Up first, a perfect read for the Halloween season: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. This is an expanded edition of the beloved classic Jane Austen novel. The spunky Elizabeth is a martial arts master and Mr. Darcy is as arrogant as ever, but the zombie battles add a campy twist to the theme of marriage in this 18th century satire. Oct. 20th, 2019
