Mia was insufferable in this one but I still love this series SO MUCH. Luckily Michael was perfect as per usual.
just read the other reviews. i'm tired of typing. and trying to spell things correctly.
I'm reading this series in preparation for the Royal Wedding, the first adult novel about Mia, which is coming soon. I didn't start this series as an adolescent so my take on it is different then teen readers, but I think Cabot does have the emotions and hopes and dreams just right, or as I remember them anyway. The Prom is a big deal when you are in high school. And Mia wants to go.
Even though she sees that she's lucky and most of her life is, at least for a moment, going well, she is pining f

What I Remembered:

Really hating Lilly in this installment and not really feeling Toris.

What I Got:

Really hating Lilly. Finding Toris a lot more tolerable and believable. And finding Mia almost as intolerable as Lilly in this installment.

In fact, if I wanted to, I could have a drinking game every time Lilly or Mia annoyed me. I get that they’re fourteen/fifteen year old girls, but both of them need a good swift kick in the pants to rea
Ack, this was dreadful. I don't suppose it helps that I read it right after Pride and Prejudice, but even so. I know it's meant for children, but the previous four weren't this bad.
In desperate need of escapism I turned to rereading this book today and I must say it delivered marvelously. It has everything you could ever hope for in a book of its genre and MORE: family drama, pregnancy, betrayal, lots of humor, and even a proletariat uprising. It is like a chaste telenovela (the pregnancy is Mia's mother's). The central question of this book is: Will Mia go to the prom with her boyfriend or NOT?! You would think that this would be a fairly easy question to resolve but as i ...more
I love these books & am reading them all from the library. Will Mia go to the prom with Michael & will her heavily pregnant mother embaress her by telling everyone about how often she has to pee?
This book plot was Mia trying to get Michael to go to prom with her. It was kind of like her ranting throughout the book by page 200 it was getting old. Still somewhat funny

Recommends it for: whiny teenage girls
Whine whine whine whine whine. Bella out of Twilight is a better narrator than Mia. Still, we can draw some similarities, can't we? Both stories start out with precarious yet vaguely original ideas (high school princess/vampire boyfriend) and both get sidetracked with unrelated, self-absorbed rants that completely murder any potential plot or action (why won't he take me to prom/why won't he make me a vampire). You get the gist of it. I didn't have much of a problem with either series until they ...more

Meg Cabot captures what a girl thinks when it comes to prom. From the perfect dress to the overall perfect details of the night. Mia, the main character, is relatable in some ways because for one thing she bases her expectations of prom off of movies.I like to think that I do that too and for me if I can relate to a character than I feel more connected to a story. "Princess in Pink" is also one of those books where you don't have to read multiple books in the series to understand that one book. ...more
Oh Mia. I did feel more sympathy for her this time through. It IS hard, sometimes, when you're a teenager (and sometimes when you're older!) to say, "Hey, I like this thing" when someone you love doesn't like it. IN FACT, it takes, say, self-actualization, to learn how to do it. (Not a ton of sympathy for her about the summer in Genovia thing, though. Yeah, that's a commitment you should follow through on.)

And WOW. I forgot how awful Lilly is to Boris. I'm glad the book calls her on that and on

The book" Princess in Pink(The Princess Diaries, #5) is published by the New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot. The genre of this book is realistic fiction because I think that the characters are made up in story. It is realistic fiction because in the book there are many incredible things happening all at one time. For example, when Mia was going to the prom she felt really content about it, but just when she think it is the best day ever, a more good new came. Mia was going to be a big ...more
What kind of annoyed me about this book was like it was all about Mia whining about wanting to go to prom. Like I understand but it didn't need to be like almost every page of how she wanted to go. But still it was good.
This is why I don't read a lot of chick-lit. On the one hand, the Princess Diaries are an entertaining read, all of the ones I've read so far, at least, but as the series progresses, my opinion of them goes down.

Really, if you want to go to the prom with your boyfriend, you talk to him about it. You don't write, "Ohhhhh my God! How do I get him to ask me to prom? I'll DIE if he doesn't!" in your diary over and over again. It's slightly annoying, the way that Meg Cabot stereotypes the characters
This book is so much worse than previous one. Mia has terribly low self-esteem. She constantly calls herself a freak. What kind of message this books tells to teenagers? Moreover, she repeats a few times that life is not worth living without her boyfriend. And she again moans the whole book. Only this time about the prom. What is the big deal about this prom? Wait... I have a better question. How someone can be so incredibly immature? She thinks and behaves like a small child. Someone so immatur ...more
Personally, I didn't even want to go to my own prom. I thought it was kinda lame. But because my best friend had this immense need to go to the prom with someone outside of our district, and she didn't actually go to our school, she needed me so she could go to prom. This is coming from an old and wise person, not going to prom is actually more than okay because the excitement really only lasts one day and then afterwards you're talking about graduation and the senior trip for months and then yo ...more
My reading book for this week is Princess in pink, by Meg Cabot. I gave this book four stars because it is girly and talks about fantasy, the two things I love in books.I didn't give it a five star because there are many words I didn't really understand. Next time I will not wait for the book to come to me I will go to it. Like what Mia did she really wanted to go to the prom with Micheal,then her grandma asked him to go with princess Mia to the PROM, he didn't really like proms and they talked ...more

I finished this before midnight! Yay!

By the way, I accidentally deleted everything I wrote just thirty seconds before, so let's see if I can redo this review from scratch. Sigh, clumsy me.

This book had its moments. I especially liked it for its ending. Mia would be a great big sister, not to mention how much her brother would laugh at her.

Okay, first of all, Mia thinks Ebola is a cool disease? Right. A virus that causes millions of deaths is cool. Uhuh. Anyway, Lilly. God, you won't ima
This book is really good. It contains a lot of exciting and tense parts such as the baby getting born and Grandmere moving in. My favorite character is never the least the main character Mia. Mia is a princess of Genovia that lives in New York. She found out that she was a princess when she was in high school. The main plot of the book starts with Princess Mia's birthday that led to a busboy being fire that led to a whole city protesting.
I didn't think this book was as funny as Princess in Waiting, but then I stayed up really late finishing it because I couldn't put it down. Usually I read the Princess Diaries books because they are just entertaining, but this one had a need to know element, so overall, thumbs up.

Michael doesn't want to go to the Prom! *gasps* Lol, these books are so funny!

Even though this book is awesome, it's not quite as good as the first three, in my opinion. However, there are a lot of very funny moments and Mia is her usual charming I don't think the series would be right without this book.

Gooooooooo Mia and Meg! Woooooooo!

Pretty fun. Even though I keep saying these books are written for a younger audience, I would hate for a preteen to read this one. Mia becomes more focused on "making out", with the possibility of "second base" becoming very tantalizing to her. It is a cute book, but--mothers beware!

So yes, it was silly and immature, and there WOULD be times where I would want to haul something at Mia for being such a whiny and ungrateful drama queen, but considering the fact that it IS a diary and technically diaries tend to consist of one's innermost thoughts (including the ones that are stupid and meaningless and no one wants to hear about), I let it slide.

Also, Mia is only fifteen so technically her mannerisms and constant complaints about her ever-so tragic life are pretty typical. We'
I'm disappointed these books are moving into physical relations so early in the series. Now, knowing Meg Cabot, the rest of the books will go on and on about whether Mia should have sex with her boyfriend or not. She's 15 for crying out loud!
Mia's adventures continue after a novel 4.5 (which I was unable to read because it was not on Scribd but all the other Princess Diaries books are - odd) which details Mia's spring break.

In this installment, Mia is waiting for Michael to take her to the prom. Only, he thinks that proms are dorky and doesn't want to go, shattering Mia's dreams. There was another incident on Mia's birthday with her grandmother's dog in a restaurant which caused a bus boy to get fired. Lilly jumps on that case (lite

In this book of the series, Jangbu, who is a minor character, made a huge impact and had a major importance to this book. Jangbu caused a lot of conflict because he lost his job due to Rommel, Grandmere's dog, he caused Boris's heartbreak and basically caused him to drop the globe on his head, he broke up Lilly and Mia's friendship for a few good days, caused a huge riot and caused New York City millions because all of the workers went on strike for 2 days. If Jangbu, hadn't had made an appearan ...more

While I was satisfied with the story's progress; I just really didn't like that Mia kept obsessing over the prom. It was quite humorous that Boris has a melt down, and Tina was able to find a good guy.
