September’s Book: Majesty

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!

Quick Summary:

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:

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.

    I won’t be upset if every September we read a new book in this series by Katharine McGee! Majesty was SO GOOD!
