The Bride Wore Brains was a very pleasant surprise. The blurb itself sounded good, but I expect to enjoy it quite as much as I did. It’s a very short read, but the action starts right away and doesn’t stop.


I have read very few zombie books that include wedding situations. I like them because many women stress so much over their weddings, waiting for their “perfect day” and when the slightest thing goes awry, they lose their damn minds. Imagine having those unrealistic expectations and then imagine having them utterly destroyed by a bunch of disgusting zombies. I have to say, after my own wedding, I’m not entirely sure I would have been too upset if zombies had eaten my own mother. In fact, I think I would have preferred or even encouraged it after the way she and my grandmother behaved.


From within the first few pages of this book, the action doesn’t stop. There are a few moments where I have to question the mental capabilities of some of the characters, but Claire, the bride, really shows her strength in unexpected ways. I’m pretty sure that this is what it would be like had zombies invaded my wedding, with my friends doing their thing. This makes it very easy for me to relate to as a reader.


I enjoyed the creativity and author’s ability to paint the images of a beautiful wedding gone horribly, horribly wrong. Each character brings something else to the table in either a badass or entertaining way. The characters were unpredictable but fun and I enjoyed their senses of humor.


Overall, this was a great read. My only complaint would be that it isn’t long enough, and that is only because I’m greedy like that. If you are looking for a funny and quick zombie fix, check out The Bride Wore Brains, it’s totally worth it. I can’t wait to see what else this new author has coming for us!
