Goodreads Synopsis:

The third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot.

Princess Mia may seem like the luckiest girl ever. But the truth is, she spends all her time doing one of three things: preparing for her nerve-racking entree 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 in love is not the fairy tale it’s supposed to be…or is it?

Princess in Love is the third book in the beloved, bestselling series that inspired the feature film starring Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews. Beautifully repackaged in paperback, this title will appeal to new readers as well as fans looking to update their collection.


This is my favorite book in the series so far.

There was lots of tension in this story. Mia is dating Kenny, but she is in love with Michael. She is persuaded to send Michael secret admirer cards. There was a lot of confusion at the end of the story, but I loved the ending!

One of my favorite parts of the book was Mia’s list for looking after her cat, Fat Louie, for while she is away in Genovia. He needs water from different sources in particular dishes around the apartment. He also needs his special collection of shiny things to remain undisturbed, among other things. This list was so funny! It reminded me of my own dog who is quite finicky himself. We have to leave a similar list of instructions when we go away.

The end of this story was so good! I can’t wait to continue the series!
