Zombies Vs. Unicorns – J..

Posted December 28, 2010 by Lisa Mandina in / 2 Comments

This is a book I’d been hearing a lot about because of the authors that I follow on Twitter. I guess the idea for the book started out by an argument between these two authors, Justine Larbalestier and Holly Black, about which were better, unicorns or zombies. This led to several short stories being written […]

I found this sitting in the stack of ARC’s at the bookstore a couple weeks ago. I took it home, but wasn’t quite in the mood for it until I finished the Mortal Instruments series. It wasn’t too bad of a book. I enjoyed reading about the time period. Basically we follow 3 girls that […]
