    The Zombie Whisperer by Jesse Petersen

    Although the story is quite predictable and the cover is a little off, still this final book in the Living with the Dead series is a better ending than I have expected. In this last book, we follow Dave and Sarah who are living a quiet life in a farmhouse somewhere in Montana after their heart pounding adventure in the previous book. This time though, Dave was reluctant to leave the farm but Sarah thinks otherwise, until a chopper landed on their yard revealing Nicole and The Kid asking them to go back to some lab in Seattle with them, wherein they have continued the research about the cure and…

    Eat.Slay.Love by Jesse Petersen

    Yes, I pledge guilty for being addicted in reading the books in this series and you can put all the blame to Jesse Petersen. I just had to buy the third book (in ebook form) in the Living with the Dead series after finishing the second one. Although the second book was lengthy enough, still I can’t get enough of Sarah and David; I just sort of fell in love with them and their story. I honestly liked this book better than the previous ones in the series. I guess it’s because of the less predictable scenarios and more action filled pages. Zombies doesn’t seem to be the main problem of Sarah and…

    Flip This Zombie by Jesse Petersen

    As I have mentioned with my previous review of the first book in the Living with the Dead series, the story left me asking for more and true enough, the second book in the series filled the lacking space that the first book left. So I acquired an ebook of the second book and started reading away as if I’ve nothing to do at all. In the second book, we follow Dave and Sarah forming some sort of a trade business during the apocalypse by means of zombie extermination. They were tasked to kill zombies for other survivors in exchange for supplies, and with their team work and what seemed…

    Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen

    Thanks to Manel Loureiro, I decided to go on a Zombie novel reading marathon. I am having my internship and the vacant time could get really boring, so I decided to give Jesse Petersen a shot with the first part of the Living with the Dead series, Married with Zombies. Married with Zombies tells us the tale of a married couple Sarah and David who, at the time of the spark of the apocalypse, were at the brink of divorce and are going to couple’s counseling. During one of their sessions they noticed that the road was unusually practically empty, considering that they live in Seattle wherein traffic was just…

    Long Long Week

    It has been quite a while since I last blogged about something elaborate, but it’s nothing compared to the what seemed to be indefinite hiatus I took about a month ago. Anyway, the college tour is this weekend, Sunday to be exact. It has been moved a couple of times already and the final date didn’t really made me happy. We’re going to Vigan and I’m supposed to be enthralled or something, but I am not. Somehow the thought of leaving too soon without ample time to save up for it decreased all the excitement. Add to that the fact that Felice and I’s worst enemy could be there too,…

    Shoes, Books and Food

    Yesterday was a Saturday, which means it’s the time of the week wherein Mac and I would go to random places together and eat–a LOT. ^_^ We decided to go to my hometown in Pasay to look at Class A Nike shoes at Cartimar, Libertad. We were actually going to buy basketball shoes for his dad in U.K., although I could tell that he’s been itching to buy his own new pair of shoes, but he just bought a new pair not over a month ago. Anyway, since he works at night, we decided that I’ll just meet him outside his office building in Ortigas on Saturday morning, so I…

    Book Review: Bohemia by Veronika Carnaby

    Sometime in mid-December last year, I received an e-mail from Ms. Veronika Carnaby herself, asking me to write a review for her debut novel, Bohemia. Along with the e-mail came a free digital copy of the novel itself, and I couldn’t be more grateful about it. I still could not believe that she chose me and my blog to write and feature a review about her novel; it’s such an honor to be one of the chosen few. So enough of raving, here’s the book’s plot: Book Summary: In her debut novel, Veronika Carnaby picks up where the Beat Generation left off. Set in 1960, Bohemia chronicles a group of…

    MonDATE

    Today was almost filled with disappointments and difficult school work, but thank God for my fiance, Mac, for saving me from all of it. I went back to my college this morning instead of going to the school where I was having my internship to just basically run a few errands for my thesis and my incomplete subjects. Getting the form and the manuscript was easy, but having the routing form signed by the editor was as difficult as walking on thin ice. She wouldn’t sign our routing form just because of wrong spacing and indention; minor things that could always be fixed and she said it in such a…

    Bonne Année

    04Happy New Year! This is quite a late post, but I got quite busy with my new job and my unexpected return to my internship. But more of that later, my family had an 80’s themed New Year’s party last December 31st and it totally rocked more than we expected. My aunts and my parents were the ones who organized the family party, and it was really fun and exciting. My aunts were all there, including my younger cousins and everyone dressed up in their own 80’s inspired outfits. I personally chose a more simpler one. I just went with the John Lennon shirt that was given to me by…

    Book Review: Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End

    I kicked off my 2013 with a Zombie novel because I was really getting impatient from waiting for the season comeback of The Walking Dead. I am just really grateful of Goodreads as it has been my guide to great books recently. I have my Goodreads account for a while now, but it wasn’t until recently that I made use of it. LOL I found a good zombie book written by a Spanish author and the first book in his series was translated in English, so I decided to go with it. I immediately looked for an ebook, bought it and just started with my adventure. Plot from Goodreads: The…
