My Zombie Boyfriend by T. Strange
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this book. The wry humor and often deadpan delivery throughout this book had me giggling out loud, and that's always a good thing.
In a nutshell, Edward is a necromancer and medical student who finds a murdered young man and reanimates him. His zombie is a marvel, full of personality, and livelier than most humans, including the reclusive Edward. Kit, as the zombie is named, loves fashion, shopping, cooking, and his kitten, Winston. Kit doesn't remember anything about his former life, and Edward doesn't want to know. Instead, they embark on a life together, finding themselves growing closer. Aside from being a zombie, Kit's just perfect, and Edward gradually begins to relax and think that this might work. After all, even Edward's parents love Kit.
Of course, things are rarely so simple, and when it all goes bottoms up, it's how these unlikely lovers cope that makes this so charming a read. Zombies and romance shouldn't go hand in hand. This book begs to differ, and it's well worth reading for a sweet and sassy journey through the pitfalls of love. This is a wonderful beach read, and I recommend it to anyone who likes romance, fashion, and ducks. Let's not forget the ducks!

- I've been writing since I could first hold a pencil, and by all accounts I didn't limit myself to paper. Walls, tablecloths and the occasional sibling were all fair game, and it shouldn't be surprising to learn that markers were banned in my home with all due haste. Although I now content myself with inconveniencing electrons, the desire to bring the stories in my mind to life hasn't waned. In my spare time, I read, putter in the kitchen, and relax on my terrace or at the lake, weather permitting, with my corgi who strives to be part muse, part food disposal. I'm also addicted to coffee and have a close relationship with my Keurig.
