No Offense

Meg Cabot’s Little Bridge Island series adds on another chapter with No Offense, a bland, sitcommy, corny, mindboggling and somewhat grating story about a librarian, a foundling and a single dad-slash-sheriff who manage to make a family. Molly Montgomery has moved all the way from Colorado to t ...

Bridal Boot Camp

Y’all. This book made me angry. First of all, it’s maybe fifty pages long and ends at 86% of the way through the Kindle copy. Second of all… well, let’s return to the fifty pages. Roberta ‘Rob’ James runs a boot camp fitness class at the local gym for engaged folks looking to get in s ...

The Boy is Back

Meg Cabot always makes me laugh. What distinguishes her best books from her less successful efforts is the depth of characterization behind the humor. Unfortunately, The Boy Is Back ranks among her less successful and shallower efforts. This is a story told entirely through text sources (text messag ...

Royal Wedding

Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo (or Mia, for short) has returned to keeping a diary the way she did as a girl, and it’s just in time to document some new crazy episodes in her life. Her dad, the Crown Prince, is in jail; her stalker is threatening her, a family secret is co ...

Insatiable

Another author has been seduced by creatures of the night. Insatiable is the first book of a new vampire series by Meg Cabot. While the premise of the story is rather familiar, and it’s getting a bit old to see more and more authors jump on the bandwagon, the book is well-written and I’m still i ...

Forever Princess

I have been an avid follower of Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries since 2001, when I came across the first two volumes in a bookstore and read them in one sitting. Since then, I have bought each volume as soon as it came out, usually paying full price for the hardback. Forever Princess, together with P ...

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched

I've been a Meg Cabot fan for years and was very excited to be reviewing Queen of Babble Gets Hitched, the third in her trilogy featuring vintage clothing maven Lizzie Nichols. It's a good book, but it doesn't fit in with the previous two and left me wondering if I'd missed something colossal. (A ...

Pants on Fire

Pants on Fire is one of Meg Cabot’s stand-alone titles and was published in Great Britain as Tommy Sullivan Is a Freak. While it does not quite achieve the near-perfection of Teen Idol, my all-time favorite stand-alone YA title by Cabot, it is still a compelling read with a remarkably imperfect he ...

Queen of Babble in the Big City

For me, Meg Cabot is a compulsively, addictively readable author. I can't seem to resist her books, whatever genre they are, whatever audience they are written for. Fortunately, she writes at a steady pace so there is always something new from her on the shelf. Queen of Babble in the Big City is t ...

Size 14 Is Not Fat Either

Size 14 Is Not Fat Either follows Size 12 Is Not Fat, Meg Cabot's chick lit/mystery hybrid. For those who have not read the first novel (which you needn't have done to enjoy this one), Heather Wells is a former teenage pop star who was dropped by her record company when she insisted on singing her o ...
