Royals (Royals #1) Reviews
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
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
Magic school, paranormal, princess story… Rachel Hawkins will write about anything and everything that comes to her mind and I love that about her.
Princess stories are my thing. I don’t care if they are unrealistic, as long as they make me want to become the heroine of the book and live this fantasy myself.
And boy do I want to be in Daisy’s shoes right now. It’s not as though she is on her way to become a princess (her sister is, sort of), but spending the summer at a castle with ple ...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
Super fast and light. A great summer read or something by the pool side to get your mind off things and just enjoy the day.
Everything was solid, though not a ton of depth to make you stop and gasp. It was hilarious and if your a fan of Scotland but know absolutely anything about the UK you’ll love it.
If you are are acquainted with the Uk you might be completely put off by the cultural rewrite?!?! Like def not accurate And that can be super off putting. Other than that. Light fluffly and fun!
What a fun read! It had me laughing. The MC, Daisy, is so funny. I adored her dad and her bestie. Just a really fun, light hearted read.
I wanted silly fun, and was rewarded with silly fun. Warning: you will not enjoy this book unless you fully give yourself up to the silly fun of it all, ignore the selfishness of the MC, and ignore the ridiculousness of a 'Scottish monarchy'.
The last 100 pages really stood out for me, and it took until there, I think, to really get into the groove. The opening is pretty episodic, and the writing can be repetitive, but the end? Oh! There's finally tension and conflict and a fake dating plot and i ...more
It's sort of ridiculous how enamoured I am with this book but BOY AM I IN LOVE WITH IT. there's like one scene I absolutely hated which I'll write about in my review that none of y'all will see until like March of 2018 or some shit, but yeah. Hence the 4 stars.
But this was so cute! So fun! I love Royal romances man.
