Holiday Break Reading Challenge Activity #9

Holiday Break Reading Challenge Activity #9

trusty Holiday Break Reading Challenge participants - here is your challenge.  You have two choices.  You need to create a post on your blog about one of two things.  
1 - You can feature Christopher Moore talking about books you've already read or ones you'd like to read
OR
2 - You can go a totally different direction and create a post about books about ZOMBIES - either ones you've already read or ones you want to read.


I know, I know...this isn't really sticking to the Christmas spirit, but... oh well, maybe you'll win a prize.


Be sure to link your post to this one using Mr. Linky.

I have only read 3 Zombie books(that I can remember) And they are all favorites:

First:



I believe this is the first zombie book that I have ever read. I enjoyed it very much.  Lots of action. Lots of death(didn't like that part). Some romance.

Second:



I totally enjoyed this book! I laughed out loud! The original Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is my absolute favorite book. I totally thought I would hate this book but it was surprisingly entertaining and humorous.

Third:



This is the companion novel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth. It was pretty good but I was disappointed in the fact that it wasn't a sequel. I would have loved for it to have picked up where The Forest of Hands and Teeth left off. It had lots of action, romance etc. to keep the pages turning. A terrible ending though. I think the author has re-done the ending. I have read an Advanced Reading Copy of this.

Lastly: I know that I said I read 3 but I have attempted to read 4. This last book I tried to read but had to put it down. I know several people who have totally enjoyed it but I couldn't get past the ritualistic events that took place at the very beginning of the book. So it was one that I had to set down. Probably will not pick it up again.

  1. Ritualistic stuff in YOU ARE SO UNDEAD TO ME? Hmmm, I don't remember anything like that. I'll have to go back and look before I read the sequel, UNDEAD MUCH?
    Thanks for posting.

  2. Maybe ritualistic was the wrong word. I didn't care for the whole walking around the grave and chanting some kind of voodooish stuff to keep the "undead" in the grave. Very witchcraftish and that is not something I like. So that's what I meant.
