#Tbt – Mediator Series by Meg Cabot

Standard

#tbt

I recently found out that Meg Cabot will be releasing another Mediator book and this one is for adults. I read the Mediator series when I was in my early teens and I can’t imagine what my childhood would have been like without those books. It was how I discovered Meg Cabot for the first time and I went to the 1-800-Where- R-U series and I still read them even now.

Anyways, the book will be called Remembrance, it will be the seventh book and it will take place after Susannah has graduated from college. The book is going to be for an adult audience which is good because the audience of those books when they were first published would be my age now and would want to know what happened as they aged along with Susannah. I already pre-ordered the book and can’t wait for its release.

In REMEMBRANCE (Mediator 7), the seventh installment of the Mediator series, all Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva).

But when she stumbles across an ancient murder, old ghosts—and ex-boyfriends—aren’t all that come back to haunt her.

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.Meg Cabot Official Website

HERE is the official page from Meg Cabot about the book and here is the wedding invitation to Susannah and Jesse’s wedding. 🙂 The book will be released on February 14, 2016.

A Look Back… #tbt

Standard

I was looking through my bookshelf yesterday and my gaze stopped on my favorite author growing up and I picked up the book with the most creasing on the spine and I read the book once again, I remembered why the book was a favorite.

Chasing Redbird by Sharon Creech

Hardcover
Published February 27th 1997 by HarperCollins Publishers
Zinnia Taylor has looked at those words, embroidered on a sampler hanging in her aunt Jessie’s kitchen, for as long as she can remember. In her 13 years Zinny has rummaged through the spaghetti of her life, hoping for a meatball, but often finding lumps of mud instead. Zinny lives in Bybanks, Kentuckey, with too many brothers and sisters — a mess of “tadpoles” and “pumpkins” is what her uncle Nate calls them. When Zinny discovers a mysterious, overgrown trail that begins on her family’s farm, she’s determined to clear it, from start to finish. She’s finally found a place of her own, a place where she can go, away from her family, to hear herself think. But what Zinny didn’t realize is that the mysteries of the trail are intertwined with her own spaghetti of unanswered questions and family secrets, and that the trail — and her passion to uncover — is leading her on a journey home.

Newberry Medal winner Sharon Creech’s new novel is a powerful, beautifully crafted story about a young girl discovering that life is a tangle of mysteries, surprises and everyday occurrences — a journey that often needs unravelling and that sometimes must be traveled alone. – Goodreads

This was my favorite book growing up. Sharon Creech was my favorite author and I still sometimes read the book every once in a while along with Absolutely Normal Chaos by Sharon Creech as well. As I grew up the context of the book changed as I grew and changed. The meaning of the book changed along with me. As she discovered little by little the pathway, I learned little by little about myself.
The writing is still amazing and the story makes me nostalgic. I can also still see the the little stains of fruit I left on the pages because I couldn’t put it down. I loved this book so much that I even dog eared the pages, which is something I abhor when reading. My books are my children, they are all important to me. I learned early on to take care of my books after that I think.
This was an important of growing up for me so I wanted to share it with you.

Do you have a book that when you think about your childhood, you also think of it? What is it?
