Zombie Awareness Month Recap: Week 2

13 05 2012

It is almost the halfway point of Zombie Awareness Month, and thankfully I have yet to achieve Zombie fatigue. So far, I have listened to 9 Zombie related Audiobooks, with a totally running time of nearly 88 hours. This is nearly three and a half days of Zombie listening. This week here at The Guilded Earlobe we had 5 Zombie Audiobook reviews, including a science fiction novel with vomit zombies, two Young Adult Zombie novels, and some genetically engineered Werewolves thrown into the mix. So, remember, stay alert, stay vigilante, and aim for the head.

Reviewed This Week:

Zombie Fallout Two: A Plague Upon Your Family by Mark Tufo

Pavlov’s Dogs by Thom Brannan and D.L. Snell

Leviathan Wakes by James SA Corey

Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

Dust & Decay by Jonathan Maberry

Around The Web:

For her Zombie Monday feature, Jenn from Jenn’s Bookshelves highly recommends Mainak Dhar’s Zombiestan from Tantor Audio.

My Bookish Ways reviews By The Blood of Heroes: The Great Undead War, Book 1 by Joseph Nassisse calling it great fun.

Gil T. Pleasures is hosting a giveaway for the entire Autumn Series by David Moody.

The Bookish Brunnette continues her Zombie Craze 2012 event with a guest post by Plague Town author Dana Fredsti about Italian Zombie Movies, as well as giveways and other excellent zombie related posts.

News:

One of the most anticipated books of the year is beginning to make it’s way through the blogging community, amping up for its May 22 release. I received my review copy of the Audiobook version of Blackout, the final book in Mira Grant’s Newsflesh series on Friday, and others have received print ARCs. Publisher Weekly has already given it a glowing review, so keep your eyes out for it. If you have yet to read Feed and Deadline, the first two novels in the Newsflesh series, stop whatever you are doing now, and get them now.

This week I am planning on listening to some offbeat and untraditional Zombie novels, including Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen and Dust by Joan Frances Turner. So, look for that, perhaps a print review of two, and maybe some interviews this week.
