Review: My Life As a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

My Life As a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland
Series: White Trash Zombie #1 
Genre: Horror, Borderline YA

Synopsis from goodreads
Angel Crawford is a loser

Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.

That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue—and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.

Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey—just when she's hungriest!

Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat.

My thoughts

I have been pushing this off my reading list every time it appears in my kindle. I am glad that I finmally gave in and read this. I really am. Lemme just say paranormal, UF is an extraordinary world where authors brings new myths, stories, creatures to life that you never thought possible. 

When I hear the word Zombie it's associated with Walking Dead, Evil Dead anything that is mindlessly dead and do not at all have a brain, that works like human more like human brain eater. So Rowland's White Trash Zombie is one of those books that made me think twice about my zombiesist (is that a word?) ways. 

One of the thing that put me off reading this for so long was the cover. I know it's pretty but it's really not how I saw Angel Crawford when I read the book. I can not deny the fact that I do in fact love the cover but it just didn't get me started on the book immediately, so yeahhhh... that's just me =/

I am trying retain myself from flailing around about the book right now but I will say that if you have even an inkling love for zombie anything really, this is the thing to try. 

I give this
