It’s Princess Day!

November 18 is national princess day! This day has graced our history ever since The Swan Princess came out in 1994. Since then, this day is used to celebrate the princess in all of us.

This year, to celebrate, I am giving a list of books that feature some awesome princesses.

  • Seriously, Cinderella Is SO Annoying!: The Story of Cinderella as Told by the Wicked Stepmother by Trisha Speed Shaskan & Gerald Claude Guerlais

I love fairy tales retold, especially from a different character’s perspective. Check out this children’s book to get the Stepmother’s perspective.

  • Princess Academy by Shannon Hale.

The kingdom builds an academy every teenage girl must attend. One day, the prince will choose his bride from the academy. Miri was used to a simple life and now finds herself in this harsh academy. Will she survive?

  • The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

As someone who read these when I was eleven, I recommend this series for any middle school reader. It goes more in depth than the movies on Mia’s life from nerd to Princess.

  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The Lunar Chronicles is an AMAZING series and a must-read for fairy-tale lovers. Visit the familiar tales of Cinderella, Snow White, Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel in a whole new futuristic way.

  • The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

This seems to be the kind of book for people who like royals and vampires. It’s another book in an academy and this book tells the tale of the teenage bodyguard of the vampire princess, Lissa.

  • Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole.

Naledi Smith dismissed the claims that she was betrothed to an African prince, until he shows up on her doorstep. Will Naledi claim her royalty or just want her normal life?

  • The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

Elisa becomes a secret wife of a king who’s country is in turmoil. While trying to save the country, there are many enemies out for her–one of which may be her own self-doubt.

  • To Kill a Kingdom by Alexander Christo

Princess Lira is siren royalty and kills the most humans. Then, the siren turns human via a sea witch curse. Sounds a bit familiar, hmmm?

  • American Royals by Katharine McGee

This book is a what if scenario. What if America was a monarchy? Follow Beatrice’s and Samantha’s royal life in this America.

  • The Princess Knight by Cornelia Funke & Kerstin Meyer

This children’s book shows that girls can fulfill both their royal duties and fight! Could be very encouraging to girls who question what they’re able to do.

Why not have a taste of royal life by opening one of these reads?
