arc review: zombie abbey

zombie abbey
3 stars!
A special thank you goes out to Entangled Teen publishing for allowing me to read this eARC early. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
expected publication: april 3

So I didn’t love this book but I didn’t hate it. It was like a water downed classic. I don’t mean that in a bad way. It would serve well as a good intro into classics from writers like Jane Austen. But I found I just couldn’t connect with the plot or the characters. The plot meandered and then it just kind of ends with no real conclusion.

I don’t want to fill this with all negative opinions. I certainly liked the concept. It was very original. Not something you see a lot in YA literature. But man, I couldn’t handle a lot of the characters, not to mention the sheer amount of them. I couldn’t keep a lot of them straight because when it switched to their POVs, they called different people different names. It got very confusing very fast. The family of the Abbey was snotty, rude and unhelpful except for maybe Grace and Lizzy. But even then, they had their moments. The staff was okay. They mostly were there to add to the family’s story. I enjoyed Fanny at first, the housemaid, but she started to annoy me at the end.

I think if you’re into Jane Austen classics, this would be the book for you. I’m still trying to get into classics and zombie books so I might not have been the right audience for this book. But if this sounds good to you, be sure to check it out when it’s released.
