You probably already know how popular zombies are right now. Just turn on the TV, go to the movies, play video games. Zombies are everywhere! There are even studies looking at WHY zombies are so huge in our popular culture right now.
And, to satisfy your zombie addiction, there are plenty of zombie books in the Youth Services room (NOT plenty of ZOMBIES; plenty of zombie BOOKS!) Here are just a few:
Zom-B by Darren Shan
When the news starts reporting a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's father thinks it's a hoax; but even if it isn't, the two of them joke, it's only the Irish, right? That is, until zombies actually attack the school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers. But when they come face-to-face with the ravenous, oozing corpses, all bets are off. There are no friends. No allies. Just whatever it takes to survive.
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
When her entire existence is shattered in the blink of an eye, Ali is forced to partner with secretive bad boy Cole Holland to avenge the deaths of her loved ones by returning an undead army to their graves.
Zombie Baseball Beatdown by Paolo Bacigalupi
While practicing for their next baseball game, thirteen-year-old friends Rabi, Miguel, and Joe discover that the nefarious activities of the Delbe, Iowa, meatpacking plant have caused cows to turn into zombies.
Undead by Kirsty McKay
On a school trip to snowbound Scotland, several students become infected and turn into hungry zombies, leaving a small band of survivors to take refuge in the school bus.
Broxo by Zack Giallongo
In this graphic novel, Broxo, the only surviving member of a tribe of barbarians, spends his time on a mountain hunting and avoiding the man-eating walking dead until everything changes when Zora, a foreign princess, arrives on the mountain seeking Broxo's lost tribe.
Ashes by Ilse Bick
Alex, a resourceful seventeen-year-old running from her incurable brain tumor; Tom, who has left the war in Afghanistan; and Ellie, an angry eight-year-old, join forces after an electromagnetic pulse sweeps through the sky and kills most of the world's population, turning some of those who remain into zombies and giving the others superhuman senses. The first in a trilogy.
Happy reading and good luck sleeping,
