Discussion Post: Zombie Books

I’m sure you’ve noticed the influx of zombie books, movies and games. It seems the trend is only growing in popularity.

I’ve only dabbled in the zombie realm, so I’m hoping you’ll give me the needed insight to understand the trend for the dead.

While watching the movie previews before Breaking Dawn Part 2, I saw a preview for Warm Bodies – the latest book-turned-movie adaption.

Warm Bodies is a zombie romance, and the movie trailer was enough to convince me to read the book. It looked funny, cute and sweetly romantic.

This made me want to open my limited zombie experience a bit wider and give this emerging trend a try.

Yay or Nay?

So what’s your verdict?

What zombie books or movies have you read? IF zombies are the new vampire, how do you feel about this shift?

A few popular zombie books I’ve seen and am interested in are:

  • Dearly Departed
  • Something Strange and Deadly
  • The Forest of Hands and Teeth
  • This is Not a Test
  • Cold Kiss
  • Undeadly
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Plus, movie and TV-wise there’s the highly-addictive Walking Dead, Legend and World War Z.

Whether you hate them or love them, zombies and zombie books are here to stay.

  • I love zombie movies. I haven’t read any books yet, but I want to read some. I own a few; I just haven’t got to them yet. And, Warm Bodies looks hilarious! I want to read the book and see the movie now!

  • Zombies are awesome; so awesome that I based my fitness blog around them 😛
