Weekly Wrap-Up 2020: The Twenty Sixth

Weekly Wrap-Up 2020: The Twenty Sixth

Hey Bookworms, It’s July now. Because time no longer means anything. On the upside, my child is contentedly watching some outer space educational cartoon set to a hip hop soundtrack. There are also robots. I’m not sure what’s going on, TBH, but it’s one of the better things we’ve stumbled across on YouTube. Anyway. I have two books to tell you about. Let’s talk about them, shall we? The Boyfriend… Read more »

Conversations With My Husband: White Walkers

Conversations With My Husband: White Walkers

Salutations Bookworms! I never can predict when Hubs is going to say something blog-worthy, but, well, this happened while we were watching Game of Thrones this week. You’re welcome. Jim: You know, I wouldn’t mind working for those White Walkers. Katie: You mean the ice monsters that control an army of the undead? Jim: Yeah. I mean, I wouldn’t be a mindless zombie or whatever, but maybe they need an accountant. Katie:… Read more »

The Girl With All the Gifts by MR Carey

The Girl With All the Gifts by MR Carey

Holy Macaroni, Bookworms. I’m not sure how coherent this post is going to be, because I’m still trying to figure out how to get my jaw off the floor. I recently decided to put my Audible subscription on hold because Scribd is a better deal for my voracious audio book appetite at this time. However, before pulling the proverbial plug, I needed to use up one last credit. I checked my… Read more »

Zone One by Colson Whitehead

Zone One by Colson Whitehead

Happy Monday, Bookworms! Got a case of the Mondays? Perhaps you’re feeling a bit… zombie-like? You’re in luck, because today we’re going to talk about Colson Whitehead’s novel Zone One (yes, there are zombies!) As with any number of the books I read, I was recommended this book by the brilliant Sarah Says Read. That girl never steers me wrong. Zone One is set in the post zombie-apocalyptic world. The US government… Read more »

Raaw-Oooh-Ugh-Blurgh (That’s Zombie for THE WALKING DEAD!)

Raaw-Oooh-Ugh-Blurgh (That’s Zombie for THE WALKING DEAD!)

Raaw-Oooh-Ugh-Blurgh Bookworms! Y’all know I love me some zombie lit. You may not know that AMC’s The Walking Dead was my gateway drug into zombie lore. Thus, it might come as a surprise that until recently I’d never read the comics. I KNOW! Thankfully, I remedied the situation (with the help of my indulgent Mother-in-Law who didn’t blink when I put The Walking Dead: Compendium One on my Christmas list.)… Read more »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

Salutations Bookworms, Some things just go together. Coffee and cream. Peanut butter and chocolate. Spaghetti and meatballs. Jane Austen and undead creatures. Yep, I recently enjoyed the audio book version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It’s an odd little mash-up of Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice and Seth Grahame-Smith’s vision of how Austen’s England would have responded to a zombie apocalypse. The version I listened to (wahooooo library!) was… Read more »

If you like The Walking Dead, Read This! (Top Ten Tuesday)

Howdy Bookworms! It’s Tuesday again, which is mind boggling, because seriously, where does the time go? This week the ladies of The Broke and the Bookish have challenged us to make a list “for fans of.” IE, if you like a certain TV show, here’s a bunch of books you might dig… So OF COURSE I went with one of my favorite shows EVER, The Walking Dead. Because ZOMBIES! 1…. Read more »

I Don’t Even Want to Go There! (Top Ten Tuesday)

I Don’t Even Want to Go There! (Top Ten Tuesday)

Greetings Bookworms, It’s Tuesday and the ladies of The Broke and the Bookish have a fabulous topic for us today. They’ve asked us to list out societies we’d never want to live in and/or characters we’d never want to trade places with. Dystopias and post-apocalyptic novels are some of my favorite books, so I’m really excited! Let’s get to listing, shall we? 1. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (my review):… Read more »

Blackout by Mira Grant

Blackout by Mira Grant

Happy Halloween, Bookworms! I’m looking forward to trick-or-treaters tonight! It’s supposed to rain, so perhaps we won’t reach our record of 300 ghosts and goblins, but it should be fun regardless. Anyway, today also marks the end of my all-scary-all-the-time reading binge. I’m celebrating by discussing the final installment of Mira Grant’s Newsflesh trilogy, Blackout.  As I mentioned when we discussed Deadline, it’s impossible to discuss the final installment of a trilogy without spoiling things… Read more »

Deadline by Mira Grant

Deadline by Mira Grant

Hey There Bookworms! You’re reading Words for Worms from my new self hosted site. Eeep! I tried to post a notice on the old account, but it errored out, so ignore that if you saw it. You probably don’t need to do a darn thing to keep following me as I’ve been using wordsforworms.com as my site address for well over a year. I’m neurotic, I believe in overkill. I… Read more »
