Opps! I thought this one came after Princess on the Brink... Oh well. Time for book 9!

This novella really captures what I liked about the early years of this series the best, the zany humor and immaturity that you see only in Mia’s freshman year. Sure, you begin to see that annoying neurosis that followed the series on from book four to Mia’s intervention in book nine, but it’s muted in this novella.

I love how Valentine’s Day is treated in this book and how the romance is handled in a fairly realistic way. That was the

Is it weird that I get super excited when Lars gets a scene?

I was completely unaware of there being books in-between the Princess Diaries series, until one of my Goodreads friends, Penelope, started reading them.
I seriously can't wait for my Royal Wedding copy to arrive, this series is closely connected to my teenage years.

First of all, because I can't seem to stop myself from commenting on this book after book, what the heck is wrong with Lilly? Why is she such a jerk to everyone and why do these people still want to be around her? UGH!
That being said, other than the Lilly parts of this novella I really enjoyed it. The Grandmere stuff was too funny and the way Michael and Mia solved the Valentine's Day issue is very sweet and romantic. Nice little addition to the series.

I'll admit this was pretty fun to read. The reason is quite obvious; it's short (less than a 100 pages). The previous books wouldn't have been that irritating if they were short too. It didn't feel repetitive or like it was being dragged.
Everyone had their own ideas about Valentine's day, Lily's amused me the most and I agree with her. Grandmere's predicament was hilarious. I wish The-Guy-Who-Hates-Corn-In-His-chili would get a proper introduction in the future.

I laughed... and laughed... and laughed at this book. It was seriously entertaining reading a book that is basically a flashback, when you know how different things are in the series when the book actually was published. The book is listed as 4 and 1/2 in the book list, which is where it falls chronologically, but I think it's MUCH more entertaining reading it at 7 and 3/4 (which is when it was published) because of all the stuff that is so much funnier because you know what is going to happen. ...more

Absolutely hilarious, and a sheer joy to read!

ETA 10 years later: Valentine Princess is a very quick read, and even feels a tad rushed. In particular, there was a very promising storyline with Grandmere and an astrologist that could have been fodder for a lot more hilarity. I bear an enormous disdain for Valentine’s Day, so I really appreciated that plenty of characters shared my views. It was an excellent touch to show Mia choosing to support her friends on Valentine’s Day instead of romance.

This book was different than any other Princess Diaries book due to the fact that it was a diary entry that 14 year old Mia wrote and 16 year old Mia was reading. The first and last chapter was about (16 year old) Mia's thoughts about her first Valentine's Day with Michael. The in-between chapters was the story of that day. It was just like reading the old (and more annoying) Mia. I liked how well Meg Cabot can write as a fourteen year old and as a sixteen year old in the same book. The main sto ...more

Short Review for a Short Book

Okay so i have read the whole series so i know the whole Boris and Lily thing doesn't really work out, but damn girl, she is not nice in this book at all. I mean if a boy was trying to buy me a good Vday gift, i wouldn't act as bitchy as Lily did.

This book does help me remember why i hate Vday, Mia is stressing out so badly about finding a gift for him and thinking about what he could be getting her and wondering if he even likes Vday!? Too much pressure.

A thoroughly refreshing and easy read. Devoured it in one sitting! Meg Cabot's works are one of the best!!!!!!!
Mia is a lot more logical in this book than she is in other sequels.................. or I felt so..............
LOVE IT!!!!!!!
Found it when I was desperately in need of some Meg Cabot.

This book is a sweet romantic book for Valentine's Day with Mia & Michael. Lily is some what out of hand with Boris on his gift, he did do his best. I did like this book and recommend such a wonderful short book. I am a big Princess Diaries fan and this just became even more fun to read.

2.5. The same as with 'Sweet 16 Princess'. It was a fun story but also felt like a chapter ripped off another book in the series.

The library binding says that this is 4.25 so I decided to read it before book 7 just because. I liked this one, it was short, to the point and funny.

I thought it was really good! But I didn't realize that it was apart of a series... so I recommend you read the rest before then. I knew who the people were because I watched the movies. (They are amazing) The books are just as good. So read them!!!

I love it!

I find Mia's thinking, reactions... Funny. What's more hilarious is her grandmere and Dr. Steve. That was definitely a good one! Though, I think it would be funnier had Mia's grandmere accepted Dr. Steve's "love". Also, I like how Michael and Lily describes Valentine's Day. It's unique, and true.

Michael is definitely the best! Well, other than Mia herself. I like how he's always not turning out as what Mia had expected of him. Instead, he knows when to give her space and when to be sw

This was probably the perfect Cabot book to soothe the pain from Abandon. It was cute, funny, and MOST IMPORTANTLY: short. Once I got into the rhythym of the book, I had less than a hundred pages left. Mia was more likeable than usual, because she was still just as silly and overly-earnest as always, but much less idiotic. My favorite quote was:

"Opt out? Opt out of Cupids holding Be Mine banners and "I Choo-choo-choose You" train engine Valentines and heart-shaped boxes of chocolate with gooey u

This review will be very short considering it's a quarter volume of a book.

This book was one of the better mini stories, I think largely because I can connect very personally to a lot of her struggles with having to try and share a special Valentine's Day with someone who thinks it's a "Hallmark Holiday". That's why I decided to give it five stars, for it's personal value for me and the lessons it taught me. I truly thought that this book's plot was actually kind of original, and cute. I loved t

Synopsis: "Valentine's Day means flowers, chocolates, and all-out romance.

That is, it usually means those things. But when you're Princess Mia, nothing happens the way it's supposed to. For one thing, Grandmère seems determined to prove that boy (or Michael, as he is commonly known) isn't the right one for the crown princess of Genovia. And Mia isn't having much luck proving otherwise, since Michael has a history of being decidedly against any kind of exploitative commercialization (Valentine's

Valentine Princess is hilarious. Mia is freaking out because it's her first Valentine's Day as a couple with Michael, and she wants to do something special, but Michael isn't a fan of the "holiday," since he sees it as a way for companies to exploit money out of people. When reading the series, I opted to skip the companion books and read them later. I'm so glad I did that. It's been a couple of years since I finished the series, and having Mia back in my life is wondrous.

This was a short book,
