Today my bookish item is all about Royal Books. If you don’t live in The Netherlands, you won’t know that it’s a royal day for us. It’s our King’s birthday and King’s Day. There are a lot of parties and music celebrations! We normally recommend books on our Wishlist Wednesday, but decided to make an exception for this holiday. Take a look!
This is a book that has been on my radar for awhile now and I don’t really know why I haven’t picked it up yet. I can imagine when you’re seventeen the choice of either getting married or joining the military isn’t an easy one. I am curious to see how this turns out.
Yet again another trilogy I have heard lots about, but have never picked up, haha. While Kasta seems like a hard person without much emotion other than maybe anger? It must be surprising that she then starts falling in love. The way this book is described it sounds like she can turn out to be a really strong character. Not to mention the covers are beautiful.
I have seen the movies and loved them and it was only recently that I figured out there were also movies, haha. That being said, I think these are book to read while on vacation. I don’t expect a lot out of them. Just a fast and fun read and there’s nothing wrong with that.
This is a royal story under the sea. I am a big fan of mermaids, so it’s already winning there. Yet again, this is another trilogy I have heard so much about, but am late to the game. There is the death of parents and war. This is done in a lot of book, so I am hoping they know how to keep it original.
What do you do when it turns out your school isn’t what you thought it was? And your friend gets put in a foreign prison? Not something a typical teenager experiences. On top of saving the world, you find your one true love as well. Sounds really interesting. I had never heard of it before searching for more royal books.
A plague hitting a kingdom and a girl who could save them sounds pretty interesting. I love it when two people come face to face and find something in someone that they never expected. A few friends have read this book and were positive about it, so I had to add it to my wishlist.
I love Stephanie Perkins and Jennifer E. Smith, so I think I will love this one. Not many royal books are contemporary, so it was nice to see another one like this. Sisters falling for the same guy, who just happens to be a prince is something that will end in hilarious moments. Romantic comedies are a favorite of mine, so I think this one needs to be on top of my list.
This book came out at the end of the year and was talked about a lot. Besides an amazing cover it has elves. This is a diverse fantasy and sounds like an original story. Books were characters find out they have hidden gifts are always really interesting. I have a feeling I will be bumping this one up on my wishlist. I almost forgot about it, but I have a feeling I don’t want to miss this one.
That’s it for the royal books today. We need to save some for future posts. Have any of you read any of these? Or did we miss any you think we need to read? Just let us know!
