Moonless Book Release Blogfest

 

In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.

Her nightmares become reality: a dead baron, red-eyed wraiths, and forbidden love with a man hunted by these creatures. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with her beloved and risk becoming one of the Soulless.

 So here's the question: If you lived in a society where arranged marriages were a la mode, whom would you beg your parents to set you up with? (Literary characters and celebrities welcomed.)
 
 
Okay, so I went in to look at my bookshelves to get an answer to this question. {B/c sometimes my brain needs visual prompting} And I soon as I saw The Raven Boys, the sweet and exasperating Gansey came to mind, and the 16 yr.old girl in me squealed- 'Him! Him!' The first quality that I love about Gansey is that he's so kind. He takes care of his brood of friends like a mother hen.

And once we were married, if I was ever sick w/the flu, I'm sure he'd bring me glasses of Sprite and hover in concern outside the bathroom as I threw up. Secondly, he's above his upbringing of having only the best by driving a crappy car that he's fondly named The Pig. I think that shows character...or maybe just stubbornness. (uh-oh) And lastly, he's good-looking and rich. Hello, awesome vacations!   
 
 Gansey is the second boy on the left.

  2. I love it! Admittedly I did read the first 50 pages of that book...then couldn't finish and I can see where he'd be a winner. =)

  3. I think Darcy would be a fine arranged match for me, especially if we could move him to this era. I don't fancy living in a house without plumbing. :)
