Thank Goodness for Libraries!!!
But, I guess to some people, unfortunately, I don't have a life, and read way to much, but let's be honest, I could care less. I LOVE reading! There's a reason why I have probably about two hundred books by now on my book shelf in my room; I just can't stop!
So, in my last entry I gave you an over view of how the movie compares to the books, I want to focus on the story aspect a little bit more :).
So the series, like I already mentioned, I believe takes place in Mia Thermopolis's high school years. So between the first and tenth books, it takes place during her freshman, sophamore, junior, and senior year. In the first novel Mia finds out from her Dad (who is not dead, but only suffered from a small attack of Testicular cancer) that Mia is the heir to the throne of the small principality nation of Genovia, of which he is the prince of. Mia doesn't like that idea, of her being a Princess, but has no choice but to take Princess Lessons from her mean, intimidating, Grandma, who also happens to have her eyeliner tattooed on.
