Jane Austen Quiz

I am Marianne Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

Hat tip to my friend, Crystal, over at the Chat & Chew Cafe. All of you Jane Austen fans will love this one. Okay, okay, I'll have to read the book now. Maybe if I talk about it long enough, I'll actually buy the book.

Ha! I took it and I'm Elinor Dashwood.
Hmmphh. Not quite the young, romantic person I wanted to be. LOL

Jessica said...

It's interesting that you're Marianne! I've only seen the movies, but isn't she the young, impulsive, passionately loving one?
:-)

Hi Jessica -

Okay, I'm showing my lack of knowledge here. Can you tell me a little bit about Elinor Dashwood? I came out as Marianne Dashwood, so I assume they're related.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I've taken this test before, and each time I come up Elinor Dashwood. Makes sense. She's one of my alltime favorite Jane Austen characters.

Elinor Dashwood is the older sister in Sense and Sensibility and Marianne is her younger sister. Elinor tends to be more level-headed and sensible while Marianne is more romantic and adventurous. They both have great personalities, but I wish I could be a little more like the outgoing Marianne.

Does that help? :)

Hi Sarah -

Thanks for enlightening me. I'm stunned - me adventurous??? Romantic - yeah, I can see that.

I thought this was fun.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I came out as Marianne Dashwood as well. We are romantic and adventurous at heart. That's why we write. In real life, I'm the level-headed, got to analyze everything type of person.

Jessica said...

Hi Susan,
I guess Sarah answered for me. :-) I haven't read the books and I did see the movie. I would definitely rather be like Marianne, but we are who we are. :-)
So, what adventures have you been on lately?

Hi Jessica -

I haven't done much of anything the last few days except fight a sore throat and cold. Ugh. My Mom also has the bug.

Oh, I know a couple of things I did although I don't know if they qualify as adventures. I spent the Amazon.com gift certificate I won over at Pixnpens on (what else) books.

I also received some money for Christmas. My local Christian bookstore had a fabulous sale. Twelve books are now on my shelf that I've had on my wish list forever. Lots of reviews and author interviews in 2009. :)

I'm blessed.

Susan

Hi Jennifer -

Welcome! Thanks for commenting.

These tests are so much fun, but I don't know how accurate they are. Of course, I love the IQ tests that call me a "word warrior." LOL!

Blessings,
Susan :)
