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?


Loving the simplicity of these covers!

Initial Thoughts

Really excited about this book! I was hoping we’d get to see Genovia this time!

My New BFF

I don’t really know who to pick as my bff in this book. Normally I like Mia but she was kind of annoying in this book. She had too much romance drama going on and it kind of turned me off this book a little.

My Crush

I’m really not liking any of the male characters. Except maybe Mia’s bodyguard. I think he’s hilarious and easily one of my favourites. He infidelity adds some humour where you’d think there wouldn’t be any.

Writing Style

I’m having a hard time writing about this book. I thought it was kind of boring and didn’t really live up to the expectations the first two books gave me. I thought Mia was being really immature the whole time. Also where did all these boys come from? Suddenly they’re everywhere.

Closing Thoughts

I was pretty disappointed in this book. I was expecting more because of the first two books. I’m really hoping the next book picks back up or this will be a really disappointing series. I just felt like the whole romance angle in this book could have been done better and I also don’t like any of the male characters so far. Why can’t there just be a nice, simple boy? Who’s also really attractive of course. I feel like I’m just saying how horrible this book was. It wasn’t horrible. I was just disappointed in the plot and the characters which seems like it deserves less stars but I still mostly enjoyed this book.
