Wishlist Wednesday #42

Every Wednesday, Dani at Pen To Paper features Wishlist Wednesday, a meme in which you can list a book that you really want to read or keep meaning to get. These are books that you want to add to your wishlist, and believe me there are plenty!  I've decided to use Dani's feature every Wednesday :)

So what do you need to do to join in?
  • Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.
  • Pick a book from your wishlist that you are dying to get to put on your shelves.
  • Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.
  • Add your blog to the linky at the bottom of her post.
  • Put a link back to pen to paper (http://www.pentopaperblog.com/) somewhere in your post.
  • Visit the other blogs and enjoy!

So here is my book for this weeks Wishlist Wednesday:

Goodreads Synopsis:

In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn’t want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash—but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.

Acclaimed horror author Jonathan Maberry makes his young adult debut with this detail-rich depiction of a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has fallen, the dead have risen, and danger is always imminent.
I can now hold my hand up and say "yes, I Jenny, am now a fully fledged lover of zombie books!"  The last few books I've read in this genre to name but a few - The Forest of Hands & Teeth series by Carrie Ryan, Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel and the more recent Horizon by Sophie Littlefield has certainly whetted my appetite for more.  Believe me I would never have thought it :P  Rot & Ruin has been recommended to me by so many zombie loving readers that I think it's high time it went on the wishlist.  The cover is really freaky.  If you have any other zombie related book recommendations please mention them in the comments :D

Rot & Ruin is absolutely amazing, you have to get it & read it! The sequel was almost as good, too :) Yeah, I need to read more Maberry's books...
Still haven't read Ryan's & Lia's books, but I loved Sophie's Aftertime, although I still haven't read both sequels. The Doomsday Vault by Steven Harper is also one of my favs - it's steampunk with zombies. Warm Body by Isaac Marion was surprisingly pretty great, too. Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts isn't quite with zombies, but it's similar great post-apocalyptic. These are all I can think about at this moment. If I think of others, I'll let you know. You need to get Rot & Ruin soon :)

Aleksandra said...

Yeah, ok, I meant Warm Bodies - plural :)

Dani Cotton said...

Another zombie book, Jen? What has happened to you? ;P
It's all good - I've been after a couple myself, recently! I hope you get this soon :) Let me know if it's any good!

Hi Jenny. I'm a new follower - found you through the blog hop. I love post apocalyptic stories, but I've resisted zombies so far. But the summary of Rot and Ruin is pretty intriguing. I might have to give it a try.
