Review: Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

When I first read the summary for this book, I was so sure it would be a zombie love story. And it sounded so awesome. And the cover is seriously beautiful.

But I was kind of wrong. The book does not focus on a love story. At least not for the first 60% of it. And that kind of sucked. Was so hoping for an amazing love story. But I did get something else I had hoped for. An great zombie book. Because this is a zombie book. And it is all kinds of awesome.

There is a love story in there though. Just not as much as I wished there would be. Hoping there will be more in the next book :) 

I really liked the plot, and the places, and the characters. I just wasn't entirely happy with the writing. At the beginning I was very happy with the POV switch between Bram and Nora, but then I got annoyed at the other POV's :p But in the end, I ended up liking those too :)

I don't really want to give too much away, but this is a must read. It just wasn't as good as I had hoped. I also felt like the ending was kind of rushed. But I believe this is a series, so I am extremely excited to read about what happens next :)

Goodreads - Buy it

  1. I've heard a bunch about this book but I didn't realize it was a zombie book. I don't think I've read a zombie book yet. I may just have to change that! Have a great weekend :)
