Seriously??? Cliffhanger ending! Cherry Tarts as part of the fairy tale of an American Royal Family of Washington. Witty. Finding inspiration in Britain changing the Rules of Succession so Royal Daughters aren't skipped over and using that in Alternate Realty Fiction of a future American Queen. Brilliant. But then instead of wrapping up the story, what few threads we had tied up, we undid and ended with nothing being settled. 🤦‍♀️

Crinoline_Laphroaig ^I don't know whether this is bad story telling or just greed to sell more books. The thing is if it had ended this story without so many cliffhangers, I would been excited to read a sequel. Let the characters and the stories grow and develop. There was great potential for that. Instead having looked at description of 2nd book, we made it in to a bad soap opera series. One that I doubt I will bother reading. 13h

Rating: 4/5 Stars
A fast, engaging, fun read about a world built with a caste system where there is a lot of people who do not have names-Nameless. With the King on his deathbed, he says his heir, who is impossibly Nameless and has no rights. What will she do?
Pick it up-you won‘t regret it!

Wanted something light as I spent the weekend in bed feeling poorly. Sue Townsend is always good for a laugh and this one didn‘t disappoint.

Eyelit Hope you‘re feeling better soon! 5d

No!!!! I don‘t want to wait until Fall 2020 to find out what is going to happen with Princess Beatrice, Princess Samantha, Prince Jefferson and Nina. What if when America won the Revolutionary War they became a monarchy instead. I loved everything about this book. The pages just flew by and I didn‘t want the book to end. Now I need to check out the authors other books!

A gorgeously illustrated, entertaining alternate history inspired by the early years of Queen Elizabeth the First‘s reign, this book is perfect for fans of historical fiction. Easy to see why it‘s appearing on so many “best of” lists. Love the format—which includes sections of traditional text and sections of traditional comics/ graphic novels panels—and the strong narrative. A fun read and good addition to the library.

What is America was a monarchy? This book imagines the Royal Family that could of been, The Washingtons.

This was trashy, tabloid-y, ridiculous and completely addicting. I can not wait to read book two and find out what happens with Princess Beatrice, Princess Samantha and Prince Jeff.

Just in to the library is a graphic novel that NPR has named one of their favorite comics/graphic novels of the year. It‘s an alternate history inspired by the early years of Queen Elizabeth the First (according to the dust jacket). Looking forward to a good read.

I would‘ve enjoyed this more if a) it had been a fully adult novel with all the salaciousness that could‘ve come with that and b) if I had known it was going to end so abruptly! I was unaware there was a sequel coming and was completely taken aback that after 400 pages there was no real closure. Soapy and fun for some but didn‘t land quite right for me 🤷‍♀️

Crinoline_Laphroaig Seriously that many pages and nothing settled at the end. 13h
