Meg Cabot brings out her signature humour and wit, as well as some great plot twists and developments.
I was really surprised with how detailed the plot was and how Meg Cabot was able to come up with fresh ideas, problems, and resolutions. This book is a new journey with old friends and it really feels like coming home.
Reading Remembrance was actually a little emotional! It really makes you connect with the book's title 'Remembrance' - a trip down memory lane, reconnecting with past characters and storylines. All the other books come rushing back to you. I was just so excited every time I read a familiar name, or caught a reference to something that had happened in the previous books.
And yes I totally fangirled over Jesse. I mean, come on, the guy is like a bottle of wine he just gets better with age! Favourite quote: I tried to pick just one but I am too weak and in love with this book so I am making it two!
I'm actually very busy and important and don't have time for rich jerks from my past who want to make amends. But I wish you luck on your path toward transformative enlightenment. Bye now. I never cry. It's allergies. They're terrible this time of year. It gives me an excuse to play that overprotective nineteenth-century macho man you're always talking about. Just a quick note about Remembrance. Even though it is the seventh instalment in the series it is the only adult one.
All the other books in the series come under YA. There will be mature themes and situations discussed in the book. It is in no ways overdone, nor does it change the basic nature of the book or the series.
However in Remembrance the characters we know and love are adults and so there is a shift in genre somewhat: Aug 16, Giselle rated it liked it Shelves: I find that Suze is still as stubborn and secretive as ever. Maybe I'm being a little too hard on her? Even if you're trying to protect him that's not really up to you. So I found the ghost story that she ends up solving to be the biggest plot, but after that was done, it kept going and didn't end.
The whole gang was there and it was nice to see what they were up to. Also the villain Paul Slater came back and I don't even know why he did.
It felt so wrong because even after all those years he just hasn't given up on her. Even when she's said she's not interested. He's as annoying as a pest. I was also super annoyed at Suze most of the time wanting to do things her way. I felt like she didn't respect Jesse's wishes at all..
There were some holes in the story that I couldn't help but glare at. And only one point made me tear up and it wasn't even a big deal. Just a present that Jesse gave to her which is so like him. We also don't get to read about the wedding because it's a novella which is in my opinion a cash grab.. But yeah. I was a little disappointed in this one because there wasn't very many obstacles for the two to overcome.
Everything ends up being too perfect? And for me that's not as interesting. Still read it if you're a huge fan, but don't have high expectations.. You just might be disappointed. View all 9 comments. Apr 13, Zara Khan rated it it was amazing. It has brought back so many memories. Suze , is all grown up Around twenty-three something , She swears a lot , Is bad ass and sarcastic as ever. Jasse Gosh! Jesse Reading this reminded me why I love him Aside from his awesome Spanish looks.
He is sweetness -overload , They is no other way I can describe him. He and Suze compliment each other though their personalities are completely opposite. She is sarcastic , He is sweet She is hot headed while he is all about being calm and cool view spoiler [ He looses his cool only once around Paul and punches him in face.
I totally cheered for him because Paul deserved it! I feel sorry for Paul though he is as infuriating as ever but he is a character I hope who finds happiness. This story is by far the darkest on in the entire series , I had previously thought Twilight was dark but this one deals with an aspect that is very saddening ,Shocking. Yet , is unfortunately very prevalent. However ,It ends with the perfect fairy tale kind of ending I was hoping for Suze and Dr.
Sep 22, Jess rated it it was amazing. Before I cracked open this book I did what naturally got curious about how much other's hated the book in order to measure if I too was going to rate on the hate meter. I'm a curious and I'm a little attached to a bit of negativity, hence my desire to note "problematic" issues before I come across them firsthand.
There was a lot of talk off lost of authenticity, in terms of Suze's voice and Jesse's characterisation. There was boo's for lack of "creativity", in terms of plot a little too much de Before I cracked open this book I did what naturally got curious about how much other's hated the book in order to measure if I too was going to rate on the hate meter. There was boo's for lack of "creativity", in terms of plot a little too much deja vu for y'all huh? There were despondent sighs in response to the fact that this didn't live up to a couple memories people kept of the series in their minds.
To which I thought, interesting. Could it be that I was in for a tonne of crap bulldozing one of my favourite childhood series'? I honestly don't know what people were waiting for then, if I'm quite frank. Because Remembrance, to me, was basically all I ever wanted. It's a rehash of the Mediator series because it's marketed as so.
You get your mystery. You get Suze and Jesse. You get the glorious sarcasm that I relate so dearly to.
There's complaints about Jesse's macho 19 Century and minus patriarchal mindset and how that didn't sit well with many, to which I say what the fuck? That is literally his personality throughout 6 of the original books and that didn't stop shit. Was him being a ghost the only reason that could have been justified for y'all?
Cause guys, the thing about having such attitudes ingrained in you is that sometimes it's hard to shake all of it. You can see how he's adapted and how he tries to lose such habits but man, give the kid a break. It's literally the exact same Jesse from before. It's great that we've all developed awareness and we have different and strong beliefs now, in comparison to back then, but lets not take it out on a character who is written as he was years ago, in a different time to us.
Suze's sarcasm still tops. I cackled so many times throughout this book, I partially lost my voice at work the next morning. If that's not a sign of a winner of a book then I don't know what is. Someone hold me until I'm not exactly sane, right now. I don't understand how I remained ignorant of this news. Oct 27, Chloe Friend marked it as to-read. View 2 comments. Jan 28, Sadie marked it as to-read. I am so excited its unreal. The wait for this book will kill me, but you can't not be completely pumped for this book.
Feb 24, Larissa rated it really liked it Shelves: I have a lot to say about this book, I'm just not ready yet. Dec 28, Rashika is tired rated it it was ok Shelves: There, I said it.
In my history of reading Meg Cabot and I have read a lot of Meg Cabot since she is one of my fav authors , I have never ever been disappointed and here I am. Sad, angry, not satisfied cue Hamilton because that is my life. I practically shoved it down her throat. I watched my window for a month hoping a hottie like Jesse would show up.
That never happened but when I found out there would be a book 7, I was over the moon. Open endings are OK to a certain degree, but this one just completely threw everything we had been told in the waste bin and fed us some other bullshit. The plot is apparently also old news. As you might know from some of my other rants, I detest secret keeping and boy does this book have some major secret keeping.
You know better, you should be more trusting. You could do so much better. There is just something about her that threw me off. My issues with the book aren't just because it was a disappointing sequel but also extend to the fact that Meg Cabot writes fantastic adult novels and this is not up to mark. Take her Heather Wells series for instance. Beautiful, amazing. I expected to bawl and feel all the feels because of nostalgia.
I did feel some feels but mostly just disappointment.
So, if you are dying for this book like I was, should you read it? Honestly, you might find yourself entirely comfortable with the new dynamics. Also meeting some of the other older characters from this series was so much fun.
Note that I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Feb 17, Sara sarawithoutanH rated it really liked it Shelves: It was fun to read a completely new Mediator novel. The characters were older yet retained their personalities, which was good. The haunting in this book was more complex, which I enjoyed. It was a little less formulaic this time around. The only thing that annoys me is how much Suze hides things - she's a terrible communicator.
But that's more of a character flaw than a book flaw. Overall, I really liked this one. The beauty of this series is that I am able to keep my expectations low and have It was fun to read a completely new Mediator novel. The beauty of this series is that I am able to keep my expectations low and have a good time. The writing is decent and the characters are fun. I'm usually not able to suspend judgment while reading, but this series will always have a place in my heart.
I was sad it was over when I finished. Feb 07, Dayse Dantas rated it liked it. Well, the good news is that this was considerably better than the new Princess Diaries, I actually enjoyed myself at parts and didn't really get angry at any points. The bad news is that I don't really like Jesse anymore. Which is totally personal, of course, he didn't get worse or anything, I just realized that his kind of character is not attractive to me anymore, which is precisely one of the perils of books making a "come back".
And I always cherished that memory, and reading this book, being a different person and all, I'm like, "oh. This doesn't really work for me anymore. But that's not really tragic, it's just, you know, not great. Now, for the little things that got me: Like, I would understand it better if it was some religious thing, because I religion is religion and I respect that, but Jesse was clearly OK with killing people, and in the end he did have sex before marriage, so in the end the entire virgin saga was out of gratitude and I don't understand?
Like, specially because he mentions Suze's mother, and what? He thinks she would be offended to find out her daughter who has been in trouble several times was having sex with her fiance? I really don't understand it, guys, I was so confused. Like, he is such a creep and I have no idea what his part in this book was? Like, was I supposed to feel more sympathy for him? Was his behavior supposed to be excused? I just don't understand his part in this narrative at all?
What was he doing there? As far as I remember, Suze didn't get it from anyone, did she? Her mother doesn't have it, and neither did her father. I think? I'm not really sure, but anyway. I'm not sure, is this new book the first of a new series? Because I wish I knew what happened to her in Hollywood. She's always been one of my favorites and I missed her. Even the most puritan YA books have gotten over that, it shouldn't be a problem to see Suze say a few fucks now that she's an adult, specially because that's who she is.
That is incredible and edgy, wow. Other than that, it was nice. If there really is a mediator school now, I'm interested in that. I'd read more books of that, but not from Suze's pov, please, I'm kind of over her.
And that's all I have to say about that. May 04, Sophie rated it really liked it Shelves: I received an Advance Reader Copy via Edelweiss. This in no way impacted on my view. This was my second ever approval via Edelweiss, and the fact that it was a book by one of my favourite authors made it all the more better!

Cabot's The Mediator series has had a special place in my heart since I read them all way back in or something, and when I heard that she would be returning to the world, with a new adult book just like with The Princess Diaries , I was desperate to get my hands on a copy. Remembrance is the first adult edition of the Mediator series, and returns to the somewhat problematic world of Suze Simon. Since she sort of resurrected her ghostly boyfriend, Jesse, they've been together, and are dealing with adult stuff like college, student loans, and jobs.
They recently got engaged, and are planning their wedding. Unfortunately, just as life is becoming perfect for them, a spanner is thrown into the works, namely Paul Slater.
I loved being back in Suze's head again! She was exactly as I remembered her, and it made me feel so nostalgic. She's still the sassy, feisty Suze we all know and love.
Her being able to see dead people, and the problems that brings still bothers her, though she wants to do as much as she can to help the ghostly spirits, especially when this one is a little kid. I enjoyed the plot and mystery surrounding the ghost, Lucia, and why she is haunting the student.
That whole arc was very enjoyable, especially when it came out in little drips and drabs - it wasn't a whole info dump on the whole situation. However, there were problems in this book. Jesse, as swoony as he is, and I will always love him, was a little too much. Even though he knew how bad ass Suze is, he still wanted to protect her and keep her wrapped up in cotton wool. No, she has to deal with Lucia and all that herself. Other than that, their relationship was perfect, and I loved the ending of the book so much!
Secondly, why on earth did Paul Slater have to come back? He basically blackmails Suze and tries to force her into cheating on Jesse just so he won't go all demon on everyone. Paul knows Suze would never be with him of her own volition, but that doesn't bother him.
Well, it bothered me, and was the main reason why the rating is only a 4. I know the book needed some angst, but the whole cheating situation really got to me. Even though there were these issues, I still enjoyed the book so much! I will always love this series, and I'm really glad Cabot decided to return to it.
The characters except Paul were as lovely as they always had been, and I was hooked with the various story arcs playing out. I'm guessing there probably won't be an eighth instalment, with how it ended, but I would definitely read it if there was.
I'd recommend the book to those who loved the original series, and I hope the little bits I didn't like won't put you off. I knew Jake and Dave had it in them, but even Brad?
I won the lottery. And CeeCee and Adam? The same loving, supporting friends. Father Dominic? Even the ghost busting was turned to the next level.
The stories were harder and sadder. The villains ages above the crimes everyone in the previous books ever committed. Which made it easy for me to invest myself in the mystery and not only in the excitement of seeing my old pals.
Namely Jesse. Jesse who has been my boyfriend for longer than half my life. At school the next day, Suze interrogates Becca, who admits that Lucia was murdered by Jimmy Delgado, a handyman at their previous school, who had molested her; she also reports narrowly avoiding abuse by Father Francisco, the school principal. Suze and Jesse track down Jimmy, and she confronts him with Paul while on their date; he shoots himself, but Suze finds his child abuse files and client list, which includes Father Francisco.
They are intercepted by Jesse at dinner, and Paul reveals their deal, causing him to walk out. With her knowledge of the triplets' parentage, Suze blackmails Paul into giving her the house. Outside, she finds Jesse, who is hurt at all the secrets Suze has kept from him, but forgives her. As they are about to make up, Paul comes out to mock them once more; Jesse punches him and is arrested for assault. That night, Suze sees Lucia, who thanks her and moves on to her afterlife.
She gives Delgado's files to CeeCee and visits a greatly-improved Becca the next day; when she leaves the Walters' mansion, she finds Jesse with the keys to the house. They drive there, and make love for the first time in Suze's old bedroom, after which Jesse reveals he has received a grant allowing him to start his own medical practice.
