Miss Kellie from Accordion to Kellie is hosting her annual Literary Heroine Blog Party and Giveaway (here)
I think I may have participated last year although I don’t know if I kept that post. Anyway, here are the questions she posted and my answers to said questions.
Oh, and she cannot be annoying…Emm, ahem.
Hermione Granger-she is brilliant, patiently loves unrequited for a while, and is loyal.
Margaret Hale-she maintains her dignity around the obnoxious Mrs. Thornton and irritating Mr. Thornton (I do like him, but he IS irritating sometimes I like to like those I dislike).
Lucy Snowe-she endures so much loneliness and neglect, yet she neither whines nor allows herself to be beaten down, she is also rather funny.
Anne Shirley-she is elegant and imaginative and intelligent and funny.
I will choose to take this as period drama novels. It really depends on what I have read/thought about most recently or my mood. Today I will say North and South, Little Women, Wives and Daughers, Much Ado About Nothing, and Keeper of the Bees. Yeah, random and only four, well my brain was put on the spot.
I will go with Benedict although I am sure he would make me bawl my eyes out in real life. Why? He is funny and marries Beatrix after all. And Kenneth Branaugh is brilliant as him, btw.
And I picked books with few or no significant secondary characters. I will be contrary and pick a least favorite main character: Cynthia Kirkpatrick. I hate her. And I actually know people who sympathize with her and try to excuse her.
I would go to Scotland and visit the Highlands, see the heather, visit castles, and stay in the mountains for a while. Oh, and buy yarn and listen to people speak Gaelic.
I really don’t know-I would think the 20th, but I have read quite a few from both the 19th and the 21st as well.
All my favorite heroes leave my mind…
Harry Potter, no, I am perfectly serious.
A ivy and rose covered castle/cottage hidden high in the mountains, thousands of miles from civilization, situated in a sylvan vale. It will have wondrous gardens filled with roses and foxglove and ferns and forget-me-nots and every other romantic flower and have a true evergreen maze.
Inside everything will be gleaming dark wood, silver and gold, silk and velvet, porcelain and glass.
I will go with my ideal fashion style-romantic and faerytale.
Yes, why does there have to be about four names including surnames in Wuthering Heights? I am sure there are other times I have not cared for names, but I cannot think of any currently.
Why cannot I think of any?
I hate rakes-why cannot I think of a good one?
I will go with Sauron because I am brain dead. He is not actually a villain-rather pure evil, but whatever. I can think of more jerks than villains.
Um, this displays my character better than my hat description….eep
Color Me Beautiful
The Jane Austen Handbook
Lets pretend that I am a good accomplished young woman and say embroidery and reading and watching period drama movies. I am afraid it really would be wasting time on the computer and watching modern and lame T.V. and getting cranky or spending my soul away on clothes.
A little silk sailorish type hat with a birdcage veil, nothing too ostentatious, but very me. Maybe with a handmade silk flower and hints of crystals.
I am attending college on campus. I was home schooled and then obtained my Associate’s Degree online. Enough said.
Disclaimer. Please do not take favorites (excepting questions allowing lists) in an absolutely literal sense. It really depends on what I am reading/thinking/watching/feeling at the time 😀
