Book Review: My Life As a White Trash Zombie

My Life As a White Trash Zombie (White Trash Zombie, #1)My Life As a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I heard that the zombie is the main character and the “good-guy” of this book, I knew I had to read it. I’ve never heard of a book with a zombie good-guy before! And just look at the cover – how could I resist?

Angel lives with her alcoholic dad in Southern Louisiana. She’s a pill junkie and a high-school dropout who can’t hold a job. In other words, a loser. One day, she wakes up in the hospital after overdosing. She remembers being in a terrible car crash but she mysteriously has no injuries. A note is delivered to her hospital room informing her that a job at the county morgue is waiting for her when she’s released. How convenient now that she has an inexplicable craving for brains. Unfortunately, there is a serial killer on the loose who decapitates his victims.

This book was so fun and original – I loved it. It has two mysteries to solve: 1)Who turned Angel into a zombie? and 2)Who is the serial killer? I couldn’t figure out either mystery, the author definitely kept me guessing. There is also just the slightest hint of a romance thrown in as well. Angel is a great character. She has her flaws (obviously) but she is so likable, I was rooting for her to turn her life around.

After finishing My Life As A White Trash Zombie, I was delighted to learn that it’s the first book in a series. The next book is called Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues and will be released on July 3.
