Poor Mia. Not only has she made a total ass of herself with J.P. (a.k.a. the Guy Who Hates It When They Put Corn in the Chili), trying to prove that she’s a super-chilled party girl. She’s also bankrupted the student council. Way to go, Princess.

Just as Mia’s scared that she’s lost Michael and a ton of money, Grandmere steps in up with a fund-raising plan. She’s going to s

4.5 stars!
Flying through these last few books so I can read A Royal Wedding! It's just sitting on my nightstand STARING at me!
This is also the first book I've finished for the #TBRTakedown Readathon! 288 pages read so far!

I'm on a roll with these audiobooks. I love this series so much.

Actual rating 3.5 stars
I'm not in love with this book but it was still good. I want more substance and less superficial. I did like the addition of our newest character though. I realize these are supposed to be light and fluffy and fun, which they are, but I want to see Mia growing and maturing as she gets older, which hasn't happened thus far. Will be jumping into book 8 soon!

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
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
Mia is not a party girl---and Michael is having a party, with college girls! 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
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,
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.
Ler estes livros com a minha idade actual já não é a mesma coisa do que quando comecei, como tal, é natural que a minha classificação seja completamente diferente da que daria há uns anos atrás.
Eu gosto desta saga, mas tenho pena que não evolua muito, que cada um dos livros gire única e exclusivamente à volta de um dos dilemas da Mia.
Outra coisa que tenho sentido é que cada vez mais embirro com a Lilly. Meu deus, ela trata tão mal a Mia e todo o mundo que a rodeia. É demasiado egoísta para o meu
I enjoyed this one so much more than the last two or three. Mia's starting to grow up and we're seeing that more. I'm also so in love with Mia and Michael.
Has Mia grown up yet? No.
Is she getting there? Umm, maybe.

In this installment, Mia is obsessing about Michael’s party for his college buddies. She feels insecure about being the least intelligent person in the room and being a dorky princess but oh no, she doesn’t for once speak to Michael about it. Clarisse is bidding on a faux island shaped like Genovia and she has one major competition in the bid war. And this man has a son in Mia’s school. Who could that be? Guy Who Hates It When They Put Co

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?
It kind of funny how Meg Cabot accurately depicts a teenage mind in the Princess Diaries book.
In this one, a good example would be Mia's internal conflict between whether or not she should attend a party that Michael is throwing because she doesn't know how to party. If she actually thought about what kind of person she knew Michael to be, maybe she wouldn't have humiliated herself.

Grandmere and this island. She acts more like a celebrity that a celebrated queen. Pffft responsible MY FOOT!

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
This was so cute. I love all the pop culture references that I can finally appreciate now as a adult because I read this series in middle school. I love that Mia freaks out over everything and we share a lot of the same traits. I laughed so hard when they decided to make Guy Who Hates It When They Put Corn In The Chili a part of the group and gave him a real name. It was nice to see a running joke in the series given some depth. Another cute addition to the series. This is the last one I have re ...more
I don't think I've ever read this one so finally getting around to all the ones I haven't read. I really liked this one. The play, wait sorry musical, was funny and J.P was great :D
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
Yes, okay, it's a little silly, but that's what makes this series so fun! It doesn't take itself too seriously. I've been zooming through the last books in this series, which I left off back in highschool, so I can get to the Royal Wedding book. Writing a adult follow-up novel to a YA series is a brilliant move by Meg Cabot. I have a feeling many adult readers will end up falling back in love with Cabot's YA writing, inspired by the fun spirit and nostalgia it inspires. Look for the next few boo ...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.” 8 likes
