Has anyone read any of these?

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Apparently these books are gaining in popularity. Pride and Prejudice was a classic and Zombies are more popular than ever, so I suppose it makes sense.

I recently read that Natalie Portman has signed on to star in an upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie.

I haven't read any of these books (Which include Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters)...yet. But, I will be reading the next one that comes out.

I discovered that Steve Hockensmith, who writes the Holmes on the Range Series, which includes The Black Dove, is writing the next offering in the series, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls. Not only that, but Quirk Books is tossing out some free books to bloggers that will write a great review of the book on March 3rd. So, I emailed them and I now have, on this very desk, a copy of the not yet released Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls.

I must admit, at first I thought Mr. Hockensmith was joking when he announced he wrote the next installment. Turns out he wasn't.

My daughter says I have to read Pride and Prejudice first, but I don't think I need to. Jane Austen never sent me a free book and a poster (which I am not allowed to hang in our room), Quirk Books did.

So, tune in here on March 3rd and you'll not only see the review, but get a chance to win some prizes of your own from Quirk Classics.

And, if you are a blogger, it may not be too late to get your own copy for review. Hurry up and go here.
