*spoilers, but only in this post*
Having trouble with the book I’m currently reading. The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima. I’ve put the book down (probably only for like 4 hours w.e.). It’s just… Raisa is smart and strategic, sure she’s passionate, and maybe it was easy to push off her other suitors because she didn’t actually love them, but she just accepted Han so giddily? I guess there’s the old excuse, ‘but they’re young and in love.’ Maybe I’m not entirely angry because it’s somewhat believable. I just thought she’d be more careful, that maybe she’d try to resist his proposal. I also thought she’d dig more into his more general phrases, helping him reveal bits he wasn’t used to sharing (though I guess that might not be in character for her anyway). idk… I’m just disappointed in her. I have yet to decide if I’m disappointed in Chima’s writing of this part of the story, but as a person who looks up to Raisa and wants her to be smart and protect herself, I’m just disappointed. It’s like they’re fulfilling prophecy but some of it feels a bit forced. I’m sure it made sense in the writer’s mind, and it probably makes sense in many reader’s as well. I guess it’s more of a matter of personal opinion. I’ve no idea what I’d do if I were Raisa.
