Okay, okay, I have to admit my own secret, guilty pleasure: reading zombie books. They are just so good! But, I always have to stay true to my team, even if they don't have a lot of members sticking around: unicorns. And, sure, they may fart rainbows and smell like lavender, as depicted in Meg Cabot's short story, but that doesn't make them any less likeable. Right. Right?

Whatever.

Zombies vs. Unicorns was a-mazing. Some stories were better than others, but that's expected. And, yes, the zombie stories were better than the unicorn stories. That's okay. I also loved how it was organized-little unicorn icons and little zombie icons for those of you who couldn't tell which story was which.

But my absolute favorite part was the commentary. Two authors arguing about mythical creatures is very funny.

The last thing I have to say about Zombies vs. Unicorns is the wide range of topics all the stories cover. The most peculiar one was One Thousand Flowers. That made me think-a lot. Read it. See what you think.

I love anthologies and was glad when there was finally a YA one!!! We discussed all the stories in my book club is you want to stop by and look. And we even discussed who won... the Zombies or the Unicorns!!
