Middle School Princess Blog Tour PLUS Giveaway




Inspired by Meg Cabot's newest book, From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess, Mac Kids asked bloggers what they would do if they woke up and discovered they were a princess or prince.

If I woke up and discovered I was a princess, I would be both nervous and excited. I would immediately want to check out my new royal castle's library (because a castle has to have a library!) and I hope that it would look just like Belle's castle, because isn't that what every bookish princess wants? 

I would also use my new princess powers for good and bring books and libraries to kids all over my kingdom. I would make sure my kingdom had libraries with great teen and children's librarians. I would even build a library just for kids and teens and staff it with the best librarians possible (all my friends of course who are the most amazing librarians ever!) And then one of my first acts as princess would be to bring a litfest to my kingdom bringing in authors and illustrators from all over the world. If I could, I would also use my powers to fund libraries outside of my kingdom and bring books to children everywhere I went. 

Aside from all the bookish things I would do, I would make sure that Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan got to own a sports team, since that's his dream. If I get my dream library and get to bring books to everyone I meet, then Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan should get something too, right? 

What would you do if you woke up and discovered you were a princess? That's what happens to Olivia in Meg Cabot's new book, From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess. Want to win a copy of the book? Leave a comment below!

  1. Yes, yes every princess should have their own royal library with bookcase after bookcase of books. Such fun.

  2. I would have a HUGE princess tea party, where everyone has to be nice to each other. And I would adopt lots of homeless pets, and build a castle for them. :-)

  3. I can't wait to read this! I guess if I were a princess, I'd have to start caring more about appearances...

  6. Oooh, fun question ... I would probably do really selfish things like ask the royal chef to make all my favorite foods and spend the day stuffing myself silly or strolling around the castle grounds or curling up in the library with a few good books. Good thing I'm not actually a princess :)

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  7. Just go on doing what I've been doing. I'm not sure I'd change my life for a region who just found me after all of these years.
