Review: Princess Academy
Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So my attempt at blogging by chapter (or even batched chapters) kind of fell through. But just as the first time I read it, I really enjoyed reading Princess Academy for the second time. For now, I haven't quite decided on how I want to review this piece, so for now, I'll leave it with my chosen rating as well as a high recommendation to anyone who likes young adult, fairy tale-esque stories with a spunky little female lead. For those of us who are already Shannon Hale fans, well, I don't need to say much -- she is just so good at creating an entire culture of people in her books without simply turning them into background that speeds by. I love that in Princess Academy, you know only follow Miri's plight, but you also get to know everyone else around her as well.
I will try to collect my thoughts and maybe write a proper review, but I know I'll probably just leave it at this.
And now I'm looking forward (and ready) for the next book in this line: Palace of Stone!
