The Captain Will be skipping this one matey. Not to me taste.

julianna ➹ A lack of Princess Bride references? Inconceivable!

message 3: by Brinkley (new) - added it

Brinkley If the word "marriage" was ever used in this book, they should've at least spelled it like "mawage."

But anyway: This Eldon dude DOESN'T DESERVE Princess Bride references. Because he is a jerk.

You keep on using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

message 5: by T♠️bi (new)

T♠️bi I clicked onto this after hoping that title would have something meaningful to it, and then thankfully saw your review . . . What? A book with that title lacking ANYTHING 'Princess Bride'?!?!? As @julianna said best: Inconceivable!

message 6: by JoJo (new) - rated it 1 star

JoJo Great review-I love your Princess Bride references! I am only 25% in and so sick of hearing about the stupid wish at this point already. If the rest of the book beats it into your head that Eldon hates that he has to make a wish, I'm out.

message 7: by Lia (new)

Lia I was just wondering if the title could possible be unrelated to Princess Bride and am now disappointed..

Peaches I agree with parts of the review, but I don't think a PB reference would've made sense in the plot, unless Eldon watched it in angst, which would've gotten on everyone's nerves more.
