This book was quite a disappointment after the first book. Calypso has gone WAY too far in her goal to achieve high popularity. Not only has she become SOOOOO insecure that she can't wear wellies around her boyfriend, but she has become extremely occupied on her own personal issues, no wonder Freddie dumped her. I mean, she doesn't mind wearing a short skirt in the snow if it means she looks good, Freddie even asked why she wasn't wearing tights! Maybe Star was right, maybe Freddie is shallow, ...more

I read a Royal Match a few months ago but I remember really enjoying it. When I heard there was a sequel I had to read it. I started the book and got through approximately 60 pages, by then I couldn't continue on reading. I rarely do this even if the book is terrible but I found it just irritating. I like how in some books if you haven't read the last one the author puts in little hints of what happened previously but here it was like A Royal Mess was a whole new book. I found the main character ...more

Shelves: romance, teen
A one-star review! Quelle horreur! Trés, trés mortifying. At some point I questioned myself what made me put up with this early teen self-absorbed drama-queen narration. My compulsive obsession to read all books in series, that's what.

Yes, I know, life is too short to read books you don't like and all that, but...
My compulsive obsession to read all books in series, that's what

So the title summed it up for me : it's a royal mess.

If in the previous book Calypso is borderline annoying, in this book she has crossed every line. Her fickleness gave me headache. E

I don't know why, but I seem to have a thing for two books in one for so,e reason. But really this was a great. I have to confess I didn't realize that there were two other books before these two, but that didn't affect me when reading this book. It actually made it even better and the book basically recapped what happened before, so it was okay. This was a really good book and I loved every part of it. The plots, the characters, the twists and turns, and lastly the ending. The first book ...more

A royal match was way better but I liked this one because it was nice to get back into the world of the boarding school etc.. Still witty and kind of funny but way too much drama involving the fencing

Has a really great plot but it took for ever to get to the main point but I cant wait to read the next book

This was interesting. It was writing from a 14/15 year old point of view and it gives an interesting glimpse into an English life. Although, it was really boring.

This book wasn't one of my favorites but I still enjoyed it. If i could pick one word to describe this book it would be cute. Worth the ten bucks though? probably not.

I could not finish it. I just could not it got to awkward for me. I loved a Royal Match and was a little dissapointed.

This was ok.. But I like her and Freds.. And I wish there was another book. Even if she doesn't get with Freds and stays with Malcolm, I want everything explained more.
