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!

Definitely my least favourite of the series so far. I just felt like it was kinda pointless tbh

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

Suddenly came over with the desire to read a Princess Diaries book and now I'm invested in finishing the series once and for all. Can you believe this is 10 years old??

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!

This one was funny, as always :) But not my favorite in the series.

3,5 - A evolução da Mia do 6º pro 7º livro já foi muita! Acho que foi o meu favorito até agora :)

These books are simply fun! Carl Jung? Hmm. Might want to rethink that, Mia.

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

They just keep getting better as they go on!!! Mia, can I steal your boyfriend Michael?? I mean I haven't found such a cool college boy at my university.

Totally loved it. Meg Cabot and PGW are ppl to turn to when you feel down or something. LOL moments every few lines. People may not regard this as the highest form of literature; But besides keeping you in splits, it does have some life truths to say. This is my third book in the The Princess Diaries series, I am reading it out of order but I intend to read the other books too. It is meant for YA readers but I recommend it to anybody.

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.

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

So glad I did this!
Even though I had to sneak in the children's department of my local library, being all like "Pffff, what? I'm here just to grab a book for my baby sister!"
(How could they know I didn't have one?)

It's been years since I gave up on this series (as a 16y/o?), and even though I expected not to enjoy it at the age of 23 - I did!

Just one thing: was Lily this horrible friend in previous books too? Not sure if I was too young and naive to realize what a b**** she is, or she turned int

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?

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.

3.5 stars. This might be one of the more entertaining in the series. Mia is as usual really paranoid and quite frankly a little rude to people around her. But she always makes up for it in the end by being hilariously oblivious to everything happening around her. Michael is still lovely as ever and I have to say that I love J.P so much, I'm honestly a little in love with him already. I don't think I'll be able to read the next book in the series for a while because my library doesn't have it, bu ...more

Princess just want to have fun . . . And Mia does too, despite the fact that the student government over which she presides is suddenly broke. But Grandmere's got a wacky scheme to raise the money, catapult Mia to theatrical fame, and link her romantically with an eligible teen bachelor who's not her boyfriend. No wonder Michael seems to think she's a psycho, or worse: not much fun.
I really enjoyed going on this roller coaster of a book with the character Mia. She never failed to impress me as

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

Omg, Mia. Stop being worried all the time. All your problem will be solved by the end of the book anyway. (I feel like I'm giving myself the same advice)
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
