Don't Look Behind the Bookshelf: Day 5

Dont Look Behind 
the Bookshelf
Welcome to Day 5 of Don't Look Behind the Bookshelf, you lucky survivors. (You can see yesterday's post here.)  So far you've managed to survive four days behind the bookshelf, and now you're stumbling into the fifth. But this time...well, it's a little morbid. You'll see why soon, but first I'd suggest you protect your brains from...


Em is the author of Contaminated, a book about (in my opinion) the scariest Halloween creatures: zombies. But of course, it's not your average zombie story, which makes it all the more interesting. So please grab a brain, and maybe some intestines, and take a seat (or just stand there and moan) as Em shares what she thinks may be the...

Top Ten Tastiest Brains

1. Einstein - that's a "no brainer." Uniquely flavored, with a delicate aftershock of lingering genius.

2. Shakespeare -- nutty, with hints of mutton and ale

3. Stephen King -- meaty and rich, heavy with earthy overtones

4. Keanu Reeves -- far more complex than anyone would imagine, with a sweet flavor of generosity and humor

5. Queen Elizabeth I -- she had the heart of a lion, but the brain of chocolate cake and red wine

6. Bill Gates -- hints of ozone and keyboard dust, undertones of crisp, green dollar bills

7. Angelina Jolie -- bittersweet overtones of tattoo ink softened with the ambrosia of charitable giving

8. Misha Collins -- biting wit infused with humor and cleverness, hints of raucous laughter

9. Jacqueline Carey -- over notes of cinnamon and rich, red wine with lingering aftershock of freshwater pearl 

10. Kate Winslet -- a quirky blend of talent and beauty, flavored with longevity and the barest hint of Leonardo DiCaprio

After the Contamination—an epidemic caused by the super-trendy diet drink ThinPro that turned ordinary citizens into violent, uncontrollable creatures—the government rounded up the "Connies" to protect the remaining population. Now, two years later, the rehabilitated are being allowed home, complete with shock collars that will either control, or kill, them.

Velvet Ellis has struggled to care for her ten-year-old sister since her parents were taken in the round up. When she finds her mother in one of the "Kennels," Velvet resolves to do whatever it takes to put her family back together. But the danger isn’t over. It’s beginning all over again…

Gritty and grabbing, Velvet is a harrowing, emotionally charged novel for fans of Carrie Ryan and The Walking Dead.

People are getting contaminated
Alarmingly realistic and absolutely unputdownableCONTAMINATED will leave you reeling. — Jennifer L. Armentrout,  USA Today best-selling author
Confession: This book had me crying in public. It's riveting, relentless—and best of all, real. CONTAMINATED  is the most human, heartbreaking dystopian I've ever read. — Jeri Smith-Readyaward-winning author of the Shade trilogy
“Relentlessly horrifying... a bone-chilling, riveting debut.  Ann Aguirre, USA Today best-selling author
The One with the Brains
Em Garner writes books.

She likes rainbows and unicorns and glitter and zombies, and she hates the feeling of corduroy, the grit of sand in her teeth (who doesn’t?) and the way banana candy tastes.

She lives by the ocean with her family, and she always goes in the water even though she’s afraid of sharks.

Are You Hungry for More?
Thank you for checking out today's post with Em Garner! Don't forget to follow her on the web and check out her books! You never know, it may give you some braaaiiins...

If you're willing to put up with even more of Don't Look Behind the Bookshelf (and willing to risk contamination) then that is excellent! You'll want to come back tomorrow for another author with another bloody post. But be careful...this author's characters are inviting you over for dinner, and you're the main course.

  1. Haha! I found myself smiling to myself and laughing out loud at these, especially the Kate Winslet one at the end! Where did you get the idea for this?!
