Review: I actually really enjoyed The Princess Diaries which I wasn't sure if I would have because I remember seeing the movie and thinking it was alright.
I have to say that The Princess Diaries book is actually quite different to the movie.
I really liked it though. I liked Mia and felt bad for her because she was picked on. Lana was such a meanie.
I wasn't really sure how to feel about Mia's Grandmother. Sometimes she was nice and sometimes she wasn't very nice. I guess I will have to read more of the books to see how she develops as a person.
One thing that kind of annoyed me was that because I'd seen the movie I knew bits that happened in the book but it didn't stop me from enjoying the book.
Overall, I really enjoyed The Princess Diaries. I liked most of the characters as they were pretty cool. It was a really good, light read. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.
