Royals | Rachel Hawkins
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins serves up a deliciously royal romance, perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Huntley Fitzpatrick. Meet Daisy Winters. She's an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who's nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond. While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince's roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown--and the intriguing Miles--might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself. New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings her signature humor, love of Americana, and flair for romance to this page-turning Princess Diaries turned-upside-down story.

This is tropey and kind of fun and cute. Not as fun and cute as I hoped. I guess the whole royalty and famous-people-behaving-badly trope isn‘t really my thing.

And honestly, I mostly wanted to read this book so I could get to the sequel, which is gaaayyyyy 😆 so bring it on!

“Sure you want to sit in the car?”
“Yes” (taking out my book)
“It might take awhile.”
“I know” (waving my book)
“You‘re sure?”
“YES” (shaking my book more vigorously)
He just doesn‘t get it! 🙄😂😂😂 I love the uninterrupted reading time!

This was a cute book. It has a lot of things that I look for when reading romance. Fake dating, hating the person and then falling for them. Daisy had so much sass! On to the next book in the series. This was my 1st completed book in the #24b4monday readathon!

My tbr for the reading rush. It is quite ambitious and I am also quite positive only like three of these will get read this week. But, a girl can dream, right?! 😂

I have been wanting to read these two books for a while. So I took advantage of Amazon Prime day of 5 off 15 dollars. I also had a $15 dollar gift card so I got both books for under $2!

If you're looking for a quick, light, fluffy book- check this one out. It's about an American girl whose sister is engaged to the Scottish prince. It's a little soap opera-y, with some romance, and a lot of eye rolling (rich people problems). Certainly not a deep, meaningful book, but it was something easy to listen to at work.

I loved Royals! Daisy is a control-her-own-life girl stuck in a do-things-our-way situation and she doesn‘t handle it well. I loved how much she grew throughout the book, especially in terms of her relationship with her sister. I also really liked that Daisy stays true to herself. She realizes that she needs to do things for her sister, but she never loses herself in the process!

Sometimes I just need a book for pure escapism and entertainment. Royals fit that bill nicely with a hilarious main character and a funny, interesting supporting cast. I laughed out loud at several points. It‘s not going to win any literary awards, but it sure is fun!

“A little moment of understanding that feels weirdly nice, given that it comes from a guy who I‘m not entirely convinced isn‘t a tea cozy cursed by a witch to live as a real-life boy.”

So I liked this book but I didn‘t love it. It‘s a classic teen romance book. I did like the way it was written and I honestly thought it was a good book if not a little predictable. Nice easy read.

So good! It‘s an easy read.

Daisy is fun and sarcastic and loves to cause trouble. She must spend the summer in Scotland under the watchful eye of the Royal family. You meet a few other characters along the way. Royals is out May 1st!

If you‘re looking for a fresh YA romance, this is not the book for you. Meanwhile, if you‘re like me and just want a lighthearted read though a fairly predictable ending – Royals will not disappoint.
