Guys, Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston is so. freaking. good. I started it and then couldn’t put it down until I had completely devoured the entire thing.
Alex is the son of the US president, Henry is a prince of England–SHENANIGANS ENSUE. Enemies to lovers, a ruse, forbidden love, and so much delicious, delicious ANGST. I just CANNOT.
This book is sweet, charming, adorable, and hilarious. I laughed out loud and startled my cat multiple times.
It hit me right in the Texas feels. It made me hopeful again. And it unbroke a little piece of my heart. I didn’t know I needed this book, but I NEEDED it. (Stories have power, and don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.)
Also, it has one the best lines ever: “Stop trying to Jane Austen my life!”
Also, Zahra is a goddamned treasure.
Drop whatever you are doing and go read it RIGHT NOW. It will brighten your entire life.
PS. Someone make this into a movie immediately.
