I am lucky to have the best sister ever, who keeps giving me books I love! She gave me Undercover Princess for my birthday back in November last year, and I finally managed to get to it. Thank you, sis!
Even though Undercover Princess has great resemblance to The Princess Diaries and The Princess Protection Program, this book is unique in its own way, and the story is v ...more
I think this is a major case of 'it's not me, it's you'.
Rosewood Chronicles tells the story of Lottie Pumpkin as she enters the privileged world of boarding schools at Rosewood Hall. Here she meets Ellie Wolf, secret princess of Maradova, and otherwise normal teenage girl. Together the two form a friendship as they fight to keep Ellie's true identity a secret - which might be more difficult than it sounds.
The writing for this was very clunky at best, with the descriptions and plot all ...more
I have never watched any of Connie's youtube videos and didn't realise she was a book tuber until I read a few comments before going into this book.
This book was okay. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. It was a quick and easy read to get through and I finished it within two sittings.
I saw Kate (Girl Reading's) review and I have to agree with it being all of the things she mentioned. It was like reading a disney original movie/tv show in a book form. It reminded me of ...more
This book is very obviously written by a YouTuber, and by that I mean, someone given a book deal for their audience, not their penmanship. The writing and plotting are messy and cringe-worthy, at times, despite how much love and heart there is in this novel.
I’m an absolute sucker for ...more
I'd probably give this to a girl who is around 10 years old because that's who I reckon would enjoy this kind of thing. It was a Princess/Rich Kids version of Harry Potter fan fiction but way less interesting, badly written and just.....blah. Very blah. I got 100 pages in and I wondered what the point of the story was, and it's a shame because it started off quite sweet.
All the characters were very clique, they weren't in the slightest bit interesting or entertaining, and very ...more
Let me start off by saying I went into this book thinking it might be a little young for me. Being the ripe old age of 26, however that was so not the case this book engrossed me so much I read it in one sitting. I loved the character development, the relationship between Ellie and Lottie was just so cute. I adored the entire concept of this book.
I was not expecting this book ...more
I have to admit I wasn't aware of Connie Glynn as a YouTuber but I don't believe this would have had any impact on my experience of the book had I known beforehand. I'm very levelheaded with reviews and am willing to take it as it comes - if I like a book I like it.
Lottie Pumpkin (yes a cute name) finds herself ...more

Undercover Princess is not just a funny story about a girl who pretends to be a princess so that her friend who is actually a princess can be safe from harm. It's a story about a naïve but very intelligent girl whose heart is so big and pure that she allows herself to be in danger so that her fri ...more
My copy was an ARC which I get means it’s not finished but the amount of spelling mistakes, missed words, cut off sentences, extra words and sentences that out right just didn’t make sense, made for really difficult reading! I’ve read many ARCs in the past and they’ve never been so poorly r ...more
First thing first i was really really excited to read this book. I mean come on princess's and private school and Mystery. It gave me such princess diaries, hex Hall and Hogwarts vibes. So when I got the email for reviewing I said count me the heck in.
Than when I got the book i got blown away by its prettiness. I love, love the arc. The front has a silhouette of a princess and has watercolors and has a big house castle silhouette on it. Anyway I am doing a sucky job of descr ...more
I didn’t dislike this book but neither did I love it. The plot was okay, it did have its moments where I will happily admit to being interested and I read the book fairly quickly but it just didn’t scream ‘READ ME’ or have anything that I found particularly gripping. In fact what the plot did for me was leave lots of unanswered questions and one of those was “Why did Lottie so desperately want to go to Rosewood Hall?”
I also ...more
Sorry not one for me. This was a book that had an interesting premise and the friendship part was done well. But had way to many YA tropes for me. I think if I were younger I might have enjoyed this but I found myself skipping parts just to get to the end.
Edit 30.10.17 actual rating 2.5
This is a cute story of friendship intertwined with a decent bit of mystery (albeit with an unsatisfying reveal), which is enough to keep the reader guessing and the plot moving forward. Lottie, Jamie and Ellie were all likeable main characters and their relationships were generally well written and explored nicely but I don't really understand Lottie and Ellie's friendship/relationship/whatever ...more
The book isn't officially released until the first week of November, so I natura ...more
Lottie and Ellie are polar opposites but quickly bond and become inseparable when some school gossip gets out of hand and they find a solution that works for both of them. I liked their friendship and the overall focus that was placed on female friendships throughout the book. Whilst there is a little romance (including LGBT), I liked that friendship was at the forefront and h ...more
You can tell it is a first book but it is by far not a terrible one, to the people moaning the first Harry Potter wasn't great but it improved.
I saw a review moaning about not enough character development from Ollie but what i think is Ollie will have more importance later in the series. I like the characters and i love the schools Connie has created, she even shocked me by having a character i loved turn ba ...more
Part of me is like come on, there’s less than 100 pages left, but the other part has been like, girl you wanted to DNF this at chapter three. Put it down.
It’s been a while since I read something nice and light like this. I had somehow assumed the main characters would be a bit older teens though so it took me a moment to get used to the fact that they’re actually 14!
Undercover Princess was a little weird to me in that I actually enjoyed it but it also had some obvious issues, like the writing not being that great. Lottie and Ellie’s friendship was really sweet I kinda got the vibe that it may deve ...more
-the book felt very cliche and childish, and not in a good way
- the characters were very boring and overly-sweet
-the so-called ‘rebellious princess’ was like, not rebellious at all. ...more
Just like reading the book made me very happy. The book is for sure a very light read. If you go in there for the mystery and the danger, you will probably be disappointed. If you however go in there for the friendship (or more?) bet ...more
but boy did I have some ISSUES
I HATE Jamie. I suppose towards the end he was somewhat redeemed, but he was so unnecessarily rude.
Lottie was SO naive and it annoyed me so much. normally I'm okay with a bit of that in books but this was next level. so many stupid decisions were made.
This whole book was also very cliched, although it is a princess story so I will forgive that. but the writing was so ...more
This is the first in a new series and I think there is plenty more to the story and to the mystery ...more
