Kiss, Marry, Kill: Jane Austen Bad Boys

This is a regular feature on my blog. Here's how it works: you take a book, choose 3 guy characters from the book, and then the other person has to pick one to kiss, one to marry, and one to kill.

You all know how much I like Jane Austen, and of her many talents, one was definitely creating such delightfully despicable...bad boys. So this week, it's 3 men from 3 different Jane Austen novels – guys you wouldn't want to bring home to meet the family.

1.) Willoughby from Sense & Sensibility

2.) Henry Crawford from Mansfield Park

3.) Frank Churchill from Emma

So...who do you kiss, who do you marry, and who do you kill? And as always, if you'd like to join up and do your own, feel free to mention it in the comments or leave a link to your post there :)


  1. Okay, I haven't read Emma, but I don't even care if Frank Churchill is evil and people are going say they want to kill him. If he's portrayed by Ewan McGregor, then I want to both kiss and marry him. Kill the others. Ewan all the way!

  2. I would kiss Willoughby.
    I would marry Frank.
    I would kill Henry.

    Phew! That was fun! I just watched Sense & Sensibility two nights ago. I wanted to strangle Willoughby!

  3. @Jenni Elyse: Haha, your comment totally made me smile. I have the feeling lots of people will agree with you! :P

    @Taffy: Oh, I know, he's such a cad! :D

  4. OMGOMGOMG I love this SO HARD. I can't even...

    So, the first time I read Mansfield Park, I was all about the Edmund. The second time I was like WTF?? Now I'm a firm believer that Franny should have accepted Henry. Edmund is so booooring! Henry and Franny would have been good for each other.

    SO... I have to say

    Kiss Willoughby (oh, the passion!)
    Marry Henry
    Kill Frank (he's just insufferable, honestly)

  5. ZOMG I FAIL AT LIFE! I didn't realize Ewan was Frank!!! The hair totally threw me off or something... O_O

  6. @Casey: It's been quite a while since I've read Mansfield Park, but I think the last time I did I was an Edmund fan. Not positive I'd still react the same if I read it again now, but I'm pretty sure I always disliked Henry LOL. Also yes, Frank Churchill sure is insufferable!

    (And I don't blame you for getting confused with that odd hair Ewan has going on there :D)

  7. mhm.. I leave all my shares of Mr. McGregor to you, girls..

    I just want Mr. Henry Craford, please.. ;")

    So - I'd like to ignore the other guys and go with Henry Crawford - you do the kissin' and killin' with the other two, please.. I am quite engaged right now.. ;"p

  8. @Irene Palfy: Your response made me laugh out loud! Although I have the feeling you just might have to share him... ;)

  9. Kill Henry
    Kiss Frank
    and Marry Willoughby

    an interesting round :)

  10. Oh, this is fun!
    And challenging!

    I'd kill Willoughby
    Kiss Frank
    Marry Harry

  11. @yabooknerd: Glad you enjoyed! :)

    @Kody Keplinger: Yep, I try to make it hard to decide...that's half the fun of it! :D


I love comments, so post away!
