Week 9 Review: Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know Of)

From Goodreads:
The world is Cassie Fremont's playground. Her face is on the cover of every newspaper. She has no homework, no curfew, and no credit limit, and she spends her days traveling the country with her friends, including a boy who would do the chicken dance with death to make her smile. Life is just about perfect—except that those newspaper headlines are about her bludgeoning her crush to death with a paintball gun, she has to fight ravenous walking corpses every time she steps outside, and one of her friends is still missing, trapped somewhere in the distant, practically impassable wreckage of Manhattan. 

Still, Cassie's an optimist, more prone to hysterical laughter than hysterical tears, and she'd rather fight a corpse than be one. She'll never leave a friend stranded when she can simply take her road trip to impossible new places, even if getting there means admitting to that boy that she might love him as more than her personal jester. Skillfully blending effective horror with unexpected humor, this diary-style novel is a fast-paced and heartwarming read.

My Review:
Loved reading this book! It was hilarious and awesome! It wasn't what I expected, but it was so much better! I mean, I thought that she was going to be made famous by being a slayer, followed by a camera, but yeah, society crumbled too fast for that!

Cassie was brutally honest in this book, she didn't omit things that she'd rather not share, even when it was hard. She wrote it out, and kudos to her for that! She was also very funny! I loved the banter that she had with her friends and the way that she narrated things!

Books dealing with a zombie apocalypse aren't the common, but they aren't rare, either. And yeah, this take was made most original by Cassie. This was more of a story about her and her friends on their journey across the country with a backdrop of zombie apocalypse then anything!

This is the story of how Cassie discovers her love. She's been best friends with him for a long time, and they would've gotten their eventually, but with the apocalypse and their friend's death, speeds things up. and I loved them together!

Yeah, really enjoyed this book, it was just spectacular and hilarious!
