What's a Princess to do?

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 . . .

My review, in numbered format:

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.

During the release of almost every book in the series, I've been the same age as Mia, so I could almost always relate to what was going on. But this book in particular made me feel like I failed as a 17/18 year old. Looks like the whole "royal heir to the throne of Genovia" thing got to Mia's head - she might as well be Lana Weinberger. Could be that I am too old to read these now... but no longer is she the lovable nerd that drew me into the first 6 or so books. This series amused me during my ...more
For the first time in what feels like an incredibly long while, I finished a book in less than a day. I stayed up until past 2 am reading this!

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

Mia Thermapolis

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

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...

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

In this books all the secrets come out. When i picked up this book i couldnt put it down. i was happy about the fact that mia ended up with michael instead of J.P I also liked the fact that Lilly and Mia forgave eachother and are best friends again
Ugh. And there is really no defense for this series' continued existence through ten indistinguishable books.
OK, this is a bit like one of those Oscars that a veteran actor gets for a movie that they actually had a small part in, because the committee is really giving it for their whole body of work. I did really like this book, but it's not my favorite. It's clear that Cabot is winding up all her plot threads, which leaves less time for some of the laugh-out-loud funny moments or over the top Grandmere schemes that are so great in the other books in the series.

And she doesn't exactly wind up *all* the
Thank god it's finally OVER. Now I can relieve myself of this infernal teenage book series.
This book comforted me through high school. So, there's another girl out there who's really tall with bad hair, and sucks at algebra! I thought. Someone I can relate to!

Well, those were the only three things Mia and I had in common. As the series progressed, I found myself disgusted at this apparent 'feminist''s complete INABILITY to do ANYTHING on her own. Lily done right by her, yelling at her in Princess Mia. I agreed with everything she said. I was actually cheering out loud when Michael dum
Oh God!!! When AM I going to stop giving 5 stars to EVERY book that comes my way? Maybe never, so I am not gonna bother about it, at least not right now...

Ok, now I know EXACTLY how I want my 'prince charming' to be. Thanks to Meg Cabot for introducing such a quixotic (in a positive way) character such as Michael Moscovitz. According to the description of characters, Michael was very desirable and could have found a date anywhere, on the contrary, Mia was pretty stupid (until the end) but they w
This is the last book in this series. I have all of them and have enjoyed them all very much. I will admit I'll kinda miss reading the further adventures of Princess Mia, but all good things have to come to an end eventually. I have other books that Meg Cabot has written and I do like them a lot, so I'll probably continue to buy them.
Some can complain that this last installment was predicable, but I say: so what? It ended they way it was supposed to end and I am happy about it. I enjoyed the book very much, the ending was true to previous books in the series and extremely satisfying (unlike another YA series: Breaking Dawn anyone?).

This was such a satisfying conclusion to our beloved Princess Mia series! It beautifully wrapped Mia's high school career, and was wonderful for those of who have been with the books since before they were movies! :) I remember the first time I found Princess Mia (in the very first princess diaries of course!) I was a freshman in high school too, she helped me to find more time to journal, and get my feelings out. I traveled steadily with her avaidly awaiting each book release through the second ...more
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up this book and saw that two years had passed between it and its predecessor. In this time, Mia has grown up quite a bit. She's far less annoying, less clueless, less... everything that irritated me. Unfortunately, around the 2/3 mark this change wore off and she was acting like the old Mia again. Sigh.

Best thing about this book? It got a huge response out of me. I was so ready for Mia and J.P. to break up, it wasn't even funny. Of course, the things tha

The way Mia grew up and matured (the way Meg Cabot developed the characters), it's very very impressive.

In the previous books, there are times that I really wanted to strangle Mia. But I realized that it was all part of her growing up. The fact that I had some sort of same experience with it, being 16 and all, helped a lot. And I still cringe at my childishness and naivety whenever I think about it. Back to Mia, I'm proud of the person she became in the final book.

Michael is a huge part of why I
Meg, meg, meg, what can I say? I used to think you were a genius because you reminded me that I was normal when the world said otherwise. No matter how weird or stupid I thought I was, mia was always weirder and more stupid, and it made me feel a little bit bettter. It was a good series to have during the horrors of middle school. It was a nice universe to escape to where even awkward mia had a boyfriend and the humor was funny, if whiny and repetitive. I'm giving you four stars for saving me ma ...more

Tempted to round it up. But there are a few structural issues here, plus I really wish that there would've been another book to attempt to develop the JP relationship some more (because hello, it was obvious what was going to happen). Still I teared up a couple of times when reading it. This is a really good book despite being totally predictable. Binge review for this one to come probably in April.
The Princess Diaries series is the most amazing thing that happened to me ever. I don't know what made me first pick up Meg Cabot's book but whatever it was, must've been a sign from my fairy godmother or something. I don't know what I'd be today if I hadn't known about Mia Thermopolis, I probably wouldn't have learnt how to dream. She taught me everything. I don't care if I seem to be exaggerating or delutional, but its the truth. Everyone has a moment in their life that, if it hadn't happened, ...more
Great ending to a fun series and a fast read. I'm looking forward to reading "Ransom My Heart".

Day One: PD is my not-so-secret pleasure. I almost gave up a few volumes back (with all the 1/2 and 3/4 volumes) but then the series returned to its original trademark Mia. I'm excited to read this but sad it is the last.
Great ending to the series. Or, I guess actually it is an end to the teenage years of the series since it is picking up years later with a book out in a few months which is why I read this series.
Mia finally sees things, including herself, clearly. She has come to know who she is and even though she doesn't always deal with things quite as she should, she has definitely grown and become more active in her own life, taking responsibility for her actions, at least most of the time.
She has lots of

Konečně jsem se dočkala posledního dílu v češtině. I když si člověk říká, že to čtení nechá na později... něco ho ke knize táhne. A to něco ho pak donutí hltat jednu stránku za druhou, jen aby věděl, jak to vlastně celé skončí.
