"Hollowland" by Amanda Hocking

Only Amanda Hocking could right a zombie novel I would actually enjoy (though, to be fair, I've never tried to read a zombie novel, but picked this one up because it's by Hocking).  Hollowland, the first in The Hollows  series, is the story of Remy, one of the few survivors in a zombie investation, on a mission to find her brother who was evacuated from their "secure" quarentine when it is attacked by said zombies.  Remy sets out across the country with nothing more than the supplies in her messenger bag, a single gun for protection, and two young girls that follow her out of the quarantine.  She only knows that her brother has been moved to another site somewhere in the north.  Along the way, Remy and crew set out on an extremely dangerous journey.  Not only will they encounter zombies (of course!) but some of the most excentric characters I have seen in a long time.

One thing you should know about me; I am over-the-top squeamish about many things.  You will not catch me watching medical shows or movies filled with blood and gore.  Yet, somehow I read (and enjoyed this book).  Yes, there were a few times that my stomach turned because of the descriptions- zombie blood sounds absolutely lovely by the way- but I still found myself eager to find out what would happen next.

I have read by My Blood Approves and Switched by Hocking.  Hollowland is yet another series that I am excited to complete.  Like many, many books, my biggest complaint is that it ends on a major cliffhanger.  Of course I cannot wait to get a copy of Hollowmen and find out how Remy fares.  Until then, I have a lot of other books to read!

Another cool thing about this book?  It is currently available for free on the Kindle!

Happy Reading!
