Synopsis/Sinopsis:
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

 

Bagaimana jika Amerika memiliki keluarga kerajaan?

Ketika Amerika memenangkan Perang Revolusi, rakyatnya menawari Jenderal George Washington sebuah mahkota. Dua setengah abad kemudian, House of Washington masih duduk di atas takhta.

Ketika Puteri Beatrice semakin dekat untuk menjadi ratu pertama di Amerika, tugas yang telah ia emban sepanjang hidupnya tiba-tiba terasa mencekik. Tidak ada yang peduli tentang anak kedua kecuali ketika dia melanggar aturan, jadi Puteri Samantha juga tidak peduli tentang apa pun. . . kecuali satu anak lelaki yang jelas-jelas terlarang baginya. Dan kemudian ada saudara kembar Samantha, Pangeran Jefferson. Jika dia dilahirkan satu generasi lebih awal, dia akan berdiri di garis depan untuk tahta, tetapi hukum-hukum suksesi yang baru membuatnya menjadi yang ketiga. Sebagian besar orang Amerika memuja pangeran mereka yang tampan. . . tetapi dua gadis yang sangat berbeda berlomba untuk merebut hatinya.

I thought I will be reading only from Betrice perspective, I was surprised at first when turn out there are 3 other perspective [Samantha (Beatrice younger sister), Nina (Samanta’s best friend) and Daphne (Prince Jeffersonโ€™s ex girlfriend)]โฃ
Saya pikir saya akan membaca hanya dari perspektif Betrice, saya terkejut ketika ternyata ada 3 perspektif lain [Samantha (adik perempuan Beatrice), Nina (sahabat Samanta) dan Daphne (mantan pacar Pangeran Jefferson)] โฃ

โฃ
American royals have a great memorable characters and characters development.โฃ
I kinda dislike almost all the characters at the beginning, except the antagonist. They felt selfish/self-centered.
I do not know why, Katharine McGee made me sympathetic towards the antagonist.โฃ
And at the end of the story, I love almost all them and can see how much they have grown. โฃ
American royals memiliki karakter dan pengembangan karakter yang mengesankan
Saya tidak suka hampir semua karakter di awal, kecuali tokoh antagonis. Para tokohnya terasa egois / terlalu mementingkan diri sendiri.
Saya tidak tahu mengapa, Katharine McGee dapat membuat saya justru bersimpati terhadap tokoh antagonisnya.โฃ
Dan di akhir cerita, saya mencintai hampir semua dari mereka dan dapat melihat seberapa besar/jauh mereka telah berkembang.

โฃ
The writing is so page turner! I can’t wait to read the next book ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โฃ
โฃ
If you like drama and royalty story, I totally recommend this book ๐Ÿ˜Šโฃ
Thank you so much @prhinternational for sending me American Royals. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜โฃ

Penulisannya begitu page turner! Saya tidak sabar untuk membaca buku selanjutnya ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โฃ
โฃ
Jika Anda suka cerita drama dan royalti, saya sangat merekomendasikan buku ini ๐Ÿ˜Šโฃ
Terima kasih banyak @prhinternational karena mengirimkan American Royals kepada saya ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜โฃ

  1. Sinopsisnya terlihat seru ya kak ๐Ÿ˜†
    Entah kenapa aku juga lebih sering bersimpati sama tokoh antagonis dibandingkan protagonisnya ๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. Kalau Inggris memang sudah terkenal dengan kerajaannya.. Nah ini ada versi Amerikanya.. Sepertinya seru untuk dimasukkan kedalam daftar bacaan Desember nanti. Soalnya untuk bulan November sudah penuh. Oh iya mbak inilah versi bahasa Inggrisnya, kalau versi bahasa Indonesia sudah ada belum yah?
