My new cult faves have arrived – WooHoo!

I’m now the proud owner of two new cult faves – which to read first?

The Booker longlisted Me Cheeta, the ‘autobiography’ of the Hollywood star chimp. Our book group has chosen this for our October book, but I can’t wait that long to read it.

Or should I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an inventive adaptation of the Jane Austen classic by Seth Grahame-Smith which opens thus – “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

I will have to alternate them between other books, but which first? Aargh!

By the way, are there any other new cult books in the making that I should be reading too?

    I'd like you to read the P&P Zombies first – I can't say that I fancy it myself, but I'm interested to see what you think about it.

    "Me Cheeta" looks so interesting! I had never heard of it before, but it's definitely a different kind of, er, memoir?

    Kay, I think Cheeta is a must for anyone who enjoys all the old movies. Can't wait, but have said I'll read P&P&Z first.

    I would like to know what you think of P+P and Zombies. I read the first chapter online ( and I thought it was hilarious but whether it can maintain that across the whole novel will eb interesting to see!
