Follow Friday #45

Thanks to Parajunkee and Alison Can Read for hosting FF every week.
It's been a while since I've done one of these, and for a bit I couldn't figure out what my answer would be, but here ya go.
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?
A: At first, I wanted to say Hermione. Because, let's face it, she's awesome. She has awesome friends. And she gets to go to Hogwarts. But I thought some more and decided on Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. It's hard not to picture her as Keira Knightly from the 2005 movie. She's not described fully aside from her eyes and her hair, but I'd imagine she'd be pretty (the book says as much). Not drop dead gorgeous, but pretty in a quiet sort of way, if that makes sense. She's smart and quick witted. And hey, she snags Mr. Darcy. Who wouldn't want to be in her place?
What about you guys? Who do you want to be? 


  1. Hopping through. I loved Keira as Elizabeth. I loved Elizabeth Ehle too. So many good movies.

  15. nw follower through GFC as lucyatmax/no pic. I can be found and followed at . Wasn't this a fun question this week. I loved your answer; I'm older and dated myself with my response, But I would love to have been Cherry Ames, the cherry cheeked nurse from author Helen Wells world war era...I think mostly written before the fifties?
    Happy Reading!

    1. I tried to visit your blog, but I couldn't get there! :-( But your answer sounds interesting. I love that era.

  16. Hermoine. Yep. Harry Potter is an awesome read! ;) And a classic. ;) Sounds good.
