Curious about Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries series? Check out these mini reviews for a taste of what they’re like!
The Princess Diaries: This is one of the best dairies I’ve ever read. Its extremely cute and funny. The writing is very “authentically teenage”, and very entertaining and well written. The main character, Mia, seemed like a typical teenage girl, which makes her easy to relate to. It will leave you wishing, just a bit that you were in her “five foot nine, flat-chested, freak of the school” Doc Marten shoes. A great book!
Princess in the Spotlight: It’s pretty obvious that Mia doesn’t really enjoy being the princess of Genovia. I mean it’s pretty stressful for any 14-year-old. She has to take Princess lessons, have a body guard follow her around and one day she has to inherit the throne of a country she’s only visited. This book was as great as the first “diary”. Its very funny, and entertaining. Mia still has her charm and wit. She is still very realistic, and easy to relate to. An awesome book. Read the rest of this entry »
