50/50 Friday - Favorite Book Starting with A/Z

50/50 Friday is hosted here on this blog and over at Blue Eye Books


What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday (something bookish of course!). If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let us know!


Topic for the Week
Favorite Book Starting with A/Z

Now for this I will not be using a book that starts with an article but one that actually starts with the letter A. So here goes! 

Favorite Book (A)
Alice in Zombieland (Alice in Zombieland #1)




If anyone had told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.






Favorite Book (Z)
The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead


Fully illustrated and exhaustively comprehensive, this book covers everything you need to know, including how to understand zombie physiology and behavior, the most effective defense tactics and weaponry, ways to outfit your home for a long siege, and how to survive and adapt in any territory or terrain.


Top 10 Lessons for Surviving a Zombie Attack 

1. Organize before they rise! 
2. They feel no fear, why should you?
3. Use your head: cut off theirs.
4. Blades don’t need reloading.
5. Ideal protection = tight clothes, short hair.
6. Get up the staircase, then destroy it. 
7. Get out of the car, get onto the bike.
8. Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
9. No place is safe, only safer. 
10. The zombie may be gone, but the threat lives on. 


Don’t be carefree and foolish with your most precious asset—life. This book is your key to survival against the hordes of undead who may be stalking you right now without your even knowing it. The Zombie Survival Guide offers complete protection through trusted, proven tips for safeguarding yourself and your loved ones against the living dead. It is a book that can save your life.

Okay, so I kind of cheated for Z but I've not read any other books that actually start with Z. While getting ready for this post, I saw the book Zorro, maybe I'll read that one in case something like this ever happens again. 

I hope you enjoyed this topic and I can't wait to see your answers! So until next week butterflies!

  2. I never read the Zombie Survival Guide by Brooks, but I read and loved World War Z. I really want to read Alice in Zombieland one of these days.

  3. I had the same problem with not having read a book that actually started with Z! Really should have thought of that when I suggested the topic... :) I seriously need to read Alice in Zombieland one of these days, though. It's been on my TBR FOREVER and I keep forgetting it's there until someone mentions it. Really, I should be doing a TBR clean-out so I can prioritize a little more.

    1. Hey it was fun trying to find a book with a Z! You've not read Alice in Zombieland?! Yes, I hope you can get to it soon. Though I understand, my TBR is so out of control it's going to come alive and eat me one day...
