Meg Cabot
269 pages
ISBN: 978-0-330-44855-0

Note: This is the ISBN for my British copy. But if you want to buy the American edition, you can click on the cover. It – as usually – leads you right to where you can order it.

Michael has left, and not just that, he has also dumped Mia! And as if that was not already enough drama, Lilly refuses speaking to her and someone created a website called (check it out, it really exists!) to write mean things about her. No, being Amelia Mignionette Thermopolis Reynaldo Princess of Genovia is not easy right now.

And as if all that was not enough already, she has to find a new Prince Charming, find a theme for a speech she has to hold – thanks to her grandmother, the Queen, and maybe even change the future of Genovia!

Once again, Meg Cabot allows us a glimpse into Mia’s life and thoughts with the ninth installment of the Princess Diaries. Mia has been a companion to many girls for the past years, but rumor has it, this will soon stop. Mia filled one more diary and that is supposed the end. What a tragedy!

Of course, Mia’s behavior is over the top, but if you remember your own teenage years, you’ll know that it was really like that for you as well. With Mia, you’re allowed a step away from the busy life and just have fun! Mia is hilarious, fun and leads a life full of intriguing adventures. I know for sure I’ll be sad if her adventures won’t continue.

Rating: 4/5


  1. I sort of stalled on this series. I should see if the library has them and finish. I think I have read up to book three... maybe book 4... Thanks for reminding me!

  2. My pleasure, Kailana!
    I think you're in for a treat if you still have a bunch of books to read from that series. It's so cute!

  3. Kathrin,
    Wow, I remember reading the first but I had NO idea it was this extensive of a series! WOW! I love checking in to see what you are reading because so often they are books that I didn't know existed!

    And because of this, I'd like to invite you to be a guest reviewer for my own blog. (It's exciting I promise). Please check it out at the link below. If you are interested please email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
