PEP TALK TO SELF:
Just stick it out. The action will come soon. Once all this political world building is done and you finally remember who is who and who hated who this has the potential be everything you love in a sappy romance fantasy novel. Slap a smile on your face and grin and bear it. (Every time I use the words grin and bear it...I think grin and bare it instead. Lol I think of sitting naked and smiling while I complete a dreaded task.)
I know the action picks up soon, I snuck a peak at the next book in series, hopefully the magic and fantasy elements become more prevalent soon, I am bored. Shit needs to happen soon, like now! I am so impatient.
