All Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and since becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva). But when she’s hired as a guidance counselor at her alma mater, she stumbles across a decade-old murder, and soon ancient history isn

The "revelations" aren't going to mean nearly as much to a first time reader.

The segue is kind of natural since it's just a matter of her age. In my opinion, it's hardly a really adult/racy book so not a lot is different to the earlier books.(less)

REMEMBRANCE will be the first ever adult installment of the Mediator, published by William Morrow, the adult division of HarperCollins, the company that brought you the YA books in the series.

I love this!!! I was 14/15 when I read the YA books and now that I've grown up, so have the characters from the Mediator. I am really excited for this!

Sigh....... This was a letdown after my sky high expectations (and how the last Princess Diaries book was basically flawless).

Paul, why did you have to come back? Suze, why so many secrets? Bleh. At least the squad is still as badass as ever. And I want a sequel with the triplets, ASAP.

So I realize you and I don’t know each other, that’s why it’s hard to explain how in love with The Mediator series I am, because if you have met me it would be so obvious. Probably every person I know knows that I love books, and pretty much everyone knows that The Mediator is my numero uno. It’s the series that got me hooked on Young Adult. It’s how I discovered God’s gift to YA, Meg Cabot. I have pretty much memorized each book on the series thanks to the number of times I have

This really hard for me to say, so I'm going to say it fast:


Don't get me wrong. It's good. It's really good. We see Suze and the gang again, there are panty-melting moments the one Jesse del Silva, and a meaty mystery that keeps you reading.

But—(Come on, you knew there'd be a but)—it's lacking. My expectations were sky high and it fell short of the stars.

Re-read 5/31/17: Still so sad this is over :( although I will say upon re-reading this, I am a bit more aware of some problematic elements that went on during this book, so I'm knocking off a star. Will probably go into that further in my May Wrap-Up in a few days.

This is not a drill, everyone. Nor is it an extremely early and well-organised April Fool's joke on the entire Meg Cabot fanbase.

This. Is. Real.

Yes, this seventh book in the highly-acclaimed, swoonworthy and badass The Mediator series is a real dream come true! The 400 page book is TBR February 2nd 2016 which means that you won't have to wait long for more Suze & Jesse awesomeness.

I have a lot of feelings about this book - only natural, considering The Mediator series was totally my teenaged self's favourite, Suze was my inspiration, and Jesse was totally my book-boyfriend.

In short, I'm disappointed. This (and Proposal) actually feel ghostwritten, that's how different they are from the original series. The plot is really bad. The characterisation drove me up the wall. I'm going to do this in parts because I have a lot to say:

After everything Suze and Jesse has been through, REMEMBRANCE is the time where we get to see them older and not necessarily wiser. I find that Suze is still as stubborn and secretive as ever. Maybe I'm being a little too hard on her? But I always find that keeping secrets from your best friend and fiancée isn't going to help your relationship get any stronger. Even if you're trying to protect him that's not really up to you. So I found the ghost story that she ends up solving to be the biggest ...more

Before I cracked open this book I did what naturally got curious about how much other's hated the book in order to measure if I too was going to rate on the hate meter. I'm a curious and I'm a little attached to a bit of negativity, hence my desire to note "problematic" issues before I come across them firsthand. There was a lot of talk off lost of authenticity, in terms of Suze's voice and Jesse's characterisation. There was boo's for lack of "creativity", in terms of plot (a little too much de ...more

Well, the good news is that this was considerably better than the new Princess Diaries, I actually enjoyed myself at parts and didn't really get angry at any points.
The bad news is that I don't really like Jesse anymore.
Which is totally personal, of course, he didn't get worse or anything, I just realized that his kind of character is not attractive to me anymore, which is precisely one of the perils of books making a "come back". When I was a tween, Suze&Jesse was one of my favorite ships of al

I am sorely disappointed. There, I said it. In my history of reading Meg Cabot (and I have read a lot of Meg Cabot since she is one of my fav authors), I have never ever been disappointed and here I am. Sad, angry, not satisfied (cue Hamilton because that is my life.)

Mediator is one of those series I push at everyone who hasn’t read it (ASK JASPRIT. I practically shoved it down her throat. I actually didn’t, but I was very insistent.)

It was fun to read a completely new Mediator novel. The characters were older yet retained their personalities, which was good. The haunting in this book was more complex, which I enjoyed. It was a little less formulaic this time around. The only thing that annoys me is how much Suze hides things - she's a terrible communicator. But that's more of a character flaw than a book flaw. Overall, I really liked this one. The beauty of this series is that I am able to keep my expectations low and have ...more

I received an Advance Reader Copy via Edelweiss. This in no way impacted on my view.

This was my second ever approval via Edelweiss, and the fact that it was a book by one of my favourite authors made it all the more better! Cabot's The Mediator series has had a special place in my heart since I read them all way back in 2010 or something, and when I heard that she would be returning to the world, with a new adult book (just like with The Princess Diaries), I was desperate to get my hands on a co

Time to DNF this one for now. I will get back to it eventually as I reread the whole original series this year just so I could read this new addition, which ended up being (for the about 30% I've read) an annoying dissapointment.

I'm not the biggest fan of Mediator series in the first place, but it had its fun moments and as far as paranormal books from that time go (2005 I think), it was pretty awesome in comparison.

This one though, I could not stand Suze in this one. Jesse seemed slightly out

You know those books that, not being extraordinary, become some of our favourites? The Mediator series is, for me, a series of those books.

And a long time ago I had resigned myself to the six books that the author had written, always with the conviction (for she assured) that there would no longer be any more books of this series. Now imagine my surprise when, after 12 years (I did

I have only made it through chapter two and I'm already so...angry and disgusted and yet simultaneously bored with it that I can't continue. I feel like my love for Suze and Jesse and the original six books in the Mediator series have been forever sullied by this garbage.

This is the 7th book in The Mediator series by Meg Cabot and a long awaited conclusion as the first six were released over 10 years ago! I was first introduced to this series back in high school and Jesse and Suze were my obsession. I also reread the first six books last year to re-immerse myself in the life of a mediator and then straight after, this book was announced, I couldn't have got the timing any better!

Literally. Gasping. For. Breathe. Right. Now.

It’s not right that as a grown woman, I am bouncing on my bed and squealing at the prospect of getting reacquainted with the sexy Jesse De Silva but what can I say? He was the man/ghost of my dreams as a young innocent teen. Clearly, I haven’t grown up as much as I hoped!

OMG…just occurred to me that this is now an adult book sooo does that mean there will be some smexy time featuring a Dr Jesse in a lab coat?

I think I just fainted.

Re-Read 12/30/20: I can't even tell you how excited I was when this came out! The Mediator series is my absolute favorite series from pre-teenhood. Whenever I was home sick from school, I would challenge myself to re-read all 6 books. I think I've read them each about 10 times at this point.

I see this book get a lot of criticism, but I think it is perfectly in the spirit (pun intended) of the original 6. Suze and Jesse have character flaws that grew up with them. The plots are always a little fa

How did I not know about this book until now?! This was one of my favorite teen series growing up. I feel so irresponsible--17 year old Laura would totally be screaming at me if she could see me now.

In other news, JESSE IS BACK.

I can die a happy nerd.
