I had so much fun reading this. Royals is a light-hearted, funny, easy read that’s sure to entertain. I finished it rather quickly, and couldn’t help but wish the book had been longer. I don’t say this often, but this would make such a cute movie!
I connected with Daisy from the start, and loved her sassy, headstrong personality. I also found myself a bit jealous of her situation: I mean, who wouldn’t want to be surrounded by a group of young, attractive, amusing members of the Scottish aristocracy…le sigh. Daisy is apparently also a much better person than I am, because if my sister (and parents) acted that selfish and inconsiderate towards me, I would not be on speaking terms with them. I was glad that there was bit of a reconciling moment between Daisy and Ellie at the end, but it still didn’t lessen my loathing towards her sister. I really loved the interactions and banter between Miles and Daisy! We all knew what was going to happen by the end, but nevertheless, I still enjoyed watching it all unfold. If you like light, fun, entertaining reads then Royals is a book for you!
