Married With Zombies (Living with the Dead, #1)Married With Zombies (Living With the Dead #1)
by Jesse Petersen
Paperback, 244 pages
Published September 1st 2010 by Orbit
A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Meet Sarah and David. Once upon a time they met and fell in love. But now they're on the verge of divorce and going to couples' counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things - the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client's throat. Meet the Zombies. Now, Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But, just because there are zombies, doesn't mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don't eat their brains, they might just kill each other...

Q&A Week 1
My perfect arsenal.
1. In chapter 2 Sarah has to put her marriage therapist "to rest" with a letter opener. Let's see your weaponized letter opener in mid-action! No letter opener? Think fast! You need to rescue your friend/significant other! What are you going to use when no actual weapons are available? No knives, no guns! Show me what you've got!
LOL!  A heart shaped rock that I painted.  I use it as a paper weight.
2. In chapter 2 Sarah is wrestling with Dr. Kelly and David can't seem to find a weapon to help his dear wife with. Until...Sarah yells at him to use something on Dr. Kelly's body, which he grabs and smashes into her head. I want to see your most killer pair of this item!
My favorite boots doubles as a handy weapon.
3. In chapter 3, Sarah hears an unexpected noise in the bathroom while she's nervously peeing. She grabs "the closest thing there was to a weapon in the room". I want a picture of the same type of item that is closest to soft edges people. They won't do the brain damage necessary to kill the living dead.
The thickest book I own is about Egyptians.
4. At the end of chapter 5, Dave gives Sarah a weapon just before they are leaving their apartment to pay a little visit to Jack & Amanda's apartment. Let's see a picture of yours (same type of item).
My handy ARMY issued OD green flashlight.  Nice & heavy and never dies.
5. How do you feel about the book up to this point? Any thoughts you want to share?

I'm reading this aloud as my friend listens.  I'm thinking he should start his own blog, because he's been providing alot of commentary.  He wants everyone to know he is an official Zombie-ASS-Kicker!  What with the actual crazies in the news, we're taking notes...JUST IN CASE.  So far we're loving Married with Zombies.

I can't wait to see what next week brings both with the story and this hunt.



  1. You be cracking me up. Love the poses. I was telling my hubby about the Dr Phil book & killing the zombie with the toilet lid that was left up...funny stuff.

    1. Yeah, my husband was rolling his eyes when we got to the toliet seat scene. Oh geez, now he has ammunition to keep doing it...

  2. You have the perfect arsenal! I am so standing behind you in the zombie apocalypse!

    I adore those boots!

    1. Thanks! :) I was thinking of adding my fake Tiffany Lamp.... I mean "faux" Tiffany Lamp, but my heart rock paper weight has better grip!

  3. LOL- great pics!!! The flashlight kinda looks medieval, a total torture weapon....:D

  4. Your flashlight wins for best flashlight weapon I've seen so far!

  5. Ha!! LOVE your pics!
    I loved doing this weeks. Eager to see what next week holds! lol
    YES! Me and the hubby are all WHAT IF, about some zombies. lol

    Happy "Zombiefied" Reading!

  6. OH an Army flashlight, NICE!!! I need to get my hands on one of those, especially with all the zombie-like weirdos in the news.

    My bf is actually reading the book too. I read the chapters I need to and then I give it to him to read at work. Love this series :-)

  7. Hi Katrina! Nice to see you on this read along. You are definitely prepared, A rock ought to do the trick. Those boots have some killer spikey heels, great for jabbing in the eyes. I would love to hear your husband's commentary, that is so cute he listens while you read aloud.

    1. Thanks Heidi! I think I'll add some of his wise cracks in the next post.

  8. Oh I LOVE those boots!! I also like the rock idea. So perfect!

    I'm with Heidi... that would be great!

  9. Those boots would do some serious damage! Plus, they're so cute. I bet the zombie sludge would wipe right off. And the rock is perfect in that it looks harmless being all cute and stuff and then BAM! zombie head caved in.

    I suddenly feel like I need that flashlight. I have this worry of all my things dying because of the batteries no longer working.

    *makes plans to venture to the army supply store*

    And the Egyptian book looks fatal. I'd keep it close for attacks. I also wish I was there to listen to your husband. I love when they get involved. My husband used the possibly forthcoming zombie apocalypse to persuade me we needed bullets. I'm so easy. ;)

    1. LMAO! Yeah, you have to take great care when preparing for undead trouble. Thanks so much for visiting me!

  10. Katrina! First, I have to say I love your blog design. Soooo Pretty! *le sigh*

    Also, awesome pictures. You are something fierce. Zombies beware!
