Zombies

Should I be embarrassed by my current addiction to Zombie Apocalypse novels? Probably. But I'll keep reading them anyway!
They all have the same theme: groups of people on the run or hiding from the relentless Undead and doing everything humanly possible to survive against all odds. Some books have a more humourous tone, while others are deadly serious. The main similarity is that they are so exciting I can't put them down. Terrific escapism.

Where it all began a couple of years ago. "The Forest of Hands and Teeth" and its two sequels "The Dead Tossed Waves" and "The Dark and Hollow Places"

Read this one last year. I was initially put off by the title but ended up loving this.

Finished this yesterday. Three more to go in this series.

Over half way through this and I only started it last night. Another dodgy title but it kind of fits with the biting wit featured in this book. Love it. 

This one is next in my reading pile. Can't wait to see what this author's approach will be.

***Edited to add that I've finally put a list of books I've read/ am reading this year in the sidebar. Just to show that I do read other genres too!

I quite liked the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series as well, sacrilegious as it is.
