So sorry, I forgot to change the quote. Whoops.

“They go slowly and carefully, covering each other. Parks drops down on one knee, rifle set to full auto, ready to do a kneecapping sweep.”

I just finished M.R. Carey’s The Girl With All the Gifts, which has been on my radar for a while and I finally got my hands on a copy. It was exciting and one of the most unique zombie novels I’ve come across. I will be posting a review this Saturday if you are interested in checking it out. Excerpt taken from pg. 156.

From Goodreads:

“Melanie is a very special girl. Dr. Caldwell calls her ‘our little genius.’ Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite, but they don’t laugh.”
