The Gothic Reading Challenge

Good evening zombie horde. I have brought you the perfect reading challenge. Gothic books. What could possibly be better? Nothing! Well, maybe some zombie Christmas carols, but I digress.

This challenge takes place from January 1st- December 31st, 2011. That means that we have something wonderful to look forward to next year! So no staying out late chasing New Years revelers, we must start reading! If it's Gothic it works. Just head over to the link above and list your blog and make a comment. Let the host know about what cool Gothic titles you come up with and your reading progress. Remember, Gothic. No Dr. Seuss or Goodnight Moon. We are going for moody desperation here. We're zombies, people. We know a little about desperation. Do me proud and let me know what titles you pick.

I am going to try for at least 10. Happy, (wait, I mean Moody) reading!

Zombies 12 months a year!

So I was at the store today trying to restrain myself from munching down on badly behaving holiday shoppers, when I saw these two calendars.

Both are a little gory to be sure, but then again the dark side of zombiedom can be a little messy. They are at least smirk worthy. If any of you have seen other fun zombie artifacts, I would love to hear it!

Good night for now. May you eat and not get eaten. Happy Thanksgiving.

Our first holiday zombie book reading challenge!

Good morning zombie horde. Today we focus on the joys of the season and a new reading challenge. Here are my first two picks. They are positively ghoulish with their holiday joyfulness, but totally in keeping with our theme here. On more than one occasion, I ended up laughing so hard at one of the Christmas carols, I thought my nose was going to fall right off. And such a lovely nose, so I tried to contain my giggles. I will update with reviews and additional readings, but pick these up at your local bookstore and smile. Happy holidays, wonderful zombie followers. Check out the link if you want to participate in the challenge. The more the merrier. Stop in and leave a comment. Better yet, if you are new to the horde, drop me a follow. I will return the favor. (And I even promise not to bite or anything.)

Waiting for The Dark and Hollow Places

In a world where the Mudo rule, and humans have to be careful that they don't step too close to the fences or stand unguarded by the oceans, Carrie Ryan brings us a new book, The Dark and Hollow Places. I for one am waiting with bated breath.  (Well, if I had to breathe, honestly.)

The descriptive writing that Ryan uses to bring us into the story had my hair standing on end even before that poodle bit me. The thing that sits in my mind the most is the sound of the fingers reaching through chain link fence trying desperately to reach the humans inside. Can't blame them really, but I digress. I remember going to bed and dreaming about it, but as soon as I woke up, I wanted to go back there. In Zombies vs. Unicorns I was so happy that Ryan appeared with Team Zombie to bring us another adventure.

If you haven't read these great books, give it a try. What a great movie they would make!

Zombies vs. Unicorns

 The eternal question: Zombies vs. Unicorns. Which side is better?

 If you haven't read Zombies vs. Unicorns then you are totally missing out. You can guess which side I'm on. To be fair, the unicorns have some pretty good stories in there too, but since I am a zombie, well...The snarky comments made by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier at the introduction to each story are worth reading just on their own.

My favorite unicorn story has to be by Diana Peterfreund. I love anything she writes. Her The Care and Keeping of Your Baby Killer Unicorn kept me on the edge of my seat. Princess Prettypants by Meg Cabot was another. My least favorite was A Thousand Flowers  by Margo Lanagan. I kind of agree with Justine that this story is just plain gross. I would skip it if I were you.

 The coolest zombie story had to be Children of the Revolution by Maureen Johnson. I loved the little zombie kids. Very original. Carrie Ryan doesn't dissapoint either with Bougainvillea. A nice revisit to the land of the Mudo.

That's all I'm going to say. If I keep going, I will spoil what surprises the authors have in store for you. Please comment and let me know what you think. Zombies vs. Unicorns is not for the faint of heart, and it pretty much isn't for kids, but for the rest of us, happy reading.

In my mailbox #1

This week we will do our first installment of In My Mailbox.

I checked out a copy of I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It from the library and it was a riot.

Popular girl gets the zombie. Sort of.

This book was cute, original and I am so not giving the plot away peeps. You will have to read it yourself to find out the dirt. (grave dirt that is) So get yourself a copy and check it out.

For those of you new to In My Mailbox, check out the link below and visit the Story Siren. She rocks. List your blog and what you got to read this week. Check out some other blogs. It's fun.

Feed your zombie!

This movie is the best zombie movie ever!

When I first heard about this movie, I honestly thought it was about a dog. Fido. Right? It sounds like a dog. It totally wasn't. It was like Leave it to Beaver with zombies. I grinned through the whole movie.

Plants vs. Zombies, the best game ever!

If you haven't yet played this game, you totally need to. The zombies just keep coming. They aren't as cute as me, but they have cool hats. Traffic cones. Who would have thought?

Zombies rule.

Okay, so now that I totally am a zombie, I can say this. In the battle between zombies and the other undead, we are the coolest. Check out my review for Zombies vs. Unicorns on the sidebar. It totally rocks. Guess which side I'm on!

Amanda Feral Rocks!

Check out the Mary Henry website!

One of my favorite snark masters!

 This picture is from Mark Henry's Goodreads profile. He is one of the coolest, snarkiest zombie loving guys I know. He can get a little adult for you kiddos out there, but for all you grown up types, go out today and get yourself some of his books. He is currently working on some YA and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next!

Welcome to my blog.

Zombie poodles are the devil. He looked so cute when he came up and started nuzzling my leg. Even cuter when he licked my hand when I reached down to pet him. Damned if he didn't bite the crap out of me and start chomping.

Let's just say I haven't been the same since. Most people think that zombies walk around all the time screaming about brains and moaning. I only do that at dinner time. The rest of the time when I am not at work contemplating munching down on some unsuspecting customer who just gave me a hard time, I am blogging about books. I look normal. Act normal. So far nothing is falling off, but I moisturize like crazy.

So if you want to hang out with me while I review all the cool zombie stuff I find, great. Promise I won't try to take a bite.
