My Wishlist: Zombie Edition 3

More zombie books I salivate over!!

1) Sadie Walker is Stranded by Madeleine Roux

Goodreads synopsis:
Sadie Walker fights for survival as the dead close in...In the months since The Outbreak, Seattle has become a walled citadel - the Infected are kept at bay but the city is rife with kidnappings, religious cults and black-market dealings. And things are about to get much, much worse. A group of frustrated religious fanatics, the 'Repopulationists', destroy part of the wall and zombies swarm the city. Devastated by the brutal kidnapping of her nephew, illustrator Sadie Walker flees Seattle with her best friend Andrea and secures passage on a boat with no destination. The ragtag bunch aboard the ship are thrown ashore by a storm and stumble across what appears to be a thriving survivors camp. The shipwrecked group, relived to find food, shelter and friendship, relax into the rhythm of the community's existence. But then people start to disappear...

I loved Allison Walker is Trapped, so I can't wait for the follow-up. I'm not sure if any of the characters from the first one will appear, but I'm hoping for at least small appearances. I'm also curious to see if there is a similar frame story that was present in the first. This comes out 1/31/2012!

2) Blackout by Mira Grant

No official synopsis or cover is released yet, but I need this book now! Deadline is a magnificent book and the ending is completely shocking. It made me sad that I read it soon after it came out so I have to wait so long for the last book! This series is excellent and really delves into the science of zombies while keeping up a great plot with political intrigue and realistic characters. This one comes out 6/7/2012.

3) Dust and Decay by Jonathan Maberry

Goodreads synopsis:
Six months have passed since the terrifying battle with Charlie Pink-eye and the Motor City Hammer in the zombie-infested mountains of the Rot & Ruin. It’s also six months since Benny Imura and Nix Riley saw something in the air that changed their lives. Now, after months of rigorous training with Benny’s zombie-hunter brother Tom, Benny and Nix are ready to leave their home forever and search for a better future. Lilah the Lost Girl and Benny’s best friend Lou Chong are going with them.

Sounds easy. Sounds wonderful. Except that everything that can go wrong does. Before they can even leave there is a shocking zombie attack in town. But as soon as they step into the Rot & Ruin they are pursued by the living dead, wild animals, insane murderers and the horrors of Gameland –where teenagers are forced to fight for their lives in the zombie pits. Worst of all…could the evil Charlie Pink-eye still be alive?

In the great Rot & Ruin everything wants to kill you. Everything…and not everyone in Benny’s small band of travelers will make it out alive.

I just read Rot and Ruin and I can't wait to get my hands on this sequel! I've heard nothing but good things about it and the cover is completely awesome. I think I'll be shedding a few tears over this one too, so I'll get the tissue box ready.

Any zombie reads you guys can't wait to read??
