A weekly features celebrating unread books on our shelves! Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up.
My Shelf Control picks will be books that I already own — either physical copies from my overflowing shelves, or one of the many unread titles elbowing each other out of the way on my Kindle.
So, although Bookshelf Fantasies is only counting actual books I’m also going to add in any books that I’ve received from authors and Netgalley that need to be read… so, here goes!
Ok, I have no excuses. I still have to read Rot & Ruin! There are so many in the series and I feel like I’ve been behind forever. I can see the book since it is on a shelf that is right in my face basically. I have no excuse except that really there is just no time in the day.
The reason I want to read this… other than that fabulous cover, is because the synopsis is fabulous. I have heard such great things also! And ZoMBIES! I mean, really, I do not have to have any other reasons but zombies being one would make people think that I’m going to read it tomorrow. It’s been on the shelf collecting dust for way too long.

In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn’t want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.
