Majesty by Katharine McGee
Happy September, friends! I don’t know about you, but I like to think about September as the other January…there is something very “fresh start” about it, don’t you think?
This month we are reading Majesty, by Katharine McGee. It’s a bit like déjá vu around here as we read the first book in this series, American Royals, last September! We are so thrilled to be featuring the sequel and think you are going to LOVE learning about what your favorite royals have been up to! Think of it as going back to school with your favorite rich and famous friends!

After losing her father suddenly and dramatically, Princess Beatrice is ready to reign in McGee’s fictionalized America. While Bea prepares to assume the throne, her sister Samantha continues to be the country’s party princess who finds a new companion for her shenanigans. Sam’s best friend, Nina, is trying to avoid the royal scene entirely after breaking up with Prince Jefferson while Daphne Deighton is as committed as ever to winning him back.

Why We Chose It:
I’ve been waiting with bated breath on this book for the last 365 days, and I have to say, it does NOT disappoint! Majesty is everything we’ve been waiting for and more!

Sequels can be tricky business but I’m so happy to report that Majesty is every bit as good as American Royals, if not better! I loved this book as we got a better look at all our favorite characters and saw them grow and mature as their relationships evolve.
American Royals was arguably my favorite book of 2019 and I cannot wait for you to see what all our favorite characters have been up to! I’m too excited for words for y’all to read this one!
About the Author
Katharine McGee is the New York Times bestselling author of the Thousandth Floor series. She studied English and French literature at Princeton and has an MBA from Stanford. She’s been speculating about American royalty since her undergraduate days, when she wrote a thesis on “castle envy”: the idea that the American psyche is missing out on something, because Americans don’t have a royal family of their own.
Katharine lives with her husband in her hometown of Houston, Texas.
