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...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,...more

Err..
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.

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

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

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.

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...more

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!

Today we left Annecy and went to Les Ollières-sur-Eyrieux. Yes a long and difficult name indeed.
We drived a long time so I couldn’t read much.
I started this book because I wanted to read this book a long time. But sometimes when you read a series and you stop on some point and you really liked it and you want to read the second book so much, but because of some reason you can’t. And finally when you can read it, it’s such a disappointed book, because you grown out of...more

Princess Mia is back in this seventh installment of the popular PRINCESS DIARIES series, and as usual, she's facing more problems than she knows what to do with. She's recently been elected student body president, which shouldn't really be that difficult a job since she's been in training to rule her own county someday, but it turns out that the student government is broke.

As if that weren't enough, Lilly starts a new literary magazine, calls it Fat Louie's Pink Butthole...more

When Mia bankrupts the student government buying high-tech recycling bins, she needs to raise $5000 soon, so that she can pay for the seniors' commencement ceremony. All her friends (including Michael, her long-time boyfriend and so-called love of her life) mention selling candles, but Mia absolutely refuses, so Grandmere comes up with a solution: a musical called Braid!, written and directed by Grandmere, starring Mia and her friends, portraying the achievements of Mia's famous Genovian ancesto...more

Mia really is growing up, isn't she? The many psychological references made in this story actually seem to be pointing towards Mia's growth into the role that she may one day have to take up for herself.

She is turning out to be a girl who will someday be one with herself and move into the big bad world with confidence and clarity.

It is wonderful to see that Ms. Cabot has raised written these books in a light easy manner that the average teenage girl can enjoy to the fullest, while at the same...more

This book was just as wonderful as the others. The only thing that's different is that as each book progresses, Mia faces more mature issues in the books, so some of the silliness is lost now. For the most part, the books still have the same core things that you've always loved them for though. This book was pretty good, I just had a few issues.

As I’ve been hinting through my reread of the series, I am not a fan of book seven. While the last three books have been filler, it’s most apparent in this. The only purpose it serves is to set up a love triangle between Michael and JP (aka “The Corn-in-the-Chili boy”) for the next three books. There didn’t even need to be a love triangle; we can already see there’s problems in Mia and Michael’s relationship. She’s insecure about Michael being around more sophisticated girls; Michael has his own...more

Mia was recently elected president of the student body, and things were going great until she realized...oops...they are broke! It must have been those high tech recycling bins they installed. Having no money left for a commencement ceremony, Mia is desperate to raise some serious funds. Leave it to Grandmère to come up with a crazy scheme to raise money. Mia is to star in a play based on a Genovian ancestor's life. Her co-star is a boy named J.P. (formerly known as "the guy who hates it when th...more

I started reading this series when I was 10 I has read the whole series 4 times before is turned 12 so I honestly fell in love I am still a big fan of these books the story of how princess Mia put up with everything her live through at her is honestly quite in believable of I was this character I would've probably had a breakdown instead of writing in a diary it just shows how much courage this character had
Lefty Kalaitzis
Honestly, this book wasn't out of the ordinary. This book wasn't a bad book, but it was dull and un-exciting and repetitive because the author kept repeating the same things in "Mia's Entries". It did have it's moments where it really grabbed my attention and I kept reading bust it was for a short period of time. This book is about Mia juggling life of being your normal average teenager while being a Princess at the same time. You can only imagine how difficult and mystifying this must have been...more

So this is like the 10th Princess Diaries book I've read and FINALLY Meg hits one out of the park!!! This was just so much fun!! Of course it had 2 of my most favorite things in the world: writing and performing on stage (*almost* like Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown, but different century. And ages.). Still had to suspend disbelief, especially when Meg starts dropping celebrity names, but otherwise, the plot kept up the suspense, and I was even surprised at the end (and I'm usually not, as in these...more

This book lived up to my expectations! I love reading about all of Mia's troubles and they never fail to make me laugh! In this book she is worried about not knowing how to party and she's worried Michael might break up with her because of it. She is also being forced to be the lead in a play that her grandmother wrote. This is a very good series and every girl should read it!
Madeleine
If you've read all of my other reviews you probably know by now that I love these books. But to those of you who haven't read my other review's, THESE ARE ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOK SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I suggest read them all. Mia is the main character in this book, as she is in all of the books, and she is her high school's student president. But, they are broke. Everybody is saying "we should sell candles" but for some reason she doesn't want to.
Aside from this she is also being made to au...more

This is why high school girls shouldn't date college boys. They just simply don't know how to act.

Michael is having a party, of course Mia is invited, but sheesh - she's just trying too hard. Plus she's got the added pressure in the fact that the student government she is in charge of... yeah - they're out of money!! And there are still three months left in the school year (and they have to pay for the graduation ceremony hall!!)

Grandmere comes up with a plan to help (in her way). She has a play...more

Party princess is a great book for teenagers that love to feel like a princess. Mia is a high school student, the president of the student government, and above all she is the princess of Genovia. This young princess has bankrupted the student government and has to now raise 5000 dollars to be able to arrange the senior's commencement ceremony and to do so she has to get the money and fast. while struggling with her boyfriends moods, her friends writing obsession, her grandmothers i-can-do-it-al...more

A series can go one of two ways: it can develop characters and a continuous plot over the course of multiple story arcs, or it can follow a similar plot over and over. The Princess Diaries has become more of the second type as it has gone on, and at this point,the plot and characters are tiresome. Especially after reading an Austen novel, in which the characters are repeatedly foiled because they are not allowed by social norms to speak to each other with any substance, it is SO annoying that on...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.” 4 likes
