Day 2 – March Slice of Life


Today is Day 2 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
I am using Encyclopedia of Me; My Life from A to Z, a guided journal created by Amy Krause Rosenthal.

B is for Bride (Princess Bride that is!)
While my children were growing up, we watched “Princess Bride” numerous times. So many lines became favourites – “As you wish”, “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”. “Inconceivable”
It is still one of my all-time favourite movies.

As part of a reading challenge this year, I was to read two books with the same title. When I borrowed As You Wish by Jude Devereaux from the library, I knew I had my 2 books as I already had As You Wish by Cary Elwes, one that has been on my TBR shelf for a while.

For a second challenge, Connect 5, I knew these two books would be the start of 5 books that connect with Princess Bride.
The next book I read was the original, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, a book I had never read. What an amazing, imaginative book. Loved it, laughed through it, just simply enjoyed it.

Last night we watched the movie – and once again I was enthralled. My husband had never seen it – and he was drawn into its magic.

I’ve finally started reading As You Wish and am enjoying this behind the scenes look at the making of the movie. A great read so far.

  1. When I saw Princess Bride in your title, I had to read your post. One of my favorite movies, too! Just thinking about it makes me want to set up a pile of blankets in the family room and watch it with the family this evening. Love the idea of an Encyclopedia of Me. (I’m always a fan of a good alphabet book!) Loved reading your Slice. 🙂

  2. This is a movie I, too, need to watch again. But the book is always better than the movie! Thanks for taking us through so many good literary connections. Books I, too, want to read.
