=== September Zombies schedule of events
with links to posts and giveaways from the other Zombiettes===


  1. This is a difficult depends on the kind of angels one thinks of. Let's say Team of not so perfect Angels! :P

    If I win I would love to receive Strange Angels by Lilith St. Crow.

    Thank you for this giveaway, Velvet! :D

  2. Angels are better when they are problematic ordinary fellow, like in Wings of Desire (Wim Wenders).
    Zombies are better for fighting, they just keep on multiplying!
    I'm sticking with zombies!

    As for the book, I am going with Halo.

  3. Yeah, I'm torn between zombies or angels -- are we talkin' Old Testament angels? Because if so, I'm going with angels. Or the angels from Philip Pullman's books. They're pretty badass. I'd love to be entered in this giveaway -- can I say I'd like either book? ('Cuz I would!) :)


  4. Signed the guestbook.

    Go Team ZOMBIE!!

    I would definitely choose Strange Angels.

  5. I'm torn. I'd really like to see some zombie angels, I think. You know, when they Fell, they really FELL.
    But I think I'll have to go with zombie. Angel books always sound good, but they never are. Have yet to read one I liked. Always whiny and preachy, never kick-ass.

    So definitely Strange Angels.

  6. Are you Team Zombies or Team Angels?
    I'm in between. I like them both. But if I had to choose then it would be Zombies.

    But I really like the story of Halo, so therefore I would love to win Halo. ;)

  7. You have to ask? Go team zombie!!! Kick some Angel butt!
    And I'd pick: Strange Angels (zombie included)

  8. You mean there is a team BESIDES Team Zombies???? Really? Oddsfish! I simply can't believe this, Dear V.

    Who (or what) in their right braiiinzzz ... er ... um ... MIND, would pick any team other than (drum roll please)
    TEAM ZOMBIES 4-E-VAH!!!!!!!!

    I am *drooling* over Strange Angels :D

    Mary D
    a/k/a MAD

  9. I find this a difficult question...I mean, I LOVE zombies, but Angels are just! This is tough!

    Ok, ok, I go with angels. But, like, AWESOME angels. :)

    As for which book would I choose...Halo :) I REALLY want to read that one!

    Thanks for the AMAZING giveaway!!!

  10. Team zombies 100%
    I would choose strange angels.

  11. I am Team Angels. I'd want Halo.

  12. It's Team Angel for me.

    I would love to have Strange Angels.

  13. Hmmm I think if I was in the mood for something scary I'd pick zombies, although I do love the Generation Dead series, but I like angels too. I'm going to say I choose zombies.

    If I won I'd pick Halo.

  14. I am team Angels.

    If I won I'd love to have Halo.

  15. that's a tough one...I guess Team Angel, as long as they are fallen angels that is :)

    I would love to win Halo

  16. Unfairly I have to say angels because I have not read any zombie books. I've read books with zombies in it somewhere but not in the fore front.

    If I were to win I am thinking of Halo since my library has Strange Angels- both are on mt TBR list so I'd be happy with wither!=)

  17. I choose angels and here's why...with zombies, you pretty much know what you're getting. You know what they are, where they came from and what their motivation is. The world of angels is infinitely more interesting because they are mysterious...what is it like where they come from? Do they have free will? Do they always choose to do the "right" thing?

    I would choose Halo =)

  18. I have signed the guestbook. I would choose angels because I yet a read a Zombie book.
    I would love to win Halo

  19. I'd have to say angels, not because I like them too much (though I love Carter, from Georgina Kincaid series), but because I don't really like zombies.

    I'd love to win Halo, since I've already read Strange Angels.

    Thanks for the chance!!

  20. I'm team zombie and my choice would be Halo!

  21. I'm team zombie!... But I'd like to read Halo.


  22. I am team angles and really want to read Halo. I love the cover!

  23. Team Angels :D If I win, I would choose Strange Angels.

    thank you :D

  24. Zombies simply because im semi anti angel these days loll

    would love to win

    Strange Angels

    awesome give away i signe dthe guest book

  25. Team Angels! In my mind, zombies are covered with slimy green stuff and their heads are about to roll off their decaying bodies... argh! On the other hand, angels are.... well, heavenly.
    I've already read Strange Angels so I'd choose Halo. You can reach me at

  26. I'm always going to be Team Zombie, but if I won this, I'd have to go with Halo because I already own (and LOVE) Stange Angels.
    But if it came down to choosing zombies or (fictionalized) angels, I'd have to say zombies simply because there's a lot more wiggle room. I mean, angels are real, and I don't think you should stray to far from the truth when writing about real, super powerful, heavenly spirits.

  27. i'm definitely team zombie, but if i win, i'd have to pick halo, because i have strange angels (awesome book, btw).

  28. Wow! That's a hard one... I love zombies but I've also read some awesome fallen angel books. I'm Team Switzerland on this one :P
    I'd choose Halo but I wouldn't mind winning Strange Angels at all :P

  29. Team Zombie!!

    But i would like Halo please :)

    Great Giveaway! Thanks :D

  30. I will have to go with team angels but I love the other too great giveaway thank you very much! I would love to read halo!

  31. Team Angels all the way!

    I would love to read Halo!

    Also don't forget to check out my amazing blog design giveaway that ends 9/29!

    Ashley's Bookshelf

  32. Definitely team angel, I don't think I would be able to handle all of the decomposing flesh.

    Strange Angels for me please!

  33. Team Angels forever!

    I'm actually writing a book about Angels now... well, okay, they're not actually angels, but they call themselves Angels. So I'm a little loyal to the idea of Angels.

    & Strange Angels would be my pick :)

  34. Definitely Team Angels. I'd love to win Halo.

    Thanks for the giveaway,

  35. Team Zombie

    I'd love to win Halo.


    alterlisa AT yahoo DOT com

  36. Team zombie

    and I'd like the ARC of Halo. I already have Strange Angels.

  37. Team Angel all the way!!!!

    I'd like to win Strange Angels!!!

  38. Team Zombie!! But I would like Halo since I already have Strange Angels. :)

  39. I am oh so totally Team Angels. Zombies are cool and all, but they always seem to be paired up in a fight against things that are way cooler (like the unicorn/zombie fight - I mean, helllo! Unicorns, duh!). Maybe they should be pitted against, I dunno, mosquitoes. Then zombies might stand a chance.

    Anyhow, if I win, I would want Halo.

  40. Hi there!
    Wow, first of all Lili St Crow (Lilith Saintcrow) is among my fave writers XD

    That is a hard question... Hmmmm I mean would you choose keeping in mind the desire to win, or what you like the best?

    I think if it came down to it, Angels would win because let's face it... Zombies have no real power -even though they are sooo cool- and if an Angel cuts their head of or something they are really gone...

    If I won, I would love the Strange Angels books by Lili! <3

    P.S.: I have signed the guestbook.. I am always Yllektra or Yvantis everywhere! lol
    I guess Team Angels then! :P

  41. Why hello there!

    Nice giveaway you have here! As for the question.. hmm.. I love my zombies, but I'm Team Angel, sadly. Let's face it, zombies are no match for those pretty angels.

    And I'd love to win Halo.

    I've signed the guestbook!

  42. I signed the guestbook.

    I'm Team Zombies!

    It's a hard choice but I think I would want Strange Angels.

  43. angels

  49. That is a difficult decision, but I guess I'm Team Angel. I would pick Halo.

  50. Angels because they're just more appealing to me and somewhat alive especially compared to demons.

    I would loooove Halo!


  51. Well, I like zombies but I'm going with team angels.

    I would love to win either one, but I'll pick Halo.

  52. I'm definitely team angels. But I do like a good zombie story. I'd love to win Halo. Thanks for the awesome contest!

  53. I'm team zombie. I know this is going to sound strange, but angels freak me out. I don't know why... maybe from being an ex-catholic school girl? I'd love to win Strange Angels.

  58. Thanks for another great giveaway! I'm definitely an angel fan! Haven't read one zombie novel yet. And I've been yearning for Halo so long, so even though the other book looks great, I'd like Halo.
