My Wishlist: Zombie Edition

So many zombie books coming out soon! Here are some that I can't wait to read.

1) Flesh and Bone by Jonathan Maberry, to release on 9/11/12

I just finished Dust and Decay (review to come soon) and I am anxious to see where Jonathan Maberry will take the story. Benny and his friends are searching for the jet plane they saw in the first book and encounter such dangers as death cults, wild animals, and faster and smarter zombies. I am practically jumping up and down with excitement for this one.

2) Shadows by Ilsa J. Bick, to release on 9/25/12

I read Ashes last year and loved it. I've heard this installment goes more into horror territory, which I am happy about, and will possibly be even more dark than its predecessor. Alex becomes disillusioned about her world and fights against the adults who try to use her, the other survivors that don't trust her, and the Changed that will eat her.

3) Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter, to release on 9/25/12

I haven't heard a lot about this one, but it references Alice in Wonderland and has zombies. Sold for me. Alice will become a zombie fighting machine in order to avenge her family, but she must trust Cole Holland, super bad boy with secrets. The bad boy part sounds like there is much potential for romantic lameness. Also, the cover is a little too romantic for the subject matter, but the same is true for Lia Habel's Dearly series, which are super awesome amazing. So looking forward to reading this even with some misgivings.

4) The Inexplicables by Cherie Priest, to release on 11/5/12

Any book from Cherie Priest's Boneshaker universe is a must read for me. This one is about an orphan named Wreck who deals the sap, produced from the Blight gas that turns people into zombies. He is pretty sure he's being haunted by Zeke Wilkes and goes over the wall into Seattle because of his guilt. He encounters the Inexplicables, mutated, non-zombie monsters. The premise sounds very promising and i can't get enough of Cherie Priest's writing.

Any zombie books you need to read?
