Warm Bodies

The past few years we’ve seen a surging movement in films and T.V. to capture modernized tales of the supernatural and undead, and we, the fans, can’t seem to get enough. Warm Bodies shows that the zombie sub-genre has not run out of steam yet and offers up a healthy dose of something fresh.

The premise is similar to Shaun of the Dead in that there is a bit of romance, a dash of comedy, and a light sprinkling of horror mixed with some nasty gore but with a twist. Unlike many other zombie films this movie places the zombie population as the hapless protagonists who apparently have a smattering of higher thought functions. Oh and an insatiable hunger for brains naturally...

Princeless Vol 2 Issue 2

Adrienne is hot on the trail of her older sister Angelica. But in order to save Angelica, Adrienne will have to face a real monster – jealousy. Meanwhile, another member of the royal family has disappeared and one of King Ashe’s closest allies may be to blame!

I normally don’t find myself feeling the need to start off talking about the cover of a book, but the front of Princeless Vol #2 is just too funny not to.  I won’t deny that books with risque covers draw me in, but I can also appreciate the argument being made on how relevant they actually are. Regardless of your stance on this though, I personally got a laugh out of this.

So, onto the book itself...

The Guardian’s Playlist

It’s a rare thing these days when I pick up something at a convention, tuck it into my backpack, take it home and finally find the time to read it simply to fall in love with it. When I met the author at Wizard World – Ohio, I thought she was this fantastic woman with the right convention attitude and I had hopes that she would do well that weekend. Her son made me laugh and I thought they made a fantastic pairing and it was pretty great to see them sharing the convention scene. However, like so many things I pick up, I didn’t put much hope in the book wow’ing me. Before I go on and tell you just how wrong I was, let me show you the back cover of the book so you can see what the book is about:
