Oh, for the love of brains!.. Zombie romance?

Whether you've always been a hardcore zombie fan, or you're like me and your craving for zombies began in '04 with Snyder's remake of "Dawn of the Dead", or even if you're new to the world of the walking dead, there is now enough zombie literature and media to satisfy anyone's cravings.

Zombies are becoming increasingly popular in the fantasy genre and many writers are straying away from what would be considered the norm.

Instead of shambling, mindless monsters who mumble unintelligibly and try to eat your face, we now have zombies who live relatively normal lives, snack on neatly pre-packaged brains, and occasionally fall in love.  

Some readers may not be interested in decaying heroines and undead romance. As for me, I am ecstatic about it! I hope to see more of my favorite authors venture into the fascinating world of reanimated corpses. 

So what do you think? Is it something you would be interested in reading about? 

Is it something you already love?

Here are some of the zombie novels and comics that I've enjoyed so far. Feel free to leave a comment about any that I haven't listed. If you recommend it, I'll try it out.

@ VanesMate (Can I still call you Mrs. V?) -

Thank you! Great profile pic!

@ Mariya - I know! I started noticing the same thing. Lots and lots of book review blogs.

Since I threw this together in one night, I still have only a vague idea of what I'm doing. So I will definitely be asking for your help soon. I have a few things that I would like to know how to do.
