    Mmmmph. Okay.

    So this is the worst one yet.

    Which is not that hard, because the first and second books in this series were like, nonstop barrels of laughs. Real walks in the park. Amusement park levels of fun, if you're a normal person and find them to be extremely fun, and not me who sees them as Nausea Central with like an eighty dollar admission cost.


    This was just a liiiiiittle too dramatic and repetitive. Don't get me wrong, the other two books were fun precisely because they're very dramatic and, yes, very repetitive - but this was just TOO MUCH.

    Or maybe I'm just bitter because that slow burn romance I hyped up in the last review was NOT very slow-burn this time around. :(

    Why not both tho.

    Bottom line: Probably I'll continue this reread but now it will be BESMIRCHED by MILD DISAPPOINTMENT.

    Loved it! Man, am I flying through this series or what?
    This is a reread for me.. I wanted to reread this series because
    1. I love this series and I've never reread them so I thought, hey! why not!
    2. A Royal Wedding is coming out in June AND I'M SO EXCITED I CAN'T WAIT!!!

    (view spoiler)[ Some of you may not be able to relate to the whole Kenny issue that Mia found herself in.. but that's probably because you can speak your mind. When I was Mia's age, I could TOTALLY see myself having something like that happen to me. Where a guy friend likes you, and because you don't say anything you basically start going out.. even though Mia has no feelings for the guy (past friendship feelings I mean) she really just didn't want to hurt his feelings. (I too worry about hurting other people's feelings ALL. THE. TIME.) Then there was the part of her that had WANTED a boyfriend for so darn long and now that she had one, I think part of her just didn't want to give that up. I mean, she's only 14.. give the girl a break. All of her friends had boyfriends. I definitely think she should have told Kenny MUCH much sooner though that she just wanted to be friends.. how hilarious was it that Kenny thought Mia liked Boris?! Yikes...

    ONE of the reasons why I loved this book was because of Michael. What did you all think when Mia started giving him those cute little cards with the poems in them? Then he made that game for her?! Wasn't that the cutest?! Of course, Mia screamed, fell over in her chair, then ran crying to the bathroom.. but could you blame her? I mean, she thought that this super cute senior who she was in love with was making fun of her feelings? (Well, she thought he was anyways..) I was SO happy that her Grandma talked her out of the fire escape so she went the dance. Then Michael and her kissed! <3 So cute.

    Who also loved how Mia started her own press conference, and told everyone that all of her cousin's proceeds from the dresses would be going to Greenpeace? I love it! I was so proud of her!

    Who was also SOMEWHAT proud of her when she pulled the fire alarm? And crushed Lana's phone? Okay.. so maybe those aren't things to be super PROUD about... but at least Mia is standing up for herself.. sorta? The phone smashing definitely was. You know how many times I WISH I would have just picked up a mean girls phone and smashed it with MY boots? Ya.. A lot. But I never have. (Maybe that's for the best.. I mean, Mia did get suspended..)

    Freaking loved this! My heart is warm and I'm so so happy! Stayed up until 3AM finishing this baby ♥ Mia and Michael are officially one of my OTP's! This book was so much better than the second one.

    One thing I don't understand is why are the books of this series so short? Is completely unnecessary, as they feel like one big book split into a dozen. Between books 1-3 there is not clear division, and it bothers me because I feel like they pull me off the story for no reason. Hey, at least the books are cheap, and you can find almost all of them on Book Outlet.

    I'm dying to dive right into the next book BUT I am in a book buying ban until the end of Easter and I don't want to finish the 4th book without having the 5th one :(

    After a long time, that I had some moment of laughter while reading this...
    Hope that will continue till the end of this series.
    I wish my favorite character; Michael will appear in the next book too.........

    Another adorable addition in the series. Didn't love this one quite as much as the first two, it was a little more boy-focused, but overall still really enjoyed it and am excited to get to Genovia next :)

    I know I'm waaaaaay older than the target audience for these books, but I loved this book, even so. As I was reading this I was thinking, That's exactly like I was in high school. Well, except I wasn't a princess . . . and I grew up in Missouri, not NYC . . . and my mom wasn't married to my algebra teacher . . . and I wasn't so lucky to have the big brother of my best friend ever like me . . . Okay, I guess this book was nothing like me. But, still I could relate to so many of the feelings Mia unloaded into her diary. All of her insecurities about her feelings for Michael, and then her inability to come forward and say how she was feeling -- that totally played out like it was straight from my high school playbook. Now, as a grownup, I'd have to say that her actions toward Kenny were totally selfish and unkind. If I had been her mother or grandmere I would never have told her to stick it out with him until something better came along, and so that she could have a date to the dance and a good grade in biology. But, sadly, I know that in the same situation at that age my selfish self would have probably done the same thing. Wrong? Yes, but maybe that's why I could relate to the dilemma that Mia faced in this book. Poor Kenny! Adolescence isn't always our finest moment of decision making and altruism. Now, having said all of that, I LOVED the ending. Yea Michael! He put so much work into his response to Mia, and then after she freaked out, he didn't back down. I know that it seemed as if so many of the kids I went to school with had these ideal love lives. They seemed to magically walk right into relationships with their perfect match. I, on the other hand, felt a lot like Mia. I felt awkward, ugly, and undesirable. I didn't really believe that there was a person on the planet who could really choose to ask me on a date. I think that is why I never really recognized when people were actually asking me out. It just never occurred to me that anyone would actually do that, so I brushed guy after guy off. Oh, the knowledge of hindsight! But I digress! I think that that is what I related to so much in this book. Mia is completely infatuated with Michael. On another side note: I do think that these teens throw around the L word (love) a little liberally. They aren't in love yet. Love takes a little more time and effort. But, to be fair, I threw the l word around a lot at that age too. Every relationship was a movie story to me. So, back to my review -- Mia is infatuated with Michael, but she cannot see any of the things that Michael does in return. She doesn't notice that he is unhappy with Kenny's actions. She doesn't see the little things that he does to show her that he cares. In this relationship, like in most relationships in life, a lot of pain could have been avoided if the two principles would simply sit down and really TALK to each other about their feelings. But, that does expose us to someone shooting our feelings down or ridiculing us, and I can see why Mia would avoid doing it.

    I'm going to stop reviewing now before feeling the need to unload all of my neurotic high school behaviors. I'll just say, that once again, Meg Cabot writes a funny, sweet account of one young girl who is learning to find her place in the world. Her situation is enhanced because of her role as a princess, but the reality is that many young girls have the same struggle to find self-actualization and recognize how they fit into this world. They also yearn for love with someone who fits their personalities completely. They struggle to be noticed without being noticed too much for the wrong reasons. They want respect and friendship that is real. I love these books because Cabot taps into those needs in a funny way that can also show the strength of youth to see the world around them as it is as they find their way in it. I loved this book, and I will keep reading in the series, hoping that future books continue this smart, funny style.

    My reaction after finishing this one:


    I cried a little and squealed a lot .I swear to God,my mom came into my room like:


    But I didn't care at all.I was like:


    I'm smiling while writing this,something is seriously wrong with me...I'm in love with Michael.If someone told me that I'll be reading The Princess Diaries series again in high school and be more emotional about it than when I was 12 years old,I wouldn't believe him.But it's true.I'm pretty sure that 6 years ago I didn't squeal this much because of the ending.But honestly,the whole book was so fun and interesting.Sebastiano is such a cutie and Lilly is being cool + Grandmère is awesome.

    Favourite quotes:

    ''Saturday, December 12, 8 p.m., the Loft
    Saturday, December 12, 9 p.m., the Loft
    I just had to go out and see the part where Bruce Willis throws the explosives down the elevator shaft, but now I am back to work.''

    ''The way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if pretty soon I start wearing ripped-up fishnet stockings and dyeing my hair black. Maybe I'll even start smoking and get my ears double-pierced or something. And then they'll make a TV movie about me and call it Royal Scandal. It will show me going up to Prince William and saying,'Who's the most popular young royal now, huh, punk?' and then headbutting him or something.''

    ''Grandmere says she can't get over the change in me. She says I seem taller. And you know maybe I am. She thinks it's because I'm wearing another one of Sebastiano's original creations, designed just for me,just like the dress that was supposed to make Michael see me as more than just his little sister's best friend . . . except that it turned out he already did. But I know that's not it. And it isn't love, either. Well, not entirely. I'll tell you what it is: self-actualization. That and the fact that it turns out I'm really a princess, after all. I must be, because guess what? I'm living happily ever after.''
