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.
