Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we showcase books we can't wait to be released.

Title: Dearly Departed
Author: Lia Habel
Release Date: 6 December 2011
(Part of)Summary from Goodreads: A maximalist, post-apocalyptic, neo-Victorian steampunk zombie novel in which a girl, whose blood is impervious to the “Z-virus,” searches for her missing dad, is kidnapped by (good) zombies, falls improbably in love with a rather sweet zombie boy, and sets out to save the world from a zombie plague beyond imagining.
As far as romantic pairings go in the year 2195, you don't get much more unlikely than an upper-class schoolgirl and a poor miner from enemy tribes. Filter in the fact that he's a zombie, and you're definitely talking about star-crossed love.

Why I want it: Post apocalypse? Steampunk? Neo-victiorian? Zombies? Romance? Adventure? Ticks all the right boxes for me!
