Read The Princess Diaries (The Princess Diaries, #1) Online Free - She's just a New York City girl living with her artist mom…
NEWS FLASH: Dad is prince of Genovia. (So that's why a limo meets her at the airport!)
DOWNER: Dad can't have any more kids. (So there's no heir to the throne.)
SHOCK OF THE CENTURY: Like it or not, Mia Thermopolis is prime princess material.
THE WORST PART: Mia must take princess lessons from her dreaded grandmère, the dowager princess of Genovia, who thinks Mia has a thing or two to learn before she steps up to the throne.
Well, her father can lecture her until he's royal–blue in the face about her princessly duty—no way is she moving to Genovia and leaving Manhattan behind.
But what's a girl to do when her name is PRINCESS AMELIA MIGNONETTE GRIMALDI THERMOPOLIS RENALDO?

If you've seen the movie version, this book takes up about the first third or maybe half of the movie (from what I remember), but don't let that fool you into thinking nothing much happens in this book.
Mia Thermopolis lives in Manhattan with her artist mother Helen, going to a private school call...

Note: contains spoilers.
Did you love this movie? 'Cause I did.
Decide that you should give the book a try? I mean it is only fair since you have seen the movie. Me too.
Want some advice? Don't bother.
Because I am assuming that you'll be picturing the amazingly gorgeous Anne Hathaway as the zany,...

This is WAY different than the movie. Mia's personality is younger and sillier, but it became less irritating and more endearing after a bit. I still mostly just wanted the book to be over, though.
I didn't realize this plot only covered like the first half of the movie and that so many things ha...

I first read this series YEARS ago but thought it was time for a reread with A Royal Wedding coming out this summer! I simply loved it! I thought maybe since I'm so much older I wouldn't like it as much, and that maybe I'd get annoyed even.. (Freshman Mia can be a little dramatic) but I didn't! I...

I never got around to reading this when I was the protagonist Mia's age, and since the book and movie series became so popular, I recently decided to take a trip back to childhood and finally read this book. It was a quick read, thankfully, but I didn't find it nearly as endearing as the movie ve...

Honestly, this book was a complete surprise for me! I had never read it (I know, I know) and I loved it!! So smart and clever and totally kick butt feminist. This book was so ahead of its time when it was first published. I don't know but I would guess there was backlash lol - I can't wait to pic...

Say hello to Mia Thermopolis, 14 years old and frustrated with teendom and it's innumerable woes.
To jot down a few of her frustrations:
1) She is the tallest girl in her class, has feet like skis, is gawky, geeky and has a chestline that is flatter than a surfboard.
2) Her mouse-brown/dishwater blo...

Ack, this is a little awkward, but I was actually kind of disappointed by the book. I think Rachel explains it really well in her review -- we just had certain expectations from the book based on having seen and loved the movie, and the book kind of fell flat in comparison. The main character was...
