Paper Princess (versione italiana) (The Royals Vol. 1) - Erin Watt

Questo libro è bello. Perché è trash al massimo livello. Non lo consigliere a nessun adolescente perché contiene i peggio insegnamenti e messaggi offensivi... troviamo:
- Un protagonista gorilla/maschio alpha che sa solo grugnire e fare lo stronzetto
- Fratelli... inutili?
- Easton = il re del trash e amico cazzaro che tutti sotto sotto vorrebbero avere 
- Donne viste come oggetti sessuali e trattate come bambole gonfiabili da portarsi a letto
- “Sembra talco ma non è, serve a darti l'allegria! Se l'assaggi o la respiri ti dà subito l'allegria!” (Droga... per chi non lo avesse capito o è troppo giovincello per ricordare Pollon)
- Suicidio trattato come... una cosa normale e ultima forma di fuga
- Depressione = normalità
- Stupri accettati e presi come scherzo divertente, come se fosse divertente drogare una ragazza e tentare di violentarla
- Denuncia per una violenza? No grazie!
- Padri assenti e indifferenti che si nascondono dietro il "Mia moglie è morta" lasciando che i figli diventino criminali 
- Soldi = Potere e #FanculoIPoveri
- Spogliarelliste viste come prostitute appestate ed esiliate dalla società
- Violenza e autolesionismo... perchè se un protagonista maschile non picchia la gente e non si ferisce facendosi picchiare non è figo
- Scommesse e gioco d'azzardo
- Bullismo
- Presidi che lasciano gli studenti ricchi a comandare la scuola
- Insegnanti inutili
- Brooke (e non quella di Beautiful T_________T) 
e... disagio, disagio e ancora disagio
Eppure... l'ho amato! Mi è sembrato nonostante i mille messaggi negativi di rivivere una puntata trash di The o.c e l'ho adorato! I protagonisti sono dei meme viventi e le loro interazioni sono così wtf da avermi fatto ridere per la metà del tempo. Vedere un tizio con 1000 figli che neanche sa badare ai suoi figli prendere in casa una nuova bocca da sfamare e dotata di vagina (in una casa di uomini in calore è l'ideale! Soprattutto se hai figli arrapati 24 ore su 24) e tutto perchè il Bff è morto, decidendo a caso di regalarle macchine, soldi, computer, cellulari e tutto con il monito "Studia e fai la brava bimba" è.... ridicolo! Per non parlare della protagonista che si spoglia per vivere spacciandosi nei club per 34enne! Cioè... una sedicenne che si spaccia per 34enne! WHY? In che mondo i servizi sociali non sono intervenuti? Bah
Il mondo dei Royal è un mondo fatato di disagio e trash che spingerà i lettori un po' più grandi a ridere come i pazzi! Il libro è così disagiato e senza senso da essere un so bad is so good, così brutto da essere bellissimo, è scorrevolissimo e scritto come ogni libro su Wattpad e questo lo rende ancora più bello! Che dire? LEGGETELO! Se amate tutto cioè che è brutto, i personaggi senza senso, gli eventi alla Beautiful... è pane per i vostri denti e un buon modo per passare un pomeriggio in caso contrario, girate al largo.
Sconsigliato agli adolescenti impressionabili... rischierebbero di vedere Reed come modello di principe azzurro quindi se avete figli/e adolescenti... bruciate il libro o l'ebook reader e non fategli leggere certe bestemmie!

The Princess of Baker Street
The Princess of Baker Street - Mia Kerick
The kids of Baker Street grew up playing together to the fanciful games thought up by Joey Kinkaid.  Joey was called the Princess of Baker Street since his games often included Joey in a princess dress being rescued by his best friend, Eric Sinclair.  Now, the kids of Baker Street are in Eighth grade and things have changed, the four friends have found themselves in separate cliques.  Eric has opted for the route of survival, especially since is mom isn't often around.  Eric hangs around with his friends on the soccer team.  Joey doesn't exactly fit in anywhere, he would much rather wear his mother's dresses to school than the button up shirts and slacks that his father insists on.  When Eric and Joey are paired as study buddies, their friendship rekindles.  However, when Joey begins to show up to school in girl's clothing, Eric's allegiance is divided between his friends and his need to fly under the radar.
 
Timely and relevant, The Princess of Baker Street reaches into the awkward, transitional years of middle school for a group of students, including the Joey who is realizing that he has always been a girl.  Told through Eric's point of view, the voices are sincere and realistic for eighth graders.  Everyone seems very self-concerned and are worried about where they will fit in.  Eric's journey is just as important as Joey's.  I felt for Joey as he dealt with an absent mother and the decision to be Joey's friend even if it would cost his popularity.  Eric's struggle with his feelings for Joey as he slowly comprehends that not only is Joey a girl, but that he has always seen Joey as a girl as well- a girl that he likes.  With these understandings comes big changes and responsibilities.  Not all of the changes are handled very well by everyone and reinforces that none of these issues should be handled by the kids by themselves.  Insightful and pertinent, The Princess of Baker Street is an important and heartfelt read that can be enjoyed by middle grade through adult readers.

Book Review: Elisabeth
Elisabeth: The Princess Bride, Austria - Hungary, 1853 - Barry Denenberg

Title: Elisabeth: The Princess Bride
Author: Barry Denenberg
Series: Royal Diaries
Format: Hardcover
Length: 151 pages

 

Synopsis: Author Barry Denenberg brings us into the whirlwind that is the life of Princess Elisabeth of Austria. A free and impetuous spirit, Elisabeth is chosen at the age of fifteen (over her older sister) to be the wife of Franz Joseph, Emperor of Austria. From that moment on, she is thrown into an intimidating world of restrictions and tremendous responsibilities. Feeling lonely and alienated, Elisabeth is forced to rely upon her own personal strength, which eventually leads her down the aisle and into an uncertain future.

 

Favourite character: Elisabeth
Least favourite character: Aunt Sophie
Favourite line: N/A

 

Mini-Review: I loved how at the end, the last 1/2 to 3/4 of the book was historical notes about the real Elisabeth, with pictures of her and her husband, other family members. I loved finding out that her husband’s nephew and heir was the Ferdinand who was assassinated and basically started World War I.

A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole $1.99!
A Princess in Theory: Reluctant Royals - Alyssa Cole

Between grad school and multiple jobs, Naledi Smith doesn’t have time for fairy tales…or patience for the constant e-mails claiming she’s betrothed to an African prince. Sure. Right. Delete! As a former foster kid, she’s learned that the only things she can depend on are herself and the scientific method, and a silly e-mail won’t convince her otherwise.

 

Prince Thabiso is the sole heir to the throne of Thesolo, shouldering the hopes of his parents and his people. At the top of their list? His marriage. Ever dutiful, he tracks down his missing betrothed. When Naledi mistakes the prince for a pauper, Thabiso can’t resist the chance to experience life—and love—without the burden of his crown.

 

The chemistry between them is instant and irresistible, and flirty friendship quickly evolves into passionate nights. But when the truth is revealed, can a princess in theory become a princess ever after?
