Month of Thanks

Hi Y’all! It is November and that is always the month I am reminded that there are tons of things that I am thankful for in my life. This year November will be known as the Month of Thanks. I am going to do 30 days of Thanks here on Geeky Bloggers Book Blog! Each day I will highlight one author (and the book they wrote that moved me) and one blogger (and their awesomeness) that I am thankful for! These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love.

Month of Thanks

I am thankful for Rhiannon Frater and her As The World Dies Trilogy.  The last entry into this series Siege is currently sitting in my top 10 for this year.  I was gutted with emotion while reading the final chapters and was desperate to just gather everyone up in a big group hug.  It is not often that a book can make you cry, laugh, and scream in the midst of its pages but Siege will make you do just that.  Even though this is a “Zombie” series, it is truly one of the most compelling stories you will ever read!

 

Month of Thanks

Siege is the conclusion to Rhiannon Frater’s As the World Dies trilogy, which should appeal to fans of The Walking Dead. Both The First Days and Fighting to Survive won the Dead Letter Award from Mail Order Zombie. The First Days was named one of the Best Zombie Books of the Decade by the Harrisburg Book Examiner.

The zombie illness has shattered civilization. The survivors who have found tenuous safety in Texas defend their fort against the walking dead and living bandits.

Katie has made peace with the death of her wife and is pregnant and married to Travis, who has been elected Mayor. Jenni, her stepson, Jason; and Juan—Travis’s righthand man—are a happy family, though Jenni suffers from PTSD. Both women are deadly zombie killers. In Siege, the people of Ashley Oaks are stunned to discover that the vice president of the United States is alive and commanding the remnants of the US military. What’s left of the US government has plans for this group of determined survivors

I am thankful for Ashley the Bookish Brunette and all of her awesomeness!  She truly is one of the funniest women I have ever had the chance to become friends with.  She never fails to make me giggle and her love of all things Zombie has landed her firmly on my favorite people list!   She is the gal you want around during the zombie apocalypse if for no other reason than she is their Queen (you never know she make work out a deal where they bypass eating your brain)!  Seriously though she is just an all around great person that will make you smile!
