I’m not sure if i’ve said this before but The Princess Diaries is one of my favourite book series and Mia Thermopolis (aka Her Royal Highness Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo) is truly an inspiration.
so when i found out that MEG CABOT would be writing another book about ADULT MIA i totally freaked out.
Sadly…i had to wait till July to read it because it only came out earlier this month in the UK. and then my friend and i went to Waterstones to get it BUT THEY DIDN’T EVEN HAVE IT. we were heartbroken. i had to order it online then.
eventually it arrived in all its glory
AND THEN I JUST READ IT. i was supposed to savour it but i just NEEDED to read it and be immersed in the world of Princess Mia.
i was actually kind of scared to read it because i had such high expectations but i was not disappointed and it was the perfect book. it was just what i needed- full of madness and laughter and adorable moments and just the perfect escape and the perfect read. it’s everything i wanted and so much more!
Mia is as mad and neurotic as ever…
Michael is as adorable and dorky as ever with his emojis! haha
MIA AND MICHAEL #RelationshipGoals
i was like
why are they so frickin cute?!
the Proposal scene was just dghakdfjghakdfjhg
HONESTLY JUST TAKE ME TO THE BAHAMAS TO SOME SECRET ISLAND THANKS
Grandmere and her side eye and sass and insanity and her poodles were just brilliant
LARS AND THE ORANGE OMG…my fave was actually when he said to some woman that ‘no one wants you there’ (in Genovia)
seriously this book is one of those beautiful rare laugh out loud books
Mia and her friends were seriously #SquadGoals
i love all their text messaging and how they are still as crazy and supportive as ever.
OMG MIA’S BROTHER ROCKY IS SUCH A CRAZY KID WITH HIS OBSESSION WITH FARTING AND DINOSAURS. IT’S HILARIOUS.
and omg Mia’s dad…was like…just…so funny but you also felt sorry for him but HE STOOD UP TO GRANDMERE FINALLY AND TOOK CONTROL OF HIS LIFE FINALLY.
also yeah there are some MAJOR PLOT TWISTS
one of them i already knew about since she has her own book (*cough* Mia has a half sister Olivia Grace). so i do want to read From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess.
but the OTHER plot twist…well idk there were plenty of hints but it was just too good to be true or like…too obvious?! but it was SO FUNNY!
like this whole book was just me FEELING ALL THE FEELS
AND SERIOUSLY…THE END…OMG THE WEDDING…I DIED. IT WAS PERFECT. HER DRESS AND MICHAEL AND JUST IDUFGADFJKFJGH EVERYTHING WAS JUST SO PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL AND OMG IT WAS JUST RJGDJDFHGKDFJHGKJFDGKF MY BABIES…MY FAVES…SO HAPPY AND CUTE AND JUST KHGDKAJDFHKGJ URGH I AM SUCH A HOPELESS ROMANTIC BUT SERIOUSLY.
so all in all…if you haven’t read The Princess Diaries Series then please do…it’s about a girl who finds out she’s a princess and has to deal with bodyguards and her insane grandmother and her even madder friends and also falling in love and etiquette and trying to be a proper princess while being a high schooler in america etc and just it’s just wonderful. i just have a lot of feelings about this series and these characters. i mean…the films are brilliant and i love them but the books are completely different.
so thank you Meg Cabot
for writing such amazing characters and books. can’t wait for the NEW MEDIATOR BOOK NEXT YEAR!!!
