It’s King’s Day! Here are 5 books about royals
👑 Happy King’s Day! 👑
King’s Day is a Dutch holiday, where we celebrate the birthday of the King. Usually this means there are markets around the country, games for kids, parties for the adults. There’s a lot of alcohol, pastries and a whole lot of ORANGE 🧡
Of course, this year is a little different. Every party is cancelled and we’re supposed to celebrate from home. But we still wear orange and have the flag out.
In honor of this day, I made a list of books about royals, royalties and all princes and princesses.
1. American Royals by Katherine McGee
First book that comes to mind is American Royals! I recently bought this one and I can’t wait to read it! What if America had a royal family? In this book it has, and there’s a lot of drama between the heir, the spare and the twin of the spare. Sounds so good!
2. Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
Another shoo-in, as it was a big hype last year. I still haven’t read it, but just like American Royals, it sounds so good. Full of drama, since the president’s son from America and the Prince of England have beef with each other. For political reason, they have to fake a friendship and I have a feeling that fake relationship turns into something more…
3. Royals by Rachel Hawking
I guess the title explains why this book made the list. It’s about a sixteen year old, whose sister is dating/engaged? to the crown prince of Scotland. The girl, Daisy, has to learn the regal ropes and some guy helps her with it. Add in the younger brother of the prince and I’m guessing there will be lots of drama, but also some very funny moments.
4. Bringing Down The Duke by Evie Dunmore
No princes or kings in this one, but a duke looking for a duchess! Annabelle is looking for someone with influence to help the women’s suffrage cause and she has her eyes set on Sebastian, a duke. Sebastian doesn’t want anything to do with the cause, but they both can’t deny their attraction to each other. It sounds juicy.
5. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
I think we all know this one. I haven’t read the books (and I found out there are about 12 of them? Maybe more?), but I have seen the movies. It’s such a classic that I couldn’t leave it out of this list. I do want to point out that it seems that the books are quite different from the movies (aren’t they always?), but the storyline of unpopular girl becomes a princess is still there.
Have you read any of these books? Which one do you recommend most?
