Hamlette's I ❤ Austen Week has begun!! To start it off, she made this fun tag to fill out! Go check out her tag post here, and her master post HERE.
On to the tag:
Sense and Sensibility 1995. The first time my mom showed it to me was when I was very young. I remember that "her feet got cold" and the ending. Also Sense and Sensibility was the first of her books I read.
2. What is your favorite Austen book?
I have only read three, and Sense and Sensibility and Emma are a tie for first.
|This is my favorite cover!|
3. Favorite heroine? Why do you like her best?
My favorite one used to be Emma Woodhouse, but I like the book, but she is not my favorite.
|Emma 1996 version|
Who can't love Elizabeth Bennet? But, I'll go with Elinor Dashwood, I love how sensible she is. And kind, loving, the list goes on!
|See! It even says I'm like her! To take this quiz click HERE,|
4. Favorite hero? Why do you like him best?
Colonel Brandon!!!!! He puts others first, and he's COLONEL BRANDON what other answer do I need? (Alan Rickman) And I also love Fitzwilliam Darcy. He overcomes his pride. ❤! And Mr. Knighley portrayed by Jeremy Northam.
5. Do you have a favorite film adaptation of Austen's work?
Did I not just screech myself hoarse up there!!!?? I also love Pride and Prejudice 1995 and I am so excited to be reviewing it this week!!!!!
6. Have your Austen tastes changed over the years? (Did you start out liking one story best, but now like another better? Did you think she was boring at first, then changed your mind? Etc.)
I used to love Emma, then I didn't like it, now I like it again. Also, depends on the Austen, I'm not a big fan a Persuasion, but I really like all the others.
7. Do you have any cool Austen-themed things (mugs, t-shirts, etc)? (Feel free to share photos if you want.)
Do my sister's things count? She has A Guniea Pig Pride and Prejudice (Reviewed here.) (Gift from me),
and a complete set of all the books. I have a journal that could sort of be called Austente.
8. If you could ask Jane Austen one question, what would you ask her?
Who do you mostly relate to in your characters?
9. Imagine someone is making a new film of any Jane Austen story you choose, and you get to cast the leads. What story do you want filmed, and who would you choose to act in it?
I like the idea of Emma Watson as Elizabeth Bennet, but you can't have a better Darcy.
10. Share up to five favorite Jane Austen quotations!
I guess Sense and Sensibility is my favorite.
That tag was so fun Hamlette! I can't wait for the rest of the week!!!!
