The book I started with is I Kissed a Zombie, and I Liked It. The plot sounded cute and interesting. Vampires, zombies and werewolves are real in Alley Rhodes's world. Only they aren't anything like the myths say. Alley could really care less. She'll leave dating post-humans to the idiots. One night, she goes to cover a local band for the school newspaper and mets Doug. His soft, crooning voice captivates her. She can tell he's a real goth and not a wanna-be like most of her classmates. They start dating and despite a few odd quirks Doug seems pretty normal. Unfortunately, he's a zombie. How did Alley miss that fact? And what does she do now?
Over all, it was a cute story about a girl finding her first love and the inner turmoil it puts us females through. The supernatural theme added to the turmoil. What I didn't expect was the ending. I did not see that coming and it made me cry. The ending fit, but I wasn't expecting it. It was a nice twist too from the usual way paranormal YAs end. Lastly, I have to give the author two props: One for writing a story in present tense that didn't throw me off and two for having a gay character who wasn't cookie cutter cliche.
