A to Z April (last post!!!) - Z: Zombies!!! (and last day for giveaway)





Well, this is it.  My last post for the A to Z Challenge, and I'm pleased to say I did it!!   And I'm excited to get to finish with one of my current favorite topics to read about or watch on tv or in movies, zombies.  So below, you can see 5 of my favorite zombie books/series.


1.

I am a huge, huge fan of these books.  And the author, as I even got to help name one of his recent e-novellas (short stories) for this series.  Really great teen zombie series.  He also writes adult novels like this, I just have yet to read them.

2.

I actually liked this one, and while I'm not quite sure how close the movie was or was not, since I haven't read the book in a while, I liked the movie as well.

3.

Another of my favorite teen zombie series.

4.

This is a Stephen King book that I think would have made an excellent movie, and I also feel you don't hear much about this one, but I really liked it.

5.

And yet another of my favorite teen zombie series.  This one, as well as the Rot and Ruin series, is made up of very large books, like 400-500 pages.  I feel they are well done, and not boring at any point, but just a heads up if you're going to give them a try.

Those are my top 5 zombie books.  I love the tv show The Walking Dead, but actually have yet to read any of the graphic novels it is based on, or the new novelizations, so couldn't include them in my book choices, as I'm doing ones I've actually read.

One more day to enter my 900 Bloglovin follower giveaway HERE, and there aren't many entries, so you have a good chance!

  2. For some reason I don't remember Ashes having zombies; I remember the survivalist stuff and the cult. I still think of The Forest of Hands and Teeth. What an unsettling book. I read the whole series. And World War Z is fantastic.

    1. Yeah, Ashes has zombies, that's why they had to have special towns with guards and stuff. Certain people turned into them after whatever happened, the electric pulse or whatever, at the beginning of the first one. Thanks for stopping by!

    Congratulations for becoming an A-Z survivor, Lisa.

    1. I usually do, but not really a fan of the Dark Tower series, and haven't had the urge to try the one about the Kennedy assassination. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I haven't read any of them. I've only just started to read Zombie stories. I particularly like Eleri Stone's
    Reaper's Touch". And there's sequel on the way. :-) I wish I'd started watching The Walking Dead when it forst came on. I don't like to start a series in the middle, so maybe I'l get it on Netflix. I am a huge fan of the movie, Zombieland. And...the original Night of the Living Dead was filmed very close to where I live. Whew! That's it. All I know about Zombies, summed up in one paragraph. Ha~ Congratulations for making it through the alphabet!

    1. Haven't heard of Reaper's Touch, I'll have to check it out! Thanks! I love Zombieland, that and Shaun of the Dead are probably my favorite zombie movies.
