American Royals (ARC) (Spoilers)

What if instead of a president, America had a monarchy? And not just a monarchy….the first female ruler? American Royals explores that thought and then some! Below I’ll discuss sass and trash, as well as leave a general spoiler free review.

Sass:

I love that the whole story was told from (various) female perspectives. Beatrice, Samantha, Nina, and Daphne. I really enjoyed seeing how they all viewed the Crown through their different life-lenses.

The arguments felt real. These are teenage kids dealing with adult problems. They think with their hearts not their heads. I was glad to see that Miss McGee was able to capture that.

Trash:

I wish there would have been a bit more depth to Daphne’s character. She’s the bad guy…but why?

Also, let’s explore Daphne & Ethan’s weird flirtationship.

Alsoalso…we didn’t see much of the history of America; how it came to be a monarchy. Maybe it’s just the history nerd in me but I wanna knooooow….

Overall:

I throughly enjoyed this book! I am a big history fan, and there was mention of a few of my favorite people: Louis XIV, and Henry VIII….I rather enjoyed this one.

If you’re a fan of the royalty aspect of the Selection series, a good love triangle, and/or a manipulative ex, grab a copy at your nearest bookseller! I think this book is set up for at least one sequel because I have so. many. unanswered. questions!




Extreme grateful thanks to RHCB, Miss Emily Bamford, and Katharine McGee for this electronic early copy of American Royals! I enjoyed this book so much and can’t wait to have a finished copy in my hands soon! American Royals releases September 9th from Random House Children’s Books. Katharine McGee is the author of The Thousandth Floor trilogy.

  1. I am starting to lump all of these books with this style of illustrated cover into the same category now, and hold expectations high for them all. Other examples of course Red, White and Royal Blue, Fix Her Up, Meet Cute, etc. This book sounds good and like it has some cool elements to it. I definitely want to give it a try in the near future!
