I just want to spout about the weird ness that is beginning with today literature.

Currently I am reading "Shakespeare Undead" by Lori Handeland. I'm really impressed with the authors writing style until you realize that you are reading (Twilight + Shakespeare+ Soft Core Porn) I am serious! It was unbelievably graphic with its writing style. I am liking the story line minus the fact it resembles Twilight however I have a major issue with this book. I don't think anyone would figure this out besides myself because I know what is popular with teen/ younger kid reading in todays society.

Today very popular are the Jane Austin parodies with the zombies. I myself have read those books and enjoyed them whole heartedly. I fear the kids these days are going to see this title and think it is along the lines of those other novels. When in retrospect they are more crude and dirty. I caution you to save your children from reading this until you think they are ready for a zombie Shakespeare romance novel. I am enjoying this book don't get me wrong. It is a great read I just don't want say someone like my twelve year old sister to read something like this. Even some kids in middle school, but that is just me.

thats it.
