Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee @ Parajunkee’s View and Alison @ Alison Can Read. Each week the two hosts post a question for Book Bloggers to answer, provide a link-up, and choose a participant to feature on their blogs. If you participate, the point is to follow others and in return gain followers.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Feature & Follow! I’m Lillian in case you didn’t know that already 😉 I started blogging a year ago and it has been a fun and crazy year! I read pretty much anything that is placed in front of me, I’m a bit of a cover snob, and I tend to gravitate to young adult fiction. Why young adult? Well, it’s usually a cleaner read than adult fiction, there’s plenty of action/suspense, and who can resist a romance about first love?!
My blog features whatever I happen to be in the mood to read. I’ve had some fun interviews with authors and characters and hope to do more in the very near future. Please join me in some bookish adventures. You can follow via Bloglovin or anyway you choose 😀
This week’s questions is: “If you can step into one characters shoes (in a book) and be them for a day who would it be and why? Also if you want to be creative, what scene?” – Suggested by Seeing Night Book Reviews
Only ONE?!?! I have SO many favorite characters, too many to even attempt to list, but if I had to choose one all-time favorite character it would have to be….
ELIZABETH BENNET from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I have been in love with this story since the first time I read it in high school….and yes ladies (and gentlemen) that was prior to the 2005 flick. This book is one of my all-time favorites and Lizzie is just an awesome character. She’s fierce, loyal, and loves with abandon. Plus I have a soft spot for British literature from this era.
If I could pick just one scene from the book (and movie) it would have to be when Lady Catherine shows up to insist that Lizzie will not marry Mr. Darcy, basically insulting her in her own home. Lizzie’s response is perfect, quick-witted and puts the Lady Catherine in her place. Every time I read this scene I cheer 😀
What character would you be?
…or follow any way you chose 😀
