Meg Cabot really wrote a good book. If you like humor, snappy lines, distinct characters, and a great plot, this book is for you! It's about Mia (Amelia) Thermopolis, who is dealing with being the most unpopular girl at school. Soon though, she finds out she's the PRINCESS of a small country called Genovia. I LOVED THIS BOOK, and I bet you will too!
Anne Hathaway reads The Princess Diaries
This is not only a very cute chick-flick of a book, but Anne Hathaway does a brilliant job narrating the story. I haven't read a book I couldn't set down in a very long time, and this was just as addicting. I didn't want to take a break from listening to the energetic voice(s) of Anne Hathaway, and whenever I did, I couldn't wait to get back to the story.
Princess Diaries Book One.
This book rocked! I loved Meg Cabot and all her work. The big shock is how much different the book is from the movie, but it is still really good. It is almost like whole different story.
