Notice for Review Requests

I receive review requests weekly. However, my personal schedule is hectic and I no longer review actively. (I also manage another blog called The Toronto Cafe and Food Blog). I do read every request sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take sometime before I can review it.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. When I have the time, a review may be posted.

Trailer Tuesday: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith

Title: Dawn of the Dreadfuls
Author: Steve Hockensmith
Description: In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early-nineteenth-century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naïve young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry. Written by acclaimed novelist (and Edgar Award nominee) Steve Hockensmith, Dawn of the Dreadfuls invites Austen fans to step back into Regency England, Land of the Undead!

Haha, this is such a sweet trailer! I still have to read Pride and Predjudice and Zombies though. The only complaint I have about this trailer is the bad attempt to look kung-fu when, Elizabeth I believe?, tried to do some sort of high kick. Now if they hired real martial artists, that would've been so pro!
