Zombie Abbey Reviews
Lauren Baratz-Logsted's books are typically very hit-or-miss for me. Sometimes I enjoy them while other times they simple aren't my cup of tea. I couldn't resist Zombie Abbey, however, as I wanted to see what a zombie flavored Downtown Abbey book would be like.
As it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a quirky read, relying on early dramatics, humor, and zombie gore to drive the story forward.

Zombie Abbey is a short and hilarious read, perfect for fans of zombies and 1920's England.
When Will Harvey's aunt shoots her husband, no one believes her when she tells people that he was most definitely dead, before rising back to life and trying to kill her. When the zombies reach the Clarke estate, everyone must set aside their differences and work together, or they just might end up dead.
After reading the synopsis of this book I knew that I had to read it. I love the time period that this i ...more
Thank you to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for the E-ARC copy of this novel.
I have read Lauren Baratz-Logsted before, I think her books are creative and imaginative. After having said that this book is right up there with her best. It's a entertaining, fun read. Think British humor and campy horror mixed together. It is not like anything else on the young adult shelves right now. It has a Scooby gang chase to it. I gave it five stars because of it's inventive and ...more
Actual Rating 4.5
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
In the start, this book gave me Pride and Prejudice and Zombies vibes, but no it was different. I am not a big fan of Zombies so this book was perfect for me, the Interesting thing is that the main focus of the book was not on the Zombies even the word zombie was not even used (As far as I could remember it because I was eager to read that how they came to know to zombies, because they even don't kno ...more
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.
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 th ...more
Yes, it’s true. When you start to read this book, you’ll get a few flashes of Pride & Prejudice with Zombies. But, no worries. This isn’t a carbon copy, so read on!
In Zombie Abbey, Lauren Baratz-Logsted brings us a very clever, funny and heartfelt tale of manners, class distinction, women coming into their own power…and zombies, of course.
Now, you may find yourself a bit put off by a couple of the sisters at first. Please keep reading. They each come into their own soon enough. While I did h ...more
