White Trash Zombie Apocalypse by Diana Rowland (Spoilers Abound)

Standard

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse (White Trash Zombie, #3)White Trash Zombie Apocalypse by Diana Rowland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This might very well be my favourite book of the series thus far, and July can’t come soon enough.

The thing I liked about this book was how much more descriptive it was than the previous too, and getting to delve in a little more of what it is to be a zombie in this world, depending on what side they fall on.

Angel’s preparation for the GED was amazing, and wonderful to see, as she began building her self confidence with the unlikely help of Nick, who really flourished as a character.

The flood was absolutely heart breaking and Angel’s reactions to it, especially when she had to explain her house was gone were heartbreaking.

Finally there was some growth with Marcus, and I hope that their relationship can hold true. Though the developments between her and Phillip were definitely interesting.

This book was another fun read, and I loved the chaotic feel to parts of it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Slight Spoilers

I devoured this book in a matter of hours, just as Angel would devour brains. Angel is gaining her footing here and in some ways doing better and worse than ever.

The pacing on this book is excellent, allowing you to enjoy every moment. Angel’s paranoia is palpable, and the ever present danger of a bigger, wider zombie world is amazing. I really appreciated the way the characters are growing in this book, even as they deal with the issues of being zombies. Though Marcus seems to grow the least.

I found it interesting to learn how Ed had been manipulated and I can’t help but like Marcus’ uncle.

The zombification process was done perfectly though, though I found Angel’s inner dialogue to be rather comedic.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t know what it was I was expecting when I started reading this book, I just know that I didn’t expect to like it so much, or love the character of Angel but I do.

This book is borderline ridiculous, but in the best possible way and there is nothing wrong with that. Zombie folklore is turned on its head, and the result is something that is crazy amusing. The characters are rich, and lovely and I can’t help but love each of them.

It’s a quick, light read and definitely tons of fun.

Haunted (Women of the Otherworld, #5)Haunted by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this book to be quite good, having loved the snippets of Eve seen previous to this, not necessarily because I thought she was someone who was inherently good but because she was a mystery. This was an excellent look into who Eve was before she died, and who she became after.

It was great to see that sense of evolution of her, and I loved the mythos behind the nix.

Industrial Magic (Women of the Otherworld, #4)Industrial Magic by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my favourite book from the series thus far, which is interesting to me considering Paige was actually my least favourite of the female characters so far. I have a leaning toward Elena, but with this book I certainly like Paige a whole lot more. This book made me more fascinated with the cabals, and while I didn’t get all the answers I wanted I really did love the more in depth look.

I actually really enjoyed this book in spite of not liking Paige all that much originally. I really did feel for her character and the trials she was going through, both literally and figuratively in this novel. Lucas is just about one of my favourite characters introduced in this series. These books a really well written, and detailed without it being a little too much.

Stolen (Women of the Otherworld, #2)Stolen by Kelley Armstrong
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book a lot.

There were parts of it however which seemed to drag on for me, perhaps due to just a little too much detail for my appetite.

I found myself wanting more action, but that does not mean the writing is bad. It’s actually rather fantastic, and as always I am amused to see parts of Canada mentioned as well as the travel between two countries. I did also find the new characters rather interesting, but found myself wanting more of Clay, Jeremy and Elena.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I didn’t like Mitch in the first book, so I was displeased to see him back in this one. H

e is a little too possessive of a character and not in a good way. Rather, he makes me nervous for what his attitude could be if he were with a human woman.

The mystery of what happened to him was quite good and I really did enjoy learning more about how Max had become the monster he was. But this book was lacking in so many other spaces, the characters remain unfulfilled it seems, and the nature of their relationship has left me shaking my head in disappointment.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While I did enjoy this novel it was actually a re-read for me, and I was disappointed in what I’d remembered from the novel versus what was actually there.

The relationship between Mitch and Deirdre to me is barely tolerable, due to the way he acts around her. It comes across as so possessive and perhaps that is supposed to be her draw on him due to her supernatural nature but instead it left me feeling nervous.

While not badly written, the book could’ve used a little more fleshing out, although I did enjoy reading about vampires written as monsters.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t know what really possessed me to read this book.

I had watched the TV show when it had been on in the past and I suppose I had a hankering for a vampire novel that was most certainly not Twilight.

The main characters in this book are interesting, from Vicki who is stubborn, verging on annoying with how little she allows herself to be helped to Henry, a monster who wants to be anything but. I really did enjoy this novel, but anyone who is reading it expecting something massively detailed and classically written would be disappointed.

It’s a fun ride, and that’s what some novels are meant to be.
