{Review+Giveaway} Remembrance by @MegCabot @WmMorrowBks

Do you guys even know how exciting this is for me? Meg Cabot has been my favorite author for my whole reading life. Her books are the very first books that I remember completely devouring and re-reading in the young adult genre. And the Mediator series is my very favorite of my favorites. I have, no joke, read the mediator series at least 15 times. Remembrance  is book 7 in the Mediator series by Meg Cabot, and it takes place 15 years after book 6 left off. What I love the most about Remembrance is that the characters have grown up just like I have. So now this is an adult book. Suze is getting ready to marry off Jesse (who by the way, was my very first book boyfriend. And still one of my top book boyfriends of all time.) Reading Remembrance was like getting to reminisce with some of my older best friends. It was so great. Like being wrapped up in a big hug by someone you… Read more »

There are a bunch of books in the middle of series that I hated the ending of, but they mostly got… Read more »

Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday (6)

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.   After taking a pretty long break from Waiting on Wednesday posts, today I was ready to jump right back into it. And I knew the exact book that I wanted to choose- Underworld by Meg Cabot! It is no secret that I love Meg Cabot, and I have been craving her books lately. She is just one of those authors that you know you can pick up any book of theirs and love it. There is no uncertainty with her. If I want a great read, I can count on Meg.  So anyways, I go to my trusty goodreads and look up underworld….and there was no cover for it! I was crushed. I kept trying to think of other books and there are tons that I am excited for but I just kept coming back to good ole Mrs. Cabot. Then I thought, so what is there is… Read more »

Everyone has been saying Harry Potter, so while I love HP I think I am going to go a different route this week. They are still going to be paranormal roles though, because I think that would… Read more »
