Page & Screen Pairings: For the Zombie Newb


Warm Bodies is the clever, funny, sweet and, yes, undead retelling of Romeo and Juliet. I know some of you aren't super into zombies (say whaaaaaat?!) and that's exactly why I'd recommend it as a movie and/or book (preferably both). It's a zombie story for zombie-haters. If upon reading/watching it, you discover that zombies are your thing, here are a some other introductory zombie reads that will fuel your need for some BRRAAAIIIIINNNSSS.



The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks: This book is the perfect survival guide for all your zombie woes. Fully illustrated and exhaustively comprehensive, covering everything from zombie behavior and physiology to defense tactics, weaponry and basic survival skills. This book is a must-have for any zombie aficionado.

Breathers: A Zombie's Lament by S.G. Browne: Breathers is a dark comedy with surprisingly touching moments and enough gore to please all zombie fans. It's the zombie rom-com that will make you want more of zombie rom-coms.

Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen: This is my favourite zombie-based series. If scares and zombies aren’t your thing, that’s okay, this book is the perfect introductory to both. The first in a series, it screams with LOL moments and tons of cinematic action. Trust me, our feisty narrator Sarah won’t allow you to regret a thing.



So, what do you think of my matches? Have you seen this movie or read any of these books? Are there any books/movies you'd like to have recommendations for? I want this to be an interactive feature so tell me what books/movies you'd like to see paired. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. I've seen this movie but haven't really read many zombie books, and now that will change thanks to you. Married with Zombies sounds exactly like what I was looking for (well they all do, but this one stands out to me the most)! I have added it to my TBR pile. Love this feature! :D

  2. I'm so glad you included Breathers! I don't know many people who've read it, but I think it's a real gem (if you can call gross zombie books "gems" -- I know I do!). I love your pairings concept!

    1. Thanks Jillian! Warm Bodies is an excellent book although a little darker than the movie version. I still highly recommend it though!
