I grew up closer to the “poor” side than the “rich” side of things so this book wasn’t super relatable for me. I couldn’t believe that Alexis could go out and in one afternoon come back with an internship from Vogue. Nor could I comprehend spending lavish amounts of money on nothing at all. The girls decided to fly to Malta to see Prince Willi ...more
To Catch a Prince was just as light, fluffy and pleasant a read as I expected it to be - and sometimes, that's the kind of book I really enjoy.

While it isn't an excellent book, I'd recommend it for some light-hearted read. Though if you're completely devoted to the royal family, I do ...more
At least Britain does have a royal family with a number of princes but seriously, France?

Not exactly the read I was hoping for but still fun. It's cliché and unbelievable. It's cheesy and sometimes you may not like the characters, but ultimately it's a fun read worth checking out if you ever want a light read. Very entertaining.
