Grade: A+ (Five Stars!)

This was wonderful! I was obsessed with Abigail from the first book. This sweet child who has a zombie as a pet. It was wonderful way to help children work on acceptance with such a fun twist that’s so relevant to our society today. Zoo Day is even better. In this next story, Abigail is going to the zoo, but once she gets there her poor zombie has to deal with the people who don’t accept him. He just wanted to play with the children and smilie at the babies. In this story, Abigail’s uncle has to help people come to understand just because the zombie looks different and a bit scary, that he’s not harmful and he’s actually very friendly. I loved this story. I loved when the zombie swam with penguins and the monkeys stole his arm! This is just precious! Plus, The Risen fans will get a special easter egg of an appearance of one of the members of G.R.I.T! How great is that?! Overall, fantastic book with a great lesson and humor for the whole family! Check this out as a wonderful addition to your family library this holiday season!

*I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

About The Author:

Marie F Crow is the author of the post-apocalyptic series, The Risen. She weaves her stories around the human element of the horror verses the “monsters” themselves. She believes that the real horror of life does not come from the expected, but from the unexpected responses of the human nature and what depths of trauma a person has to survive in certain situations. She began writing The Risen series when feeling that the popular genre was slipping too deep into the realm of pure “slasher” and forgetting what the horror of zombies can mean for a story.

Now with her children’s series launched, Marie hopes to use her favorite “monster” as a teaching tool to inspire children to understand that not everything that looks scary, is scary. With Abigail and Her Pet Zombie series, Marie hopes to further spread her love for all things “that go bump in the night” with small children showing them that it’s okay to be different and to embrace those same differences in those around them.

Facing 25: What have I learned?

So, I have recently turned 23… which, then you say, how are you facing 25?! Two years goes by extremely fast, just ask all the people who have recently graduated from a 4 year college. It flies, and I’m trying to make sure that in two years, my apartment has¬†furniture¬†in it, I am putting enough aside in my 401k to get a match from my employer, and am still able to pay my bills, student loans, and hopefully aquire¬†a car payment to lump into that.¬†

Lofty goals I know, but I’m trying to be smart, which is not easy. I love to buy things, I constantly think about going out to dinner, buying a new pair of jeans, or buying a free books from the Kindle store that I can’t get through library.

So what am I doing? 

I am reading blogs, especially those tailored for 20-30somethings, looking to learn to budget, save and invest. Like Money Under 30, which lets you sign up and sends you helpful planning tools as well as newsletters. I am adverse to saving, and even worse at telling other people no. I love to buy people gifts, and spend money on other people.

Oh well, once the hallowed halls of college kick you out, it’s a fun world, you face job hunting, rejection, entry level positions, health care plans, 401k, and life insurance plans!¬†

To anyone reading this still in college, please, please enjoy yourself, and remember, it sucks to be in school, but it sucks worse to start paying off student loans and feeling like you learned nothing, gained nothing but an expensive piece of paper. Luckily, I feel good about what I got from school, but I also know, I could’ve gotten more.

Oh well, I’ve got two years.. we’ll see if I get to where I wanna be. Check in with me Nov 16th, 2014, ok?

Learning does not get easier…

I’ve realized that learning new things doesn’t even get easier. I thought learning how to multiply was hard, but learning the¬†intricate¬†details of my new chosen employment is just as hard. You can tell when something is hard my the increasing pain and tension between your¬†shoulder¬†blades, well, at least that’s how I tell. Never left a math class without that pain.¬†

I’m coming into my new job during a time when everyone is trying to restructure. They restructured my job before I got it, they are restructuring the processes we go through, which means, my learning curve is double, learning what used to be and what is to be.¬†

My new habit? Meditative breathing and a bit a easy stretching… every time this pain builds up, I attempt to breathe it away.(and if that doesn’t work, I pull out the Beyer Migrane)¬†

But the point is, learning never gets easy, so there’s no reason to just suck it up and learning everything for as long as you can.
