My Zombie Valentine

Synopsis (Goodreads)

Tired of boyfriends who drain you dry? Sick of guys who stay out all night howling at the moon? You can do better. Some men want you not only for your body, but your brains. Especially your brains.
It's true! There are men out there who care--early-rising, down-to-earth, indefatigable men who'll follow you for miles. They'll take the time to surprise you, over and over. One sniff of that perfume, and you'll have to use a shotgun to fight them off. And then, once you get together, all they want is to share a nice meal. And another. And another.

Romeo and Juliet, eat your hearts out.

My Take


I picked up this book at the local Wal-Mart because it was $1.99, and I seen Kate MacAlister's name as one of the contributing authors. I have been planning to read her Dark Ones series for a while now, but just haven't gotten around to it. 


This is a book of 4 short, zombie-toned stories. The first story, Bring Out Your Dead (Kate MacAlister) was enjoyable. The story contains characters from her Dark Ones series. Although I haven't yet read this series, I didn't feel lost. The zombies were just hilarious. I will definitely be reading the Dark Ones series in the future.


The second story, Gentlemen Prefer Voodoo, was enjoyable as well. Amie (practices voodoo and owns a voodoo type shop) had lived a life without true love. She decides to do a spell to bring her one true love to her and she got more than what she bargains for; she answers a knock at her door to find she's raised a zombie claiming to be her true love!


The third story, Zombiewood--Confidential, wasn't as good as the two previous stories. It revolves around the making of a zombie movie on a remote island. Lets just say the zombie extras start having cravings for brains. 


The last story, Every Part of You, wasn't bad, but it was a bit weird. Ever heard of sugar-craving zombies in LA? It's not your typical zombie themed story. 


Overall, this book is an enjoyable weekend read, or just for a rainy day.
