Warm Bodies Book Review

 Title: Warm Bodies

Author: Isaac Marion

Pages: 239

Rating: 4.75/5

The first time I ever heard about this book was back when the movie came out in 2013. When I watched the movie I absolutely fell in love with it and two years later it remains one of–if not my favorite–movie of all time.

So, when I heard there was a book I instantly bought it and I just got to it this year.

I decided to read it near Halloween and I’m so glad I did!

This book follows a zombie named R who ends up falling in love with a human girl named Julie. It’s such an original idea and it was executed flawlessly in my opinion. Marion’s writing style in this book is very interesting and it adds a lot to the plot.

The book was a bit different than the movie but overall, the feeling was pretty much the same. I loved getting inside of R’s brain (no pun intended) and I really enjoyed his perspective. If you have seen the movie, there are a lot of extra scenes that weren’t in the movie that are really enjoyable!

This is definitely a more mature read so I would recommend it to 15 and up.

Overall, if you enjoyed the movie you’ll still enjoy this book just as much! And, if you haven’t seen the movie you’ll also enjoy this heartwarming Halloween read!

Okay it was very hard to choose a song for this book because I’m in love with the movie soundtrack and I had to try really hard not to choose one of those songs so…

My song choice for Warm Bodies is:

That awkward moment when I realize that I chose a song that’s in the trailer…I tried.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell Book Review

Title: Fangirl

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Pages: 438

Rating: 5/5

This book has been super popular among readers everywhere and I finally decided to pick it up!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is an extremely relatable novel about a fanfiction writer named Cath who is just starting college along with her twin sister Wren.

I heavily enjoyed reading this book and I think everybody can find something to relate to in it which is why it is such a fun and enjoyable read.

Throughout this novel there are snippets of the fanfiction Cath writes which also adds some interest for the reader. (The story the fanfiction is based on is the equivalent of Harry Potter in this world.)

Overall this was a very enjoyable read and I highly recommend reading it if you haven’t already.

I’m going to start adding a song to each review that reminds me of the book because I love music and I think that this will add another way for you to get the feel of the book in song form and also I can recommend some good music in the process! (if that makes any sense).

My song choice for Fangirl is: Book Club by Arkells
