The Princess Diaries Series
"So, what I want to know is, if my dad's an actual prince, how come I have to learn algebra?" Mia ponders this, and much more, when she finds out that her father is prince of Genovia. Living with her cool artist mom in New York City, Mia can't imagine leaving to become princess in Genovia. But because her father can't have any more kids, she is the heir to the throne. Accepting her title means getting lessons on being a perfect princess and leaving Manhattan - will Mia eventually give in to her father and become Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo?
Meg Cabot is one of my favorite authors! Mia is a normal girl who finds out she's a princess of a small country. It is so funny how the story unfolds and continues through all ten plus books. The characters are so funny all on their own: Grandmere, Lilly, Mr. G, her mother, her father, Michael Boris, etc. I could picture each person so clearly. The whole series is fantastic. When I started the series, number 6 had just come out. I read all of them one after another and couldn’t wait for number 7 to come out. I can’t wait for my girls (6 years old twins) to be old enough to read Mia’s journey to becoming a princess.
I believe I mentioned before that there is an amazing book store in Dayton Ohio – Books & Co. They hold the best “meet the author” events. I had the pleasure of meeting Meg at such an event. She is absolutely amazing. She was so lovely, hilarious, and talkative. Also, she took questions from both adults and teens. I had ever book of hers (probably at least 20) for her to sign. She even personalized them all. If I could just get her to sign my Allie Finkle books now!
Series: The Princess Diaries, Princess in the Spotlight, Princess in Love, Princess in Waiting, Princess Project, Princess in Pink, Princess in Training, Party Princess, Princess on the Brink, Princess Mia and Princess Forever. I recommend
