I have a confession to make. I want to be a princess. But seriously, what girl doesn’t? I want to be beautiful, magical, wear sparkling gowns and crowns, and ride into the sunset with a handsome prince. I think it’s pretty much every girl’s fantasy at least one time or another. At least every girl who loves Disney movies, beauty pageants, and winter balls.
I’ve tried to figure out how I can achieve this coveted role. So far I’ve been unsuccessful. I sent a love letter to Prince William, but apparently he’s happily married. I checked Craigslist, but I didn’t see any openings. I even asked my boss if I could wear sparkling pink dresses and tiaras to work, but he said no.
My other problem is that I also want to be magical. I want to be a mermaid, or a fairy, or some kind of enchanted being that possesses powers that allure men like James Franco. Always looking perfect, even while I’m saving princes and slaying dragons, would also be quite convenient. Villages and kingdoms would love me. My face would be on national currency.
I guess what I really want is physically impossible, a reality that exists only in my own mind. The best way for me to find this enchantment is to read. I want to read anything and everything, to jump down the rabbit hole and see where it takes me. I want adventures filled with magic, dreams, and everything wonderful. A journey I’d like to share with my fellow travelers to the land of happily ever after. Join me on that journey through Young Adult Gloss!
