Restoring my faith in romance | misskookie's Blog
I just finished rereading the Princess Diaries series. I LOVED these books when I was in high school; I mean, who wouldn’t? Mia wasn’t necessarily pretty, she definitely wasn’t popular and she had zero breasts. And she still ended up with a fairytale life. Quite literally, since she was a royal. What teenage girl wouldn’t love it?
I guess some people might think I’m too old to still be reading these books. But deep beneath Mia’s droning on and on about self-actualization is a wonderful romance story. I seriously was up from 2 in the morning till midday reading books 8 through 10, about Mia’s breakup, and makeup, with Michael. I don’t care if she was still in high school and called sex ‘Doing It’. Their story is beautiful and heartwarming and I, for one, am a total sucker for Michael Moscovitz. And his neck.
True, romance stories typically have the same plot with different variations. But there is no denying that a good romance story has the power to lift you out of your blues and restore your hope where it was lost. (ask anyone who’s ever watched the Notebook. Cliché, yes Do I care? No.) and sometimes you really do need a pick-me-up. I really need a pick-me-up. I’m starting to seriously wonder when I’ll date again.
Anyway, this post is not about woes. I have a feeling that one will be coming up soon enough. Now that I’m done with the Princess Diaries, I plan to move on to my Harlequin novels that I downloaded free from their website. Yay for me. :)
