Bout of Books 5.0- Day 2 Challenges

Limerick Challenge hosted by Curiosity Killed the Bookworm

Oh! I love a gripping whodunit
Who pushed him from the summit
Who did the horrendous crime
of all who needs to do time
And finally who is the culprit

Character Interaction hosted by Once Upon a Time
In another Readathon mini-challenge I decided Mr. Darcy and Scarlett O' Hara would make a good couple. Here is the interaction between them made from real quotes from the Pride and Prejudice and Gone with the Wind (movie). This is a scene between Ashley and Scarlett. I have changed Ashley's dialogues with quotes from Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.

Darcy: In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not repressed.
Scarlett: Don't tease me now. Have I your heart, my darling?
Darcy: I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding.
Scarlett: And I know you must care about me. Oh, you do care, don't you?
Darcy: My good opinion once lost, is lost forever.
Scarlett: Don't you... don't you want to marry me?
Darcy: My temper I dare not vouch for.
Scarlett: But you can't. Not if you care for me!
Darcy: My temper would perhaps be called resentful.
Scarlett: All I know is that I love you!
Darcy: I cannot forget the follies and vices of others.
Scarlett: But you love me!
Darcy: I am in no humor at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men

Darcy storms out of the room.

Scarlett: I can't let him go. I can't. There must be some way to bring him back. Oh, I can't think about this now! I'll go crazy if I do! I'll think about it tomorrow. But I must think about it. I must think about it. What is there to do? What is there that matters? Tara! Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day!

Relocate hosted by The Grammarian's Reviews
I finished reading Hypothermia by Arnaldur Indriðason, a detective story based in Reykjavík, Iceland, it was chilling and sometimes creepy. Death by Hypothermia, snow storm are some of the features of the story. I will relocate the story to The Arabian Desert and death would by sunstroke and snow storm will be replaced by sand storm.

Some more Limericks

Here is my limerick
Hope it doesn't make you sick
I know it is not funny
Or at least punny
Or the best of the pick

But then you asked for it

I hope it is not a crime
If it doesn't rhyme
After all I am not a poet
And you know it
May be another Time
