Today's Read: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 "teaser" sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

I am dead, but it's not so bad. I've learned to live with it. I'm sorry I can't properly introduce myself, but I don't have a name anymore. Hardly any of us do. We lose them like car keys, forget them like anniversaries. Mine might have started with an "R," but that's all I have now. It's funny because back when I was alive, I was always forgetting other people's names. My friend "M" says the irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you can't smile because your lips have rotted off. (p. 3)
—From Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion (Simon & Schuster / Atria, 2011)

Hey there! So lovely meeting you at BEA in May. I am happy to see that you are reading WARM BODIES. What are you thinking of it so far?

I really adored it, I mean, how can you NOT empathize with our undead little friend, right?!

Great teaser. But I avoid zombie books, so I'll give this one a pass. My teasers are from Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong and Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey. Happy reading!

Interesting teaser. I wouldn't have thought Zombie-hood would involve so much laughter.

Ok, the part about the lips falling off has cinched this for me. I will definitely be reading this at some point, and I am eager to see your review.

I won´t be reading a zombie story, but I appreciate the tone of this one.

Veens 7/12/11, 3:03 PM  

I just cannot read a book with zombies! Am I weird?

bermudaonion 7/12/11, 3:51 PM  

Once I saw zombies, I thought this might not be for me.

I really like your teaser, I think it may be my favourite so far today. Thanks for sharing, I am definitely putting it on my TBR list!

I read lots of different paranormals, but can't say I have read a lot of zombie novels.
