She is too fond of books...

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a bookish girl in possession of a large library, must be in want of a blog.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Seth Grahame-Smith Cute, clever idea, and fun novelty for the first few chapters, yet in my opinion the zombie bits could have been better. The novelty wore off pretty quick and then it became a bit of a "reader's digest condensed" version of the P&P story with little character development, and not near enough actual zombie mayhem!Still, this is a quick and entertaining read for folks who don't take themselves, or their Jane Austen, too seriously...let's not forget that Ms. Austen herself had some badazz comedic skillz and appreciation of the bizarre. Also, the illustrations alone are worth the purchase! The very thought of Lizzy kicking some serious zombie butt on her walk to Netherfield had me giggling out loud, and the illustration of that scene was priceless.
