The Joys of Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is one of my all time favorite books.  I’m in good company, if the multitude of Pride and Prejudice movies and book spin offs are any indication.

I recently read Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith.  It’s the sequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith.  Both are funny books, and worth reading at least once.  If you’re a Pride and Prejudice fan, I do recommend them.

In my opinion, the best spin off I’ve read was Mr. Darcy’s Diary by Amanda Grange.  I loved it because it’s Pride and Prejudice, but told from Mr. Darcy’s point of view.  It details his struggle with his feelings.  This novel doesn’t tell the entire story; it focuses on the romance between Darcy and Lizzy.

If you like funny horror or like zombies, read the zombies books.  If you’re just a fan of romance and love all things Pride and Prejudice, go for Mr. Darcy’s Diary.  If you’re like me, read all three, depending on your mood.
