    Mmmmph. Okay. So this is the worst one yet. Which is not that hard, because the first and second books in this series were like, nonstop barrels of laughs. Real walks in the park. Amusement park levels of fun, if you're a normal person and find them to be extremely fun, and not me who sees them as Nausea Central with like an eighty dollar admission cost. Anyway. This was just a liiiiiittle too dramatic and repetitive. Don't get me wrong, the other two books were fun precisely because they're very dr Mmmmph. Okay. So this is the worst one yet.

Don't get me wrong, the other two books were fun precisely because they're very dramatic and, yes, very repetitive - but this was just TOO MUCH. Or maybe I'm just bitter because that slow burn romance I hyped up in the last review was NOT very slow-burn this time around. :( Why not both tho. Bottom line: Probably I'll continue this reread but now it will be BESMIRCHED by MILD DISAPPOINTMENT.

I love this series and I've never reread them so I thought, hey! why not! 2. A Royal Wedding is coming out in June AND I'M SO EXCITED I CAN'T WAIT!!! (view spoiler)[ Some of you may not be able to relate to the whole Kenny issue that Mia found herself in.. but that's probably because you can speak your mind. When I was Mia's age, I could TOTALLY see myself having something like that happen to me. Where a guy friend likes you, and because you don't say anything you basically start going out.. even though Mia has no feelings for the guy (past friendship feelings I mean) she really just didn't want to hurt his feelings. (I too worry about hurting other people's feelings ALL. THE. TIME.) Then there was the part of her that had WANTED a boyfriend for so darn long and now that she had one, I think part of her just didn't want to give that up. I mean, she's only 14.. give the girl a break. All of her friends had boyfriends. I definitely think she should have told Kenny MUCH much sooner though that she just wanted to be friends.. how hilarious was it that Kenny thought Mia liked Boris?! Yikes... ONE of the reasons why I loved this book was because of Michael. What did you all think when Mia started giving him those cute little cards with the poems in them? Then he made that game for her?! Wasn't that the cutest?! Of course, Mia screamed, fell over in her chair, then ran crying to the bathroom.. but could you blame her? I mean, she thought that this super cute senior who she was in love with was making fun of her feelings? (Well, she thought he was anyways..) I was SO happy that her Grandma talked her out of the fire escape so she went the dance. Then Michael and her kissed! <3 So cute. Who also loved how Mia started her own press conference, and told everyone that all of her cousin's proceeds from the dresses would be going to Greenpeace? I love it! I was so proud of her! Who was also SOMEWHAT proud of her when she pulled the fire alarm? And crushed Lana's phone? Okay.. so maybe those aren't things to be super PROUD about... but at least Mia is standing up for herself.. sorta? The phone smashing definitely was. You know how many times I WISH I would have just picked up a mean girls phone and smashed it with MY boots? Ya.. A lot. But I never have. (Maybe that's for the best.. I mean, Mia did get suspended..) (hide spoiler)] I forgot that this series doesn't move that quickly. I'm used to reading a series where each book is a different year in school or something like that.. But I'm about to start book 4 and Mia is still 14! I think it's pretty cool though. A lot is happening to Mia right now.. definitely a lot to write in her journal about!! I'm so excited to read on! Although I remembered a lot from these first three books.. I feel like I've forgotten a lot past that.. so I'm not really sure what's going to happen in the next book!

    4.5 Freaking loved this! My heart is warm and I'm so so happy! Stayed up until 3AM finishing this baby ♥ Mia and Michael are officially one of my OTP's! This book was so much better than the second one. One thing I don't understand is why are the books of this series so short? Is completely unnecessary, as they feel like one big book split into a dozen. Between books 1-3 there is not clear division, and it bothers me because I feel like they pull me off the story for no reason. Hey, at least the 4.5 Freaking loved this!

Hey, at least the books are cheap, and you can find almost all of them on Book Outlet. I'm dying to dive right into the next book BUT I am in a book buying ban until the end of Easter and I don't want to finish the 4th book without having the 5th one :(

    Another adorable addition in the series. Didn't love this one quite as much as the first two, it was a little more boy-focused, but overall still really enjoyed it and am excited to get to Genovia next :) Another adorable addition in the series.

    I know I'm waaaaaay older than the target audience for these books, but I loved this book, even so. As I was reading this I was thinking, "That's exactly like I was in high school." Well, except I wasn't a princess . . . and I grew up in Missouri, not NYC . . . and my mom wasn't married to my algebra teacher . . . and I wasn't so lucky to have the big brother of my best friend ever like me . . . Okay, I guess this book was nothing like me. But, still I could relate to so many of the feelings Mia I know I'm waaaaaay older than the target audience for these books, but I loved this book, even so. As I was reading this I was thinking, "That's exactly like I was in high school." Well, except I wasn't a princess . . . and I grew up in Missouri, not NYC . . . and my mom wasn't married to my algebra teacher . . . and I wasn't so lucky to have the big brother of my best friend ever like me . . . Okay, I guess this book was nothing like me. But, still I could relate to so many of the feelings Mia unloaded into her diary. All of her insecurities about her feelings for Michael, and then her inability to come forward and say how she was feeling -- that totally played out like it was straight from my high school playbook. Now, as a "grownup", I'd have to say that her actions toward Kenny were totally selfish and unkind. If I had been her mother or grandmere I would never have told her to stick it out with him until something better came along, and so that she could have a date to the dance and a good grade in biology. But, sadly, I know that in the same situation at that age my selfish self would have probably done the same thing. Wrong? Yes, but maybe that's why I could relate to the dilemma that Mia faced in this book. Poor Kenny! Adolescence isn't always our finest moment of decision making and altruism. Now, having said all of that, I LOVED the ending. Yea Michael! He put so much work into his response to Mia, and then after she freaked out, he didn't back down. I know that it seemed as if so many of the kids I went to school with had these ideal love lives. They seemed to magically walk right into relationships with their perfect match. I, on the other hand, felt a lot like Mia. I felt awkward, ugly, and undesirable. I didn't really believe that there was a person on the planet who could really choose to ask me on a date. I think that is why I never really recognized when people were actually asking me out. It just never occurred to me that anyone would actually do that, so I brushed guy after guy off. Oh, the knowledge of hindsight! But I digress! I think that that is what I related to so much in this book. Mia is completely infatuated with Michael. On another side note: I do think that these teens throw around the L word (love) a little liberally. They aren't in love yet. Love takes a little more time and effort. But, to be fair, I threw the l word around a lot at that age too. Every relationship was a movie story to me. So, back to my review -- Mia is infatuated with Michael, but she cannot see any of the things that Michael does in return. She doesn't notice that he is unhappy with Kenny's actions. She doesn't see the little things that he does to show her that he cares. In this relationship, like in most relationships in life, a lot of pain could have been avoided if the two principles would simply sit down and really TALK to each other about their feelings. But, that does expose us to someone shooting our feelings down or ridiculing us, and I can see why Mia would avoid doing it. I'm going to stop reviewing now before feeling the need to unload all of my neurotic high school behaviors. I'll just say, that once again, Meg Cabot writes a funny, sweet account of one young girl who is learning to find her place in the world. Her situation is enhanced because of her role as a princess, but the reality is that many young girls have the same struggle to find "self-actualization" and recognize how they fit into this world. They also yearn for love with someone who fits their personalities completely. They struggle to be noticed without being noticed too much for the wrong reasons. They want respect and friendship that is real. I love these books because Cabot taps into those needs in a funny way that can also show the strength of youth to see the world around them as it is as they find their way in it. I loved this book, and I will keep reading in the series, hoping that future books continue this smart, funny style.

Favourite quotes: ''Saturday, December 12, 8 p.m., the Loft I WILL PASS ALGEBRA THIS SEMESTER, and NOTHING IS GOING TO DISTRACT ME FROM STUDYING FOR THE FINAL!!!!!!!!!!! Saturday, December 12, 9 p.m., the Loft I just had to go out and see the part where Bruce Willis throws the explosives down the elevator shaft, but now I am back to work.'' ''The way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if pretty soon I start wearing ripped-up fishnet stockings and dyeing my hair black. Maybe I'll even start smoking and get my ears double-pierced or something. And then they'll make a TV movie about me and call it Royal Scandal. It will show me going up to Prince William and saying,'Who's the most popular young royal now, huh, punk?' and then headbutting him or something.'' ''Grandmere says she can't get over the change in me. She says I seem taller. And you know maybe I am. She thinks it's because I'm wearing another one of Sebastiano's original creations, designed just for me,just like the dress that was supposed to make Michael see me as more than just his little sister's best friend . . . except that it turned out he already did. But I know that's not it. And it isn't love, either. Well, not entirely. I'll tell you what it is: self-actualization. That and the fact that it turns out I'm really a princess, after all. I must be, because guess what? I'm living happily ever after.''

    2.5 stars. Most of why I didn’t like this one as much was a lot of Mia being both extremely repetitive and whiny. Other than that I still liked the story, and kept reminding myself Mia is a high school student and those behaviors are normal(I guess?). I also didn’t enjoy some things about how she treated Kenny(view spoiler)[stringing him along even when she knew she wasn’t interested in him that way, especially when Kenny was increasingly getting more attached (hide spoiler)] .

    This one will always be one of my favorite in the series. In a lot of ways the first three books are my favorite in the series. Although, I do like some of the latter ones as well. This one did not disappoint. On this particular reread I am going to skip around on some of my lesser favorites in the series. Meaning, Princess in Waiting is getting a pass as well as Project Princess. Still on the fence about Princess in Pink and Princess and Training, but I will be reading Valentine's Princess next This one will always be one of my favorite in the series.

I shouldn’t love this book as much as I do. But whatever. Mia and Michael x’s infinity. Yes, I’m fangirling. But you would too with these two. Okay, to get serious, Princess in Love would’ve been a nice wrap up to the series to be honest. It sort of had that perfect gooey feeling to it. Where you just wanted to wrap yourself up and love it. Even the ending scene was just perfect. That would be in part becuase the series was originally intended as three books (Cabot didn’t know if she was going to get to write more), luckily she did. Though, for Mia’s neurosis that probably wasn’t the best idea. While I could be fangirling about how this book made me want my ship so badly, hate stupid Kenny for getting in the way, etc. I am going to note on one big thing that really made me open my eyes in this installment: Lilly. You know, I can’t stand her. Which is odd because I used to be one of the biggest Lilly defenders. I think my issue with this character is that I’ve grown up and I just want to tell her to shove it, like with that stupid walk out of hers. I know, she gets worse. I know she has issues. But come on… She has a hot brother though, so I guess that makes up for everything. That and she can make some hilarious comedic relief. It’s interesting just how polarizing this character is. I am really interested in seeing the state of her relationship with Mia post book ten. I hope that more grown up Mia tells her shove it whenever she gets on one of her tyrannical rants or at least leaves her alone with Grandmere…that would probably count as elder abuse. In all, this one was still enjoyable as ever. Especially if you like angst in your ships.

    This series is easily added to my favourites list. I'm falling more and more in love with every book I finish and I do not mind at all. It's been 3 months since Mia found out that she's a princess and the heir to the Genovian throne and you'd think things would've settled down by now, but nope. All eyes are still on Mia. I think that people are just waiting for her to mess up which is so not cool. First thing, Lily was not as annoying in this book.

I think that people are just waiting for her to mess up which is so not cool. First thing, Lily was not as annoying in this book. She was still her usual aggravating bossy self but she wasn't featured too much so I kind of forgot about her for a moment. I still think that someone -Mia- should stand up to her because just because she wants something a certain way doesn't mean that it should happen. Okay sometimes she helps but she has room for lots of improvement. So far this is my favourite book in the series. Things really progressed in this novel and we got to see a different side of Mia's grandmother and Mia herself for that matter. The maturity levels are rising and she thinks and acts more like a princess with every book but it's not hard to forget that she's still a 14 year old girl with problems that almost all teenagers face. I've probably mentioned this in my other reviews but Meg Cabot's writing style is really amazing. It's so addictive and realistic. Mia is an extremely relatable character and I love that about her. So, check this. You know how when you've been waiting for something to happen and then it FINALLY does? Yea, it happened. I'm so happy right now. The ending was phenomenal and what I was waiting for. Of course, knowing Mia's luck, something would probably go wrong. I started Mia Goes Fourth the minute I finished this book and the excitement is high. I honestly can't wait to finish this series one day. Blog | Twitter | Instagram | Wattpad

    For a fifteen year-old, Mia is really strong and actually quite smart (as long as we're not talking about Algebra!). But she's also fifteen and it shows, I think, in this one more than the rest. I don't dislike this book, I still flew through it within a day, maybe two, but I didn't enjoy this as much as the previous two. Princess in Love drags just a bit, but finishes quite strong.

The way she just captures the very essence of Mia is absolutely brilliant. All in all I definitely still enjoyed the third installment of the Princess Diaries and love all the characters very very much. I don't plan on stopping this wild nostalgic ride of a reread at all.

    Mia is not the perfect character and I think I like that. She gets so in her head about everything when the reader can tell that's not what's really happening. Her ongoing crush on Michael is just so well done and has a great build-up to what the readers have been waiting for with three books so far. She still has plenty of growing up to do and it's obvious in her misunderstandings about certain events. Another great book in this series! Mia is not the perfect character and I think I like that.

    I think I'm going to use these as a bit of a "reading cleanser" since I'm struggling so much to jump into a new book because obviously these are intended for younger readers, but they're still incredibly fun that it makes for a nice little break.

    I started Princess in the Middle immediately after finishing A Royal Disaster, and it was the best decision I've made in a while. It starts about a month or so after the events of A Royal Disaster, and Mia is struggling with the realisation that she'll be going to Genovia within the next month and formally announcing herself as heir to throne. As such, she's having even more princess lessons, and is being fitted with formal gowns to wear on her jam-packed tour of Genovia. She's also in a relation I started Princess in the Middle immediately after finishing A Royal Disaster, and it was the best decision I've made in a while. It starts about a month or so after the events of A Royal Disaster, and Mia is struggling with the realisation that she'll be going to Genovia within the next month and formally announcing herself as heir to throne. As such, she's having even more princess lessons, and is being fitted with formal gowns to wear on her jam-packed tour of Genovia. She's also in a relationship for the first time ever, and the problem is, it's with the wrong guy. After Kenny announced in A Royal Disaster that her was her secret admirer, Mia has been dated him, but the feelings just aren't there. She can't stop thinking about the boy she actually likes, Lilly's brother, Michael, and is unbeliably jealous when he starts going out with a genius who cloned fruit flies in her bedroom. Mia is dealing with having a pregnant mother, a new stepfather, studying for finals, figuring out how to break up with Kenny, trying to stop thinking about Michael, and becoming the best princess she can be. With everyone of these book, the story just gets better and better. Mia is dealing with more than any normal 14 year old could be expected to handle, and, in my opinion, she's doing a bang up job. She's trying to please as many people as she can, especially Grandmere, and her familial bonds were even stronger here. Considering Mia wasn't that close to her Genovian family at the start of this series, she is sharing a lot with them now. Once her feelings for Michael become too much, she asks her father, her Grandmere, even her cousin Sabstiano (who she thinks is plotting her assassination) for advice, and they come through. She becomes a lot closer to her friends too, especially Tina, who helps her send anonymous love letters to Michael, just to let him know there's someone else who likes him. The romance is just hotting up now. Mia finally has a boyfriend, and though it's not the guy she wants, she still sort of likes him. The only problem is he likes her far too much. Mia is trying her hardest to like him, but thinking about Michael is getting in the way, and there seems to be no way to stop that. The love letters she sent were really cheesy, and I couldn't stop grinning over how much of a sap she was being. Not to give too much away, but the end of this book was everything you could have wanted. I seriously don't think I'll be able to wait for the new editions to be published before reading more, so I'm going to order books 4-10 out of the library ASAP - hopefully they'll come in soon. Again, this is a series that just gets better and better. I read it originally about 10 years ago, and have loved re-reading them all. If you haven't read them yet, what have you been doing? Get started right away, you won't be disappointed!

    How Mia and Michael get together is ADORABLE AS F*CK. Having read the eighth book, it's not great knowing that he really did have sex with Judith Gerschner, though. I like to pretend it happened way before he started preparing his special computer program for Mia. [Blog] - [Bookstagram] How Mia and Michael get together is ADORABLE AS F*CK.

    FINALLY! That's all I'll say. I love this series. Wish I had read it when I was younger. But all that awkwardness sure does make me laugh. Ahhh, being a teenager. FINALLY! That's all I'll say.

    What a cute book! These just get more angsty and adorable as the they go on! I was totally on Kenny's side for most of this book but by the end you have to admit Michael is such a sweetheart also so of course I was swooning at their cute moments. I will never tire of the princess diaries. What a cute book! These just get more angsty and adorable as the they go on!

    I may end up repeating some things from my Princess In the Spotlight review but bear with me (or is it bare with me? I never know...)! So once again, Mia is narrating the story from her diary. I really like this choice of format because it really does emphasize Mia's voice. Once again, I'm not liking Lilly all that much even though she's slightly better in this book simply because Mia doesn't tell her as much so how would she know not to say certain things? Still, she still seems really selfish a I may end up repeating some things from my Princess In the Spotlight review but bear with me (or is it bare with me? I never know...)! So once again, Mia is narrating the story from her diary. I really like this choice of format because it really does emphasize Mia's voice. Once again, I'm not liking Lilly all that much even though she's slightly better in this book simply because Mia doesn't tell her as much so how would she know not to say certain things? Still, she still seems really selfish and never really looks at Mia's problems in a deeper light, This book does end rather abruptly (after a certain event that we've all been hoping would happen!) although I can see the reasoning why. It's the perfect pick-up point for the next book even if it does seem a bit out of place in this book. And because the book is in diary format, we only get so much information as Mia can write down and if she's just had a totally life-changing event happen, well she isn't going to be writing much. This time around, I actually found Grandmere a little funny. We got to see more of her personality in this book as she was developed from a more flat secondary character to a more complex one. The one complaint I have about this book is that some things just weren't elaborated on enough and I was really confused as to what exactly went down (for example Kenny's declaration in the hallway and Mia's press conference/interview about the dress spread). It was just a little vague and Mia only suggested at things that happened rather than just reliving it play-by-play like she normally does. The Final Verdict: I came to love Mia even more in this installment and I'm so glad we finally get to know more about Grandmere. Once again, I found issues with Lilly and some things just weren't elaborated on enough. However, Mia's voice is as stunning as ever! 4 stars Quotes: “Grandmere says she can't get over the change in me. She says I seem taller. And you know maybe I am. She thinks it's because I'm wearing another one of Sebastiano's original creations, designed just for me,just like the dress that was supposed to make Michael see me as more than just his little sister's best friend . . . except that it turned out he already did. But I know that's not it. And it isn't love, either. Well, not entirely. I'll tell you what it is: self-actualization. That and the fact that it turns out I'm really a princess, after all. I must be, because guess what? I'm living happily ever after.” “The way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if pretty soon I start wearing ripped-up fishnet stockings and dyeing my hair black. Maybe I'll even start smoking and get my ears double-pierced or something. And then they'll make a TV movie about me and call it Royal Scandal. It will show me going up to Prince William and saying,'Who's the most popular young royal now, huh, punk?' and then headbutting him or something.” “Saturday, December 12, 8 p.m., the Loft I WILL PASS ALGEBRA THIS SEMESTER, and NOTHING IS GOING TO DISTRACT ME FROM STUDYING FOR THE FINAL!!!!!!!!!!! Saturday, December 12, 9 p.m., the Loft I just had to go out and see the part where Bruce Willis throws the explosives down the elevator shaft, but now I am back to work.” “I usually know almost exactly how I feel. The problem is, I just can't tell anyone.” “Whatever. Boris, must you constantly breathe on me?” “If the guy likes/loves you, he won't care if you are a good kisser or not. He should like you for what you are - not how you kiss.” “Roses are red, violets are blue. You may not know it, but someone loves you.”
