She loves books so much she'd marry just so she could read more...mood.

Updated: Jun 26, 2023

Why did I start reading it?

After the extraordinary, the Ordinary and Soap left me feeling a bit burned out on fantasy sexism, I struggled to find another light novel to read. This one had the tag 'Strong protagonist' So I hoped this one might be all right.

What is it?

Eli is also known as the Bibliophile Princess. She is engaged to the prince and has been for four years but for some reason, he has not pushed for marriage, despite them both being of age.

What are the characters like?

Honestly, except for the main characters, I didn't really remember anyone else's name.

What's the bad news?

Once the first conflict is resolved I kinda started to find this book a little boring. I don't like insulting books; each one has someone's love and hard work penned into pages but this one just didn't grab me. There are some fun scenes here, some interesting ways the main character uses her book knowledge there but despite a strong start, I can't say I was really invested.

And the good news?

Eli is an interesting character. A little too quiet for my taste but in her head, she's actually quite sassy and her seemingly endless knowledge is fun when she starts talking about it and blindsides everyone around her who assumed she was just another noblewoman. Also, who can't get behind a character whose sole motivation is to hold onto as much reading time as possible.

Would you recommend?

If you love books and are looking for a romance where:

- You can relate to wanting all the reading time ever.

- The will they/won’t they is resolved quickly.

- The main character is a bit of an oddball.

This may be the book for you even if it wasn’t for me.
