This was a slower week for me. I am trying to spend less on everything and put that money towards paying off the bills from Christmas. I am trying to take the 2013 TBR Pile Challenge seriously and actually read from the insane stacks of books taking over my office.
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
A zombie who yearns for a better life ends up falling in love—with a human—in this astonishingly original debut novel.
R is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He doesn’t enjoy killing people; he enjoys riding escalators and listening to Frank Sinatra. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.
I cannot wait to read Warm Bodies! I wrote about the book and the movie in Read It Before You See It: Warm Bodies. I nearly always need to read the book first, so this really could not have come at a better time.
The Cadet Of Tildor by Alex Lidell
I received The Cadet Of Tildor through the Debut Author Challenge ARC tour, which I am so glad to participate in. Other books from the Debut Author Challenge ARC tour Altered by Jennifer Rush (review for Altered can be found here) and Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook (review coming next week.) I am about halfway through The Cadet Of Tildor and am think it is amazing. A review should be posted next week and I sure do have a lot to say about this book.
