Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

I am quite excited to tell you that I have finished the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith today, January 11th (I started it on the 8th).  This is my book club book of the month, so I won’t give too much away now, lest we discuss it later but I had to share a few of my feelings while they are fresh.

I absolutely love this book, and while there are some parts that irritated me, I find that this one very closely rivals the original Pride and Prejudice in my heart.

This is an absolutely amazing book, and since the movie is coming out next month, you’d definitely do well to read it now!

January’s Book of the Month (Book Club)

As stated in my end of the year tidings post, I’ve decided to start doing a book a month in the new year that I will share with you on the first, and around the end of the month we will discuss!  Since this is the first of January 2016 let’s begin!

The book of the month for January is

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

It’s no secret that I love Pride and Prejudice, and this novel is a retelling of a classic.  This novel is written by Seth Grahame-Smith, who also wrote Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, has been made into a movie, which I am quite looking forward to seeing.  It comes out on February 5th, and you can learn more about the movie here.  As always I would prefer to read the book first before seeing the movie or television show, though that doesn’t always end up being the case (see Austenland) I definitely intend to with this book.

P.S. The Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter movie is phenomenal.  Watch it!

End of the year tidings

My grand total of the year appears to be 55 novels read.  I feel as if this number should have been much higher, but in the end, so long as one is reading, that’s most important!

I have done all of the reviews for books I either missed in a massive update overhaul from the summer, and the three I’ve read this month, which means I can start the new year fresh!

Let me know if you’d like me to post about what book I’m reading before I start it, or a tentative list of books I might read.  Starting in January I’m going to start a bit of a book club, where I’ll state on the 1st the book I’ll be reading for the month, and at the end of the month we can discuss! 🙂
