The time it was about Royals

Posted May 3, 2018 by Stacee in Blog Tours | 4 Comments

I have loved all of the books from Rachel Hawkins and I knew that Royals wouldn’t be any different.  So, of course when the opportunity came to share my reasons for loving it, I couldn’t sign up fast enough.

Before I share those reasons, let’s check out the book.

Title: Royals
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Pages: 256
Publisher: GP Putnam’s Sons
Pub Date: May 1, 2018
Find it: PRH | Indiebound | B&N | Amazon | Goodreads

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 to 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.

Sounds good, right?

top 5 reasons to read royals by rachel hawkins

  • the snark — rachel writes some of the best snark out there and there was plenty to go around
  • royal family fun — with all of the excitement floating around due to the actual upcoming royal wedding, this was a perfect time for this book to come out
  • the snark — it’s so good, it’s worth mentioning twice
  • it’s funny — i don’t actually laugh out loud at books very often, but this one had me giggling like a little girl.  see below for an example.

“This is also exciting. Surely the most exciting thing that’s happened in our family.”

“I beg your pardon. I was once shot out of a cannon filled with glitter at Wembley.”  — page 23 of the arc

  • it’s rachel — for me, that’s basically a no brainer.  i’ll read anything she puts out and I always enjoy myself.

    I need this book right now–I love snarkiness and if a book can make me laugh, I want to read it. Everyone needs more reasons to smile and laugh in life. Yes, mentioning snark twice is an awesome thing for a book.
