Airhead by Meg Cabot

I know I know…it’s been awhile. And well…it took me forever to read this book. Which is kinda funny because I had like 5 pages left for the longest time, but thought that there was like 30. It just had an insert of the next book in the series in the back and I didn’t know it. Haha…jokes on me. I normally look for those things, but oh well.

Anywho…

I really liked this novel. I didn’t know at first that it eas going to be made into a series…which scared me, because it was going too slow for an actually finale. So, when I finally did get to the end…I was happy to know that it was a series.

Anywho…again…
Em Watts is your typical loner-type. She has one really good friend, Christopher (who she’s in love with), has attitude, isn’t afraid to speak her mind, and is hated by the popular crowd. Until one day when she, Christopher and her younger sis (soc wannabe) go to a grand opening of a new Stark Mega store (which is a commercialized music store). Her sis sees 17 yr old supermodel Nikki Howard and runs over to get her autograph. Then BAM! two things happen. Em gets crushed by a falling t.v. and Nikki has a brain aneurysm. The next thing Em knows she’s waking up in a hospital bed, her family is treating weird and her doctors won’t answer any questions about why she is in the hospital.

She doesn’t find out what really happened that day…until random events take place…she gets roses from Gabriel Luna, a musician that was at the grand opening, her sister stares at her like she’s an alien, and two strangers kidnap her from the hospital. What in the world is going on? What happened that day?

A new surgical procedure, a new life, and so much more are in store for Em. Can she handle it all and still get the one boy that is still on her mind?

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot

As far as sequels go, I think this was the best out of the series. And I couldn’t believe it, but there actually some shocker points in there for me. Like the fact that…

~~~~Spoiler Alert~~~~

 

 

 

Luke was totally cheating on her throughout their relationship! What the hell!! I don’t know that I would have been so calm about that the way she was. Although she did already have another man in her bed, that just happened to be Luke’s best friend. But still!!!

 

 

~~~~End of Spoiler Alert~~~~

 

 

I liked the fact that Lizzie seemed to really grow up in this book. It’s about damn time too!!! I have a case of the Lizzie’s myself and can’t keep a secret for the life of me. But we try don’t we? I’m getting better about it, making a conscious effort not to blab everything that’s going on in my life to everyone. It’s hard though when you’re not a good liar and you have some juicy information and you want to tell someone so bad, but you know it would be so wrong.

 

Anyway, the book was awesome. Go out and read it. Another A plus for Meg Cabot.

Jinx by Meg Cabot

I just realized that I read a lot of Meg Cabot books. She is one of my favorite authors. Not only does she write for YA, but she also has a few Adult series out there, too.

This is one of her YA novels. I was a little skeptical when I first read the reviews on it, but I stuck with it. I really liked the idea of someone being “jinxed” and that they are the only ones that have put that “curse” on themselves and are the only ones that can get rid of it.

In saying that, I was a little disappointed by this book. It was very predictable with no surprises at all. I wanted a little more from this book. I did like the wiccan/witch theme throughout the book, but once again I wanted something more than wasn’t there. I can’t quite put my finger on what I wanted. I almost think I missed Cabot’s witty charm that she portrays in all of her other novels. I do recommend this book though.  It’s not the greatest book I’ve ever read, but it is by far not the worst. It’s definitely a must for Cabot fans.
