Teaser Tuesday, 1 September: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

teaser-tuesdayIt’s that time of week again for Should Be Reading’s fun meme Teaser Tuesdays.

So how does this work:

  • Grab your current book
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
  • Today is September 1st, and the “official” start of the R.I.P. IV Challenge (which stands for Readers Imbibing Peril) hosted by Stainless Steel Droppings. So, I started my first book for the challenge, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith (which will also be going towards Everything Austen hosted by Stephanie’s Written Word) and will be teasing you with it today.

    PPZ“‘He is just what a young man ought to be,’ she [Jane] said, ‘sensible, good-humoured, lively; and I never saw such happy manners! So much ease, with such perfect breeding!’
    ‘Yes,’ replied Elizabeth, ‘but in the heat of battle, neither he nor Mr. Darcy were to be found with blade or bludgeon.
    ‘” (Pg. 16)

    QUESTION OF THE DAY:
    What is your tease today?

  10. I am eagerly awaiting to read this book this month! My teaser book centers around a custom shoemaker and her new Italain romance — one of my favorite authors — Adriana Trigiani: http://zqueenbees.blogspot.com/2009/09/teaser-tuesdays.html ~~

  11. What a fun book! I’ve never picked up a P&P spin-off book let alone a zombie one but this one seems to have fun writing just like the original P&P. I’ll have to see if I can find this one at the bookstore.
