The story:


The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives – the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will get out, even if it kills them

The view of a book addict:


I can describe this book in one word: Wow! I’ve been a zombie fan ever since I read The forest of hands and teeth. When I found this book I knew I had to read it but it took me some time to start reading it.
But once I started it , it was so hard to put this book down! It has everything a good book needs and I haven’t read a zombie book that was this exciting before. The story is easy to follow and it moves in a fast pace. You just have to love the characters of the book and they way the zombies are created is amazing!


The verdict of a book addict:

I can honestly say that this is the best book I’ve read this year and the best zombie book I’ve ever read. I can’t wait to start the second book!

Review: The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan

Published 22/06/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:              
The Dark and Hollow Places 
Author:         
  Carrie Ryan
Pages:            
378
Catagory:       
Zombies, young adult

The story:

There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister’s face when she and Elias left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the horde as they found their way to the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters. 

Annah’s world stopped that day and she’s been waiting for him to come home ever since. Without him, her life doesn’t feel much different from that of the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Then she meets Catcher and everything feels alive again. 

Except, Catcher has his own secrets—dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah’s longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it’s up to Annah—can she continue to live in a world drenched in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return’s destruction

The view of a book addict:

I loved this book! I was a huge fan of the first two books and I couldn’t wait to read the third book, I’m glad I wasn’t dissapointed. The story captured me from the first page to the last, I even kept myself awake last night to finish this book.

This book shows how stong the sense of survival is in people, even if they know that the chances that they’ll survive are limited they still try and that’s what makes this such a good story. The emotions and the things the people do for each other, give this story a heart in between all the dead.

The verdict of a book addict:

A great book! A great ending for a trilogy although I’m still curious about why the return hit. Maybe someday we’ll know.

Review: Zombie Britannica by Thomas Emson

Published 08/02/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Zombie Britannica
Author:           Thomas Emson
Pages:             440
Catagory:        Zombies

The story:


Cassie’s day as a guide at Westminster Abbey begins badly when zombies storm into the building and eat the tourists. Carrie escapes – but finds London choked with the undead. She has no idea where they came from, no idea how to stop them – all she knows is she has to race through dangerous, gore-soaked streets and find her daughter. And her day doesn’t get any better…

The view of a book addict:
This book is fast paced and full of Horror. You won’t get the chance to breath because the zombies are everywhere and they won’t go away.
I love the way this story is written, you follow a lot of people and somehow they are all connected. This book doesn’t spare anyone, not women, not children, the zombies don’t discriminate. While reading the book I just hoped everyone would survive, but of course that’s not going to happen. When you read the first line of the zombies are already there, there is no time to get to know the characters first. You get to know them while they are running from the zombies or looking for loved ones. The most scary scenes for me were the scenes where the people turning into a zombie tell about their last thoughts it really gave me the creeps.

The verdict of a book addict:


O MY GOD!! That’s what I thought when I finished this book, this book gave me sleepless nights. If you like a good zombie book with a lot of blood, sweat, tears and intestines this is your book! This book scare the hell out of you!
One advice: Don’t read this book before you go to sleep

Zombies

Published 29/12/2010 by supernaturalreadingaddict

So on wednesday I tell you all a little bit more about the books I love to read and what they are about. So I’ve been reading the book The forest of hands and teeth and have fallen in love with the zombies.
I’ve always been a sucker for zombie movies, I just like the slowly walking dead guys and girls of course.

But I’ve never read a zombie book before, until I found this book. After reading it I decided it was time I found more books about my undead friends, and so I did! I found another series about them and waiting for the books to arrive at the moment. I’m new to all this zombie books so if you’re reading this and have a suggestion for a book I should read tell me!

But what is it I love about zombies? They actually scare the life out of me, I don’t know if there ever were a zombie invasion I hope I won’t get bitten or eaten alive. They scare me because they are never alone, they’re always with a large group and that’s probably their strength because they aren’t that fast. But when you face a big group of zombies you just know you won’t survive. So for the people who haven’t read any zombie books just go for it!! Here are a couple of books I’ve found on the internet, and want to read:

And remember to protecht your brains when reading books about zombies because they will invade your dreams!!

Review: The forest of hands and teeth by Carrie Ryan

Published 19/12/2010 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Goodreads summary:
In Mary’s world there are simple truths.     

The Sisterhood always knows best. 
The Guardians will protect and serve. 
The Unconsecrated will never relent. 
And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. 

But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future-between the one she loves and the one who loves her. 

And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death? 

Review: Spoiler alert!!!!

So this is a story about zombies, but it isn’t all blood and gore it’s a beautiful story about survival. Mary lives in a world surrounded by fences, these fences keep the undead or Unconsecrated as they are called in the book out of the village. The story starts with mary telling about the ocean, how her mother told her stories about the ocean. She also tells us that her father has disappeared and everyone thinks he became one of the unconsecrated. Her mother searches for him everyday at the fences. And at the end of this chapter the first victim of the unconsecrated is a fact. Her mother is infected and she is giving the choice of the final death or become one of the residents of the fores of hand and teeth. After her mother dies her brother sends her to the sisterhood. Something Mary doesn’t want, she doesn’t believe in god anymore, here she falls in love with Travis but he will mary her best friend. For her comes his brother Harry he wants to marry her. In the time that she’s staying with the sisters she sees a new girl come into the village but only later will she find out that she has become one of the unconsecrated, but she’s diffrent, she’s faster than the others. On the day of her marriage to Harry the unconsecrated break through the fences. Mary gets away from the village through the only gate that has a path behind it. Together with Travis, Harry, her brother and his wife, her best friend, a dog and a child they saved they start to travel the path and try to find a way out to the outside world. This book doesn’t have a happy ending that leaves you with a fuzzy feeling.

The verdicht

I loved this book from page one, I wanted to know everything about the village and the people living there. How did they survive and what are they doing now to stay alive.This was my first zombie book so I didn’t know what to expect from it. After I got deeper into the story the story started to haunt me, even in  my sleep I couldn’t get a rest from the book and the unconsecrated. I wanted to know what would happen next. I kept dreaming about the unconsecrated too, what would happen if something like this would really happen to us? I found the ending beautiful and I can’t wait to read the next book. It;s a beautiful and scary story it grips you and it won’t let you go until the last page. And even after reading the last page it still haunts you. If you are easily scared you should not read this book at night!
