Friday 56 – American Royals by Katharine McGee

Welcome to Friday 56! Hosted by Freda’s Voice, you turn to page 56 or 56% in any book or reading device and pick a sentence that grabs you.

My book of the week is American Royals by Katharine McGee (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

What if America had a royal family?

When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne.

As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling.

Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her.

And then there’s Samantha’s twin, Prince Jefferson. If he’d been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.”

FRIDAY 56 QUOTE

“You had to hand it to the Washingtons, Daphne thought, from where she sat in the audience of the knighthood ceremony. They really knew how to do pomp and circumstance.”

Page 56 is the start of a new chapter, told from the point of view of Daphne, the ex girlfriend of the Prince. She won’t be deterred and is convinced that they are meant to be together. I thought that this quote summed up the family and the sort of things that they did well in two sentences!

I am absolutely loving this book and look forward to reading it every evening.
