I love when books become movies. Love love love them! Sometimes they suck. Sometimes they blow my mind. But, everytime I get to fangirl all over them before they come out.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith

Coming to Theaters: Feb 5th

The Quickie: Set in the world of Jane Austen, this parody combines dark humor with my favorite book! In this version of P&P Elizabeth Bennett played by Lily James, (Cinderella) and her sisters are a zombie fighting team, intent on killing the dead, while their mother is intent on hooking them up with a good husband.

The Magicians by Lev Grossman

Coming to SyFY: Jan 25th

The Quickie: Another one that I believe will be based loosely on the book, this is about students recruited to learn magic. The book was pretty good, I enjoy SyFy series, but they do tend to get cheesy.
