The Mediator: Shadowland – Meg Cabot

June 22, 2009

I have a feeling that this summer will consist mostly of reading.

I read another book for the gist of today so far, it’s the first one in the Mediator series by Meg Cabot. One of the girls who works at the children’s desk in the library reccomended it to me and as soon as I finished Palace of Mirrors I started on this one. And I finished it about a half hour ago. And it ROCKED.

So you can tell I really need to:
a) Get started on those reviews I promised!
b) Read the next Mediator book
c) Find my list of books I’ve read so I can update it. And once I do that, I should copy it out in like, 19 places so I won’t have to worry about loosing it again. I think maybe I should put it on this blog somewhere…

Anyway, I do recommend this book. It’s about a 16-year-old girl who can talk to ghosts and found out she’s moving to a place with some really old buildings (old buildings = more ghosts). And at her school she’s seemingly replaced a popular girl who’s commited suicide over the holiday. And one thing’s for sure, Heather will not make room for anyone.
Compared to Twilight, this book has less romance and more action, and clearly more books in its series. (Notice: I’m not saying it’s better or worse!)

It’s times like these that I figure I should start a book club.

    Hey, I just came across your blog while looking up Audrey Hepburn stuff (liked your Halloween costume idea) and saw a book I’ve read in the past!
    I loved the Mediators! I never actually finished them all, but I had to inform you (because I know you care mucho much) that I liked that book. Personally I think it was one of Meg Cabbot’s best ones.
    Oh, and a book reccomendation for you: the Georgia Nicholson series. It is a hilarious book collection. Not really the sort I would normally read. Actually the whole entire first book was wasted on me since I couldn’t get past how idiotic Georgia was, but after that I was hooked. It’s nice stuff to read when you want to get away from the seriousness of life. Can’t remember who it’s by though… some lady… duh.

    Do you like fantasy? If you do, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (it’s a series) is AMAZING! It’s actually in the adult section of the library since the average 14 year old girl doesn’t enjoy stuff that indepth, but I love it. Lots of drama, lovable characters, evil, good, magic, doom, hope, blahblahblah. You do have to be a really patient reader, though. They are each 700-900 pages long, and there is going to be like 14 books in the series. I think 12 are out right now.
    Hmmm the only other series that jumps out at me right now is the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Great stuff, cried like eight times. Harhar, oh well.

    Hope that you like some of the books I suggested, they are each WAY different from eachother, and that your blog goes well.

    Ciao

      Woah, thanks so much for the suggestions.
      I didn’t finish the Mediator series either- I didn’t want it to end so I sort of slowed down my reading while I was most of the way through the sixth book. And then I had to return it to the library before I got around to finishing it… But I do agree that it’s some of Meg Cabot’s best work. πŸ™‚
      Never heard of Georgia Nicholson but I’ll google it or look it up at my library, same with the Wheel of Time (sounds interesting, and yes, I do like my share of fantasy πŸ˜› )
      I borrowed one of the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants books from my stepmum a while back (2 years ago, I think?) and haven’t gotten around to reading much of it yet. I’m actually only finally getting around to reading the Harry Potter books, after accumulating all the series of it for so long. (I told my mum about this the other day and she was surprised since she already thought I’d read them all)

      But yeah, thanks for the recommendations. I’ll put them on my to-read list as soon as this reply is posted.

      So far, best comment I’ve gotten. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›
