R – The Richest Romance – Literary Smackdown #AtoZChallenge 2016

R - Literary Smackdown
Everyone loves a good romance with tension and fiction and, of course, a happy ending. Today for out Literary Smackdown we have two of the greats pitted against each other. Which is the Richest Romance, please tell us which has your vote for the AtoZChallenge.

Who will you vote for in Literary Smackdown

  • Jane Eyre
    Is your vote with Charlotte Bronte’s sweet Jane and the deceitful, but tragic Mr Rochester? Poor orphan Jane who was mistreated by her maternal uncle’s family, but rose above her beginnings to become a governess and meet the surly Mr Rochester. Of course they can do nothing, but fall in love, only to have more obsticals thrown in their path. Do Jane and Edward have the richest romance?


  • Pride and Prejudice
    How about the proud and condescending Mr Darcy and the lovely Elizabeth Bennet? This is a love built gradually after many misconceptions and a few home truths. Lizzy is a witty, intelligent young woman who comes to realise she may have judged Darcy too harshly as Darcy tries to find a way to express how he really feels.  Will you give your vote to Elizabeth and Darcy?
Vote for the Richest Romance:

What is the AtoZChallenge?

For those who don’t know, the AtoZChallenge is a giant blog hop with thousands of blogs taking part. Every day in April, apart from Sundays, these blogs will post using a letter of the alphabet at a prompt, e.g. A on 1st, B on 2nd etc.
It has been running since 2010 and was thought up by the lovely Arlee Bird who put out a challenge and it has grown and grown since. It is a superb way to meet other bloggers and to have a huge amount of fun.


  • Saying hello from A to Z, Tasha. I have read both books and enjoyed both romances. The red room in Jane Eyre where Rochester kept his wife channeled that gothic element to make Jane Eyre more than just a romance but a mystery as well. And since I like to read mysteries, I’d put my vote on Jane Eyre.

  • My vote goes to Pride and Prejudice. It’s the one I’ve seen. Sorry, I’ve never read the books.
