Would You Rather Book Tag

           

I have decided to do my very first book tag here on my blog! I got this one after searching the Internet and the one I found was by Sincerely, A Book Nerd so definitely go check their blog out! (It looks as if they have stopped updating though). I hope that you enjoy this tag!


1. Rather read only a series or stand-alone books?:
       I'm going to go with series. I love getting to know characters over the course of many books. I can get so much more attached to them that way! Of course, that becomes a problem when the authors decide to kill off those favorite characters of mine.

2. Rather read a book whose main character is male or female?:
           Female definitely. I can relate to them a lot more. That's not saying that I don't enjoy books from male perspectives, but I can enjoy ones from female perspectives a lot better.


 3. Rather shop only at Barnes & Noble (or another actual bookstore) or Amazon?:
        I would rather shop in an actual bookstore, unfortunately, I don't get to go to real bookstores a lot. 

4. Rather all books become movies or tv shows?:
         Honestly to me, it depends. I don't think them turning the Fault in Our Stars into a tv show would have worked, but I'd love to see The Selection Series become a tv show. To me, it just depends on the book/ series. 

5.Rather read 5 pages per day or read 5 books per week?:
         5 books a week! I do not have time to do that, but that would be the dream!

6. Rather be a professional book reviewer or an author?:
          Well, since my dream is to become an author I think that answers that question, but I also love reviewing books.

7. Rather only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every six months?:
            New book every six months. I love getting to read new books!

8. Rather be a librarian or own a bookstore?:
             I am going to cheat a little. I'd rather own a bookstore so I could make some money, but I'd have an option for renting books for those that couldn't afford to buy them.

9. Rather only read your favorite genre or your favorite author?:
              I'm going to go with the genre because then I'd have more books to read.

10. Rather only read physical books or e-books?:
               Physical books. I don't mind reading e-books, but there is just something about being able to hold a physical copy of something in your hands.


Who do I tag?:
          I tag whoever wants to do this tag, however, I do ask that you please link back to this post! 

Love,
Baleigh

13 Things to Expect From Jane Austen Month

In case I haven't been talking about it way too much, Jane Austen Month starts September 1st here at Baleigh's Better Life. The idea behind the month is to not only celebrate one of my favorite authors but also to give me the chance (*cough* motivation) to read some of the works I haven't gotten around to yet. We (I say we because I really want anyone who wants to participate in this to do so) will be reading, rereading, reviewing, comparing, discussing, and just be having lots of fun this coming month.
Day 1: Pride and Prejudice Vs. Emma- This blog post will be all about comparing my two favorite Austen works.
Day 2: Pride and Prejudice Revisited- This is all about getting to talk about what I think of Pride and Prejudice now (or after I reread it in a few days.).
Day 3: Northanger Abbey Book Review
Day 4: Sense and Sensibility Book Review
Day 5: Emma Revisited
Day 6: Mansfield Park Revisited


Day 7: Persuasion Book Review
Day 8: Jane Austen Movies Ranked- Wh…

Jane Austen's Heroes and Scoundrels Ranked

A few days ago I did my blog post over ranking Jane Austen's Heroines. I had a lot of fun picking and choosing which female characters would go where in the list. I have decided to do the same thing today, but with Austen's men. Now, like the blog post about her heroines, I will only be talking about the main love interests in the stories. Which means that there will be more characters listed here than in the one about heroines. Basically, if they were interested in the main character or the main character was interested in them (or if everyone thought they liked each other *cough* Frank Churchill *cough*)  they ended up on this list.

14. Mr. Willoughby:
       Breaking one of our main characters hearts? Check. Getting someone pregnant and then abandoning them? Check.  Going after a rich woman because he got disinherited for knocking up a girl? Check. Willoughby is one of those Austen characters that does a complete 180. At the beginning, you are thinking that he is a good cha…

Pride and Prejudice Vs. Emma

As some of you may know from my Five Favorite Classic Novels post: Emma and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen are two of my favorite classic novels so it only felt fitting to compare them to each other for the first post for Jane Austen Month.  I just want to make it clear that I love both of these novels and that they both have things that I enjoy about them.

1. Female Leads:
          In my opinion, Jane Austen has created some of the best literary characters of all time. The main characters that she creates are no exception to this rule.
          In Pride and Prejudice, it is Elizabeth Bennet. Witty, opinionated, and basically who every Austen fan strives to be like.

She, however, judges people before she even really knows them (Guilty!!!). She has incredible character development though, and she isn't afraid to admit that she is wrong when…
