My fair concubine – Reading journal

My book for Dear reading is called “My fair concubine”, which is written by Jeannie Lin. I have only read one long chapter but I am enjoying this book so far.

At first I didn’t really get what was happening in the chapter but then as I kept reading I started to get what was going on. The first chapter mostly was about how the two protagonists met each other. There are lots of dialogues in the book too, and by the dialogue I could tell that the man(Fei long one of the protagonists) didn’t treat the tea girl very well. But I think that later in the book they will have adventures and troubles and will get closer to each other and become friends.

On the blurb it says that he has to train the tea girl into a princess in to months to deliver to the emperor, by this I am assuming that at first he is just going to use this tea girl to solve his problems but then towards the middle of the book I think they will have feelings for each other. Fei long then will have more problems and troubles for wanting to take the tea girl for his own. I think that my thoughts will happen because in lots of films and plays I have seen and lots of other books similar things like two people not liking each other but then get feelings for each other happen, so I think this will be a connection to some other books I have read.
