Blackout 
By Mira Grant
Series: Newsflash Trilogy #3
Publication Date: June 1, 2012



Rise up while you can. -Georgia Mason
The year was 2014. The year we cured cancer. The year we cured the common cold. And the year the dead started to walk. The year of the Rising.
The year was 2039. The world didn't end when the zombies came, it just got worse. Georgia and Shaun Mason set out on the biggest story of their generation. The uncovered the biggest conspiracy since the Rising and realized that to tell the truth, sacrifices have to be made.
Now, the year is 2041, and the investigation that began with the election of President Ryman is much bigger than anyone had assumed. With too much left to do and not much time left to do it in, the surviving staff of After the End Times must face mad scientists, zombie bears, rogue government agencies-and if there's one thing they know is true in post-zombie America, it's this:
Things can always get worse.
Blackout is the conclusion to the epic trilogy that began in the Hugo-nominated Feed and the sequel, Deadline.(synopsis from Goodreads)
 What are you waiting on?

Hmm, another series that I know I ought to have read by now that Cait will probably smack me upside the head for. I've heard since the first book came out how awesome it is but I kept putting it off. The good news (!) is that this is the last book so I can get all three and go on a binge and read them all after I read all the other books she's nagging me to read. :)

I still haven't read Feed, either. I didn't dare reading the blurb because I didn't want to be spoiled, so I can only say that I really like the cover! :D
