Review of The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life AND Paranormal Reads Info

Ok, so I’m totally scared of zombies and often avoid reading about them because I inevitably get nightmares. On the other hand, I’ve seen author Jen Naumann’s tweets about this story and was curious enough to forgo my usual rule of avoiding zombies and gave it a go.

I have to say the title captures the tone of this story PERFECTLY. The main character’s voice is strong and clear (always a good draw for me). And her perception of the world going to crap lent a comedy-like vibe to the tale—another thing that I totally dug. To be clear: It wasn’t goofy, stupid comedy. At all. It was the kind of comedy that made the story a blast to read.

Don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of scary parts, heart-wrenching parts, gory parts, and enough action to keep this action junky satisfied.

Plus the ending totally left me begging for a sequel!

All in all, I’d give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Nice job, Jen! I’m a fan! 😉

  1. Great review, Laura! This looks like an awesome book! I loove that title! 🙂

  2. I love zombie stories, but you probably already knew that.

  3. Lisa Gail Green says:

    This book looks right up my alley!! I have to put it on my TBR list! Thanks. 😀

  4. E.Arroyo says:

    I read one zombie book. I think I have to give some a try. =)

  5. My sister would love this. Thanks for the rec!

  6. I’m not a zombie fan, but I loved Generation Dead. As did my teenage son, who also isn’t into zombie books. I love the universal message in the book.

  7. Linda Gray says:

    For me it’s vampires. Found that out looong ago with none other than Anne Rice. No can read vampire books! Nightmare city. This zombie book looks like a good one, though. Great review.

  8. Vicki Tremper says:

    Yeah, I’m not a fan of zombies. I just don’t get it. But I saw a movie trailer last week for a zombie movie that I might just be able to watch (Warm Bodies, I think). Maybe if I can handle that, I can handle Jen’s book.

  9. Lydia Kang says:

    I’m kind of chicken when it comes to horror. Isn’t that wimpy of me? But still, this looks like a great story for zombie fans!

  10. i’ve never read a zombie book…they book might eat me while i read 😀

  11. Leigh Moore says:

    LOL! omg–I’m SO like you w/the zombies. But I’ve seen Jen’s hilariously titled book so many times, It’s totally on my TBR pile. Once I get the next release out and my feet back under me, all I’m doing is reading. That’s the plan anyway!

    Thanks for the great review, Laura! I can totally believe this one’s awesome! ❤

  12. Donna Hole says:
