One thing I have to admit about the ocean: it's very quiet down there. I mean, really. No more shrieking gulls, crashing of waves, shouts from the surfers. No, under the sea, it's just you and the water and the ghosts who are trying to kill you.

Okay, yeah, so. I wasn't supposed to read this (I am TRYING to save them, but oh boy it isn't working out) but when the holiday weekend is busy and you're doing amazing things like, say, cleaning out all your old clothes so your bedroom closet

This one perhaps had a more somber mood than the others. Less wacky and more oh, shit things are getting serious.

I love meeting Suze’s best friend, Gina who seems very cool and distinctive. I seriously love how the characters in this series are so relatable and fleshed-out. They never once feel too 2-dimensional or undeveloped.

I also appreciate the fact that Suze’s stepbrothers are becoming more and more like her family. Doc of course cares about her since the 1st book (I kinda miss him in this

I normally don’t like pop culture references in books but I love that I get all of the late 90s / early 2000s references this series makes. It definitely dates the books and I’m sure that new younger readers wouldn’t enjoy it but I’m just having so much fun retreading these books. This installment had good moments but it definitely wasn’t my favorite - the plot kind of felt recycled from the other two books? The concept was slightly more compelling than the last book but it also wasn’t too new. ...more

These books are great! In this installment our heroine has taken her popularity to a new place—dating a nerd. I know. You would expect it to be a football player or some other popular guy. But those did not end well in the last two books so maybe the nerd will end better. Or we can just assume our heroine is not destined for your average love story.
This book was lots of fun and I’m still enjoying the series. On to the next one. 🤗💕📚

Even though this is probably the most underwhelming part of the series, I would like to symbolically dedicate my 600th review on Goodreads to Meg Cabot. Meg Cabot is the author who absolutely played a huge part of my elementary and high school days and even though her books may not be masterpieces, they made me overcome a lot of problems and made me feel good when I was down. The Mediator series is fast-paced, action-packed and swoon-worthy and I loved both Suze and Jesse. I've always b

The story starts with Suze’s best friend from New York coming to visit her in Carmel, California. Suze's stepbrothers Brad and Jake (aka Dopey and Sleepy) suddenly start fighting over Gina's (Suze's friend from New York) attentions. Gina and Suze were hanging at the beach and decide to go get more drinks because it was warm. At the market, something catches Suze's attention, four people in formal wear. Upon further inspection, she notices something else, they are all dead or otherwise known as g ...more

This is my favorite in the series so far (I know it just keeps getting better and better) but I LOVED Reunion. The RLS Angels were my favorite ghosts so far (Jesse excluded), and I loved that Jake, Brad, and David had become Suze's family and she was very protective of them (and them of her). Their relationships have just strengthened with each book--with the occasional tryst as with all siblings.

I sort of laughed that Gina came out to visit her best friend but they spent little time together.

Mean Spirits, the third book in the Mediator series was extremely underwhelming.

We follow Suzie while she tries to control the spirits that are causing havoc in her new home. She also must keep her secret hidden from her best friend Gina who is visiting from New York.

While Gina was a spunky character I didn't feel like she added anything to this story. I felt like she was put in place to put a rift between the other characters in this story and Suzie. For example

Again, I really loved this book. I read it too fast - now I have to wait the weekend for the next one! Grrr. I'm going to do my quick comments:
1. More Jesse action! Yay! Though, I mean, I'm still waiting for some MAJOR stuff. At least she admits that she's in love with him, and he really cares about her. That's enough for me, for now.
2. Again, everything's not typical. I'm good with that - Michael being what he is. It adds the needed spice!
3. Gina is awesome! I loved the complications she causes

I am getting really sick of Meg Cabot reiterating the basis of the series and telling me what Suze is like in every single volume. If you haven't figure any of those things out after reading 3 books, I'm not sure there's hope for you. Consequently, I find myself liking the series less and less as she reuses passages again and again.
What I desperately want is for Cabot to develop the relationship with Jesse. If she put even one iota more focus on that and spared me another diatribe about how dif
I got a little frustrated with Gina because it seemed like she spent a lot more time being there to flirt with Suze's brothers than being there to visit Suze, but she came through and I respect that.

The family dynamics in this series are FASCINATING. I kind of love Sleepy. Suze doesn't appreciate him enough.

The murders/ghosts in this one just made me sad.

Yes! I finally completed my series! I didn't wanna continue reading before I could read them all, but I was missing the fifth book still. However, last week I went shopping in Antwerp and in a second hand bookstore I found a copy of the fifth book IN THE RIGHT EDITION! I was incredibly happy! (And sorry for the person coming after me who was interested in the series and saw book 5 was missing...) And since I didn't have much reading time today, this book was perfect!

This is a very fun series and I very much enjoy reading them! These books are beginning to get darker, but they still have the light-hearted moments.

At the store on day, Suze sees four ghosts of teenagers. It turns out that they were the RLS Angels, the most popular kids of RLS and died in a terrible accident the previous weekend. When the Angels keep trying to kill one of her classmates, the class geek by the name of Micha

The third book in the Mediator series, Reunion, was significantly weaker than the first two. After loving the second book in the series, Ninth Key, I was thoroughly disappointed by this one for two main reasons: the setting and the characters.

Cabot started out strong in the first two books, but she lost is me on the setting in this one. Living in Northern California I can definitively state that nobody sane could wear a bikini on a beach in March. Yes, it might be over 70 degrees, but that wind

This review applies to the entire Mediator Series.

The Mediator Series was my first series read of the year and let me tell you, it was a fantastically FUN way to start off my reading year. The series follows Suze Simon who has the ability to see, to talk to, and to beat up - whatever the occasion warrants - ghosts in order to send them on their way to the afterworld. The series was completed after six books in 2005, with an added novella and seventh novel

I'm not much of a YA fan anymore and it's been years since I read the previous books of the series, so I was hesitant picking this one up, but I'm glad I finally did.

Suze, the teenage mediator, reluctantly gets involved with a group of ghosts that seem to be out for revenge. She is more of the hit now, get answers later kind of girl, but thankfully her allies, the principal of her school who is also a mediator, and Jesse, the ghost boy that shares her room, are there to provide alternative solut

Okay, i was excited as hell to start the book but it made me really annoyed at how she starts always remembering exactly how things happened in the past book. I mean, I get it, I'm reading it all at once and I don't get to say a thing really, but if she started a bit more discrete, not the word I want but let's go with it, it'd be a little better. And by the third book I don't think she needs to create such a suspense when Suze sees someone who's dead. I mean, we've seen it, two whole books alre ...more

I'm really enjoying this series - they've all been such fun reads! Suze's sense of humor always gets me - even if Jesse doesn't always get it! lol
I feel like everything is growing as a whole though. Her step-family is starting to feel more like family. All the characters are kind of growing more and I like watching the progression . Meeting Gina in this book was a fun little twist too. Another new yorker brought into the small laid back California town. She sure did create a stir with Suze's ste

I really love this series so much! I loved that we finally got to meet Suze's best friend Gina. She's such a brilliant character, and I really enjoyed the little bits of family development we got throughout this book, like "mom" and "sister" I'm a sucker for domestic feels.

I also think the story line of this one was pretty fab wit

I have realized that I can only enjoy these books far apart from one another. Reading this right after having read the second book only caused me to be annoyed at how immature Suze is and how, once again, in the beginning of the book she seemed it necessary to inform us that she is a mediator. Yes, we know. WE READ THE PREVIOUS TWO BOOKS. I know this book is meant for middle schoolers, but even they have long we memories than how Meg Cabot (or Jenny Carroll whatever her pen name is) must think t ...more
I just realized how judgemental Suze really is.. And how much slut-shaming, victim blaming was included in the story-line. There's also so many times you can describe a guy as a "hottie." And Suze tends to do this.. But I still really love her and Jesse together. Still a great paranormal slow-burn romance! ...more

“This was very exciting. I'd never had two boys get into a fight over me before. The fact that one of the boys was my stepbrother, however, and held about as much romantic appeal for me as Max, the family dog, somewhat dampened my enthusiasm. And Michael wasn't much of a catch, either, when you actually thought about it, being a potential murderer and all. Oh, why did I have to have such a couple of losers fighting over me? Why couldn't Matt Damon and Ben Affleck fight over me? Now that would be truly excellent.” 90 likes
