Returning to Genovia | From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess Mini Reviews

If you’re a follower of my blogs and reviews, you probably know that The Princess Diaries series is my favorite contemporary YA series EVER. It was my first and my most formative, and I fangirled so hard when I finally met Meg Cabot in person this year. So at her signing I picked up the first two books in her new Princess Diaries spinoff series, From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess, because I will do anything and read anything to be back in Mia’s world. Luckily, my first foray into Middle Grade in several years did not disappoint, […]

Mini Review Round-Up: The Boy is Back, These Shallow Graves, & Afterward

The Boy is Back was one of my most highlight anticipated books of the year. I loved the other installments in Meg Cabot’s Boy companion series, back when email was still a novelty, and I was excited to see her return to the technology format for this book (the story is told entirely through texts/emails/online news sources/etc.) While this book was a quick, light read, it seemed to be missing some of the charm of Meg’s older books. The romance felt sort of flimsy and the premise of the whole book was sort of strange and wacky in a way […]

Proposal (Mediator #6.5) & Remembrance (Mediator #7) by Meg Cabot | Review

After the success of Royal Wedding (the adult sequel to the YA Princess Diaries series) I have been beyond excited for the new Mediator books. I ordered this novella as a physical paperback (it’s tiny!) and it reminded me of the days I used to buy the Princess Diaries novellas at the bookstore, before e-readers were really a common thing. I had been seriously slumping since I finished Queen of Shadows, so switching up genres to paranormal and revisiting some of my favorite characters from the past (not to mention one of my first book boyfriends) seemed like the perfect […]

Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot | ARC Review

*Many thanks to HarperCollins for this review copy! This was one of my most anticipated books of 2015. There were literally squeals of happiness when I found out I was getting more of Mia’s story. And it did not disappoint. I was thrilled to have gotten an ARC of this at YALLWEST considering I was in the middle of an entire series re-read in preparation for the new installment. I was over the moon and rushed home and binge read the last few installments so I could get to this one. I had 100% faith in Meg Cabot that she’d […]


Princess on the Brink (#8) by Meg Cabot- Reread Mini Review

Princess on the Brink (#8) by Meg Cabot- Reread Mini Review

*This review will contain spoilers. This is the installment in The Princess Diaries where all of the long standing tensions and plot points really implode. While a lot of readers may see this as a tragic ending to a lot of long-standing features of the series, I found it really refreshing. Sure, Mia’s neurosis is in full force in this book, and she acts pretty immature about certain things, but I actually think beneath Mia’s obsessing she has some really valid points. Mia is faced with the earth-shattering proposition at the beginning of the installment of being in a long-term […]

The Princess Diaries Reread: Volumes 6-7

This is the second installment in my Princess Diaries Re-Read self-challenge in order to prepare for The Royal Wedding, which comes out in June! In this post I’ll be bundling my reviews for books 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5, and 7.75 Princess in Training (6): This book kicks off Mia’s sophomore year, and centers around another one of Lily’s insane plots she drags Mia into (nominating her to be class president against her will…for Lily’s own benefit of course). While I actually liked the presidency plot because it was nice to see Mia grow into herself more and become more confident […]
