{Blog Tour & Giveaway} So You Want to be a Princess!


Since Meg Cabot inspired me to start blogging you can imagine how excited (try madly) I am to be participating in a blog tour for one of her books (From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess)!! This calm face and relaxed tone are hiding some crazy, flailing excitement!!

Throughout the Middle School Princess tour we were asked to talk about what we would do "If I Were a Princess!". So, the questions remains...what would I do!!

If I Were a Princess 

Seriously though, I do believe my first reaction finding out I was royalty of a small country such as Genovia would be something like Mia's (and ironically nothing like that of Olivia's)....


Yet, once the shock wore off I and the possibilities of what this power/opportunity could bring and how one could help others. Even though I have a couple, varying, ideas on what I would do I think I'll start with the library,

As a reader, or should I say devour-er of books, and supporter of public libraries, I would work to bring more funding to public libraries because they offer not just books for the borrowing but classes, computers and so many opportunities for residents to broaden the scope of their knowledge and learn something new. Libraries and librarians are pretty awesome!


While getting books and resources such as the library provides into peoples hands is important there are a few other near and dear to me things, too. Such as the Make-a-Wish foundation, because who wouldn't want to help them make children's dreams come true, and raising awareness/looking for a cure for FA with the Fanconi Anemia Research Foundation.

On a lesser serious note, I'm thinking an end to high heels or just any shoe that is not comfortable! Really, I would kick the person that created high heels because they really, in the grand scheme of things, are not practical in the least bit. That would definitely be one of the first royal decrees...that and bringing back the art of hand-fan conversations.


Come on, check out that fun! Doesn't it make you want to get a little sassy with a hand fan?!

Now that you've seen "What I Would Do if I were a Princess" you should check out my thoughts on From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess by Meg Cabot to see why I really enjoyed meeting the newest Genovian princess!!!
