Zurvival Saturday (117) Waiting On Zombies

| Saturday, September 5, 2015 | 0 comments |

Let's talk about Zombie books. Lately, I've noticed that while more zombie books are being produced, I don't necessarily have the urge to hunt down each one and read it. Yes, I love the genre but you can only see the same story over and over again before the pattern becomes redundant. So naturally, that means I search a bit harder and longer these days to find something really special to sink my teeth into or share with you all.

In Billy Phillips’ “Once Upon a Zombie”, a terrible curse has been cast upon classic fairy tale characters and their respective worlds, transforming all within into the walking dead. However, despite all that comes with being undead these princesses aren't going down easily and with the help of a girl named Caitlyn it’s time for these Zombie Princesses to Rise, Empower, and Claim Their World Back!

Why I'm Waiting: Did you not read the description above?! This story definitely puts a unique spin on the traditional zombie apocalypse and from the buzz that I've heard so far, it sounds like a winner overall. Plus, I'm always down for a book that empowers women and girls to rise above the obstacles laid before them. I secretly want to collect the dolls as well. Zombie Belle is awesome. I hope they sell them in stores soon. You can find them ----->http://www.thinkgeek.com

Caitlin's life takes a turn for the bizarre when she's tricked into climbing down a "rabbit hole", landing in a wondrous fairy tale universe - except it's crawling with savage, starving blood-eyed zombies.

Young Adult Giveaway Hop 2015!!

| Friday, August 14, 2015 | 59 comments |

Welcome to my stop on the Young Adult Giveaway Hop , hosted by Book Hounds. This year I'm going to keep things fairly simple and let the winner pick whichever book they want. However, because this is a hop about the Young Adult books we love, I do have a couple recommendations in mind to share with you all. All covers linked to Goodreads for your convenience.

Twelve years ago Stella and Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella returned minutes later, with no memory of what happened. Jeanie was never seen or heard from again.

Now Stella is seventeen, and she's over it. She's the lucky one who survived, and sure, the case is still cloaked in mystery—and it's her small town's ugly legacy—but Stella is focused on the coming summer. She's got a great best friend, a hookup with an irresistibly crooked smile, and two months of beach days stretching out before her.

Then along comes a corpse, a little girl who washes up in an ancient cemetery after a mudslide, and who has red hair just like Jeanie did. Suddenly memories of that haunting day begin to return, and when Stella discovers that other red-headed girls have gone missing as well, she begins to suspect that something sinister is at work.

And before the summer ends, Stella will learn the hard way that if you hunt for monsters, you will find them.

The strange war down south—with its rumors of gods and monsters—is over. And while sixteen-year-old Hallie and her sister wait to see who will return from the distant battlefield, they struggle to maintain their family farm.

When Hallie hires a veteran to help them, the war comes home in ways no one could have imagined, and soon Hallie is taking dangerous risks—and keeping desperate secrets. But even as she slowly learns more about the war and the men who fought it, ugly truths about Hallie’s own family are emerging. And while monsters and armies are converging on the small farm, the greatest threat to her home may be Hallie herself.

In 2013: Sixteen-year-old Alora is having blackouts. Each time she wakes up in a different place with no idea of how she got there. The one thing she is certain of? Someone is following her.

In 2146: Seventeen-year-old Bridger is one of a small number of people born with the ability to travel to the past. While on a routine school time trip, he sees the last person he expected—his dead father. The strangest part is that, according to the Department of Temporal Affairs, his father was never assigned to be in that time. Bridger’s even more stunned when he learns that his by-the-book father was there to break the most important rule of time travel—to prevent someone’s murder.

And that someone is named Alora.

Determined to discover why his father wanted to help a “ghost,” Bridger illegally shifts to 2013 and, along with Alora, races to solve the mystery surrounding her past and her connection to his father before the DTA finds him. If he can stop Alora’s death without altering the timeline, maybe he can save his father too.

When the glass slipper just doesn’t fit…

The tale of Cinderella has been retold countless times. But what you know is not the true story.

Pin has no recollection of who she is or how she got to the Godmother’s fortress. She only knows that she is a Seamstress, working day in and out to make ball gowns fit for fairy tales. But she longs to forsake her backbreaking servitude and dares to escape with the brave young Shoemaker.

Pin isn’t free for long before she’s captured again and forced to live the new life the Godmother chooses for her—a fairy tale story, complete with a charming prince—instead of finding her own happily ever after.

Sarah Prineas’s bold fairy tale retelling is a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers, young shoemakers are just as striking as princes, and a heroine is more than ready to rescue herself before the clock strikes midnight.
