    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 ...

    Rating - 3/3.5 stars.I have never watched any of Connie's youtube videos and didn't realise she was a book tuber until I read a few comments before going into this book.This book was okay. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. It was a quick and easy read to get through and I finished it within two sittings.I saw Kate (Girl Reading's) review and I have to agree with it being all of the things she mentioned. It was like reading a disney original...
  • Maddie (Heart Full Of Books)
    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...
  • Claire
    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 ...

    Ich weiß gar nicht genau wie ich das Buch bewerten soll, denn in diesem Buch folgt echt ein Klischee dem nächsten, aaaaber ich hatte meinen Spaß.Dazu muss ich vllt sagen, dass ich in letzter Zeit wahnsinnig viele Fantasy Romane gelesen habe und nachdem einige davon recht langatmig waren, habe ich einfach mal wieder ein schönes Buch für zwischendurch gebraucht. Hohe Erwartungen hatte ich nicht, aber es war wirklich putzig. Gut, die Charaktere...

    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...

    Chudobnej Lottie Pumpkinovej sa splní veľký sen: prijmú ju na prestížnu anglickú internátnu školu Rosewood Hall, ktorá je v podstate ako Rokfort bez mágie - fakulty, prefekti, veľká knižnica, vysedávanie s kamarátmi. Na rovnakú školu však v ten rok nastupuje aj princezná Ellie, o ktorej by ste to nikdy nepovedali - pretože Ellie je rebelka, bitkárka a bordelárka. Vtip je v tom, že Ellie ešte nikto na verejnosti nevidel a ...

    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 ...
  • Natalie
    I'd probably give this to a girl who is around 10 years old because that's who I reckon would enjoy this kind of thing. It was a Princess/Rich Kids version of Harry Potter fan fiction but way less interesting, badly written and just.....blah. Very blah. I got 100 pages in and I wondered what the point of the story was, and it's a shame because it started off quite sweet.Then nothing. If you like Harry Potter, you'll read this and know that the au...
  • Zili
    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...
  • Andreia
    How I wish this book had been written when I was fourteen and looking for a book about girls my age who fight for each other so they can become stronger individually. But, better late than never, right? Undercover Princess is not just a funny story about a girl who pretends to be a princess so that her friend who is actually a princess can be safe from harm. It's a story about a naïve but very intelligent girl whose heart is so big and pure that...
  • Amy
    This was a nice fun read. I will be honest, I enjoyed it more than I expected! It definitely reads a bit younger but the main characters are 14/15. Would recommend if you want a nice fluffy read to have a bit of a laugh with and just enjoy without over thinking everything!
  • Kelly
    Okay. That’s how I would describe this book for me. It was simply: okay.I didn’t dislike this book but neither did I love it. The plot was okay, it did have its moments where I will happily admit to being interested and I read the book fairly quickly but it just didn’t scream ‘READ ME’ or have anything that I found particularly gripping. In fact what the plot did for me was leave lots of unanswered questions and one of those was “Why ...
  • Andrea Way
    2.5 stars. ***ARC Review from Netgalley and the publisher***Sorry not one for me. This was a book that had an interesting premise and the friendship part was done well. But had way to many YA tropes for me. I think if I were younger I might have enjoyed this but I found myself skipping parts just to get to the end.
  • Booklepuff
    Firstly this book for me only just scraped 1.5 Stars, Which barely ever happens! The cover of the arc itself was beautiful - this was one of my favourite parts about the book! But now the issues I had with it;My copy was an ARC which I get means it’s not finished but the amount of spelling mistakes, missed words, cut off sentences, extra words and sentences that out right just didn’t make sense, made for really difficult reading! I’ve read ...

    Original Review PostFirst thing first i was really really excited to read this book. I mean come on princess's and private school and Mystery. It gave me such princess diaries, hex Hall and Hogwarts vibes. So when I got the email for reviewing I said count me the heck in.Than when I got the book i got blown away by its prettiness. I love, love the arc. The front has a silhouette of a princess and has watercolors and has a big house castle silhoue...
  • Kristina
    It was a cute and fast read but nothing really special :)
  • Jess
    It would be unfair to call this a book "review" - it's entirely unprofessional, incredibly biased, far too rambly and not at all critical because I'm still viewing this world through rose-tinted glasses. But I don't want to find fault in it, partially because I want to enjoy this at 21 as much as I'd enjoy it at 15, and partially because finding fault in it would take far too much effort on my part - it's wonderful. The book isn't officially rele...

    Lottie has spent her life trying to live up to her ideal of a princess, she has her motto to be kind, brave and unstoppable. Lottie promised her mother, before she died, that she would be happy and do her best to go to Rosewood Hall school. When she manages to get a rare scholarship, she never expected that she would have a real princess as a roommate and that she would end up pretending to be her.This is the first in a new series and I think the...

    I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Edit 30.10.17 actual rating 2.5 This is a cute story of friendship intertwined with a decent bit of mystery (albeit with an unsatisfying reveal), which is enough to keep the reader guessing and the plot moving forward. Lottie, Jamie and Ellie were all likeable main characters and their relationships were generally well written and explored nicely but I don't really understand Lo...

    This review was also posted on my blog Tecsielity.It’s been a while since I read something nice and light like this. I had somehow assumed the main characters would be a bit older teens though so it took me a moment to get used to the fact that they’re actually 14!Undercover Princess was a little weird to me in that I actually enjoyed it but it also had some obvious issues, like the writing not being that great. Lottie and Ellie’s friendshi...

    MaybeI received a copy of this book for my independent honest review. It has taken me a while to consider how to review it as I am not from the target audience age group. It reminded me of a modern day Mallory Towers by Enid Blyton. I loved this series as a child growing up in the seventies and fondly remember placing myself in their world. I think that this book will have the same feel good factor for young teens today who want a little easy rea...
  •  Ela's Welt der Bücher
    Leicht und flüssig zu lesen, doch leider konnte es mich nur gegen Ende des Buches beeindrucken. 3,5 Sterne
  • Nicola
    Undercover Princess combines royalty, a boarding school setting, puzzles and mysteries and creates something really fun. Lottie and Ellie are polar opposites but quickly bond and become inseparable when some school gossip gets out of hand and they find a solution that works for both of them. I liked their friendship and the overall focus that was placed on female friendships throughout the book. Whilst there is a little romance (including LGBT), ...
  • Rosie
    During the weekend of SitC I was lucky enough to receive a proof copy of Undercover Princess. I was super excited to receive this and have been binge reading it since. So now i’m going to try and give a spoiler free review.As you start reading you very quickly find out about the school (Rosewood Hall) Connie has a way of describing the school beautifully, it makes you feel like you’re there whilst also making you want to be there. Also as you...
  • Alannah Clarke
    When I first heard about this novel, I was excited about the storyline as it sounded like something I would have loved to read when I was younger. After finishing this book, I was certainly right; I probably would have loved to read this book when I was around the age of 12-15. On the surface, this book is a cute, fluffy, sugary piece of writing but underneath I think the author had good intentions about this novel. The two main characters who I ...
  • Moyachan
    First of all: LOOOK AT THAT COVER! I want to buy this book so I can have it on display.This book is sugar and spice and everything nice. So fluffy and cute and everything you would expect from Connie Glynn. I like the some what magical wibe even when it's not a Fantasy book. It's more like, some Disney magic....I like that it's two female characters that have some romantic wibe between them. We need more of that in story telling. And I like that ...
