Move over Jane Austen, here come the Brontes

After the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, someone just couldn't resist. And they're actually titling it Wuthering Bites.

Considering I hated Wuthering Heights, I think this sounds like an excellent read. :D

I think it might be fun, but we'll see.

Hey Jeanne,

I ran across your blog and saw that someone is writing a book called Wuthering Bites. Wow!

I also saw that you mentioned "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters." I hope you got to read both and enjoyed them. I work for the publisher of those books, not "Wuthering Bites," and I was wondering if you wanted to receive info and updates about the Quirk Classics series. If you do, just send us an email at QuirkClassics@gmail.com. If not, that’s okay too. We won’t bug you again.

FYI: At the end of the month, we’ll be announcing the next title in the series.

Thanks for talking about our books, and happy reading!

Amanda, my daughter was "disappointed" in Wuthering Heights. She read it at the ripe old age of 15 and said "I thought it would be better, the way everyone talks about it." I am so much her opposite (and yours). I have always loved it.

Care, yes, sigh. That about sums it up!

Anna, It's going to take some convincing for me--that it could be fun--but I'll reserve judgment.

Hey thanks for the link to the Bronte blog. I hadn't come across that one before but I definitely need it (although I too get Publisher's Lunch so had already seen the news about Wuthering Bites). Incidentally, my sister always called it Withering Heights to remind us all how she felt about reading it in high school. She was unimpressed with my impassioned defense and still scoffs loudy if you so much as mumble "Bronte" in her general direction.

Kristen, I imagine she accompanies her sneering pronunciation of the title with a withering look.

I don't know how I missed this entry, Ms. Jeanne, especially since I loved Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. But then again I also loved World War Z. I didn't realize Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters was available ::runs off to add that to her wish list::
