Princess in the Spotlight (The Princess Diaries, Volume II) by Meg Cabot
(Started: August 13, 2010; Finished: August 17, 2010)

Just when Mia thought she had the whole Princess thing under control.
Things get out of hand, fast: 
Since Mia's the brand-new crown princess of Genovia, indomitable dowager princess Grandmère arranges a national primetime interview for her. With just a few innocent remarks, Mia manages to enrage her best friend Lilly, practically get one of her teachers fired, and alienate the entire country of Genovia. 
There's the havoc of the interview's aftermath and her dreaded princess lessons at the Plaza. Plus an unexpected announcement from her mother, and intriguing, exasperating letters from a secret admirer. Mia is swept up in a whirlwind of royal intrigue the likes of which hasn't been seen since volume I of The Princess Diaries. 
What's an heir to the royal throne to do? But what's a girl to do when her name is PRINCESS AMELIA MIGNONETTE GRIMALDI THERMOPOLIS RENALDO? (From Shelfari)
Review: 5 stars, Favorite

I just love this series. It just keeps getting better and better. Whenever I read one of the books, it makes me want to read the next one immediately. I guess the diary entry way of writing--the style that the author chose to do so--makes us more curious on what will happen next because we tend to delve into the personal thoughts of others--or the protagonist in the story. Whenever we see a diary kept hidden, we are curious on what is written inside it--the fact that Princess Mia's diary is an open book for us. Plus we tend to pick up some Princess Lessons in it. That's why I love it!

This Is My Time by Raven on Grooveshark
This is my time to show
What I must have always known
That nothings impossible
And dreams come true
