Book Review: The Time Zombies Became the Least of My Worries By Jen Naumann


Book Description: 

Ever since the zombie virus hit Emma’s irritatingly boring Midwestern hometown, she’s been on the run with her old best friend-turned-boyfriend Finn. On their journey, they’ve witnessed some pretty disgusting deaths, narrowly escaped life-threatening escapades that sometimes included one of their own pulling a gun on them numerous times, and redefined the definition of what makes up a family (as it turns out, soldiers and geeks can be pretty decent). They’ve even learned the disturbing truth behind the mysterious virus. But after Emma was bit by one of the infected trying to save her neighbor boy, she was told she would not have long to live.
In the thrilling sequel to The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life, Finn will help to tell the story as Emma and the gang are faced with the most crucial life-changing decisions yet. They’ll come across an unfortunate group of rednecks, discover the truth of what happened to Finn’s federal agent mother, and finally see a chance at truly being safe without having to run anymore. But in the middle of it all, Emma and Finn’s relationship will soar to completely uncomfortable levels when Finn takes things one step too far. And between being injected with an unknown liquid, taking on a completely unexpected (and really agitating alliance), and being left for dead by those she loves most, Emma will realize that zombies are the least of her worries.

I first fell in love with this series when I read The Day Zombies Ruined My Perfectly Boring Life. I couldn’t wait for the sequel to come out. When I got my hands on a ARC I was so excited I couldn’t stop jumping for joy. And I’m so happy to say the sequel did not disappoint. From the very first chapter I found myself hooked. I couldn’t stop laughing out loud and cheering for our group of misfits. Jen has an amazing talent bring comedy to her writing without trying too hard. I love the chemistry all the characters have with each other. You really feel like you know them. Emma is definitely the star of this book. I love how carefree she is, even when she’s dealing with turning into a zombie. Emma is one tough girl. She doesn’t just sit around waiting to be saved, but instead is fighting along side the guys. Without giving anything away Emma turns out to be a hero in more ways then one.

Let’s talk about Finn. He’s as hot and romantic as he is in the first book. His love for Emma makes him protective of her. He doesn’t care who he pisses off as long as he’s taking care of Emma. If there’s ever a Zombie outbreak I hope I have someone like Finn to protect me.

If you think all the hidden secretes were revealed in the first book you are dead wrong. The Time Zombies Became the Least of My Worries still manages to shock the reader. Many times my jaw hit the floor. I kept thinking I did not see that coming. I truly enjoyed reading every page in this book and never found myself board. Besides laughing out loud I also had my heart racing with all the twists. Most loved the relationship between Emma and Finn. But most of all I loved the relationship between Emma and Finn with all the other characters.
