Waiting on Wednesday - Zombies vs. Unicorns

Zombies vs. Unicorns Edited by Holly Black and Justine Larabalestier

Summary from Simon & Schuster Fall 2010 Catalog:  It's a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn? In this anthology, edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier (unicorn and zombie, respectively), strong arguments are made for both sides in the form of short stories. Half of the stories portray the strengths--for good and evil--of unicorns and half show the good (and really, really bad-ass) side of zombies. Contributors include many bestselling teen authors, including Cassandra Clare, Libba Bray, Maureen Johnson, Meg Cabot, Scott Westerfeld, and Margo Lanagan. This anthology will have everyone asking: Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?

Zombies vs. Unicorns sounds like it will be a fun book.  I can't wait to read all of the stories and see which side gives a stronger argument.  Right now I'm leaning towards Team Zombie, but lately all the books about unicorns have made them sound pretty awesome.  Are you Team Zombie or Team Unicorn?

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine


  1. This sounds really great! Ooh and it's by some of my favorite authors. I haven't heard of this one so thanks for sharing!

    Btw Team Zombie ;)

  2. Thanks for sharing this one! It sounds great and something my students would love as well.

  3. Lol it does sound like it's gonna be funny. Zombies and unicorns aren't two supernaturals that you'd typically think of at the same time. I haven't even dabbled in the unicorn thing yet...are there any other YA books on them besides Diana P's? Love all the authors that are involved. Meg's story is gonna be hilarious, for sure!

  4. This is my WoW for this week, too! Great pick.
