Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

Follow my book blog Friday

The question this week from the Follow Friday hosted by is

Q. The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says "you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!" Who are you going to switch with?

This is a really good question, I could spend ages thinking about it and would definitely change my mind depending when asked! It makes me think of the television series 'Lost in Austen'. Hmm. My first thought was perhaps Cathy in Wuthering Heights. Also Hermione from Harry Potter would be fun. I really have to think about this one more and maybe come back to it! 


  1. Haha. That's what I've been suggesting for people to watch who want to trade places with Elizabeth Bennett. =)

  2. Wow - this is a great question. Hard!! Maybe Imogen from A Crowded Marriage or Scarlet O'Hara?? I'll be thinking about this one for awhile.

  3. I love Lost In Austen!! I also enjoyed reading about your picks. I chose Hermione as well. New follower :-)

  4. Hopping through. New follower! I'm a Hermione girl as well. I'd also love to trade with Elizabeth Bennet. What's Lost in Austen about? Is it a fictional show or reality show?
