TitleThe Princess in Theory (Reluctant Royals #1)
Author: Alyssa Cole Date Started: August 13 Date Finished: August 17
Stars: 4.5 of 5
Review: Loved this book, but there was just one plot resolution I wasn't a fan of...hence the 1/2 star loss.  Can't wait to get my hands on book #2

Peek Inside a Book - A Princess in Theory

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow.

This week I'm reading: A Princess in Theory (Reluctant Royals #1) by Alyssa Cole

Verdict: Really…

It Begins: Thursday, May 10
Chapter 1
"The House Select Committee will come to order..."
