{The World Without a Future Blog Tour + Giveaway} Top 10 Zombie Anything w/ Nazaera Andrews

 YAY, Zombies!! 
Words can not articulate how extremely excited I am to have this gifted author grace my blog! 

She's brilliant, her writing style is gritty and upfront....honestly I just fell in love with her...and since she wrote a fabulous Zombie book, her Top Ten must be about Zombies!!


Top Ten Zombie Books and Movies

Zombieland: I loved loved loved the humor of this movie. It has a very 
dry sarcastic humor that appeals to everything I like. Also, Bill Murray’s house?  Best scene EVER! :)

Resident Evil: My husband and I have a tradition of watching each of these films together—once in theatre and once at home. They aren’t spectacular and at this point, the franchise has gotten a bit predictable, but it’s one of the first zombie movies I watched and one thing we can agree on. 

Dearly, Departed/Dearly, Beloved: This neo-Victorian zombie book does what I love best—takes the zombie genre and turns it on it’s head. I love the writing and the characters and the weird romance and ALLLL OF IT! :)

Dawn of the Dead: it’s classic. And I <3 it.

Warm Bodies: An unorthodox zombie tale, but one I really enjoyed, and one that made me laugh at several points. Which, you know, is always a win. :)

The Forest of Hands and Teeth Trilogy: The way that Ryan creates a world after the apocalypse is one of my favorite things ever. I love seeing how things have changed, and how—essentially—humanity has not changed at all. Plus her writing is gorgeous.

 (which FYI, they're making into a movie!!!)

28 Days Later/28 Weeks Later: 28 Days Later is one of the first zombie movies I ever saw and I flipping loved it. It’s still high on my list of favorites and is one of the rare franchises that had an equally amazing sequel. It was recently displaced as my all time favorite.

The News Flesh Trilogy: I am so in love with this series. Because the characters were so amazing and real and heartbreaking, because the zombies were not the end all/be all of the world, because Mira Grant managed to deftly talk about social conditions while still telling an amazing story. Because it wasn’t about the apocalypse, but rather a political event decades later. Because the romance is one of my favorites in a long time. Just…all of it. Love. 

World War Z: ok. Two things: Brad Pitt. And Zombies. I pretty much was sold on that alone. But then I watched it and zomg. So good. I loved it. Seriously. New favorite movie. 

The Walking Dead: again, what draws me to this isn’t the zombies. It’s the characters and the way they live through the apocalypse. I love getting to know them and seeing their struggles and failures and growth. It’s awesome sauce. (AND DID YOU SEE THE MID-SEASON FINALE, OMG, TWEET ME!!!) 


 She was born the day the world ended…

Nurrin has lived her entire life with zombies—trapped behind walls meant to keep them safe. She’s mostly happy there. But when a zombie horde breach the walls of her Haven, she has to trust her brother, Collin, and his best friend to keep her alive.

He just wants his past to die…

Finn O’Malley has given up on voicing warnings that are ignored. No one cares that the zombies are changing. Now all that matters is keeping Collin and Nurrin safe from what’s outside the walls of a Haven. But when Nurrin’s best friend picks up a contact infection, he agrees to get the medicine needed to save his life. Forced together, relying on each other in a strange Haven, zombies aren’t the most dangerous thing they’re facing.

In their world, only one thing remains true: everything ends in blood.
