I recently read a contemporary fiction that I didn’t like. It seemed too much of a stretch for me and I kept thinking “yeah, right. That would never happen in real life, so no, I will not enjoy this novel.” It actually wasn’t that bad, but maybe I was in a bitter Betty type mood and set myself up for disappointment. So when I heard about Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck, I didn’t think I would read it. A modern day fairy tale??? William is already married and unless Harry wants to come to Austin and hang out with me, not interested. 😉
Thanks to the world of twitter (and my fellow book fan Rissi), I kept seeing great recommendations pop up about this one, so I decided to give it a shot. Because if we’re all honest, who doesn’t love a modern day fairy tale?
And that it was! What a lovely tale and charmer of a story. There’s something to European royalty that I’ll always be curious about. And the accents. That’s enough to watch a movie/read a book about them.
It’s not all cheesy either (like the 18 million sequels to The Prince and Me. Why did no one tell them to stop after the first one? Why???) A few days later, I was thinking about the characters, wondering what they were up to. I promise I’m not lying. I actually had to remind myself they were fictional. How embarrassing. 😉
It’s liking watching one of your favorite rom coms with your girlfriends. All you need is some popcorn, chocolate (which I usually need at any occasion) and some drinks. Pop in the film and enjoy a sweet, romantic tale.
And since Prince Harry is still single (let’s be honest, he’s grown up to be quite the looker), I think I still have a chance at being a princess. I kid folks! I kid!
