Zombies vs Unicorns edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier

I was pretty stoked when I saw Zombies vs Unicorns. I loved Holly Black's other anthology, Geektastic (check out my thoughts here). I have to say I'm totally Team Unicorn. Ever since I was a little I've loved unicorns. Like this unicorn:
Not like the unicorns in Zombies vs Unicorns. These are hardcore unicorns. In The Care And Feeding Of Your Baby Killer Unicorn, there are killer unicorns. Although I loved the story. Wen has an affinity to unicorns but her parents think unicorns are from the devil. Good times.
But I also really enjoyed the zombie stories. The Children of the Revolution was awesome. Especially since they kind of lampoon a famous couple. I think it's this one, but could also be this one.
All the stories were funny, some of them dark. Definitely worth your time to read them especially if you like zombies or unicorns, YA fiction, or funny stories that skewer popular culture.
