There was an article in USA Today last week mentioning The Mediator!

This week's Throwback Thursday post is all about the undead, the spirits, the ghosts and ghouls … oh, and YA romance, of course! Happy Early Halloween!

Shadowland (Mediator book one) by Meg Cabot

This is a favorite at my house. My mother, my sister and I love Meg Cabot, and her YA Mediator series is both hilarious and romantic. The basic plot is that Suze is a mediator dealing with the living and the dead, and they can be annoying as heck...except, of course, for Jesse, the superhot ghost haunting her. Each book in the series involves Suze solving/creating problems of both the high school and ghostly variety. It's the best series if you are looking for some light fun, no love triangles (not really) and a seriously awesome HEA

A couple of weeks ago, I made a trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea to take some photos of Mediator locations. I've been wanting to do this for years, since I live in northern California, but was never able to plan out a trip. I wasn't able to make it everywhere I wanted to go, but I did get some good shots of the mission and the school!

My only regret with this trip is that the mission was pretty much the only Mediator location I got to see (and I didn't even get all of it). I went over with a family member who literally only wanted to get lunch, swing by the mission for 10 minutes, and go home again. That's why I missed that other courtyard—I didn't even get a chance to look at the map while we were there. I really hope I'll be able to go over to Carmel again sometime soon and can complete the location tour!

Update, Feb. 2014: I don't know when I'll get another chance to go to Carmel again, since I moved out of state less than a month after my trip. But if I ever can make it back down there, I'll make a point of checking out the big courtyard and getting more pictures of Mediator locations!

Earlier this year, the Things Meg Cabot's Characters Say opened up on Tumblr. This blog basically serves as Meg's official Tumblr account, but it just posts graphics with quotes from Meg's various books on them. Here are all the Mediator quotes that have appeared so far:

Personally, most of these aren't really my favorite Mediator quotes, but they're still fun to see. What about you guys? Have any of your favorite quotes been featured?

In February, Meg posted several mini "stories" on her blog in which heroines of her various books picked their favorite Oscar nominees. My favorite, of course, was Suze's story:

Seriously? You want to know which Oscar pick I liked best this year? I can tell you which one bored the crap out of me: Life of Pi. My boyfriend Jesse dragged me to see it without telling me what it's about. It turns out it's about some guy trapped in a lifeboat with a tiger.

Jesse says it's an allegory about God or religion or something and he really appreciated it after having spent two hundred years being trapped as a ghost in my house.

I said, "Really, Jesse? Do I look like a tiger to you? Have I ever eaten a zebra? Listen, when I want to spend my hard-earned entertainment dollars on an allegory, I'll go to Disneyland and take a ride on Space Mountain. In the meantime, shut up and kiss me."

So he did.

Jesse can pick out the movie anytime if that's what's going to happen. But otherwise, no more movies about anyone trapped in a lifeboat with anything.

You can read the rest of the stories here!
