Introducing Summer Guest-Bloggers!

Since I'm going to be gone this summer, I asked four delightful ladies who run blogs that I love to post on my blog. They have a special series of posts planned that I'm sure you'll enjoy. This post is to introduce them. Each has her own color, so pay attention, as these are the colors they'll be using throughout their posts!

First of all, I'm introducing Miss Amy Dashwood, from "Yet Another Period Drama Blog."
Summarize your blog in a paragraph.
Yet Another Period Drama Blog"Yet Another Period Drama Blog" is my place to write whatever random nonsense comes into my head.  I review movies, gush over my favorite characters, share snippets of my writing and go on and on about the amazing works of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Baroness Orczy and Elizabeth Gaskell, just to name a few.

Your favorite Jane Austen book…
Pride and Prejudice.

Your favorite Jane Austen movie adaption…
This is a tie between Pride and Prejudice (1995) and Emma (2009).

A favorite period drama…
I have too many favorites to count, but one of my favorite non-Austen dramas is Little Dorrit (2008).

Up next, Miss Laurie from "Old Fashioned Charm."
Old-Fashioned CharmSummarize your blog in a paragraph.
"Old-Fashioned Charm" is my place for posting about "Everything Old-Fashioned Under The Sun!" There you'll find post about Jane Austen's novels and characters, period dramas, classic literature, period art, period drama actors, historical figures and a new period drama related game each week.

Your favorite Jane Austen book…
Northanger Abbey. It's been my favorite since I first read it when I was seventeen. It's such a sweet fun story and it contains Catherine Morland, Eleanor Tilney and Henry Tilney, need I say more?

Your favorite Jane Austen movie adaption…
Persuasion (1995) is my favorite closely followed by Emma (2009) but most of the Jane Austen film adaptations are always favorites.

A favorite period drama…
Besides the Jane Austen adaptations one of favorites is Cranford (and Return to Cranford) because the characters are so lovely and their stories always make me laugh and cry.

Now introducing Miss Melody from "Regency Delight ~Jane Austen, etc.~"
Summarize your blog in a paragraph.
Regency Delight ~Jane Austen, etc.~"Regency Delight ~Jane Austen, etc.~" is just what it sounds like: most of my posts are Jane Austen related, but they are not limited to that, because I love talking about other books and movies and just about anything old-fashioned. I pretty much made my blog so I could ramble on about the things that excite me to other people who are excited by them as well. They're harder to come by in everyday life, you see, but I can hardly believe how many kindred spirits I have found out there since I started blogging!

Your favorite Jane Austen book…
Pride and Prejudice. And all the Jane Austen novels are favorite books with me. Just so you know.
Your favorite Jane Austen movie adaption…
Pride and Prejudice (1995), though Emma (2009) is a close second-favorite.

A favorite period drama…
Anne of Green Gables. I mention that one because it's a period drama I've adored ever since I can remember, though just mentioning "a favorite" is very difficult indeed. ;-)

And finally, Miss Elizabeth Bennet from "Elegance of Fashion."

Elegance of FashionSummarize your blog in a paragraph.
"
Elegance of Fashion" is a period drama/historical costuming blog. It originally started out as a sewing blog (and you can still see my sewing projects on there), but then it evolved into a period drama blog. At "Elegance of Fashion," I do a number of different posts. One of the things I do is I review period dramas; I review different aspects of a period drama and give it a final rating out of 5. I also hold tournaments where my readers can vote for their favorite period drama characters. I also like to hold blog events with different posts during the event days.

Your favorite Jane Austen book…
Pride and Prejudice (of course!). Sense and Sensibility is a close second.

Your favorite Jane Austen movie adaption…
Pride and Prejudice (1995). I actually watched that version before reading the book (shocking!), but when I actually read the book, I could nearly picture what was going on as it was in the miniseries.

A favorite period drama…
A random favorite period drama? Haven't watched Lark Rise to Candleford in a little while... So, Lark Rise to Candleford.
