Royalty Rules Reading Challenge

The Magic of Ink is hosting a reading challenge from February 1rst through April 30th 2008. It is called Royalty Rules. Here are the rules for the challenge:

Rules: Read two, three, or four books of whatever genre you choose, whether you want to read about historical kings, modern queens, or fairytale princesses. The only parameter is that the books have are about a royal personage, although not necessarily as the main character. It’s perfectly all right if you want to read a book about, say, the queen’s lady-in-waiting, as long as the story incorporates the rise and/or fall of a crowned head, or a sovereign’s entire life.

I'm thinking for my list to read at least two of the following:

Enchantment by Orson Scott Card
Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunch (I'd love, love, love to receive a review copy of this!!!)
Princess Ben by Catherine Murdock (I'd love, love, love to receive a review copy of this one as well!!!)
Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor
The Lost Queen by Frewin Jones

I'd be especially interested in reading any new-ish (2007, 2008) children and YA books. Particularly novel adaptations of fairy tale princesses (princes, kings, queens, etc.)

Have you read "The Goose Girl" by Shannon Hale. Great fairy tale adaptation with kings, queens, and other family members.
