The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
I am so excited to be reading The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (the voices behind the fashion site Go Fug Yourself). I’m so into all things royal and this book is my ideal read. I’ve read it a few times and even listened to it on audio (OMG. SO GOOD. One of the best audio books I’ve ever listened to. The narrator is truly gifted!). The characters are fun and so flushed out, I think you will really, REALLY love this one.
It’s so good in fact, there’s a movie in the works…Word on the street is that it’s currently being adapted into a screenplay by our girl Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls) and into movie very soon! Also the book’s sequel will be coming next year which is very, very exciting!
American Bex Porter arrived in Oxford to study abroad and sketch the stunning landscapes and architecture. She did not plan on rooming down the hall from the future King of England. She certainly didn’t plan on marrying him. But on the eve of the wedding of the century, Bex reflects on how she got to this pivotal moment, what it will take to move forward, and if it’s all really worth it.
From the Editors
Why We Chose It:
My obsession with this book is so real. I’m a sucker for anything royal, but unlike most royal narratives, this one is satisfyingly good. Full, robust characters, a plot line that keeps you guessing, and a romantic thread that will have you rooting for and swooning over your favorite characters. This is a must read, and truthfully… I’ve read it cover to cover no less than four times.

This has got to be one of my all time favorite books! At nearly 500 pages this book is not brief, but the story is so compelling and the characters so delightful I finished it wanting more. After reading the hardback years ago, I re-read it by listening to the audiobook this time and can’t recommend it enough—the narrator is fantastic!
As a longtime fan of all things royal, I knew I would love this book from the start. It’s the perfect mix of fun, dramatic, and romantic all rolled together in one! It’s one of my favorite books ever.
