Okay so I've gone a little overboard on the book recs this week but it was a stellar week and I like to support authors on their release days esp. when I've read the books and
And I will say, I do not recommend a book I don't love. And trust me, the Bookanistas get tons of books so the ones we stand behind are the ones we like. We do not push books just because we might
know the author.
Now for The Royal Treatment!
Have you guys read Princess For Hire by Lindsey Leavitt. It truly is Meg Cabot meets magic. The Royal Treatment is the sequel. Now I adore this series for middle graders/tweens. It's cute and clever. Well, and let's face it - it also has glitter, princesses, and bubbles in it. Who could ask for more?
Except... Lindsey gives soooo much more in this series.
Her downright hilarious humor. Now, I happen to know her very well and let me
say she is just as funny if
not funnier in person. Maybe almost as funny as me ;) (Can't you tell how happy we are by our cheeky grins :) Okay enough about Linds and I - now back to the book.
In The Royal Treatment, Desi Bascomb’s job as a princess substitute has gotten a whole lot more glamorous now that she’s advanced to Level 2 within the Facade Agency. Magical make-up, roller-skating celebrities, and the chance to see Prince Karl again are just some of the major perks. Not to mention, she’s landed the role of Fairy Queen in her school’s production of Midsummer’s Night Dream (opposite her best friend’s crush. Which is a little weird, but at least he wears a donkey head during their kissing scene). Life should be perfect, but Desi can’t seem to shake the feeling that there is more going on with the agency’s magic than she’s told. Like why is this mind-bending power exclusive to royals? Is it possible that there could be a bigger way to make an impact in both parts of her life?
Lindsey (who is also the author of Sean Griswold's Head - also another great book) makes Desi so believable. She's so awkward (Desi that is :) and honest. She's nosy, headstrong, and totally wigs out when she panics. Love her.
Meredith - Desi's agent, reminds me of a female NIGEL in Devil wears Prada. She's funny and tough.
The ending made me laugh out loud . The book leaves you knowing more great stuff is coming. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
Who is your favorite princess and why? Comment and I have a The Royal Treatment giveaway for you! :)
