Fa la la la Follow Friday...

Good morning and the merriest of Christmases to you, my wonderous (wounderous?) zombie horde. I hope you are out there singing zombie carols to make the season bright. Deck the Halls with Parts of Wally and all that. It brings a tear to my eye.

This is a light Follow Friday, but I hope you stay a moment and say hello. It is nice to have guests. Promise not to bite.

The question of the week:

What are you doing for this wondrous holiday?

I myself will be playing with my new copy of Zombie Felties and thinking up new designs for my Christmas tree. Next year, I want a zombie themed one. It's only right, after all.

Merry Christmas!

Awesome and freaky cupcakes...

Ok, so even zombie girls bake. I found this amazing book and had to share it with the horde.

Let's say you want a brain theme for your next zombie party. The perfect cupcake is there! Broken glass theme? Yep. You got it. Zombie fingers reaching from the grave, radioactive waste, you name it, its there. My ultimate freaky cupcake favorite is the heart. Not exactly hearts and flowers either folks.

Check it out! It's frightfully good fun.

Fa la la la Follow Friday...

Good morning Zombie Horde. I hope this wonderful Friday finds you chipper with all of your parts still intact and  festive holiday grins on your faces. Now remember, no biting the guests. It's rude. We get lonely here, so please leave a comment and I promise no biting. I see you over there! Yes, you. No drooling. And put your eyeball back in. That's just disgusting. This is a family friendly zone here. You want that kind of zombie stuff, you know where to go. I'm serious. Jeez. Sorry. Now, where were we...

Oh yeah. Leave me comments and follower love. The question of the week is:

Did your college years help with the job you have now.

My answer. Zombie poodles don't really take into account that you'd like a future in higher education or anything like that. They just sort of chomp and run. I'm just happy I still have the use of most of my brain, and my eyeballs are still where they belong. It's not easy to look this good. Let me tell you.

Follow Friday for the Zombie Horde!
Greetings zombie followers. It is time for Follow Friday. This week brings us to a new blog Another Book Junkie.  Stop by and give Amanda a follow. No biting please.

The question of the week is:

Do you have an author you think is great that is under appreciated?
I would love to hear what you think! Personally, I think Carrie Ryan is amazing with her Forest of Hands and Teeth. It should be a movie. Seriously. The woman can write about crunching zombie fingers better than anyone I know.

If you are visiting, stop for a moment and leave a comment. Share the love and be a follower.

Monster High

First, let me just tell you how much I liked Monster High. It was great. I listened to it on audio and that my zombie friends, was cool. Frankie Stein is my favorite character. She has style, mint green skin and gets to charge herself like a giant cell phone. Awesome. Today, I discovered that there is a website devoted entirely to the series. Yes, the first book is only the beginning. They have dolls too. Mattel has done a fab job of making some cute monster girl dolls. I think I want one. Okay. Yeah, I totally do. You can sort of see why by the photo of Frankie above. 

What I Liked:
The story of Frankie Stein trying to fit in with her lovely mint green skin really hit home for me. Being a zombie girl isn't easy you know. The scene at the dance was really what sealed it for me. Wow. Didn't see that one coming.

What I Didn't:
Only that it ended and I have to wait for the second book.

Overall impressions:
Uber cool and I want to add it to my bookshelves one of these days. I checked it out using my library's ebranch system.

Zombie cupcake takes over the world.

Okay. I know. It's the dumbest post you've seen lately. True. I just liked the cupcake. He's kind of cute in a blood dripping from his little pink frosted mouth kind of way. Admit it. You like him too.

Monster books in my mailbox.

Members of the horde, lend me your ears. Keep them on your head please. I totally saw that!

Here are two awesome and cool vampire books to check out.

Bloodthirsty made me laugh so I had to buy it. Fake vampire love. Awww!

IDracula is doubly cool because if you have an IPad or an iPhone, there is an app in the app store. It's free, so check it out.

Happy reading!

Holiday Reading Challenge update.

If you would like to join in on the Holiday Reading Challenge, pop over to the link above and sign up.

Hello again zombie horde. I have found the perfect holiday book for your ghoulish celebrations. All of your favorite Christmas carols altered a bit for some holiday zombie fun.

Favorite songs:

Deck the Halls with Parts of Wally
Snacking Around the Christmas Tree
Good King Wenceslas Tastes Great
The Zombie Christmas Song
Rudolph the Zombie Reindeer

Oh my gosh, there are so many. I hocked my coffee money for this one, kiddies. A total wonder of holiday joy and merriment.

A quote from We Three Spleens: (sung to the tune of We Three Kings")

"We three spleens, you know where we are:
Two in the kitchen and one in the car.
We are still eating, people are fleeing.
Let's eat the one in the car.

O-oooh, spleens of wonder, they taste right.
We could eat spleens all day and night.
We're still eating, people screaming.
Let's eat until first light."

This book by Michael P. Spradlin is a classic holiday romp through zombiedom. My hero, Christopher Moore provides the introduction. Illustrations are by Jeff Weigel.

Holiday Reading Challenge update.

Greetings zombie horde. I have completed my first read for the Holiday reading challenge. The Zombie Night Before Christmas.

What I Liked:  I loved the zombiefied rendition of a great holiday classic. It is The Night Before Christmas, complete with the walking dead and Santa.

What I Didn't: Okay, so it was a little gory. The dark side of zombiedom can be though.

Overall thoughts: It was a great zombie Christmas story, sometimes a little gory. These zombies aren't as particular about biting peeps as I am. Jeez. Biting Santa. No manners at all.
