Posted October 26, 2020 by Berls in Spooktacular / 4 Comments

Join us for Boo-Cause Reading’s Spooktacular this month, as we talk about various spooky topics. We did a post with the full schedule and topics, so you can easily join in whenever you’d like.

Berls on Zombies

I’m not a big fan of zombies at all. Just not my thing. My step-son did wear me down over the years, though, since Zombies are one of his favorite things. From when he was just 5 or 6 years old I would listen for HOURS as he told me his zombie dreams. And he’s never grown out of his love for them. I did also briefly enjoy The Walking Dead, you know, before it started to suck. The first several seasons were full of drama and really good.

For books, I tend to look the other way when zombies are mentioned because (as I said), I’m just not a big fan. But there are two series that I recommend.

White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

The first is White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland. And if you’re an audio fan, you really must listen to this series. And the series is complete, so you can just binge it (maybe as part of a future Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge series!). You sold yet?

Living with the Dead by Jess Peterson

The other series I kind of stumbled into as a Can You Read a Series in a Month? challenge series this year. I wanted something short, free (it was an audible escape series), and light. So this is not super scary zombies, though there are some intense moments. Mainly, it’s fun with some good humor and some sprinkling of intensity. I enjoyed the series way more than I expected I would, honestly. Here’s my brief series review, since i actually have it published.

About Berls

Michelle adopted me as part of her blog when I decided to close down my blog, Fantasy is More Fun. The blog was dying, but my love of reading and the blogosphere was still strong as ever - so I found my new home here at Because Reading!

I'm not just a book lover, but a one time author (that hopes to be more in the future), wife, mom to the cutest, happiest, best 1 year old and step-mom to the craziest, sweetest 20 year old on the planet. My family mean everything to me and they appear frequently in the Sunday Post with Berls. So grab a glass of wine and chat books, blogging, and family with me!

  1. Like you, I’m not really drawn to zombies, but Angel and her pals are a definite exception. I did like the YA, Warm Bodies, too. I’ll have to check your other series out.
