Hello and Happy Friday!!

Today the closest book to me is actually the one I am currently reading.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

"His plan did not vary on seeing them."

A VERY BORING Friday 56 for such a fun book!!!

One of my favorite parts has been: (with the best line at the end):

"But why Mr. Darcy came so often to the parsonage, it was more difficult to understand. It could not be for society, as he frequently sat there ten minutes together without opening his lips; and when he did speak, it seemed the effect of necessity rather than of choice. He seldom appeared really animated, even at the sight of Mrs. Collins gnawing upon her own hand. What remained of Charlotte would liked to have believed this change the effect of love, and the object of that love her friend Eliza."

(and then there are a few more paragraphs... and then my favorite...):

"In her kind schemes for Elizabeth, she sometimes planned her marrying Colonel Fitzwilliam. He was beyond comparison the most pleasant man; he certainly admired her, and his situation in life was most eligible; but, to counterbalance these advantages, Mr. Darcy had a considerably larger head, and thus, more brains to feast upon."

HAHAHA!!!!! I am loving this book.
And I believe it's being made into a movie.
Here are some of the illustrations in the book. Too funny!

I am planning on reading Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters next!!!

Have a good weekend!!!
Thanks for reading!
