Review: Bad Taste In Boys by Carrie Harris

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.

Bad Taste in Boys is a book that I have been wanting to read for many long months. I jumped at the first opportunity to be a part of the tour, and I am so glad that I did! If I could sum this book up in one word, that word would have to be awesome.

Bad Taste in Boys is a cute story about a girl (Kate) who puts it upon herself to find the antidote for the zombie virus that seems to be spreading across the football team. Kate was such an amazing main character. She was smart and funny. Some of the things she said/ thought had me laughing out loud. I love that she was a geek and knew it. I also liked how honest her voice was. Her honesty made her more likable and more realistic.

If you have never read a zombie book before, I would recommend Bad Taste in Boys to be your first. It was a quick read, funny, entertaining, and sometimes it was a bit creepy, but in a good way. There is even a bit of romance thrown in! Yes, there is some gore (it's a zombie book, what did you expect?), but I thought it had just the right amount. Definitely an enjoyable book that I would recommend to anyone.

Rating: 4/5

  1. Hmmm.... this is definitely not normally the type of book I would choose, but you make it sound really interesting. I may have to give it a try!

  3. I'm intrigued! I've never read a zombie book but I've seen a few zombie movies in my time. I just might get this one!
