Theme Song Saturday (19)



Welcome to Theme Song Saturdays, a new weekly meme, hosted by yours truly, in which we share our love of music and books! Since I love books and music, this meme is for fun to try to incorporate those two loves! Whenever I read a book, a certain song -- kind of like a soundtrack or theme song -- plays through my head.

Want to know how to play? Head over to this post to read the rules and get the code.

Here's my pick this week:




Gunpowder and Lead by Miranda Lambert was purely brought on by American Idol.  While I was reading about Nix in the pits facing Charlie, one of the contestants on American Idol was singing this song.  I felt, especially given the setting in the book, this song was a perfect fit.  Granted, it doesn't encompass the book as a whole; however, it could be Nix's theme song.  In the first book, her family was destroyed and she was kidnapped to be put into the z-games.  Even after surviving that and helping to take down Gameland, people in the Rot and Ruin still underestimated her. 


What is your song this week? Leave a comment with the link your theme song!

Here's the questions for this week:

Q: Do you read one book at a time or do you switch back and forth between two or more?

 

A:

Unless a book really strikes my interested or I have been told not to read it in the bathtub, I read one book at a time.  Since I end up deeply engrossed in a book, it is hard to switch between several different books.  It breaks the image and end up having a hard time concentrating on both books.  Also, after finishing my degree, I promised myself that I would never rush through a book.

Here's my teaser this week:
With that the preacher replaced his hat, tugged his lapels to adjust the hang of his jacket, and walked back into the woods, where he vanished so quickly into the shadows that the whole encounter might have been a dream.  Tom and the other stood where they were for a full five minutes, listening first for Preacher Jack's soft footfalls and then to the forest as the ordinary sounds one by one returned."

Book Review -- Dearly, Departed

Title:  Dearly, Departed
Author:  Lia Habel
Genre: YA post-apocalyptic steampunk with zombies
Pages:  Hardback 467
Published:  2011
Opening Lines:  "I was buried alive.  When the elevator groaned to a stop in the middle of the rock shaft, I knew I was buried alive."

"Loves conquers all, so they say.  But can Cupid's arrow pierce the hearts of the living, and the dead—or rather, the undead?  Can a proper young Victorian lady find true love in the arms of a dashing zombie?

"The year is 2195.  The place is New Victoria—a high-tech nation modeled on the manners, mores, and fashions of an antique era.  A teenager in high society, Nora Dearly is far more interested in military history and her country's political unrest than in tea parties and debutante balls.  But after her beloved parents die, Nora is left at the mercy of her domineering aunt, a social-climbing spendthrift who as squandered the family fortune and now plans to marry her niece off for money.  For Nora, no fate could be more horrible—until she's nearly kidnapped by an army of walking corpses.

"But fate is just getting started with Nora.  Catapulted from her world of drawing room civility, she's suddenly gunning down ravenous zombies alongside mysterious black-clad commandos and confronting "The Laz," a fatal virus that raises the dead—and hell along with them.  Hardly ideal circumstances.  Then Nora meets Bram Griswold, a young soldier who is brave, handsome, noble . . . and dead.  But as is the case with the rest of his special undead unit, luck and modern science have enabled Bram to hold on to his mind, his manners, and his body parts.  And when his bond of trust with Nora turns to tenderness, there's no turning back. Eventually, they know, the disease will win, separating the star-crossed lovers forever.  But until then, beating or not, their hearts will have what they desire."

Thoughts:  This book has been on my list to read for awhile.  However, due to various circumstances, I couldn't buy the book.  Once it was sitting in my house begging me to read it, I knew it had to wait for my Zombie Month.  Sadly, it didn't actually make it into the actual event . . . :(  That being said, it was worth the wait!

This book had me from the prologue.  When my husband came home for lunch, I forced him to sit and listen while I read it for him.  It was startling, heart rending, well written, and simply the best start to a book I have read in a long time.  Lia has the ability to fully put the reader into the moment.

Even though I don't know a lot about steampunk, I really liked where she went with the genre.  The basic premise of steampunk is that, in an alternate past, we went with steam power instead of electricity.  And, as part of steampunk, modern society is very similar to Victorian society.  In Lia's book, after the fall of Western civilization and the second Civil War, society desired to return to a perceived Golden Age.  From handed down knowledge and memories, they grasped onto the Victorian era as that Age.  While they had a high-tech society, they modeled the fashion, social classes, morals, and traditions of the Victorians.  However, on the fringes, there is a group known as the Punks who fight against this lifestyle.  I really enjoyed this take on steampunk.  Instead of giving us an alternate history, she gives us a new look into the future.  To me, she did a good job of making the genre her own and, in turn, really added something.

I loved the concept that zombies are not always the mindless, evil dead trying to eat people.  The fact that you can keep your sanity after dying was an interesting idea.  Also, having the good dead eat tofu as a protein source instead of flesh was awesome!  I felt Lia thought a lot about how zombies would survive without the flesh, how they would keep them from rotting away, and so on.

The characters and scenery were very rich!  Even though she did not have any one character take over, I felt she did an amazing job of fleshing them out (pun intended ^_~) and giving them the time they needed to develop.  Chas is one of my favorite characters, and I loved the little things Lia did to show her past.  I think showing Chas's writing at the end of the book was a good way to do this.  Further, I felt having chapters from different POVs was an exceptional way to give the audience a well-rounded view of the story.  Since each chapter was written from a first person POV, the audience was able to see things from various different angles and get a better idea of what was really going on.  I also appreciated that one of the POVs of Wolfe.

At the end of the book, it was interesting to see that our society has not progressed as far as we wold have thought.  The ending finds people devolving into actions very similar to the races riots.  In addition, I found myself wondering if they would mirror the laws of interracial marriages.

This book was amazing!  The writing style was out of this world!  I felt completely drawn into the story.  Honestly, I found myself trying to prolong the experience of the book as long as I could.  I didn't want it to end.  However, when a few of my inter-library loans came in, I realized I couldn't continue dragging my feet.  I can hardly wait for September and the second book.  Lia has really grabbed me with this one.  This book is one of my all time favorite zombie novels!

Here's the questions for this week:

Q: What is the longest book you’ve read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads?


A:

The Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey averages over 600 pages per book.  While I have not read it in awhile, those used to be one of my favorite series.  I think Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard is the longest book I read.  It topped out at well over 1,000 pages.  Out of all the 600+ page books I have read, my two favorite are Battlefield Earth and It by Stephen King.  It is also over 1,000 pages.  However, unless the book is really, really dragging, I do not notice the page limit.  When I finish a book, I'll look to keep track of the number of pages I have read during a year.

What are you're answers this week?

A Letter

To my readers:

I'm sorry that Zombie Month wasn't more of a big to-do.  Starting the new job was a little more time consuming than I originally foresaw.  I thought I would have some down time to talk about the books and do other things like a giveaway.  Unfortunately, all of my down time was spent either sleeping or zoning out in front of the TV.  What little time I did have to read was spent in books that were easily digestible.  That is not to say, however, that they lack substance or I did not like them.  I some how managed to time when I read each book perfectly.  However, with all of that said, I want to thank S.G. Browne and Rhiannon Frater for the wonderful guest posts they wrote!  I wish there had been more time to spend concentrating on them and possibly giving away one of their books.  Either way, it seemed to turn out well.

With that said, things did not work out at the new job.  Starting with a trainer who didn't training me and moving to another that did proved to be too-little-too-late.  Unfortunately, they did not take that into consideration and decided to let me go.  While it upsets me and I feel as though I did not get a fair chance to succeed, it does give me more time to read and enjoy the books. 

Even though it has officially ended, there is still another book I plan to review that was supposed to be part of Zombie Month.  When I am finished with that, I plan on rounding it out with my favorites.

Thanks for hanging in there with me and reading the guest posts! 

With all the best,

Zombie Month Book Review -- Eat, Slay, Love

Title:  Eat, Slay, Love
Author:  Jesse Petersen
Genre:  Post-apocalyptic
Pages:  Paperback 261
Published:  2011
Opening Lines:  "Have you ever felt like you were on a treadmill, but no matter how fast or far you ran, you never dropped those pesky last fifteen pounds?"

"Sarah and David have survived the zombie apocalypse.  They stood side by side and fought the undead, mad scientists, and even bionic monsters . . . until the unthinkable happened.  A zombie bite.  But no even that could stop them.

"Now, with a possible cure in hand, they're headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored 'Wall.'  They're feeling pretty optimistic


~Jacket copy


Thoughts:  I am still waiting for Dave to stop sleeping.

Honestly, the back doesn't really give the book justice.  However, I'm not sure how it could without giving everything away.  That being said, I as really curious how the bite would affect David in the future.  Something like that isn't just miraculously cured without a result.  I felt that was a major win.  Since the book is written from Sarah's POV, I was glad the author didn't try to fully explain it.  I get really tired of stupid, campy explanations by characters.  Sarah had my response—you don't walk away from something like that without leaving lasting results.

This book picks up about a month or more after Sarah and Dave leave the Kid.  They are on their way to the Wall with the cure nestled safely between Sarah's breasts.  After fighting hoards of zombies, clearing road ways, and picking up supplies, they find themselves with a 'stalkerazzi' reporter in tow.

The majority of the book is spent with Sarah, Dave, Nicole, and McCray trying to survive, determine the nature of Dave's alterations, and finding the Wall.  Parts of this book were definitely worth and eye roll and others left me roaring!  At times, I felt that Petersen is over-the-top with Sarah's cheesy and snarky response to the apocalypse.  It gets to a point that it feels to contrived and distracts from the story.  However, in a weird way, that is what makes Sarah so endearing!

The ending of the book demands a sequel!  Even though I would love to spend a long time talking about the book, I feel that I would be in danger of giving everything away.  As with the other books, it is well written, has a good plot, is enjoyable, and a quick read.  When I need something light, I would definitely turn to her books.  That is not to say, however, that they lack in plot and character development.

Honestly, if you've enjoyed the previous books or just looking for a laugh-out-loud zombie book, this series needs to be at the top of your list!

Zombie Month Book Review -- Zombie Queen of Newbury High

Title:  Zombie Queen of Newbury High
Author:  Amanda Ashby
Genre:  YA with zombies
Pages:  Oversize paperback 199
Published:  2009
Opening Lines:  "Mia Everett was doomed.  It was a fact she had known ever since Rob Ziggerman walked into biology class half an hour earlier."


"Quiet, unpopular, noncheerleading Mia is blissfully happy Rob—super hot football god—has asked her to prom!  Life couldn't get any better.  Enter Samantha—cheerleader queen and Miss Popular—who has made it quite clear that Rob should be her prom date.  Mia is desperate to make sure she doesn't end up dumped in front of the whole school.  So with prom in just a few days, she turns to Candice—her holistic, hypochondriac—and decides to try a love spell to make Rob stay with her.  Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus on her whole class instead, and she is their zombie leader!  At first, she loves all the attention.  But when she learns from zombie hunter hottie Chase that her classmates will actually try to eat her in a few days, she's not too thrilled.  She's sure she and Chase can figure something out, but in the meantime, she's suggesting that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy."

~ Jacket copy


Thoughts:  After reading the title, I was rather intrigued by the book.  However, I admit that I was a little skeptical about whether the book would be good and still manage to have a plot.  Even though this book is full of teenage angst, it was a surprise.

When Rob starts sitting by Samantha in bio and forgetting about her, Mia freaks out that he is backing out on his invite to the prom.  While accompanying Candice to a holistic shop, she is convinced into casting a love spell to make sure her plans with Rob will not be ruined.  However, after casting the spell at a senior assembly, something different happens.  Candice starts eating meat, everyone is focused on her, she is receiving junk food gifts in her locker, and so on.  While she could deal with a love spell, she is not ready to find out that her whole senior class and a few teachers have been turned into zombies.  And this new found popularity comes with a price—she is at the top of the menu.

In a lot of ways, this book was extremely predictable.  However, I felt that the author gave a new and interesting twist to the zombie virus and how it manifests.  Also, the whole concept of a zombie queen.  Even though her sister pissed me off to no end, I really felt all of the characters did a good job supporting the plot.  They also made exceptional zombie scenery.

This book is extremely light and a fast read.  There are times I rolled my eyes and got upset by their portrayal of Candice and Latin (*ahem* I did take a few years of Latin and spent 5hrs/day translating the Odyssey, Ovid, etc.).  However, I ended up enjoying this book.  With all the stress of my job, it managed to keep me from going insane.

If you need a light read and like zombies, I would definitely pick this one up!
