      If you ve seen the movie version, this book takes up about the first third or maybe half of the movie from what I remember , but don t let that fool you into thinking nothing much happens in this book.Mia Thermopolis lives in Manhattan with her artist mother Helen, going to a private school called Albert Einstein High and spending the summers with her father and his mother at her chateau in France She knows they re rich, but she thinks her dad is just a politician At school she s unpopular and h [...]

      Note contains spoilers.Did you love this movie Cause I did Decide that you should give the book a try I mean it is only fair since you have seen the movie Me too.Want some advice Don t bother Because I am assuming that you ll be picturing the amazingly gorgeous Anne Hathaway as the zany, hilarious and quirky American high school teen girl, turned accidental Genovian princess, like she plays in the movieAnd the beautiful Julie Andrews as the royal Queen with her helpful, benevolent, caring, grand [...]

      This is WAY different than the movie Mia s personality is younger and sillier, but it became less irritating and endearing after a bit I still mostly just wanted the book to be over, though I didn t realize this plot only covered like the first half of the movie and that so many things had been changed and changed for the better Basically, skip the book and stick with the movie unless you re in middle school because then you might like the narrator and this series way .

      I first read this series YEARS ago but thought it was time for a reread with A Royal Wedding coming out this summer I simply loved it I thought maybe since I m so much older I wouldn t like it as much, and that maybe I d get annoyed even Freshman Mia can be a little dramatic but I didn t It was perfect Excited to continue reading on until the new book comes out In some ways, I actually feel like I connect better with Mia now then I did before, not because I m a princess secretly or because I m h [...]

    5. Dawn on said:

      I never got around to reading this when I was the protagonist Mia s age, and since the book and movie series became so popular, I recently decided to take a trip back to childhood and finally read this book It was a quick read, thankfully, but I didn t find it nearly as endearing as the movie version which is substantially different from the novel The book seemed awfully light on plot and substance Character development was minimal, and as a result, most of the characters including Mia weren t a [...]

    6. Shannon (leaninglights) on said:

      Honestly, this book was a complete surprise for me I had never read it I know, I know and I loved it So smart and clever and totally kick butt feminist This book was so ahead of its time when it was first published I don t know but I would guess there was backlash lol I can t wait to pick up the next one and I definitely recommend the audiobooks as well Anne Hathaway narrates the first three and she does an amazing job I could try and nitpick and find something to critique but I honestly don t w [...]

      Say hello to Mia Thermopolis, 14 years old and frustrated with teendom and it s innumerable woes.To jot down a few of her frustrations 1 She is the tallest girl in her class, has feet like skis, is gawky, geeky and has a chestline that is flatter than a surfboard.2 Her mouse brown dishwater blonde hair is triangular in shape and has a rampant life of it s own.3 She is a child born of wedlock, the offspring of a tempestuous college romance between the lofty Phillipe Renaldo of Genovia fictional c [...]

      4.5Absolutely LOVED this Okay, so I wasn t really planing to read this ever, because I was quite satisfied with the movie and I ve heard that the books were really different But then, Shannon from Leaning Lights booktuber how cute, fun they were and I find it really cheap on Thrift Books and they gave me a 20% discount because of my birthday, and I had to buy it, OK xD But it was such a good decision I m still surprised that about how much I enjoy this story I laugh out loud multiple times and I [...]

      To see full binge review of books 1 3 click here.First things, first.The outdated pop culture references are still hilarious Though some of them are sot of sad cringe worthy if you think about what has happened to some of the celebrities since the publication of this book Also, I still need to watch some of those Lifetime movies that Mia mentioned like Why Me I still haven t been able to find that one yet.Oh, well.It was also hilarious to look at some of these characters due to spoiler purposes, [...]

    11. Mary on said:

      I read the first 3 books in the series yesterday and I can t decide if I think they are clever and funny or obnoxious and pretentious Maybe you will have a different opinion I didn t relate much to Mia everything she stands for annoys the heck out of stuff I stand for But she is still kinda funny anyway.

    12. C.B. Cook on said:

      Unfortunately, I couldn t finish this I got ten pages in and I could not handle Mia s obsession with kissing and the size of her chest and half a dozen other disgusting things I ll stick to the movies, thank you very much.

    13. Kristina on said:

      This book was so much fun I love the series because it transports me back in time when I was a lot younger If you are looking for something light and fun, then give it a go Krisi

    14. Isa Lavinia on said:

      Now that I ve reread it as an adult I have to raise it from a 3 to a 4.I can t believe how many jokes went over my head as a kid This was really funny

    15. Elaina on said:

      I listened to this on an audiobook and it was pretty cool to have Anne Hathaway read it I kind of felt like I was watching the movie because of it lol There were a few things that bothered me thoughe misuse of God s name several times along with a couple inappropriate comments that weren t needed at all in the story It was definitely funny at times though P It s kind of hard to pinpoint if anything else bothered me because it s just different listening to it rather than reading it I guessI often [...]

    16. BAM The Bibliomaniac on said:

      This book was absolutely charming Audiobook with Anne Hathaway as narrator her voice was perfect for a high schooler Not exactly like the movie, but still a great read Mia is an engaging teenager, really amusing.

    17. Asha on said:

      I remember seeing the movie adaptation of this book when it came out in 2001 and being absolutely mesmerized by the depth of Anne Hathaway s brown eyes and the luxuriousness of her long brown hair To tell you the truth, I am still not over that woman Watching as her hair was brutally shorn off in Les Mis did something to me Anyways I read the first three books in this series a long long time ago and it has come to my attention that there are eleven books so I have a lot of catching up to do.This [...]

      This was hilarious and even though the movie was good it left some of the funny parts out.

      Auk What a klutz I am I thought I was purchasing _The Princess Bride_, a book I ve long wanted to read since I loved the movie and it s so iconic, but had a senior moment and bought this instead Oh well, I ll keep reading and see if I can stand it Yes, I could stand it and enjoyed it quite a bit The premise is silly, of course, but the characters are cute Main character Mia aka the Princess is a dear and the reader can t help liking her and sympathizing with her Nice book Mia has a cat named Fat [...]

    20. Nikki on said:

      Reread February 2016 This book is so great, even the second time round I love how intelligent Mia is, but still gets to worry about things like boys and hair and stuff, because you can be care about that stuff as well as Greenpeace and that s cool beans First Read March 2015 SO FUN I loved this I actually prefer book Mia to film Mia, because she is so hilarious and clever I started reading this because I couldn t sleep, which was a mistake because I ended up reading most of it and not actually s [...]

      When I was offered with the opportunity to review the new 15th anniversary editions of The Princess Diaries, I immediately took it Being 20, I grew up with this series, and count wait to re read one of my favourite ever series I had actually forgot most of the events of book 1, The Princess Diaries, and was actually going off what the movies say Oh, how wrong I was First of all, Mia s father, Philippe, isn t actually dead He s the person who tells Mia the truth about her birth and heritage, all [...]

      This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic NerdActual Rating 2.5 StarsMY THOUGHTSThis book is such a hallmark YA book that I felt like it was odd that I haven t read it yet This book has so many fans, so I had very high expectations Sadly, I wasn t really that impressed by this book.I m pretty sure every knows the plot of this book by now, so there s no need for me to rehash it Mia is normal, then her dad tells her that she s a princess Of course, Mia doesn t want to be a princess I th [...]

      O.k this review is about Meg Cabot s books than it is about The Princess Diaries I just listened to The Princess Diaries on a road trip and thought it was way funnier than the movie it was read by Anne Hathaway who did an awesome job I ve also been reading a few other Meg Cabot books over the last few months and I think she has a tallent for writing for teens and for making her characters say and do pretty funny things But, I have big issues how many of her main characters seem to have pretty l [...]

      This is me, actively putting away all of the horrible flashbacks that come from being inside a 15 year old s head.This is very cute I loooove the Disney movie and I remember reading these books because of them oh so long ago and being like whaaaaa Because Disney basically took this book and poured some good ole wholesome chocolate milk all over it Again, I prefer the movie But the book is much true to an actual awkward 15 year old s life I have no idea how Meg Cabot so accurately stuck her adul [...]
