Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues (White Trash Zombie, #2) by Diana Rowland
Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues - Diana Rowland

After having finished My Life as A White Trash Zombie, I had to move on and read the next book. And I was not disappointed one bit! This one continues where we left off in the previous book. Angel is still working at the coroner's office and trying to get her life together. But of course, nothing is ever that simple. There's now an evil organization that is experimenting with the zombie virus to make super soldiers. Now Angel needs to figure out a way to stop these people whilst trying not to miss a meeting with her parole officer. Can't fight an evil corporation if you're stuck in jail, amirite?

 

Once again, I had so much fun reading this book. Diana Rowland just makes such great, fast, enjoyable reads that by the time you finish it, you're like, "Wait... that's it? But I want more!" I am just in love with this book series. I love the tone and the writing and the story. It's exactly what I was looking for after wanting to read something that was light but had enough meat in it that I felt I was enjoying my time.

 

The characters are still my favorite part of this story. Angel is still a precious darling that I want to find happiness. I love how she doesn't take anyone's bullshit. What I loved about her in this book specifically was how she demanded respect. She is fully aware that she does not have a good educational background and she doesn't have a career but that does not give people permission to disrespect her and she calls them out when they do. I love that commentary of the book. People come from all walks of life but they are still people. Treat them with respect.

 

Another aspect of this book that I really enjoyed was Angel's relationship with her father. In the first book, he was abusive towards her. He even beat her. But here, we see them working towards a better relationship. It's not easy and it's far from perfect but they are working towards a better one. That's not something you see a lot in fiction. Where people, as messed up as certain aspects of their lives are, they are working towards fixing it and making it better. It shows there are many layers to us all and though we've messed up along the way, that does not mean it's over.

 

I love this series, I've only read two so far but I am highly enjoying it. There's so many good things that Rowland touches on that need to be talked about more. I love how diverse her cast is! From different class backgrounds to different races to different sexualities. This book series, though it is about zombies, is also about so much more. Please go out and read it. The same warnings I gave of the first book apply here as well. Violence, gore, sexual assault, and alcohol/drug use are throughout the book, but if you can read about those things, then you should definitely check this series out. I think it's amazing and enjoyable and well-written. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the series and seeing what I think of them. Although, if the first two are any indication, I'm sure I'm going to love them.

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues (White Trash Zombie #2) by Diana Rowland
Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues - Diana Rowland

 

 

Angel Crawford is finally starting to get used to life as a brain-eating zombie, but her problems are far from over.

Her felony record is coming back to haunt her, more zombie hunters are popping up, and she’s beginning to wonder if her hunky cop-boyfriend is involved with the zombie mafia.

 

Yeah, that’s right—the zombie mafia.

Throw in a secret lab and a lot of conspiracy, and Angel’s going to need all of her brainpower—and maybe a brain smoothie as well—in order to get through it without falling apart.

 

 

 

 

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues is the second book in the White Trash Zombie series and going in from that I know that second books tend to be a transition books when its a part of a series that continues on into other books. Keeping that in mind I didn't have high expectations but again Rowland impressed me.

Angel is put through more of her transition into being a zombie and is still trying to find her place and her footing in her "new world" or new life as it were.

Angel becomes the center of attention after she gets held up at the morgue and a body is taken. Not only does her past come back to haunt her she discovers that there is more going on in her town among the zombies than she could even guess. Luckily she also finds and makes new friends - even among those she assumed were enemies.

Her relationship with Marcus is put to the test as she also realizes the complications she has emotionally going into a serious relationship as well as Marcus and his own issues allowing Angel to really stand on her own.

Also a mention of note is her relationship with her father and how that continues to be a focus of change in her life as well as she kind of tries to find her way.

I thought it was a great read and I liked getting to see Angel continue her journey and how well she's doing adjusting to it.

my though

 

 

4 ½ ★

 

This books just starts a few weeks where the last book ended and get us right back to Angel and her job and now new boyfriend.

I really love Angel she is truly realistic down to earth has flaws and struggles but yet we love her as she is trying to better her life.

I love that it takes her a while and she is not just perfect even though she not taking drugs anymore. While she works to get her life even more under control and working on getting a GED she still struggles and falls back to her old self a little.

She also working on her relationship with her dad, again it all is just real, it has more downs than ups but they are working on it. And it really awesome to follow them on the often hard journey to a sober life and a good father –daughter relationship.

I really don’t like Marcus in this book. And I was glad we don’t get to see him all that often because he was just a bit too much and almost clingy and over protective of her as even she points out.

We get some really surprising twists in this book and I really enjoyed that up to the very last pages we don’t know who really the “bad” guy is. Every time I thought I knew it changed.

Some people returning from the first book. Some people are not as much in it. We also get to know a few other people, including Marcus’s uncle and some other family members. 

Nick ‘the prick’ is really coming around and I’m super stoked about that, he was one of my favorites from the last book.  The same goes for Derrell but he was a good guy from the beginning.

Overall, great book, some great humor, action, some gross stuff. I really enjoy the series so far. But I still think what I like the most is the growth of Angel, how far she already has gotten and am excited to see how far she will go. There was one thing at the very end, where I thought it was almost too easy and really  would have loved to not see it that easy but I will see how it continues.

But overall I really loved this book and can’t wait to get to the next one. I rate it at 4 ½ ★

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

 

“Nick the prick was getting less and less prickish the longer I knew him.”

 

***

 

“Being bummed and depressed as a zombie sucked complete ass.”

 

***

 

“Zombie Super Powers, activate, you fucking bitches.”

 

***

 

“Both the zombie mafia and the rebel zombie alliance could suck my white trash undead ass.”

Missing That Special Bite book 1 Had
Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues - Diana Rowland

Lacked the thrill of book one.
The first 3/4 of the book was a slow ramble
The last 1/4 made up for the slowness with it's intensity
This was a story character development chapter in the series slow but has set up the world well.
On to #3

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

Between this series and IZombie (CW Show) I have found zombies that I can live with.  Zombies that mindlessly eat are really not my thing.  They give me nightmares…These zombies are still functioning members of society, with thoughts and desires of their own. 

With plenty of intriguing mystery, good friends, and a splash of romance this second book was even better than the first, Angel is really coming into her own; with being a zombie, and surviving the hunger for brains.

 

My only qualm with this series is the covers…they always have her holding a cigarette in every one of them.  I don't get it, because in this book she clearly states how she can't even smoke because her parasite; (what makes her a zombie) has to use up her brains quicker to combat what damage the cigarettes are doing to her body.  It's silly, I don't think it makes her look cooler because she's holding a cigarette.

⇝Sex Factor⇜ None that is explicit, it's really not the focus of this book…even the romance is dialed down and takes a back seat to the mystery.
