By now, you’re probably already obsessed with the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. (All. The. Feelings!) But we’re winding down in the P&P plotline–Lizzie and Darcy have come to feel more about each other; Jane and Bing have reconciled; and Lydia has overcome the potential scandal of the heinous Wickham. I was really sad to imagine an end in the near future.
Fortunately, it looks like we’ve got another modern literary web series to latch onto–starring a few favorites from LBD! Although A Game of Thrones might be set in a medieval-ish fantasy world, looks like things translate pretty well to a contemporary high school setting in School of Thrones. I especially like the retro-hipster Starks.
And it’s only just started! Check out the first episode here:
Is it weird that this might actually inspire me to read beyond the first book?

I was curious to hear about the editing to stories like Rapunzel. We tend to think Disney tones down classic fairy tales for family audiences, but apparently the Grimms felt that some versions were a bit too scandalous as well.

A few more spooky links for Halloween:
- Libraries are awesome–why shouldn’t ghosts like them too? Check out this list of haunted libraries.
- Speaking of haunted libraries, Walt and I should check these libraries out the next time we’re in Pittsburgh.
- Gorgeous and creepy Japanese monsters from the Kaibutsu Ehon.
- When I was a kid, Are You Afraid of the Dark was the scariest show ever. They even made books creepy!
- Because Buffy’s the best, a look at Buffy and the reversal of Halloween.
- And if you need to get in the Halloween spirit (pun intended), head over to my Tumblr for a bunch of spooky songs.
