Welcome to Book Chick City’s Zombie Challenge 2012! I love zombie’s and I don’t get tired of reading about them, so I thought I would create a reading challenge dedicated to these decaying, shuffling, flesh-munchers. I hope you will join me in my quest to read every zombie book I can lay my hands on!


To sign up you MUST make a post on your blog about participating in the challenge – you then use the DIRECT URL of the post to sign up to the challenge by adding it to Mr Linky below. DO NOT just add your blog URL – this will be deleted.


Please link the button back to this site so others can sign up :)


  • Timeline: 01 Jan 2012 – 31 Dec 2012
  • Rules: There are FOUR (4) LEVELS to choose from:
  1. One Chomp: Read 6 Zombie books in 2012
  2. Two Chomps: Read 12 Zombie books in 2012
  3. Three Chomps: Read 18 Zombie books in 2012
  4. Four Chomps: Read 24 Zombie books in 2012
  • You don’t have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront you can change them, nothing is set in stone! The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.
  • You can join at anytime. All books read in 2012 count towards the challenge regardless of when you sign up.
  • At the beginning of Jan 2012, you will find a link to specific month to add your reviews.
  • Audiobooks do not count, but all other formats are accepted.
  • Only fiction, no non-fiction ;)
  • This challenge can crossover to other challenges.
  • You DO NOT have to write reviews of the books you read, but if you decide to then Mr Linky will be available each month so you can link up your reviews.
  • You don’t have to have a blog to join in – for those without a blog but who use Goodreads, Amazon, LibraryThing etc, you can add the URL to where you track your books. If you don’t have a URL at all then choose a name you would like to use and then copy and paste the following link:


UPDATE: Due to the migration of Book Chick City from Blogger to WordPress, all previous links were unfortunately lost during the process. Therefore, please feel free to sign up again :)

Awesome challenge. Will be blogging about this one on the 1st!


Ellie Garratt February 29, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Oops. Just read part about linking to blog post rather than blog! Will do it again tomorrow. Sorry.


Charmaine Clancy March 1, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Awesome idea! I'm definitely going to sign up!
I've just release my new Kindle book My Zombie Dog and have a competition on my blog where readers and bloggers can win a Kindle. If you like YA zombie fiction I definitely recommend Phelan's Alone series, the first book is called CHASERS and there is an amazing twist at the end.


B.M. Hodges March 12, 2012 at 7:44 am

Love this challenge. Four chomps, here I come!


Jolie du Pre April 11, 2012 at 1:54 am

Two chomps sounds about right for me. Thanks for the challenge! (Currently reading a zombie novella right now.)


Ginger Woods April 11, 2012 at 2:30 am

A meeger one chomp but I'm in it to win it! :)


Ali April 25, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Two chomps is what I am going for~ love this idea!!

I think I’m blind because for the life of me I cant see Mr Linky so I can sign up. :/ I’ve blogged about the challenge and I’m definitely up for it! :D



Carolyn May 15, 2012 at 9:22 pm

No, you’re not blind, I’ve been having troubles with the linky thing, but should have it back up and running tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Ladyzombiejournals July 14, 2012 at 12:58 am

Question and I feel silly because I just know the answer is right in front of me ! How do post the books that we read for the challenge? On our blog ? And share the link ? If so where do we post the link? This is so exciting!!!!


Amber @ The Musings of ALMYBNENR July 25, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Omg Carolyn! When I tweeted you that the button wasn’t showing up, I had no idea that you had changed the button? I don’t even think I knew you moved your blog so I guess that’s why I don’t remember any updates about this. It’s weird that all the old comments stayed but the links didn’t. Why did you change the button too?


Carolyn July 25, 2012 at 7:51 pm

I hadn’t when you tweeted me, I’d just removed them – decided to redo, but then couldn’t remember how to do the code, doh! I moved the blog a couple of months ago now. I did post about it, and tweet/facebook :)

Are you following my blog via Google Friend Connect? If you are it’s probably best to unfollow from that and sign up for email or RSS, to keep up to date with stuff.

Honey Dew August 16, 2012 at 11:50 am

1 chomp
Will be fun


Mel@thedailyprophecy September 2, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Why not :D I’m going for one chomp!


[…] You may want to know I was into zombies last year, what with The Walking Dead, my George Romero movie nights (alone!), and many reading materials about our not-so friendly shambling friends.  I decided that I want them to stay so I joined Book Chick City’s Zombie Challenge for 2012. […]
