Book Review: Forever Princess by Meg Cabot

Forever Princess by Meg Cabot
Genre: YA Fiction
339 pages, Hardcover
Borrowed from Library
Published: January 2009

What's a Princess to do?
It's Mia's senior year, and things seem great. She aced her senior project, got accepted to her dream college(s), and has her birthday gala coming up . . . not to mention prom, graduation, and Genovia's first-ever elections.
What's not to love about her life? Well . . .

(spoilers ahead)
This was the longest book and I definitely noticed. But I’m finally done with this series! YAY.

It was cute and predictable in a sort of endearing way and a gre at end to the series. I think after about 6 or 7 of these books, you either look forward to the formatting, or you’re annoyed with it. I’m sort of in the middle? I knew she’d end up with Michael, I knew she didn’t really like JP. But I was a bit surprised that JP wasn’t that into her either. Otherwise, it was an okay book. Read it if you want, but my favorites in the series remain The Princess Diaries and Princess in love.

Favorite characters are still Tina and Michael. And I’m also not the largest fan of Lilly even though they did revive their friendship. I saw that the novel Mia wrote (Ransom my Heart) is available to read. But from the blurbs featured in this book, I doubt I’d like to read it. But maybe you might want to??

All in all, I give Forever Princess 3 out of 4 stars! Recommended for fans of Meg Cabot and this series.

  1. By the end of the series, I didn't really like JP or Michael so I was kind of hoping for Mia to fly slowly. I was also pretty tired of the series itself but Tina and Butler always made me happy!

  2. I meant Lars, not Butler. I just confused Princess Diaries with Artemis Fowl for no reason I can think of.

  5. LOL I love this review. You sound so relieved to be finished. :P I didn't realize Mia's book was also featured in the Princess Diary books. Makes it seem a lot less random then.
