Popular Answered Questions
These books FLY by.. I JUST started this book and I feel like I haven't spent hardly any time reading it! While I still loved this book, I don't think it's AS good as the first, and I think it's closer to 4.5 stars.
Mia finally starts having to do more public Princess things like her big interview (man could you IMAGINE? I would have passed out probably..). In the first book she goes through a huge change finding out about being a princess.. this book has some really big changes ...more
I know this series isn't the best. It's kind of ridiculous and it's full of cliches. But the last book was fun. I don't know why this book bothered me so much. Maybe it wasn't the moment for this kind of story. Or maybe this second part was worse.
It's full of racism and misogyny.
*The protagonist thinks that Koreans can be racist to white people (spoiler: no, people of color can't be racist to their oppressors)
*They mention Donald Trump. ...more
I found the first Princess Diaries book pretty difficult to review. I think the diary aspect, although somewhat original and gimmicky at the time, really makes it hard to comment on the plot of the book. A lot of the book is introspection, so thankfully Mia’s a really likeable character.
The bonus for me here, and I think it’s why I rated it higher than it probably deserves, is Anne Hathaway’s mind-blowing performance of narrator. Her Mia i ...more
One is Mia's memory. Or shall I call her Dory?
Well, yes, Dory, in fact I do have a problem. How can a person forget everything? Like, EVERYTHING. (view spoiler)[Even the fact that her grandmere was planning a wedding fo ...more
Nevertheless, this is definitely better than the first instalment in the series! Mia is becoming more mature.
I really loved Mia's voice and how the author made her seem so real and alive. Mia is just so dramatic and it's so humorous to read! She's sort of letting the whole princess thing settle in wh ...more
It takes place only days after the end of the previous book - I have a quibble with how fast everything moves, and how soon this could have happened - when Mia learns that her mum is pregnant with her algebra teacher's baby. They decide to get married on Halloween at City Hall and keep it quiet.
It's Mia herself who blurts out the news not just to her dad and Grandmot ...more

As seen on Caity Reads.
I adore this series so much. This second novel was just as funny and entertaining as the first. I listened to these first few installments on Audiobook, through Scribd, and I loved every second of it. This has to do with a few things, of course I love Meg Cabot’s writing. She does a fantastic job of making Mia feel so authentic. I remember worrying about some of the things Mia worries about, in high school.
Of course, I neve ...more
Mia is still grappling with Princess issues in the book while gearing up for her big interview which, you guessed it, she didn't do gracefully enough. I am loving the situations Mia manages to get into. Extremely entertaining and I think we have all had similar foot in the mouth moments in our lifetime.
I love Mia so much,she's so funny and she's taking all these big news in her life pretty damn well.M.G is also very cool,I liked him in the first book but now he's even more lovable.Even Mia's dad is starting to act like a normal human being.The only character that kinda irritated me was Lilly...but I don't know,I can get mad at her for doing something, but after 10 minutes I'm like: ''Oh,just bring her back!''.I did expect to ...more
Once again, I was fortunate enough to listen to the audiobook version narrated by Anne Hathaway; otherwise, I am not sure that I would have been able to finish this story in my current state. Do not get me wron ...more
Princess Mia hasn't changed a bit which isn't a surprise really considering this book takes place immediately after the first one and spans barely a month. This time around however, I was able to overlook the things which infuriated me in the Princess Diaries; namely Mia's frequent whining about her lack of breasts, her being a princess, her not having being French-kissed, the list goes on. But really, being a fourteen year old New York-er, just starting her journey into adolescence, I never tho...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
