Title: The Uncommon Reader

This book was just lovely, to be honest. It’s a very bookish book, the perfect read for anyone who loves books. It also follows quite a sweet story, even if you’re not a monarchist.
In it, the main character is a familiar face: the Queen. She basically discovers a love for reading – and later, a love for writing – in a story that will have you chuckling at every turn. It also makes the Queen feel a little more approachable. Like when she’s got a book in her lap when she’s waving at people from the window of a car during a procession.
