This book is so, so good. I read all 400+ pages in about 2 days (with annoying work in the way). It is hilarious and so cleverly written, full of amazing characters and tropey, wholesome fairy tale romance. There's all kinds of representation in it and it just felt so good to read. I wish I could just immediately read it again.

Logging onto litsy for the first time in (checks watch) FIVE? months to freak out and gush over how good this book is and how amazingly happy the reading experience was and how I smiled almost the whole time I read it and how the film rights have been optioned and it‘s gonna be amazing and I can‘t wait. My favorite read of 2019. I‘m bereft that it is over.

(For the record this is NOT YA, anymore than ACOTAR series should be, so be aware haha)

I absolutely LOVED this book. What happens when the First Son falls in love with the Prince of England? I loved Alex and Henry. I rooted for them as well as felt sadness for them. I am so glad they got their happy ending. This was just the rom com that I needed!I can't to see what Amazon Studios does with this book.

Best thing about my #bfc evening walks: the scenery, the delicious smell of the honeysuckle all along the park, and getting to listen to Henry & Alex bicker & make up.

Worst thing: the MOSQUITOS! 🦟 They are out in full force due to all the rain we‘ve had.

My fitness goal was only partially attained this week, since life happened. But I‘m looking forward to a new week! #bookfitnesschallenge

A parallel universe where things went mostly right, not only in 2016 but onward. Hard to read for that reason. Often too flip about the Deeply Perfect Protagonist and the Extremely Sexy AND Smart First Family, but OK, fantasy is fantasy. Some very sweet moments at the end. 3.5 ⭐️ 🏳️‍🌈

This one seemed to have quite the advance press. Will that pan out? Do I GAF about a YA royal & a YA president‘s son? Hmmmm. I do enjoy the occasional royal romance as long as it‘s queer, & this one fits the bill. ALSO I wonder how the author got away with no Oxford comma in the title. Find out soon, I guess! #romance #gay #royals

You‘ll want to read this book, you SHOULD read this book. People are all alike. Even if you aren‘t LGBTQ, you‘ve experienced a crush, a relationship, maybe you‘ve experienced love. And that is a shared experience we can all relate to. This is a book about self-discovery and acceptance and all the good things you want to see in a good book. You can get it yourself on May 14th, 2019. TODAY. PS GOT THIS IMAGE FROM GOODREADS because...

Smangela my cover was just a netgalley cover so.. not fun or adorable like this one.

ALSO it's been optioned by Amazon Studios and I honestly cannot wait to see this on the big screen

Thanks to #Partner @NetGalley for the digital ARC of Casey McQuiston‘s Red, White, & Royal Blue in exchange for an honest review. The book releases today(!), May 14th. I absolutely adored this novel. McQuiston does a beautiful job building intriguing, realistic, nuanced characters who are relatable, even though they‘re in the White House and Buckingham Palace. The romance is the perfect balance of steamy and tender, (continued in comments)

Unabridged and the subplots behind the main storyline are thoughtful and brilliant. I picked up my Kindle, not knowing what to expect, and had a hard time putting it down. Please pick up Red, White, & Royal Blue as soon as you can . . . and love it as much as I do. (You can check out my full review at http://www.unabridgedpod.com/book-reviews.) 1w

An enemies to lovers story about the son of the POTUS falling for the spare heir to the British throne and a definite entry on my best of 2019 list. This book is every bit as fun and sweet as you would hope it would be but it is also has surprising depth. Falling in love can be scary enough but Alex and Henry have the weight of their country‘s expectations on their shoulder. I loved this book.

It has characters of all races and genders and sexuality. It‘s set multiple locations including Austin and Houston. I‘m from Texas so loved that also. I will Be ordering this book because I

I loved this book so much I can‘t even really put into words. I have never related to characters in a book as much as I related to both Alex and Henry. I, too, know what it‘s like to want to live up to/maintain an image that your family has cast upon you. I saw myself in both of these characters, especially Alex who is Hispanic and bisexual as well. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to laugh and cry! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This meet-cute has a fun premise: the President of the United State‘s son falls in love with the spare heir of England. That story alone was worth the read, but the author adds political campaign tactics, the issue of mixed race in America, and homophobia in both countries to take this from a good fluffy novel to a great modern read. #netgalley

This book is amazing. I wasn‘t sure if I wanted to read this; premise sounded great, but I wasn‘t sure if I would be into a queer romance. Spoiler, I totally was!!!! Casey does such a great job getting you to feel all these great emotions about falling in love and you don‘t really think about it as specifically between two guys, we‘ll except for when Alex is thinking it. I laughed, I cried, I grinned to myself; again, this book is amazing.

***#earc thanks to #netgalley for a fair review***

My only thought is that I would‘ve liked more of Henry. The story is hyper focused on Alex - he‘s our coming-of-age, growing up in the spotlight, million megawatt kid, but I couldn‘t help but feel like Henry was a large part of that shine. In general, the development of the secondary character cast and the excellent writing has this novel shining brightly. Muy agradable!

McQuiston could write the West Wing novel of my dreams and I‘d read every word of it!

Alex is FSOTUS...but he‘s also a lot of other things too - founding member of the Surprising Six (although I‘m team Zahra all the way!), college student, man-about-town, inspector of bushes along Pennsylvania Ave (rosebushes in particular), aspiring Senator, presidential campaigner...dude, take a nap already!

I LOVE this book. I started it thinking it was just going to be a fun and sexy rom com. Which it was but it also had a deeper heart and I loved the presidential campaign plot line. It made me emotional because it‘s an alternate reality I would love to live in.

I received an advanced copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

McQuiston did exactly what she hoped to do with this read... create a parallel universe in which readers can escape, heal election trauma, and exist, albeit briefly, in an alternate reality. She created loveable, complex and dynamic characters. This is my first true “I laughed, I cried” read of 2019. All the cliches used for the best works of fiction apply here. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

rachelsbrittain @CoffeeNBooks that's awesome! I really enjoyed the half that I read, but college classes kind of took over at the time and I just didn't quite manage to finish it 😅 but I'm thinking revisiting it without that pressure would be fun and more managable! 3mo
