This is my first 'What Are You Reading?' post and I'm really excited because this seems like an awesome meme to be a part of. It's hosted by Book Journey. This week I'm reading....

Secrets. Everyone has them. But what if your secret is something so unthinkable that you can’t even admit it to yourself? Lily Herne returns with Death of a Saint , the next instalment in the Mall Rats series. Exiled from the city enclave for crimes against the Resurrectionist State, teen rebels Lele, Ginger, Ash and Saint — aka the Mall Rats — are hiding out in the Deadlands, a once-prosperous area now swarming with the living dead. With the sinister Guardians breathing down their necks, the Mall Rats face a stark choice: return to the enclave and try to evade capture or leave Cape Town in search of other survivors. But what if the rest of South Africa is nothing but a zombie-infested wasteland? Will they be able to survive on the road if all they have is each other, or will their secrets tear them apart? After all, only Lele knows the shocking truth as to why the dead leave the Mall Rats unscathed — knowledge that she can’t bring herself to share. And she’s not the only Mall Rat harbouring a dangerous secret….|Goodreads|
It's a Zombie book set in my local city, Cape Town South Africa. It's the second book in a series, the first is Deadlands. I loved the first one and I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves Zombie fiction. Here is some info on the first book, Deadlands:

PhotobucketDeadlands (Mall Rats #1)
by Lily Herne
Publication Date: February 2011
Publisher: Penguin
Buy the Book: |Exclusive Books|
Ten years after Cape Town was destroyed in the War with the living dead, zombies roam free in Cape Town's suburbs (known as the Deadlands), and the remaining living are either fenced in on farms or in urban shanty towns. The living are watched over by the mysteriously robed Guardians, a race of humanoid figures who appeared at the end of the War and who keep the living dead at bay, albeit at a steep price. Every year the Guardians stage a human Lottery and select five aspiring teenagers to be whisked out of the enclave for a secret purpose. To be one of the chosen five is a highly sought after and prestigious accolade. No one knows why the Guardians prize teenage bodies so highly, how they control the zombies or what they look like under the robes that cover their bodies...|Goodreads|

And that's what I plan on reading this week. Thanks for stopping by!
