Forever Princess (The Princess Diaries #10)
It's Mia's senior year, and things seem great. She aced her senior project, got accepted to her dream college(s), and has her birthday gala coming up . . . not to mention prom, graduation, and Genovia's first-ever elections.
What's not to love about her life? Well . . .
* Her senior project? It's a romance novel she secretly wrote, and no one wants t ...more
1. I still don't like Lilly very much.
2. Tina and Lana are awesome.
3. Mia is an idiot (although a lovable one).
4. Meg Cabot did not need 383 pages to tell this story.
5. Grandmere is hilarious.
6. Meg Cabot should have resisted the urges to include the pop culture references, for they will be sadly dated very soon.
7. The twist with Mia's dad at the end is priceless.
8. Michael is awesome, as is his final text message.
And really, Mia does not disappoint with her last. She could frustrate you, but in a way that's kind of amusing... And, I can't explain why, but I found myself crying at some points. Or at least getting teary-eyed. I could relate to some of her experiences.
The major reason why I'm giving this book a five is because, in all honesty, it's been a while since ...more
Of which I am living proof, having a grandmother like mine”
And that pretty much sums up Meg Cabot’s last and final instalment in the hugely popular Princess Diaries series.
PROS: Mia or should we say Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo is at the tail-end of her senior year. She has mastered the reluctant art of being a princess of a small European Principality, Genovia. She ...more
THERE ARE SPOILERS GALORE AHEAD:
(But if you don't want to know about the book, why are you reading reviews of it on Good Reads anyway?)
1)Mia graduates high school--finally after 10 books (!)
2)Michael comes back and Mia and he get back together
3)Mia finally sleeps with him--but Meg Cabot is crafty enough to disguise the scene as a page from the bodice ripper that Mia writes.
And of course, it's superfantabulous, the best sex ever. Yeah, right...
4)The bodice ripper is (really) actuall ...more
Princess Mia is back in the final installment in the PRINCESS DIARIES series. Mia is ending her senior year and life couldn't be more stressful! Where will Mia go to college? Is her boyfriend, J.P., the one? Will Michael ever return from Japan? And will Mia survive turning eighteen? What's a princess to do?
I have enjoyed the PRINCESS DIARIES series ever since I read the first book and always enjoy escaping into Mia's world. I ...more

If I was to give my initial rating after reading this one it would be A++++++, however, once I sit on this book I feel a little differently. There are some definite structural issues with Forever Princess and I really think the series would’ve been better with an additional book or taking one of those sophomore slump books out and making a book that took place in late junior early senior year.
It’s just really hard for me to buy Jia as an established couple whe ...more
The series finally shed the juvenile, silly and middle-grade-ish feel it had with the previous books. This was a book about adults and the overall vibe I got from it was a “mature” one. It takes place quite a while after the previous book, Mia is almost 18 and it has been two years since Michael moved to Japan and Lily had a falling out with Mia. It was weird, somewhat sad and surprisingly pleasant reading about everybody’s being moved on and in different places they were before.
Mia’s problems w ...more
This was definitely the best book in the series. I LOVED it. The first 9 books were rated 3-4 stars, I enjoyed them but they were never my favourite. In this one, everyone was so much more mature, the pacing was so fast and flowed so well. I loved the sexual tension between Mia and Michael when he came back. It was just perfect. I cannot wait to read Royal Wedding now.
With a sick kid at home, I needed a break from the brooding atmosphere of Drood. The tenth and presumably final volume in the Princess Diaries series fit the bill.
Meg Cabot is brilliant. I really admire the way she has brought her young and immature character to adulthood. Mia really is growing up, and unlike the Disney version, Mia is still a strong feminist, a sexual being, and a romance writer, and it all works so well.
Good ending to a strong series. Mia grows up nicely.
And I've come around to being pretty excited for the new one, but this was a really good ending. Or anyway, a good wrap up of the high school years.
STAYING UP ALL NIGHT TO READ ROYAL WEDDING. Or until I get tired anyway.

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
