I read part of the first book but abandoned it. I did not like it at all and I'm usually a big zombie fan. It wasn't the story so much as the characters I think. I seem to be one of the only people who doesn't like it, though. Maybe I should give it a second chance.

I think I'll have to check that one out. It's $.99 on Nook right now too. Not quite free but almost. :)


Kari Put me in for a hard level. It actually works out I just got an ARC to review for Dearly, Beloved but I want to read Dearly, Departed first before I jump into the 2nd book :)

Start date September 12th though please. I need to finish by Bingo book first.

I will let you know how it is! The premise looks really interesting so I'm really excited to read it! I've been trying to get to it for a week and a half now... I'm slightly buried under library books and ARCs at the moment. Every spare moment I have that I'm not on Goodreads I'm either glued to my nook or a library book :)


Mallory Heart Reviews (Ever-Haunted_Ever-Reader) Got one done, but can't post review on it until Mon. eve as I read/reviewed it for freebookdude.com, to be published Mon. Sept. 17: How To Train Your Zombie but I gave it 5 Stars:).

Hmm... I guess I won't rush out to get it. It can get moved down the list a little. :)


Mallory Heart Reviews (Ever-Haunted_Ever-Reader) Great idea, Sarajayne-if possible, I'd like to do it again too (I've already got a new zombie book from yesterday-read one on Sunday, guess that won't count-):)

Please do! Keep it as an ongoing challenge if you like or just come back to it whenever you like.

Hard level is 3 books because this runs as a mini-challenge in The Challenge Factory. If you want to give yourself a bigger goal please feel free to do so. :)

I want to so read that book
