Before You Meet Prince Charming Quotes
So far, I am rooting for the commoners in this book to revolt, but I doubt that will happen. This type of thinking actually sounds like the reason that countries have rebelled against their leaders. The mother-Queen-is rarely seen in this story. I don't know why that is so, but it troubles me that she is so little involved in her daughter's life. By the way, the fact that the Princess has no name irritates me also. Actually, I really disliked this goody good young woman.
I was sort of hoping that the alligator that lived in the moat would eat her. Alas, the gator appears to be a vegetarian because he-according to Miss Mally- eats pond scum. I am equally amazed that all festivities in the book are considered evil.
Getting together with other young women and having fun is called evil. That is a bit strong. Having fun just for the sake of enjoyment is not a sin. Even in Franny Burney's works 's the women went to balls and had social picnics. I have no idea why Miss Mally is against events where young people can meet and socialize. Mally implies that those who don't follow her guidelines will automatically be unhappy. A lot of us dated and ended up happily married. To claim that there is one way to find a spouse when the human population is full of a variety of personalities, cultures and circumstances seems to be very narrow minded.
It makes me wonder about the author's experience level with other people. Perhaps she isn't purposely being dishonest but has had limited contact with those who hold different views then her own. What concerns me most is this quote from her book: A girl can defraud by dressing in a way so that boys will notice us, flirting with our eyes, or even just by the way we smile at a certain time or laugh at every jokeThat sounds much more extreme. ANY mention of Prince Charming, galloping dramatically on his white steed, coming to sweep you off your feet.
In fact I'd go so far as to say I hate it.
When Cows and Kids Collide: Before You Meet Prince Charming: The Beginning
It seems to suggest that I have no agency in my own life; plus Prince Charming sounds like a super-arrogant and impossibly-[annoyingly]-perfect guy; plus I'm in my tower on PURPOSE and unless he's bringing food or more books, I'm fine thank you very much. So, I agree that the dating system is not the best way to do things. Sarah Mally stated that, and recognised that some people will then ask "but how will I meet Prince Charming if I don't date??
I assume you had to meet the guy somewhere before you could date him anyway Again, that's super annoying and vague. For a start, not everyone goes to a huge church!
God will send my future husband if marriage is His plan for me at the right time? But will he come with a label saying "God's pick"??
How do I tell him apart from the other guys?? I get sarcastic when I feel too much.
I don't mean to be disrespectful. Opening each chapter is a cute little pseudo-medieval story.

Now since I haven't had any writing published, I really shouldn't be picking at it. But the opening info-dump!
And then, he's either ignorant about the evil crocogator in the moat, or he's fine with his daughter talking to it?? The crocogator, by the way, keeps putting wrong ideas and desires into the princess's mind No peers pressuring her or anything. And as another reviewer pointed out, the princess talks openly to her father which is a good thing! Firstly, it's way more likely she'd talk to her mother - that's just how these things work!
