Life as a White Trash Zombie (White Trash Zombie #1) by Diana Rowland
REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: Audible Studios RELEASED: July 3, 2012 GENRE: paranormal, fantasy LENGTH: 9 hours and 5 minutes FORMAT: ebook, paperback, audible
Angel Crawford is a loser.
Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.
That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue—and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.
Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey—just when she's hungriest!
Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat.
Literally. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
“A day without brains is a day without sunshine.” I loved this book! Thank goodness there's like 6 more books? Angel is a Zombie. How this happened she really doesn’t know. I loved the narrator of the story. The whole southern twang in her voice, it was awesome. This was gross at times, totally hilarious and even the gross parts were hilarious. If that makes sense? Angel has had a pretty rough life before she became a Zombie. So you can only guess what she has to navigate all the way through this thing. I loved how there was a mystery surrounding the.m Something is going down and you can feel the eeriness of it. Diana is such an excellent writer. I wanted to read another series by her but my other co-creator of the blog loves her. So I jumped to the Zombie one. Because I love Zombies. So it totally makes sense. Rowland takes the whole concept of Zombies to another level. Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars.
