20+ Royal Reads

affiliate disclosure

I’m a sucker for books with royalty in them. If the story takes place in a castle, has a fabulous prince or princess (even in disguise) it’s likely I’m gonna want to read it.

Great (most) YA reading list full of books with royalty and castle settings. SO fun!

When I heard that the theme for this month’s Owl Crate (bookish subscription box I get) was Royalty I got SUPER excited. My box came in the mail last week but I have been patiently waiting to open it because I want to do an unboxing live on my FB with my sister. So in conjunction with all that we decided it would be a blast to share our favorite Royalty books. You can watch the full video below just remember it was originally a FB live vid.

The royalty in these books are varied, some are main characters, some are formal royals, some are side characters but somewhere in each of these is a prominent prince or princes or queen or king, well you get what I mean. Each title to an Amazon so if you’re interested you can read the official synopses and of course see the title for each of them!

20+ Royalty reads. Lots of awesome YA books with royal characters, castle settings, etc. Some of my all time favs.
My sister and I pretty much agree that all of these books are awesome and have royalty aspects. We each picked our top 3 and I bolded them for you guys. But you’ll have to watch the live or replay video to see who said which ;) There are only a handful I personally haven’t read and I’m staring them (these are ones my sister loves though). Also all of these are YA except for the one’s that I’ve added the + sign too and these are still fun just intended for more mature readers!
