It's a funny book but it's not really pulling me in. I'm 246 pgs in, do I come back to it later or keep reading?

Eyelit If it were me I‘d power through - that far in is basically the end... but if it‘s not drawing you, maybe just set aside for now? 2d
AvidReaderandGeekGirl @Eyelit yes I'm going to give it another try tonight and if I can't get into it I'll set it aside for awhile 1d

Monday morning reading with this gem of a book, which I'm quite enjoying, but I must admit: it's making me realize I have become a bit of a prude 😬 #homegirlsread #booksandcoffee

Dragonfairykats I know the feeling! I used to read explicit sex with no problem, but now I don't want any details. Behind closed doors, fade to black, or even only a hint of romance is ok now. I don't mind steam, but I don't need the whole fire. 2d

This book gave me all the deep feels ❤️ I was on pins and needles for the outcome and I think the author did a really great job making it romantic and still a little realistic. The characters all had dimensions and personalities that evoked the kind of emotions I live for when reading 😊 I can‘t recommend this book enough ❤️

[#BookReview] Red, White. And Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. I had heard amazing things about RWRB and it lived up to all its expectations. Typically I always have some big issue with each romance novel I read but this one was near perfect. I‘m already planning on buying it for my collection. If you‘ve read it I‘d love to discuss!

OMG! This book was fantastic! Sweet, smart, charming, poignant. I kind of want to start all over and read it again. All you need to know: Son of the President meets the Prince of England and dislikes him intensely until . . . he doesn‘t. May be my favorite romance of the year! #romantsy

I‘ve been in a reading slump lately, but this book got me out of it. Totally lives up to the hype. Alex‘s constant “how did I ever think I was straight” was super familiar to me, and the romance was sweet and compelling. 🏳️‍🌈💗💜💙

Loved, loved, LOVED this book! I was worried that I'd feel election fatigue but was delighted to find myself completely sucked into this gem of an alternate reality where there's a female democratic POTUS, a multi-racial first family (from Texas), and some serious ? between the first son and "Henry" the Prince of Wales (don't let the cutesy cover fool you, this is not "YA" like I thought ?)

Really impressed by this swoony debut! ??? #romance

Such a cute book! I normally don‘t like contemporary YA but I really enjoyed this one! It is definitely New Adult and not YA but 🤷🏻‍♀️ Gave me a lot of anxiety about the 2016 USA presidential election but over all I still really enjoyed this. Read it in one sitting. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I did finish this absolute TREASURE of a book though! 😍

Fun, breezy, and escapist this was a fine read, but I wish there had been more to it. Enjoyed the love story between the prince of England and FSOTUS, and the friendships portrayed...and of course a female president putting liberal policies in place. I would have liked more about her administration and also more on the British side of the story.

I ended up loving this book. It is smart and funny and sexy and cute. The love story is fun, the settings are interesting, and the characters are fleshed out and kind. I love that the author made a world close to ours with a little more optimism and love. I highly recommend this one.

I‘m in more of a reading valley than a slump. The reading struggle has been so real for months now 😫 Eileen was a DNF although I liked it well enough, I‘m currently reading/listening to The Goldfinch, picking up some Anne Lamott wisdom here and there, but nothing is making me crave time with a book. I‘m going to throw in another one and just see what happens! Wish me luck 😁🤞

A little background on me: I worked on 4 campaigns. So while I love the romance of the book I find the campaign talk just as thrilling and I just had a moment where I audibly woahed. A thing just happened and it came from left field for me, awesome job Casey McQuiston.

This week‘s Epic Reads Challenge was to read a book recommended by a favorite author. Sooo I asked Brigid Kemmerer, her books are ❤️❤️ and she hit it out of the park!

I have just two things to say. 1. This book makes my heart happy. 2. I wish this was, “based on a true story.”

Don't get me wrong - I did really like this book and the narrator was fantastic. But I have one huge criticism and I don't know how to say this, other than it's too American-centric. The story here should be about Henry, not Alex. I feel more people are interested in the Prince of Wales rather the First Son. I acknowledge that I say this as an Australian and a subject of Her Majesty The Queen, but this REALLY annoyed me.
⬇️⬇️⬇️

Sarz Henry says to Alex that it won't be over for him for four years, but there's not enough about that point. It seems to promptly forgotten once raised. A royal would have such a harder time coming out and being themselves. I want to hear more about this! 1mo
Sarz None of this is to say that anyone has an easy time coming out or that I didn't feel sympathy for Alex's situation. Also, don't mean it as a criticism of the United States. 1mo
CarolynM I know what you mean, there were a few things that didn't ring true to me about the Royal stuff, but I willingly suspended disbelief and went along for the ride😀 1mo

I‘m used to suspend my disbelief but this book asked me to believe a lot of very dumb stuff. Lots of escapism, not much realism. There is a lot of (rightful) criticism of the British monarchy, but nothing about America‘s history of racism & imperialism. America is portrayed as this big fantasy land which is annoying given reality.
Still, lots of cute stuff, though I prefer fanfiction.

I can love you and want you and still not want that life. I'm allowed, all right, and it doesn't me me a liar; it makes me a man with some infinitesimal shred of self-preservation, unlike you, and you don't get to come here and call me a coward for it.

It's weird to say this about a novel that is wish fulfillment but this book had too much artifice and exaggeration for me to take it seriously. Everything in this book was extreme: emotions, language, pace, characters. McQuiston took an element and streeeeeeeeeeeeetched to the point of caricature. The result was something that detailed the depressing reality of our current political landscape with bubble gum True Love that didn't quite gel.

Started this one on the flight home and then finished it last night when jet lag—or my regular schedule while on excavation—had me up at 3am. It‘ll come as no surprise to anyone who has read the book that it was the perfect thing to giggle & roll my eyes through on the way home. Which isn‘t to say I didn‘t enjoy it, I did. It was just the right amount of funny, predictable but oh so amusing &, oh yeah, did I mention entertaining? Fun, light read.
