Hey there, fellow readers! ~ ♥
One of the main goals of this year for me was to read a classic each month. So far it’s being going great so it’s time to share with you a little of the book i read this month.
So this month i decided i would read one of the most iconic stories of all time (i guess) – Romeo and Juliet.
And i did.
The thing is, i rememeber watching the Leonardio DiCaprio version of it and it got all confused in my head. Now, remembering that movie reminded me of Skam, which comes to my mind a lot lately but has nothing to do with Romeo and Juliet.
In short i did read Romeo and Juliet, and i gotta admit, i don’t understand why is it such a huge story.
Like, Romeo was in love with another young woman, and he forgot about her like ten seconds? Their love lasted 2-3 days tops? This is such a weird story. They fell in love the moment they met but they didn’t know anything about each other. It makes zero sense to me.
But i was such a fun story to read, because you know the old language and trying to understand what the heck are they saying.
Still, i’m surprised it is such a big story. I’m still laughing at it (not much but a little).
I mean, the story is so short, i read it in one sit, and then they both died and that’s it. They didn’t live happily ever after, and everything because of a love that lasted seconds. It’s so so weird to think about it. I think i liked better West Side Story.
So, another month, another classic read. I just realized that all the books i read except for Frankenstein were written by men, and i’m planning on changing that, or at least i hope so, i want to read Charlotte Bronte, maybe Jane Austen. If you have recomendations to books i should read i’ll be very happy, because all the books i picked up for the challenge are by men. 🤦♀️.
Anyway, it took me about 2 hours to read Romeo and ?Juliet so i won’t say it was a waste of my time, because it’s a classic and now i’ve read it. But yeah, if i ever find a character in a book who has this book as their favorite i’ll be mad. If you know of any character like that, let me know, so i can be mad.
That’s all for this month post of Reading The Classics! Hope next month is a better one!
