In honor of Short Story Month 2011, I have (temporarily) set aside The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan in order to read a few stories in Zombies vs Unicorns. It’s a good thing these stories are a lot of fun because my fingers have been twitching with anticipation ever since I got the newest Kane Chronicles book! I’ll get to it this weekend, I promise.
Back to zombies and unicorns. Yesterday I declared my loyalty to Team Zombie without having read any of the stories. Since then I have read the first two unicorn stories and one zombie story. Based on entertainment value alone, the unicorns are winning so far (shocking, I know. Well played Team Unicorn, well played). However, I am not yet convinced that the unicorn is better AND Carrie Ryan is up next, who I am sure will release me from whatever spell the unicorns may have put on me. Team Unicorn must be resorting to some underhanded trickery to lure me away from Team Zombie. Their insecurity is sad, but understandable. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be on a team with Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Carrie Ryan, Scott Westerfeld, and Maureen Johnson?
Jealous of the fun I am having? Well, join me in the zombie/unicorn madness! It’s fun and the stories are short so you’ll fly right through them. I am curious, are you Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?
Braaaaaaaains, um, I mean, uh Happy Reading!
