Really? Are you really gonna read the website!?

All the juicy bits are inside! A princess, Nightingale, is the first princess of record to lock herself away in a tower so that she can eat pizza rolls and play video games all day. Life is good until a sarcastic dragon shows up and tells her that she is supposed to get engaged by her eighteenth birthday. Tragic, right? Well, imagine how she feels.

So now men are coming from far and wide to ask for her hand, and probably a few other body parts, come to think of it.  She has no intentions of becoming the intended. Poor Nightingale, with the help of her new dragon friend, must thwart off the advances of thick-headed men who won’t take no for an answer.

Life would be so much easier if she wasn’t going to announce her acceptance of the title of princess at her birthday gala. Which she’s not. Because for Nightingale, being a princess is about as appealing as getting hitched to some dim-witted moron.

Can she figure this all out before her birthday? Only one way to find out. Click on one of the ‘cool’ buttons below and buy the book and witness this dumpster fire for yourself. Go ahead. I’ll be here when you get back.

This book was fantastic! An easy read, keep my interest throughout and made me chuckle at times! Loved it!!

Great book for my teenage daughter to read and relate to. She couldn’t put it down. This book would translate perfectly to a great movie.

A fun, humorous, and very relatable take on the journey every girl endures as she matures and tries desperately to find who she is and who she wants to be, and finding the courage to be that person even if it means deviating from society’s expectations. People come and go (and sometimes come back again), but those who matter stay and provide unwavering support…

This book is very cute and funny. I wish I had a book like this when I was a teenager, it would’ve helped me with being myself. Definitely something every youth should have.

It was the title that drew me in – a YA novel that focused on _self_-sufficiency? Maybe it would be different than the rest. There have been other books that have emphasized a young woman’s independence, of course, but what I discovered in this book is that the story of this particular woman’s free-spirited nature was written with attention to detail, clarity of thought, and, especially, a LOT of humor along the way…

The book was amazing! Life lessons that all teens should learn( and some adults reminded of) written in a way that was truly enjoyable. Many laughs throughout. When I was done reading I recommended to all my family and friends.

Our princess loves pizza rolls, first-person shooter games, and comfy clothes. She’s also not quite sure if she wants to be a princess.  I have a tendency to write short reviews for books I really enjoyed. The Self-Sufficient Princess is a book that you should dive into head-first without any expectations from reviews or summaries. The humor is unlike any other book I’ve read before, and I know that other women will find the princess’s “suitors” quite familiar.
