Princess in Waiting (The Princess Diaries #4)
Nor have her own subjects, for that matter. Mia's royal introduction to Genovia has mixed results: while her fashion sense is widely applauded, her position on the installation of public parking meters is met with resistance.
But the politics of bureaucracy are nothing next to Mia's real troubles. Between canceled dates with h ...more
More lists with this book...
Least favorite so far in the series. Mia took a drastic turn in this book and was pretty obsessed with a boy and nothing else. Granted, she is 14 years old so it's understandable to a point, but she was a bit melodramatic in this one. Still enjoyed overall and will continue the series though!
"How do I know Michael hasn't met some other girl?
Some Floridian girl, with long,sun-streaked hair, and a tan,and breasts? Who has access to the Internet and isn't cooped up in a palace with her crazy grandma,a homeless,Speedo-wearing prince and a freakish,hairless miniature poodle?"
I missed The Princess Diaries so much!I loved reading about Mia's adventures in Genovia and Grandmère's schemes.Also,love the movie refrences-Meg Cabot sure knows how to make her readers laugh!
"Hello," Lilly said....more
Because even a princess has to have fun sometimes.
'The Princess Diaries: Mia Goes Fourth' is a short but delightful read. I loved reading this novel and I'm looking forward to picking up the next book in the series! ^ ^
On a whole another note: I love Chris Pine in Princess Diaries 2 (the movie) :D
Quero mais Michaeeellll!!
And there was more to the rest of it than I remembered. I liked seeing Mia in Genovia. Back in the day, I was just eager for her to get back to Micha ...more
After reading the first book in this series I went to the library and just happened to see the rest of the books (11 of t ...more
I just thought Princess Mia complained a lot in this book. She always said she had no idea how they ended up together, and that she missed Michael a lot, especially now that they're continents apart, but ho ...more
Mia spends most of the entire book (which only spans a few months) being paranoid or a big mouth.
I wonder if I was this annoying when I was 14. If I was I certainly wouldn't have written it down for anyone to find and read. Who goes into their boyfriend's bathroom to for a half hour afterwards to write about their amazing d ...more
Hey, let’s play a game. What game, you ask? Simple; "Come up with an alternate, better name for the book you have just read!”. I love this game. Here are my top three names for Princess in Waiting:
1- Princess in the Psychotic Ward
2- Princess Completely Demented
Hilariously Infuriatingly Stupid Princess
Let me tell you something. The whining was totally controlled and balanced. Mia complained about everything but in a limited and well-proportioned capacity. That’s supposed to be good, right? Wel ...more
This won't be a long review, I just want to throw out my frustrations regarding this book.
Let me start that I was completely, and utterly confused at the beginning of the book. Normally everything, and anything is mentioned to great details, but in this one, sudd ...more
meh. Mia really got on my nerves on this one. She is so insecure about her relationship with Michael and way too panicky about every thing.
She also comes up with too many worst case scenarios.
I also got annoyed with her because she was self-contradictory. She worried about misogynistic undertones in Michael's band name but she likes it when Michael takes on an authoritative air and bosses her around! Get a grip Mia! Aside from being so weak and despicable, Mia is supposed to be the princess. ...more
Do I have to?
If I was reviewing books when Princess in Waiting came out, I’d probably give up on The Princess Diaries series. This is my least favorite book in the series and I really think it was a waste of space-if you would’ve added some of Valentine Princess to it I think it would’ve been a stronger book.
The good thing about this particular installment, was I sort of knew what I was getting into when I reread it, so I didn’t ...more
1a. If you haven't figured it out yet, once I read one book in the series, I have to read the entire series.
2. I like that someone managed to write a teen series without explicit sex and use of profanity. I'm fine with explicit sex and profanity, and I know that's part of the world today, but come on. It doesn't always have to be used. ( ...more
"There was a DJ who stayed up for eleven days straight, the longest recorded period of time anyone has ever gone without sleep, and he started playing nothing by Phil Collins, and that's how they knew it was time to call the ambulance."
It's like me and Meg Cabot are besties, because Phil Collins is THE WORST.
Ah crap, now I'm starting to write things like M ...more
Also, I see that people complain that all the book is Mia obsessing about Michael and saying how much she missed him. What were you expecting to find in the diary of a 14 yo girl?
Still, it's a fun read and I enjoy Mia's voice.
It's difficult remembering that Mia is fourteen because I keep expecting her to act like an eighteen or nineteen year old. In all honesty, her thought process (crazy as it is) isn't all that different to what I was like at fourteen. I really wish that I had these books when I was that age to be like "Look, Monica, you're not completely crazy!" I do wish that there was less "OMG MICHAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and more "I like writing. I'm good at writin ...more
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun ...more
