Read a book with a royal term in the title.
We know that finding the book you need can be a royal pain. Do not fear. We are here to help! You could fulfill this challenge with any books including words like King, Queen, Prince, and Princess, but it could also include words like court, maid, and jester. Here are some ideas to get you started.

The Marsh King's daughterThe river of kingsKing Zeno

Why not start at the top? The Marsh King’s DaughterThe River of Kings, and King Zero all have royalty in the title without actually being about anyone on a throne.
