    4.5* Harry Potter meets Cinderella, meets The Princess Diaries, meets The Princess Protection Programme (yes, that fab and totally underrated Demi Lovato/Selena Gomez movie) in Connie Glynn's wonderful debut novel, Undercover Princess. I'm painfully aware of how many 'meets etc.' I've just used but I promise they will *hopefully* make sense after you've read the book, which, of course, you definitely should do. Yet, even with these comparisons (o...

    DNF at 50%I think this is a major case of 'it's not me, it's you'. Rosewood Chronicles tells the story of Lottie Pumpkin as she enters the privileged world of boarding schools at Rosewood Hall. Here she meets Ellie Wolf, secret princess of Maradova, and otherwise normal teenage girl. Together the two form a friendship as they fight to keep Ellie's true identity a secret - which might be more difficult than it sounds.The writing for this was very ...

    I started reading this in July, got through the first 30 pages and then gave up because the writing style was too bogged down with adjectives. I picked it back up again because royalty and boarding schools are two of my favourite buzzwords and I really wanted to be impressed. But, I think I'm a decade too old to really enjoy it. A lot of the story had a more middle-grade vibe than YA, so this would be the perfect book for 10-12 year old girls who...

    First things first let’s talk about how beautiful this cover is?I meant seriously, I can’t stop staring at it it’s so bloody nice to look at. 💛💛This is probably one of the prettiest books of 2017 for me, it’s that pretty that I’m tempted to buy the physical book so it can look all nice on my bookshelf!!! 😊There is always a bit if apprehension when a “youtuber book” comes out but I didn’t mind, it’s nice to see them bran...

    UNDERCOVER PRINCESS is a fun, adventurous tale with charming main characters and an intriguing mystery, but its downfall is the underdeveloped supporting cast, juvenile prose, poor world-building and contrived plot.This book is very obviously written by a YouTuber, and by that I mean, someone given a book deal for their audience, not their penmanship. The writing and plotting are messy and cringe-worthy, at times, despite how much love and heart ...

    Книга «Undercover Princess» – это роман жанра Young Adult в стиле городского фэнтези, который подойдет возрастной аудитории 15+ (в книге присутствуют намеки и прямые упоминания однополой любви и романтическая линия для 14-летней главной героини).Довольно необы...

    Cinderella, you will go to the ball! OK! There aren't any wicked step sisters, but there is a stepmother, a rinses and a ball in this YA adventure. However, most of the story actually takes place at Rosewood Hall, a prestigious boarding school that orphan Lottie Pumpkin has worked very hard to get into. She's the first student in twelve years to have a bursary scholarship to enable her to attend alongside the offspring of the elite and famous. A ...

    I recieved this book from Netgalley for an honest review. So Thank You Penguin Random House UK and obviously Connie Glynn.Let me start off by saying I went into this book thinking it might be a little young for me. Being the ripe old age of 26, however that was so not the case this book engrossed me so much I read it in one sitting. I loved the character development, the relationship between Ellie and Lottie was just so cute. I adored the entire ...

    I'm a conflicted about Undercover Princess because on one hand it's a nice boarding story but on the hand it's a little far fetched and loaded with certain YA tropes that I'm not a fan of.I have to admit I wasn't aware of Connie Glynn as a YouTuber but I don't believe this would have had any impact on my experience of the book had I known beforehand. I'm very levelheaded with reviews and am willing to take it as it comes - if I like a book I like...
