Royals (Royals #1) Reviews
THIS REVIEW FOR ROYALS BY RACHEL HAWKINS WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED HERE
I am trash for a royalty story, especially with the Royal Wedding approaching (when this review is posted the wedding will have already happened). I am an absolute nut about royalty, I don’t know why. Well, I do, but it’s literally just because my family has raised me this way. So, when I saw this book called Royals floating around on Goodreads I knew I had to pick it up. I’m so glad I did as well, this was one of the funniest an ...more
the history buff in me just sighed so loud at "the crown prince of Scotland"
but fuck it lmao give me some princes and let me binge this shit
I honestly loved this book. It was a quick, easy read and that's all I was looking for. Granted, some things made me scratch my head, like the healthcare bit. You could tell it was written by an American. I'm Canadian, and it baffles me every day how much people have to pay for things in the States. I was looking up the other day how much it costs to give birth in Ontario, and from everything I've read and the people I've talked to, your biggest expense is paying for parking. Not tens of thousan ...more
At long last, we have an heir to the Princess Diaries throne! Rachel Hawkins (whose Twitter feed, might I add, is sheer delight) has given us a modern day story about the ups and downs of being a teen . . . and what happens when those ups and downs clash with royal protocol! I shan't say any more, but if you love the Princess Diaries and/or are obsessed with the British royals (check and check for me!), this is your book.
This was so much adorably fluffy goodness. And of course there is excellent humor and flirty banter as you would expect from a Rachel Hawkins book. We follow Daisy Winters as her life changes thanks to her sister, Ellie’s royal engagement to Prince Alex. I really liked Daisy, she’s hilarious and doesn’t really have a filter. Which makes for a lot of entertainment in a buttoned-up environment. I loved meeting all the royal family members and the hijinks that Seb and his friends get into. ...more
I was so looking forward to this read because Hawkins' voice via her lady protagonists is totally my jam and her books are always a good time.. and in the end ROYALS was everything I wanted it to be.
Aren't royals supposed to be all closed off and dead inside? Isn't emotion embarrassingly common? Why do I now have to join a three-way hug with my sister and her fiancé?
A different take on the royalty trope, we have Daisy who is younger sister to Ellie, a girl who is set to marry her Scottish princ ...more
If you are having 'Royal Withdrawal' after the most recent Royal Wedding, look no further, this book is just what the doctor has ordered as a cure.
I really, really, really enjoyed this novel. It was cute, it was funny, it was sarcastic, and it was equal parts relatable and not relatable. I honestly sped through these pages and could. not. get. enough. Seriously, I wanted the sequel in my hot little hands like...yesterday. Ms. Hawkins, in the nicest way possible, chop to it.
There was a lot of hy ...more
Sometimes you need a good fluffy contemporary to balance out the heavier books you read, and Royals by Rachel Hawkins fits that bill perfectly. It also comes at the perfect time just before Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle in May 2018.
The book draws definitely inspiration from Prince William and Prince Harry. In the book, Daisy's sister met the prince at university just like Will and Kate and her sister is an American just like Meghan. But in this book, the royals are the fictionalized royals ...more
