Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby

Zombie Queen of Newbury HighQuiet, unpopular, non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. She is dating super hot football god Rob, and he actually likes her and asked her to prom! Enter Samantha - cheerleading goddess and miss popularity - who starts making a move for Rob. With prom in a few days, Mia needs to act fast. So she turns to her best friend, Candice, and decides to do a love spell on Rob. Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus onto her whole class, making herself their leader! At first she is flattered that everyone is treating her like a queen. But then zombie hunter hottie Chase explains they are actually fattening her up, because in a few days, Mia will be the first course in their new diet. She's sure she and Chase can figure something out, but she suggests that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy. (courtesy of Amazon)

Ok, this book had a catchy title, and then I was intrigued.  I had heard about Amanda Ashby off and on, so I said, let's give it a go. 

What a cute book!  It definitely is a short, quick book.  It's a fun read where Ashby totally reps the vampires.  I love how everyone gives Mia junk food, and fills her locker.  I think that it's classic teen, where Mia is so wrapped up in her boyfriend perhaps liking someone else, she turns the whole class to zombies. 

I was smiling most of the book, and it's definitely for the young reader, but as an adult, I thought it was humorous and well written, and it's nice to have a good giggle some times :)

  1. This book was fast-paced and fun. I'm a vampire girl myself, and have never read any zombie books before, so this was a good place to start.
