Waiting on Wednesday - 8

I'm waiting for...

I Kissed A Zombie, And I Liked It
by Adam Selzer

Release Date: January 26, 2010

- because I saw this at YA Book Releases last week. I was going to wait until September Zombies Week to mention this upcoming release but was too excited. Every time I see the title I can't help but sing the I Kissed A Girl song by Katy Perry - don't think cherry chapstick would help with zombie kisses though.

Description from publisher's site:
Algonquin “Ali” Rhodes, the high school newspaper’s music critic, meets an intriguing singer, Doug, while reviewing a gig. He’s a weird-looking guy—goth, but he seems sincere about it, like maybe he was into it back before it was cool. She introduces herself after the set, asking if he lives in Cornersville, and he replies, in his slow, quiet murmur, “Well, I don’t really live there, exactly. . . .”

When Ali and Doug start dating, Ali is falling so hard she doesn’t notice a few odd signs: he never changes clothes, his head is a funny shape, and he says practically nothing out loud. Finally Marie, the school paper’s fashion editor, points out the obvious: Doug isn’t just a really sincere goth. He’s a zombie. Horrified that her feelings could have allowed her to overlook such a flaw, Ali breaks up with Doug, but learns that zombies are awfully hard to get rid of—at the same time she learns that vampires, a group as tightly-knit as the mafia, don’t think much of music critics who make fun of vampires in reviews. . . .

Zombie alert:

Zombie walk: July 23, 2009

This year's attendees of the San Diego Comic Con are being treated to previews of the upcoming movie Zombieland which is going to be released in October. Attendees and anyone interested can join the walk. The really neat thing is that the attendees can go to the Sony Pictures booth at the comic con and get zombiefied by professional makeup artists for the event for free.

*sigh* wish I were at the con this year.
