    If I can recommend one YA mystery to you, it’s this one. I’m honestly not usually a big fan of YA mysteries—most of them fall short for me in a big way—but this was such a wildly enjoyable, hilarious, heartbreaking, and gorgeous little story. While most mystery novels are about the destination (discovering the whodunit), this one is about the journey, and the things Mila learns along the way. It’s about grieving, friendship, overcoming ...

    It’s good to know that if I had died from boredom reading this book, Mila Flores would have brought me back to life (and my ancestors, too, probably), but I’m rather glad I didn’t become a zombie creature roaming the living world for seven days.Still, it’s very underwhelming.And shocking that a story with such an original and curious premise can be so unimaginative, contain such stereotypical characters, and be not at all funny, despite t...

    Oh my god, you guys, this book was such a delight. With sarcastic, witty narration, a compelling mystery, and an on-point vibe, I was completely impressed.Undead Girl Gang follows Mila, who brings back three girls from the dead: astrology-obsessed and complicated June, joyful and hilarious Dayton, and Riley, Mila’s best friend back from the dead. First of all, you guys, I binged this. I haven’t binged a book in a day in around a month, so...

    I’m feeling SO MANY THINGS. I adored the characters, but I feel like the story was a little lacking. I still highly recommend because the writing is fantastic, but it didn’t quite live up to the expectations that I had after completely adoring The Only Thing Worse Than Me is You. Womp :c(Although clearly still fantastic bc 4 stars but ya feel me)

    This book turned out to be everything I expected, plus a little more. It’s such a fabulously-written murder mystery with layers of wit, grief, and girls supporting girls, and it’s SO enjoyable to read.ALSO. DO YOU SEE THAT COVER. I LOVE ENAMEL PINS.🌹 WHAT I LIKED - It’s an extremely well-written mystery? I don’t usually read murder mysteries, but I can spot a good one when I read one, and this is a good one. While my lowkey suspicions ...

    Lilly Anderson deftly created a well thought out and original story in Undead Girl Gang! So this was honestly quite an unexpected read for me. The basic story, in a nutshell, follows Mila (Camilla Flores) who brings back her best friend, Riley & 2 mean girls (Dayton & June) from the dead after the 3 girls die within a week of each other in what the police claim are suicides. Mila knows Riley would never kill herself and she is determined to uncov...

    4.5 stars “So what are you going to do about it? Stop sitting back and waiting for everyone else to do the dirty work for you. You aren’t a princess. You’re a walking, talking dead girl. And the sooner you get angry about that, the sooner you can do something other than read through spells you don’t even fucking believe in!” Yes!! I really had no clue what to expect when I started this. In fact, I tried lowering my expectations. That wa...

    In UNDEAD GIRL GANG, a fat black mexican wiccan teen resurrects a couple of girls by accident when she's trying to find out what happened to her late best friend Riley. This is the first book by Anderson that I'm reading and I'm absolutely blown away. She has a writing style that I absolutely love, effortlessly mixing laugh-out-loud humor with extremely nuanced dissections of complex topics such as grief, mental illness (PTSD and depression), fat...
  • Lily ☁️
    ➳ 1 1/2 starsI’m very well aware that Undead Girl Gang has a paranormal setting, but this is one of the most ridiculous and far-fetched stories I’ve ever read (and I’m not talking about the magical, reviving-dead-girls aspect here), with a murder mystery that is almost comical in its lack of mystery—and not merely because of its predictability.I mean, I’m sorry. All I’m seeing are four and five star ratings, even from friends whose ...

    I’m gonna need more girl gangs and lesbian witches in my life from now on.This book is definitely not one I would usually read - but I loved it!Mila accidentally resurrects her best friend and 2 other girls from her school, with the intention of discovering the murder.I had no clue who the villain was - that was one hell of a curve ball for me.Also I loved the character development and the honest assessment of high school. Plus the honesty of d...

  • Book of Secrets
    I don't read a lot of YA books, but every once in a while one comes along that catches my eye – especially one that sounds like a combination of Heathers and The Craft. I wasn't wowed by the book, though it was a quirky read, with some fun parts and sad moments too. With such an interesting premise – a novice witch raising a gang of zombie girls from the dead to solve their murders – I was hoping for a little more. I'm bummed that the myste...
  • Zoraida
    My love for witches is fed by this wonderful book. Themes of letting go, friendship, and love.
  • Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books)
    This was fun! I was initially drawn to this book by its awesome cover and when I read the book's summary, I knew that I needed to have this book in my life. This book had so many elements that I love including witchcraft and undead characters. This ended up being a really quick read for me and I found myself liking the book more and more as I worked my way through the story. I found this to be a really entertaining and original novel.This book ho...

    "I know that the color of his eyes is the same color that I think shivers would be if you could see them" I LITERALLY CANNOT EVEN RIGHT NOW This book was so damn good. To start, I think the idea of this story was absolutely phenomenal! Mila's best friend, Riley, dies suddenly during the funeral of another student from Cross Creek High School, making her the third death claimed to be suicide. Because Mila and Riley were Wiccan, she knew she had t...

    5.27.18Because I'm trash for this book, I decided to reread it only weeks after originally reading it, so of course still....holy shit. 5.12.18holy shit.

    3.5 starsI don't know what to think about this, I will not give a big review.Just going to say this took a turn that I did not see coming and it blew my mind. To tell the truth, I didn't like everything that happened, somethings didn't have to happen the way they did.It was a good story with good characters (that sometimes made me mad) and I enjoyed it.
  • Katie
    3.5 stars! Not my favorite, but fun!
  • Kate (GirlReading)
    3.75* With a diverse cast of characters, witchcraft, murder, zombies and mystery, Undead Girl Gang was an incredibly fun and unique read. I do feel it lacked suspense in parts and a few areas of the plot fell a little short but with that being said, this was undoubtedly entertaining and enjoyable. It was intersectional in addressing bigotry towards topics such as racism and fatphobia, whilst at the same time, following a literal group of undead g...

    Star Rating: 4.5 stars fo sho!So, after reading so many series and long books in a row I needed a short novel as a break, and boy did I find a gem! I absolutely loved this. Girl powerrr!I could give it 4 stars just based on the, um, not the most... proper language use, as I curse like a sailor in real life! Probably more to come but I’m movin’ on! Trying to pick my next book!Probably full RTC but no promises haha
  • Stacee
    Zombies are my jam and when I saw Lily was going to do something zombie-like, I was 1000000% here for it. I loved Mila. She’s snarky and maybe a little hardened, but she was a genuinely nice person and super easy to root for. The girls who come back are interesting and proof that you can’t always judge a person by what you hear about them. I won’t go into more details because spoilers and all that. Plot wise, I was instantly hooked. I loved...

    Trigger Warnings: death, self-harm, murder, suicide, descriptions of the dead, depression, grief, one joke about PTSD that made me iffyTHIS REVIEW OF UNDEAD GIRL GANG WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED HEREI, unfortunately, was incredibly excited for Undead Girl Gang. The cover is amazing and I was so excited by the premise of the main character being unlikeable – and she was, she was sarcastic and not a ‘typical’ MC. I really hate the fact that I had b...
  • Melanie (TBR and Beyond)
    “Spells are just prayers with more steps and a name that scares people.” This book was so much freaking fun! Witches? Check! Spells gone awry? Check. Murder? Check, check, check! This is a great little gem that everyone should give a try. I knew when I read the synopsis for this book that I had to have it in my grabby little hands on it as soon as possible. Of course, it then took me a couple of months to get to reading it because I never ha...
  • Sarah Churchill
    Zombies and witches meets mean girls. It could have been super cheesy, but somehow it wasn't. I really enjoyed it and read it in just a couple of sittings.I love that topics like body positivity and how it's ok to identify as 'fat' was covered a few times, as well as bullying and a few other themes that never felt preachy or like a lesson, it just let you live through the experiences so you'd actually learn and understand.The only character I did...
