Warm Bodies by Issac Marion
A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.

R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.

Not just another zombie novel, Warm Bodies is funny, scary, and deeply moving.
I picked this novel up while I was at YAllfest because the author was supposed to be there. He never showed (plane delays I think) but I still got the book. I'd see it around a lot and also heard it was being turned into a movie. So I snagged myself a copy. I will read this one before the movie comes out, I just need to have the time.

What about you? Have you read it? Or what's been sitting on your shelf too long?

  5. I've been wanting to read this one since it came out! It sounds really awesome. I saw they are making a movie based off it. I would be more likely to read the book though.

  6. Looks like an amazing book! And it sounds really good, too! Too bad about the author not being able to get there! And those pictures are creepy! Hope you can read it soon, and happy reading!


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
