A little break

The kitchen is soothing tonight with just the little table lamp lighting the room, sitting next to the sliding door that is wide open to let the cool breeze of the rain storm come in. It’s time to take a break from packing, lesson planning, job hunting, and worrying. It is time to read with some tea.
After settling in with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, I remembered that I have been meaning to write about my new little reading and review project for the next year. Allow me to share it!
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
I became aware of the various cryptozoological adaptations of classic novels last summer but hadn’t read a single one until a month ago. It was Little Women and Werewolves. It was well done. And now I’m reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies with Jane Slayre up on deck. I was inspired to reread each of the classics along with the adaptation and write a side-by-side review of the classic and the adaptation. I will begin that as soon as I am done reading PPZ. First of the reviews will be Little Women and Little Women and Werewolves, followed by Pride and Prejudice and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Others that I know of are: Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Mansfield Park and Mummies, Android Karenina, Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter, Little Vampire Women, and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim.
Do you know of any more?
