Hi there! The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot is definitely one of my favourite book series of all time. Sure, it's not super deep or thoughtful litterature (it's a chick lit), but reading about Mia's hilarious misadventures and successes never fail to crack me up. For those of you who've seen the movie, which is completely different from the book, the humour is really similar, so if you enjoyed the movie, you'll probably enjoy the books, as well.
If you have no idea what The Princess Diaries is about, here's a synopsis from Meg's website:
Even though it's meant to be a light read, there are a TON of things I learned from the princess. Keep reading for a few life lessons!
1. take a chill pill
2. listen to others (especially parents!)
3. forgiveness is divine
4. make new friends, but keep the old
5. treat people the way you'd like to be treated
Don't treat people like crap and don't be a crazy drama queen if you don't want people to do the same to you. It's just not cool.
6. weed out the toxic people in your life
People like that will only stop you from becoming the best version of you, so every once in a while, just think about who's in your life and ask yourself if they're doing you any good. I'm not saying that you think of them as a bunch of items on a list, I'm just saying that it's a good idea to be aware of the good and the bad in your life.
7. if you need help, ask for it
8. sometimes, you just really need a makeover
9. follow your heart and do what pleases YOU
