Bad Taste in Boys (Kate Grable #1) - Carrie Harris I used to think anyone over the age of three who went by the name Kiki deserved to be drawn and quartered with a spork.I’m with you on that sistah! But let me rephrase it a little bit.I always think that anyone over the age of sixteen who writes a boring book about zombie fighting teenage geeks deserves to be drawn and quartered with a sledgehammer.Much better, isn’t it?So, what is Bad Taste in Boys all about? Geeks gone wild. With zombies. I love zombies!Every highschool geeky girl’s dream is to have her long-time crush save her from a stampede of flesh eating black puking stinky slimy zombies. Pretty cool, right?Yep.. Pretty cool.. The whole story started with a silly idea. I love silly ideas. The best things in the world come from silly ideas. Like rainbow cotton candy, gay unicorns, pink cookie monsters, and my personal favorite, skull shaped man eating trees. Bad Taste in Boys is.. let’s say not good enough to fit in that category.Kate, our dearest heroine, is the newest weapon the US Government has to offer. She’s a genius who single-handedly created a cure for the zombie apocalypse! Or almost single-handedly. But that’s beside the point! Her magnificent brain is America’s newest weapon against zombie terrorism! Those highschool zombie jocks don’t stand a chance! And speaking of zombie jocks, they’re pretty popular in YAs, aren’t they? It’s weird that only these undersized teenage boys and girls get to be zombies and not, let’s say, wrestlers, ninjas, giants or mass murderers. And the cure being just a simple injection is also awesome, isn’t it? Just… freaking awesome..Back to my point. This book sucks. It’s not a one-star sucking, but a two-star one. I admit it had some decent moments but the rest was a total borefest. Too bad the author seems like a cool person. I mean she used to dissect brains! How awesome is that??
