Marry, Date or Dump: Jacob Black, José Rodriguez, and Edgar Linton

Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 10.33.15 AM

Happy Monday friends! I’m sticking with last weeks friends, but providing you all with the other point on the love triangle for today’s choices. We have Jacob Black from Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer, José Luis Rodriguez from Fifty Shades of Grey, by E. L. James, and Edgar Linton, by Emily Brontë. Some people view these characters as the sensible choice, while others think they are second best (or even second rate!). Either way, I’m excited to see which character you’d date, which you’d marry, and which you’d dump in the comments.  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Jacob Black, José Rodriguez, and Edgar Linton”

Marry, Date or Dump: Edward Cullen, Christian Grey, & Heathcliff

So, my collection of characters for today’s marry, date or dump might seem a little random at first. Basically, I was trying to think of characters that some people find incredibly charming and other people find incredibly creepy. Also maybe I was just trying to find an excuse to put Edward Cullen into one of these again (just maybe though … I’m not going to fully admit to that). Anyway, for your choices today we have Edward Cullen from Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer, Christian Grey from Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L. James, and (with a bit more literary clout) Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte. I’m excited to read in the comment who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump.

Marry, Date or Dump: Mr. Rochester, Heathcliff, Dr. Frankenstein

A few weeks ago, we studied middle grade books with Gothic influences. It totally inspired me to think about a few of my favorite Gothic novels for today’s marry, date, or dump. We’ve got the brooding Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë, the mysterious and sometimes cruel Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë, and Victor Frankenstein from Frankenstein, by Marry Shelley. Lots of characters with high positives and high negatives, am I right? To play leave a comment letting me know who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump. Can’t wait to see who you pick!

Marry, Date or Dump: Men from Bronte Novels

4470091209_96b70b2a7cSince we’ve done a marry, date or dump about the Bronte sisters, but never about the heroes they created. So today we are going to travel back into Gothic literature, so you can tell me how you would rank the following Bronte male leads: the brooding Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre, the even broodier Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights, the probably unknown Gilbert Markham from Anne Bronte’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. I can’t wait to see who people choose. I had an English teacher tell me once that people were either Jane Eyre people or Wuthering Heights people, but I’m not so sure. I like both! And The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is actually my favorite of three. So I’m excited to see who you pick in the comments.
