  • ✨ jamieson ✨
    you hetero bitches have been getting "I'm falling in love with a man whoops turns out he's a prince" stories for YEARS and finally, finally us sapphics got ours. “...No, what surprises me is the sudden, jolting, and undeniable realization that even I didn’t want to, I’ve fallen for an actual princess.” THIS WAS SO FREAKIN CUTE. I was pretty much just expecting an easy, fluffy, sweet read about girls in love and THAT IS WHAT I GOT. I love...

    I really thought I didn’t like contemporary romance but turns out I was just bored of reading about straight people pulling the same shit over and over again and I’m definitely here for the concept of “falling in love with your royal classmate in boarding school BUT MAKE IT GAY”

    Full review now posted! 4.5 royally sapphic stars I devoured this book on audio in basically a day and oh my god, friends. There is a very specific emotion that us sapphic girls feel when presented with good sapphic content in fiction, and depending on our tastes in terms of tropes and genres, different sapphic books will hit us differently. The feeling I got from this book was one of pure joy from getting a royal romance, usually reserved for a ...

    Another royal romance!This is the companion novel to Royals (or Prince Charming) but it can safely be read as a standalone. Daisy, her sister and boyfriend make only a short appearance and you will not feel lost at any point. But you can certainly get lost in the interesting and unusual romance between Peasant Millie and Princess Flora, I’ll allow it. This story combines some of my top favourite things in books: boarding schools, princesses and...

    It’s all fun and gaymes until you realize you could have have rewritten approximately a third of the book, and it would have ended up 5x better, despite not even being a half-decent writer.The issue with this book is that the pacing is completely off. I honestly would have rated it higher if the pacing hadn’t been so weird and janky, because it’s a fluffy book that you could simply have a lot of fun reading. But my slight enjoyment of the b...

    4.5 starswouldnt it be cool if i went to a boarding school and had a princess fall in love with me hahaha.... just kidding....... unless??I knew within 50 pages this book was going to get a high rating. Like I said about Prince Charming, the first book, this series is so feel-good and upbeat and addicting to read. Millie and Flora's camaraderie and hate to love romance was *chefs kiss* FROM THE GODS and their development, though contained in a sh...

    oadsfjgofjd lassyeah too lazy to think of a clever tagline but this was cute! i adored the setting and the overall ~mood~ of this book. i felt like i was in scotland and for that, this book gets 3 stars. but there were a few things that bugged me.- the audiobook narrator's deep south accent for a houstonian (sorry bro we don't sound like that)- the beginning of the book- the mc's motivationsidk, my biggest issue was that the things i was supposed...

    rep: bi mc, lesbian lievery sapphic girl deserves to fall for a princess, thanks for agreeinganyway, someone tell hawkins you gotta actually develop your characters before you throw in the angst and you can't do that at the very end bc pacing does matter Blog | Twitter | Instagram | Bloglovin | Reads Rainbow

  • Clemlucian (🏳️‍🌈the villain's quest)
    cheesy starsI liked the lesbian rep and love story but it wasn’t remarkable in any way. I felt like the characters were decently crafted but not explored as deeply as they could have been. The cuteness was there but I didn't really feel a romantic connection between the characters, therefore, I didn't really ship it. The rest of the characters blur in my mind, which shows how poorly developed and used they were.The romantic plot was pretty stra...

    11. June 2019 that moment you realize teenagers have more of a love life than you do God damn, this was so cute Rachel Hawkins could write, like, 6 more stories in this setting and I would buy them ALL.Flora and Millie? S'CUTE iltsmNow i'm casually waiting for her to announce the Sebastian story bc my bb boi deserves so much also I need more of Daisy and MilesI want a story for Elle and Alex and how they met ugh I love this anthology of stories ~...
  • Trina (Between Chapters)
    Cute story. Enjoyed Flora much more than I expected I would from the TINY bit we saw of her in the first book. The scene where the main character from this book meets the main character of book 1 was great! These books worked really well as companions and I hope there are more in the series!Audiobook: 5 stars. The narrator had excellent accents (Texan and Scottish) and switched between them flawlessly. She read with personality and emotion. Exact...

    3.5 STARS***FLORA AND MILLIE ARE DORKS AND I LOVE THEM. seriously this book was adorable and i loved that we got to see characters from the first book in the series. i didn't quite enjoy it as much as the first one BUT i still thought it was cute. so rachel hawkins when are you going to release a book about the hot mess that is seb?
  • Hollis
    Listen, HER ROYAL HIGHNESS is not just a lovely sapphic royal contemporary but it's also.. fun. I thought this of the first in the Royals series, too. Are they perfect books? No. Infact, I thought the mini breakup in this one to be.. not awesome, both a little sloppy and too out of nowhere, but that doesn't negate all the warm fuzzies and overall entertainment, and did I mention fun, that it provided. And I needed some (a lot) of fun, so, #winnin...

    Realistically more of a 4.5, but I’m high off of all the swooning I just did so FIVE. STARS.
  • Stacee
    I had liked the first book in this series and was absolutely here for gay princesses. Sadly, this one fell short for me. Millie was just okay to me. I did love her smarts and dedication and love for her family. Flora was actually more of a marshmallow than I was expecting and was quite sweet. I just couldn’t ever get invested in either of them or their relationship. Plot wise, it was boring. I do love a good boarding school setting, but this di...

    3.5 starsFull review hereJust as the first book in this series, this was a fun and quick read. I loved Millie, the main character. She was interesting and funny and definitely tried to adapt to all things royal. It was nice to see another side of Flora and to get to know her better. Their relationship was very sweet, even though a bit sudden. From the moment Millie realized she had a crush on Flora it all happened very fast, whereas in the first ...

    Looking back, there are many things I didn't love about this, but the book was entertaining enough to make me forget about that for most of its length, so does it really matter? Sometimes all you need is a quick read that won't require that much of your attention and I'm glad that there are traditionally published queer YA books that fit this requirement.Her Royal Highness is an f/f royal romance set in Scotland with an American main character. O...

    read the last chapter and try to convince me that the author didn't base it off of dancing with our hands tied by taylor swift

    4.25/5starsThis was sO CUTE and GAY and UGH. Lowered slightly cause these books definitely follow a pretty set pattern and I wish the ending could have gone for a bit longer but other than that this was too cute!!
