Challenge: 03 01/04/2013-30/04/2013

I'm sorry I didn't post this on the first, like I should have done!

This months challenge - chose a book off your shelves that was published between 2007 and 2010.

I've chosen Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion which was published in 2010!
Goodreads Summary: 'R' is a zombie. He has no name, no memories and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.

Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows - warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can't understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins.

This has never happened before. It breaks the rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their grim, rotting world won't be changed without a fight...

I started reading it yesterday in the gym (while cycling) and so far it's really good! I'm not usually one for zombies, so this is a little out there for me, but I'm enjoying it :D

Let us know in the comments what book you're choosing :D


  1. I'm making a real effort to read more books this year. So, while I'm currently reading Eleanor & Park for the ADF Book Club, I think I'll finish it before the end of April and have time to read another...hopefully. So, in order to participate here, too, as soon as I finish Eleanor & Park, I'm going to start The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom (published Feb 2010).

    I read Warm Bodies, but I didn't see the movie. The movie previews made it seem a bit more comedic than the book. I enjoyed the book, and will probably see the movie when it's out On Demand.

    1. I was going to go see the movie, but I just never got around to it. They've obviously changed things from the book though, but I'm still interested in seeing it :).

      I've never heard of The Kitchen House, going to have a look now :D
