Zombies, Zombies and More Zombies



I have been busy reading.  What have I been reading?  Zombies of course.  Well that and some mixed with other supernaturals. 

Let’s start with warm bodies.  I really wanted to read the book before I go and watch the movie.  I was afraid the director would destroy the story line which happens often.  I haven’t completed the book yet.  It’s a different take on the whole end of the world the zombies are here.  You start out in the mind of a zombie and how they spend their day.  There is some mild humor.  Not as funny as zombie land but having this sick sense of humor I can see some mild humor.  Pretty much the main character get’s a crush on a human.  Who begins teaching him to be human again.  Not a bad concept but a little slow moving.  Its not one of those books that can put down.  More like a nice book that you put down and are happy to pick up again.  I will let you know how I rate it when I am finish.

The next book Flesh and Bone is my all time favorite Zombie series a definite must read.  In fact I read it a while back and impatiently waiting for the 4th book to come out Fire and Ash.  Which won’t be until Sept 2013.  Meaning I need to find other zombie books to bid my time. Here is some info on it brought to you from goodreads…another great book app. 

“But the Ruin is far more dangerous than any of them can imagine. They are hunted by fierce animals escaped from zoos and circuses. They must raid zombie-infested towns for food and medical supplies. They discover the very real truth in the old saying: In the Rot & Ruin…everything wants to kill you.”

My new favorite Zombie series is first days.  It’s nice to have some decent female leads.  One’s that are whiny. Now this series is the type that you can’t wait to read the next book.  I am actually waiting to read book 3 and biding my time with warm bodies to help savor the series a little more.  Here is some info on the book via goodreads

“Katie is driving to work one beautiful day when a dead man jumps into her car and tries to eat her.  That same morning, Jenni opens a bedroom door to find her husband devouring their toddler son.
Fate puts Jenni and Katie—total strangers—together in a pickup, fleeing the suddenly zombie-filled streets of the Texas city in which they live. Before the sun has set, they have become more than just friends and allies—they are bonded as tightly as any two people who have been to war together.
During their cross-Texas odyssey to find and rescue Jenni’s oldest son, Jenni discovers the joy of watching a zombie’s head explode when she shoots its brains out. Katie learns that she’s a terrific tactician—and a pretty good shot.
A chance encounter puts them on the road to an isolated, fortified town, besieged by zombies, where fewer than one hundred people cling to the shreds of civilization.
It looks like the end of the world. But Katie and Jenni and many others will do whatever they have to to stay alive. Run, fight, pick each other up when they stumble, fall in love…anything is possible at the end of the world”


Last is a nurse book with a supernatural twist.  It’s about this nurse who works on Y7 a ward that real world doesn’t know about.  It’s where sups like werewolves, vampires, shift changes and even zombies go when they get sick or injured.  I love the part where she is all dressed up in her sterile garb holding a tranq gun just in case the werewolves sedative wears off while changing his dressings.  I love the nursing aspect and the supernaturals in the story.  I would love to work there…lol

So there are my stories…please if you have any great ones to read leave me a comment.
