Synopsis:

School’s out for the end of the world.

Anna and the Apocalypse is a horror comedy about a teenager who faces down a zombie apocalypse with a little help from her friends.

Anna Shepherd is a straight-A student with a lot going on under the surface: she’s struggling with her mom’s death, total friend drama, and the fallout from wasting her time on a very attractive boy. She’s looking forward to skipping town after graduation–but then a zombie apocalypse majorly disrupts the holidays season. It’s going to be very hard to graduate high school without a brain.

To save the day, Anna, her friends, and her frenemies will have to journey straight to the heart of one of the most dangerous places ever known, a place famous for its horror, terror, and pain…high school.

This novel is inspired by the musical feature film, Anna and the Apocalypse.

Peppermint Hot Cocoa

And what pairs well with a zombie apocalypse book set during Christmas? Of course, a nice cup of hot cocoa!

Ingredients:

  • Water or Milk (you choose)
  • Hot Cocoa Mix
  • Peppermint Extract or Syrup

Instructions:
Be sure to follow the instructions on your hot cocoa packet/tin. I always warm up my water in the microwave. Stir the cocoa mix into the hot water. Next, I add a few small drops of peppermint extract. And don’t hold back on topping your cocoa with whipped cream, marshmallows, or candy cane pieces. Enjoy!

Note: Thank you to Fierce Reads for providing me a final copy of this book to read and review for free in exchange of an honest review. All statements and opinions are my own.

Synopsis

Not you without me, not me without you.

Two proud kingdoms stand on opposite shores, with only a bloody history between them. 

As best friend and lady-in-waiting to the princess, Branwen is guided by two principles: devotion to her homeland and hatred for the raiders who killed her parents. When she unknowingly saves the life of her enemy, he awakens her ancient healing magic and opens her heart. Branwen begins to dream of peace, but the princess she serves is not so easily convinced. Fighting for what’s right, even as her powers grow beyond her control, will set Branwen against both her best friend and the only man she’s ever loved. 

Inspired by the star-crossed tale of Tristan and Eseult, this is the story of the legend’s true heroine: Branwen. For fans of Graceling and The Mists of Avalon, this is the first book of a lush fantasy trilogy about warring countries, family secrets, and forbidden romance.
