AusYABloggers #77 Saturday – Deadline

Hi folks, sorry I’m late with this post tonight – I’ve spent most of the day recovering from the week. Are you more exhausted than usual? Global trauma will do that I suppose. Just keep away from the disinfectant injections ok?

Anyhoo, welcome to this week’s #77Saturday. This week I’m featuring a snippet from Deadline, which is the second in Mira Grant’s Newsflesh series.

Here’s how you play:

  1. Find a book.
  2. Turn to page 77 or 77% of an ereader.
  3. Find a bit you like.
  4. Post it and link back to AusYABloggers.

“Thanks. Now take off all your clothes.”

What?” demanded Kelly, eyes going wide. “Shaun, are you feeling all right?”

“I’m fine, I just need you to strip.”

“I’m not going to take off my clothes!”

“Actually, princess, you are,” said Becks, standing and moving to stand beside me. “We need to check you for bugs. Don’t worry. You don’t have anything we haven’t seen before.”

I think this is the first non YA series that Imogen has devoured (not sorry) before me. I was a little broken at the end of Feed, but Imogen has encouraged me to pick up and keep on going. Grant/McGuire’s writing is impeccable as always. And there are zombies.

What are you reading at the moment?
