September’s Selection

American Royals by Katharine McGee

I've been looking forward to September's book for months and have barely been able to contain my excitement! American Royals is an absolute treat of a book, and one that you won't be able to put down! The writing and storyline are both smart and effervescent. It's one of those books you'll read in a weekend and then tell all of your girlfriends about. If you loved The Royal We and Gossip Girl, then honey, this book is for you! Eeek!! I seriously can't wait for you to read this one! xo, Ashley Brooke

What It's About
What if America had a royal family? What if George Washington is made King at the end of the revolutionary war and the house of Washington continues to reign into the present day? American Royals explores this idea as Princess Beatrice is preparing to become the first Queen regnant and her siblings are navigating relationships and crossroads as "the spares," royal children not destined to reign. Princess Samantha has her eye on a boy who is definitely off limits and two very different girls are vying for the heart of Prince Jefferson. McGee's reimagining of an America ruled by monarchs is inspired. Intriguing and addictive, you'll be adding the Washingtons to your list of favorite royal families alongside the Cambridges and Sussexes.

Royals, gossip, love triangles... it's fair to say that American Royals is my dream book! I can't wait for you to read it!

I've been telling everyone this book is Gossip Girl meets The Royal We which obviously means I loved it! I couldn't put it down and am so glad a sequel is coming so I can spend more time in the house of Washington.

Oh my gosh, this book. It felt like the perfect culmination of all of my interests, & specifically when it comes to royal drama! It’s such a page turner and the ending just leaves you wanting more! I couldn’t read it fast enough.
