Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston ** text

In general, I find that buying more copies of one book is well stupid. I find it such a big capitalistic thing. I love books, I have so many. It’s all paper, isn’t it? That is in fact not very good yet I love to read. But then to buy 4 or 5 of the same book while you can only read one at a time. I understand if you need a copy for class and you want to write in that but overall I think it is so unnecessary. Yet, I did what I never thought I would do. I have two copies of this book. I cannot explain fully why I came to that decision. This book had such an effect on me and the collector’s edition is simply so incredibly pretty that I couldn’t leave it. Let’s get into the story.

The book in short
First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations. The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince.
As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?
I got this information here.

My thoughts
Do you remember the first time you saw a romantic comedy? Or the first time you read one of those roman’s novels your mum used to read on holiday. Or those stories that you borrow from a friend. The feeling that starts in your stomach when the main characters meet, the smile that cannot seem to leave your face when they fall in love. That feeling , this book gave it in ten folds. No matter the stakes, you want these people to get together.

Alex is a horrible human he is so full of himself, he thinks he is amazing. Yet, I do like him. I do not have a problem with a book not being in our reality but his mum is in her first term and then the prince. If you are the youngest you are not the heir. It didn’t make sense he is the fourth in line. He isn’t even the spare his sister is.Which good on this universe to do that. If his brother and sister both get one child each he would be the fifth in line at that point you are not really even getting paid to be royal. The book is so funny, so incredibly witty. If you make outwit. Guy and I find the way Alex think through hi sesxuality and the ideas he has about his own sexuality so interesting to read. It was wonderful to really get into his mind and go through his thought process. The book is simply happy. I found a kindred spirit in Alex dentified so much with Alex. He is oblivious through life as I am. I have never read that before. He is obviously very smart but also very oblivious as as a person that has been laughed at by her friends for well… appearnlt not noticing obvious things.

I do hate the cover though, Alex is half Mexican and he is described as being a bit darker skinned and looking Mexian. The boy on this cover is my skin colour. He is a darker shade of white, yet I would classify that as white where the Henry character looks pasty white. I really love the protugese cover it looks so much closer to what I imagine him to look like. I do feel it’s an adult book, there are erotic things in this. I bought the book in England in the fiction section. Why did I find it here (I was on the hunt for the special edition) in the YA section. I strongly feel it is far too mature for 12 year olds.

It surprised me so much that I loved it as much as I did. It is so witty, and just simply so good. There was something about the story that I thought I would love but in a way, I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy it as I usually.

I cannot describe why I love his book so much when I finished I wanted to re-read it right away and I told myself I wasn’t allowed to. I lasted for a week and I did do not much reading after that. After that I

I was reading it and it suddenly hit me. How can this be wrong? How can anyone think this is wrong? This is the way I have been raised. I have been raised with the idea that it doesn’t matter and that love is love. The values I took from my parents is that it is not our place to have an opinion on what someone else does, or who someone else love. Love is something we never even have to go in dept just is. I grew up with gay marriage being legal and gay relationships on tv and it never made a difference. It is such a struggle in my mind that people out there think it isn’t right. For me, this book is so pure and lovely. And I just enjoy the story for what it is and there is no difference if Alex was Alexandra or Henry was Henrietta. In my brain just doesn’t compute it suddenly hit me like huh
This book feels the way it feels to be in love. I really do like the emails in this book normally I hate that but in this book, I do really enjoy it as it makes sense for them. Also, the stupidest thing you can do really. I mean honestly, everyone will find out
