Top Ten Tuesday — Spooky Books

23 Oct

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join.  If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!

It’s the haunted holiday season…  I thought I would share my favorite spooky books.  But anyone who knows me, knows that I love love love zombie books.  So my Top Ten is going to be the Top Ten Spooky Zombie Books.  Enjoy!

1. Autumn by David Moody — Very dark, very adult zombie series.  Full of gore, just how I like it.  And I must say that this entire series really does scare the crap out of me…

2. Allison Hewitt is Trapped and Sadie Walker is Stranded by Madeleine Roux — I loved the idea of Allison Hewitt blogging the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse.  The second book a lovely treat of zombie books.

3. Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant — A different type of zombie book, but oh so good!

4. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies — One of my favorite classic books mixed with zombies while still keeping the Austen style and passages… loved it!  I liked Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters a bit less than P&P&Zombies.

5. As the World Dies trilogy by Rhiannon Frater

6. The Walked Dead comic series — I started reading the comic series after I started watching the TV series, but the comics still hold their own.  I love the stark black and white cells.  A masterpiece of spontaneity.

7. Living with the Dead trilogy by Jesse Petersen — A more funny zombie novel about a couple reconnecting throughout the ordeal.   I loved this series so much…

8. World War Z by Max Brooks — Documentary style highlighting the after effects of the zombie apocalypse.  I was really looking forward to the movie version, but I hear it’s on the rocks right now.  Boo…

9. The Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy by Carrie Ryan — My favorite YA zombie series.  I love the look of the world years afterward.   The first one was my favorite hands down, but the other two were really good also.

10. Zombie Blondes by Brian James — Stepford Wives meets zombies in this YA novel.  It was plenty creepy to keep me entertained.
