If you’re looking for some light, joyful reading in these crazy times, I wanted to give a hearty recommendation to the Reluctant Royals series from Alyssa Cole — the heroines are always smart, funny, modern women. The first book in the series (pictured) is particularly funny — the heroine is in grad school (for chemistry, if memory serves) and she keeps getting emails that she’s betrothed to an African prince, which she chalks up to spam. Except… it’s the truth. When the prince comes to America to retrieve her, she mistakenly thinks he’s a poor grad student like her… and hilarity ensues. (And OOH, I didn’t realize the third book in the series is just about to come out — I know what I’ll be doing this weekend… The second book was really good, too!) You can check the series out at Amazon, Target, Bookshop, or your local library.
