Although The Reading Grove primarily shares reviews on books falling into the realms of Mystery or Sci-Fi/Fantasy, we do hold an appreciation for literature from a variety of categories. That got us thinking, what is your favorite genre of book? Take our poll at the bottom of the page.

Did you know zombies are the new vampires? My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland is the first in the new series White Trash Zombie and is the first zombie book I have read. It wasn't too gruesome and had lots of mystery. Angel isn't a mindless flesh-eating machine, although, it seems to take her awhile to figure things out that are pretty apparent to the reader. My Life as a White Trash Zombie is a good start to a new series and I can't wait for the next installment.

A friend asked me to read this book and after we both read it we would go watch the movie. I have to say this book is predictable and not very interesting. It lacks dimension and depth. It starts very slow, somewhere in the middle it picks up, but ends on a very flat note. There are so many directions a book about racism and oppression can go but Kathryn Sockett stayed very benign. Kathryn Sockett even has the nerve to compare one of the main characters to Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird.
