I received this book for free from blog tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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?
Mia is now twenty-six years old. She’s come far from her teen years and has proven to be a wonderful princess of Genovia. She has wonderful supportive friends, a job she loves, a loving but meddling family and Michael, her high school sweetheart. Then she finds out something about her father that could change her life forever.
I pretty much devoured this one. Written in a diary style, it includes written diary entries in Mia’s narrative style. There’s also snippets from newspapers, Internet articles and my favourite one of all text messages. So many funny bits, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. There’s also a running story-line which I was truly invested in and comparing this to the previous stories, you know Mia has grown up and matured into a wonderful adult.
Not only does Meg Cabot get into the heart and soul of her main character, but she also gives sunny personalities to the secondary characters. Mia’s two best friends have been there from the beginning and I love how different they each are yet they are both so supportive and loving towards Mia. Lily and Tina are just the best fictional friends you could ask for. Then there’s Michael who is still the smartest, yet very wily and flirty at the same time. His emoii stories made me laugh out loud too. Can I also say how romantic his proposal to Mia was?? AHH SO CUTE *swoons* I don’t know if I should comment about Mia’s Grandmere because some of the things she said made me angry, but I have to remind myself she’s also fictional.
Reading Royal Wedding brought me back to my teen years and I loved every minute of it! I’m so glad Meg Cabot decided to add another final book to the collection. It just made it that much sweeter. If you haven’t read this series yet, give it a go..I know you’ll laugh out loud as much as I did.
