The Princess Diaries (Princess Diaries, 1)
About this deal
This is honestly such a great capsule of chronicling what it was like during the first year or so of COVID. Mia/The Princess Diaries is actually the perfect way to capture it because Mia not only runs a small country but the cast of characters already has every archetype that we encountered during the early days of COVID: Royal Wedding Disaster (set during Royal Wedding, of course) – Olivia’s half-sister Mia is very busy learning how to take over the country while trying to plan a wedding and her father is actually getting remarried himself-to Mia’s mother!-and spends most of his time “renovating” the summer palace, although Grandmere says he is just hiding from the wedding preparations. Olivia hardly gets to see either of them. Fortunately, Grandmere has her own plans for Mia’s wedding, and needs Olivia’s help to pull them off. I knew it would be *an experience* to read a book solely about someone's experience during the pandemic. But with the recent declaration of the official end to the pandemic, it just hits different & not in a good way. The other day I read something about doing more Princess Diaries movies. Well, turns out there already are some materials available for inspiration. What’s the Princess Diaries series about? I sort of hope there's no more entries but at the same time I don't really want the series to end on this note.

A student at AEHS, Tina is the daughter of a Saudi Arabian oil sheik and a British former supermodel. Because of her father's status, she has to have the protection of a bodyguard, Wahim, which isolates her from the other students until Mia sits with her after a fight with Lilly in the first novel. Royal Crown– Olivia Grace Clarisse Mignonette Harrison should be having fun. Her best friend is visiting from America, her sister’s royal coronation is only three days away (the first coronation of a female ruler in two centuries), and she’s even got a new boyfriend who is actually a very smart and charming prince! Young Adults' Choices for 2002" (PDF). Archived from the original (PDF) on December 15, 2013 . Retrieved February 1, 2014.The novel sets in the Middle Ages and it was so authentic. The language, the names and the descriptions, just everything made me feel as if I really was in the Middle Ages with the characters. You can see that Meg put a lot of research into it. Hugo Fitzstephen has finally returned home after ten years away in Jerusalem fighting in the crusades. He and his squire Peter are on their way to his home where he'll take over the title of Earl since his father, the Earl of Stephensgate, died while Hugo was away. Hugo always had a way with the ladies and longs for some female companionship. He may get his wish when he spies a beautiful young woman bathing naked in a spring. When she disappears into a waterfall, Hugo loses sight of her. The next thing he knows is that the young woman is holding a knife to his throat and makes him her prisoner. Hugo can overpower and escape from the beauty, but he goes along with her game since he is having so much fun. Mia lived most of her life in Greenwich Village and uses a talent for writing to chronicle her life in personal diaries.

The MCs, Finnula and Hugo, were good characters. They could have been fleshed out a bit more but I still liked how they complemented each other. Even the side characters were entertaining and had great comedic relief. And a grown up Mia never makes mistakes. She’s perfect while everyone around her is childish. With the addition of the twins it would have been fun to read about parenting fails and relationship dynamics under quarantine but instead the story is all about what everyone else is doing wrong and how much Mia loves wine.My friend called me one night at 1 am and started talking about this book. She read this book during her teenage life and it was very exciting to her at that time. I was so down that day, sad and miserable really. So when she was telling me this light, fluffy romantic story, I felt like this is what I really needed right now. She described the whole story for 2 hours. It will forever be a beautiful memory for me. Project Princess – Princess Mia embarks on an epic adventure for one so admittedly unhandy: Along with her cohorts from school, she’s off to build houses for the less fortunate. It doesn’t take Mia long to realize that helping others is very hard work. The writing and plot were my favourite bits of this book though! Cabot's signature sarcastic humour and lively storytelling were the main reason I finished reading this book. There were several moments when I was giggling at hilarious dialogue and the nasty mishaps these characters kept falling into.
