8 April: Essay deadline.
9 April: Izzy is a free elf.
Do you know what that means? I’LL HAVE TIME TO READ!
According to my Goodreads Book Challange I am 4 books ahead of schedule. We need to keep it that way, so we need to keep reading.
I have so many unread books, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
We only need to figure out which books I’d like to read first!
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Seth Grahame-Smith
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”
Is this book supposed to be a parody? Cuz I laughed when I read that line. I’m surprised that Austen didn’t come back from the dead to haunt Seth though. I have this feeling that she would have hated the book, but I might actually enjoy it.
I’ve become a zombie fan recently. I’ve been playing The Last of Us over and over and over again, and I’ve been also watching The Walking Dead (I’m at the end of season 5, so ssssst no spoilers!).
What a plottwist would it be if Darcy became a zombie! And Elizabeth had to kill him. Or they might both become zombies and Jane has to kill them! Stop writing fanfiction Izzy!
It’s save to say that I’m looking forward to reading this book.
Paper Towns – John Green
I’m giving John Green another shot. So far I’ve only read The Fault in our Stars, and I… didn’t like it. That’s me being nice.
I don’t know. It just didn’t grab my attention; I didn’t like his overly dramatic whiny girl voice, and I DIDN’T EVEN CRY! What is wrong with me!?
I want to read Paper Towns because I want to see the movie. Mostly I just want to see Cara Delevingne act. I know her only as a model, and I think she’s cool. So I’m hoping she’s also a great actress. I get to judge after I’ve read Paper Towns. (Or you could go see Suicide Squad, but then you have to wait till August. Read the book.)
Alice – Christina Henry
Whoot another creepy adaptation, but this one isn’t funny. I think.
I wrote about this book in my last book wishlist post. And I finally got it last week :D!
I guess it’s inspired by Alice in Wonderland, but it’s supposed to be a dark and gritty tale compared to Alice.
I have no idea what to expect. Like what is Alice going to do in this book? Murder the rabbit? I hope not.
On the cover it says that her hair was ‘once blond’, and that ‘she doesn’t remember why she’s in such a terrible place’ (Where is she?!). She needs to ‘uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years ago’ (What’s going on?!).
A friend of mine read it and she told me that it was a good book. And I trust her opinion. She also made me read Cinder, which I loved!
What have you been reading lately? Got any recommendations for me?
