Never before has the world seen such a Princess. Nor have her own subjects, for that matter. But Genovian politics are nothing next to Mia's real troubles. Between canceled dates with her long-sought-after royal consort, a second semester of the dreaded Algebra, more princess lessons from Grandmère, and the inability to stop gnawing on her fingernails, isn't there anything Mia is good at besides inheriting an unwanted royal title?

Soon after Princess Mia and Michael get together, she is swept off on a whirlwind trip to Genovia. Mia's inner thoughts revolve around Michael as she over-analyzes every aspect of their relationship. While that is humorous, I kept waiting for something more to happen. I realize that this is just one small piece of the series, and I'm glad that Mia found the reassurance she needed in her relationship. I guess as a reader, I was being greedy by wanting more.

I'm looking forward to picking up the next book in the series and seeing what else is in store for Princess Mia.

This is a great book! i would recommended this book for girls 13+. It does talk about how Mia's cousin was in the royal pool house doing "it" with 2 girls. But, overall this book was very good!
Good Points
I would recommended this book to all girls!

So Princess Mia is now in Genovia, the small principality that she will one day rule over. She really misses Michael and wishes that he was there with her. She has to go through so many things in Genovia. Her schedule is full with state functions. She cant wait to get back home to the loft.

When she does finally get back home, she is greeted with a message from Michael, but she doesnt want to chase him. She wants to be just like Jane Eyre.

Grandmère blackmails Mia into going to a ball, but it just so happens that the ball is on the same night as Mias date with Michael. Mia decides to make an appearance at the ball, but Grandmère tries to set her up with Prince Rene.

Mia manages to escape and make it Michaels apartment even though its really late. They have their romantic date after all, and Mia discovers her talent. Once again, Mia has a happy ending.

This is another romantic book in the series. Michael is such a great boyfriend for Mia. She really couldnt be luckier. With all her problems and troubles, Michael makes Mias life so much better. She always has something to look forward to. I hope Meg Cabot will continue to make their lives together great. Teen girls will love this book!

I was not really so happy with this book. All Mia talks about is what to get Mike, how she misses him, and other boring stuff. I think Mia is getting very annoying. I really thought of her toherwise, but I'm staring to find even Lana Weinberger more interesting. She has GOT to stop complaining. Period. But its ok.

mia cant seem to do anything right!!! she is getting so frusterated with trying to impress everyone. Not only that but mia isnt having good luck with the government of genovia. they dont seem to like her very much. Lets not even mention the parking meter incident and how mia cant stop the addicting habbit of chewing on her finger nails. what can mia do to make life better for herself?

This was a little dull in the beginning compared to the others in the series, but it was good nonetheless. She has just started being Micheal's girlfriend, but she still hasn't been on a date with him. It sucks. Tina breaks up her boyfriend, and Mia think Micheal will too. I love almost all of the Princess Diaries' endings, and this one doesn't dissapoint. They are all very sweet, and Mia is so lucky to have such a great boyfriend.

Princess in Waiting is about Princess Mia and her life as a ruler of a country and a high school student. Mia has found love with Michael Moscovitz. Now what? Now is the time for the paranoia sets it. Mia loves Michael, but she has her doubts. Does he really love her? Is he in love with her or does he just love her like he loves his dog? This book tells about Mia and her mission to find out just how much Michael loves her, while also having to deal with her duties as princess.

This was a good book, but the paranoia gets a little boring after a while. Otherwise, i enjoyed this book.

Mia is not the same girl I met in the first one. She may be a bit older but she stays the same. She constantly goes on and on about Michael--and he hardly pays any attention to her! Get a life! It's time to meet some new people already! Get over yourself!

Princess in Waiting is yet another Princess Diaries book about a girl named Mia Thermopolis, who happens to be the princess of a country called Genovia. Mia is finally going out with Michael Moscovitz, the guy she loves. But in Mia's point of view, she is messing up the relationship. She forgot Michael's birthday and she has to cancel their first date. She's convinced that because of this, Michael will break up with and is just moping and bracing herself for the moment. Meanwhile, she continues to take princess lessons with Grandmere. Mia is also convinced that Grandmere is trying to hook her up with her cousin Rene.

This was a pretty good book, like most of the Princess Diaries series, but what I don't like is how Mia always assumes the worst and spends the whole book stressing over it. She shouldn't do that all the time as it gets really annoying. But otherwise, the I liked it.

It wasn't as good as the first 3 books. It starts off with Mia in Genovia fulfilling her role as princess. She's missing her boyfriend Michael, whom she hasn't seen for a long time, and she complains a lot about not seeing him, having Grandmere boss her around, and for feeling like a talentless freak. It's pretty amusing the way Mia expresses herself in her royal diary. You'll enjoy it still if you liked all of Meg's other books. It's a quick read that's fun! The end turns out good since Mia finds out her talent( I won't reveal, but it's pretty obvious) and her love life works out. She figures out she doesn't really need her Queen Amidala underwear for good luck!
