My Rating:
Goodreads Summary: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, comes the very first adult installment, which follows Princess Mia and her Prince Charming as they plan their fairy tale wedding--but a few poisoned apples could turn this happily-ever-after into a royal nightmare.

For Princess Mia, the past five years since college graduation have been a whirlwind of activity, what with living in New York City, running her new teen community center, being madly in love, and attending royal engagements. And speaking of engagements. Mia's gorgeous longtime boyfriend Michael managed to clear both their schedules just long enough for an exotic (and very private) Caribbean island interlude where he popped the question! Of course Mia didn't need to consult her diary to know that her answer was a royal oui.

But now Mia has a scandal of majestic proportions to contend with: Her grandmother's leaked "fake" wedding plans to the press that could cause even normally calm Michael to become a runaway groom. Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia's father from the throne, all because of a royal secret that could leave Genovia without a monarch. Can Mia prove to everyone--especially herself--that she's not only ready to wed, but ready to rule as well?

My Review

When I found out that there was going to be another Princess Diaries book I looked a little something like this.





So was the wait worth it? Was it everything I thought it was going to be? Did Princess Mia still make me laugh and smile? 


It was everything I wanted and more! We jump right back into Mia's life and she is now an adult, just like her readers! I loved this. I never realized how much I had missed Mia and Michael and everyone until I started reading Royal Wedding. This book is a treat for all the Princess Diaries fans out there. I honestly probably don't even need to convince you to read this because you already plan on it. I'm guessing as soon as this baby comes out that this will be you. (It was how I looked when I was reading.)


I enjoyed every single second of my time reading Royal Wedding. I can't find a single thing that I didn't like about it. I welcomed back my beloved characters with open arms and they fell right in.


Royal Wedding was full of cuteness, realness, sweet moments, funny moments, and a whole lot of surprises.


You won't regret reading this. It was perfect. I have been a fan of the Princess Diaries series from the beginning and I couldn't be happier with this new addition. 


Now go get a copy and enjoy! (If you are not yet a Princess Diaries fan then you should become one!)

  3. I loved the movies. I'm curious who she married in the book. So happy the wait was worth it for you!
    You know there is a middle-grade version where Mia's relative I think is documenting her life as a princess is coming out?

  4. Love your gifs for this review. I stopped reading the Princess series half way through. Now that she has an adult continuation, I think I'm going to pick up the series again.

  6. I basically felt the exact same way about this book. It was perfection. It literally felt like catching up with best friends after years of being apart. All I can say is I'm holding out SO MUCH HOPE that there's going to be more adult installments!
