Book Review: Princess Diaries – Princess in Love (Meg Cabot)

Princess in love

Plot: Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo may seem the luckiest girl ever.

She’s a princess, for starters. She also lives in New York City. And while she’s no supermodel, mirrors do not crack at her reflection. Best of all, she finally has a boyfriend.

The truth is, however, that Mia spends all her time doing one of three things: preparing for her nervewracking entrée into Genovian society under the slave-driving but elegant Grandmère, slogging through congestion unique to Manhattan in December, and avoiding further smooches from her hapless boyfriend Kenny.

All she wants is a little peace and quiet. and a certain someone else to be her boyfriend. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy-tale it’s supposed to be. or is it?

Rating: 7/10

Mia finally has what she’s always wanted – a boyfriend. However, since it backfired on her and is completely not the boy she wanted, she is back to her miserable state. She is also writing exams, and her grandmother does not seem to grasp that her education is just as important as her princess lessons. Knowing that she needs to break up with her boyfriend and confess her real feelings to Michael Moscovitz eventually, Mia is plagued by illness and stress. Can she sort out her love life, education and princess life this time?

Yay, book three and another round of fun. These books continue to entertain me and provide quite a large amount of giggles. The third book did feel like a filler since nothing really happened that couldn’t have happened in the other two previous ones, and even the constant run around with Michael eventually felt overworked. The book is still really quick to read and well written, and remains fun, but I can’t help but feel like it was just there as a publication and not really as a part of the story. I did enjoy the ending – Mia’s big moment with Michael was definitely worth the wait!
