Royals by Rachel Hawkins

royalsThis was an interesting take on the princess story that is found in YA stories. The main character, Daisy, has a ‘perfect’ sister who is engaged to marry the Crown prince of Scotland. And as is with these stories, misunderstandings, misadventures and chaos ensue.

I enjoyed the read. I think the twist of it being from Daisy’s point of view allowed the story to have some depth. The issues around having a family member marrying into a royal family and how does it affect what you do, say and the colour of your hair. It’s one thing when you choose that path, but how do you handle that when you are just trying to figure out your place in the world and end up having the prying eyes of the press on you.

This was a fun read. If you are looking something light and you have fallen under the spell of all the royal wedding (and baby!) fuss of late, this is the book for you.

I gave it a 3/5 star rating on Goodreads.

Full disclosure: I received this eARC from First to Read for a fair and honest review. Thanks to First to Read and Penguin Random House!
