Must Read Mondays: May 15th


Must Read Monday is a weekly thing I do here to recommend books I’ve read and enjoyed. I might sometimes throw in something I gave 3 stars to, but for the most part they’re books I gave a 4-5 star rating to. That doesn’t mean they’re necessarily amazing literature, but it does mean I liked them enough to recommend them to other people.


Married With Zombies 7716140(book 1 in the Living With the Dead series) by Jesse Petersen

When I read it: June 2011

Genres: sci-fi? horror? paranormal and/or fantasy? (What are zombie stories classified as, anyway?); romance

Recommended for: If you like things like the movies Zombieland, Dead Snow, Fido, Shaun of the Dead, etc. (think zombies, but with humor), and you don’t mind some romance mixed in, give this series a try.

What it’s about:

A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse.

Meet Sarah and David.

Once upon a time they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things – the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat.

Meet the Zombies.

Now, Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But, just because there are zombies, doesn’t mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don’t eat their brains, they might just kill each other.

This might have been my first zombie book (if not, it was one of the first), and I loved it.

It’s fairly short (about 250 pages), and I devoured it in about a day, which was impressive back then when I had a much smaller child demanding my attention most of every day. This series definitely helped me become a zombie lover. (I wasn’t afraid of them at any point, I just never watched many movies with zombies or read many books, which was weird considering what a horror movie buff I was/am.)

I still haven’t actually finished this series, but I read the first three and thought they were a ton of fun. Warning, though, there is a lot of strong language if I remember correctly, and maybe some sexy times.

It’s been forever since I read this (my copy disappeared with a friend), but I’m hoping to get a new copy so I can re-read them at some point. They’re just hilarious, light, fun reads, and if I were a beach-goer, something like this would be my beach read.

Have you read this one? If you, too, love zombies, let me know some of your recommendations for books and movies, please!

    • I’m not sure, but maybe. It’s been a long time since I read it, and that was before I dealt with slumps very often, but I *think* it might work for helping to get over one. If you read it, I’d love to know if you like it or not!
