Waiting on Wednesday (3)--Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby


Okay, so I have a thing for Zombies. I love zombie movies, zombie books, Rob Zombie...it's a whole thing I've got going on. I can't explain it. Maybe it started with Dawn of the Dead (original or remake, take your pick), or maybe I just think that the dead rising is something that just might happen some day and I want to be prepared.


Needless to say, I am excited about this new book coming out Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby. It looks great. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy, but apparently I will have to wait to get my hands on a copy. Unless some wonderful publisher wants to send one my way...hint, hint. Okay here's the description:



Quiet, unpopular, non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. She is dating super hot football god Rob, and he actually likes her and asked her to prom! Enter Samantha—cheerleading goddess and miss popularity— who starts making a move for Rob. With prom in a few days, Mia needs to act fast. So she turns to her best friend, Candice, and decides to do a love spell on Rob. Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus onto her whole class, making herself their leader! At first she is flattered that everyone is treating her like a queen. But then zombie hunter hottie Chase explains they are actually fattening her up, because in a few days, Mia will be the first course in their new diet. She’s sure she and Chase can figure something out, but she suggests that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy.


Can't wait. See you next time.


By the way, I have to thank Jill over at http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com/ for creating Waiting on Wednesday. I love seeing what everyone else is looking forward to and adding those books to my ever-growing list.

  1. I could NOT get through the original Dawn of the Dead movie. All that fake blood freaked me out somehow. I didn't mind the remake though. Go figure.

  3. Hey Lenore,
    I really do love the remake of Dawn. Don't let the Zombie purists hear me say that though. I think fast zombies are way scarier.
