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

I think this book gets a bad rap.

I can understand why it might get a little lackluster reviews though. At it’s face it might seem silly. Really, a musical about Genovia. But I think this is the book where the series finally picks up steam again because JP enters the scene.

Up until this point, JP was simply known as the guy who doesn’t like it when you put corn in his chili. However, he actually becomes a real character in this installm

Fun to read, but oh so silly. Of course I was expecting a certain degree of sillyness, but nothing quite to this extent. An entire book of this girlie blabbering on about whether or not she should go to a party, and worrying about what going there (yes! she does go! Spoilerrrr!) may have done for her image. Bluhh... not to mention the whole Mary-Sue-plotline of the musical.

Nope, didn't work for me. I picked this up as a nice, fun read, but it really annoyed the crap out of me. Still, two stars,

Another fun book in the series. Each book builds on the character and growth of Mia, her relationships with her boyfriend, family, friends. In this one, Mia begins to have a better understanding of how she wants to behave and choices she wants to make. The production of a play in a week seems impossible, but with her grandmother in charge, you can imagine she would make it happen.
I do love Mia's voice, still both funny and touching, feels authentic.
The one thing I have had and continue to have

Err..
I actually enjoyed the first 3 books of this serial.
But this is getting kinda boring..
I love Meg Cabot's style,
but she's turning into Danielle Steel, whose novels I find too static and predictable.

So this is where you lost me, Mia.

But when can she tell him she can't make it when she has to figure out how to raise 5,000 dollars since the school budget is broke? Not to worry, Grandmere is full of ideas...well at least one and anything beats selling scented candles that are shaped like fruit! When Mia takes Lana's advice, of all people, on how to be a party girl will it Michael ever speak to her again and even if he forgives her for Sexy Dancing at ...more

i had to skip number 6 because i couldnt find it in the store and reading this ruined everything for me! it was amazing and really funny like all her books and had many new surprises but what i dont like it that her books seem really childish and arent very original in many ways like how they lost all the money - wait was that this book or the next one?

Girls or in Mia's case - just want to have fun. But that is somewhat of a hard situation when you're Mia Thermopolis - princess of a small principality known as Genovia, as well as one of the biggest over-analyzing worriers on the face of the earth. So while Mia would love to be thinking only about her boyfriend's upcoming college party, Mia is sitting around worrying about having her face pummeled in by short, strong-as-an-ape, Amber Cheeseman - senior valedictorian who is totally going to frea ...more

So, while this story explained a bit of Lilly's behavior, I don't think it excuses it. She's still really abrasive and downright mean to Mia.
That aside, I did love the book. The group of friends Mia has gains a new face. I love that Mia becomes braver and more accepting of people the more she matures in her role as princess. The relationship with Michael has a bit of a struggle again, but easily fixed in spite of Mia's overactive imagination. I enjoyed the fact that in her own twisted way, Grand

Okay, this is the book that made me gave up on the Princess Diaries. I spent 10 minutes at the library today flipping through it and trying to remember if I'd read it. Turns out that I had, and had repressed it from my memory because it was so awful, like a train wreck you can't stop watching. Well, we'll see. Mia and I have a history, the two of us. I remember reading her ten years ago. TEN! I borrowed 8-10 for a Princess Diaries reunion this week, and we'll see if it gets any better.
Amber Kestner
I do actually remember this book when Mia makes a big fool of herself dancing with another guy and drinking beer for her age isn't really smart. I do recommend reading this i'm not going to spoil to much because well this is one of them books you have to find out what Mia is going through emotionally.

The Princess Diaries, Party Princess is published by Meg Cabot the New York Times bestselling author. The genre of this book is realistic fiction because the stuffs that happen in the book can be half true and half fake. Like in the book, Mia was just in high school and she had seen many celebrities and was the princess of a country. It is realistic fiction because it is very not true that a child can open her own program on TV show and start a magazine like Mia and Lilly. The theme of this book ...more

This one has Mia being in a play and not knowing how to party. Lilly decides to make a magazine called Fat Louie's Pink Butthole. And 18 year-old Michael still wants to have sex with his 15 year-old girlfriend.

General Princess Diaries book. One left(that I currently own, anyway)!

This is probably more likely to be a 2.5.

With the Kindle sale marking down the last three books in the series, I was pretty keen to be on the final stretch of a series that I really loved growing up. In Seventh Heaven, Mia has to face being president of a broke student council, and her fears about Michael wanting to date a 'college girl'.

This is a pretty airy instalment, with not all that much happening. It does, however, set up an interest plot featuring a new character, JP. He happens to be th

Another fun read about Mia and the gang... Mia's Grandmere is clearly bonkers. And if Mia would just TALK to Michael about things, her life would go so much more smoothly!

Princess Mia just wants to have fun and be a party girl but everyone thinks that she is crazy. After the dance at the party, Mia finds it difficult to notice that Michael is mad at her and because of this her life is "ruined". Every princess can be a party girl but why not Mia? Lana, a party girl ( kind of popular ) tells Mia what to do to be a party girl, just as Mia does the same thing as what Lana says everyone thought she was crazy. All she wants is to party but that way it won't be the regu ...more

Today we left Annecy and went to Les Ollières-sur-Eyrieux. Yes a long and difficult name indeed.
We drived a long time so I couldn’t read much.
I started this book because I wanted to read this book a long time. But sometimes when you read a series and you stop on some point and you really liked it and you want to read the second book so much, but because of some reason you can’t. And finally when you can read it, it’s such a disappointed book, because you grown out of

Princess Mia is back in this seventh installment of the popular PRINCESS DIARIES series, and as usual, she's facing more problems than she knows what to do with. She's recently been elected student body president, which shouldn't really be that difficult a job since she's been in training to rule her own county someday, but it turns out that the student government is broke.

As if that weren't enough, Lilly starts a new literary magazine, calls it Fat Louie's Pink Butthole

When Mia bankrupts the student government buying high-tech recycling bins, she needs to raise $5000 soon, so that she can pay for the seniors' commencement ceremony. All her friends (including Michael, her long-time boyfriend and so-called love of her life) mention selling candles, but Mia absolutely refuses, so Grandmere comes up with a solution: a musical called Braid!, written and directed by Grandmere, starring Mia and her friends, portraying the achievements of Mia's famous Genovian ancesto ...more

Mia really is growing up, isn't she? The many psychological references made in this story actually seem to be pointing towards Mia's growth into the role that she may one day have to take up for herself.

She is turning out to be a girl who will someday be one with herself and move into the big bad world with confidence and clarity.

It is wonderful to see that Ms. Cabot has raised written these books in a light easy manner that the average teenage girl can enjoy to the fullest, while at the same

This book was just as wonderful as the others. The only thing that's different is that as each book progresses, Mia faces more mature issues in the books, so some of the silliness is lost now. For the most part, the books still have the same core things that you've always loved them for though. This book was pretty good, I just had a few issues.

As I’ve been hinting through my reread of the series, I am not a fan of book seven. While the last three books have been filler, it’s most apparent in this. The only purpose it serves is to set up a love triangle between Michael and JP (aka “The Corn-in-the-Chili boy”) for the next three books. There didn’t even need to be a love triangle; we can already see there’s problems in Mia and Michael’s relationship. She’s insecure about Michael being around more sophisticated girls; Michael has his own ...more

“But I guess that's just a reflection of how the educational system today, being so overcrowded and impersonal, makes it so hard for adolescents to break through the preconceived notions of one another, and get to know the real person underneath the label they're given, be it Princess, Brainiac, Drama Geek, Jock, Cheerleader, or Guy Who Hates It When They Put Corn in the Chili.” 6 likes
