Waiting on Wednesday: Truly Madly Royally by Debbie Riguad

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where we highlight some of the upcoming books we can't wait to read! 

Title: Truly Madly Royally
Author: Debbie Rigaud
Publisher: Scholastic
Paperback, 304 Pages
Publication Date: July 30th, 2019

Summary: Fiercely independent and smart, Zora Emerson wants to change the world. She's excited to be attending a prestigious summer program, even if she feels out of place among her privileged, mostly white classmates. So she's definitely not expecting to feel a connection to Owen, who's an actual prince of an island off the coast of England. But Owen is funny, charming...and undeniably cute. Zora can't ignore the chemistry between them. When Owen invites Zora to be his date at his big brother's big royal wedding, Zora is suddenly thrust into the spotlight, along with her family and friends. Everyone is talking about her, in real life and online, and while Owen is used to the scrutiny, Zora's not sure it's something she can live with. Can she maintain her sense of self while moving between two very different worlds? And can her feelings for Owen survive and thrive in the midst of the crazy? Find out in this charming romantic comedy that's like The Princess Diaries for a new generation.

A romance book involving secret royals?? Count me IN. I am an absolute sucker for stories like this -- in fact, it was recommended to me when I Tweeted last month, asking if anyone had any royal romances! So, needless to say, this book will definitely be in my hands as soon as it becomes available because I'm all for any sort of remake of The Princess Diaries, plus this book just seems so dang cute that I want it RIGHT NOW. Can't wait for July to roll around!

What are you waiting on this week? Leave your links so I can stop back! 


  1. No waaay! Super excited to see TRULY MADLY ROYALLY spotlighted here. Thank you! You're all invited to both Appleton, NJ (Zora's hometown) and Landerel (Owen's homeland), anytime! :-)

  2. Not my typical choice of book, but it looks so cute! Sometimes it's nice to enjoy a relaxing, easy read.
