Review: Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot
Summary from Goodreads:
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?
Ever since I heard about a new book in the Princess Diaries Series I wanted it so badly! I've read the series since I was in 4th/5th grade and Mia is one of my favorite characters (and I enjoyed the two films as well because of Anne Hathaway).
It was such a fun book because I was sucked back into Mia's world right away, Cabot did a great job picking right back up.
The twists and the live choices that happened in the book were amazing, and I really want another one!
I recommend reading the first ten books in the series before picking this one up, it helps with a lot of the characters and jokes.
Five Stars Out of Five.
