Zombie Reading Challenge 2013 at BookChickCity

For this first Monday post, I'm sure my fellow Z girls will want to join me in the 2013 Zombie Reading Challenge over at BookChickCity.

I joined last year, and was amazed at the number of zombie books out there! It's like a Z horde that keeps coming and coming and coming...

As I was writing my own zombie book, GIRL Z: MY Life as a Teenage Zombie, I didn't start reading any Z books until I was finished and began shopping the book early last year. I didn't want to get "tainted" by anyone else's ideas. But once I began reading--wow! I now have 55  books listed on my  Zombie shelf at Goodreads - and I've barely scratched the surface, nor read most of them. And I keep adding more...

Two (of the many) I enjoyed so far were:

The book that blew me away? I loved the textures in DEAD OF NIGHT by Jonathan Maberry.

Also enjoyable, with a unique Western twist and different take on zombie infection, was WANTED: DEAD OR UNDEAD by Angela Scott.

** Got any of your own favorite zombie reads? Please share!


  1. I wouldn't make much of a Zombie, unless you count the way I walk around half asleep most of the time!
