Book Chick City’s Zombie Challenge 2012

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.

Timeline: 01 Jan 2012 – 31 Dec 2012
• Rules: There are FOUR (4) LEVELS to choose from:
– One Chomp: Read 6 Zombie books in 2012 
– Two Chomps: Read 12 Zombie books in 2012
 Three Chomps: Read 18 Zombie books in 2012
– Four Chomps: Read 24 Zombie books in 2012
For more information about the challenge, please visit this site.
I decided to join level 2, Two Chomps, and read 12 zombie books in 2012.  I checked my book list and I have 10 zombie-related books I can gobble up for this challenge.  I’m two books short but I’m pretty sure when I start buying books by July, I’ll be adding more to my zombie-themed books.  Here are the ones I will read to fulfill this challenge:
  • Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy #1) – Mira Grant
  • The Dead Tossed Waves (The Forest of Hands and Teeth #2) – Carrie Ryan
  • World War Z – Max Brooks
  • Cell – Stephen King
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Seth Grahame-Smith
  • Rot and Ruin – Jonathan Maberry
  • The Zombie Survival Guide – Max Brooks
  • Monster Island – David Wellington
  • Monster Nation – David Wellington
  • Monster Planet – David Wellington
As to the ones I plan to buy towards the end of the year, I can name only three at this time:
  • Warm Bodies – Isaac Marion
  • Deadline (Newsflesh Trilogy #2) – Mira Grant
  • The Dark and Hollow Places (The Forest of Hands and Teeth #3) – Carrie Ryan

I will make this a sticky post every time I need to update it with my zombie books read.  Let’s chomp away!

    • Halfway done with Feed and I love it already!!! It has lots of elements I like – zombies, journalism/social media, dystopia, political campaign – can’t wait to finish it. I must also include Deadline in my to-buy list! 🙂
