30 Day Book Challenge: Day 14

Last year I found this book challenge (since then I have seen many variations of it, but I like this one best!), and have been intrigued about how I would answer the questions posed. Obviously, I started this challenge over 30 days ago...I just wasn't inspired. It isn't as easy to write about books as I thought.

Feel free to comment with your own answer or post the challenge to your own blog.

Favorite Character in a Book

Male it Fitzwilliam Darcy, “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”?


Mark Darcy, “I like you very much. Just as you are."?

Either way I win, right?

I am only slightly ashamed that I picked the male character for the 'swoon factor' and I'm picking the female character for her mind...

The March sisters are the first characters my sisters and I ever fell in love with and they are perfect. We'd sometimes pretend that we were the March sisters (minus Meg...we didn't really relate to Meg). I was Jo (and, frankly, in a lot of ways still am) and my two sisters were Beth and Amy, respectively. I have always identified with Jo, and in turn, Louisa May Alcott. I just love these ladies soooo much!

We watched this on video disc. We watched it a lot.
The story ends when Beth gets sick, so I spent most of the 80s not knowing the whole story, but I love this...we also watched the Japanese version of The Wizard of Oz. It had singing. What can I say?
Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy and Marmee...sigh...

  1. I love Mr. Darcy and Mark Darcy (although I must confesss, I haven't read Bridget Jones' Diary). It doesn't hurt that Colin Firth played them both on screen.

    1. i totally agree...doesn't. hurt. at. all. oh and read BRIDGET JONES' it's pretty hilarious, but if don't have time, watch the movie. it's pretty close to the book, although there's a whole character and subsequent scenes with that character that are taken out entirely.
