Secret confesion II *all gasp....again*

Now, if any you have read Sercet confession *all gasp* you may not be as excited by one of my post saying 'secret confessions'. And I will admit, it is a little bit of a stupid confession, but it is a secret none the less.
Now if you have read my 'Hopes Here' page (it's just above if you haven't) you know that I love a good book. I tend to read harrowing sad ones, some of my favourite books being the Bell Jar and the Interpretation of Murder, not books centred around happy topics right? But there is one series of books I go back to time and time again (even though I am 17) and they always seem to cherr me and, and that is.....(promise you wont laugh?) The Princess Diaries Series. Yeh, I know, to go from Sylvia Plath to this is a bit of a turn around, and someone who professes to have a love of classic literature it seems like an odd choice, but hear me out.
I can totally relate to Miss Mia Thermopolis. Ok, I am not a princess, my dad isnt a prince with a tendency to date super models and my mum didn't marry my Algerbra teacher (I don't even have Algerbra classes, Maths, not Algerbra). But alot of things I can relate to, I have unruely hair, I always hide how I truely feel, I am a geek and like Star Wars. But also some of the more serious things Mia goes through have happened in my life too. I had a breakdown when the 'supposed love of my life' dumped me too, even though I was the one who went all crazy on him (and ok he hasn't gone to Japan to build a robotic surgical arm, but he wants to be a doctor, and that saves lives). I also got depression, and had to go to therapy every single week (ok, my therapist wasn't a cowboy either, but still similar). All my 'depressing' usual reads were taken away from me and during my tough times I was left to read this series, and it helped me a lot, I felt like I could really relate to a fictional American Princess, and even now when I feel a little down, I pick up the books and start reading again. And I have alot to thank Mia and Meg Cabot for, and even though I have given up hope of the happy ending that Mia has (graduation, top college, a boyfriend who returns and secretly loved her all the time, and a best friend back) I still love the books, and every now and then still secretly beleive I am a princess too....H x
