too DNF at 40%This book wasn t overwhelmingly romantic The main character wasnDNF at 40%This book wasn t overwhelmingly romantic The main character wasn overwhelmingly stupid I guess the word overwhelming is the key here because it s what this book wasn t It was completely underwhelming and mind numbingly boring and I think that s reason nough for my rating I didn t njoy it It was about a slave girl who s chosen for some reason to be a royal tutor and all of a sudden the prince falls in love with her Like wtf I don t The Social Machine: Designs for Living Online even know what happened All of a sudden around the 20% mark they started kissing leaving me scratching my head because damn thatscalated uicklyI mean if a minor resistance plot a dreamy romance and reading about learning to read and write floats your boat good for you But to me there are interesting things in life than this book Like watching my laundry dry.
