My all-time favourite scene in the movie ❤️🤍👑💙. I feel a re-read on the horizon! Alex knows Henry toys with his signet ring when he's anxious, so he extends his own hand with the ring to calm his nerves... so sweet!

This was cute. I wish I liked it more. I wasn't a fan of the narrator.

The.Great.Catsby I also didn't really love the book. But the movie was pretty good! 2d

Looks like October was not my strongest reading month. Red, White & Royal Blue was a totally fine and enjoyable gay romance, but probably wouldn‘t make a unified list of my best books of 2023.

I had the pleasure of reading 42 books in 2023, but these three became my absolute favourites! Red, White & Royal Blue stole first place due to the fact that both the book and the film have brought a little light to quite a few dark days ❤️🤍💙. Closely followed, of course, by the twisty labyrinth that is Killing Jericho and the absolute gem, They Both Die at The End! Reading goal met. Now bring on 2024 and the legions of books to come! 🎉

bookandbedandtea I haven't read Killing Jericho but loved the other two. Happy New Year! 2mo
CoffeeNBooks They Both Die at the End is such a good book! 2mo
TheIntrovertedDodoBird @bookandbedandtea Happy New Year! 🎉 Aren't they just amazing stories?! I'm glad someone else loved them as much as me! 2mo
TheIntrovertedDodoBird @CoffeeNBooks Right?! And the prequel is amazing, too! I'm literally counting down the days for the sequel! 2mo

Red, White & Royal Blue is the gayest, most uproarious, banter-filled, big fat ray of sunshine that totally warranted a re-read mere weeks after languishing away from the worst book hangover EVER. If I could cannonball my way into these pages - into this slightly kinder, empathetic, unapologetically liberal alternate reality - I would do so without hesitation, especially with my favourite ensemble of characters to date. Queue book hangover 2.0! 🩷

Booksblanketsandahotbeverage I recommend Alexis Hall if you need to get over your book hangover.. Boyfriend Material had good banter too ❤️ 3mo
willaful Right there with you! Another I recommend is The Charm Offensive. They're both in the “big queer party“ subgenre. 😁 3mo
TheIntrovertedDodoBird @Booksblanketsandahotbeverage Ooh, I've had my eye on Hall's Boyfriend Material (and the sequel Husband Material, obviously) for ages! Just why do the Kindle editions have to be so damn pricey?! 😭 I Googled books to read after RWRB, and these came up, and now I'm chaotically waiting for them to lower in price. The wait is agonizing! I need to cure this book hangover with more epic banter! Thank you for the recommendation ❤️🤍💙. 3mo

I really wanted to like this one, but Alex is such a jerk that I just couldn‘t. It made no sense to me at all how hostile he was and he‘s the sort of entitled brat child that I simply loathe. Had to bail before I threw my poor kindle.

I found the ending of this really moving, but parts of this felt very odd to me like fetishisation of the monarchy at the same time as hot royal characters listing the monarchy‘s historical atrocities just made me feel like the author found royals hot but wanted to detail all the asterisks of why they weren‘t allowed to find them hot…? The plot arrived really suddenly right at the end and a lot of the British bits rung kind of oddly

How did I forget how amazing this book is?! Bea is WAY better in the book, and the movie has no June at all.

I‘m still entirely in love with them movie and watch it daily, but the book is its own amazing, wonderful, beautiful thing.

bookandbedandtea I feel the same way... the movie is good, and I'll be watching it again!, but the book is amazing! 💜 5mo
GingerAntics @bookandbedandtea I have watched the movie at least once every day since I first saw it. I love it, but the book is just even better! 5mo
bookandbedandtea @GingerAntics The book (as is typical) is just so much richer with detail. I LOVE the whole Richards outing them/ Raf going rogue- in fact every single thing about Raf- story so I was really bummed the movie didn't have time to cover all that. Plus, as you mentioned, no June and a watered down Bea.🤷‍♀️ Now I'm sounding like I don't like the movie. I do! I just wish it could have been a 6 episode miniseries. 😉 5mo

GingerAntics @bookandbedandtea oh my god Bea is like a dits in the movie. I love her from the book, but there are times I just roll my eyes at her in the movie. “I‘ve broke up with my bf so he won‘t get a broken heart too, my mother doesn‘t give a crap and hasn‘t even been cast for this movie, and I feel like I‘m gong to be alone forever because I walked away to keep grandpa happy.” “At least you won‘t be King!” 🤦🏼‍♀️ (edited) 5mo
GingerAntics @bookandbedandtea I don‘t know who wrote that line, but she looked vaguely uncomfortable saying it (which leads me to believe she was VERY uncomfortable saying it), and that writer should have been fired on the spot! (edited) 5mo
bookandbedandtea @GingerAntics That scene makes me cringe! It doesn't make sense, it's out of character for (book) Bea, and I agree that the actress was cringing too. 5mo
GingerAntics @bookandbedandtea exactly! I can just imagine this poor actress reading this for the first time. “Really? You want me to say this? Are you sure? So, like my character doesn‘t really give a crap about her brother, his feelings, or his current emotional state? Well, alright then. As long as I know where my character is coming from in this case. 🥃” 5mo

Okay, can I just say, I‘ve already watched this movie twice in less than 12 hours! This is my new favourite movie. I am so in love with these characters all over again. My next book is going to be a re-read of this one. Oh my god where has this movie been all my life?! I need two things from the beautiful people who created this magic: 1. the 3 hour original cut, 2. a sequel with all the same actors, obviously.

TheIntrovertedDodoBird @GingerAntics I literally can't stop watching this film! 🩷👑 We neeeeeeeed a sequel 👑🩷. 5mo
GingerAntics @TheIntrovertedDodoBird I watched it for the first time 2 weeks ago. I saw it 4 times in the first 24 hours, and I‘ve watched it every day since. 5mo
TheIntrovertedDodoBird @GingerAntics I'm so glad I'm not the only one obsessively watching it! I'm juggling the novel and the film simultaneously at the minute 🩷👑. I'm dying to get my hands on the extra chapter in the collectors edition! Have you read it? 👑🩷. 5mo

First off, how is this film adaption so freakin' perfect? It remained so incredibly true to the novel, I'm obsessed 🩷. All the feels wrapped up in an excellent cast (Henry was utter perfection, and Alex grew on me once his character softened), and it was all laughs and pride and sappy love every step of the way!! I'm not usually a fan of romantic films (books are a different matter entirely - I love them). I'm literally begging for a sequel 🩷👑.

I never posted my wrap up for #20in4. I finished 2 of the 3 I was planning on reading. Not too bad! Also I‘m counting the tagged book for the July #TBRTarot prompt for a book with the word “and” in the title. Ampersand is close enough I think 😂

I had a delightful reading hangover from the tagged book. Dangerous read, especially if you are queer and in Texas 😍 🇺🇸 🇬🇧

What started off as an indulgent romantic read with a guaranteed happily ever after became something far more outrageously funny, sentimental, and surprisingly political than I ever imagined. With characters that jump off the page and light up the room and a glimpse into a somewhat nicer, more accepting world, to say I loved this book would be a massive understatement. Light and fluffy with undertones of angst, this love story is unforgettable 🩷.
