The Undead & Well Read

Well it's October, and you know what that means?  Ghosts, goblins, vampires, and let’s not forget zombies! It's the time of year when we have the excuse to watch the thrilling scary movie, and better yet read a book to scare us to death!

We are not going to talk about vampires nor movies.  No, we are going to talk about the undead; zombies and the books about them! We have these ghoulish and gory books for all audiences in our catalog too! So, let’s go use our brains before we lose them!

For adults we have plenty of zombie stories to give you goosebumps in more ways than one, here is a great one:
 Pride Prejudice & Zombies.   

A zombie plague has stretched across the country but it is not 2021 it is early 19th century England.  There is chaos, greed, death, zombies and a classic tale.  Why you ask? Because you’re reading a classic parody mashed together by Seth Graham-Smith and Jane Austin. 

If you are looking for some chills, maybe a little blood and gore, and a classic story then Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is the book to read this month.

Of course, for the young adult sector we have another great selection of chilling tales, and here is a ghoulish one: Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Mayberry

It's the first of a five-book series.  The main character Benny lives in a zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America.  A world where every teenager has to find a job before they turn fifteen or else get their rations reduced.  Of course, zombie hunting is one of the main jobs at hand, and Benny does not have a lot of other choices. There is a lot more going on in the story than jobs and zombies, but you will have to read it to rip into the brains of it.
