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 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!

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 ...more
I do love Mia's voice, still both funny and touching, feels authentic.

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, ...more
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 ...more
This was pure, unadulterated joy. Yeah, I am totally going around the bend.
What makes this so good after about 6 books worth of pain and suffering? There are a LOT of reasons, I'll be listing Mia Style. The core was still this juvenile fear of Mia's; that she was not a party girl and Michael, who was having a party at his place, would break up with her because she was a misfit among his college friends. As stupid as that was, it was completely overshadowed by the other fun things h
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 ...more
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!
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 ...more
Meg Cabot’s voice and style for her Princess Diaries series continues to be avant garde and authentic in the seventh instalment of Princess Amelia’s saga, Party Princess. The authenticity is created by the story of Mia’s bottomless teenage angst as student body president, girlfriend to the perfect college boy, budding princess of a European country ruled by a slightly evil grandma, and awkward teen all at once. These woes are all being told through a creative series of various media com ...more
2.5 out of 5 stars.
I didn't hate it. But is it just me, or did this feel like it could have been a novella? Mia is invited to a party at Michael's house and she is not sure what to do or how to act because she ...more
Mia is still Student President and because she didn't put a math savvy person as Treasurer, they are broke. Not wanting to resort to selling candles to make up the nearly $6000 that they were in the hole, Gram comes up with the ridiculous idea of putting on a play. Well it turns into a musica ...more
SUMMARY: In this installment in the series, Mia is continuing her work as school president, but accidently runs out of money after spending too much money on recycling bins. How can she come up with $5,000 in a few months? How can she keep the scary seniors off her back? Also, Michael is throwing a party, how can she fit in at a college party?
REVIEW: This is probably my least favorite in the main series. The good: I liked the new character introduced, I liked that we saw ...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
