The books below include regular Princess Diaries books as well as some companion books. I'm reading the books in a chronological order and usually, this means the order in which Meg Cabot wrote and published them.
You can read my review of the first book here, the second book here and the third book here. You can read Part 1 of This Book Room: Princess Diaries here.
Each book is like a little gift, just waiting to be opened. Mia is such a typical teenager - she's paranoid, she's full of angst, and of course, there is a boy. I really feel these books should be read by a teenager (not only for emphasis on the fact that some of the content is a bit mature), but also because I wish I would've read these books when I was a teenager - I think I would've realized I'm not the only one who feels certain things (like, at times, craziness). Enjoy the summaries below!
Student body president, that is—nominated by her power-mad best friend, Lilly. This is not how Mia imagined kicking off her sophomore year, but as usual, she has bigger problems to worry about, like Geometry. And now that Mia's one true love, Michael, is uptown at college, what's the point of even getting up for school in the morning? But the last straw is what Lana whispers to her on the lunch line about what college boys expect of their girlfriends. . . . Really, it's almost more than a princess in training can bear!
Mia would give all the jewels in Genovia for the perfect present. Every year, Princess Mia spends the holidays in Genovia with Grandmère. This year, she's looking forward to the most perfect Christmas ever: her boyfriend, Michael, and her best friend, Lilly, are coming to Genovia, too. But even a princess's plans can go awry. Lilly has a lot to learn about palace protocol, and with all the state holiday functions Mia must attend, there's no time to linger under the mistletoe with Michael. Worst of all, Mia hasn't been able to find him the perfect gift. Can Mia stop her (bah-hum) bugging long enough to see that the perfect present has nothing to do with international express courier -- and everything to do with real love? (Though some shiny silver ribbon never hurts ...)
