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.
OK. I'm happy that I'm nearing to the royal wedding book.'The guy who hates it when they put corn in the chili'(JP) seems to be a cool guy.I feel sorry for Micheal and happy that Mia and Micheal was together at last.And of course I like Lilly and JP for what they did at the end of the play. That's why we need best friends in our life....
Mia: I want to be self-actualised!!!Mia: *talks about herself all the time*Mia: *never pays attention to her friends*Mia: Oh hey I really wonder why my boyfriend isn't giving me a call to reassure meMia: I mean its just a callMia: OK I get it, his family is divorcing and it's sadMia: but like, can he at least TELL me it's all going to be okay??Mia: OMG I'm invited to a partyMia: oh shit I'm NOT A PARTY GIRLMia: WHAT DO I DOMia: *drinks half a beer and gets drunk*Mia: *thinks her boyfriend is mad...
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 was a mixed bag. Part of it was pretty much the same immature plot in the previous books, but the characters ACTUALLY developed and matured in this one at the end, which I really enjoyed.
3.5 stars!This one was funny, as always :) But not my favorite in the series.
2.5 - Bleh. This is definitely my least favorite in the series so far. The Mia/Michael drama in the first 3/4ths of the book was so stupid and I hated Grandmère’s part of the plot. This just seemed like such a filler book. The only interesting part was finally meeting The Guy Who Hates It When They Put Corn in the Chili. I think this was such a letdown because the previous book was one of my favorites in the whole series.
So this is where you lost me, Mia.
These books are simply fun! Carl Jung? Hmm. Might want to rethink that, Mia.
Well, that was dumb. This is a bridge book that has to be read but God the plot is weak. If JP wasn't essential to the books after this I would have skipped it. And Mia is outright cringe worthy to read about in this one. 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 f...

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.
We the readers finally get to meet... *drumroll please*... the guy who hates it when they put corn in the chili! The most exciting thing to have ever happened in this series. His name is JP and he's a fantastic addition to the crew. We even get a grand musical production of Grandmother's doing. Lots of hilarity, but I still can't stand how Mia overthinks and whines about everything. But that's a 15-year-old girl for you.
All I want to do is insert the 'YOUTHS!' gif here. I was very amused by the musical that Mia's grandmere decided to put on. I am, once again, annoyed by Lily and everything she does. Who actually thinks 'Fat Louie's Pink Butthole' is a good title for anything? *sigh* Mia needs to get out of her head!
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.
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
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.The one thing I have had and continue to have
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,
So glad I did this!Even though I had to sneak into 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 was, or she turned
Okay, this is the book that made me gave up on the Princess Diaries. I spent 10 minutes at the library today flipping through it and trying to remember if I'd read it. Turns out that I had, and had repressed it from my memory because it was so awful, like a train wreck you can't stop watching. Well, we'll see. Mia and I have a history, the two of us. I remember reading her ten years ago. TEN! I borrowed 8-10 for a Princess Diaries reunion this week, and we'll see if it gets any better.
Can’t take Mia’s incessant whining anymore. She’s so immature and so unable to communicate properly. She really shits on people with her selfish assumptions and resulting drama. Also, I’m done with Lilly’s bitchy “friendship.” What an awful person! Who needs an enemy when you could have a “friend” like her?! I couldn’t even finish, which makes this miserable book my first DNF ever.
Err..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.
My favorite of the series so far because it largely focuses on high school hijinks and not-so-much princessy stuff. This paragraph is an example:Kenny took the pass to the men's room, and a few minutes later, I took the pass to the ladies', and we both ditched Earth Science and met Tina, who ditched Geometry, and Boris, who ditched English, and Ling Su, who ditched ArtI love all of the side characters so much. Possibly more than I love Mia herself. But I still do love Mia because she (sorta) men...
way too girly!!
alright I’m DEF gonna need to take a break before finishing the rest of the series. There is only so much self reflection about my tween self, and it’s influence on my current adult self, that I can handle at any given time.brb
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...
I found myself wanting to pick this up a lot as I was reading it and I do think a lot of things have been improved from previous books (goodbye constant meaningless pop-culture references!), but I still had many problems with it. I find it way too easy to disengage with the characters and the plot holes drove me crazy. I mean, how is Grandmere supposed to have time to write and direct a high school play and interfere in Mia's life so much (even to the extent of living in New York for at least tw...
