Wowza am I ever excited for this post. So without further ado, let's dive in:
The Mediator was my first true literary love. Meg Cabot and my father are simultaneously to blame both for my passion for reading and my fascination in the paranormal: specifically, ghosts. Without this book, I wouldn't have found a whole lot more other great books, and I wouldn't have the same adoration I do for my favourite hobby. It nothing short of changed my life.
Susannah Simon never been quite normal. Well, would you be, if you could see ad speak to (and were constantly plagued by) the dead? It's an awful weight to carry, and feels more like a curse than a gift, but badass old Suze has always gotten by fine.
That is until, upon moving from NYC to sunny Carmel-by-the-Sea California for her mom's re-marriage, she stupidly crushes on Jesse de Silva -- a hundred-and-fifty-year-old ghost who lives in her new bedroom and was most likely shot in her very house. (Not that he ever talks about it.)
And if those weren't problems enough (did I mention her three step brothers? Yep. More problems. Go figure. Story of her life.) there's a murderous ghost haunting her school, and Father Dominic (catholic priest, principal and fellow mediator) has very different ideas about how to deal with her, forcing Suze to take matters into her own hands...
Well, she never has been one to sit on the sidelines.
Suze is on my list of top-5-fave-protagonists, and Jesse on my list of top-5-fave-book-guys. He is just too cute! I could eat him up with a spoon.
I. Adore. This. Book. Series. In fact, I borderline worship it. It is pure, undiluted, sheer awesomeness.
Star Rating: THE WHOLE UNIVERSE!!!
Books in the series:
Shadowland/Love You to Death
Ninth Key/High Stakes
Darkest Hour/Young Blood
(first name is US title; second name is UK title)
I really, really, really love this series. The voice is addictive, the plot fast-paced and clever with great twists, and the characters are too loveable for words.
AND THERE'S GOING TO BE A BOOK SEVEN!
Check the Facebook fan page! (that I can't embed for you because my phone won't let me. Sorry! And yeah, I gave in and blogged from the app. My laptop is going through a slow phase.)
Now everyone go read it because I swear you won't regret it!
Au revoir, mes amis :) a bientot x
