    1. Disclaimer: The last time I read this book was in middle school, so my review will be spotty and more nostalgic than any review should be. Oh well.I avidly read the Royal Diaries series during my middle school years. Like most young girls, I was fascinated with princesses and--maybe not so much like most young girls--deeply interested in the power politics of royalty. Princesses, more often than not, tend to be the pawns of such political games, so it was always very thrilling to read a story in [...]

    2. Cleopatra, Daughter of Nile / 0-590-81975-5Good grief, I generally enjoy the Royal Diaries, but this one is just awful. I've read it twice now, thinking that perhaps the first time I was just being unfair, but I couldn't finish slogging through it the second time. I usually like Kristiana Gregory's work, but this one felt like either a very early work, or a very rushed effort, or both. The history is terrible; the author has a cast of Roman and Greek "Who's Who" show up to introduce themselves t [...]

    3. This was a very nostalgic read, because I first read this whole series in elementary school, and plan to read all of the books again because I remember them as a cornerstone of my childhood.Now, I may be biased because I obsess over anything and everything Cleopatra, but I think that this was a fresh, and wonderful take on Cleopatra before she was the last of the pharaohs. We see more of a family dynamic in this novel than ever, her sisters Arisone and Tryphaena are characters, and I have never [...]

    5. This review is also posted on my blog.(view spoiler)[Well this was a nice little read!I’d picked it up because I’m already such a big fan of the Dear America books, and when I realized exactly what this series was - diaries of young versions of female royalty throughout the world and throughout history - it highly intrigued me and I decided to give it a shot.And I can’t say I’m disappointed!This particular book wasn’t what I could call *spectacular*, but it was highly fascinating, very [...]

    6. I am reading a book called Cleopatra VII a group from (The Royal Diaries). This book is by Kristina Gregory one of my most favorite authors. Thins book is mostly about the life of a princess called Cleopatra VII.She is nicknamed the daughter of the Nile. That's because she was born in Egypt very near to the Nile river. Cleopatra faces many danger, and some of her family betrays her, and her farther. Cleopatra is accompanied by her two faithful servants through out all the journey even through ha [...]

    7. I really quite liked this one. A lot of the details are still confusing to me (I don't know much ancient history at all, and this is pre NT times) but this did help sort some of it out. What it didn't do was show a sufficient link between the young Cleopatra and her later self - the historical information at the back of the book says that Cleopatra killed her sister Arsinoe in order to secure her throne, and yet the young Cleopatra barely even wonders about such things. I mean, I know it's histo [...]

    8. Cleopatra VII Is about a girl who has attractive charm . Most of the scientists want to know how she can make two kings fall in love with her, and how she fought to be the queen in her country . I liked this story, because you want to know what happens next . It will take you on her adventure.

    9. Trying to remember the very first books I was introduced to, I remember reading The Royal Diaries sometime in my childhood. I remember reading a few of them such as Elizabeth I, Marie Antoinette, and Cleopatra VII. But unlike certain books that I read (such as Animorphs, Harry Potter, and Warriors.) where I remembered the characters, the story, and other things that I liked about them. The Royal Diarires on the other hand, I barely remember a thing about the books. But I really confused on to wh [...]

    10. I read this book when I was in elementary school and subsequently fell in love with Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt. I was already fascinated with ancient history and Greek and Egyptian mythology- this just deepened my desire to learn more about the period. This story follows the tale of Cleopatra in her early years, from 12 to 14. She is a young girl growing up in a dangerous time and place. Her father's rule is starting to crumble, and the Ptolemaic rule is coming to its eventual decline. It's int [...]

    12. The Royal Diaries is a series by Canada, in which each book is a fictional diary of a royal queen or princess, covering only her early years because the series is geared towards children. I think it is an interesting concept. Children (and adult) readers would learn much about history through them, while being entertained along the way.Unfortunately, though perhaps the concept in theory sounds good, the reality is a different story, at least in this one title that I've read. As a story, the plo [...]

    13. If I hadn't read an amazing Cleopatra biography by Stacy Schiff a couple of weeks ago, my rating would most likely be higher. It was, however, interesting reading an interpretation of a glimpse into Cleopatra's early life; but, I think that I had what Cleopatra was like in her later years ingrained in my mind, which is not a terrible thing, because I think that Gregory did an adequate job displaying some of Cleopatra's later character traits. However, I think that because a lot of this novel was [...]

    14. The book was interesting, but did not lead me on. Cleopatra's prayer has been heard by god, they are going back to Rome! Now Cleopatra can see Olympus again. She has met the person Marc Antony, they are both in love with each other, but just can't admit it. Although the book had a good ending for Cleopatra and her father, the king, nothing ended well for poor Berenice. When she and her father was back in town, Berenice was beheaded and brought to the kind and Cleopatra to prove it. There was the [...]

    15. Oh man, I was OBSESSED with this book when I was younger. I used to pretend I was Cleopatra all the time. Loved it.

    16. I was absolutely obsessed with this book as a pre-teen so much so that I read it 4 times. So many good memories from this book! I definitely recommend this to parents for children 11+ years old.

    20. I first read this in middle school and it must've all went over my head because reading it now as an adult I really enjoyed it. It was interesting and held my attention I finished it in just a couple hours. I remember hating it as a kid. Maybe it's better appreciated by an older audience.

    21. WARNING: spoilers!This book is truly BAD, sorry.First, the story has too many holes. Sure it is based on historical fact, namely the exile of king Ptolemy, his daughter Berenice taking over the title, and his return with Roman troops and subsequent execution of the usurper. But as for the rest, and as another reviewer has written, it is just impossible that a young Cleopatra would have happened to meet all the significant people of the time.Second, the author takes a huge liberty with either fac [...]

    22. This was a marvelous novel of pure excellence. The diary concept was very interesting and made you interact with the main character more, but it was even more fascinating because Cleopatra herself was a queen of Egypt and a real person that I've always admired. The thing that made it a fun nonfictional read was that Cleopatra was about 12 in this book and it was also made very relatable because of this.One thing that I did not like, however, was that the author didn't make me know the other char [...]

    23. The book the Royal Diaries, Cleopatra VII, Daughter of the Nile was a superior book. The book was about Cleopatra VII.The Royal Diaries is a series of twenty books published by Press from 1999 to 2005. All of her dairies, memories, and important dates are put into this book.

    24. I found the premise of this book to be interesting; presenting one of histories most famous women as an impressional 12-14 year old. It showed some of the events that would influence her in the future, and help to shape how she would rein over her country.The book opens with her father (pharaoh Ptolemy Auletes XII) going into hiding after an attempt on his life, when a poisonous puff adder is found ready to strike at the foot of his bed. Through entries in a fictional diary, Cleopatra describes [...]

    25. This book starts out with talking about who Cleopatra is and that her father, King Ptolemy Auletes, has gone into hiding because he is in danger of being removed of his throne. It then gradually introduces the family like Cleopatra's sisters and younger siblings. Then, Cleopatra is ran out of Alexandria in fear of being killed by her evil older sister, Tryphaena. She flees with her father to Rome where she meets Cicero, Julius Caesar, Marc Antony, and others. When they flee, Tryphaena becomes qu [...]

    26. I probably would've loved this if I'd read it when I was younger! Okay, mainly because Cleopatra has a pet leopard. (Who wouldn't want a pet leopard?) But also because the narration is cute and Cleopatra is pretty sassy when she's not making majestic proclamations about how she would be a much better ruler than her father/sisters/just about anyone.I've gathered together the recent letters I have written to Olympus and Theophilus. (Nothing for Berenice -- what would I say? Have you strangled anot [...]

    27. Cleopatra's childhood is illustrated in such an interesting and real way in this novel. Ancient Egypt is so fascinating and mysterious, and this book tries to describe what it would be like to hear from Cleopatra herself. I'm sure no other young adult novel attempts to speak from Cleopatra's perspective! In her personal journal, Cleopatra explains her life and her struggles being an Egyptian princess. Her father, the king, is a useless drunk that makes himself a fool in front of others, but coul [...]

    28. This book was very interesting and cool because it showed what life was like in Rome. It was really cool to read this book especially because we were learning all about the Roman empire and Cleopatras role in it during history class at school! I could totally make connections with what we were learning in history and what I was reading in this book. This book was very detailed and sounded exactly as the real Cleopatra would've sounded if she was still alive. The author did a very good job making [...]

    29. The next on my list of books to re-read from my childhood! (I will be going through the entire series. Currently I am reading what I have in alphabetical order, but (and this was after I decided on that) I thought it would be interesting to read them in chronological orderxt time!)Anyway, Cleopatra. At the end of this one, in the notes about her and her history, it seemed like the author made this diary with the help not from Cleo's own diary but writings about her from other sources. And I am a [...]
