Princess Mia may seem like the luckiest girl ever.

But the truth is, Mia spends all her time doing one of three things: preparing for her nerve-wracking entrée into Genovian society, slogging through the congestion unique to Manhattan in December, and avoiding further smooches from her hapless boyfriend, Kenny.

For Mia, being a princess and in love is not the fairy tale it’s supposed to be… or is it?

I loved this installment in the Princess Diaries series. I knocked it down half a star because I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the last books. However, I still really loved it. My biggest complaint about the book was that Mia’s relationship with Kenny seemed so forced. I feel like Mia thought she needed a boyfriend, and therefore was trying to make herself like him. However, in the end, things ended the way that I wanted them to.

The pace of this series is very slow. Three books into the series and Mia is still fourteen. This isn’t really a downfall for me, however. Although I’m definitely used to young adult series moving through time a bit quicker, I think it fits well. The voice and humor were on point in this novel, as it was in the previous books. And as in the previous books, this was a super quick read; and I listened to it on audiobook through Scribd.

Overall, I would definitely recommend it and cannot wait to continue on with the series. I have already read book four, but I think I want to purchase these in paperback before I continue on past that.
