As always, a big shout out to Carmel at Rabid Reads for hosting this meme!
My pick this week is actually for a self-published book I saw over on Book Chick City. Covers of self-pubbed books usually aren’t the greatest but this one is magic:
I love the grittiness and the colours and the way Kansas is walking alone, machete in hand. The cover really evokes a strong sense of impending menace and isolation. Gorgeous!
Taking on the Dead is the first book in the Famished trilogy and it comes out in April or May.
Taking on the Dead blurb:
Life for Kansas was perfect until the day the world changed.
She has been hiding out for four years in solitude. It’s the only way to survive. The only way not to draw the living dead. Helping a small group of people, she learns the new world might not be what she assumes. Venturing out of her refuge and comfort zone, she meets Rudy, who helps her find a greater purpose. She realizes that the world has moved on without her. Only it’s not what she expects. Her knowledge of the living dead grows and only makes her more curious as humanity continues to hang on by a thread. While on her search for answers she finds comfort in new friendships and love, but her past seems as if it will haunt her forever.
Kansas takes it upon herself to help other survivors, which would be easy if the famished were the only obstacles.
