In this book, a character want to reflect on is Calypso. She is having a text-flirtation with two really cool, handsome boys. One is really rich and the other is royalty. The La Fiesta ball is coming up but she doesn't know who she's going with. And even worse, she rooming with one of the meanest, most stuck-uppest, richest, psycho girls on school. Well, she's also rooming with a very aloof-demeanour girl, whose mother died over the vacation. She becomes friends with her until she gets the weird ...more
A brill 2nd book in the seris of the Calypso Chronicles!!!

When Calypso is placed in a dorm room with It-Girl Miss Honey O'Hare, she reckons this year is gonna be a nightmare. And to be honest with you, shes not far wrong.

But also in her dorm room is Lady Portia Herrington Briggs, her fencing companion. But when boys complicate thier new found friendship, its not good. And when an invitation to the Euro-Royal Bash dosn't turn up, Calypso's sure her and Freddie's relationship is over.

But maybe
Not as good as the first book in the series, Pulling Princes, but Stealing Princes is still really cute. I felt there was a little too much recap at the beginning of the book, but towards the end I could not stop reading! During some of the book I was a little afraid of the direction Calypso's character was going, but she straightened herself up eventually! And it seems as if Calypso finally has her prince, but we'll just have to see what book three has in store!
This was an important part of my 'teenhood' and I really loved it, I never got to read the next ones because they haven't translated nor have the english version so I'm left with pdf, which I'm not a big fan of so I guess I'll just have to wait.
The characters were witty and funny, also age apropriate, and I tought it had a feel of 'Wild Child', which I saw after reading the books and found some similarities.

I recommend this book if you want a light read, full of teenage problems and humour. Although not meant to be serious, this series does tackles issues such as bulimia and teen drinking. The boarding school setting is fresh and interesting compared to most books, and actually quite realistic. Give it a go!

This was actually totally different from the first book, and I actually liked it much better! There was definitely a lot more drama in this one, and the plot was just more intricate in full. Again, kind of a beach read, but I liked it nonetheless.
Really cute. The ending was great, although there was still some tension between Calypso and Portia at the end. I'm glad she ended up with who she ended up with at the end. Like I said, overall it was a really cute story.
I really enjoyed this book, Calypso was a fun character, and I just liked all the funny things that happened!
I <3 IT! FREDS IS AMAZING! I DETEST Honey though. <3 it! starting the third one!
Ce deuxième tome est toujours drôle et pétillant, mais il est aussi extrêmement agaçant du fait de la personnalité puérile de Calypso. Son absence de jugeote rend la plupart de ses attitudes lamentable. C'en est même gênant ! Et je tiens à rappeler que, finalement, la romance royale entre Calypso et le prince ne sert que de fil rouge ténu tant le garçon est peu présent (bon, ok, son personnage n'est pas extraordinaire et encore moins crédible, et j'aime bien Billy dont on cherche à se débarrasse ...more
Wew.. baca ini bikin greget banget sama Calypso... ga kaya buku pertamanya yang bikin kasian dan suka sama calypso. Disini Calypso sekamar dengan honey O'Hare temen asramanya yang sangat membencinya dan selalu ngebullynya. Namun lama-kelamaan Calypso jd kaya si Honey perlakuannya... belum lagi Calypso yang flirting sm dua cowo sekaligus yaitu Pangeran Freddy dan Billy. Calypso menerima akibatnya s3ndiri akan kelakuannya...

I enjoyed reading this one and Tyne has become my favorite author in no time. Started this last last week, lost touch in between but I picked it up again earlier today and finished it in a go. I really I were Calypso, and I had hunky boys around me. Every girl who had an awesome teenage years in boarding would love this, those who did not will get a piece of it in this book.

masih dengan kehidupan Callypso Kelly yang disemester ini harus sekamar dengan Honey O' Harey, musuh bebunyutan dan Portia yang juga 1 tim di klub anggar. Callypso harus menahan cemburu karena sekarang Star 1 kamar dengan Georgina dan Indiamaca atau yang dipanggil Indie, putri dari nigeria serta murid baru di sekolahnya. Terlebih lagi Star yang menyatakan keluar dari klub anggar dan ingin fokus dengan musiknya bersama-sama Indie.

More like 3 1/2 (I liked the first one better) because, although still funny, very similar to first book.
The plot was thin, and I didn't care for the way it was written.
And also, I didn't like how the name of the token black girl in the book (Indiamaca) was an anglicised version of the common igbo name Ndidiamaka. This was laziness on the authors part. If I was an Igbo woman making a novel with a token white girl called Natasha I don't think I'd call her N'Tasha to suit the syntax of the local demographic.
But I guess this kind of thing sells and the writer has to eat so...

I have read the first book in this series, but it's been a while. It didn't take me too long to get back into the story. Calypso, an American girl, goes to an all-girl's Catholic school in England. It's your typical story filled with girl drama. You have the mean girls, the cute boys, the bff's, the jealousies, the arguments, and so forth. It all works out in the end. Not a bad story, but definitely not memorable. C- rating.
Calypso is back for another term at St. Augustine's, and this time she is rooming with her archenemy Honey, instead of with her friends Star and Georgina. She can't choose which boy to text, Prince Freddie or older boy Billy, and her friends seem to have a new best friend, Indre, so Calypso is left jealous and alone. What's a girl to do?
Stealing Princes was a disappointment. I didn't enjoy the main character, she came across even more shallow and selfish than the first book, as did her friends. I was expecting humor, yet there wasn't any comedy and the plot mostly consisted of the main character whining. I wouldn't recommend this series.

less good but still fun though, the last pages were so cute :D
Joana (The Boundless Book List)
Seriously so disappointed. This had great ideas and could have been a really good book, but I just don't think it was executed properly. And honestly if someone asked me what this was about I couldn't even answer, it was so confusing.
This is a very good, don't want to put it down read. I think every teenage girl has had most of the same problems in this book, and every girl can relate to it on one level or another.
In the first book, Calypso's whining was endearing. This time she wore on my nerves. I just wanted to smack her. But I will read the next ones. They are laugh out loud funny at times.

This book fits inside of A Royal Match along with Pulling Princes. See that review.
I'm grading this book down because Calypso did some things that annoyed me - I expected better of her. However, everything's set right in the end, so how can I not enjoy it?
meh. the first was better, though it wasn't terrible. It took a while to read.... I kinda felt like I wasted my time. Not terrible, but not great.
Kind of embarrassed to say I read this. Just wanted a girly read and so I picked this up. Nothing that great, nice light and fluffy :-)

It was an funny read, but I did not liked it that much. I didn't read all the parts of the book, maybe I will later on.
I liked the first book better, but this one was still fantastic. Calypso was much less likable, but the plot was more sophisticated.
Veronica Widya
this book is much better than the fist one!!!
