Book Club Friday

Happy Fridayyyyyy! After a very exciting week (with the decision for MG and I to move in together) followed by some extra stress, I'm just SUPER glad that the weekend is almost near! And even more glad that there will be two solid days where I can relax....and also looking forward to taking care of this mane of hair on my head with a haircut!

Since I didn't have anything really earth-shattering to share today, I thought I would link up with Heather at Blonde....Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!

I LOVE to read and since I've gotten my Kindle I've been reading SO much more than I ever did before. And also buying more books (well, e-books) than before, too (wallet, ouch!), but I love reading and I'm glad that I have the time for it.

Right now I'm reading:
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

Synopsis: When Abraham Lincoln discovers that his mother's death is due to vampires, he begins a life-long mission to stop them.
He keeps a diary of his experiences (both life, and with vampires) along the way which is the centerpiece of the book.

From Amazon:"While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation."

So far, the book has been pretty good--I'm not ripping through it as fast as I had with other books, but it is still entertaining, and makes me wonder just how much of all of this is actually true!

I saw that they are making this into a movie. When I saw the preview I wasn't too impressed, but maybe after reading the book, I'll check it out!

And now, I'm off to make it through the last work day of the week so I can get to my weekend! Happy weekends, and happy reading!

  5. i liked this book. it gets a lil boring towards the end (for me it did) but i liked it a lot. the movie doesn't look bad.
    i might read this author's other book...where he added zombies to jane austin story. i can't remember what it's called. and i'm too lazy to look it up now.

    1. It's just called 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,' and it's really good.

      His newest book is about the Three Wise Men.

  6. I love books that change up the traditional stories! Vampires...not so much. Haha. So does the move-in mean that you will be rid of your roommate problem??

  7. Abraham Lincoln and vampires?! Wow. That's crazy!

  8. I liked 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.' Occasionally I forgot I was reading fiction and I thought I was reading history.
