Manga Review: The Promised Neverland V 2 by Kaiu Shirai & Posuka Demizu @shonenjump @vizmedia


May Contain Spoilers

This is a really unique series. I don’t even know how to categorize it. Horror for sure. Sci-fi? Dystopian? Post-apocalyptic? We have been shown a tiny part of the world that the orphans of Grace Field House reside in, and I am so curious to learn about what lies on the other side of the wall. Monsters, we know. That eat children. Maybe I don’t want to see that, after all.

Manga Review: Highschool of the Dead V 3 by Daisuke Sato & Shouji Sato


May Contain Spoilers

I love zombie stories, and a recent trip to the library netted a few volumes of Highschool of the Dead. I started reading this when it first came out, but stopped. I didn’t remember much about the plot, and once I started reading volume 3, I understood why. This is a totally forgettable story, with confusing dialog, panty shots, and enormous, deformed boobs. Maybe I shouldn’t have checked them from the library after all.

Review: Dread Nation by Justina Ireland


May Contain Spoilers

I am a sucker for zombie books, so when I heard about Dread Nation, I was all over it. This is set in an alternate America, when the dead started walking – and eating the living – during Gettysburg. That kind of put the brakes on the strife between the States, and they settled the Civil War to band together and fight the dead. Jane, the protagonist, was born just before the dead rose up, and she hasn’t known any other life than one that involves fighting the undead.

Manga Review: The Promised Neverland V 1 by Kaiu Shirai & Posuka Demizu @shonenjump


May Contain Spoilers

This was a free read at VizMedia.com (until 2/4).  I realized the first volume was a free read the day before it expired, and I’m so glad that I made the time to read it. I didn’t know anything about the story going in, and by the end of the first chapter, I was like – whoa. This was a fast read, with horror, suspense, and fantasy elements. I’m hooked.

Audio Review: ZOM-B Mission by Darren Shan


May Contain Spoilers

I started listening to this on audio, and yet again, reached a point where I switched over to the ebook. I have been incredibly fortunate that the library has had the volumes when I needed them, and I started borrowing several volumes at a time. ZOM-B is a fun series with quick episodes, so it pays to have several of them on hand.

Audio Review: ZOMB-B Baby by Darren Shan


May Contain Spoilers

I didn’t enjoy ZOM-B Baby as much as previous volumes. It seemed really, really short, or maybe I was just getting fed up with B. She carries such a massive chip on her shoulder, it’s a wonder she is mobile at all. She has what I call a piss poor attitude, and maybe after listening to two volumes in a row of her snapping, growling, and barking at everyone around her, I was wondering why anyone is friendly with her at all.

Audio Review: ZOM-B Angels by Darren Shan


Contains Spoilers

This series! It’s so addicting, but aggravating at the same time. ZOM-B is a 12 book series, and each volume is about 160 pages. They all have ended on cliffhangers, and when I was first reading the series, a majority of the books weren’t out. Now that the series has been released in its entirety, I decided to give the audio books a listen. I am enjoying them so much!

Review: Daisy and the Dead by Sarah Bale

May Contain Spoilers

When I saw this on Netgalley, I started salivating.  I LOVE zombie stories!  All of the running and fighting and trying to survive – I find zombie stories irresistible.   What I didn’t realize before I hit the request button is that Sarah Bale writes erotica.  That’s not a deal killer for me, but when I read books with zombies, I want ZOMBIES.  Not spankings and heroines who defiantly proclaim they won’t be sleeping with the big bad leader of the gang who saved her – and promptly jumps into bed with him. Without protection (which the hero claimed to always use, until sleeping with our heroine) during a zombie apocalypse, where an unplanned pregnancy would certainly spell disaster. Not to mention STDs. It’s not like there’s a doctor on every corner anymore. Smh.
