WHY DIDN'T I START THIS REREAD LIKE A MILLION YEARS AGO???I mean, honestly. These books:- are the literary equivalent of a warm cinnamon roll (speaking of which: I'm going to go microwave a cinnamon roll so let's make this review quick, yeah?)- take literally like 45 minutes to read- are nostalgic af- surprisingly, are pretty inoffensive for the early 2000s- contain a romance you kinda root for??? And it's a slow burner! Hurray.Bottom line: THIS REREAD WILL CONTINUE. Hard to say whether current
I AM LOVING THIS SERIES IT IS SO ADORABLE OMG
4.5 stars *rereadThese books FLY by.. I JUST started this book and I feel like I haven't spent hardly any time reading it! While I still loved this book, I don't think it's AS good as the first, and I think it's closer to 4.5 stars.Mia finally starts having to do more public Princess things like her big interview (man could you IMAGINE? I would have passed out probably..). In the first book she goes through a huge change finding out about being a princess.. this book has some really big changes
I simply adore these books. This one was equally as adorable as the first and I'm excited to get to the next one! I love Mia because she feels authentic to me - confused, unassuming and of course surprisingly intuitive. I really like how adults are portrayed in this series. They are in extraordinary circumstances but they are very real and flawed. I really can't say anything bad. Loved it all around! :)
Reread on 4/29/15: I adore this series. All the 2001 pop culture references were pure gold. Can't wait to reread all the rest of the books as well!
I still am not behind Mia and Lilly's friendship 100%. Also, I never realized how short a span these books cover. This one takes place only a month after Mia learns she's a princess. And she is still bemoaning her flat chestedness and height of 5'9. Come on, kiddo. It'll be okay.
Wow, every time I re-read a Princess Diaries book, I just fall more and more in love with Mia. In A Royal Disaster, Mia has now come to terms with the fact that she is the sole heir to the Genovian throne, and is having daily princess lessons with her Grandmere to prepare for the upcoming visit to Genovia in December. She's also come to terms with her mother dating her algebra teacher, Mr Gianini. However, her mother being pregnant, and engaged, is a whole other thing entirely. On top of all thi...
This i very interesting book. I realy love M.C. books. I think she's very, very clever and modern. I realy like that Mia is a feminist;)I luve Princess Diaries;)
Still enjoyed this one but the pop culture references have not held well. I can only imagine Helen Thermopolis's reaction to hearing that Grandmere invited Orange Turd to her wedding today. Also, unrealistic that Orange Turd would actually let Martha Stewart talk or even be talking to her when there were super models in the room. Also, given that this book was written around the time of the great bus incident it's even more creepy. To see full binge review of books 1-3 click here.This is weird.
I've never liked the movies, but at least they cut out most of the unnecessary junk that fills these books. Are boyfriends and kissing really the most important things on the mind of the average 15-year-old girl?
This series is so fun to listen to! I love that it's Anne Hathaway who does the narration. Mia is a very funny character and even if her reactions are too much I care about her. I'm glad I'm enjoying it even if it's so different than the movies.
This was so much fun, as expected :)
I simply adore this series <3 I would love to have Mia as a friend ^^
This series is just too much fun. I love Michael 💖
3.25 stars.Honestly, there's not much else I can add to this that I didn't say in my review for the first book. I don't think anything can truly top my love for the first book, where it all really starts, but this book is not far behind. Princess in the Spotlight is still just as well-written, still super cute, and I love the nostalgia that comes with it. I find it amazing that these books have passed the testament of time for me and are still just as enjoyable. Not only that but the audiobook,
3.5 - I enjoyed rereading this even more than the first book! I had completely forgotten the plot of book 2 and ended up gasping out loud on page 1. These are just such quick, fun reads. It's great to be reminded of why I loved them so much back in the day.
A really sweet re-read!

I've wanted to read this for ages. Maybe if I had gotten my hands on it when I was younger I would have enjoyed it more. But as a 0 year old woman I found it mostly cringe-y.
I bought the whole series as a Kindle set so I guess we're doing this.
Reading challenge 2016: #26 A book and its sequel (2/2)I know this series isn't the best. It's kind of ridiculous and it's full of cliches. But the last book was fun. I don't know why this book bothered me so much. Maybe it wasn't the moment for this kind of story. Or maybe this second part was worse. It's full of racism and misogyny. *The protagonist thinks that Koreans can be racist to white people (spoiler: no, people of color can't be racist to their oppressors)*They mention Donald Trump
First Read: April 2009
I will not be writing reviews for these books as everyone has already read them, and since I’m reading them all right now I don’t want to use my time for reviews.
Typical Meg Cabot fashion. Silly and cuteOk I need to remind myself the plot in the books actually drifted away from the movie. Here Mia's mother is having her Algebra teacher's baby. And her royal and nosy grandma is planning a wedding for her mum. WTF I don't know why Mia's grandma thinking Mia's mum getting married is her business. Mia have a secret admirer that been sending her letters and Mia continue crushing on Michael
you can pry early 2000 YA literature from my cold dead hands

I just really enjoy these books in general. They're really fun books when you're in a reading rut that go by quickly and make you laugh. Quite honestly, this book took me an hour to read! This wasn't my favorite book (I liked the first one better) but if I have to read it to reread the series, then I shall!I really loved Mia's voice and how the author made her seem so real and alive. Mia is just so dramatic and it's so humorous to read! She's sort of letting the whole princess thing settle in wh...
I found the first Princess Diaries book pretty difficult to review. I think the diary aspect, although somewhat original and gimmicky at the time, really makes it hard to comment on the plot of the book. A lot of the book is introspection, so thankfully Mia’s a really likeable character.The bonus for me here, and I think it’s why I rated it higher than it probably deserves, is Anne Hathaway’s mind-blowing performance of narrator. Her Mia is so sweet and innocent and somewhat naïve, her Grandmere...
After finishing the first book in the series, I needed to pick up the next one right away. And that I did. Sadly, I didn't enjoy this one as much as The Princess Diaries :/ It was still enjoyable and easy to read, funny at parts... but there were two thing that bothered me a lot: One is Mia's memory. Or shall I call her Dory?Well, yes, Dory, in fact I do have a problem. How can a person forget everything? Like, EVERYTHING. (view spoiler)[Even the fact that her grandmere was planning a wedding fo...
It's a short book - only 50,000 words - and I guess you could consider it a little bit of a filler. But it was still cute, and I laughed. [Blog] - [Bookstagram]
