Recommends it for: chick lit lovers, Meg Cabot fans
OH MY GOSH!!

I love Heather Wells (the main character). She is so relatable it's sometimes scary. Having been an avid fan of the Heather Wells character since I read the first page of 'Size 12 is not fat', I've avidly followed this series written by Meg Cabot.

I'm not usually a fan of chick lit, but the balance of humor, mystery, characters etc in these books makes them so much fun to read. Heather is a pop tween hit turned college worker just trying to make a living. Shes funny, in love with Coop...more

I like Meg Cabot books but some of her novels definitely go in the 'beach reads' pile. They're amusing but not particularly satisfying -- much like the junk food Heather Wells is always eating.

The concept for this series is cute: former teen pop sensation, Heather Wells, now broke and overweight, works in a NY college dorm as an administrator and solves the repeat murders that take place there. You have to look past the idea that NY detectives are so stupid they couldn't find their butts with tw...more

I really didn't like this book. After reading the first two books in the series I felt there was a nice buildup of the story and I really could relate to Heather (except the pop star part)...and then I open book 3 and at first see that they story is very short. I move past that and read on. Wow, talk about rushed ending. Everything happened so fast in regards to Heather's love life and even though it was pretty obvious she would end up that way it still felt so rushed.

Also, the mystery aspect w...more

I did not know this was the third book in the series. Hopefully 1 and 2 were much better than this one, because I found it ridiculous. The main character Heather is so annoying. She has a boyfriend, a crush and Cooper who are all dying to be with her and all she does is complain about her size. The romance with the cafeteria lady and security guard was silly. The murder mystery, murderer, solving the mystery and ending of the book were all dumb. I will not be reading a book by Meg Cabot again.
Rita
These are the first Meg Cabot books I've read and I really have enjoyed them. Yes, they're fluff. But her dialogue and characters are so genuine that it all seems so effortless. It's fizzy fluff with a zip. Effervescent fluff. If her writing were food, it would be that pop rock cotton candy, which honestly, we all need a little more of in our diet.

I rushed out into a snow storm yesterday to buy this book because I had just finished Size 14 is Not Fat Either and I just wasn't ready to part with quirky Heather Wells. I rarely laugh out loud at a book as hard I did when I read this series. So, naturally in a mood for more laughter, and hopefully a resolution to the Heather/Cooper love saga, I speed read through this third installment in the series.

Unfortunately, I felt this was the weakest book in the series. It still had me cracking a few...more

I was so excited to finally read this book! I’m a huge fan of the Heather Wells mysteries, and I couldn’t wait to see what one of my favorite heroines had in store for me this time. I must say that it was better than I expected

So, the last we’d heard from Heather, she had just met her remedial math teacher who turned out to be a hottie. Now, in Big Boned, remedial math teacher Tad is now Heather’s boyfriend! Which is totally forbidden, since it’s against the rules for teachers to date students....more

This is the third novel in the Heather Wells series, following Size 12 is Not Fat and Size 14 is Not Fat Either. Personally, I think this might just be the best in the series, albeit a seemingly quicker read than the others. But truly? They're all brilliant. Heather, despite being a former pop princess, is a down-to-earth, funny character who's instantly lovable and easy to relate to. I'd advise you to read the other two books in the series first, although it's pretty easy to follow up and Meg's...more

I had ordered several books by Meg Cabot, and without paying attention to the order that they were written and published, I read this one first. This is actually the 3rd in the Heather Mills series, after Size 12 Is Not Fat and Size 14 Isn't Fat Either. I can say, though, that even not having read the first two books in this series I wasn't lost. I'm sure that knowing the characters in the book may have given the characters more depth, but it certainly wasn't necessary to understand the storylin...more

Even though Big Boned is pretty much the same book as the first two books in the Heather Wells series (Size 12 Is Not Fat and Size 14 Is Not Fat Either), it's still a fun, fast read. Heather, a former teen pop star and now assistant residence hall director at the fictional New York College's Fischer Hall, tries to solve the dormitory's third (or maybe fourth, I've lost track) murder to occur in the year she's worked there, while at the same time figure out what to do about what seems to be a loo...more

I love these books by Meg Cabot.

Former teen pop star, turned assistant residence hall director stumbles upon a dead body. Again.

This probably shouldn't be a surprise as the the residence hall she works in has been nicknamed Death Dorm.

Heather, who has finally found love in her math teaching assistant Tad, comes to work only to find that her boss has been murdered. Of course, she also has feelings for Cooper - her ex-boyfriend's brother. And in the mix of all this, unions on campus are threateni...more

I was a little disappointed with the ending as I wanted a bit more in the romance department. I pretty much knew how it was going to play out but it seemed like it just sorta happened way too fast. I wanted a little more build up. But hey, it was still a really cute series and I enjoyed it a lot. I just hope Meg Cabot will continue writing more adult series. Her YA titles are always cute and enjoyable, but it's nice to read about more adult characters with her sense of humor too.
Magda Gregorski
I think I read this book before or I at least started to read it because the beginning of the story sounds familiar. It is ok, nothing social, I am at page 200 so I might as well finish it. ....Ok so this book was not the best and I do not think I finished the first time and there was a reason for it. I guess it was not cheesy enough for me.

4 STARS

"Life is reasonably rosy for plus-size ex-pop star turned Assistant Dormitory Director and sometime sleuth Heather Wells. Her freeloading ex-con dad is finally moving out. She still yearns for her hot landlord, Cooper Cartwright, but her relationship with "rebound beau," vigorous vegan math professor Tad Tocco, is more than satisfactory. Best of all, nobody has died lately in "Death Dorm," the aptly nicknamed student residence that Heather assistant-directs. Of course every silver lining...more

Being the assistant hall director in New York City can't be an easy job. With all the drama that young adults bring with them to college (believe me, I know all about it), I can't imagine trying to run a dorm smoothly. Being an ex-pop star and overseeing a hall nicknamed "Death Dorm" is asking for trouble. Maybe that's why I've fallen in love with the Heather Wells Mysteries series. The storytelling itself is phenomenal -...more

This book (heck, this series) made me laugh so much.

I am enjoying this series a lot. Heather is a fun character with some very endearing flaws. I like her supporting cast of characters too. The plot for this book was ok, I couldn't feel too bad for the victim because, well no one likes him. I didn't suspect the murderer either, so it was a nice surprise. I enjoyed how invested Heather was in the students' successes. I couldn't get behind the Heather/ Tad relationship because I saw so little of it, therefore I was happy with(if startled by) the en...more

Light reading, not compelling but amusing. I would read more if they were on a feature shelf, but am not likely to go out of my way to find more.

Lagi-lagi si heroine gemuk ini coba-coba jadi detektif. Tapi, dari ketiga buku, Big Boned paling seru, karena, akhirnya kita bisa liat gimana akhir ceritanya Heather sama si ganteng Cooper Cartwright. Tante Cabot (she's REALLY the great author EVER. Totally my favorite all the times) nggak pernah gagal bikin aku menganga kagum saking pinternya dia bikin tema dan cerita.

Heather Wells terlibat dalam kasus lagi .

Nggak juga. Kini, di musim semi, Heather memulai kelasnya--kelas yang diperjuangkannya...more

This is by far the best and funniest of the series. Within the first chapter, I was laughing hysterically, and remained amused throughout the entire novel. Heather Wells is the kind of character I relate to. She's a bit clueless sometimes, finds herself in ridiculous situations, but she's a good person and tries her best to make things right. I love her! And Cabot has a talent for making her guy characters irresistible. I want a Cooper!

The mystery was very predictable; however, the way it's exec...more

Heather's back and there's been yet another murder at Death Dorm.

And, yep you guessed it, she gets involved again.

Heather seems to have the worst luck with bosses: her first one is a psychopathic murderer; her second got promoted to another building and now her third boss has been shot in the head. No luck, eh?

I thought the bit at the beginning (which was a sort of running joke throughout the book), where she goes for a run and is convinced her uterus has fallen out, was hilarious.

Sometimes I wo...more

I’m an avid fan of the books in the Heather Wells series, and although Big Boned wasn’t as good as the other books in the series, it was still enjoyable.

When Heather finds her new boss shot dead in his office, she’s baffled. Because, really, who’d want to kill her Garfield-loving, albeit strict, boss?

When a wrongly accused student is arrested for the murder, Heather finds herself, again, in the middle of the chaos. Now there are two students in jail, one in hysterics, and one giant inflatable...more

My concerns that Heather would get fatter and fatter with each book until Heather Wells mystery number 22: "You Say Morbid Obesity, I Say More to Love" are not totally dispelled. I love a cookie or two and a bowl of chips with my beer but this girl never developed a healthy attitude to food (eat your feelings much, Heather). Some of her food choices made me feel kinda ill and sad. Vegetables are actually a wonderful thing. Caffeinated beverages with chocolate syrup and whipped cream? Not so much...more

Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun...more
