  7. I put a zombie book on my list too. I'm sure the genre will be played out in a year so, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts. ;)

    Bossypants was excellent, and even though I generally hate dystopian novels, I kinda sorta maybe liked Divergent just a bit.

  8. I can't believe I haven't read World War Z. I've been wanting to read it for years.

  9. I haven't read Bossypants, but I think I would definitely enjoy it!
