I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. 


Summary:

Caution: Possible spoiler alert!


What would you do if you found out your parents have been lying to you for your whole life? This is what happened to Mia Thermopolis. Then, she finds out her full name is Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo. She’s not just an average New York teen. She is the heir to the throne of Genovia.


She finds this out when her father is worked up because he can’t have any more children. Mia doesn’t understand why this is such a big deal. Her father Phillipe, flies to New York to explain. He stays at the Plaza with Grandmere, Mia’s grandmother on her father’s side. 


In the middle of the Plaza, Mia finds out that she, Phillipe’s illegitimate daughter, is the heir to the throne of Genovia. She is now a princess. Mia is less than thrilled to hear this news. She already is an extremely tall freshman who is failing Algebra. 


On top of all of that, Mia soon finds out that her mom, Helen Thermopolis, is dating her algebra teacher! How much more embarrassing could her life get? Mia learns that she must take princess lessons every day after her daily Algebra review sessions. What will Mia do to continue high school as a normal teenager? Is that even possible now?


Review:


This book is a very captivating book. I love Meg Cabot’s style of writing. I recommend this book to anyone who likes Young Adult books with romance and fantasy. Mia is a very stubborn character, with a lot of personality. It will take a lot to turn an average New Yorker into Genovian royalty. This book is the first in a series of books. 


This book is available in Kindle, paperback, and hardcover format. If you do not have a Kindle, you can read it on another electronic device. This is also a perfect excuse to buy a Kindle. I love reading on my Kindle, especially at night!

The Selection

The Selection by Keira Cass I loved this book. It is one of my personal favorites. I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.  Imagine a chance to be a princess. In the Selection, 35 girls are given a chance to win the luxurious lifestyle of a lavish royal. For most people this is a dream come true, a chance to move up from the caste they were born in. For America Singer, this is not what she sees. She sees a life without her secret love, Aspen. America puts her name into the lottery, assuming she definitely will not be picked. America was born a 5 and her love, Aspen is a 6. If she marries him, she will move down in caste. When America is picked to enter the Selection, she is very surprised. She doesn’t care about the fact that the prince, Prince Maxon is in the highest caste, 1, where only royalty are. America goes into the competition expecting to hate Maxon. When she meets him however, America may begin to change her mind.  This book is the first book in a series. It is meant to entertai

The Betrothed

The Betrothed by Keira Cass I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars. Imagine catching the attention of a king. Lady Hollis does not need to imagine. She is thrilled that King Jameson seems to be interested in courting her. Jameson is a very kind king and one who Hollis admires. Hollis is not exactly the perfect child her parents wanted. They wanted a son who was obedient and behaved excellently. Hollis was far from that description. However, she could become royalty and that made her parents happy. They constantly were nagging her to be someone she was not.  When Hollis is invited to join King Jameson on a barge down the river. He floods her with compliments. Hollis throws a berry at another girl from court, hardly ladylike behavior. She falls right into the water. Jameson hardly ever laughs, but Hollis can make him laugh.  Then Jameson invites Hollis to join him to meet a family from Isolte seeking sanctuary. This family, the Eastoffes, have traveled to Coroa to escape from their k
