I Would Die For You: An Introduction to Zombie Romance

Warm Bodies by Isaac MarionFor quite some time we have enjoyed paranormal romance, time travel romance, and more recently even post-apocalyptic romance, but how about zombies and romance? I can't say I'm a fan of romance between the actual zombies or even humans and zombies but being a big fan of zombie fiction, and combining it with a fantastic sexy romance? Sounds like my kind of read.

This new genre could be titled Zombie-Apocalyptic Romance. By just calling it “zombie romance” it gives the impression that it’s a romance between zombies, and for the majority of books this isn't the case. And because most people's response to zombie sex is “eeewwwww” (my thoughts exactly) they end up ignoring the genre completely, therefore missing out on the books where the romance is between two people, just set in a zombie-apocalyptic world.

Although I am one of those who have a hard time with the actual zombie being the primary focus of a heroine/heroes affection, I do love it when my human h/h are fighting against the zombies, all the while fancying the pants off each other and wanting to have lots of steamy sex. One zombie/human love story that did work and was my first foray into zombie-apocalyptic romance was Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion.

As you probably know, this was one of the most anticipated movie adaptations of 2013. It's a quirky romance between “R” (our zombie hero) and Julie (our human heroine). There are no sexy-times, there's no real angst, and it certainly isn't erotic. But it's a sweet romance in a story that’s inspiring and makes you think about humanity.

The Walking Dead: A Budding Romance, or Just Wishful Thinking?

After finishing Season 2 of AMC’s The Walking Dead, I found myself obsessing about what might happen in Season 3—not about next season’s anticipated prison backdrop or how the death of Dale or Shane will ultimately effect the group, but what I presumed was my own flight of fancy, romanticizing the relationship between Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier. As evidenced by the clip above, I am not the only one who is anticipating this new love amongst the gore.
