Feature & Follow (23): Colonel Brandon

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! 

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to Wordpress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don't have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

Question: Who is your to-die-for book crush? What do you think he looks like?

Answer: I'm not really into the smexy hotties that seem to be splashed over so many books these day. I'm an old-fashioned kind of gal who loves simple and elegant.

My crush is Colonel Brandon from Sense and Sensibility and who would he look like? Alan Rickman, of course (he's also my secret Hollywood crush).


  1. Ooh, good one! I wasn't even thinking about Jane Austen crushes! Good call! :D My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D

  2. Oohhh Alan! He is something isn't he? If I had to pick a bookish crush I'd go for either Mr. Darcy or Atticus Finch :D

  3. I love Alan Rickman he is the best :)

  4. Aww I love Alan Rickman in this film :)
    Wonderful choice!

  5. OOh nice! I struggled with my visual choice because actors and models never live up to my impressions! I took the easy route thought and did choose a cover model who makes a very good presentation on my character though!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  6. What I don't like is half-naked guys on book covers. They look too photoshopped. Alan is an amazing actor :)
    New follower! Happy Friday!

  11. New follower :) And great choice! Mine was Christian Grey of 50 Shades of Grey (that, or Henry VIII from the show The Tudors, even though this is a book question lol). Happy reading!
