                                                            Save me by L.J Baker


Andi was doing just fine on her own. Sure the world had been hit with an outbreak that turned anyone infected into flesh eating zombies. Not to mention that everyone she ever loved was now dead. She was alive though, taking care of herself. She had little desire to indulge in building relationships with anyone. People just couldn't be trusted. Whether they screwed you over intentionally, or just managed to get themselves killed, no one stuck around for very long. She didn't need anyone else either. That was until Will showed up to save her.

Will, with his sparkling green eyes, lips you just wanted to taste, and insanely adorable crooked smile, wasn't letting Andi get rid of him so easily. Yet still, Andi did everything she could to push her feelings, and Will, away. The more time they spent together though, the more difficult that became. In a world where another day was not something you could count on, wasting even a single moment, could mean missing out on your only chance for happiness.

Aimi's thoughts:

When I first found out that this is a zombie apocalyptic book, I was terrified. I'm not much of a zombie fan. I nearly crapped myself watching the Walking Dead tv series, but it's kind of like you're witnessing a terrible accident happening and you just can't turn away despite being terrified to death? Walking Dead is like that for me. It scares me. I couldn't be alone for a while (big wimp I know). Did it stopped me from watching it? Hell no. In fact, I'm addicted. I need those freaking zombies whether if I like it or not.
So when I stumble upon this book, I was kinda happy and terrified at the same time. I want to feel that goosebump creeping into me. But what did I get? Nada.
Dude. Post apocalyptic world. It's suppose to be terrifying, running for your lives kind of situation. But this book hardly mentions much about the gore, about the scariness of the zombies or any goosebumps inducing scenarios. In fact, this twit of a heroine seems to skip around in daylight without much of a weapon and still lives the day. Wtf? Sometimes, I wish that the heroine, Andi gets eaten by a zombie just to see some action happening.
I think Ms. Baker aims for the heroine to have a snarky attitude. She's more like a spoiled brat to me.
For example, Andi refuses to kill a child zombie despite that little killer hobbling towards her like she's chow meat and Will, the hero got pissed at her. And Andi was like, 'dude, why are you pissed?'.
Correct quotes are: 'I don't know why he was being such a jerk. He knew it was difficult for me. Why did he need to push so hard?'
wtf man. Andi, you're surviving the zombie apocalypse. Duh! It's hardly the time and place to be picky!
And also, Will tries to save her sorry ass many times and she ended up getting pissed.
'He really was being an ass. How long did I need to be punished for one little mistake? He was being a little ridiculous now, holding a grudge this long over me going upstairs without him'.
This nice guy tries to save her life and she's being a bitch about it *smh*.

Overall, it was a pretty short read although I could've used that time to read other books. Or re-watch my asian dramas.
