Book Review: Remembrance
Book 7 in the Mediator series
AUTHOR: Meg Cabot
PUBLISHED: February 2nd, 2016
CATEGORY: Adult (though it has a YA crossover appeal because the original series is YA)
GENRE: Urban Fantasy, Ghosts
PREMISE: Susannah and Jesse are now grown up and engaged. Of course, Paul Slater would choose now to come back into Susannah's life.
MY REVIEW: Once upon a time back in high school, I fell in love with the Mediator series. This was the late nineties or so. I had just discovered Princess Diaries and then discovered that Cabot had a whole slew of books out there and from then on, I've been a Cabot fangirl for life. Needless to say, when I heard this was coming out, there were lots of fangirl squees.
As with Royal Wedding, this was a bit predictable, but it was still damn enjoyable as always with Cabot. We got to see what happened to all our favorite characters. This book also came at a good time as I've been dealing with family issues. Cabot's books always put me in a good mood, and this one was no exception.
Seems as though Cabot is continuing this revisit to nostalgia because apparently there's also another book in her Boy series, which is an adult romance series that tells the story via emails, journals, and any sort of paper thing you can think of. I for one, welcome it and am holding out hope for an American Girl sequel. Also, I wouldn't be opposed to a spin-off series about the triplets who were introduced in this book.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of the Mediator series, Cabot fans
MY RATING: Four and a half out of Five happy fangirl squees
