Book Review: Love And Decay by Rachel Higginson


Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

Reagan said goodbye to love when she was forced to run her high school boyfriend over with her mom’s car just to keep him from eating her for dinner. Now, two years later, and in need of a serious shower, she’s just over the entire concept of a soul mate- or really, any kind of mate.

Well, mostly anyway. When she runs- literally- into a group of boys holed up in a relative utopia of peanut butter and bottled water, maybe all hope in the love department is not lost.

But at the end of the world, nothing can be simple. And with a horde of Zombies after her, Reagan is going to have to schedule falling in love between hunting and surviving. Hopefully she can last long enough find out if true love can still exist when everything else has started to fall apart.

Love and Decay, Episode One, the first in a novella series in a Dystopian Romance about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with.


My Review. 
O.M.G This book took bad to a whole new level for me and it nearly made me throw my Kobo through my TV which would have been a disaster for my future entertainments. So I restrained myself. Just.

Meet Dipsy and Ditzy...I mean Reagan and Haley, our heroines. How two people this dumb survived two minutes of the zombie apocalypse is a mystery to me. They appear clueless, dopey and useless from page one, and going hunting in the dark department store so close to the time the zombies are most active pretty much says it all.

So, they are in the department store, and normal people would be filling up backpacks with food, weapons and useful crap but not this pair who decide to raid the makeup counter for as much eyeliner as they can grab! Their way of thinking is that just because the world has gone to hell is no reason to let yourself look ugly. I swear I wanted to climb in the book and eat them myself.

"I started swiping handfuls of products into my bag, not caring about color or usefulness. This was what Haley and I called the Grab and Go"

Try grabbing weapons and food, doughball. Then they get captured by the guys with guns and instead of cacking themselves like normal people, they start to giggle and say that they know the guys won't kill them.

"“But you’re not going to shoot us,” Haley argued.
“I’m not?”
“We’re hot. You’ll at least rape us first,” she explained on a hysterical giggle.
“At least,” I echoed, my laughter bouncing off the floor. “Just don’t give us herpes.

Seriously WTF is wrong with these stupid bitches? Is this supposed to be really funny coz I just wanted to strangle them. I'm not sure why the author decided to use two of the worst characters I have ever read in my life to try to get people to continue reading the series. This was the point in the book where I wasn't interested in even trying to read on, I hated it that much. Set a zombie on these dumb cows and let their lack of brains be eaten.

This book was a complete waste of time and I don't recommend it to ANYONE, ever. I won't be reading anything else by this author.
