I finished Princess Academy by Shannon Hale last night.
The story of Miri, one of the girls who must go to Princess Academy because the priests of the land have foretold that the future princess will be from her town. Thus all the girls are required by law to learn how to be a princess in case the prince chooses her at theendofthe year.
It is delightful read despite the fact that it tries too hard to not be predictable (and yet it is still thoroughly predictable). (I'd love to know if others found it as predictable as I did, so if in August when it's published you read it and remember, get back to me.) I liked the characters and the world they inhabited. And wouldn't mind reading more about them. But then again I'm a sucker for serialization (which is why I purchased Shrimp, sequal to Gingerbread, today).
I've started Empress of the World and am highly likely to finish it tonight, despite the fact that I'm a little tired and have a trillion things to do.
ETA: Did I use enough parantheses or what? And did that make any sense?
