Books, Brains 'n Blood Read-a-Thon: Start + Goals + Reading List + Updates + Wrap Up!

The Books, Brains 'n Blood Read-a-Thon is hosted by April & Pabkins @ My Shelf Confessions, as part of their Vamps vs Zombies event.

To check out this event & to sign up for the read-a-thon, visit this post HERE!

My goals are to read at least 2 books & to participate in at least one mini challenge, and hopefully to participate in the Twitter Party, too.

My Reading List:

Even though we can read whatever we want, I decided to read vamp & zombie books. But, half of these are funny (from what I've heard/read about them), and I'm feeling in mood for books like this at the moment, let's hope my mood won't change ;)

I'll also update this post with my reading progress!



Ok, so I reached my goals :) I read 2 books, one with vampires - Bloodsucking Fiends - and one with zombies - Alice in Zombieland. Both were so much fun :) I also participated in 3 of the mini challenges, and I made it to the last half hour of the Twitter Party on Saturday. Hopefully, I'll finish another zombie book before the end of this read-a-thon - Allison Hewitt is Trapped - so far I'm loving it, and I have around 200 pages to go.


Wrap Up: 

Ok, so as I already said, I completed all of my goals. In the end I read 3 books - two with zombies: Allison Hewitt is Trapped & Alice in Zombieland, and one vamp book: Bloodsucking Fiends.

I'd like to thank April & Tabitha for hosting this read-a-thon, it was fun, as well as hosting their awesome Vamps vs. Zombies event, so THANK YOU! 


  1. WOOT! I've read three of your books on the goals list! Dearly Departed, Allison Hewitt is Trapped (freaking loved it) and Bloodsucking Fiends (was so totally fun) I hope you enjoy all of your books!!!!

    1. Thanks :) It's time to finally read AH is Trapped, it's been sitting on my shelf for some 2+ years now :) And yeah, I started Bloodsucking Fiends today, and it's really fun :)

  2. Vampires and zombies... good genre! They seem to be the prima donna's of the horror genre. I prefer psychopaths, mysterious antagonists, mad scientists, and strange situations, but these should be quite enjoyable. These do seem to be satirical, but hope you enjoy! :)

    1. I love those, too, but I read almost anything :) although I'm not that big of a fan of vampires, and I prefer zombies from these two, I love humorous vampire books :)

      Thanks, Josh!

  3. I actually haven't read any of the books on your list but they all sound and look really good. Good luck with your progress. Don't forget to enter the challenge I'm hosting!
