Meg Cabot – The Mediator series, books 4-6: Darkest Hour, Haunted, & Twilight

July 16, 2016

Cabot, Meg - Darkest Hour - 400Cabot, Meg - Haunted - 400Cabot, Meg - Twilight - 400Re-reads. Darkest Hour, Haunted, and Twilight by Meg Cabot (2001, 2003, 2004)
The Mediator, Books 4-6

Read my review of book:
1. Shadowland
2. Ninth Key
3. Reunion

Length: 336, 288, 336 pages
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance/Mystery

Originally Read: 23-25 January 2007
Re-read Started: 10 April 2016
Re-read Finished: 16 April 2016

Where did it come from? I got Shadowland from the library booksale, then the other five books in the series from a friend who I convinced to read them, but she didn’t want to wait for me to return the library’s copies of the latter books, so she bought and read them all but then gave them to me in a decluttering effort. Friends like that are great to have. :)
Why do I have it? Oooh, I have no idea why I picked it up in the first place. (Actually, I think it was because the sixth book in the series is called Twilight and it had come about the same time as that *other* Twilight and I heard a lot of buzz about one of them and I couldn’t remember about which and so I wanted to read them both. Ah, youth.) I decided to re-read them because Cabot had a new book in the series coming out, over a decade later.

When you’re in love with
a ghost, relationships get
quite complicated.

I’m reviewing these books as a group rather than individually, since a lot of what I have to say about them applies to the series as a whole, rather than any individual entry, and I’d rather not repeat myself six times.

Suze can deal with the
angry ghosts, but not the hot
one in her bedroom.
