Review: White Trash Zombie Gone Wild (White Trash Zombie #5) by Diana Rowland
White Trash Zombie Gone Wild - Diana Rowland

 

 

Angel Crawford has buried her loser past and is cruising along in undead high gear--that is, until a murder-by-decapitation sends her on a hazardous detour. As Angel hunts for the killer, she uncovers a scheme that would expose zombies to the public and destroy the life she's built, and she's determined not to rest until she finds out who's behind it.

Soon she's neck-deep in lies, redneck intrigue, zombie hunters, and rot-sniffing cadaver dogs. It's up to her to unravel the truth and snuff out the conspiracy before the existence of zombies makes headline news and she's outed as a monster.

But Angel hasn't quite escaped the pill-popping ghosts of her past--not with an illicit zombie pharmaceutical at her fingertips. Good thing she's absolutely sure she can handle the drug's unpredictable side effects and still take down the bad guys...or maybe she's only one bad choice away from being dead meat--for real this time.

Angel knows a thing or two about kicking ass, but now the ass she needs to kick might be her own

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of last book I was really worried about Angel as she found a new way to get high now as a zombie. And we are dealing with that a big part of this book. But I admit I really enjoy that we are not getting the “prefect” character with this series and especially this book. Angel not only has to deal with her new addiction but also gets outed. So she has plenty of stuff thrown at her in this book. She gains some unlikely and new allies in this book. Which I really enjoyed. I also liked that we got less of the whole SaberTech stuff and more of Angle and her daily life or more of her chaos would be more fitting. I absolutely love this series because Angel is one of my all-time favorite character arcs. It is slow and gradually, has its up and downs and overall is very realistic and easy to relate to . The same goes with any and all relationships in this series. Friendships and romantic. Which by the way we don’t get much in this book. But I think something has been brewing in that department for a while and we will get to … hopefully soon. Anyway. I love the way they build up relationships and works through issues. Like her and her dad, I used to hate her dad and he has done some pretty nasty things but I really think, he is next to Angel a rising star of the series. I absolutely loved him in this book. Thinking back to book one I would have never thought that happening. We have some nice surprises and twist in this book that I honestly didn’t see coming. Some spots of the book were a little slow but overall I really loved this book and Angle’s adventurers and I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series.

I rate it 4 ★

Diana Rowland has lived her entire life below the Mason-Dixon line, uses "y'all" for second-person-plural, and otherwise has no southern accent (in her opinion.) She attended college at Georgia Tech where she earned a BS in Applied Mathematics, and after graduation forgot everything about higher math as quickly as possible.

She has worked as a bartender, a blackjack dealer, a pit boss, a street cop, a detective, a computer forensics specialist, a crime scene investigator, and a morgue assistant, which means that she's seen plenty of weird crap. She won the marksmanship award in her Police Academy class, has a black belt in Hapkido, has handled numerous dead bodies in various states of decomposition, and can't rollerblade to save her life.

She presently lives in south Louisiana where she's deeply grateful for the existence of air conditioning.

How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back (White Trash Zombie #4) by Diana Rowland
How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back - Diana Rowland

 

syns

 

It’s zombie versus zombie as the Saberton Corporation declares war against the Zombie Mafia, kidnapping several of their party. It falls to Angel to lead the remnants of her gang halfway across the country to claw their way through corporate intrigue, zombie drugs, and undead trafficking to rescue her friends—and expose the traitor responsible for their abduction...

 

 

my though

 

 

This is the fourth book of the series and it was a little different than the previous books. One we have Angel taken out of her environment and out of the group of people she works with and thrown into a world world that is completely new to her.

Saberton is still at it and trying its best to destroy all zombies. They kidnap some major players in the whole Z game including the head of the clan Pierto. That throws everyone into a frenzy as they know what could happen if they not find him fast and most important without anyone knowing.

While the books seemed a bit slower in the beginning compared to others I still liked it best. Of course because of Angel and how wicked awesome she is. She has shown some really, major growth throughout the series and it really shows. Just not as you would expect it sometimes. She really runs into a lot of self-doubt, this book. But in the end it just shows how much she really has grown love how far she has come and all people she has, met and how they see her., verseus how she sees herself.

I like that she now has friends to hang out and talk to , no matter how different they might be from her world. Also she can trust them. Or can she? Also dealing with a mole and really it can be anyone in there group. She doesn’t know who she can trust and who she cannot trust .

Since she is in New York throughout this book we do not get a lot of interaction with people form her work and her work, which I kind of missed. But we still get some info and news from it.

I liked that she stands up to Marcus AGAIN in this book but I really wish she shouldn’t have to do this over and over with him. I really don’t like but after that ending I think we will see a lot more of him.

Someone I really did like was Brian. I really could not get enough of page time with him. I really hope him and Angel do get together at some point. I think they would make a great team.

Phillip, ummmmm not really sure, that whole Phillip thing is kinda freaky to me, he always give me the creeps and I’m not sure why.

Pietro, I think after this book all the cards are on the table… about him … but maybe not. Knowing him there are like twenty Aces up his sleeve. It also will be very interesting how all this will play out and continue, there are some game changing events in this book. 

There were also some really weird things happening, even for me and I’m not really sure what to think about it. I think I will wait it out and see what happens now before I judge it more.

Overall really loved the book, while Angels had some moments of self-doubt and sometimes seemed to be falling back into her old lifestyle and way of thinking she came out on top in the end. She will defiantly will have to step up to fill a new roll given to her. I just hope it won’t ruin her and all the hard work she done. For herself and her dad, their relationship as much as for herself. The end defiantly had me worried bit.

Oh and while we not see much of Nick(the prick), the few moments we do  see/ hear him it defiantly worth it. I really like him and really curios to see more of him and his story.

All in all great book, great action, humor and shocking twists all throughout that I enjoyed.

I rate it 4 ½★   

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

“I heard a low growl and realized it was coming from my own throat. Fuck the fear and fuck the insecurities. I was worth fighting for. Every woman was worth fighting for. Didn't matter if they were trash or addicts or rich or popular. Didn't matter if they dressed like a homeless waif, or in tight skirts and heels, or in jeans and flannel. No one deserved to feel hopeless and worthless the way this goddamn asshole wanted me to feel and, I had no doubt, made other girls feel.

 

***

 

The scent of his fresh human brain filled my senses, and I began to salivate like a dog at a barbecue. Shit. I dint know a lot about this spy business, but I was pretty sure eating a hostage wasn’t cool .

 

***

 

“Dude, if you don’t eat a couple of bites right now, I’ll chew it up and spit it into your mouth which would be beyond gross for both of us since there are bell peppers on that slice.”

 

***

 

 Oh, god. I groaned o myself. I’m going to lunch with my hunky boyfriend and my also hunky zombie kid. Awkward city, party of three.

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse (White Trash Zombie #3)
White Trash Zombie Apocalypse - Diana Rowland

 

syns

 

Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up.

But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

Angel’s been through more than her share of crap, but this time she’s in way over her head. She’ll need plenty of brainpower to fit all the pieces—and body parts—together in order to save herself, her town, and quite possibly the human race.

 

 

my though

 

I really like how far Angel grew since book one. Not too much and not too little. Just the right amount. I also like that she has some setbacks throughout her journey.

She continues to build a better life for her dad and herself. She still works hard on her GED and of course she still works in the morgue.

The relationship with her dad still a bit strained but both are working on it. I love that it takes a while, instead just having a magic cure. It has his up and downs with them two. And things defiantly get tested for them in this book.

I love that Angel starting to be more and more “mushy” about people and really starting to let people in.

 We have some familiar faces and some new ones. But we never know who to trust and who not to trust. Some people we thought were with us but really were not. Others was the opposite.

Marcus Oh man I cannot decide on him. Should I like him or shouldn’t I?? I have no clue, I’m all over the place when it comes to Marcus. Sometimes I want to smack him and a few pages later I like him again.

Pietro. Hmmmmmm as much as I want to, I still do not trust him and we still not really know how much her really is the good guy. He has his hands in everything good or bad. He seems genuine but also seems to be playing it well…. I really don’t know. The jury is still out when it comes to him.

Phillip. I have a feeling I will like Phillip, evil or good it doesn’t matter.

Nick, (“the prick”). I really love Nick and wish we get more of him. Even hoping he and Angel hook up at one point.

I also enjoyed Brian, I think we will see a lot more of him and hopefully learn a bit more about him.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It started out a bit slower than the first couple books but picked later on.

Also some things are better explained in this book, and we learn more about the zombies. It is also hinted that they might or might not be more to Angel. Why or what is a mystery for another book I guess.

I rate this book 4 ★

 

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

Zombies Anonymous? Hello, my name is Angel, and it’s been three weeks since I’ve shambled.

 

***

 

Props to stubborn-bitch-willpower for saving the day.

 

***

 

“...with that I turned into a punching, struggling, kicking psycho redneck zombie bitch.”

 

***

 

“God damn, but there was nothing better tasting in the whole damn world than warm brain when you were shot the hell up. Like a cold beer after a long hot day of working in the yard.”

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

    

syns

 

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.

 

 

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.”
