Zombie Movies & Books

A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, and a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the Last Twinkie and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.

Everything zombie seems to be popular right now and the movie world is no exception. I have only seen two zombie movies, Zombieland and Zombie Apocalypse. The two movies are very different but also very good. Hubby and I are watching Zombieland for what is probably the fifth time. When I started watching it for the first time, I thought it might end up being one of those movies that you regret spending your time on but it was quite the opposite. This movie never seems to get old and I still laugh out loud at some of the scenes.

Months after a zombie plague has wiped out 90 percent of the American population, a small group of survivors fight their way cross-country to a rumored refuge on the island of Catalina.

Zombie Apocalypse is more action without the comedy and I can't explain why, but I absolutely love that this movie has a zombie tiger!

As for zombie books, well I have only read two...so far.

I have read the first two books in The Forest of Hands and Teeth series by Carrie Ryan.

They are good, but they weren't quite the five star books that I was expecting. See my reviews here and here. I do plan on finishing the trilogy and reading more zombie books, for example

Have you seen any zombie moves? Read any zombie books?


  1. Oh my gosh! You posted! Be still my heart. LOL

    I saw that Zombieland was on TV, I almost watched it. Can't even remember what I watched instead.

    The old black and white -Night of the Living Dead, I think is the only Zombie type movie I have seen. I do like Horror movies though, so I have prob. seen more just not remembering.

    What are you doing watching them, you hate scary movies?

  2. Haha, yes I posted. Do you need to sit down?

    I wouldn't consider either of these to be scary...bloody, yes....but not scary.

  3. I loveeee Zombieland <3

    You need to read "Dearly, Departed"...that's a good ya zombie book :)

  4. Oh yeah, Dearly Departed is another one on my to read list!

  5. I've never read a zombie book. I've been meaning to and hopefully I will get to it soon! I lately am loving the Walking Dead! You should definitely check out the show, if you haven't already.

    1. Hubby has been wanting to watch that. Maybe I'll order the first season...give it a whirl

  6. Rise Again: A Zombie Thriller by Ben Tripp is another zombie book on my to read list.

  7. Ohhh The Walking Dead is epic!! :D

  8. Ok, I caved. I just ordered Season 1 of Walking Dead.

    Hubs and I have 5 days off together next wee and so far we haven't made any plans. This will be a good back up plan if we don't find enough to do.

  9. Just a quick update...hubs and I watched season 1 and 2 while we were on vaca!!! We are both addicted!

    Ps, is it just me or is Carl getting super annoying?! It's probably just me haha.


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
