TBR Jar: Pick of the Week

This is a new weekly feature on Charlie Book Fanatic. Every week I will randomly grab a challenge from my TBR jar and based on that, the book I want to read. The week after, I will post a (mini)review, or if I have more to say; a whole review in a separate post, of the book I read in the TBR Jar: Pick of the Week from that week. 

Funnily enough, I got the best challenge ever this week because I bought some books last week that fit this one perfectly. So, this week's challenge is:

Read a classic romance.

I am soooo stoked about this. The two books I wanted to choose from:

Title: Emma
Author: Jane Austen
Series: Standalone
Publisher: Penguin Threads
First Publication: 1815
Genre: Classical romance
Synopsis: Emma Woodhouse is content with her being single. Interfering in the romantic lives of others is her number one delight. But when she attempts to arrange a suitable match for protegee Harriet Smith, everything unravels and her plans have consequences that she never saw coming.

Title: Romeo and Juliet
Author: William Shakespeare
Series: Standalone
Publisher: Dover Publications
First Publication: 1597
Genre: Classical romance
Romeo and Juliet tells the story of two star-crossed lovers and the unhappy fate that befell them as a result of a long and bitter feud between their families.

For this first week of TBR jarring (it is a word now), I decided to go with the shortest and easiest option. Thus, the book (play) I am going to read, is Romeo and Juliet

Honestly, I cannot wait to get started in this one. I already know the complete plotline of this play, but I never actually read it. Exciting!

Do you like classic romances? If so, do you have any favourites?

  1. Love the TBR jar! I've read Romeo and Juliet for school and liked it well enough, although the writing was hard to follow sometimes. Haven't read Emma but I want to. Pride & Prejudice would be my favorite classic romance :)
