someone came over to check my computer for something while I was reading Ella Enchanted and eating lunch at my desk… must’ve looked like a 13 year old reading it!
I’ve read it so many times in my life it’s weird I haven’t memorized it but I forget things every time
overall it’s my favorite younger adult fairytale book… I recommend picking it up if you know someone younger. There are only a few parts I find issue with though I guess some of it’s simply due to loosely (quite loosely) following Cinderella’s story
this time though I noticed two new things
1) Char is kind of a jerk at one point. He tells her his secret, which is that he can be “slow to forgive” and gets very angry sometimes, and he tells this story about how this language tutor was mean to him, and then mean to his sister and made her cry, so he not only dismissed him but made sure he could never work again. So I thought this was going in the direction of “I know what he did was wrong but I went overboard and maybe ruined his life and he might have a family”
instead it was “Even now I still really hate him, and that’s my problem.”
There was also a point at the end… nothing wrong with it or anything but I always anticipate the part where she’s rocking in the chair… this time I noticed there was never a point where she went to sit down in it. She’s just suddenly rocking in this chair. It came out of no where
