    ”I will live to make myself not feared” Catherine the Great 35 out of 5 starsSettingPrussia and Russia; 1743 1745Cover Thoughts?I think the painting overall is beautiful another lovely cover design by Tim O’Brien but the dog looks terrified Like “WTF is this chick making me come out here in the Russian snow” type terrified Plot ”’My poor German princess’ she said ‘You’re as plain as a toad Who will ever want to marry you?’” Little Sophie of Prussia has been told over and over again by her mother two things; that she’s ugly and that it is up to her to marry well so she can rescue them from a life of destitution So when a marriage proposal comes from Empress Elizabeth of Russia on behalf of her son Carl Peter Ulrich Sophie’s mother greedily accepts on her behalf None too pleased with the idea especially since her last encounter with Peter was an utter disaster she nevertheless makes the journey from her beloved Prussia to the harsh unfamiliar and vast Russian Empire where she is at the mercy of the empress Renamed Catherine and determined to know the ways of the Russian people Catherine throws herself into her studies For what she hasn’t told anyone not even her future husband is that she knows for a fact that she will rule Russia She just has to make sure she lives to do it Sniff This is the last Royal Diary novel That sound you hear is my childhood going out the window And while I do admit this was one of the weaker installments in the series I can’t say I hated it Heck I can’t say I hated any of the books in this series If you’re interested in getting your youngster interested in history or you’re a budding history buff yourself this series is the perfect place to start Anyhow back to the book This follows Sophie Catherine in her journey for the crown of Russia Catherine has always been one of my favorites and not just because of the name so it was super fun to read about her childhood and her determination to meet her goal of ruling all or Russia Characters ”Dear diary when I looked in the mirror tonight I did not see an ugly duckling For the first time ever my reflection showed a princess who is almost pretty” Catherine aka Sophie is her mother’s only hope for rising above her station and marrying off so she can get her family our from poverty although to me they didn’t seem particularly poor Catherine was a resourceful character who never let her mother’s insults get the better of her She doesn’t even let the thought of a dull loveless marriage prospect faze her Nope not at all Instead she throws herself into learning the language ways and customs of her new homeland Russia going to far as to make herself sick trying to learn Russian Literally She has her eyes on the prize and it doesn’t include her newly betrothed Peter She wants the crown and she wants it bad But instead of making her thoughts known or going after it with brute force she waits her turn patiently but steadily ”Truly at first sight I thought he was a girl His face was soft and pale his hair curled to his shoulders” Carl Peter is Catherine’s cousinbetrothed but it’s hardly love at first sight Peter isn’t exactly a Studmuffin like a Dullmuffin to be specific He’s a man child who has gone through puberty supposedly but his brain and hormones never got the memo He and Catherine have a platonic relationship for the entirety of the novel so a true romance never develops Then again back then who knows how many true romances develop Peter is interested in playing with his toy soldiers and cussing out Catherine’s mother then thinking about ruling the kingdom or learning about it In short; I’M UNIMPRESSED ”Though she is mean and rarely shows affection she is still my mother She’s the only one in this new country who is not a stranger to me I don’t know how I would be able to bear her disappointment” Catherine’s mother is a piece of work that’s for sure Although I think deep DEEP down and we’re talking pretty deep here she loved Catherine but it’s either really hard for her to show it or she has no soul Either way she treats Catherine like crap most of the time never failing to take an opportunity to tell her how unattractive she is and she’d better not screw up in making her impressions of else her ass would get whopped Yup real mother daughter bonding right there She won’t be winning any Mother of the Year awards Heck she can’t even get most people to like her anyhow Even Peter doesn’t like her ProsIt’s a Royal Diaries book There’s an automatic soft spot for these types of books in my reading life I grew up with this series as well as its companion sister series so no matter what I’ll always enjoy them And this book was no exception Well maybe I’m just being generous because we both have the same name Not that I’d admit it or anything ConsAfter a while the entries to the diary kind of got annoying Not the writing style itself but the headings Yeah yeah I know; it seems like such a silly thing But for some reason it bugged me For instance one would say “April 18th” then the next one would say “Midnight” then “Sometime Later” WAY too much detail for one day girl Just make another entry titled another day Love Triangle?NopeInstalove?NopeA Little Romance? ”Even though my fiancé is an unappealing man child who still plays with dolls his is my future Without him I return to Germany disgraced and a pauper Without him I have no chance of wearing the Russian crown” If you can’t tell from the above uote Catherine doesn’t think her husband the Romeo to her Juliet if you know what I mean He’s ugly to her immature stubborn and nowhere near ready to become the next leader of Russia But the thought of the crown on her head is appealing to her then finding the next great love of her life so she takes a pass If it’s any consolation to readers though they do happen to make uite good friends over time Conclusion This is the last installment of The Royal Diaries series so it was kind of bittersweet reading this It was such a big part of my childhood reading these books I think I read just about every single one of them I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for these books no matter how old and decrepit I get You learn so much history and this is the closest you’ll ever get to personally knowing these wonderful women who shaped history While I thought this was one of the weaker books in the series and certainly weak for what is supposed to be the final book of a long running series I still enjoyed it nonetheless

    When I was a kid around ten or twelve years old this was one of my absolute favourite book series I adore books about princesses real or fictional and love learning about them There's twenty books in this series I own eight of them I recently decided to re read some of them partly for nostalgic reasons and partly because I'm kind of behind in my 100 books goal and would like to shamelessly bring that number up a bit hehThis book is about a little German princess who lived in Prussia who was born as Sophia Her mother is a relentless social climber a princess herself but such a minor one that no one really cares about them She always dreams of being related to real royalty When Empress Elisabeth of Russia sends out a reuest for portraits of young eligible ladies to be sent to her so she may choose a bride for her heir the Grand Duke Peter Sophia and her mother are both shocked and excited that Elisabeth chooses Sophia Thus Sophia makes the great journey from Prussia to Russia through the snow and cold to meet her future husband When she meets the Empress the Empress decides Sophia should be named Catherine instead after her mother Catherine would later go on to become Catherine the GreatI thought the book was pretty good It wasn't the most exciting or engaging one I remember the Anastasia and Cleopatra books in this series being very addicting I think the issue is that Catherine's life is much interested after she marries and becomes Empress than before I know the series focuses on the princesses in their tweenteen years but Catherine just doesn't have that much going during that part of her life besides the betrothal Still I do think the book was written pretty good and despite not too much happening in her life The book focuses on Catherine's relationships with her mother Empress Elisabeth and her betrothed Peter which  I think is great for laying down the groundwork for those interested in reading about Catherine because Catherine does have some tense relationships with those peopleThis portrayal of Catherine is very easy to like I'm not sure how she is usually portrayed; this is my first historical fiction involving Catherine the Great From what I know of her from history though I imagine she would often be portrayed as very ambitious? This Catherine in this book does have hints of ambitiousness but the author whether purposely or not downplayed a lot of it or made it sound like a nice girl chasing a dream to be a good empressMy only real complaint is the ending It was very very abrupt I was surprised to turn the page and realize that the story was doneIf you don't mind reading juvenile books I think this one is a pretty good one to try out especially if you like historical fiction andor have an interest in the Russian empress Catherine the Great

  3. Emma Emma says:

    I've finished my nonsensical goal of reading all these books Yay me Catherine is the last book of the series ending it on a better note than many of the last installments Bonus points for reading this right after the premiere of the HBO mini series about Catherine The book is interesting but ends abruptly like most of the royal diaries I would have liked to read about what happened to Johanna Catherine's mother after she was sent back to Prussia but otherwise I think the book is a good overview of Catherine's youth

  4. Eliza Brittni Eliza Brittni says:

    Dear Kristiana GregoryThis book was really well put together To think that this is what really went on in young “Catherine’s” life Her real name was Sophie and it was changed by Empress Elizabeth of Russia This was an amazing diary because it talked about historical events as well as her feeling towards different important people in history I couldn’t believe the way her mother treated her always putting her down telling her she would never be someone in life and how she would never marry Sophie was a princess as was her mother But her mother’s title failed when the only person she could marry was a soldier at 15 One that was old enough to be a grandfather So her mother was one who wanted fame and fortune and thought the way to get it was threw Sophie So she was thrilled when Sophie was chosen to be the Grand Dukes fiancé This meant they were both able to go to Russia and live like real royalty

  5. Drucilla Drucilla says:

    The author does a great job of showing a girl who's caught between a rock and a hard place and is scared I wish the historical information had been a bit thorough in regards to her private life such as her family and whether or not she ever saw them again The author also mentions a few really interesting things like the coup and I wished she would have gone into detail about them although I realize it might not have been appropriate for the age group she was writing to The only problem I had was with the way the author separated the diary entries She broke up long sections by having the character write Oh the candle is going out and then would start a new entry It got annoying reading it so many times

  6. Yu-Jie Yu-Jie says:

    I am reasonably sure that I can attribute the start of my long love affair with historical fiction solely to reading The Royal Diaries series as a child I still harbour a great fondness for the books despite being a great deal older than the target audience now Catherine The Great Journey was by no means my favourite of the series but nevertheless a uick enjoyable read My only real gripe is that the ending was far too abrupt almost nonsensically so

  7. Kelsey Hanson Kelsey Hanson says:

    Generally after reading the Royal Diaries my first thought is jeez they had it rough This one is no exception These royal daughters were forced to grow up so uickly and had so much responsibility thrust upon them She also had to make an alarming number of sacrifices in order to secure her throne It is impressive that Catherine was able to overcome so much to be a strong leader

  8. Heidi Heidi says:

    The slightly annoying thread that I notice running through these Royal Diaries books is that they stop just when the story is getting really interesting It's a pity I loved Catherine's voice in this though

  9. Emily Emily says:

    I found this book very interesting and easy to read I enjoyed learning about what was going on in Russia and Prussia during a time when the USA was working towards and earning its freedom It’s so hard to imagine that for hundreds of years before the colonies were even established Europe had grand rulers with disgusting amounts of valuables and palaces Catherine was an interesting individual Very determined and set on being as great as she could be as a person and for her country realizing that her path in life was to rule Russia and she needed to do that the best she can It’s amazing how many great things she did for the country It’s awesome to learn about such important but also good people in history who cared about the wellbeing of their people Cared about their health education and uality of life Catherine was born in Prussia to a German princess and a war general At 14 she was sent to Russia to become engaged to the Empress’s nephew Peter She was worried about how well they’d get along but in the end they did become good friends Unfortunately Peter was sickly and after surviving some awful illnesses their relationship became strained Catherine also had to go on in life to rule without her family by her side for the rest of her life which is very sad

  10. Emily Ledger Emily Ledger says:

    Interesting to compare to the Hulu series The Great Same sense of living in terror that the fickle Russian ruler might be displeased and send someone to Siberia cut out their tongue etc Also Catherine is greatly interested in learning everything about Russia and its subjects But there’s no sense that she is a strong capable woman In this book she’s too concerned with what her mother thinks or what the empress thinks she has no agency Also she had to wait 17 years to succeed to the throne with Peter whom she met as a young girl and was engaged to at 15 The Great is definitely an excellent fiction but at least they got Catherine’s personality right
