Zombie Blondes

Author: Brian James
Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy- Paranormal
Reading Level: Young Adult

The first time I read about Zombie Blondes was through reviews by The Book Smugglers and Becky’s Book Reviews. Shortly after, I found the book at Kinokuniya with a 20% off discount on the book so I decided to get myself a copy.

Zombie Blondes is about Hannah, a teenage girl who moves from one town to another every time her father faces financial difficulties. Moving so many times has made her sort of an expert in identifying who the cool crowd is in her new school. Like any teenage girl, she wants to be part of the cool, popular crowd (who happen to be cheerleaders of course) but this time she’s been given an opportunity to join them… the only thing is the cool chicks are zombies!

The plot was predictable; teenager moves into new town and wants to be part of popular group the only difference is there’s zombies involved. I didn’t really enjoy the book but I did like how it picked up towards the end and I also liked the ending. In between, it was really just an okay read. The only other problem I had with the book was that there was no explanation on how the town’s occupants became zombies so I wish the author would have elaborated a bit more on that.

Overall, Zombie Blondes is an easy read, nothing complicated, a bit predictable but still enjoyable.

Ps- I forgot to mention, I absolutely love the book cover.

I actually picked this up at the library last week but ended leaving it. I had about 15 books in my hands at the time and felt it could wait till my next visit. Sounds like a cool concept. I think I'll read just to see how I feel about it. I, like you, also fell for that neato cover.
