I hear very good things about Feed, a zombie novel by Mira Grant - whom you may have encountered in her other guise as the very talented fantasy author Seanan McGuire. This one could be the surprise hit of the summer! (And a special nod too to Orbit's Lauren Panepinto for what I think is arresting and very clever cover design.)
"The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives - the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will get out, even if it kills them. "
