Happy Holidays!

Feed by Mira Grant

I was a little leery about getting into this book, but I am so glad that I did. What a great zombie book! Instead of dealing with what happens when the zombie outbreak happens, its dealing with how people go on living when the outbreak is controlled but not gone, and it does it very, […]
