Staff Picks: Top Five Zombie Books (as requested)

Dude, it’s zombie season! I ask—“Is it ever not Zombie season?” Anyway, right now we’ve got zombies on the brain (in the brain?) 

I digress.

Just ask the HPB Bibliomaniacs at Store #08 in Richardson, TX and they’ll tell you, if they aren’t looking for books ABOUT zombies, they’re shelf-searching FOR zombie shoppers. One of our Facebook fans, Ruggy B., suggested we compile a list of top zombie reads. Ruggy, you got your wish! Here’s what the folks at HPB #08 put together.

Top Five Requested Zombie Books:

1- World War Z by Max Brooks

2- The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman & Tony Moore

3- Pride & Prejudice & Zombies by Jane Austen & Seth Grahame-Smith

4- Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks

 5- Zombies vs. Unicorns ed. by Holly Black & Justine Larbelestier

  . . . Not to be confused with the Top 5 books requested BY ZOMBIES:

1- Rich Dad, Dead Dad

2- Slow Walking for Dummies (pictured below)

3- Flesh Dependent No More

 4- How to Start Worrying People and Stop Living

5- Oh, the People You Will Eat!


Thanks to our undead-loving Richardson employees, especially Matt Rox, for this sweet illustration! Have you hugged a Zombie today? Just kidding—DO NOT HUG ZOMBIES.

If you visit HPB this spook-filled weekend, and you happen upon a zombie, don’t forget to snap a pic and tweet us! Or for a less scary game, check out the titles on the spines (pun intended) behind the zombie — brilliant, right? And HIL-arious. Just be sure to keep your neck protected while you crane your head to the side.

  1. If you guys like any of the above books, then I urge you all to read Night of the Living Trekkies by Kevin David Anderson. t's absolutely amazing! It's about a zombie apocalypse that takes place at a Sci-Fi convention in Houston, TX and all of the people dressed up in their sci-fi best have to escape and fend for their lives to survive. If you like star trek, sci-fi or zombies, then this one is for you!

  2. One of my favorite zombie was Michael Jackson's thriller. Haha. But anyway i like those books with cover that are graphically scary. I was attracted to it. ________________________
