Review of Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot

Read for: Mount TBR Print & Series Challenge
Synopsis: "No one ever said being a princess was easy.

Just when Mia thought she had the whole princess thing under control, things get out of hand, fast. First there's an unexpected announcement from her mother. Then Grandmère arranges a national primetime interview for the brand-new crown princess of Genovia. On top of that, intriguing, exasperating letters from a secret admirer begin to arrive.

Before she even has the chance to wonder who those letters are from, Mia is swept up in a whirlwind of royal intrigue the likes of which hasn't been seen since volume I of The Princess Diaries."

My Review: This second book in the series was a definite improvement over the first book. While Mia is still a little immature, it is a little bit more age appropriate. Apparently the princess lessons are working as she is starting to think about the people around her as opposed to just herself. The book also read a lot faster than the first one, I had no problem reading it within a single day and enjoyed it. The storyline is developing nicely as well as the characters, it is great to get to know some of the sub-characters a little better too.
My Rating: This book was much improved compared to the first book, it actually makes me excited to read the rest of the books.  I am also seeing where the movie picked little things out of the different books to put together into a movie storyline.  I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. I've heard these books get better as the series progresses. I'll have to try it one day. I won't lie, the movie actually made me not want to read the books.

    1. Really?! You didn't like the movies? I really enjoyed the movies, granted it might have had a little to do with the cast they had. I am glad to hear that things will hopefully continue improving.
