My Book Boyfriend(s)

Missie over at The Unread Reader, a really fun book blog that just reached 1,000 followers (!!), is inviting other bloggers to share a book boyfriend in this post.

Not too surprisingly, I'm going to be greedy and select two boyfriends.


Kind of a traditional choice, but I love, love, love Mr. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice in the book and as portrayed by Colin Firth. Jennifer Ehle is also my favorite portrayal of Elizabeth Bennet, and I think part of the appeal from the mini-series is the way they interact.

What's not to like about a man willing to anonymously help his beloved? And, despite Elizabeth's taking offense, I actually find it rather charming that he loved her in spite of thinking he shouldn't.


On a more contemporary level, I choose Zsadist from J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Oh, yes--a dark, dangerous bad boy who is really a lonely, hurt, misunderstood man in need of the right woman. Sign me up!

Who is your choice for your book boyfriend?

How much do I love Z?! He is crazy and a bit scary, but under all that hurt is a really big heart. I just LOVE him.

And of course I love the BBC version of P&P and CF is so handsome, I also like the remake too.

Hey, thanks for your comment on my blog! I am very happy I have found your book blog! I am a real bookworm as well - and loved Lover Awakened from J.R. Ward a lot as well. :D

Mmm...I love Zsadist! I'm a V girl myself, but Z is definitely a vamp to love!

If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor

The May selection for my work book club is Jon McGregor's If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things (2002). The novel follows various individuals in one neighborhood on a particular day, an ordinary day that ends with a terrible tragedy.

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
