Mia Thermopolis (aka Princess Amelia Migonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo) has already won the hearts of millions of aspiring princesses. Girls will be overjoyed with this hilarious addition to their favorite series, which involves seven minutes ...more
"Instead of being wakened to the sound of birdsong, like princesses in books, I was wakened to the sound of Rommel shrieking as Fat Louie beat him senseless for getting into his bowl of Fancy Feast."
Fun as always.The Princess Diaries always make me feel better so I'm usually reading them when I'm kind of sad or depressed.Like this whole week.Today was my first day of senior year of high school and it was awful.The new school principal changed most of my professors.She also made a new behavior/ ...more
Nesse livro a Mia está menos pentelha que no último e ADOREI ver ela batendo de frente com a Lilly, que convenhamos é a pior amiga da face da Terra.
MAS acho q esse livro é bem uma transição do posicionamento infantil e inseguro dela, para algo mais adulta. O problema é q mais uma vez a gente passou um bom tempo com a Mia achando isso e aquilo e surtando, ao invés de se posicionar. A gente pensa q dps do q ela aprendeu no último livro isso não ia acontecer tanto ...more
Initial reaction after finishing this book: Bloody hell. I need to go eat a pool of chocolate or drown myself in something sweet and sugary after this terrible excuse of a book...
Well, I don't know what to say. I have a pretty on-and-off relationship with Meg Cabot's works, despite her (probably) being my most read author... and the "off" part in relationship mainly has to do with this series. If you were around when I read the previous four books of this series then you probably aren't s ...more
Then there’s Grandmere who fires a busboy after something happens to her pet pooch. A strike among busboys ensue and soon Grandmere finds herself lodging in with Mia’s mom under one roof. Sounds exciting, eh? Oh but there’s more! Wait till you hear Mia’s moms exciting baby news!
After a while, yo ...more
Even though she sees that she's lucky and most of her life is, at least for a moment, going well, she is pining f ...more
What I Remembered:
Really hating Lilly in this installment and not really feeling Toris.
What I Got:
Really hating Lilly. Finding Toris a lot more tolerable and believable. And finding Mia almost as intolerable as Lilly in this installment.
In fact, if I wanted to, I could have a drinking game every time Lilly or Mia annoyed me. I get that they’re fourteen/fifteen year old girls, but both of them need a good swift kick in the pants to rea ...more
So this one was all about Mia’s heartfelt desire to go to prom with Michael which, in her opinion, would bring her one step closer to achieving self-actualization. (*insert scoffing sound*) Every book in a series has its protagonist facing great adversities. The enemy gets bigger and badder with each installment. In the Princess Diaries series, however, the “difficulties” Mia faces are:
1-Who is going to take me to the Cultural Diversity Dance?
2-Ditto Nondenominational Winter Dance.
3-Will I ever
This book reminds me of what it would maybe be like to go back and read my own high school diaries, except less embarrassing. And this book is really embarrassing. Which is why I, ...more
(I googled and Fiesta Giles is indeed a REAL ACTION FIGURE currently retailing for $62.99)
Thankfully the book turned out to be great, a lot of fun and Mia was mostly doable in this one. Still a bit weird, still a bit strange, still a bit annoying, but I saw another girl as well. She is really growing up, she starting to see more of the world, starting to tell ...more

It's my first time re-reading these books since I read them as a teenager and it's interesting to see how differently I react to them. However, I have to say that I definitely don't like the series as much as I used to and this book has been the worst so far.
I don't like how Meg Cabot mentioned Asperger's syndrome here. Apart from that, Mia was even more irritating than before and I don't even know what to say about Lilly. The plot seems pointless too, s ...more
I'm not the target audience. We all know that. I'm not really meant to empathise too much with a 14-15 year old girl. While Mia initially felt like a fresh and innocent ...more
Will Mia get to wear her pink dress to prom? As she has been wanting to for the longest? I think this book is realistic-fiction . Why ? Bc i bet there is ATLEAST one girl or more who are dating someone & they think the same perspective as Michael does. Mia has been dying to go to prom . But her boyfriend thinks prom is stupid & he wasnt going . She is crushed after she hears what Michael said about prom & not going.
The story takes place in New York City . Mia ...more
It really peeved me to see how obsessed she was with the prom. I mean, the word “prom” is mentioned a whopping 287 times in the book! And it wasn’t even HER senior prom! It was Michael’s. And he was least inte ...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
