When I sat down on the couch tonight with this book, I was honestly just planning on reading a few pages. . NOT the entire book for sure in one sitting . This is my first time rereading this book, but it had been so long I had forgotten most of it! I was so happy that Micheal was a bigger part since he's one of my favorite characters. It was really odd to start it and have it take place almost two years after the last (since most of them take place almost immediately after the events of the prev ...more

My review, in numbered format:

1. I still don't like Lilly very much.
2. Tina and Lana are awesome.
3. Mia is an idiot (although a lovable one).
4. Meg Cabot did not need 383 pages to tell this story.
5. Grandmere is hilarious.
6. Meg Cabot should have resisted the urges to include the pop culture references, for they will be sadly dated very soon.
7. The twist with Mia's dad at the end is priceless.
8. Michael is awesome, as is his final text message.

During the release of almost every book in the series, I've been the same age as Mia, so I could almost always relate to what was going on. But this book in particular made me feel like I failed as a 17/18 year old. Looks like the whole "royal heir to the throne of Genovia" thing got to Mia's head - she might as well be Lana Weinberger. Could be that I am too old to read these now... but no longer is she the lovable nerd that drew me into the first 6 or so books. This series amused me during my ...more
For the first time in what feels like an incredibly long while, I finished a book in less than a day. I stayed up until past 2 am reading this!

And really, Mia does not disappoint with her last. She could frustrate you, but in a way that's kind of amusing... And, I can't explain why, but I found myself crying at some points. Or at least getting teary-eyed. I could relate to some of her experiences.

The major reason why I'm giving this book a five is because, in all honesty, it's been a while since

And Mia's journey through high school is complete. I really liked how this one turned out. I was happy to see Mia's growth and, as she likes to say, self-actualization! Lol

And that pretty much sums up Meg Cabot’s last and final instalment in the hugely popular Princess Diaries series.

PROS: Mia or should we say Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo is at the tail-end of her senior year. She has mastered the reluctant art of being a princess of a small European Principality, Genovia. She

(But if you don't want to know about the book, why are you reading reviews of it on Good Reads anyway?)

1)Mia graduates high school--finally after 10 books (!)

2)Michael comes back and Mia and he get back together

3)Mia finally sleeps with him--but Meg Cabot is crafty enough to disguise the scene as a page from the bodice ripper that Mia writes.
And of course, it's superfantabulous, the best sex ever. Yeah, right...

4)The bodice ripper is (really) actuall

Princess Mia is back in the final installment in the PRINCESS DIARIES series. Mia is ending her senior year and life couldn't be more stressful! Where will Mia go to college? Is her boyfriend, J.P., the one? Will Michael ever return from Japan? And will Mia survive turning eighteen? What's a princess to do?

I have enjoyed the PRINCESS DIARIES series ever since I read the first book and always enjoy escaping into Mia's world. I

In this books all the secrets come out. When i picked up this book i couldnt put it down. i was happy about the fact that mia ended up with michael instead of J.P I also liked the fact that Lilly and Mia forgave eachother and are best friends again
OK, this is a bit like one of those Oscars that a veteran actor gets for a movie that they actually had a small part in, because the committee is really giving it for their whole body of work. I did really like this book, but it's not my favorite. It's clear that Cabot is winding up all her plot threads, which leaves less time for some of the laugh-out-loud funny moments or over the top Grandmere schemes that are so great in the other books in the series.

And she doesn't exactly wind up *all* the
Some can complain that this last installment was predicable, but I say: so what? It ended they way it was supposed to end and I am happy about it. I enjoyed the book very much, the ending was true to previous books in the series and extremely satisfying (unlike another YA series: Breaking Dawn anyone?).
Ugh. And there is really no defense for this series' continued existence through ten indistinguishable books.

If I was to give my initial rating after reading this one it would be A++++++, however, once I sit on this book I feel a little differently. There are some definite structural issues with Forever Princess and I really think the series would’ve been better with an additional book or taking one of those sophomore slump books out and making a book that took place in late junior early senior year.

It’s just really hard for me to buy Jia as an established couple whe
Thank god it's finally OVER. Now I can relieve myself of this infernal teenage book series.

Mia is ridiculously obtuse but I forgive her. Michael Moscovitz has been beyond dreamy to me since I was like 13 so this was some major wish fulfillment. (Not as much as Royal Wedding is going to be, though.)

With a sick kid at home, I needed a break from the brooding atmosphere of Drood. The tenth and presumably final volume in the Princess Diaries series fit the bill.

Meg Cabot is brilliant. I really admire the way she has brought her young and immature character to adulthood. Mia really is growing up, and unlike the Disney version, Mia is still a strong feminist, a sexual being, and a romance writer, and it all works so well.

Good ending to a strong series. Mia grows up nicely.

Oh God!!! When AM I going to stop giving 5 stars to EVERY book that comes my way? Maybe never, so I am not gonna bother about it, at least not right now...

Ok, now I know EXACTLY how I want my 'prince charming' to be. Thanks to Meg Cabot for introducing such a quixotic (in a positive way) character such as Michael Moscovitz. According to the description of characters, Michael was very desirable and could have found a date anywhere, on the contrary, Mia was pretty stupid (until the end) but they w
Huh. Why don't I have a review of this one when I have one of book 9? Well, anyway, I still like this a lot. EVERYONE IS SO GROWN UP.

And I've come around to being pretty excited for the new one, but this was a really good ending. Or anyway, a good wrap up of the high school years.

This is the last book in this series. I have all of them and have enjoyed them all very much. I will admit I'll kinda miss reading the further adventures of Princess Mia, but all good things have to come to an end eventually. I have other books that Meg Cabot has written and I do like them a lot, so I'll probably continue to buy them.
BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The interview thing. The "And I'll wait" thing. The Central Park thing. The after prom thing. The book's not perfect. JP is a complete idiot and a complete douche, and Mia was an idiot for staying with him. And she really copped out on the racier scenes, with those awful excerpts from "Mia's novel". But who cares about any of that? (view spoiler)

This was such a satisfying conclusion to our beloved Princess Mia series! It beautifully wrapped Mia's high school career, and was wonderful for those of who have been with the books since before they were movies! :) I remember the first time I found Princess Mia (in the very first princess diaries of course!) I was a freshman in high school too, she helped me to find more time to journal, and get my feelings out. I traveled steadily with her avaidly awaiting each book release through the second ...more
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up this book and saw that two years had passed between it and its predecessor. In this time, Mia has grown up quite a bit. She's far less annoying, less clueless, less... everything that irritated me. Unfortunately, around the 2/3 mark this change wore off and she was acting like the old Mia again. Sigh.

Best thing about this book? It got a huge response out of me. I was so ready for Mia and J.P. to break up, it wasn't even funny. Of course, the things tha

The way Mia grew up and matured (the way Meg Cabot developed the characters), it's very very impressive.

In the previous books, there are times that I really wanted to strangle Mia. But I realized that it was all part of her growing up. The fact that I had some sort of same experience with it, being 16 and all, helped a lot. And I still cringe at my childishness and naivety whenever I think about it. Back to Mia, I'm proud of the person she became in the final book.

Michael is a huge part of why I
