Feature & Follow #4


Guess what?!? I'm this week's Featured Blog! I'm absolutely thrilled to be featured on FF. *squee* Alison and Rachel are the lovely ladies behind Feature & Follow. Make sure to hop by their blogs (alisoncanread and parajunkee) to see the Feature interviews.

Here is this week's question...


Q: Activity! Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?
If I could be any character, I would choose Elizabeth Bennet from Pride & Prejudice. Elizabeth was very intelligent, independent, witty, self-assured and rebelled against society’s expectations. While I like to think I share some of these characteristics, I’ve always envied her wit and self-assuredness. She is a character whose persona I’ve always admired. For me, Elizabeth looks like Elizabeth Ehle who portrayed her in A&E’s production of Pride & Prejudice (with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy! =)




So, if you could be any character, who would you choose? I can't wait to read about your choices!
