“Also reviewed on my blog, the Vintage Bookworm. (http://www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com)
Zombie Queen of Newbury High was really good. It wasn't the best zombie book I've read, but it was really pretty fun to read.
It's a very quick read, I finished it in one day (Which is hard for me to do nowadays with my son!). The writing was pretty good, I will definitely be reading more from Ashby sometime soon, hopefully. I kind of wish there was a sequel to this book because I want to know more about Mia and Chase, but I know that probably won't happen. Boo!
I absolutely LOVED Chase, I was rooting for him throughout the whole book! And ah, Candice. You gotta love her hypochondriac craziness; she's hilarious! I'd so get along with her if she was my best friend. =) Didn't really like much of the other characters, which doesn't completely matter since they weren't the main ones or anything. If that makes sense.
Every time I thought. "Woohoo! They've figured it out!" something else happened and it threw that thought away. I saw a few parts coming, but not all of them. Which was good. Sometimes people think that if you throw some sort of paranormal element, or creature, into a novel it has to be all serious. Don't get me wrong, though, I love a lot of the serious ones, but it is refreshing to read one that is just plain fun and not so serious. I mean, they are put into a crisis, but they still kind of have fun with it.
Overall, it was a great read. I would recommend it to zombie fans, it's definitely another new take on zombies. But it wasn't a favorite. But I will remember it.”
“It was very fast. I was bothered by the fact that the main character Mia did not once question anyone's strange behavior (ie. her friend bringing her to a witches shop for a love potion, the new boy at her school telling her she turned everyone into zombies, etc.). She took the strange happenings as totally normal. Mia was a very shallow character and a lot of the other characters were two dimensional and annoying. Not my favorite book but not the worst paranormal romance I've read. ”AmK wrote this review Wednesday, June 29, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
