You got the diamond shoes! Many people, they have no shoes at all. She whines. Ad nauseum. An honest-to-goodness tiara-wearing Princess. But is Mia happy? Mia whines and whinges and wonders why everything happens to her?!? Yeah, Mia…my heart bleeds for your plight I hate lashing out at a series that was very dear to me.
Mia was an endearing teen heroine. I adored the first three instalments of The Princess Diaries. She was a tall, clumsy, fourteen year old with a surfboard chestline, a triangular hairstyle and a grandmother straight from Gitanes-scented hell. For such a girl to be suddenly thrust into the limelight and freak out was understandable. Her rantings, ravings and panic attacks made complete sense.
But not now. And that rankled. Low blow, Cabot. Why did you have to go do that to Mr. To sum it up, I do love a happy ending. But I think I already got that in Book This one, I could have done without. Jun 07, Dayse Dantas rated it liked it. Mia mocks her teenage self for being too self absorbed while maintaining the same annoying quality to this day? Just No. Mia still gets weirdly panicked thinking Michael is going to break up with her after all these years?
G dying just for the sake of a lazyass rekindled love storyline? Mia still talks about Tina in a condescending way even though they've grown up and she's clearly in pain and is also a medical student?
Lilly and Lars?
Helen and Philippe getting back together out of nowhere because Philippe had another secret daughter and therefore was more complex than Helen had realized? Philippe abnegating? Helen moving to Genovia because of Philipe? The whole flippant baby business? Mia considering Lilly as godmother and not Tina? Tina, as usual, had to do the job. Boris is a superstar. Ok, she was actually kind of great.
Which makes it worse, because this entire book felt so weak and… unnecessary. Then all of the rest of the things that happened in this book could happen in the course of Olivia's series and in a much better written and handled way. Not the horrible stuff, though, such as Lilly and Lars. Eugh, seriously, what was that?? Just felt like lazy writing. I was sad at first, then I got frustrated, then I got angry, and now I'm going back to being sad.
Feb 28, Laurence R. Amazing, incredible, fabulous, wonderful, excellent I honestly loved every single page of this book. Not only was I amazed to go back into this royal universe I'd read about years ago, I also thought every part of it was really well-thought. The first thing I loved was how, after all these years, Mia is still the same girl we know, except older. She's still funny, quirky, nerdy and lovable, which made me feel like I had just stopped reading the last book.
I honestly burst out laughing many tim Amazing, incredible, fabulous, wonderful, excellent I honestly burst out laughing many times while reading, because her honesty or her comments were just too funny. She and Michael were easily recognizable - as well as the other characters, to be honest - and it didn't feel the slightest bit weird to see them get on with their lives and be real adults. Their love is still extremely strong and while this novel didn't feel like a romance, it still has loads of swoon-worthy moments that I enjoyed very much.
As for the plot, I honestly have no idea how Cabot could still think of such an amazing plot. Really, after having written ten books about a young princess's life, you'd think she'd have ran out of good ideas, but here's the truth: Everything about Genovia and being a princess was realistic and interesting, and the many plot twists made my reading experience very pleasant. Though I could easily have been spoiled about some of them - I mean, the title is a pretty big clue that I, being stupid, didn't think of - I wasn't and I was surprised many times while reading.
Seriously, I recommend this book to everyone. I even considered recommending it to my mother, although it's far from her favourite genre, aka historical fiction. It will make you laugh and smile like no other book and we all know that's what you want. Thank you to HarperCollins for providing me with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Nov 18, Sepani rated it liked it Shelves: The book has two major conflict situations which was nearly unexpected And the cover is so different to the previous books.
I would rather like if this had a cover similar to the other books in this series. Anyway, I'm happy to finish this series. Jul 18, Shannon leaninglights rated it really liked it. So very adorable. We got Moa as an adult but she's still totally Mia: Michael feeeeeeeels, as always: I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher.
This is no way impacted in my view. When I first heard that Meg Cabot would be returning to the Princess Diaries' world in a new, adult book, I was so excited. As I'd grown up with Mia, I could wait to see how she was handling adulthood, and Royal Wedding was absolutely wonderful!
The past few years have been really good for Mia. She's secure in her relationship with Michael, even with the paparazzi questioning why they aren't engaged, and is running a community centre for teens in honour of her late stepfather.
However, problems start coming thick and fast. Her father, Philippe, has been arrested for speeding, and is facing harsh political opposition, the paparazzi are hounding her about everything from her relationship to her political views, she has a stalker who seems quite crazy, and then there's the unbelievable announcement that she has a half sister, living only 50 miles away in New Jersey.
Oh, and also something else, but that's quite spoilery - I can safely say it's something worth waiting to read for. Considering I only read book 1 last week, it was very weird to jump between the events of them both. However, I'm really pleased with how things have transpired in the meantime, and even though I know what will happen in the future, I'm still looking forward to reading books Both this book and From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess cover the same time period, so there is some overlap.
It was nice to see both Mia's and Olivia's thoughts on discovering they were sisters, and I'm not actually sure who's voice I preferred. As said earlier, this book is classified as adult, as Mia is now 26, in a committed relationship, etc. However, there were no explicit scenes as such, just allusions to sexual themes, so I think older teenagers would have no problem reading it.
Mia and Michael have always been one of my all time OTPs, and to see them so happy in this book was a dream come true. Because of the events of this book, I'm actually desperate for book 12, even though I finished Royal Wedding less than an hour ago. The romance was exactly as I'd imagined it would be between Mia and Michael as adults, and I'm so happy with where they are in their lives.
We also saw many old faces from the original series, including Lilly, Tina, Lana, Lars, etc. Her family was just as wacky as always. Clarisse will always have a soft spot in my heart, and quotes of hers such as 'But I don't have my eyebrows on! I can't meet my only other grand-children with no eyebrows. Developments between Mia's parents ensured they'd both be in her life in further books.
Knowing that Mia will have a full family unit of parents, grandmother, half-siblings, and a new husband to help her with her future in Genovia makes me sure she'll be perfectly fine! Overall, I could not have asked for a more wonderful return to Mia's life. Being the 15th anniversary year of The Princess Diaries release, Royal Wedding has come at the perfect time, and Cabot should be very proud of her work over the years.
I know I was overwhelmed by this story throughout every book, and Royal Wedding was no exception. I honestly could not recommend this enough. Oct 20, Bookaholic reads every mortal thing rated it it was amazing Shelves: I finished this three weeks ago. And read it about 4 times more. Its like Ms. Cabot managed to fit my entire childhood in just one book which she essentially did. And boy, did she do a good job of it. Now, all I need is that seventh Mediator book, and I'm pretty sure I can die a happy woman I was 10 when I read the first book.
My uncle used to work in the accounts department of a really popular bookshop, so he saw this on their bookshelves and thought that I might like it. I would like t Fact: I would like to say that I got to reading right away, but that would be a complete lie since I read it only six months later.
I wanted to finish the Mallory Towers series before I jumped into anything else. But the moment I started it, there was no turning back. Pretty soon, the series became the Bible of my preteen years , which retrospectively, wasn't exactly a good thing since Mia has her moments of utter foolishness and over thinks certain situations and needlessly makes herself paranoid, but it teach me about the kind of people out there and the kind of guys I should hope for, which I guess was a good thing.
In this book, we meet the Mia of our childhood: She's still someone I would love to have as a best friend. And oh, JP is still an ass. Jus' sayin'. Guess some things never change. Although, I wasnt expected that little I wasnt expecting it, so I was as taken aback as Mia, but thinking about it, it was pretty cute actually.
In short, I cried like a baby when I finished the book, I think I'm tearing up a little now and I have no clue how to end this. I still read the tenth book 4 times a year and it never gets old and now I have another book to re-read forever alongside it. So thank you, Ms. Cabot, for this extended ending of some of my favorite characters of all time. And thank you for my childhood.

Jun 09, Jess rated it really liked it. Puns, sarcasm, feminism and shading the misognists aka classic Princess Diaries. Admittedly, I wouldn't say The Princess Diaries is my favourite Cabot series for those curious, it's The Mediator because when I was a kiddie, hot ghosts just did it for me ok.
Don't judge me.
I've since learnt that royalty and money can get you much further duh. Mia, with her "relatable" narrative voice, full of lists and puns and a bounty Puns, sarcasm, feminism and shading the misognists aka classic Princess Diaries. Mia, with her "relatable" narrative voice, full of lists and puns and a bounty of second hand embarrassment missed the endearing mark for me. Turns out, over-relatabilty can turn a girl off. But there's no denying that her antics are completely enjoyable to read, no matter how suspiciously dramatic they are.
I'm going to take a leap and say, for a 26 year old, I still get flashbacks of her 14 yr old "voice".
I'm not condemning her for her lack of maturity or whatever the fuck is expected of an "adult". But I feel compelled to point out that in comparison to other protagonists around that age range, she is still written with the dramatic flair of a "teen" or the fictional equivalent of your teenager voice, minus the swearing because god forbid we taint our tongues with such words. The best element to this series will always be its promotion of feminism and equality, its condemnation of sexism and misogyny and its shade at diversification as a "trend".
It really addresses the double standards when it comes to women and men in the media. Caught with your bf coming out the next day? Well, you become "Princess of Gen-Ho-via". Disgusting and absolutely appalling, and yet that's the reality we sadly live in. Haha, I kid. When I heard "adult" spinoff, I'll admit, I expected 1 something tackling stigmatic issues banned from YA or 2 sex and finally, a fuck or two the word and the meaning, take em both.
We get neither. Pop culture wise, this book will be completely dated. You get some extremely current references with are concurrent with society. We're talking measly things like snapchat, Kate Middleton lol, Friday Night Lights but then we also talk about issues such as the GFC, a nation slipping into recession and lack of tourism and hence profit to sustain the economy and refugees.
Sex is definitely discussed and references and there's a whole lot of innuendoes. Is there anything explicit? I'd say we haven't entirely ventured into the realm of "adult" fiction, as of yet. Expletives are still redacted. I had to fill them in myself and god knows I have the filthiest mouth in the world and most probably took the expletives a notch or two up.
In that manner? Still censored. But I suppose this is a "ladylike" diary so Overall, completely sweet. Made me nostalgic. Ends with so much more room for exploration. Will probably continue on, duh, seeing as it's the most profitable series out there. You see, kids, Princess Mia has grown up, and so have we, who shared her journey.
There's more of her to come and let's just say, we're all at the age where we're raking in the dollar bills so we can definitely afford to pay for it LOL. Jun 17, Cyndi rated it it was amazing. All the times I imagined the marriage of our heroine and hero throughout this series, I did not see this coming. Feb 24, Pinky rated it it was amazing. I missed this series so much.
After reading this book, I realized how much I missed this series. I read this series thee years ago and then I joined Goodreads a year later.
I loved the characters and still do and I am so glad I got to read this book. I am so happy with everything that happened in this book and more than satisfied with the ending. If you haven't heard about the Princess Diaries, where have you been???? It's about a girl named Mia, who lived with her mother. One day, she finds ou I missed this series so much.
One day, she finds out that her father is the Prince of Genovia and that she is the princess. Her life changes in one day and she doesn't know what to do. While dealing with these things, she finds out that her mother and algebra teacher are dating.
So the Princess Diaries is basically all of her teen life and how she deals with these problems and much more. The Royal Wedding takes place after the Princess Diaries, so if you haven't read the series, don't read this book. It has almost all the characters from the Princess Diaries but they are all mature adults. It shows how much they moved in life and what position they are in. I really loved this, although some parts were cliche.
It's funny how in this book, Mia's friend mentions that her life is kinda cliche. Mia hasn't changed a bit, she is still funny and obnoxious but she is much more mature. He hasn't changed a bit either, and I loved his dialogue in this book. I loved how we got to see text messages between each of the characters and it was so interesting.
I felt like I was going back in time and reading this three years ago. Lily is still sassy and funny, just the way I like her, and I love how she says everything that she thinks. This romantic, funny, unique novel will keep you hungry for more. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop until you finish the whole book.
It's one of those books that stick with you for the rest of your life. I highly recommend this book and believe that you will enjoy it as much as I did. Nov 19, Rachel E. Carter rated it it was amazing Shelves: May 29, Emily Mead rated it it was amazing Shelves: Review coming on my blog soon: That was before I even knew YA was a genre. I absolutely love LOVE. I absolutely loved Mia.
She was my absolute role model and hero. Because I said. It was totally awesome, and something I love about this whole series. On a related note, Lilly. Like Tina Hakim Baba, for example, the romance book lover. Oh, also, Boris comes back. Book Grandmere is NOT like this. Even more so in this one than in the rest. Which, come to think of it… 7. Have I mentioned Michael yet? Well, not that Michael. I do love non-traditional writing formats. These books — ALL of them — are just so funny.
And just the situations that she gets into…I mean, Meg Cabot is a genius for humour. This little girl Olivia is the most adorable thing in the world and I loved her to pieces. How to cope with the media Despite paparazzi every which way, and several scandals threatening to ruin everything, Mia keeps her head above water and deals with it mostly in the best possible way.
For an adult book it was still pretty clean. Which were hilarious, because we started off with Mia as an awkward year-old. Excellent pop culture references, as per usual. A lot of the references in the original books are from the nineties, when I was either 1 not born or 2 crawling around on the floor somewhere.
So that was nice. Which is very sad. Just such a nice fluffy read, you know? Which is GOOD every now and then. Because I cannot say it enough.
