Zombies, Zombies, and More Zombies

Hungry For You by A.M. Harte

Disclaimer: I received this book from the author in exchange for a review. 

Summary: "There is no greater drug than relationships; there is no sweeter death than love." 

Love is horrible. It’s ruthless, messy, mind-altering, and raw. It takes no prisoners. It chews you up and spits you out and leaves you for dead. Love is, you could say, very much like a zombie. 

In this haunting short story collection, anything is possible—a dying musician turns to tea for inspiration; a police sergeant struggles with a very unusual victim; a young wife is trapped in a house hiding unimaginable evil…. 

With "Hungry For You", A.M. Harte explores the disturbing and delightful in an anthology that unearths the thin boundary between love and death. 

Review: An incredible collection of short stories about zombies and so much more.

I am still on the fence about zombies. I love other supernatural/paranormal creatures and will read almost anything with them involved (vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, and the like), but I have to think about whether or not I want to read a book about zombie. I was incredibly pleased with Harte's stories. She is an incredible short story and packs quite a punch in a few pages. Sure, there were zombies, but they were a backdrop to love, hate, despair, hope, anger. My favorite stories were the tea addict (who thought tea could be addictive), zombies who need sex to survive (such a twist), and the giant rose (so damn creepy!). 


Recommendation: I would recommend this fans of horror, zombies, and anyone who enjoys stories that pack an emotional punch.


  1. This sounds like a good one. I don't like writing reviews for anthologies because I'm too lazy and it's a lot of work!

    1. In the future, I might try and take notes for each story, but I won't ever review each story. I would just give the general impression that I got, some stories I really liked, and some that I didn't like.

  2. Hi Natasha, Nice pick! Will check this book out. I love Zombies!-TheUnseelieNerd

    1. It's a really good read! And I'm not even the biggest fan of zombies either.
