Princess for president!
Student body president, that is -- nominated by her power-mad best friend, Lilly. This is not how Mia imagined kicking off her sophomore year, but as usual, she has bigger problems to worry about, like Geometry. And now that Mia's one true love, Michael, is uptown at college, what's the point of even getting up for school in the morning? But the last

MICHAEL MOSCOVITZ YOU CHEEKY, CHEEKY BOY! ;)
Jessica (priceiswong)
Oh Mia... As I mentioned in my last review.. it's during this stage that I have to give these books 4 stages instead of 5 because of how annoying Mia can get. She's only 15.. I get it. It's just a bit harder to read now that I'm older. Still really enjoyed it and it definitely made me laugh! Really wanting to speed through rereading the rest so I can read A Royal Wedding when it comes out!!

I enjoyed this one. Thought Mia was a bit juvenile about the topic of sex (just her maturity level discussing it, not her choices). But I liked the student council election story. At this point I kind of want more Genovia/princess stuff and less high school but we shall see :)

Mia needs a proper Sex ED.

Well,this was a fun ride.Her relationship with Michael was so funny and awkward in this book & Lilly and Grandmère were actually pretty cool here.However,Mia was behaving REALLY naive & juvenile in this one.Also,I'm not really sure I'm on her side when it comes to Ms.Martinez.Everything else was really fun.(ᵔᴥᵔ)

Favourite quote:

"Do you know what you are looking at here, Amelia?" Grandmere is asking me.

Okay, so instead of whining that her boyfriend wasn't going to take her to his prom, this time Mia spends the book ignoring the fact that she has committed an international incident that's effecting her 'beloved' environment and disintegrating her countries' diplomatic relationship because she has "more important problems" - like the fact that she's struggling with her Geometry class, her teacher gave her a B and some constructive criticism on her first English assignment of the year and the fac ...more

Aaaaaahh! Adorei! A Mia está maravilhosa nesse livro! Esperando MUITO ela enfrentar a Lilly no próximo livro, pq peloamordedeus é a pior amiga do mundo. Ela passou de chata, pra irritante, pra má amiga e agora tentou USAR a Mia! Affff
Quero ver como vai ser ela e Michael agora q ele tá na faculdade! E espero muito q ela ouça mais a Tina do q a Lilly.

WHY do I keep reading these "Princess" books? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY??? Am I forgetting that

* These books are total fluff books with practically NO substance WHATSOEVER?

* They are intended for teenagers?

* I am no longer a teenager?

* I don't think I will let my daughter read them when she is a teenager?

* My curiosity was fully satisfied by the third book?

Well, maybe I'll let her read the first few. But probably not book four or five, and definitely not six. Yes, I get that it's supposed to be Mia's

See my entire binge read of this book and books 6-7 1/2 here.

Blah.

Besides, Princess in Waiting this is probably the most lackluster installment in the series. However, in retrospect I think Meg did an excellent job portraying a teenage girl. I hate to say it, when I was Mia’s age I probably acted a lot like her-though slightly less neurotic. And Teen Me is someone I really don’t want to be again.

That being said, I really wish there was more to this one. I could care less for either of the plots.

In case you were not aware, I LOVE The Princess Diaries series. I have read all ten books (approximately) a million times, and they are so near and dear to my heart. This series played a huge role in my life (and my sister’s life) as I grew up, and I’m just having a blast rereading them this year.

Princess in Training is actually one of my favorite books in the series—which, yes, I know it’s so meta to have favorite books in one of your favorite series.

Until the last few pages of the book, I was going to give this one star for the simple reason that I just did not like it. At all.

Some of my complaints (this is by no means a complete list):

*I need the adults in Mia's life to step up and start acting like the adults. When Mia came to her mother and was asking questions about sex, her mother probably should have pushed more and given Mia more information. It was CLEAR TO ME that Mia was not handling things well. I just really think Mia's mother s

I swear these just get better and better,as usual Mia is her stressed out assuming the worst about every situation self this time its the possible environmental disaster she has bestowed on genovia, feeling pressure to sleep with Michael or should I say "Do it" all the while dealing with an election presidency she didn't want to run in and a English teacher who seems bent on giving Mia B's instead of A Grades. Like the previous books Mia' s dilemma's are handled with humour and alot of love brin ...more

Around page 50, Lana Weinberger, Mia's mortal enemy, teased her that soon her college-going boyfriend would expect her, as she repeatedly put it, to Do It with him. Thus began Mia's outlandish, childish, freakish and all other kinds of ish presumptions about Michael and his manly man needs. What even...

This was a pretty great book in a (so far) shaping to be epic series.

Let me first start with the good things:

Mia is still awkward, but she does her best to fulfil her princess role, and you can see that she is getting better and better at it with each book. From a girl who didn’t want to be a princess, who refused to do princess stuff, she is now making decisions, helping out her people, and taking on her princess role. Of course, not always happily, but then again, I can understand that, you ha

Best part of this book: When Mia looked up her mom's ex using Yahoo! People Search. I'm not sure I even remember that.

Most surprising part: How often Mia actually said "sex". This it the Doing It book and I just remembered everyone calling it that all the time. And they certainly do, but it's not as excessive as I remember.

Fun fact: When this book was originally released, it came out a lot earlier in England than in the US (if I remember correctly, it was a mistake somewhere). I was in college a

In this installment, Mia starts to realize her own abilities and begins to stand up for herself. Yes, she is still uncomfortable in her own skin, worries over everything and has the same streak of putting herself down, but she is beginning to grow up. And that is good.
One of the best things so far about this series is that Mia does grow and change while still retaining her lovely self-effacing personality. Her thoughts and ideas are becoming more adult. She's beginning to be a tiny bit more self

I loved Mia's speech at the end but the entire Michael/Mia plot in this book made me super uncomfortable considering the fact that she's 15 and he's 18; he really didn't handle the situation the way I expected him to.

Just love this princess story.

The story described well about immature character coming from 15 years old girl name Mia Thermopolis. She has an overactive imagination, spontaneous, easy worried and super overprotecting with her little brother. Michael, Mia’s boyfriend somehow is an ideal type for boyfriend. He is so kind, romantic, supportive, patient, and well planned.

Its interesting to remind me about the school times especially the subjects. It can be so different in college which the funny pa

Recommends it for: Meg Cabot fans, anyone wanting to be reminded of their high school years.
Recommended to Julie by: I've read the previous Princess Diaries books.
I really do enjoy these books.

This one in particular made me realize something. In earlier books, I got a bit fed up with Mia for being so dense about certain things... but somehow, during this volume, suddenly I recalled with perfect clarity (and the advantage of hindsight) how COMPLETELY NAIVE AND CLUELESS I was at that age. I got worked up over all kinds of minor issues, completely read ridiculous things into the smallest comment or behavior, and generally was a giant idiot. Oh yes, that was

REQUIRED AUTHOR, ROMANCE
I couldn't handle this book. I've read silly books as a preteen so I thought I would do ok with this one, but it nearly drove me crazy. There was absolutely no plot, just the diary of a very selfish preteen girl with no real thought. All that happened was she nearly destroyed the ecosystem of her own country and seemed to think that it wasn't that big of deal, and she was afraid her college boyfriend would want to "do it." That was the entire novel. I have nothing good to

A re-read for the read-along with Alina.

This was another one of my least favourite from the series so far in this re-read. The only thing that kept me from giving it one star was a part of Mia's speech near the end.

Urrrgh. Mia dealt with the issue of sex far too immaturely for someone of her age. This book could have been a lot shorter if she'd talked to Michael in the first place and not just spent all her time worrying into her diary. If you can't talk to your boyfriend about your relationship then why are you in a relationship? This book put me off finishing the series for a long time. Oh, and the election/pop-culture thing? Really annoyed me. This book is very soon going to be very dated.

Now this one was better! I was reading this on the train today while on my way to college and I just could not keep a straight face during the chapter where Mia goes to Michael’s dorm room and meets his roommate. In fact, the entire entry she made in her journal while she was with Michael was just too damn funny and yes, incredibly awkward. I could see the faces I was making in the window in front of me but I just couldn’t stop.
Even when people started staring.

So, this is the one where Mia obse
