Must Read Mondays: June 12th

must-read-mondays

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.

Alright, in the interest of full disclosure, I have to tell you that I don’t remember this very clearly. It’s been over 6 years since I read it, so the details are pretty fuzzy now, but I do remember reading it very quickly and loving it. I actually gave this 5/5 stars back then. This might not be for everyone, but if you like zombies, fiction that’s written like non-fiction, or books about preppers, you might like this.

 


Have you read it? What did you think?

    • I can’t remember how much the zombies are actually featured in this particular book, but I’m pretty sure it’s not a constant thing. But I kind of get the zombie fear, I think. My best friend is super freaked out by them, too.
