Fun read for girls about a King and Queen who need a princess so they hold a "Princess Game" to find one. This is a charming and lighthearted book that any little girl would love.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is not a particular type of book I am sure to reading. I usually read a variety of children's books with my nieces and nephews. This one was well written and a fun story. It is a book that can open up conversations about feminism and womanhood if a mother and daughter read it together. It was a fun and entertaining read, and I enjoyed it.

The moment I saw this cover, and read the title and blurb, I knew this was going to be an enjoyable read. But of course, I have a soft spot of cute princess tales anyway.

The heroine, Emma, is a hard working, down-to-earth girl, who knows what surviving in the 'real' world means. She's the oldest of a number of younger sisters and struggles with her father to keep them all fed. The fact that her father only wants her to enter the games so she can have free food fit wonderfully well into the pictu

What a fun fractured fairy tale! I love the humor! It really does include some laugh-out-loud moments. The book actually reminds me a bit of Princess Academy by Shannon Hale, but The Princess Games is more light-hearted.

I think what makes this book work the best is the different voices throughout. Each chapter changes point of view which gives a different insight to the games as they are going on. This helps with characteri

What do you do when you don't have a princess and you need one? When you make a promise to another kingdom who has a prince that your princess will marry? You hold the Princess Games.

The word has been sent throughout all the land for the fairest maidens along with their fairy godmothers to show at the kingdom. Will plain Emma with her bungling fairy godmother Louise get the win, or will the fair Laralyn with her ambitious fairy godmother and witch of a mother get it.

I found this book to be humor

A very short book, but thoroughly enjoyable! It's a quicker, less serious version of Keira Cass's Selection series. Geared toward middle school readers, it's humorous and has a fairy tale feel to it, but I would recommend it as a fun read for all ages.
Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.
