Marry, Date or Dump: Mr. Darcy

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 12.54.08 PM

Happy Monday! Who had a nice holiday weekend? I hope everyone. I rewatched (both) Bridget Jones movies last week and definitely have Darcy on the brain. I thought it’s be fun pick three versions of Mr. Darcy to marry, date, or dump this week. I decided on Mr. Darcy from the book (or traditional movie adaptation if you like!), Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones (sawoon), and William Darcy from The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Let me know who you’d marry, date and dump in the comments!

Marry, Date or Dump: Mockingjay

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 11.27.01 AM

Who’s excited for Thursday? Last year, before Mockingjay One I asked if people wanted to marry, date or dump Peeta, Gale, and Finnick. This year, I’m going a little older and want to know what you think of Haymitch Abernathy, Plutarch Heavensbee, and Caesar Flickerman. If you feel like playing, let me know in the comments who you would marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump. Also feel free to chat about if you are looking forward to the movie or dreading it. I’m a little of both … this one gets sadder than sad so I expect a lot of tears.  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Mockingjay”

Marry, Date or Dump: Girl on the Train

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 9.56.20 AM

Taking a break from YA today, to marry, date, or dump characters from Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. I started this book last winter, when everyone was talking about it, but it actually took me over six months to finish – so not a particularly thrilling thriller for me. Although the fault was probably that I was trying to read it on the subway (thematic!), so I didn’t spend big chunks of time with it. Anyways, today if you so choose you can marry, date, or dump (1) Rachel Hawkins, the thirty-something alcoholic still reeling from her divorce with Tom, (2) Megan, a woman Rachel spies on from the train who after kissing a man that isn’t her husband disappears, or (3) Anna, Tom’s new wife. Put your choices in the comments (if anyone decides to play … I know this is an unusual pick for me).  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Girl on the Train”

Marry, Date or Dump: Emma, by Jane Austen

Screen Shot 2015-11-01 at 2.17.39 PM

I will admit that Emma ranks pretty low on my list of favorite Austen novels, although I do really enjoy the film version with Gwyneth Paltrow and Clueless is an all time favorite of mine. I don’t know why I woke up with this book on the brain, but I think it would be fun to think about who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump from the book. You can choose whatever characters you want from the novel. Whether you want ladies, male characters, or a mix – I’m very excited to see your choices!  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Emma, by Jane Austen”

Accordingly, here are three spooky characters for you to marry, date or dump. We’ve got Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster (sometimes misidentified as Frankenstein) and Roderick Usher from the Edgar Allen Poe story “The Fall of the House of Usher”. Excited to hear who you pick!

Marry, Date or Dump: Edward Cullen, Beau Swan, & Jacob Black

Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 1.55.40 PM

I thought I’d take the temperature of the group and see if anyone who was Team Edward or Team Jacob has suddenly switched over to team Beau. I just started Life and Death (the gender-swapped version of Twilight) this morning, so I don’t have any clear ideas yet. I know one or two of you were thinking about reading it too. Let me know in the comments who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump.  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Edward Cullen, Beau Swan, & Jacob Black”
