Also, each week, Leslie, Vicki, and I will share the Books that Caught Our Eye from everyone’s weekly links.

Here’s what I received:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Movie-Tie-In edition) by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith.

In the five years since its publication, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has become a true cultural phenomenon, amassing a legion of fans and spawning an entire “mash-up” genre. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton . . . and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. This movie tie-in edition features eight pages of color movie stills and a new introduction by coauthor Seth Grahame-Smith.

What did you receive?

  • Anna (Diary of an Eccentric)

    I read it when it first came out. Can’t wait for the movie. We’re going on a date, right? 😉

  • Laurel-Rain Snow

    Enjoy your reading, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  • Mystica

    Zombies not for me!

  • I think this is the only zombie book I ever read, but I won’t see the movie.

  • Zombies were never my thing. This is a great cover though.

  • Looks like you have a nice edition of this novel. It sounds interesting! Enjoy! happy Holidays!

    I have often wondered about this book. It seems like a spoof but now a movie too? Hope you enjoy it. Have a lovely holiday week.
