On My Wish List :)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

I can't even begin to list all the books I have on my wish list.  :)  But I thought it would be fun to list one or two at a time.

You might not know this:  I am a huge zombie fan.  Don't ask me way - I'm just a nerd like that.  :)  And I have recently found this author and series.  I have them on my wish list.

Book Blurb:

It's one month after a global disaster. The most "developed" nations of the world have fallen to the shambling zombie masses. Only a few pockets of humanity survive — in places rife with high-powered weaponry, such as Somalia.

In New York City, the dead walk the streets, driven by an insatiable hunger for all things living. One amongst them is different; though he shares their appetites he has retained his human intelligence. Alone among the mindless zombies, Gary Fleck is an eyewitness to the end of the world — and perhaps the evil genius behind it all.

From the other side of the planet, a small but heavily-armed group of schoolgirls-turned-soldiers has come in search of desperately needed medicine. Dekalb, a former United Nations weapons inspector, leads them as their local guide. Ayaan, a crack shot at the age of sixteen, will stop at nothing to complete her mission. They think they are prepared for anything. On Monster Island they will find that there is something worse even than being undead, as Gary learns the true price of survival.

Have you read this series?  What are your thoughts?

I've yet to read one zombie book-I don't know why but it may be because I have a low level of scary. This book does have an interesting premise though!

I've not read this series Michelle but zombies sure seem to be gaining popularity right now. This one sounds good. I'll be interested to read your thoughts when you read it. ;)

I too have a wish list that extends to China.

Reading about zombies doesn't scare me as much as watching them. LOL Half the time I'm peeking through my fingers. :)


I'm sorry you keep having trouble with commenting. :)

I did find that movie and it is icky. Nazi's are horrible all on their own - who in the world would want to make them zombies?


When I watched my first zombie movie with my Mom - it was black and white, on the all night fright channel - back before cable, and the zombies just shuffled around, cause if they walked too fast their parts fell off. ROFL

Today's zombies can run about 40 miles an hour and rip you apart like tearing paper. Ahh, evolution. :)

Thanks for stopping by ladies, have a wonderful day.

Yeah, zombies are up and coming!
I have yet to be interested in reading much about them - but I did love the movie Zombieland! Loved, loved, loved it!

Zombieland was hilarious. I just love Woody Harrelson and Bill Murray was amazing. :)
