Warm Bodies - Isaac Marion More of my reviews at The Cozy Reading Corner

I actually heard about this book back when it was published in 2011. There was a lot of hype surrounding it, so I checked it out on Goodreads and marked it to-read, knowing that I would probably never read it. “Why?” You might ask. Because, for some unknown reason, I have an issue with zombie-human relationships. I think it’s gross and unrealistic, because how can a relationship like that work out? They’re DEAD. And not like, vampire dead, I mean like dead DEAD, as in rotting and decomposing and just blech. I mean, I like zombies just as much as the next girl. It’s just when a human and zombie deicde to have some kind of relationship that I bail. I like zombie books, where the zombies are evil and must be destroyed. And if there is romance in the book, it’s between two human zombie-hunters/survivors. So, I sadly just kind of forgot about Warm Bodies, until close to the end of 2012. I went to the movie theatre to watch something (I don’t remember what I was going to see) and what should I see flash across the big screen? A trailer for a movie called Warm Bodies (at this point, the title was ringing a distant bell), it looked hilarious and really, really good. I immediately wanted to watch it and then I immediately forgot about it as the movie I had come to see came on. I pretty much forgot all about it once again until mid-January of 2013, when I first saw the Warm Bodies trailer on T.V. That’s when it clicked. I was like, “Hey! That’s based on a book!” Now, I actually wanted to read the book, because not only did the trailer look really good, but it revealed to me one huge detail that pushed me to read it: when the zombie, R, falls in love; it causes him to turn into a human. YES! I was all over this book- I checked it out from my library and read it in two days. I. LOVED. IT. <3 Warm Bodies is an ahhh-mazing book! It makes you give humanity a hard look and then lets you decide for yourself what’s wrong with it. R was a completely lovable zombie and this book totally changed my opinion about zombie love stories. Now, I should give you a warning: the movie trailers look light-hearted and funny. The book is most definitely not; it’s written for an older generation and has a more serious note to it a long with sight profanity and zombie nudity. Does this cause me to want to watch the movie less? NO! I’m still super excited to watch the movie and I have a feeling that while it’s going to be quite different from the book, I won’t love it any less! <3
