Waiting on Wednesday (3)

October 27, 2010

First of all, I would like to thank Jill for hosting WoW every week! To check out other participating blogs and to sign up yourself, head on over to Breaking the Spine!

This week, I chose Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris! I have never read a zombie book before, but I can’t wait to dip my toes into the genre with this debut! It sounds amazing and I’m certain many readers will love it!

Someone’s been a very bad zombie.

Super-smartie Kate Grable gets to play doctor, helping out her high school football team. Not only will the experience look good on her college apps, she gets to be thisclose to her quarterback crush, Aaron. Then something disturbing happens. Kate finds out that the coach has given the team steroids. Except . . . the vials she finds don’t exactly contain steroids. Whatever’s in them is turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless, flesh-eating . . . zombies.

Unless she finds an antidote, no one is safe. Not Aaron, not Kate’s brother, not her best friend . . . not even Kate . . .

It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.

    The blurb on this one is great. Definitely triggers interest. I’ve only read one or two zombie books myself. Good pick!

    Love the cover but it doesn’t seem to go with the blurb at all. I hope you enjoy this one. My WoW is Across the Universe by Beth Revis. Happy reading while you wait!
