hopeless romantic







So, its's quite obvious that Blogger went crazy! Apparently I posted this last night instead of 2 days ago! Anyway, Anne of Green Gables, Pride and Prejudice and Little Women are some of my favourite romance stories of all time. I have seen the movies for all of them and love each to death. Jane Austen was always the women who knew the many rules and aspects of love, Louisa May Alcott was the emotive writer and L.M Montgomery was the all rounder who knew so much about everything. Each story has amazing structure and the cosiness and fuzzy feeling that comes with each one is perfect for cold, wintry nights -- all you need is hot chocolate! Overall, its the hardest decision ever to choose which boy I like the best... but don't worry ladies, some day you will find your Mr Darcey, Gilbert Blythe or Laurie Lawrence!

Ohhh I am a massive fan of romance novels, love them haha! Have you read 'The Bronze Horseman'? It's relatively new (not an old classic) but it is my favourite romance novel to date - but very sad too! have lots of tissues on hand. xxx

little women is one of my favorite stories.. I've seen the movie endless times and never get tired of it.. it's magical.. recently I wrote a post about it, actually a scene I felt familiar with...
great choices of romance movies.. another one I adore too and as well know almost every dialogue is Sense and sensibility with kate winslet, hugh grant, emma thompson... jane austen is one of my favorite authors...
take care!

Pride and Prejudice is my fave... have you seen that movie about Jane Austen played by Anne Hathaway? I can't remember the name, but it was a tear-jerker because Jane's life was so similar to that of what she wrote in her books.

oh my heavens above. Are you a mind reader? You should get out of my head because these are my FAVORITE movies! well, some on a long long list. But I have literally been CRAVING little women for a month now. I love the snuggle up to a soft blanket by a fire feeling I get from little women! we are officially best friends.
