Maddy Swift is just a normal girl—a high school junior surviving class with her best friend and hoping the yummy new kid, Stamp, will ask her out. When he finally does, her whole life changes.
Sneaking out to meet Stamp at a party one rainy night, Maddy is struck by lightning. After awakening, she feels lucky to be alive. Over time, however, Maddy realizes that she’s become the thing she and everyone else fear most: the living dead.
With no heartbeat and no breath in her lungs, Maddy must learn how to survive as a zombie. Turns out there’s a lot more to it than shuffling around 24/7 growling, “Brains.” Needing an afterlife makeover is only the beginning of her problems. As Barracuda Bay High faces zombie Armageddon, Maddy must summon all of her strength to protect what matters most—just as soon as she figures out exactly what that is.
I have had Zombies Don’t Cry on my Kindle App for who knows how long. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to read it but oh well better late than never. Right? Well, I don’t have much experience with Zombie books. Honestly, I think my list of zombies books read consists of one title, Warm Bodies. I never thought Zombie books would be my thing. I’m all about the Romance in my books. Sure give me some action as well but maybe lets just put a restriction on the blood and gore. I know, its probably not a true zombie book without it but I was a little apprehensive to start Zombies Don’t Cry. Exactly how graphic was it going to be? It wasn’t bad at all thank goodness.
I quite enjoyed reading Maddy’s transition from normal teen to brain eating zombie. What was it going to mean for her to be a zombie? Was she randomly going to try to bite a chunk out of her family, friends, or the unsuspecting student in the hallway? Hmm… why not go find out?
“It’s all in here,”… I glance briefly at the title: The Guide to the Proper Care and Feeding of Zombies, 24th Edition.Oh, great. Even when you’re dead, you get homework.
Reading about what is happening with Maddy was hilarious. Maddy is one funny chick and I loved her attitude. I wasn’t a fan of her bestie or choice in guys but oh well. I did however love the new people she develops relationships with. 5 stars for the humor and a few awesome characters. However, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the end. Maddy’s decisions just did not sit well with me. I will definitely be picking up the next one some day.
