Mediator Series by Meg Cabot

 I finished reading the mediator series about a week ago and I love them! I read a book review of the Mediator Series in a magazine and it seemed interesting so I decided to read the books. They are amazing! I love how Meg Cabot used humor and such in heavy situations and I like Suze's thoughts. 

For those who haven't read the books, here's the story: Susannah Simon is a normal teenage girl except that she can see and talk to ghosts. When she was a kid her father died and after many years her mother is remarrying. Now she has to move from New York City to Carmel, California with her new family which consists of her mother, her step-father Andy and her three step-brothers. In her new home she finds out that there's 150 year old ghost of a cute and totally hot guy named Jesse living in her bedroom. The books then follow her ghost adventures and how she falls in love with Jesse and then risks her life to save him. 

Here's a short summary of the books:
Title: USA: Shadowland/UK: Love You to Death
Author: Meg Cabot
Cover: above
Summary: There's a hot guy in Susannah Simon's bedroom. Too bad he's a ghost.

Suze is a mediator-a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.

But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's a ghost with revenge on her mind.and Suze happens to be in the way.

Title: USA: Ninth Key/UK: High Stakes
Author: Meg Cabot
Summary: Ghosts ruin everything. Especially your love life.

Everything is going great for Suze. Her new life in California is a whirlwind of parties and excellent hair days. Tad Beaumont, the hottest boy in town, has even asked Suze out on her very first date. Suze is so excited that she's willing to ignore her misgivings about Tad.particularly the fact that he's not Jesse, whose ghostly status-not to mention apparent disinterest in her-make him unattainable.

What Suze can't ignore, however, is the ghost of a murdered woman whose death seems directly connected to dark secrets hidden in none other than Tad Beaumont's past.

Title: USA: Reunion/UK: Mean Spirits
Author: Meg Cabot
Summary: Accidents happen. With ghostly consequences, if you're Susannah Simon.

The RLS Angels are out for blood, and only Suze can stop them-since she's the only one who can see them. The four ghostly teenagers died in a terrible car accident, and they blame Suze's classmate Michael.and they'll stop at nothing until he's joined them in the realm of the dead.

As Suze desperately fends off each attempt on Michael's life, she finds she can relate to the Angels' fury. Because their deaths turn out not to have been accidental at all. And their killer is only too willing to strike again.

Title: USA: Darkest Hour/UK: Young Blood
Author: Meg Cabot
Summary: What-or who-is buried in Susannah's backyard?

When the nineteenth-century ghost of Maria de Silva wakes her up in the middle of the night, Suze knows this is no ordinary visitation-not just from the knife at her throat, either. In life, Maria was the fiancée of Jesse-the same Jesse who was murdered a hundred and fifty years before. The same Jesse Suze is in love with.

Maria threatens Suze: The backyard construction must cease. Suze has a pretty good idea what-or rather, who-Maria doesn't want found. But in solving Jesse's murder, will Suze end up losing him forever?

Title: USA: Haunted/ UK: Grave Doubts
Author: Meg Cabot
Summary: Is it possible to be haunted by someone who isn't even dead?

Suze is used to trouble, but this time she's in deep: Ghostly Jesse has her heart, but Paul Slater, a real flesh-and-blood guy, is warm for her form. And mediator Paul knows how to send Jesse to the Great Beyond. For good.

Paul claims he won't do anything to Jesse as long as Suze will go out with him. Fearing she'll lose Jesse forever, Suze agrees. But even if Suze can get Jesse to admit his true feelings for her, what kind of future can she have with a guy who's already dead?

Title: USA: Twilight/ UK: Heaven Sent
Author: Meg Cabot
Summary: Suze has gotten used to ghosts. They wake her up in the middle of the night. They haunt her locker at school. She's even spotted a few down at Carmel Beach. Suze is a mediator, after all, and communicating with the dead is all in a day's work for her. The last thing she ever expected was to fall in love with one: Jesse, a nineteenth-century hottie.

But when she and Paul Slater, himself a mediator of undeniable power (and dubious intent), discover that the powers they share aren't limited to helping ghosts resolve their earthly woes, but can also be used to determine whether or not they become ghosts in the first place, Suze can't help but freak. Not because she suddenly knows how to alter the course of history, but because Paul, can, too. And Paul would like nothing better than to prevent Jesse's murder, keeping him from becoming a ghost and allowing him to live a natural life at last.only in the nineteenth century. Meaning Jesse and Suze would never meet.

Suddenly, Suze is the faced with the most important decision of her life: Allow the only guy she's ever loved to have the life he's always longed for.or keep him anchored forever in half-life at her side. But will Jesse choose to live without her, or die to love her?

I would love it if these book series would be adopted as TV series! I don't think a movie will work 'cause I don't think it will do the books justice. But I think a TV show would be perfect! Here are some people that I think should be casted as the book characters for the TV show/movie version of these book series:

Suze: Lucy Hale or Selena Gomez
Jesse: Pierre Boulanger or Taylor Lautner
Father Dom: Gary Oldman
Doc/David: Forrest Landis
Sleepy/Jake: Zac Efron or Alex Pettyfer
Dopey/Brad: Alex Pettyfer or Logan Lerman
Andy Ackerman: Greg Kinnear
Mom: Kelly Preston
CeeCee: Evanna Lynch
Adam: Cameron Bright
Paul Slater: Zac Efron or Cody Linley

What do you think? Who do you think should play the characters in the movie/show version of the books? And if you've read the books, what do you think about them? Comment below ^_^


  1. For Jesse definitely Pierre Boulanger. Taylor Lautner just doesn't really fit how I think of Jesse.. Nice blog by the way! :)
