It has been quite some time since I’ve done a book review. Mostly because I just haven’t had as much time to really sit down and read lately. That has actually changed recently though because I’ve found that I can sneak in about an hour of reading each night while I’m putting my youngest to bed. You see, co-sleeping really has it’s advantages! My daughter will typically fall asleep in about 5-10 minutes, meanwhile my hubby thinks I’m in there waiting for her to nod off when I’m really reading my heart out. Shhhhh, our little secret.  :)

So one of the most recent book that I’ve had the privilege of reading is The Seventh Day, by AE WATSON (or Tara Brown if you are a fan and know her by her real name).


Author: Tara Brown writing as AE Watson
Genres: YA Science Fiction | Post Apoc | Horror (zombie horror not ghosts) | Romance

Series: The Seventh Day, Book 1


From the window I can see her.

She looks like she did yesterday.

Same Clothes.

Same Hair.

But today her face is calm, dead calm.

All their faces are dead calm until one of us makes a noise.

The noise wakes them and then it starts.

Their heads jerk to the right three times rapidly as they stand in the most awkward way.

That’s when we run.

That’s when we hide.

That’s how we stay alive until The Seventh Day!

Silence is survival!


This story is about a young girl who starts the day off normally but ends it with her mother in the closet boarded up, the rest of the house boarded up, hiding and waiting for her dad to come. The world outside is rapidly consumed by a sickness, a plague if you will. Her name is Lou and she is instantly responsible for 3 little girls, a dog, and her own survival. She sets off, leaving the house when the infection gets inside and how she spends the next seven days will blow your mind.


I’ll admit, when I first started reading this book I didn’t have a clue what it was going to be about. I didn’t read the synopsis, but knowing what a great author Tara Brown is I figured it had to be a good read. I’ll also admit that finding out this was a book about zombies after the first few pages sort of disheartened me a bit. I am almost over the whole zombie thing. Almost.

Once I really started getting into the book I realized this story was so much more that just running from zombies, and it has twists and turns that are quite unexpected – especially toward the end. I found that I really loved where Tara took the story, how she developed the characters, and that she sort of renewed my love of the whole zombie idea. I truly cannot wait to find out what is next for Lou and her friends!

I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird. I am a Canadian author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing. I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy! I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order. I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis. Kidding, it’s called The End of Me and it’s badass and awesome. It’s a start to a massive series. I am jazzed about it. I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time. Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride.
