Five of the funniest YA zombie novels

At the B & N Teen Blog she tagged five of the funniest YA zombie novels, including:
Warm Bodies, by Isaac Marion

Imagine an incredibly funny Romeo and Juliet, but with more brain eating. R is a soulful philosopher trapped in the body of a zombie. His days are spent engaging in traditional zombie hobbies: riding escalators, groaning, and eating brains. But when R eats the brains of a teenage boy and begins hearing his thoughts, things take an unexpected turn, as he falls in love with the boy’s girlfriend. The two star-crossed lovers begin a romance that will transform more than just their lives—it’ll change everything. Bonus: Warm Bodies was turned into an equally charming movie starring the always welcome Nicholas Hoult.

Warm Bodies is among Nick Harkaway's six favorite holiday books and Nicole Hill's seven favorite literary oddballs.
