Hi Everyone,

I have decided to do something a little bit different for the blog. I am going to be going back to my childhood book loves and reading them again – or trying new material from these authors. I will still continue to love my crime and horror but I want to see if the tone is appropriate for the age group etc

The first book I started with was the Princess Diaries and I just read the first one – there is a whole series.

These were some of my favourites. Mia Thermopolis is 14 years old and lives with her scatty mum in a Manhattan loft. She has a normal live until she finds out she is a Princess.

Read this book reminded me very much of my teenage self Mia is extremely self absorb and emotional. She is scared to assert herself and is totally in love with Josh Richter the best looking boy in the school. Her best friend is Lilly and she has a TV show on public access TV. This book is fun and fluffy and although there are some hints of sex and innuendo in there it is not inappropriate. Some of the scenes are actually genuinely really funny.

This book allows girls to fantasize about being a Princess in a normal setting.

Due to the references this is probably not appropriate for children below 12.

Format: I own this on the Kindle

Pages: 234

Goodreads Score: 3.7 (I scored it a 4)
