On the Night Table [10]: Zombies, Charley, Spells, and a Dystopian Nightmare.

I must admit that this week’s reading choices is a bit all over the place, but hey, that’s just the kind of reader I am. I just don’t see any enjoyment in reading the same books in the same genre week in and week out. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. What can I say? I like testing the waters from time to time. šŸ™‚

So this week, I have an audiobook copy of Feed by Mira Grant – a series that’s been shoved down my throat by trusted sources. I don’t know why I’ve been obstinately set against starting this series. I’m a couple of chapters in, and I’m liking the flow of dialogues between siblings so far; as well, the frantic pace normally found with these types of books.

As you know, I’ve recently discovered the comedic schtick of one, Charley Davidson. I’m working on the fourth book of this series aptly titled, Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet. Sometimes, I find myself writing down all the zings Charley comes up with. She’s brilliantly sarcastic. Spastically funny, and so wrong sometimes. I want to hang out with Ms. Darynda Jones. Seriously. I think we’ll have a great time. šŸ™‚

Admittedly, I don’t know much about When My Heart was Wicked by Tricia Stirling. I fell in love with the cover, and the synopsis was a little vague. I’m looking to be surprised.

I read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood three years ago. It was all kinds of messed up, and I enjoyed it. The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons is apparently a hybrid of that book and Blood Red Road by Moira Young. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill! I have my doubts, obviously.

These are the books on my night table this week.

What’s in your pile?
