Goodreads Synopsis:

PopCap’s immensely popular Plants vs. Zombies game finally gets the plant-filled, zombie-zapping comics treatment it deserves! The confusing-yet-brilliant inventor known only as Crazy Dave helps his niece, Patrice, and young adventurer Nate Timely fend off a “fun-dead” neighborhood invasion in Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon! Winner of over thirty “Game of the Year” awards, Plants vs. Zombies is now determined to shuffle onto bookshelves to tickle funny bones and thrill…brains. Paul Tobin (Marvel Adventures, Falling Skies) and Ron Chan (The Guild, Husbands) join forces with a bevy of battling plants to deliver a hilarious, all-ages, action filled zombie romp to your neighborhood!

My Thoughts:

I requested this graphic novel from NetGalley awhile back but then I could not download the file.  If NetGalley’s files cannot download straight to the Kindle, for some reason, I have a problem getting them.  I figured my son would love this story and bought it from Amazon, for a reasonable price of $8.99, for him for Christmas.  My son and I have played Plants vs Zombies on the Xbox, on my Kindle, and on the PC.  He loves it.  I admit I’ve become addicted also.

Likes:

  • reflects the spirit of the game perfectly
  • the colorful, bright pictures
  • the story line is interesting and easy to follow
  • brings the characters to life, the plants were so cute
  • entertaining for any age

Dislikes:

  • some pages are a bit too busy, too much going on

Would I Recommend:  Yes

I received this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  This, in no way, affected my opinion or review of this book.

Weekly Recap – 09/16/13 to 09/22/13

I got a little more reading done this week but not as much as I had hoped for the Tackle Your TBR Pile Read-a-thon.  Game of Thrones is taking me longer than I expected.  I downloaded the audio book from my library and that is helping to get through it faster, plus I can listen to audio books at work.

I Read:

I finished If There Be Thorns by V. C. Andrews and Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben.  I am halfway through Game of Thrones and I started reading Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein.  I don’t usually read more than one book at a time, but it just happened that I would have my Kindle with me or the wrong book in my bag so I ended up reading four books at once.  I don’t know if this making me more productive or less though.

If There Be Thorns (Dollanganger, #3)Deal Breaker / Drop Shot (Myron Bolitar, #1-2)Rose Under FireA Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

From the Library:

I reserved Deal Breaker/Drop Shot by Harlan Coben at my library months ago and it finally came.  Of course when I went to pick it up though I browsed through the shelves and ended up getting a couple more books.  🙂  I got Daddy’s Girl by Lisa Scottoline and One Good Turn by Kate Atkinson.  I didn’t realize One Good Turn was part of a series until I got home and added it to my To Reads on Goodreads so now I’ll have to get the first one also.

Daddy's GirlOne Good Turn (Jackson Brodie Series #2)

NetGalley:

Only requested a couple this time and they are not due for release for awhile.

  • The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
  • In The Blood by Lisa Unger
  • Far From You by Tess Sharpe
