September Zombies!

Oh my goodness! How could I have forgotten that September is Zombie Appreciation month?!?!? vvB32 has been celebrating zombies all month and is having a giveaway for Zombie vs Unicorns. I'm "dying" to read this one as it has a story from my favorite author, Carrie Ryan. I'm supposed to convince you, the reader, to see things my way and join team zombie...

Carrie Ryan and The Forest of Hands and Teeth series!

What an amazing series and what sparked my interest in "zombie lit." I've always enjoyed reading post apocalyptic all time favorite, Stephen King's The Stand. When I read about Carrie's first book, The Forest of Hands and Teeth I just knew I had to read it. I was hooked and would "kill" to have an ARC of her upcoming third book, The Dark and Hollow Places. To tide me over in the meantime I read Carrie's short story in the anthology Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Romance. Hare Moon gives readers a little look  into Sister Tabitha's world and how she came to be the seemingly cold-hearted Sister she is in TFHT.

If I haven't convinced you so far, check out the trailer for Carrie's second book The Dead-Tossed Waves.

If you want to join in the fun just go here and do the following:

1. Sign guestbook (if you haven't already).

Huzzah for the undead! Carrie Ryan is an amazing writer, i can't wait to read Dead Tossed Waves and Dak and Hollow Places. I should have read it by now, butfrankly, I've been sorta scared to because Forest freaked me out so bad. it was sooooo good though!

You know what my favorite part about The Forest of Hands and Teeth was? When she iluded to the reality we live in with tiny little clues. It could have broken the sense of enchantment, but it only made it scarier and so much better!
