The Walking Dead was great. I've been tempted by the DVD set. It's only $19.99 at Wally world. I am probably going to buy it for my Mom's birthday. Nothing says love like the Zombie Apocolypse. LOL

I realized that after. ;) The only reason I didn't think of the Envy Chronicles for Jericho, initially, was that my mind had already pick Catching Fire. It's a little harder for me to fill the zombie category :D

The first one is shelved on GR under zombie, so I'll accept that, Christina. :)


Here are a few links for people searching for a zombie book. Remember all books must be a part of a series. But, they do not have to be from the same series.

The Walking Dead was great. I've been tempted by the DVD set. It's only $19.99 at Wally world. I am probably going to buy it for my Mom's birthday. Nothing say..."


LOL! I think they've done a great job with the show. Can't wait for S02 in Oct!

Christina (AKA Babbling) (BabblingBookReviews) | 1161 comments A couple questions...

Will this work for "Being Human": First Grave on the Right?

"Vampire Diaries": Do they have to be brothers? I've noticed others were picking the Black Dagger books for this category. Does that mean the Midnight Breed series or Pamela Palmer's Feral Warriors also fit the bill?

First Grave definitely fits for "Being Human" b/c ghosts play a big part in it.

Vamp Brothers can be used loosely, like BDB, or taken literally like Laura Wright's Mark of the Vampire series. Other series with the same of vamp "brothers" as in BDB would be fine w/me.

Thanks, Sarah. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for thinking of them Daffodil, I've got them in a few other challenges, so it will be easy to slot them in here, too.

Thanks, Daffodil. :D

I have a bunch of 1st in a series featuring "a band of brothers". I'm not sure if I just read another Midnight Breed or pick one of the other series.

Or I could go with the Feral Warriors. The shifters were seriously under-represented on this list! ;-) Three vampire-centric shows (counting Buffy)! Not too many were-centric TV shows out there, I guess. ;-D

(I keep typing "bread", instead of "breed")
