Review #113: Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris

Salutations friends! Have another review for y'all tonight. 

Bad Taste in Boys is the first book in the Kate Grable series by Carrie Harris. Goodreads says:

Someone's been a very bad zombie.
Kate Grable is horrified to find out that the football coach has given the team steroids. Worse yet, the steroids are having an unexpected effect, turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless flesh-eating zombies. No one is safe--not her cute crush Aaron, not her dorky brother, Jonah . . . not even Kate! She's got to find an antidote--before her entire high school ends up eating each other. So Kate, her best girlfriend, Rocky, and Aaron stage a frantic battle to save their town  . . . and stay hormonally human.

I don't know, I just didn't like this book. It didn't bode well at all. Kate's voice was too unbelievable for me. I didn't think it was that great, and by extension Kate herself was not very relatable. I thought she was a bit of a control freak, acting a bit superior to her classmates, the coach, etc. The writing itself wasn't great either. Oh well. :(

So did it live up to the hype? No, not at all.
I'll next be reviewing Legend by Marie Lu. 

Until next time, viva la literature!
