Royal Reads for Young Adults

Check out some great YA books to get you ready for the Royal Wedding.

 

Royals by Rachel Hawkins

After her sister becomes engaged to Prince Alex of Scotland, Daisy is whisked off to the palace to spend the summer learning how to behave like a member of the royal family. There, Daisy is considered a breath of fresh air by some and a pesky American social climber by others, and she is predictably thrown into romantic situations with more than one potential suitor, including Prince Sebastian, Alex’s younger brother. Grade 7+

 

The Heir and the Spare by Emily Albright

Going all the way to England for college–to Oxford, no less–for college would be exciting enough. But no sooner does Evie set foot on English soil than she falls for a boy who turns out to be a real prince–in fact, second in line to the throne of England. Edmund is wonderful, even though loving him can be a royal pain, from the demands of his family to the stuck-up aristocrat who thinks she should be the one to win Edmund’s heart. All that is swept aside, however, when the riddle of Evie’s past surfaces, and the new couple becomes obsessed with figuring out who the real Evie is, with the growing suspicion that the truth will be a shocker. Grade 8+

 

Romancing the Throne / Nadine Jolie Courtney

When a scandal at her all-girls school threatens her university prospects, Libby enrolls in her sister Charlotte’s posh boarding school, where they become rivals for the affection of their classmate–the heir to the throne of Britain. Grade 7+

 

The Selection by Kiera Cass

Sixteen-year-old America Singer is living in the caste-divided nation of Illea, which formed after the war that destroyed the United States. America is chosen to compete in the Selection–a contest to see which girl can win the heart of Illea’s prince–but all she really wants is a chance for a future with her secret love, Aspen, who is a caste below her. Grade 7+

 

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
