My thoughts on Meg Cabot (Meg-A Readers Blog Hop)

If you would like to know more about the Meg-A Readers Blog Hop zip on over to The Romance Bookie

One of the things that I love about Meg Cabot is the diversity of her writing.

  • teenagers saving the presidents
  • girls getting struck by lightning and turning into a missing-person beacon
  • tween novels
  • adult mysteries about ex-pop-stars solving murders
  • adults vampire novels
  • and more recently venturing into the Underworld
And many more. I mean, sheesh, this lady has her fingers in a whole lot of fictional pies and she is still producing fabby stories - something that ALL of her fans are no doubt very glad about. 

One thing that I have come to LOVE about Meg Cabot's work - more so now than when I was a teen - is her humor. Sometimes dry, sometimes sarcastic, sometimes self-depreciating and pointed at our main characters own expense But hilarious non the less. 

And her heroines are not perfect. They all heave their flaws which - once again - I couldn't really appreciate as a teen, but now it seems to make the characters that much more likable. 

I don't know if it is the same with everyone else but when I was younger I wanted to read about 'perfect' characters. The flaws in characters that I now view as making them more human and relate-able used to set my teeth on edge not to long ago.

I do not know what has prompted this change in my view. I do not know if my personal experiences have made be more tolerant of others - fictional or otherwise. Whatever led to the change though I am glad! :)

  3. I don't know if it's their flaws or great senses of humor or likeability or what but there is something about Meg Cabot characters that make them seem so REAL to me. More so than any other books I read. I always feel like I'm hanging out with close friends and family when I read her books. Yay Meg!
