I really do have a soft spot for historical fiction based on the lives of princes and princesses from times past. I can't help daydreaming of the beautiful dresses, the dramatic life at court and the old and majestic traditions.
I chose this book because I was in need of a "light read". I expected to be entertained - and I was. I like Meyer's general writing style, however I hate the fact that she writes in first person. It just seem so pretentious to imagine to know how the royals actually thought.
All in all I enjoyed the book, as the light loosely reality-based fiction it was.
