Waiting On Wednesday (21)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"Eat Brains Love" by Jeff Hart

This book is set to be released October 1st, 2013. This is the first in an untitled series.

Two teenage zombies search for brains, love, and answers in this surprisingly romantic and laugh-out-loud funny debut novel with guts.

Jake Stephens was always an average, fly-under-the-radar guy. The kind of guy who would never catch the attention of an insanely popular girl like Amanda Blake--or a psychic teenage government agent like Cass. But one day during lunch, Jake's whole life changed. He and Amanda suddenly locked eyes across the cafeteria, and at the exact same instant, they turned into zombies and devoured half their senior class.

Now Jake definitely has Amanda's attention--as well as Cass's, since she's been sent on a top-secret mission to hunt them down. As Jake and Amanda deal with the existential guilt of eating their best friends, Cass struggles with a growing psychic dilemma of her own--one that will lead the three of them on an epic journey across the country and make them question what it means to truly be alive. Or undead.

Eat, Brains, Love is a heartwarming and bloody blend of romance, deadpan humor, and suspense that fans of Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies will devour. With its irresistibly dry and authentic teen voice, as well as a zombie apocalypse worthy of AMC's The Walking Dead, this irreverent paperback original will leave readers dying for the sequel that's coming in Summer 2014.

I absolutely loved both the book and the movie of Warm Bodies. While reading the synopsis that is the book that immediately came to mind (even before I read the comparison in the synopsis). I think this would be a really fun and light book to read. I love zombies and sometimes the zombie books out right now are just a little too serious and a bit too gorey. Sometimes I want a fun take on one of the most feared creepy-crawly creatures to date. This sounds like it fits that criteria.

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
