Award-winning author Carolyn Meyer introduces readers to the unforgettable Anastasia Romanov, whose idyllic life is forever changed with the coming of World War I.

In this fictionalized journal, Anastasia lives again. Through her eyes, we witness the day-to-day splendor the czar's family experienced before the onslaught of the Russian Revolution. However, one also senses that crowding the outskirts of Anastasia's ornate diary are hundreds of thousands of teeming serfs, just beginning to percolate.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 2/12/2014

    " This book is set up like a journal. so it is like her writing in her journal telling you what is going on in her life. It is an easy read but a fun read and has really good history in it as well "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gowriting | 1/31/2014

    " this is a very good book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 1/25/2014

    " This is a fictional diary by Anastasia. It tells you about their day to day lives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danica Page (One Page at a Time) | 1/24/2014

    " This was also one of my childhood favorites. I loved these series as a child. I must confess I kind of want to re-read this book and read more from these series, even if they are meant for people much younger. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/24/2014

    " Learned a few historical things from this, and it was interesting, but at first Anastasia was quite the independent snoop. She got a little more caring and grown-up as time went on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyla | 1/21/2014

    " Also one of my favorites! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 1/16/2014

    " I love reading about the Romanov family...Their end was so tragic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erika | 12/9/2013

    " I loved the Royal Diaries back when I was in middle school. They are all wonderful reads and I suggest them all to everyone. Happy Reading!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joleen | 11/18/2013

    " I love historical fiction and reading something light when I am SO overworked is nice. I had NO idea of the WEALTH they had! WOW!!! A fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalia | 10/17/2013

    " This book was great, though a little dull at times. I liked how I was able to interlock the fiction with history, and find out more about Rasputin and his influence on the Empress. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 10/8/2013

    " One of the better Royal Diaries, I think. It charts the downfall of the Russian imperial family in pretty painful detail, and the ending--this is one of the few Royal Diaries to have a definite ending--really does hurt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Butterfly | 10/2/2013

    " One of my favorites books that also holds my interest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yessenia | 8/13/2013

    " anastasia was okay i mean not the best but good enough to read in some part it was boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyce | 6/20/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 9/21/2012

    " I loved this book in middle school. I picked it up because I loved the movie and all the 15 page picture books about Anastasia. But none of them mentioned that she actually did die! Or even how her family died. Ugh. It killed the dream for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Parisa | 8/5/2012

    " I was fascinated by Anastasia and her family afterwards. I researched them, and snatched up any book I could find on them. I WAS LITERALLY OBSSESSED. This was a gorgeous book. You have not lived until you read it. I have read it 17 times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalia | 3/30/2012

    " This book was good, but I had pretty high expectations so I was a little disappointed but only because of the movie and Disney's warping of it (nothing against Disney or the movie but..) Still kind of cool though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rojo | 3/5/2012

    " I really liked this book and it was sad looking at all of the pictures and reading what happened to them in Siberia. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashleigh Cartmill | 9/3/2011

    " I read this after I saw the movie that was made about her life (the animated one). I found the story about her life to be sad and interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 6/27/2011

    " Strangely enough, I had never made the connection that it was by Vladmir Lenin's Bolshevik revolution that Anastasia and her family were dethroned. Interesting. "
