Best Boy Books: Diary of a Minecraft Zombie

MINECRAFT. If you have a son under the age of 13 you know exactly what I am talking about. If you don’t, you may need to check it out. Minecraft is a VERY popular game with boys. It allows players to design and construct their own 3D box world which they can then explore, craft, gather, and eventually use combat methods in with other players, zombies, etc. It is so popular that it has spawned an entire merchandise line, television show, and even books.

This month we want to highlight a series of books that any Minecraft lover will want. Diary of a Minecraft Zombie. This series follows a middle school Minecraft Zombie through his daily life. It is rife with funny video game references, and will keep your little player in stitches. It gives a fun diary style insight in to the world of a 12 year old Minecraft zombie. Readers/players will be surprised how similar their life and the zombies lives actually are. It is a fun and fairly straightforward read for readers 7-12. The series features nearly 17 books and they are available in paperback, hardback, and kindle edition.

These fun a quirky books may just encourage readers that would rather play video games than read to look at a book and see what it has to offer. By adapting their favorite game and giving human emotions to the familiar characters it encourages players to take a deeper look at their game, and themselves, all while keeping the pleasantly entertained.
