Dearly, Departed - Lia Habel I really enjoyed this book for a ton of reasons so I'm just going to go through a few of them. 1. This book is very unique. It's dystopian, it's paranormal romance, it's zombies, it's cyberpunk, and it's got some elements of Victorian history. You really can't put it in one box which is why it's so cool.2. It's written in 1st person POV, but with several characters. You get to see an odd romance from both perspectives which I love plus various secondary characters. Not to mention that Lia Habel is a fantastic writer and you get a very clear picture of the world she created.3. Nora Dearly (lead character) and her best friend Pam have a friendship that you can only respect and a character ARC that leaves you cheering for them at every page. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but Pam is pretty kick-ass that's all I'm going to say.4. I can honestly tell you that I NEVER thought I'd say this, but I'm adding a zombie named Bram to my list of fictional boyfriends. Yup, I love a zombie, what of it? ;-pEither way, this is a fun read with lots of sweet romantic elements, but nothing that the younger end of the YA market should stay away from. I would recommend this to anyone 12 and up who thinks that zombie books are for boys. Bottom line: I can't wait for this series to continue. Go buy this book right now!
