Book Review
As you may already know, I love horror stories, especially zombie books. I don't want to talk about the book title, because if I start, I'm pretty sure I won't stop rambling about how much I love this name. "Apocalipstic" "Apocalistic" "Apocalipstic"
Back to the review, this is such a good zombie book. I loved how much "teenager" the main character was. And of course we have a love triangle (duh), and still I haven't decided which team I am: "Team Caleb" or "Team Quentin" . My favorite were the battle scenes (duh! I'm a horror goddess!) Some people of the survival group are not completely human, and they are called the "other". This book feels so real. People judge each-other, even though the world is under a Zombie Attack! I can only say that this was such a good horror romance with a sense of reality smashed together with zombies". If you don't understand what I have said, don't worry at all,because I don't either!
I can only say "Good Job Lisa Acerbo! Five stars! FIVE STARS!!!

  1. Thanks for being part of my book tour and the review. Today would be a good day to discuss romance horror stories (other than the zombie apocalypse). I wonder if people would celebrate Valentines Day after zombies rise?
