My Feelings:

Someone's been a very bad zombie.

Kate Grable is horrified to find out that the football coach has given the team steroids. Worse yet, the steroids are having an unexpected effect, turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless flesh-eating zombies. No one is safe--not her cute crush Aaron, not her dorky brother, Jonah . . . not even Kate!

She's got to find an antidote--before her entire high school ends up eating each other. So Kate, her best girlfriend, Rocky, and Aaron stage a frantic battle to save their town. . . and stay hormonally human

My Review:
I started reading this book when I was going to work and finished it while I was travelling back home. Bad Taste in Boys is a super hilarious, quick and quirky read. I loved it and I hope that Carrie Harris is going to write more of these fabulous books.

Let’s say it out straight, Kate Grable is a nerd. Big time and she’s proud of it too. She’s very smart, quirky and just makes these awesome remarks which I thought where laugh out loud funny. I loved the relationship she has with her little brother. It was real and honest.

The plot is awesome. Yes, it is. The action starts right away and it’s such a quick read. The zombies where scary and disgusting. I thought Kate was very brave for fighting them alone. Very brave! There wasn’t really a well developed romance, but because the romance wasn’t a big part of the story I didn’t mind.

I’m not sure if this is part of a series, but if it is, I’m going to pick up the sequel and hope it’s as badass as Bad Taste in Boys.

Zombies? Lol, I hate and like those. They do make good characters in books, and I am glad it all worked so well here

I've heard that this one has a lot of humor. Plus, now I know she is a proud nerd? I so need to read this.

Haven't read a funny book in a while now and although this has zombies (I'
m not a huge zombie fan), it sounds pretty cool by your review! Glad you enjoyed it :)

Great review! I keep putting off reading this book, but now I'm moving it to the top. I love books that start out quick and fast, dropping you in the action. Plus, I'm a big fan of quirky characters! :)

I met Carrie this summer at her debut party and she is just as hilarious as her writing. She has a second book coming out called Bad Hair Day. I think she called it a companion novel rather than part of a series.

Awesome review! Although this book was a little bit short, it was still awesome to read! Plus, it's really the only paranormal book I have ever read!
