While Mr Bennet silently reads in his study, and Mrs Bennet’s tales of woe can be heard from miles away, you spend a lovely afternoon in the garden with your dramatic and doting sisters. What is a favourite novel of yours that features a strong sibling relationship?
For this I picked Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini as I loved the relationship between Hector, Lucas, Jason, Ariadne and Cassandra. Some of these are siblings some are cousins.
You and Mary have decided to walk to the bookshop in Meryton to search for the newest releases. Which book or books are you likely to purchase?
I have so many books that I’m dying to read but if I have to pick one it would be Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo unfortunately it doesn’t come out until August.
Netherfield Park has been let at last, and the owner, a Mr Charles Bingley, hosts a magnificent ball at his new estate. What fictional ball gown would you wear?
I’d want to wear the dress on the front of the Fallen book by Lauren Kate as I think it’s gorgeous. I know Luce doesn’t actually wear it in the book but its so beautiful so I don’t care.
It is the Christmas ball and Maria has asked you to join her at the piano. What music would you choose as an accompaniment to your current book?
A book I have read recently is Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley and a song I feel fits this book is Girls/Girls/Boys by Panic! At The Disco.
You’re helping Jane take care of her younger cousins whilst staying with the Gardiners. Which fictional children would you include in your own family?
The kids from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs because their all amazing.
It’s a sombre evening at Hunsford Parsonage, and after dinner, Mr Collins stands by the fireplace and quotes from the Good Book while the party tries not to yawn too obviously. What is a memorable quote from a novel that has always stuck with you?
“I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had courage to go forth into its expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst its peril.” Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
You’ve been invited to dine at Rosings Park by none other than the infamous Lady Catherine de Bourg, but the evening ends in disaster as the pompous Lady insults you and your family. Who’s your favourite fictional villain?
My Favourite villain is Johnathan Morgenstern from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. He’s a complete psychopath but I loved him. And I’m so happy he’s finally in the TV show.
As Lydia has gone down to Brighton with the Forsters, and Elizabeth is off on her jaunt to Derbyshire with the Gardiners, you also want to go away for a quick break. Which fictional location would be your perfect holiday destination?
Rivendell in Middle Earth as it seems like the perfect place get away for those wanting to relax and be surrounded by nature as it’s so beautiful and peaceful.
You’re running to the fine horse chestnut tree on the green to encounter some of your favourite childhood reading memories. What is one that you remember most fondly?
Reading the Rainbow Magic series with my mum as they were the books that got me into reading in the first place. They were also the first books that I read completely on my own.
You’re on a tour of Pemberley and you come across Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy emerging from the pond, scandalously clad in only his wet underdrawers and shirt. You can’t help but swoon at the sight. Aside from Mr Darcy, who is your favourite romantic interest?
This question is so hard as I have so many but if I had to pick it would be Jem Carstairs from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare as he is a complete sweetheart.
