Recommend a… Book by a Male Author


Recommend A… is a fun meme created by Chick Loves Lit that provides a weekly prompt for a book we would recommend. This week’s prompt is to recommend a book by a male author.

Man, this is a hard one for me. I was torn, but since I recommended The Passage last time, I’m going to go with Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry.

I had never heard of this book before, but I was in the library and passed by it on the shelf. The thick size and creepy spine caught my eye and I grabbed it. I was expecting a basic zombie book, but it was so much more. It really surprised me, in the best way possible.

I won’t gush over it, I did enough of that in my review, but I recommend it highly to anybody who’s looking for a great zombie novel.

I love to hear your thoughts and read every single one of them.

  1. I’m starting this one next! :) Can’t wait for some zombie action! Great rec.

  2. Yes! I love this series so, so much. When I’m recommending zombie books to someone this is always one of the first two series that comes to mind (the other is Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick). Plus Jonathan Maberry seems like a very nice guy, which is an added bonus.

  3. I bet it’s a wonderful recommendation. ;) I’ve heard seriously amazing things about this one and I cannot wait to give it a try. I’m way too curious about it! Love the feature!

  4. Thanks- I like the cover, but now I’m double intrigued (that it’s more than just a zombie novel). :)

  5. I really want to read this series. It sounds so good! Great choice & thanks for sharing! :)
