While Mr. Bennet silently reads in the study, and Mrs. Bennet’s tales of woe can be heard from miles away, you spend a lovely afternoon in the garden with your dramatic and doting sisters. What is a favourite novel of yours that features a strong sibling relationship?
Jonah and his siblings’ relationship in this book are super cute and realistic.
You can read my review of the book here.
You and Mary have decided to walk to the bookshop in Meryton to search for the newest releases. Which book or books are you likely to purchase?
Anything on my TBR that I happen to see really.
Or pretty much any signed copy…
Netherfield Park has been let at last, and the owner, a Mr. Charles Bingley, hosts a magnificent ball at his new estate. What fictional ball gown would you wear?
I would 100% where Hermoine’s yule ball dress (to prom, I really would).
It is the Christmas Ball and Maria has asked you to join her at the piano. What music or song would you choose as an accompaniment to your current book?
My current book is Pride and Prejudice.
Marsh King’s Daughter by Eisley might go well though.
You’re helping Jane to take care of her younger cousins whilst staying with the Gardiners. Which fictional children would you include in your own family?
I’d have to adopt the Blackthorn children.
It’s a sombre evening at Hunsford Parsonage, and after dinner, Mr. Collins stands by the fireplace and quotes from the Good Book, while the party tries not to yawn too obviously. What is a memorable quote from a novel that has always stuck with you?
I would look to steal Icebreaker’s quote, because I love it, but I won’t.
Instead here are a few:
“I don’t want to be a man,” said Jace. “I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can’t confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead.”
“Well,” said Luke, “you’re doing a fantastic job.”
― Cassandra Clare,
“He could build a city. Has a certain capacity. There’s a niche in his chest
where a heart would fit perfectly
and he thinks if he could just maneuver one into place –
well then, game over.”
― Richard Siken
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
― Albert Einstein
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
― Douglas Adams,
…You’ve been invited to dine at Rosings Park by none other than the infamous Lady Catherine de Bourgh, but the evening ends in disaster as the pompous Lady insults you and your family. Who’s your favourite fictional villain?
This is a hard one, because I like villains.
Sticking with books though, I’ll say James Moriarty.
As Lydia has gone down to Brighton with the Forsters, and Elizabeth is off on her jaunt to Derbyshire with the Gardiners, you also want to go away for a quick break. Which fictional location would be your perfect holiday destination?
I’ll just leave that there.
You’re running to the fine horse chestnut tree on the green to relive some of your favourite childhood reading memories. What is one that you remember most fondly?
Being about eight and very stubbornly information the school librarian that I was going to read Harry Potter, my first grade reading level be damned (though with less cursing because I was, you know, eight).
You’re on a tour at Pemberley and you come across Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy emerging from the pond, scandalously clad in only his wet underdrawers and shirt. You can’t help but swoon at the sight. Aside from Mr. Darcy, who is your favourite romantic interest?
That list is too long to even contemplate writing and I’m incapable of picking favorites.
I’m not sure who has read/enjoyed the book and who hasn’t, so no worries if you don’t want to do this. If anyone else wants to though, feel free to participate, consider this your tag!
It was a fun tag though!
