New Adult ‘Princess Diaries’ Book Coming Soon

If you’re a woman in your mid-to-late 20’s, and you like to read, you’ve probably read the entire Princess Diaries series when you were in your teens. The YA series was hugely popular about 10 years ago — so popular it lead to a few movies (which, by the way, put a then-unknown Anne Hathaway on the map). If you miss those books — and don’t worry, I do too — you’re in luck.

According to Entertainment WeeklyPrincess Diaries author Meg Cabot is working on a new installment in the  series, but this one will be specifically geared toward adults. Much like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, which had a final novel aimed at adults, Sisterhood EverlastingPrincess‘s new novel will tell the story of an older Princess Mia Thermopolis, as Erin Strecker explains.

In Royal Wedding, Princess Diaries XI, Princess Mia’s planned nuptials to longtime love Michael Moscovitz are in jeopardy when the paparazzi uncover a startling secret: Mia has a long lost younger sister. Now a scheming politico is using the royal scandal to force Mia’s father from the throne, leaving Genovia without a monarch . . . unless Mia can prove to everyone — especially herself — that she’s finally fit to rule,” Cabot explained on her site.

That little half-sister will also have her own spin-off series, entitled From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess. That series and the new adult Diaries book are both expected to be released in the summer of 2015.
