Ahh nothing like a day off from work and just sitting around reading. But to get started I got this book at bea. I was unsure if should read it since I didn’t like the thousandths floor but I give many chances in other worlds to see if can like them. Plus the synopsis sounds good on this book which is what if president Washington wasn’t made a president but made a king, then go thru the generations so it follows his great great something grand children one who will become the queen.
Thru this book is multi POV like that was in the thousandths floor. Which are for this book princess Beatrice heir to become queen, princess Samantha or easier sam, Nina who is sams best friend and Daphne.
With the multi POV of views unsure would grasp the story since so many plots going on but it wasn’t that bad Katharine makes the writing easy enough to follow. Unlike in T1kF was jumping between characters fast so wasn’t grasping the story and was extra gossipey from get go. And this book has the gossip to it but done much better way so not over the board with it so good mix of the story plot and gossip combined made for a great story hard to do the 2 together.
Characters: the characters in this were great and besides most rich they seemed pretty down to earth. Katherine the perfect one who can’t do no wrong and always maintaing perfect image and always looking for ways to change things for the better. Not sure if I liked her best or what not. But her story arc is cute one I feel like and just always cheering her on even monarch world is so nice.
Sam: the crazy one of the family with her twin brother. She had a ok story at parts just always wanting what Beatrice has not realizing why she wants it but out of all the people I felt she had the best change and will have greatest impact in book 2 more over Beatrice. And like all the characters minus one you wish them for the best. And loved her friendship with Nina they go hand in hand well.
Nina: one of first people who isn’t rich or royal like all the rest of the group in this book but refreshing to see since she is one of the few who can live a normal life and be friends and such with the Washington’s. She was my fav character thru most of the book just at the end I think she could of faught little more for what she believed in but I think the character in book 2 with biggest change.
Daphne: she played the villain and she played it well. Cunning while being so sweet. Even though she is bad person still liked her a bit. And also the character in book 2 will go thru a change I’m sure.
But yea the story was nice mix of the drama and all these love ships which like said the whole story actually felt real besides also being in modern day so easily one of my more fav contemporarys this year and worth a pre order and super stoked for book 2 since hoping my ships can get together even one who will not be named get there’s 5/5 stars
