Couldn’t Finish: Princess in Waiting by Meg Cabot
Paperback, 256 pages
Borrowed from Library
Stopped Reading at page 100
Omg. This is the book everyone warned me about.
While I was falling in love with the series, I kept getting comments that after the 3 or 4th book, they just stopped reading. I figured maybe I’d at least see what happens. What could be so hard about that? It’s only 224 pages most of the time and sometimes there aren’t even full pages. But this book is really really obnoxious.** Spoiler alert**She goes to Genovia after she finally starts dating Michael and whines about him the whole time. I didn't make it far enough to see what happens. I was probably this boy crazy when I was 14, actually, I definitely was this boy crazy, but I wasn’t as whiny nor did I do as much second guessing as Mia did in this book.
The first person, diary-like writing that was so charming for 3 books in a row, became yawn inducing and teeth-grinding this time around. I had to put it down!
