What? A princess Me Yeah, right.Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there's nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra.Is she ever in for a surprise.First Mom announces that she's dating Mia's Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn't have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?

I think it‘s odd how both of the books I‘ve read this year with movie adaptations have bad relationships that are not displayed in said movie. I would have like to seen Mia deal with her mother not being a responsible adult but, hey, it‘s a ten book series dot there‘s still time. Based on personal experience, it bugs me to hear a character complain about being flat chested the entire book, but I like the body sensitivity rep. For ⬇️

Zoe-h ⬆️ these reasons and many more I wanted to not enjoy this book, but I couldn‘t help deeply liking it. It is likely I will buy the next one. 4⭐️ 1mo

There are quite few “Are you there God? It‘s me Margaret.” moments with a “Clueless” feel. Not terribly deep but endearing.

Not my best color match for #Pantone2022 but close. Also completed my #Booked2022 prompt about a royal.

So, this book was very short, so it was easy to get through. But I really didn't enjoy it. I am not the right audience for this book. I haven't seen the movie in forever, so I have it on right now for background noise. #BookToMovie

HollyBolly I read this after seeing the movie a while ago while I was in high school or maybe college. Thus is one of those rare instances where the movie was better. 4mo
ElizaMarie @HollyBolly YES! I rarely say that the movie was better, but this one is definitely the case! 4mo

I‘m really not enjoying this one. She is too awkward teen for me. Maybe I‘m too old for this one. Seriously thinking to DNF it but I‘m about 40% in

@AkashaVampie @AnansiGirl @jb72 @AsYouWish @mollyrotondo @Bibliobliss @Butterfinger

jb72 I find it awkward. I‘m definitely not the intended reader. I‘ll finish it since it seems to be a quick read. 4mo
mollyrotondo I read this one when I was a teenager and struggled with it then lol this is definitely a more entertaining movie than read. 4mo
ElizaMarie @DGRachel - sorry the phone had bad service so it posted this a billion times! I might end up DNFing it. It‘a not too long so I might be able to breeze through it but…. Life‘s too short too! 4mo

ElizaMarie @kamoorephoto - sorry my phone! But yeah I liked the movie. Also in the movie she is less self centered and less whiny 4mo
ElizaMarie @jb72 I have about an hour left. I can muster through an hour. I have some chores to do. SO I can do it that way. I don know if going #AudioCommute for this was the right call. Its read by Anne Hathaway (who I love) but she is really playing up the whiney teenage drama! 4mo
ElizaMarie @mollyrotondo YES! I am thinking this one is a definite - Movie-IS-Better type of thing here. 4mo
jb72 @ElizaMarie I didn‘t care for the movie either. I watched it the other night. But then again I‘m not a fan of Hathaway. I did like the ending of the movie. 4mo
ElizaMarie @jb72 So, its not really my “type“ of media (too light for me!) but.. I remember thinking the movie was cute. Nothing amazing but nothing horrible. I am gonna see if I can find it on one of the streaming platforms and have it on (probably as background noise too!) 4mo
jb72 @ElizaMarie I watched it on Disney Plus. 4mo
ElizaMarie @jb72 I just put it on :) 4mo

Also might try doing a poll to see what everyone would wanna watch for the week. 4mo

AkashaVampie @PageShifter awww im sorry sweetie. The movie is on other things but u have to pay for it. it looks like its about $5 on Prime, Vudu, Apple TV, Youtube, Google Play. Not sure if that is something u can afford, but its an option. 4mo

Hello. If u didn't see my posts from yesterday, here is what's up! I have planned a watch party for tonight @ 7:30pm EST (sorry if thats super early where u live) for the #NWC book of Jan & Feb, The Princess Diaries. Sadly if u are joining in, u either need to own the movie or have a subscription to Disney Plus. Was really hoping that screen sharing was going to work! 😢 Everyone is welcome.

Look forward to chatting

AkashaVampie If u dont have disney plus and can afford like $5, the movie is on Prime, Vudu, Apple TV, Youtube, Google Play. Not sure if that is something u can afford, but its an option. 4mo

I don't have much to say about this one. I liked it but didn't love it. It's nice for a light read in between some heavier stuff. I can imagine how it would be a great read for those who always wished they would become a princess later. For me it was more of an acknowledgement that I didn't want that.

The story might sound like a dream to most girls, but Cabot's protagonist is convinced this will be a nightmare for her. I liked that she touched on the potential downsides of the princess life in a way that felt true to the character & age group. At the same time, it didn't go deep enough for me, and often felt more like telling than showing. There's probably more to explore in future volumes, but I'm not convinced I want to continue.

Man, is this a throw back or what? Besides Harry Potter, Meg Cabot's The Princess Diaries was another book series that was very important in my life. It is so nice to return to the life of Mia Thermopolis. It is a little dated and Mia can be very naive, but that is exactly how teenagers act. But it was still a great read, it was really fun and just nostalgic for me. I think I'll enjoy this series. 4 out of 5

A nice, quick read. I am one of the rare people who has not seen the adaptation, but I‘ve heard good things about it and the books. I love the concept (and that it‘s written as a diary!!) but I‘m not sure how I feel about Mia. I found her a bit annoying. Either way I still enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next book!

This was a cute listen for my walks and drive to work. Very short and loved that it was narrated by Anna Hathaway!

(Must admit I liked the movie better!)

We all know this story - Mia finds out she is actually a princess - not just a regular high school student. I did really like her character and her interactions with everyone else in the story. Typical teenager.

Just definitely geared to a younger audience.

Wt if u were an ordinary girl and someone or your family member tells you that u r a princess, wt would your reaction be? Surprised , shocked , happy , sad , confused? . This happens with the school freak , Mia thermopolis.Her grandmother decides her looks and behaviour but it's not easy for Mia or Amelia .

When I first found this book in the YA section of the library, I have to admit that I was not convinced. Looking at the cover and reading the blurb about a girl who had just been told that she was a princess, I thought that I was years beyond it

However, giving it a chance was one of the best decisions that I made...the whole series is hilarious (and definitely not for young children!)

A perfect example of not judging a book by it's cover 😂

CoffeeNBooks I enjoyed this series, and now have a set of these books in my classroom library. 3y

Day 1: YA vs historical fiction
I call this one "From Genovia to Mankato"
My favorite YA book is The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot. The series is a delight, watching Mia grow from student in NYC into princess of Genovia. Meg has a lot of great series but loved the Betsy-Tacy books growing up (which are historical fiction and YA!) Turn of the century Minnesotan Betsy's coming of age parallels Mia in many ways. I ❤️ both series.

I purchased two of the sequels at a library sale, so I figured it would be a good thing to read the ones in front of them first! I have always enjoyed the movie (haven‘t seen the sequel) for what it is, and I think that holds true here. I think my teenage self would have enjoyed this book, and I enjoyed it as well. I hope the next few books in the series hold up as well!

GingerAntics Is the movie based off of the book? 4y
keys_on_fire @GingerAntics The first movie is based off the book, but the sequel Royal Engagement was not 4y
GingerAntics Oh so they diverge at the sequels. Interesting. Definitely checking this out. 4y

Thanks Netflix for having this movie! The book was another one of my favorites that I read multiple times! And the movie I had recorded from tv onto VHS. So I don‘t think I‘ve ever watched the full uncut movie 😆😆😆
