5 Must Read Young Adult Series’ (Zombie Edition)

01 Aug

So, I am a huge fan of fantasy novels! I am pretty sure you have guessed that by now. I am also a fan of young adult. Some people shy away from it, generally because they think the writing is sub par or the content is sub par. Me, I just like a good story. And let’s be honest, many books today are filled with so much sex that there isn’t much plot. In some cases there is no plot at all. Well, with young adult, you actually have to have a story to tell… Can’t sell sex to kids… Even though young adult does have some sex in it, it is not the driving force of the novel. So… Without further adieu… I give you my top 5 young adult series, Zombie Edition!

Alice in Zombieland – Gena Showalter

Copied from Goodreads.com

She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. But that’s all it takes. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth- Carrie Ryan

Copied from Goodreads.com

In Mary’s world there are simple truths. 
   The Sisterhood always knows best. 
   The Guardians will protect and serve. 
   The Unconsecrated will never relent.
   And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. 
   But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power. And, when the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.
   Now, she must choose between her village and her future, between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

The Enemy – Charlie Gibson

Copied from Goodreads.com

In the wake of a devastating disease, everyone sixteen and older is either dead or a decomposing, brainless creature with a ravenous appetite for flesh. Teens have barricaded themselves in buildings throughout London and venture outside only when they need to scavenge for food. The group of kids living a Waitrose supermarket is beginning to run out of options. When a mysterious traveler arrives and offers them safe haven at Buckingham Palace, they begin a harrowing journey across London. But their fight is far from over-the threat from within the palace is as real as the one outside it.
Full of unexpected twists and quick-thinking heroes, “The Enemy” is a fast-paced, white-knuckle tale of survival in the face of unimaginable horror.

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. 

The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives – the dark conspiracy behind the infected. 

The truth will get out, even if it kills them.
