I have a new YA Fantasy book to share with all of you called Apocalipstick written by Lisa Acerbo.
Life is bad after the apocalypse...the undead just made it worse. Jenna should be having the time of her life at college. Instead, her one desire is survival. She lives in a world gone insane after a virus kills most of the population. Being alive after the apocalypse is bad, but when the undead return, hungry for humans, times turn darker. For Jenna and a small group of survivors, the goal is to reach the High Point Inn.  
At the inn, Jenna develops feelings for Caleb, who, while exotic and intoxicating, is not quite human. Will this new utopia last?
Wow, this was a really seriously bad story for everyone who were able to live through thru the virus that killed everyone.
I haven't read too many books about zombies and such but this book took care of that quota pretty darn good. It's full of zombies but they call them stalkers and then there are the humans and then the "others" who are almost like vampires. So, this one had a little bit of everything in it.
If you love this type of book, then this one won't disappoint you.  It's filled with a little bit of romance also so it's not all bad things. You will find respite in several of the couples who manage to find some happiness.
Happy Reading!
