I am in the process of raising three daughters who are such a contrast to myself. Whereas I am content watching sports or reading historical fiction or mysteries, they would rather watch a Disney movie intended for girls during the Super Bowl. Recently, my older two daughters discovered The Diaries of a Middle School Princess, which has brought the Princess Diaries to their level. I decided that if my oldest daughter can sit through the Super Bowl and cheer in the right places, then I can read a ...more

Damn, this was brilliant. BRILLIANT. I hadn't realised how much I'd missed the series until I started reading this book. And boy, was it good. Everything a fan could've wanted!

Aah well. Another Princess Diaries book. I honestly expected Forever Princess to be the last one, as it gave a nice closure to each and every character. But I wasn't going to complain over another Princess Diaries, one of my favourites growing up. It was supposed to be a pleasant, magical trip down memory lane..Which it wasn't.

So what went wrong? Well, almost everything.

See, when I pick up a book which has an adult protagonist, I expect the protag. to behave like an adult.

Recommends it for: Fans of the Princess Diaries
Alrighty, this one is for Cabot's fans of her young adult series The Princess Diaries .
I am one of those aforementioned fans. Love those books!
Yes, all 10 of them.
They're just cute, sweet, funny, and...well, what else do you need?!

So, they start out with a 14 year old Mia learning that she's heir to the Genovian throne, and then follow her through the years as she grows from a gawky girl to a beautiful princess.


Anyway, fans (like me!) were thrilled to find out that Cabot was writing another bo
A lot of readers when asked what books first got them into reading will say Harry Potter or Twilight but for me it was The Princess Diaries when I was 12 years old. It was an experience that I remember till this day, 9 years later, it got me hooked and never let me go. I’ve read and reread these books so many times that I have lost count years ago.

So you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Meg was releasing a new one, I think I actually squealed and started going “ Oh my God, oh my God,

Can't believe that this series is over!! I really really liked this book but it maybe had a little TOO much going on.. That's the only reason why I took away half a star. I loved getting to see Mia all grown up and getting married. I loved finding out where all her high school buddies were at and who were still together and all that. There was talk that there MAY be another Princess Diaries adult book and I really hope that's true! I'd read books about Mia forever.
An Electronic Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss for review.

Mia is now twenty-six years old. She's come far from her teen years and has proven to be a wonderful princess of Genovia. She has wonderful supportive friends, a job she loves, a loving but meddling family and Michael, her high school sweetheart. Then she finds out something about her father that could change her life forever. 

I pretty much devoured this one. Written in a diary style, it includes written di

Everything that I wished for and more! MADE OF SO MUCH AWESOME!!! I can't imagine any fan of the Princess Diaries being disappointed with this. I AM SO HAPPY :')

Mia is just as sassy, hilarious and bumbly as she was in high school. Michael is still a dream and every girl's fantasy. (His emojis cracked me up every time, I can't even.) Grandmere continues with her Sidecar swilling and being obnoxiously rude. Lilly, Tina and co. remain supportive of our favourite Genovian princess. And the proposal

4.5 Aww, that was just adorable and amazing read. I was smiling towards the end. I was deliberating on giving this a four star rating, but I'm not gonna because this was just cute fun read. I'm still not sure how I feel about Olivia, but I hope we have a sequel. Thank you Meg Cabot for writing this story! My full review @ My Little Corner For Books

There are not enough happy dance gifs in the world to express how awesome this book was. Not only was it a trip down memory lane, but it was also filled with spot-on humor and heartwarming moments that made me want to laugh and cry happy tears into a bowl of ice-cream...and happy dance some more! :)

This book can aptly be summed up in Paulo’s wise words:
‘For life, you never know where the road will take you. Yours took you to a place where you got the diamond shoes, but now all you can say is “Ow! These diamond shoes! They fit so tight and hurt so much!” No one wants to hear about how tight your diamond shoes fit. You got the diamond shoes! Many people, they have no shoes at all.’

Amazing, incredible, fabulous, wonderful, excellent...

I honestly loved every single page of this book. Not only was I amazed to go back into this royal universe I'd read about years ago, I also thought every part of it was really well-thought.

The first thing I loved was how, after all these years, Mia is still the same girl we know, except older. She's still funny, quirky, nerdy and lovable, which made me feel like I had just stopped reading the last book. I honestly burst out laughing many tim

Though the book is named as 'royal wedding', there is no much details about the how they plan their wedding.
The book has two major conflict situations which was nearly unexpected...
And the cover is so different to the previous books. I would rather like if this had a cover similar to the other books in this series.

Anyway, I'm happy to finish this series

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher. This is no way impacted in my view.

When I first heard that Meg Cabot would be returning to the Princess Diaries' world in a new, adult book, I was so excited. As I'd grown up with Mia, I could wait to see how she was handling adulthood, and Royal Wedding was absolutely wonderful!

In Royal Wedding, we return to the life of a 26 year old Princess Mia, who is in a wonderful relationship with Michael, who later becomes her fiancé (as the title sug

Fact: I finished this three weeks ago. And read it about 4 times more.

Its like Ms. Cabot managed to fit my entire childhood in just one book (which she essentially did). And boy, did she do a good job of it.

The princess Diaries was a series that I enjoyed reading when I was younger and when I saw that I missed another book I was really curious what will happen next.

Puns, sarcasm, feminism and shading the misognists aka classic Princess Diaries. Bonus mentions of (/gasps) sex because this ain't for kiddies no more.

Admittedly, I wouldn't say The Princess Diaries is my favourite Cabot series (for those curious, it's The Mediator because when I was a kiddie, hot ghosts just did it for me ok. Don't judge me. I've since learnt that royalty and money can get you much further duh). Mia, with her "relatable" narrative voice, full of lists and puns and a boun

*sighs with happiness* This book is wish fulfillment in all its glory. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT. Review coming on my blog soon :)


You should all know that The Princess Diaries books were the first YA books I ever read.

That was before I even knew YA was a genre. I’d already seen the movies, and I think maybe they re-released the books, because when I was about twelve I bought all ten and read them over and over.

I absolutely love
