Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris

Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Fun, quirky and witty are all words I would use to describe Bad Taste in Boys! Carrie Harris makes a science geek the lovable "it girl" everyone will want to know. Kate is the student trainer for the football team, science expert and has dreams of being a doctor and is trying to work up the courage to speak to the quarterback. While on routine grunt work for the coach Kate discovers he may be injecting the team with steroids.

Even if the football team sucks and they only see her as a nerd she won't stand for illegal, unsafe steroid use. Before Kate can even get a plan into action or notify someone Coach injects a player and things go terribly wrong. The player dies even though Kate tries, unsuccessfully, to resuscitate him. But just when she feels she's failed he suddenly grabs her butt! What the !?!?!/

This is where you can cue the zombie music, only zombies aren't real....right? Kate tries to gather evidence, like any great scientist would do, on how this could've happened and figure out how to stop an outbreak from happening by finding a cure and oh yeah try not to turn into a zombie herself in the process! I adore this book! Kate reminds me a little of Lily from Dash and Lily with the sass of Evie from Paranormalcy. I love every word of every page and can't wait for more from Carrie Harris.

Review: Dead Rules

Dead Rules by Randy Russell

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Dead Rules by Randy Russell is the most unexpected 5 star book I have read this summer! Not only is the cover to die for, but the witty and original story is so hard to put down that I almost considered pulling over during rush hour to finish the last few chapters.

In Dead Rules Jana Webster finds out that when you die instead of a fancy afterlife you go to a place called Dead School. Everyone in Dead School is exactly as they were the moment they died and they go to Dead School to learn about themselves. As if life wasn’t hard enough now you spend your afterlife in school. Kids in Dead School are separated into groups the Sliders, who did something wrong when they died and the Risers, who were not at fault when they died. There are also the Virgins who are almost angel like and the Shades, who committed suicide. Jana arrives at Dead School as a Riser and it takes her a bit to adjust to Dead School and she's also certain that once her boyfriend realizes they can still be together he will soon join her. Wouldn’t your high school boyfriend want to die to spend eternity with you?

Jana decides not to wait for her boyfriend Michael to die and decides that she has to kill him so he can be with her. Only Jana can’t manifest, into a ghost, as a Riser and begins her path to becoming a Slider. This is both funny and dangerous. Her Riser friends try to talk her out of it, but she is determined, and with the help of some Sliders she might just pull it off. Only no plan ever goes off without a hitch, while Jana is dead set that Michael is her soul mate she misses out on Mars the tremendously hot Slider right in front of her. He is hot, hot, and hot. Ok I know I said hot three times, but you really need to read this book and see why for yourself.

Nothing I say will justify just how wonderful, fresh, funny, and downright fantastic this book is so run out and get a copy. Dead Rules doesn't have a cliffhanger ending, but I felt like there might be a window for either a second book or a companion, if so I would love that!

Dead Rules is Randy Russell’s debut YA novel and out now. I want to thank Randy for sending a review copy in exchange for an honest review. To say thanks and to show how much I loved this book I am giving away a finished copy.
