A book with wildly varying short stories; all well written but so different in tone. Much to my surprise, I found myself on #teamzombie by the end

I always feel like compilation books are hit or miss. I have yet to read one that I like all the short stories inside. I would say I liked maybe half of the stories. For me it was #teamzombie
Book 15 of 2019

I really enjoyed all the variations in the different stories. It really illustrates how different people can take a similar idea and make it their own.

I had no idea what this book was when I picked it up. The title just intrigued me! I loved it though. So many different takes on two very common creatures in literature and I didn‘t dislike a single one. Team zombie all the way!!

I couldn‘t pass up these beauties I found at Half Price Books while shopping for my niece‘s birthday and my giveaway winner!
Got to love a colorful stack!

Hopefully I will get both packages in the mail tomorrow!

This was a collection of compelling and varied stories. My favorite by far was "Bougainvillea" by Carrie Ryan. I have to say that I think Team Zombie came out as the victor...

There were a few stories that I really liked and the rest I was pretty neutral about. But none of them were bad, in my opinion.

Anyone else seen Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix? It watches like one of these short stories read! I've seriously enjoyed this collection and this show the is perfect TV pairing!

haileybean I haven't finished this book, but there's a short story in it that made me giggle so hard. I vaguely remember the storyline, but I think it's about a girl who has to save baby unicorns? That was a couple years ago, and I honestly just remember laughing because they were like puppies. 2y

I wanted to love this book, it seemed right up my alley. However, to me these stories made little sense. I think I am just too old to enjoy this.

Has anyone read this? I'm not going to lie, I read the intro of authors bantering over weather zombies or unicorns were better and it was hilarious. The whole book seems pretty awesome. It's a bunch of short stories alternating between sweet unicorn stories and decaying zombie stories written by top fantasy writers like Garth Nix, Cassandra Clare, Scott Westerfeld, and a bunch more. Anyway, I'm totally team unicorn and I'm really excited about it.

I used to think that every published author was a better writer than me. Thank you Zombies vs. Unicorns for proving me wrong multiple times in the same book.

For today's #somethingforsept, the #shortstory collection which has caused me to be on the receiving end of more weird looks in the cardiology waiting room than all the other books I've brought over the last decade, combined. 😂 Apparently I am the only heart patient around here who finds zombies and unicorns entertaining...?

If you like zombies, read this book!
If you like unicorns, read this book!

The stories are so different and there's bound to be one that you love and read over and over! I love the Gay zombie story personally. It was refreshing to pick up this book(team unicorn) and get a couple of LGBT characters in these amazing short stories!
