Walking Disaster
Walking Disaster - Jamie McGuire disappointing compared to the Beautiful Disaster book. I think these two should have somehow been intertwined. Maybe because I knew how the story would unfold I didn't find this a good or interesting read. It didn't ring with the same authenticity as Beautiful Disaster. Would definitely read more by the author though.

Beautiful Disaster
Beautiful Disaster - Jamie McGuire I enjoyed this book almost against my better judgement.

There were huge cliches, there was two dimensional characters and still I kept reading keenly. The language was engaging and the storyline kept you engaged.

I definitely think this is a great wet weekend companion - nothing too intense but very engaging. The only issue for me was the constant violence was a little off putting (but I like my books pretty low on this feature in general. The descriptive terms were almost too clear and accurate for me to feel comfortable with the violence exhibited - but I do think that is just my issue.

The main characters were interesting in their naive natures combined with their optimism which I felt was a great indicator of the author's understanding of youth. The simple scenarios were well described and I was wanting the "happily ever after" for the characters I liked. There were a few red herrings that I felt were a great indicator of the skill of the writer not just throwing out morsels that always came to fruition...

I would recommend if you are ok with fights being described in detail in your romances :-)

My Thoughts

 

Well…to be totally honest here…I only read the beginning and the end, I skipped the middle because too much zombie-ness gives me nightmares or in the case of this book, I just couldn't get to sleep all freaking night.  Honestly, the zombie apocalypse freaks me out, rationally, it's probably not even possible, but I'm not able to think rationally when all I can think about is something tearing my flesh apart or the possibility, that I might do that to someone I love.  {{{shuddering}}}  I thought for some reason, that maybe I was overcoming this issue and I could get through this…I was wrong.

 

So basically, this is based on my impression of the two parts that I did read.  I missed most of the relationship building and most likely some world building too.  I think, if you like Walking Dead then you would like this. I was reminded of snippets I've seen of that show when my daughter binge watches whole seasons on Netflix.

 

Sex Factor:  Not really sure on this one…
