I often get asked to recommend zombie books. (gee I wonder why?) While I am not as well versed in main stream zombie books as the Bookish Brunette (she is the Zombie Queen, ya know?). I have read some amazingly epic zombie reads. Both traditionally published and indie. I thought I would put up this quick guide to some great z books.
Zombie Apocalypse: These are the books in which the zombies are every where. Every turn. Lurking in the background and free to eat brains. The order I list these has no bearing whatsoever on my feelings for the book btw. Also I realize some are not traditional zombie tales ie Enclave and The Other Life...Zombie really is a general term that sorta includes all of these books.
This is not an all inclusive list of all the zombie books I have read. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I think these books are excellent.
Next up is a list of books that have zombies in them. I guess we could call them non apocalyptic zombie reads. They usually zombie characters being controlled by a necromancer or government.
While not traditionally a zombie book I'd feel remiss if I leave Alexia Purdy's Reign of Blood off of this list. Her rabid vampires are such a brilliant mix of zombie and vampire. Zompires!!!!
I am not a fan of the Zombie Love Interest....however these books are super popular. I did like the first book in this series but was unable to finish the second.
The amount of books here should keep you all in zombie heaven until I put up zombie books part 2. I'm already thinking of a bunch of books I missed on this list. :D (like Amanda Hocking's Hollowmen?)
Until next time.......
