Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies: A Novel | Isaac Marion
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.R is having a no-life crisishe is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but hed rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization. And then he meets a girl. First as his captive, then his reluctant house guest, Julie is a blast of living color in Rs gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesnt want to eat this girlalthough she looks delicioushe wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they cant imagine, and their hopeless world wont change without a fight.

So I had one of those couldn‘t sleep nights (my husband is coming in town so I‘m excited) anyway woke up early to finish this one (while I have my coffee)... so... I loved how sweet of a love story it is. The message of love can heal is always a good one to read

Such a funny book ! Would recommend to anyone who likes zombies and wants a short book to read. As much as I liked it, I actually prefer the movie (Dont get your pitchforks out!) Only because I feel that the book didn't give off any emotion, I mean yeah they zombies, but still... However, I did enjoy it and would consider re-reading it.

#AugustWrapUp
A great month for reading despite going back to work! Fav book is tagged.

My desire to join the #MagicalReadathon2019 (better late than never!) led me to most of the books I read. I successfully earned an Outstanding for the #OWLsReadathon2019! One of the books also doubled for my #ReadLikeRory challenge.

I also finally finished both the Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter series, the latter for #HPBuddyRead.

Quite proud! 🤩

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great job, and some truly great books! 2mo
laur89 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thanks!! Are any of your favs on this list?? 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved Narnia when I first read it, and Harry Potter is always a great read and reread. 2mo

It‘s been a looong day for what was supposed to be a ‘holy‘ Thursday (jk, nothing is sacred in sales 🙄). So it‘s currently 3am and I‘m cheating and killing 2 prompts with 1 post! 😜

#LetYouLoveMe reminds me of this book as Julie lets R try to love her despite the unfortunate circumstances they both face. By the end of the novel they also #fall in love with each other as fate (or Marion) would have it. 🧟‍♂️

I LOVE this song- the Indigo Girls cover is on my most played playlist. This may have been the song I sang to my kids instead of The Wheels On The Bus. And this retelling has a much softer, sweeter ending with zombies are involved. #romeoandjuliet #marchintothe70s

1. Book: “Warm Bodies” by Isaac Marion

2. Movie: “Shaun of the Dead” or “My Boyfriend‘s Back” (weirdly, a favorite of my childhood/early adolescence; I had it on VHS)

3. Song: “My Bodies a Zombie for You” by Dead Man‘s Bones or, obviously, “Zombie” by The Cranberries

This is one of the few instances where I've read the book after watching the movie and after finishing them both, I see them almost equally - though the book might stand slightly higher for me. There were moments when the differences between the two threw me off, but ultimately I think the expansions in the book fleshed the story out a little more.

Over the years, whenever I‘ve read a book I thought @ElishaLovesBooks might like (or perhaps someone in her family), I‘ve loaned it to her confident it would come back. This morning she let me know she had two bags to return to me. Hahaha! What she meant was two BIG BAGS FULL OF ALL THE BOOKS! I‘m very thankful to have a friend so passionate about books & reading—I really love our book talks. And yes, every book came back looking like new!

This book turned out to be so much better than I expected. The narrator, R, is a zombie who slowly finds himself changing into...something more human? He isn't sure. His journey begins when, instead of eating a young girl, he saves her and takes her home to protect her. The adventure that follows is heart-warming and exciting! I definitely plan on finishing the series.

Well, I'll admit it: it's the "Twilight" of zombie novels. But that's okay with me, I like it a lot and hope to read the sequel soon.

This is a fun one! I narrowed my list down to Jack Kerouac, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Isaac Marion, and Gillian Flynn. 😃

aeeklund Oh Isaac Marion. When he came into my bookstore randomly (he's local), I said something shatteringly intelligent, like, "You're Isaac Marion." He was taken aback that I recognized him on sight. I wonder why. ?‍♀️ 2y

Finished this good read during my usual lunch & lit. Loved this book! The movie definitely varies from the book in some areas but the heart and tone are the same. The writing was surprisingly beautiful for the genre which I think is what I enjoyed most. If your a fan of zombie stories, or stories with heart, or romances, or you liked the movie... I highly recommend this book.

21 ~ Warm Bodies (The Warm Bodies Series~Book 1) by Isaac Marion (Kindle edition📱/re~read) ~ Started: 22.02.17 ~ Finished: 25.02.17
Rating: 5/5📚

This is the second time I have read 'Warm Bodies' and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time I read it. 'Warm Bodies' is a book that will surprise you, it is a mesmerizing story which hooks you right to the end.

A definite must read for zombie and non-zombie fans alike.

Highly recommended.

Velvetsun I've read this 4 times. It never loses any of its charm. One of my all time favorite books. 3y
