Royally interesting

There are very few things that are easy to do when it is sunny out. All I’ve wanted to is sit outside, but it is next to impossible to see a computer screen outside. I did go for a drive and ended up shopping instead of just getting Starbucks. I’m getting prepared for all the sorority life crafting I know that is coming up in the following weeks. I’m actually really excited to be crafting again, I never thought I’d be any good at it but I do a half decent job.

So since a computer screen is usually off-limits for outside, and shopping well let’s face it can get pretty pricey, the best thing to do outside is grab a towel and a book (maybe some Starbucks) and enjoy the sun! A really great, cheap, small, and entertaining book is Niki Burnham’s Royally Jacked.

This funny teen read is one of those great books that flies by. It’s little size makes it perfect for the beach or for on the go reading. The poor girl has a lot of random things happen to her that cause a situation where her dad moves to some European country to be a chief for a royal family. She decides to go with her dad, because the situation with her mom just wasn’t what Valerie (main character) wanted to deal with at the time.

She then goes on to live my dream life, the family of course has a really cute son her age. It isn’t easy at first, like any relationship ever is, and she struggles with the fact that he’s a real life prince. All bets are off when they meet and it makes Valerie really happy that she took the chance and went with her dad. It also has two sequels, which I was also obsessed with. Who doesn’t love a cute, quick read? I don’t always have time to finish a major novel, but these little books are easy to start and finish!

Simon Pulse does a lot of these cute quick reads, I was really into reading them at one point and am starting to get back into them again. I’m a bit of a bookworm if you can’t already tell.

Well, time for me to go outside and get off this computer! Hopefully you get to do that too!

Love, Lindsey
