“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” by Seth Grahame-Smith

The first time I heard about this book I thought it was ridiculous. Then I heard that it got great reviews and decided to give it a try. Wow. This book is so crazy but also hilarious. It’s so over-the-top but in the best way possible. Having read the original story, it’s interesting to read… Continue reading “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” by Seth Grahame-Smith

“Yes Please” — Amy Poehler

I just recently finished Amy Poehler’s book, and I was already laughing hysterically at page two. Her writing is clever and sincere, and everything she wrote was true to her comedic style. The book is part advice column, part memoir, part essay, and part scrapbook; all of these elements come together to create an amazing book.… Continue reading “Yes Please” — Amy Poehler
