When I sat down on the couch tonight with this book, I was honestly just planning on reading a few pages. . NOT the entire book for sure in one sitting . This is my first time rereading this book, but it had been so long I had forgotten most of it! I was so happy that Micheal was a bigger part since he's one of my favorite characters. It was really odd to start it and have it take place almost two years after the last (since most of them take place almost immediately after the events of the prev ...more

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.
First of all, I would like to say that the author bragged the story too much... Well, there is no need of that.

After 18 years of time finally, Mia came to her senses and knew that her soulmate was Micheal, not JP. And her best friend (Lilly) should have told Mia about JP, but then the story would not flow like this.

And the other thing is that the author had to write 10 books to let Mia and Micheal get back together.

Only one book is left to finish the series. 😍
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

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

And Mia's journey through high school is complete. I really liked how this one turned out. I was happy to see Mia's growth and, as she likes to say, self-actualization! Lol

And that pretty much sums up Meg Cabot’s last and final instalment in the hugely popular Princess Diaries series.

(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...

*4.5 stars*

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.

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

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?).

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.

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.

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

Mia is ridiculously obtuse but I forgive her. Michael Moscovitz has been beyond dreamy to me since I was like 13 so this was some major wish fulfillment. (Not as much as Royal Wedding is going to be, though.)

Mild spoilers.

Ugh, the cheating ruined it. I hate it when a writer has a main character cheat, and then suddenly turns the S.O. into a horrible person to sort of "justify" it.

Other than that, I liked that the tone was more mature and less "peppy," (though there were still some stupid drama).

A time jump of nearly 2 years happens between the events of the last book and now. Mia is about to have her 18th birthday celebration, go to prom, and graduate high school. Wow, what an eventful book. Michael's been away in Japan developing the CardioArm, a huge surgical invention. But now he's back. Mia thought she was over him, but her feelings come back in full force. She's also trying to get her romance novel published under a pen name. This is one of my favorite books in the series and it w ...more

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.

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.
