Synopsis

For as long as she could read, Elianna Bernstein—more commonly known as the "Bibliophile Princess"—has preferred the company of books to that of people. However, as a noble, it is her duty to find a suitor. Fortunately for her, Crown Prince Christopher Selkirk Asherald proposes a deal: he will protect her free time, and, in exchange, Elianna will be his fiancée in name only.

The years they spend together are bliss, as Elianna learns to open herself to others. But all good things must come to an end. For Elianna, who loves books more than people, ending their fake relationship should be no big deal. But as Christopher grows close with another girl, Elianna begins to realize that she is not as indifferent to him as she once thought.

But all that went to nothing when the first arc ended. Now the manga has no direction and the characters behave weirdly and inadequate when considered the way they were ...

Preliminary (Unknown/? chp)
TLDR: Very enjoyable first chapters that made me wanna read more but once I reached the second volume, I found myself skipping through most of the pages. Romance feels very forced and unnatural. Also very political which might be interesting for some people. Sadly, I only enjoyed one or two characters of the main cast. Art is very beautiful and typical for a shoujo manga.

Plot:
The plot was a bit too messy for me. Maybe because I went in expecting something a bit more... tragedy-like. At least that's what the text on the back of my volumes hinted at, so perhaps that's why I'm ...
