31 Days of October! Favorite Series

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. 
The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives—the dark conspiracy behind the infected. 
The truth will get out, even if it kills them

Shaun Mason is a man without a mission. Not even running the news organization he built with his sister has the same urgency as it used to. Playing with dead things just doesn't seem as fun when you've lost as much as he has.
But when a CDC researcher fakes her own death and appears on his doorstep with a ravenous pack of zombies in tow, Shaun has a newfound interest in life. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked them, but the conspiracy is far from dead.
Now, Shaun hits the road to find what truth can be found at the end of a shotgun.

Rise up while you can. -Georgia Mason
The year was 2014. The year we cured cancer. The year we cured the common cold. And the year the dead started to walk. The year of the Rising.
The year was 2039. The world didn't end when the zombies came, it just got worse. Georgia and Shaun Mason set out on the biggest story of their generation. They uncovered the biggest conspiracy since the Rising and realized that to tell the truth, sacrifices have to be made.
Now, the year is 2041, and the investigation that began with the election of President Ryman is much bigger than anyone had assumed. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, the surviving staff of After the End Times must face mad scientists, zombie bears, rogue government agencies-and if there's one thing they know is true in post-zombie America, it's this:
Things can always get worse

Hello Fellow Readers,

I've wanted to talk about the Newsflesh Series in so long but I kept putting it by the wayside. Why? I am not sure but I finally have found the perfect time! Mira Grant is one of my Favorite author. I was introduced to her from the feed series and I have not looked back since. I discovered Feed back in 2010 when it first came out at San Diego Comic Con, at a publisher's booth. The cover didn't catch my eye, but I remember being asked a series of questions on what type of book I liked and was given this book as a recommendation. After reading the back I decided 'Why not?' 

I am so glad because as soon as I read Feed I wanted to keep reading. This was so much more than a run of the mill zombie book. First, of all the outbreak is already done with, they know what caused it and they know have to avoid it. Second, the Mason's are journalists and they are following a political campaign. Soon conspiracies, action and suspense come crawling in you just can't stop reading. Each book made me want more and I was actually somewhat sad that  it was only a trilogy. Now there are a couple of novellas and a prequel book because once you read your hooked into Grant's world and you don't want to stop.

The Newsflesh series was also the first series that I read with my husband and it sparked many booksy conversations that literally made me fall in love with him all over again. So yes, sentimental value does play a little part. I recommend this series to everyone and while you may not love it like I do, I think you can appreciate how unique Grant's story is.
