I Dream of Zombies Paperback – October 28, 2013
|New from||Used from|
I absolutely loved this book- so much so that I had to email the author and let her know the minute I finished the book. It is a light but great read. You have to be pretty darn creative to be able to think of a Zombie Social Worker! If you are looking for a book with blood, guts, and gore- keep looking, this book is NOT for you. However, if you are looking for a cute book about zombies, one that has a little romance involved, then this is the book for you. - Book Loving Hippo
From the Author
I wrote this book to be a humorous take on the typical zombies in pop culture. My friends and I had been talking about the actual logistics of being a zombie. If you are falling apart, as zombies often are, how could you possibly run, let alone have the physical strength to kill other humans? How could they chew through someone's skull to get at a brain if their teeth are falling out? Shouldn't they be protected under the American's with Disabilities Act?
Rose Lee, a character named after the famous stripper, Gypsy Rose Lee, is just trying to get through life after losing her parents to the zombie disease. Her brother, Zane, has also gone missing after a lab "accident" at work.
Several new people come into her life, and after putting up walls around herself after the zombie apocalypse, she may be ready to trust again. She carries hiking boots, a baseball bat, and lethal pepper grenades in the trunk of her car (named Beulah), just in case the people, or zombies, that she meets can't be trusted.

Rose’s commitment to the people doomed to die by zombie-hood is moving. She is a strong woman with a big heart who is not afraid to put her neck on the line. Oh, and there’s a bit of a love story here. It’s woven nicely into the plot and doesn’t detract attention away from the story, rather it’s a welcome respite to the heaviness of Rose’s journey.
The POV switches from first person to third person. The sudden switch in POV’s is jarring and pulled me out of the story a few times. I would have rather seen breaks or given some other kind of warning before it happened.
Overall, I Dream of Zombies is witty, humorous, and the mystery surrounding Leah coupled with the strange goings-on at the local grocery store will keep you turning the page. I recommend this book to anyone who loves zombies and is looking for a quick fun read told within your not-so-typical zombie world.
Rose Lee is a zombie counselor, though she's really more of a social worker. Her job is to help the zombies, a part of the population often misunderstood, ignored, abused, and hurt, siimply because some are losing body parties and often go crazy at the end.
Rose's story is told with humor throughout, and there are some twists and turns throughout the story to keep you going, though a few of the "mysteries" weren't mysteries to me at all.
There are some minor typos and some editing things that did bug me, however (most of the book is told from the first person point of view, but there are occasions when for a sentence or two, it switches to third person).
The book ends with a cliffhanger that really wasn't a surprise to me at all (without giving anything away, this character just kept being mentioned oddly, and there wasn't any point to the character being mentioned, so obviously the author was setting us up for something).
- i received this book as part of a blog tour to read and review and was not paid for my thoughts.

From the beginning you can fully relate to Rose and everything she has to try to put up with. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes Zombies... or anyone who just wants a great book to read over the holidays! Check out my full review: [...]
