Blurb : “I’m not moving to a whole new school! I’ll be eaten alive!”

Stella Blunt’s world is ending. Her parents have dragged her across the country, and she has to start over in a new school. Th is is a big problem, because she doesn’t make friends easily: she’s large, she’s loud, and she doesn’t suffer fools gladly.The only person who likes her is the cute geek in her Chemistry class. He’s a great listener, he’s smart at science, and he loves her for her mind. Then again, she’s not sure whether that’s a good thing, considering that he also drinks brains from a thermos and walks with a lurch.To complicate matters, undead hordes have started showing up at her door.Can Stella take on a new school, an undead romance, and handle a chainsaw?Described as “Like Twilight, but with zombies and feminism”, Chemistry is an irreverent romp with a surprising amount of heart from debut author C.L. Lynch, who thinks that fat girls and zombies deserve love too.

 

Review : I am really wondering … (because I do not in any way want to offend an author) BUT …is “Chemistry” by C.L. Lynch meant to be a funny and humorous book? Because if so this author did a great job with her debut novel.

 

If I am allowed to not take it to serious (even given the paranormal factor I also take those books serious usually) than I have to say I really laughed my A** off .. (sorry for the language but it fits the book) …

 

I will go with this humorous streak of the novel because if I would think of it in a serious way I would have to really comment on the similarities to twilight being to heavy to ignore. And we do not want to go into that to deep as that would open Pandora’s books (ups BOX I meant) of fan opinions.

 

For me being a fan of the Twilight series that is a really generous thing to say.

 

Ok so this book is really hilarious (and I mean that in a good way not negative) It started with the cover that had me laughing and within the first few pages already the dialogue between Stella and her parents almost killed me.

Her sass is adorable.

 

And then there is Howie … he is really written as the perfect guy – giving his all and expecting nothing.

 

I think to describe the content the line in the Blurb I saw on Goodreads is really fitting … it is REALLY Like Twilight, but with zombies and – I would have said instead of “feminism” – a female heroin that really kicks dialogue ass.

 

If you are open to really laugh about something that might remind you of twiligt .. you really should read this book.
