Think back on all the books you've read dealing with animals. What are your favorites. You can choose one or more than one. It doesn't matter to me. BUT, please make these REAL animals. No werewolves or other fantastical creatures.

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
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:
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.
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.
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.

The idea is to pick 3 or 4 books from your "to-read" pile and create a sentence out of them using just those books. This is my attempt:
My sentence is: The Rainmaker Sent The White Darkness.

After further investigation she finds that the girl is homeless and has been staying at the Y after hours. Heather, confronted with her own childhood memories of abandonment is forced to exercise a muscle that she hasn't been able to use for a very long time-her heart.

I love missionary stories! I love to read about someone going to a foreign land and presenting The Word to people groups that have never known the outside world. Peace Child is about the Sawi tribe in what was then called Papua New Guinea. They were head hunters and cannibals. Don Richardson, his wife Carol and their 7 month old son lived among them for 15 years. Many Sawi became Christians and gave up their old practices. Don and his family were able to show the Sawi that Jesus is the ultimate "Peace Child"
