    1. Zombie Abbey is the first book of this kind I've read. I know there are quite a lot of this kind of books out there and I was curious. I didn't know what to expect and once I signed up I'll admit I was a little scared to read it. Porthampton Abbey has similarities to Downtown Abbey. The wealthy family with 3 female daughters; Lizzy, Grace and Kate. A well-orchestrated staff with a butler, footmen, maids and even a cat. The cast is quirky and fitting to the times. Katherine Clarke is the eldest s [...]


    2. Yes, it’s true. When you start to read this book, you’ll get a few flashes of Pride & Prejudice with Zombies. But, no worries. This isn’t a carbon copy, so read on!In Zombie Abbey, Lauren Baratz-Logsted brings us a very clever, funny and heartfelt tale of manners, class distinction, women coming into their own power…and zombies, of course.Now, you may find yourself a bit put off by a couple of the sisters at first. Please keep reading. They each come into their own soon enough. While [...]


    3. A special thank you goes out to Entangled Teen publishing for allowing me to read this eARC early. All thoughts and opinions are my own.So I didn't love this book but I didn't hate it. It was like a water downed classic. I don't mean that in a bad way. It would serve well as a good intro into classics from writers like Jane Austen. But I found I just couldn't connect with the plot or the characters. The plot meandered and then it just kind of ends with no real conclusion.I don't want to fill thi [...]


    4. Actual rating: 2.5 starsOmg, I really expected this to be more scary and creepy or at least more romancy. I'm not disappointed by this book, it just totally not what I expected.Okay, I have to admit that I was more scared preparing for reading "a book about zombies" than actually reading this book and the weirdest thing is that I'm actually a bit sad that it didn't completely freak me out. there really wasn't a scary moment inside. I never felt the slightest bit afraid. For a book with the label [...]


    5. If you enjoy a good tongue-in-cheek mashup of historical British elements meeting modern fantastical ones, this is for you. The people of this wealthy English abbey were full of surprises, and kept me giggling with their diehard aristocratic ways.


    6. Lauren Baratz-Logsted proves once again that she is one of the most versatile and prolific authors out there. She could write (and often does) in any genre and I'd gobble it up!



    7. I just love a good zombie story and Lauren Baratz knows how to write one. I felt so many emotions,funny, scared, thrilled. It was a good thriller of a story.#ZombieAbbey #NetGalley UNTOLD THOUGHTS BOOK BLOG


    8. I could not get into this book, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a wonderful story. It just wasn’t my type. So sadly, we have to part ways.


    9. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book!I first saw this appear as a want to read on my wall, and knew I wanted to read it too. Then I saw it was available to request on Netgalley, and I clicked and hoped. It sounded like just my cup of tea; zombies and a Downton Abbey type feel, but it never quite got there for me. Some of the writing is just TERRIBLE, there is [...]


    10. Thank you Netgalley for a copy of this book. My views are entirely my own.A little bit of Pride and Prejudice, a little bit of Dark Days Club and very much in the vein of Downton Abbey, this book is very much for fans of any of these three. Luckily, I happen to love all three. This book was a delight, the characters vibrant in their own way, and the gore delightfully ghastly. Readers will see much of Austen in the writing and the characters, and even more so Downton Abbey. The three sisters, Kat [...]


    11. Looking for your next Downton Abbey fix? With a few zombies thrown is? Well, look no further than this campy mashup of a Downton-like world and Walking Dead! Some characters from Upstairs may initially come across as difficult to like - because of course they do! - but once they're forced to work together with Downstairs and the villagers to fend off the zombie menace, you really see what they're made of!


    12. Whenever I pick up a book by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, I know I'm in for a good read, and Zombie Abbey is no exception! Lauren is a creative and inventive storyteller and she always has a unique and fresh slant to her stories. Congratulations, Lauren, on another book that's a well-written and entertaining read!


    13. A delight, pure and simple, from page one. Is there any kind of novel, for any age group, that Baratz-Logsted (I LOVE YOU, MICHAEL COLLINS, VERTIGO, THE SISTERS 8 SERIES) can't write? Not that I can tell


    14. Fantastic read! Sharp, funny, swoony, and guaranteed to scratch both your Zombie and your Downton Abbey itches. I loved it!


    15. "She was fair-haired with blue eyes that reflected her intelligence" Ugh, as if being blond haired and blue eyed somehow marks your intelligence?! This book has such high reviews on I was so excited to read it! Unfortunately I DNF'd at about 21% because none of the characters were that interesting and you get everyones perspective including the cats?!?!? I tried to hard to keep going but all I felt I was going to get out of this was a cheap Pride and Prejudice and Zombies knockoff without any g [...]


    16. I received a copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This kind of reminded me of pride and prejudice and zombies! I think that all classic novels should have zombies in them to be honest! It adds some spice!


    17. #ZombieAbbey #NetgalleyThank you to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for the E-ARC copy of this novel.I have read Lauren Baratz-Logsted before, I think her books are creative and imaginative. After having said that this book is right up there with her best. It's a entertaining, fun read. Think British humor and campy horror mixed together. It is not like anything else on the young adult shelves right now. It has a Scooby gang chase to it. I gave it five stars because of it's inventive and [...]



    18. I loved Downton Abbey. I’m “meh” on zombies. I was thinking that these would average out to a “lukewarm” for this speculative book on a Downton-like place being hit by a zombie apocalypse, but instead I enjoyed it immensely. And if you’re a true Downton fan, you will love it, too.I got an advanced copy of this book and devoured it in two days. The only thing that would have stopped me from tearing through it ravenously would have been a pistol shot to the head. What a wonderful yarn! [...]


    19. "Zombie Abbey" is Downton Abbey with zombies (and characters names changed). Although it's been a while since I watched Downton Abbey, all the characters reminded me of specific characters from the show (just names were changed). The difference here is the zombies in the vein of the "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" book published in 2009 (and made into a movie in 2016). As such, I didn't find this to be as novel as other reviewers, but I was surprised at how closely the characters mirrored Down [...]


    20. The setting in the early 1900's Britain. A country estate own by Earl Martin Clarke. In hopes too wed his eldest daughter and keep the estate in the family, they are having company for the weekend. The house is filled with family, servants, and quests. The story of a dead man, who then wasn't dead, and then was dead again ha reached the estate, but most of the group are too busy with the events of the weekend to be bothered and dead people do not come back to life, right? They soon learn that th [...]


    21. This is a nice little story that goes hand in hand with something like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies where a different era tackles the rise of the undead. It’s always so funny to see how something that fits classic and even historical literature pairs with snippets of zombie carnage, granted in this book it’s far more subtle and less walking dead type gore, but it still manages to work. It’s almost humorous to see the characters react to their everyday lives despite having these complica [...]


    22. By turns, clever and funny and sad, Zombie Abbey provides everything a reader might look for. Usually, a book trying to be many things to many people cannot help but fail in one way or another. But the characters in this book manage to find out who they are and what their true strength is, grow up out of privilege and learn there is more to living that position; some learn what love is - and isn't - and still others learn that, however you judge your life, it could always be worse. And it's done [...]


    23. *thank you to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*4 stars.This was SUCH a fun read! If you are a fan of Jane Austen and want to read a twist on stories like her's then I would highly recommend this book. It was funny, silly and at time serious but that just made it even funnier. But with saying that, there was a story plot. It was an absolute delight to read. This was a light hearted book and quite refreshing. I'm adding it to my pile [...]


    24. There is just nothing like a good zombie story when you're just not in the mood for anything else! I really enjoy Lauren Baratz-Logsted's books, and this one is a fun read-- reminded me a lot of Downton Abbey, but with a twist. It was a bit like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but to my mind, this one was better! Cheered me up when everything else just seemed boring.


    25. The rating is based on my personal preference. I am not a fan of the style of writing. I did like Fanny but didn't really connect to any other character. Although so parts were funny and some had action the overall book did not hold my attention. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.


    26. Such a fun read--humor and horror combine in this hybrid romp that satisfies on multiple levels. Do you love British drawing room romance and repartee? Check! Do you love the unrelenting suspense of a good zombie attack? Check! Do you love complex characters and a plot full of surprises and twists? Check!


    27. Lauren Baratz-Logsted never ceases to amaze me with her ability to write convincing characters, juicy plots and extraordinary settings. Her latest, ZOMBIE ABBEY, mashes up the setting and characters of TV's Downton Abbey with a cast of zombies for a memorable romp through Edwardian England.


    28. I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but Lauren Baratz-Logsted is one of my favorite writers, and this book did disappoint! Very clever and funny; I felt myself chuckling as I read. Thanks for another wonderful read, Ms. Baratz-Logstead! Can't wait till your next release!
