Dead Over Heels by Alison Kemper (Review)

Image
Publication date: September 29 2014
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Number of pages: 269
My rating: 2/5 
Note: Dead Over Heels is not a sequel to Donna of the Dead. You do not have to read Donna of the Dead beforehand. I end up doing a lot of comparison between the two in this review that probably isn’t as relevant as it should be, but the basic ideas in my review still stand.
Dead Over Heels is a very formulaic, clichéd novel. It’s predecessor, Donna of the Dead, was mildly clichéd, but it also had a touch of originality and a cast of likable characters. However, Dead Over Heels was missing a lot of the originality that the previous book had. The general formula of surviving a zombie apocalypse was kind of fresh in Donna of the Dead, but repeating the same formula in Dead Over Heels led to a boring and predictable novel.

Update

Hey, everyone!
So, I've been really inconsistent over the past year. Actually, I don't think I've ever been that consistent with posting. Also, I haven't updated my page with all my reviews on it for ages.
Oops.
Anyway, I was kind of busy with year twelve (the last year of high school in Australia), so I wasn't able to review books as frequently as I normally did.
I recently finished high school (yay!) so I should be able to post more reviews now.
However, I have many other hobbies and I've recently taken up ice skating and drawing. I have way too many hobbies, so I need to cut back on a couple.
So, while I'll be reviewing more frequently over the next few months, I will probably never reach the frequency and dedication I had in the past. 
I'll always be obsessed with reading and writing, and I'll still waste time on Goodreads. I just won't review as much.
Well, happy reading!
