Blood, Boobs, and Carnage Blogfest

Sometimes, wait, not oftentimes, I wonder how I get myself mixed up into things. Prolly my need to party or my need for instant gratification of all things fun. Anyhow, I somehow got myself signed up for

Blood, Boobs, and Carnage Blogfest

Blood Boobs Carnage Blogfest

 

which, conveniently enough, is hosted by my friends The Ninja Captain and Heather Gardner.  Which is ironic, because, you know, I just finished the A to Z Challenge which is a ginormos blogging challenge and I don’t have enough anxiety anyway, right? But hey, what can I tell you? I’m a glutton for donuts. And Zombies.

So here are the rules:

On May 18, 2015, post about a movie, television show, book, or all three that falls into the category of Blood, Boobs, and Carnage. (Or just Blood and Carnage or other mixture.) It can be any genre that fits the bill – fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, western, thriller, etc. Post the badge and visit other participants.

So my donation is books about zombies.

I dressed up as a zombie one year. Anyhow…

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.  Alien invasion that creates zombies in their wake.

The sequel is Infinite Sea.  Not my fave.

The next book I’ve read is The Passage by Justin Cronin. Big book. Like 42 books in one. Very detailed.An Unconventional Librarian The Passage

Alien invasion, zombies, vampires, you name it. But with a science background. It’s a commitment but if you finish it you get a degree. And you look at everything differently.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Because Elizabeth Bennett would kick butt as a zombie,right?

And  finally, Plants vs Zombies

Because we all know kids love zombies.  I mean, they eat brains!!

Now join me as I go visit the gross and disgusting blogfest and hope I don’t gag or get killed along the way.

Hey, I picked zombies too today! I am seriously in love with The Passage and the sequel, The Twelve. I’ve read them both twice now. (So do I get a double degree or a master’s?) I’ve got to try The 5th Wave. Lurch on, zombies, lurch on.

Tamara you can have a double masters cuz man I dont even want to THINK about attempting The Twelve.

Yancy’s second book seemed like more carnage to me or at least more scary. Cronin’s books are carnage through and through and very tense.

Zombies work for me! The best thing about the PP&Z mash-up was that it got me to read the Austen original which I enjoyed a great deal. The mash-up was fun too.

I wanna read Pride Prejudice and Zombies, I heard it is fun. Isn’t there a Tom Sawyer version too? I know PPZ is getting a movie, which sounds like it will be almost as delightful as the Jane Austen Fight Club that never got made 😀
Visiting through the blogfest! Cheers!

Arg! why did you mention Plants vs Zombies? Now I’ll have to pull out my phone and start playing another level!

HAH!! i thought it was just a book. had no idea it was a GAME!!!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies sounds fun. I have my hero fall in love with a Victorian ghoul in modern New Orleans right before Katrina. I grew to love Alice Wentworth so much that I wrote a whole novel through her eyes, END OF DAYS. It was a hoot for me to write. 🙂

I’m not much for zombies anymore, though it is fun to play a few levels of Plants Vs. Zombies.

I didn’t really get into zombies until I became hooked on the Walking Dead. Now I love a zombie theme! And I just have to read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!! What on earth is that about? Can’t wait to find out. Love the cover art!

I like truly hideous zombies. Warm Bodies just made me gag, but my daughter wanted me to watch with her. Quality time, right?

When I first saw a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies I thought it would be ridiculous. But I kept seeing people reading it on the subway in Boston so I caved. It was ridiculous in a totally fun way.

Zombies are a great choice for the BB&C Blogfest! I laughed about Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. Love the image! 🙂

I’m more interested in the idea of zombies than actual zombie stories I think, but I may still have to read The Passage. 😀

and dont forget the vampires. although it wasnt until book club discussion that i realized they were vampires. without the capes n such, who knew?

Zombie books for the WIN!
Well done, as usual, with so much class.
🙂
THANK YOU for joining Alex and me in this EPIC blogfest!

Wow! Elizabeth Bennett would so totally ace being a zombie. That is one of my fave books – the non-zombie version I mean. Here from the BBC blogfest and loving all the entries.
