April’s Mini-Reviews

Wooooo! April. What a month you were. I turned 34 and the celebration was better than last year’s thankfully, work party where everyone was vaccinated. The reason behind the party was actually a vaccination relief party to let some steam off from the stress surrounding distributing the Covid-19 vaccines. It just happened to be on my birthday and I made the most of it. πŸ™‚

4 out of 5 stars –

Let me preface this mini-review with the disclaimer that I have never read the original story. I’ve always meant to but I just haven’t. Therefore, nothing done here could offend my delicate senses when it came to comparing the two.

There was a profound sense of amusement created by the idea of maintaining decorum whilst battling unmentionables, as they’re called here. The struggle to lure a future husband based not only on your manners but your skill with decapitating zombies, was a balancing act that inspired humor.

Something about all of the above brought upon me, a constant state of enjoyment, although it never succeeded in becoming a favorite.

3 out of 5 stars – I’m not really going to go into this one because….REASONS… to be revealed later. But, YA and I do not always get along. This landed in the ‘meh’ category.

I’ve been on a bit of a YA kick as of late, but it never lasts long.

How was your April??

    1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ Sorry to hear that April has been a bust for you! I hope May is the perfect transition to the June you seek.
      I realize that I sound like a hippy there but I’m going with it. πŸ˜›

      1. I have a strict “don’t shoot anyone I follow even if they ARE a hippy” rule πŸ˜‰

        Thanks. Today is warm and sunny and easy, so that’s a good way to prepare for May!

      1. The opening scene of Pride and Prejudice, if I remember correctly, spends about 8 pages describing Elizabeth crossing a muddy field to get to her sick sister, who is laid up and a neighbors house. And she got mud on her boots! And she forgot her bonnet, which means she might (gasp) have DARKER SKIN! *runs away waving arms in the style of Kermit the Frog*

  1. Happy belated birthday! Glad to hear about the vaccination and the party you made the most of though. I haven’t read any of those you mention here but I did hear a lot about them. Will you be checking out the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie adaptation? πŸ˜€

  2. I really enjoy reading your book reviews. I think that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies benefits a lot from having read the original as the bulk of the non-zombie text is verbatim; the joke is in the different context of course.

    1. I’m glad that you enjoyed them and that makes sense. When I started, I wondered if I would be able to enjoy it not being in on the jokes. I still found myself having fun though.
