TBR Tour #3 | Royals

TBR Tour is a weekly meme created by Deanna @ The Comfy Reader. TBR Tour will be posted every Friday with a different theme or genreย ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ˜Š

Hello friends! How is everyone doing? How is August treating you so far?

I can tell you right now that August is making me feel tired haha. I don’t know what it is lately but I feel tired and overall just unmotivated. I am trying to get back on a schedule for posting on here though and I am feeling confident that having a set schedule will help!

So, I missed a few TBR Tours but FEAR NOT, I have planned some good ones for the remainder of August and I am going to give you all the themes so if you want to join in you can!! โค

Just a reminder about what TBR Tour is – a fun meme that showcases some of the books currently on my never ending TBR that focuses on a theme or genre!

For this TBR Tour the theme is: Royals! To me this means any books about royal families, royal people, or royal life in any way!

American Royals by Katharine McGee


I have loved the idea of this book from the second I found out about it!! What if America had a royal family?? This is such a fun idea to me and I honestly love anything royal so I’m on board!!

General George Washington is given a crown for winning the Revolutionary War and centuries later… America is still royal! It follows Beatrice who is close to becoming Americas first Queen.

I’m sure others can relate but I have always thought being a Princess would be an amazing life haha so this idea of America having Princesses and Queens and whatnot, just makes me happy! ALSO there is a second book!!!

Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

I will start off by saying this cover is amazing and that is 100% the reason I was initially interested in this book!! Then I started hearing others say it was great and I actually read the synopsis and I was like YUP I need that!

What does this book offer you ask?

Well, in this book there is a fake friendship leading to potential love. BUT not just any fake friendship!! The First son of the American President and Prince Henry!!! They must prove that the relationship between America and England is strong and how do they do this? By showing both these guys are best buds. However, they then start to fall for each other and well if that isn’t awesome, I don’t know what is!

Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins


So, I recently read The Royal We and The Heir Affair. I LOVED THEM. This makes me think of those books in a way and honestly if I even have the smallest feeling they may be similar I will read it. Hand down, no questions asked. I haven’t seen this one around like really at all… but it sounds so up my ally. I cannot wait to read it!

Daisy is 16 and lives in Florida. Her older sister is engaged to a Prince from Scotland. Daisy ends up having to join her sister in the castle and she just does not fit in and has no desire to. Miles is appointed to make Daisy regal but there are roadblocks and Daisy is not making it easy!!

This sounds so fun and entertaining! I am so the opposite and would be down to be royal haha (I say this now but honestly who knows haha).

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

So this isn’t technically royal. BUT it is old England and the main characters name is “Monty” so I mean, I think we can still count this. Plus, Monty’s family is very high class and the book follows him through his Grand Tour of Europe where he gets himself into all sorts of trouble and adventure! ALSO – If this cover does not scream fancy important men then I don’t know what does and royalty was all about fancy important men (and still is)!

This has been on the TBR for a super long time and I know there are 2 other books in this series so I really should get on it! This is also historical fiction which I LOVE!

So that is all folks! Do you enjoy royals? Have you read any of these? I really need to read them but when will that happen? Who knows! Haha. Tell me your royal TBR books!

Here are the other topics for the remainder of August! Feel free to join in and tag me if you do!!

Recent Reads | Royals, Second Chances, and Other Thoughts

Hey everyone! I hope you are all well and have been doing some fabulous reading lately!! I have been somewhat struggling with my reading but I’m hoping that July will bring more motivation for me!

If you saw my monthly wrap up for June you would know I did okay with my reading. Not amazing, but honestly pretty average for me! How many books do you read in a month?

So like last time, I am going to do a little update about what I’ve been reading lately. Lets start with what I have recently finished!

I just finished The Heir Affair a couple days ago!

I absolutely loved this book. I will post a review for it soon but for now let me just tell you that this book did not disappoint! The drama was wild and just as good as the first book (The Royal We)! I received this book for a Goodreads giveaway!

I hadn’t read The Royal We before and then when I realized The Heir Affair was actually the 2nd book I was like oops better read the first one LOL. I quickly bought The Royal We on my Kobo and read it within I think 2 days. I was amazed how long The Royal We was… like it was a BIG ONE YOU GUYS!! Anyways, it was so fab that I plowed through out regardless of size. I pretty much immediately picked up The Heir Affair (also quite large) and read that one within the week.

I think these 2 books were really interesting in the sense that you get a snap shot into what it might be like being royal with today’s media! A lot of the drama is media drama and just how people make up these headlines about them or twist the truths. Also how the public can be SO MEAN and rip these people apart when they don’t even know them?!?!? I know this is a fictional book but it does make you think what it must really be like!

If you like the royals, specifically Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, then you will love these 2 books! I don’t know if they will write another one but I hope they do lol.

I also recently finished The Second Chance Hotel by Rachel Dove

Again, I will have a review for this one soon but just a little overview of it… a woman divorces her husband and decides to get a fresh start. She packs everything she owns into her car and drives off to a hotel she used to visit as a child. Little plot twist here… she actually BUYS the hotel and spruces it up to get it up and running again. She of course makes new friends and meets a guy… wonder what happens there?? Lol.

This was a predicable story but cute! It was also short so definitely a good one if you want a fast read that will make you smile!

My current reads… this is a little up in the air right now lol. I have started a Netgalley book – Bookish and the Beast.

When I say I’ve started it I mean I’ve read about 3 pages lol. It has been sitting on my list for a bit and I know I need to read it AND I am excited to read it but just feeling a little uninterested in reading at the moment. I’m sure once I read a couple chapters I will be hooked… I mean who doesn’t like a fairy-tale retelling??

I usually read 2 books at once but I honestly don’t know what book I will pick to read alongside!! So right now I will give you the couple options I’m trying to decide between:

  • The Unhoneymooners
  • The Guest List
  • Darling Rose Gold

Struggling to pick one…. maybe someone can help me decide?? What should I read?

Well that is all for today everyone! Hope you enjoyed my little reading update and my thoughts!!

What are you reading right now? Do you plan a monthly tbr or just go with the flow?
