I love to write, but even more so I love to read. I can’t help myself, its like an addiction. It consumes me! I read mostly fiction, science fiction, young adult fiction, superhero fiction (don’t know if that’s really a defined genre) fantasy fiction, the list goes on, but then occasionally I’ll throw in some nonfiction, maybe a biography, or an autobiography of some interesting character from history, the occasionally philosophy or psychology text, and oh yeah I read a lot about writing too, though good writing books are often hard to come across, but I digress.
Since we are following my novel writing progress I felt it was imperative for me to also give the occasional update on what I’m reading as well.
During my last trip to the bookstore (I won’t say which because I actually hate their freaking guts!) I picked up three interesting looking novels that I can’t wait to sink my teeth into (te-he-he, you’ll see why that’s funny in a minute)
The first book I picked up was: My Life as A White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland. This book is about a young girl named Angel Crawford. She’s a high school dropout,with drug and alcohol problems and has a rather lengthy police record. But when she’s made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for one new one of course.
I’m a big zombie fan, they are problem my favorite type of fictional monster, over even vampires, werewolves, aliens and human hating robots, so that simple obsession mixed with the incredible artwork that graced the cover of this book, it was a bit of a no brainer (no pun intended, I’ve actually hit my corny pun limit for this post) *note: the cover art was done by Dan Dos Santos.
This is another book that I had being eyeing for some time and decided to just go ahead and go for it, and I’m glad I did, I’ve already started reading it, and its a hardcore page turner.
Anyway, that what I’m reading right now I’ll come back and tell you guys how they turn out, minus any spoilers of course.
Till next time.
