Taking a break from vampires, and murderous teens I decided to pick up Plague of the Dead. The novel written by Z. A. Recht is about a viral outbreak that turns the infected into zombies.
There are two types of zombies. One are the Shamblers. These zombies are reanimated corpses who exhibit slow, shuffling feet, and even slower brain activity. The second type of zombies are called Sprinters. These zombies are living people who became infected with the virus. Unlike the Shamblers these zombies are fast, and seem to have some problem solving skills.
The book has many characters, and the book begins after the outbreak. This made it somewhat difficult for me to get into for at least the first 70 pages or so. Between getting confused about what exactly was going on, and trying to figure out who was who in the book took me longer than I expected. Once I got into the book, though, I was hooked!
From the onset I didn’t think I’d get the second novel, Thunder and Ashes, but now that I’m hooked I have to know how this ends. If you are a fan of zombies, and going through withdrawal now that The Walking Dead‘s second season has ended, I definitely recommend picking up a copy of Plague of the Dead.
In the midst of reading Plague of the Dead, I got emailed Pretty Little Liars book 3, “Perfect.” The synopsis according to Amazon says:
In Rosewood, Pennsylvania, four perfect-looking girls aren’t nearly as perfect as they seem.
Aria can’t resist her forbidden ex. Hanna is on the verge of losing her BFF. Emily is freaking out over a simple kiss. And Spencer can’t keep her hands off anything that belongs to her sister.
Lucky me. I know these pretty little liars better than they know themselves. But it’s hard keeping all of their secrets to myself. They better do as I say . . . or else!
Now that season two of Pretty Little Liars has ended, I am excited to catch up on the book series before the show returns to television. I know that the who series are different, but am curious about how much, and in which ways.
If you have read Plague of the Dead let me know what you thought about it in the comments below! Is this series worth continuing?
