Royal romances are MY JAM so I was so excited to dive into Truly Madly Royally! This adorable #OwnVoices novel is perfect for your end-of-summer reading lists! What stood out the most, was Zora’s strong narration. I loved all of her humor and how she takes no BS. Truly Madly Royally prides itself as being #OwnVoices and it provides valuable representation for those looking to see themselves in a fun rom-com. If you’re a fan of royal romances, you’re going to want to pick up Truly Madly Royally.

I read and loved the Legend trilogy years ago and decided to read the graphic novel adaptations to refresh my memory for the upcoming Rebel. I loved the art, which really brought the setting alive. The story itself refreshed my memory of the main events and characters but it seemed as many details were left out. I would recommend these adaptations for someone who has already read the original series as the details fly by so you might not connect to the characters as much.

    I thought Truly Madly Royally was adorable too, and Zora was a total star. Probably the best thing about the book for me.
