These last two weeks, I’ve lacked inspiration and I’ve had little time to do much besides getting the new Starrynight website ready to go live. I still have a lot of content to move but I don’t anticipate the style and navigation to change drastically. Unless of course, some tells me that hate so-and-so and […]
Tag: Jane Austen
It is entirely coincidental that this long-overdue blog post is appearing on the first of April. “Jen! Are YOU doing BEDA?” No, gentle reader, I’m not quite crazy enough to declare myself a BEDA participant on a whim. Working fourteen-hour days and then having to blog at 11pm just might break me. Fortunately, fearless leader […]
Review: Dawn of the Dreadfuls
Back in November, I reviewed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahme-Smith. I am happy to be able to give a spoiler-free glimpse of the prequel, which will be released on March 23rd. Special note: Quirk Books is giving away 50 Quirks Classics Prize Packs, which include advanced copies, audio books […]
Upcoming ‘Dreadful’ Reading
In which I brag obnoxiously about the arrival of an ARC of the PP&Z prequel, due out March 23rd. Review forthcoming!
So We Came to February
I closed out January with five stitches in my thumb (first time getting stitches– first visit to the emergency room). Surely, I can do better in February. Reading Sharp object encounters aside, January was a pretty good month. I managed to read quite a bit more1. Listening to the audiobook versions of S&S and MP […]
Zombies Ate Darcy. The End.
I have it. It is in my hands. For good reason, gentle reader, I will not be posting at length today. There are useful skills to be learned from the zombie-repelling Bennett girls. I must study. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in posession of brains must be in want of more […]
Quit Gnawing on My Hand, Darcy
Remember my post awhile back about writing zombies into classic works of literature? There’s more information on the publisher’s website. “Complete with 20 illustrations in the style of C. E. Brock (the original illustrator of Pride and Prejudice).” There isn’t a preview available in Google Books at time of posting but, good or bad (worse […]
I chose to work this MLK Jr Day. I am one of two people present in my unit and maybe one of ten present in the entire cataloging division. I’m rather enjoying the quiet though. I am desperately trying to get through Sense and Sensibility before I watch the movie (1995 with Kate Winslet, Emma […]
In the last few days, I have seen Pride & Prejudice (2005 with Keira Knightley), Birth, Cloverfield and The Unborn. I haven’t had time to comment on any of them at length thus far, so here are some rather unorganized thoughts on each. Pride & Prejudice I loved that the Bennets looked poorer than the […]
I’m past the whiny phase of being sick, so it’s probably safe to post again. The flu completely kicked my arse this week. I woke up Saturday feeling fine and by Sunday morning I couldn’t move or eat without being sick. The sinus pressure in my face was so bad that my teeth were throbbing. […]
