Paper Princess (The Royals #1)
Lori's thoughts: This is a book that flew beneath my radar until I started reading all of the book bloggers year end wrap-ups and how many of them chose this as one of their favorite reads of 2016. On a whim, I decided to take a break from the horror and action-packed-no-romance type books I've been reading recently and read Paper Princess. Honestly? I'm so glad I waited to read this after all three of the books in the trilogy were out! I would have been so mad if I finished book one and had to wait... there's a doozy of a cliffhanger!
I think that Ella is one of the best heroines I've read in a very long time. She has moxie! ;) She is tough on the outside and has a heart on the inside. She's had a tough life and winds up in the lap of luxury. But that doesn't mean that her life gets any easier. On the contrary.
Although this book is written about high school characters, it's more mature than YA. I'd classify it as a NA as far as the maturity level of the content.
Highly recommended. I am thankful that I downloaded all three books to my Kindle at the same time! Reading book two in the series right now.
