December 30, 2012 – It’s almost the end of the year. I humbly concede in my failure to meet this reading challenge. I pledged to read 12 books this year but I was only able to do five books. Well, as one of my guiding principle goes…it’s better than nothing! 🙂
The five zombie-themed books I read this year are the following:
1. Feed (Newsflesh #1) – Mira Grant
2. The Dead-Tossed Waves (Forest of Hands and Teeth #2) – Carrie Ryan
3. World War Z – Max Brooks
4. Never Slow Dance with a Zombie – E. Van Lowe
5. The Dark and Hollow Places (Forest of Hands and Teeth #3) – Carrie Ryan
Until next year! 🙂
Look who’s back joining reading challenges!
In line with my pledge to read 100 books this year, I spiced up my reading plans by participating in online challenges. Note that I’m still on a book-buying ban and joining challenges like this would help me get over my TBR pile.
You may want to know I was into zombies last year, what with The Walking Dead, my George Romero movie nights (alone!), and many reading materials about our not-so friendly shambling friends. I decided that I want them to stay so I joined Book Chick City’s Zombie Challenge for 2012.
The rules for this challenge are very simple.
