Review…Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot



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:

Royal Wedding is the eleventh book in author Meg Cabot’s wildly popular Princess Diaries Series and admittedly the first in the series I have read. I have seen the movie and probably wouldn’t have read this book but for the fact that the characters are now in their mid-twenties and this was definitely an adult novel. I really enjoyed it!

This installment follows Princess Mia in her current day-to-day life. Things start to get a bit excited, however, when not only does her boyfriend propose but also when a secret her father has been keeping for twelve years surfaces and threatens to change everyone’s lives….in a good way if they all play their cards right.

Along the way we are treated to Mia’s quirky and sassy inner monologue, written in diary fashion. There are also text messages between Mia, her friends, and her new fiance. I loved that most about this read. It was light and funny with a dash of snark that had me snickering. I also loved Mia’s Grandmere and their conversations were quite humorous as an outsider looking in.

All in all this was an enjoyable read, perfect for the beach or a lazy summer day at home. Full of funny moments and sassy quips, written in a style all modern-day readers can relate to, with texting conversations and pop culture references, it is a win! Thank you, Ms. Cabot, for a great read.
