Rachel has tagged me again--this time for a tag of one of my very favourite subjects: Jane Austen and her books!
-Paste the button on your blog.
-Leave a list of new questions (optional).
-Answer the questions of the person who tagged you.
1. Do you love Jane Austen? Why or why not?
-YESSSS. I adore Jane Austen. Why? She's hilarious, I love old-fashioned-romance-type books, and just because. She's good.
2. What is your favourite Jane Austen movie?
-I'd have to go with Pride and Prejudice (1995).
3. Would you rather have Mr. Darcy or Mr. Knightley?
-Oooh, hmm, I'd have to go with Mr. Knightley. Mr. Darcy can't be teased, and Mr. Knightley and Emma tease each other all the time.
4. Have you read any of Jane Austen's books? Which ones?
-Yes, I've read all of them.
5. Do you know when Jane Austen's birthday is without looking?
-I actually do! December 16th! I don't remember what year, though...(I did a post on her birthday last year but I won't link to it because I did NOT do a good job with it. *cringes*)
6. Who is your favourite character from Pride and Prejudice?
-Hmmm...Favourite? Overall? I don't know if I can choose that. Let's see, maybe Mr. Bennet, Elizabeth Bennet, and Mr. Darcy, in no particular order. :)
|"I wasn't the obvious favourite? I'm offended."|
|"Oh, Rae, you really couldn't just choose one?"|
7. Would you rather have Kate Winslet as Marianne or Charity Wakefield?
-I know not many share this opinion, but I like Charity Wakefield's Marianne better.
8. How many Jane Austen movies have you seen? Which?
-Pride and Prejudice (1995), Emma (2009), Emma (1996), Sense and Sensibility (1995), Sense and Sensibility (2008), Northanger Abbey (2007), Persuasion (1995), Persuasion (2007)
(Does Pride and Prejudice 2005 even count as a Jane Austen movie? I hesitate to add it to the list.)
9. Who is your favourite character from Emma?
-This one is easier. I'd say Mr. Knightley. For sure.
10. Would you rather have Lydia and Kitty as sisters or Marianne and Margaret?
-Marianne and Margaret!
11. Which Jane Austen movie isn't your favourite?
-(Ahem.) If P&P'05, Fake P&P, counts, then that one is it. :) If not, then I'd go with Northanger Abbey (2007) because of all the...unnecessary Gothic scenes...
12. Do you have a favourite Jane Austen quote? Which?
-Oh, that's hard. Maybe:
Thanks so much for the tag, Rachel! This was quite fun!
Rachel has already tagged most of the bloggers I know, and I am terrible at coming up with questions, so we'll just leave it at that!
