I am back, back again with another amazing blog tour, this time for Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn!! Apart from binging through the From Blood and Ash series I got to read this fabulous book full of Princesses and fairy tales. I really couldn’t ask for a better book, I am obsessed! Just read on to see what I thought.

Thank you TheWriteReads and the author for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review and a spot on the blog tour.


When fairy tale obsessed Lottie Pumpkin starts at the infamous Rosewood Hall, she is not expecting to share a room with the Crown Princess of Maradova, Ellie Wolf. Due to a series of lies and coincidences, 14-year-old Lottie finds herself pretending to be the princess so that Ellie can live a more normal teenage life.

Lottie is thrust into the real world of royalty – a world filled with secrets, intrigue and betrayal. She must do everything she can to help Ellie keep her secret, but with school, the looming Maradovian ball and the mysterious new boy Jamie, she’ll soon discover that reality doesn’t always have the happily ever after you’d expect…

A thrilling world of parties, politics and bad ass princesses, this is the first book in the brand new series THE ROSEWOOD CHRONICLES.

My Review

Undercover Princess is the first instalment of The Rosewood Chronicles and I always have and always will be a big lover of Princesses and fairytales. So I knew without a doubt Undercover Princess would be the perfect book for me, and I wasn’t wrong. I immediately thought of The Princess Diaries and I couldn’t help getting excited to read on.

Since reading Bad Habits last year, I’ve become such a fan of boarding school settings and this book is no exception as the majority of the book is set in the majestic Rosewood Hall. I think the author described the whole school beautifully, I could really see myself being there. This just added to the many reasons of why I loved this book. It was great to see what subjects certain students excelled in or didn’t as it adds more to their characters and definitely makes it more realistic, but there were some things such as classes that were skipped over throughout. As the book went on, I become more and more intrigued by the super cute story and the mystery that started to be unveiled. It’s extremely hard to put down once you get lost in all the secrets of the Princess of Mardova.

Ellie has to be the star of the book for me with her fiery personality but her friendship with Lottie honestly gave such a joyous feeling. The development between them both is something to hold onto because what started out as a rocky start still led their friendship to blossom. I feel like I connected more with Ellie, not just because we have the same name but her dark, moody attitude really resonates with me. Similar to The Princess Switch films that came out a few years ago (which I also loved), Ellie just wants to be a normal girl and this is progressively shown through her rebellious actions and like I said before her moods.

Lottie is definitely the shy one of the two but continuously works hard to achieve what she wants. Just like she did when she was awarded the bursary to go to Rosewood Hall, the school she promised her mum she would get into. When a little lie escapes her and she doesn’t deny being the Princess of Maradova, it suddenly starts to escalate. I enjoyed her character even more as we got to know her and especially when Ellie helps her thrive and come out of her shell. One thing I loved about her character’s story is we basically get to see her live her dream that must’ve always seemed like a silly fairy tale for her. I mean who didn’t want to be a Princess at some point in their life??

Overall, Undercover Princess is a must-read if you love everything Princessessy and fairy tales with plenty of secrets. It’s perfect for the intended younger audience but also just as enjoyable if you are older. There wasn’t a moment that I didn’t enjoy and I am so excited to carry on the series to see what happens next!
