Really loved and adored this book by Meg Cabot. "Princess Diaries" is funny and romantic at the same time. Perfect book for teenage girls.

You can actually learn a lot from this book, if you are a teenage girl who is tired of your family yelling at you or sick in bed because you have hemorrhoid problems. Haha, I'm just kidding. I think Princess Diaries is the first serial book I have read. I learnt several important things from this book:
1. You should be more responsible for something that you lo...more

Recommends it for: Those who loved the Princess Diaries movies :)
Loved loved loved the series overall.
Mia was entertaining and interesting throughout and I loved reading her diary entries.
I never got to read the 9th book of the series (my public library was apparently missing that one book to the series T.T), but I liked the ending to the series nevertheless. They were, surprisingly, much different to the movie version of Princess Diaries and now I love both movie version and book form all the same. :)
My all-time second favorite series as a teenager after Harry Potter. I got into the series by reading the second novel first, and I was hooked. Most of the problems Mia face, with her parents, friends, school, fitting in, peer pressure, bullying and of course sexuality, is unconventionally realistic and genuine. However, the hook of the series is that this is written in a very tongue-in-cheek, comical manner, making fun of and satirizing pop culture, materialism and even popular romance tropes....more

The Princess Diaries books by Meg Cabot are definitely one of my favourite chick literature series! Not only is Meg Cabot's writing wit+charm simply marvellous, Princess Mia has been a crazy, funny, lovely and wholesome character right from the start. There's just something about her life; her loves (oooh, Fat Louie); her ranting, presented through her journals; her shy and awkward nature. Just being a teenager! There are definitely a lot of LOL-moments in here (not to mention, some serious grow...more
Well, I started listening to this series because I saw that they were narrated by Anne Hathaway, and I loved her in the movies. Turns out the books are drastically different from the movies. Let's just say they would not be Disney-approved. :) Cabot's teenage-girl voice is so very authentic, and Mia is downright hilarious. But there are also lots of vulgar parts, and sometimes the subject matter is just too "adult" for this adult. Faults aside, I would give some of the books (there are more than...more

Recommends it for: Girls, Junior High-High School, Young Adults
As some other reviewers have pointed out, the content of the books is more mature than that of the movies. Others have noted that the central character shows no growth. Another popular complaint: the books are not works of literary genius. Regardless of these "flaws", I cannot get enough of the antics of Mia Thermopolis. Meg Cabot does not need to write like a Bronte to produce great fiction. I certainly feel less depressed after reading one of her novels than I did after plodding through Jane E...more
I was Mia's age when I read this series so I only have positive things to say about it. I loved it enough to finish the 10 books and I didn't regret the hours of sleep I lost, the amount of home works I didn't finish and the number of quizzes I barely passed. I loved it more because Anne Hathaway was lovely and Robert Schwartzman was my crush.
There's something so adorable in these books that makes you smile the whole time while reading them. Maybe it is written for younger readers, but I still enjoyed Mia's I-don't-want-to-be-a-princess adventures and Meg's sense of humour. :-)
Fell in love with book one and couldn't stop reading.
These books were the only things I read when I was 13 years old. I only stuck around for Michael, since he seemed to be the smartest of the bunch. Lilly had my respect, but then lost it with her incessant need for attention. All in all, a good representation of what went through my head when I was a young teen.
One of my all time favourite book series! Even though I read this as a 12 year old, I can still re-read this series over again because Meg Cabot's humour is so hilarious that I literally laughed out loud in each book.
I really hate every single book in this series--they all read like an idle 1997 IM chat session between two 13 year-olds. No matter how old Mia gets it's still the same tone, no growth or maturity.

I don't care what you say. Michael Moscovitz is the reason I appreciate nice boys even today. God bless Cabot. Just for this.
The best company for a teen girl. You can't stop reading it. And michael is just perfect.
I loved reading these books. Mia's dramatic personality and crazy grandmother-xD
