Royal Reads | Queens

I feel like I’ve been reading a lot “Royal Reads” lately, mostly because I seem to really enjoy a lot of high fantasy! A lot of my recent reads have featured some royal titles of King, Queen, etc so I thought it would be fun to put together a mini-series of some of my favorite “Royal Reads”!

Today, we’re talking Queens. There are so many badass ladies out there and some of my favorite ones are queens! It’s been a trend, especially in YA lately, and it should be a fun one to explore!


QUEENS OF GEEK by Jen Wilde

QUEENS OF GEEK was a recent read for me and so much fun! I loved the realistic characters, great friendships, and fun Con vibe!

THE QUEEN OF ATTOLIA by Megan Whelan Turner

THE QUEEN OF ATTOLIA may not have been my favorite of this series but it was also quite interesting! It really set things into motion after THE THIEF and I did end up liking Attolia in the end.

THE IMPOSTOR QUEEN by Sarah Fine

I had a little bit of a slow start with this one but loved it in the end!! I didn’t quite love the sequel (I actually DNFed it…. oops) but I did like where this book went and the ending had a great feel to it!

QUEEN OF SHADOWS by Sarah J. Maas

QUEEN OF SHADOWS was one of my top top reads of 2015… and then my relationship with Sarah J. Maas fell apart after this. I did love the characters and world in this book and thought it was so well done!

RED QUEEN by Victoria Aveyard

I didn’t think RED QUEEN was theย best read but it was entertaining and had some big twists! I do wish it had been a stand-alone because I really had a hard time with the sequel and think it just fell off from there.

BEAUTY QUEENS by Libba Bray

BEAUTY QUEENS was one of my first audiobooks and I loved that it was narrated by Libba Bray herself! It was also interesting to read a satirical novel, which isn’t something you find a lot in young adult! Some moments weren’t my favorite (just a little too silly at times) but it was very clever so interesting!

Royal Reads | Kings

I feel like I’ve been reading a lot “Royal Reads” lately, mostly because I seem to really enjoy a lot of high fantasy! A lot of my recent reads have featured some royal titles of King, Queen, etc so I thought it would be fun to put together a mini-series of some of my favorite “Royal Reads”!

Today, we’re talking Kings. Real kings, fictional kings, kings of imaginary worlds… doesn’t matter — I love ’em all!


THE RAVEN KING by Maggie Stiefvater

Naturally one of my first thoughts is THE RAVEN KING. The Raven Cycle is one of my all-time favorite series and just this title along evoked a lot of feelings! It’s definitely unique, totally magical, and a wonderful series full of amazingly in-depth characters.

THE WICKER KING by K. Ancrum

THE WICKER KING ย was a very interesting read! The book was very well put-together in structure and in plot and the pacing was incredible! I definitely didn’t want to put it down at any point and I think this will be a big buzz-book in the fall!

THE KING OF ATTOLIA by Megan Whelan Turner

I still haven’t written my reviews yet for the Queen’s Thief books but I binge read them on audio and had such a great time listening to them! THE KING OF ATTOLIA is smack in the middle of the series so I can’t say much about it specifically but it’s a really interesting series in its structure and where it takes the reader!

THE WAY OF KINGS by Brandon Sanderson

I’m determined to read all of Brandon Sanderson’s works and I finally stared on The Stormlight Archive. If I thought a 600 page book was a little intimidating, it had nothing on these 1000+ page books. THE WAY OF KINGS was different than what I had expected but I’m so curious about the next book! I’m hoping it has a bit more development and I can’t imagine it won’t with where this left off!

A CLASH OF KINGS by George R.R. Martin

And what kingly feature would be complete without one of the most epic throne battles, A Song of Ice and Fire? It’s already been so long since I’ve read the books (well, I guess not as long as some people but a few years for me already, somehow!) and I need to catch up on the TV show. I’d love to re-read these someday but maybe the show will have to suffice for reliving these books again!
