Hello friends! I’m back from a short blogging hiatus to tell you about a fun new zombie book perfect for the season!
Anna and the Apocalypse by Katharine Turner & Barry Waldo is a hilarious musical horror mashup. Though I haven’t quite finished the book, I can tell you from first impressions it’s going to be FUN. I love when horror mixes humor to make the blood and guts a little more tolerable, and this book does just that. But it also touches on the real struggles of being a teen in a small town when all you want to do is get out and see the world.

Anna and the Apocalypse is a horror comedy about a teenager who faces down a zombie apocalypse with a little help from her friends.
Anna Shepherd is a straight-A student with a lot going on under the surface: she’s struggling with her mom’s death, total friend drama, and the fallout from wasting her time on a very attractive boy. She’s looking forward to skipping town after graduation–but then a zombie apocalypse majorly disrupts the holidays season. It’s going to be very hard to graduate high school without a brain.
To save the day, Anna, her friends, and her frenemies will have to journey straight to the heart of one of the most dangerous places ever known, a place famous for its horror, terror, and pain…high school.
This novel is inspired by the musical feature film, Anna and the Apocalypse.
