  • 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 an [...]

  • 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, carin [...]

  • This is WAY different than the movie. Mia's personality is younger and sillier, but it became less irritating and more 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 more).

  • 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 becaus [...]

  • 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) we [...]

  • 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 ho [...]

  • 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 ( fict [...]

  • 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 time [...]

  • 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 purp [...]

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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 [...]

  • 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.

  • 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 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. [...]

  • 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 ac [...]

  • Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there's nothing worse than being a five-foor-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra.Is she ever in for a surprise.First Mom announces that she's dating Mia's Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn't have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance? - - - - -Rating: 3/5 PenguinsQuick Reasons: sometimes witty, mostly annoying main character (sorry, Mia, I just didn't l [...]

  • This review was originally posted on The Moonlight LibrarySUMMARYMia Thermopolis’ extraordinarily ordinary American teenage world is thrown upside down when she finds out she is the one and only heir and Princess to the throne of Genovia, a small but rich country bordering FranceBUILDINGI have to say, I know Genovia’s totally fake – I mean, what country can afford not to tax its citizens because it can rely on the money it makes from tourism to fix repair its infrastructure and fund its sc [...]

  • 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, [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • O.k this review is about Meg Cabot's books more 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 [...]

  • 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 more true to an actual awkward 15-year old’s life. I have no idea how Meg Cabot so accurately [...]

  • Where do I start with this? Meg Cabot is the author that has had the most impact on my life. I started reading her books when I was 12-ish and have been enjoying her ever since - she's been with me through all of my teenage years. This is my first time re-reading the Princess Diaries, and honestly I think I appreciate this book even more now - Mia Thermopolis is such a great role model for young girls! She's a fantastic character and her story is filled with humor, feminism, quick dialogue and l [...]
