I have to admit that I have a bit of an obsession when it comes to zombies. Since reading Carrie Ryan's Forest of Hands and Teeth, I have a weird fascination with the undead and what happens afterwards. So, of course, I knew that I had to read Warm Bodies before I was first in line at the movie theater on February 1st to see it. I have to say that it had me at "I am dead, but it's not so bad." I haven't read much zombie fiction from the perspective of said undead.

If you’ve had your fill of vampires, sorcerer’s, and alien invasions, rest assured…Richland Library has something for you!
Consider reading new arrival Three Little Words, by Sarah Harvey, following 16-year-old Sid as he journeys away from the only home he’s ever known to find a brother he’s never met. Described as both a “hypnotic” and “skillfully told” story, this realistic look at identity, mental illness, trauma, and family may fit your bill for something different.
He’s baa-ack! Fans of Darren Shan - REJOICE!
Shan adds to his already extensive collection of tales dark and creepy with series starter, Zom-B, and its newly released sequel, Zom-B: Underground.
More than just another zombie outbreak/flesh devouring/gore fest (though fans of these things shouldn’t be disappointed), Shan delves deeper, weaving themes of morality and racism into this gritty new horror series.
