Genre: Chick Lit / Fiction / Romance
Synopis per Goodreads: American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy-tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess. But it’s adventure-seeking Bex who goes to Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall – and thus Bex who accidentally finds herself in love with the eventual heir to the British throne. Nick is everything she could have imagined, but Prince Nicholas has unimaginable baggage: grasping friends, a thorny family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a native. On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex reflects on what she’s sacrificed for love — and exactly whose heart she may yet have to break.
Review: In light of recent news that Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (The Fug Girls 💕 ) are writing a squeal and in lieu of the fact that this has been on my To-Read list since 2015 (oh the shame!), I finally began to read The Royal We.
The synopsis makes it seem as if It is as soapy as General Hospital or The Young and The Restless (I mean that in the best way) and within all that drama is a modern day fairy tale between a common American Girl and a Royal Prince….it’s 100% Prince William and Kate fanfic (except for the whole American detail change).
And you know what? I did not finish. I got 28% into the novel and I was so bored. So, so bored. As a reader, I try to read any novel in it’s entirety; however, it….it just became a task to pick up this novel….Just thinking about it made me miserable. So I gave up (Go ahead: Shame me! Judge me! But know this is not normal).
I had hopes for this one. I’m pretty bummed.
Recommendation: One cannot recommend if one DNF.
