Zombies are the new Vampire { The Reading Corner

I think I have read about a million Vampire books over the last few years.Even without meaning to! Last month I picked up A Discovery of Witches. I really do love a good supernatural read...

I was hooked and read the first and second book in a week. Granted I was like "Oh I know!  I will read a book about witches and for sure they won't have all the crazy Vampire love stories that every other book seems to have these days!" Boy was I wrong...a chapter in and Poof!  Let the vampire love story begin.  I just about threw my reader across the room when the vampire showed up.  I was all "Seriously?  Can anyone write a book without a vampire in it anymore?"  but I had bought it and was like "I have read many a bad book might as well keep on reading..." To my surprise I actually fell in love. Especially on the second book with the whole time travel thing...I am a huge Outlander fan ;-) So I didn't manage to get away from Vampire books with that read but....

I admit I just picked it up for my reader since it was free this month on my Amazon Prime membership. I was like "hmmm....wonder what this will be like?" I was hooked almost instantly.  I was very lucky it was a holiday weekend because I couldn't put it down! Zombies...How he made zombies into a totally believable catastrophe is beyond me. I never thought I would read a zombie book and find it...believable.  Ever. I mean I totally read the vampire books and have NEVER been like "oh that could totally be real!"  Ever. But zombies?  After this book...it could totally happen...HAHAHA :-) Now here is the catch...I finished it in like a day and then I was instantly wanting to move onto the next book... after all what happens to them after they survive a zombie apocalypse?  Did they get in the helicopter?  Did they find any other survivors? Oh great there is a book #2!  OH CRAP!!! It's only in Spanish?!?!?!?! Story of my life right there...hahahaha! So I guess until they translate it into English I am just out of luck.   Unless I can talk my step sister Leah into reading it for me and translating.  I may have to talk her into that next Summer if we hit the beach again. Until the I will just have to imagine they survived and are living happily ever...kindof sortof...in zombie land.

Now off to find my next zombie book...cause I am thinking I have been missing out. And yes, clearly I truly enjoy a good mindless, imagination filled read every once in a while. Reading a book that forces you to use your imagination ensures you stay young you know. As long as you have an imagination you never age. That's my story and I am sticking to it ;-)
