Review Of Red, White & Royal Blue Novel

I had heard a lot about this book. So, when my sister gifted me this for my birthday, I was beyond excited about it. And in this review of Red, White & Royal Blue, I will tell you how I felt about this book.

Firstly, let me tell you about the thing that attracted me the most – its cover and title. The title of this book is unique and suitable to the story. It tells us about Alex and Henry’s nations and their obstacles. I won’t give details about obstacles as it will be a spoiler, and I promised you a spoiler-free review. Also, the cover is attractive and intriguing. It captures your attention and makes you wonder about the story.

From the start, the story is very captivating – it catches your attention from page one and sets the mood for the rest of the book. Another thing about this book is this story is said from the third person’s point of view. And what I liked is how even though it was from the third person’s point of view, the author didn’t make the story feel emotionless or impersonal. I could feel every emotion the characters were going through. The writing style of the author was very good.

I also loved how she had represented the LGBTQ+ community. Many of the characters were part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Also, the plot of this book kept my attention till the end. It was funny, sarcastic, cute, and captivating. There were some twists I didn’t see coming at all – especially about how the book ended. I found the subplots interesting and engaging too. This book as well increased my knowledge of the history of the US.

I loved all the characters. The main characters were fabulous, and the side characters, as well, were amazing. The number of characters was perfect; not too many and not too less. I also loved the emails sent between Henry and Alex. There was nothing special about it, but at the end of the mail, there was always a quote related to their situation. Reading about this made me fall in love with them much harder.

So, overall, this novel Red, White & Royal Blue was an interesting, fun, and sarcastic read. I LOVED this book!!


If you’re looking for a cute, funny, romantic book that will always have a place in your heart, then this book is for you.
