Have you ever had that one author who never let you down? That one author who you can rely on to deliver exactly what you need almost always (because I’m a realist, everyone lets you down sometimes)?
Recently, Meg Cabot has been that author for me. I turn to her when my mind needs a breather … and a good laugh.
I’ve been pushing really hard with my school work since my wifi has been having issues and I really needed a breather from all the history texts I’ve been reading throughout the weekend.
And Cabot has done just that with The Boy Next Door.
I’ve been itching to read an epistolary novel and read I’ll Always Write Back by Caitlin Alifrenka a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed it, but it was based on real life experiences and a little heavier than what I was look for.
So I continued my search for epistolary stories when Meg Cabot popped up.
And I just had to give it a go.
I mean, this was the author that made me laugh through almost all of the Princess Diaries series (except book nine, which I skipped entirely because you know why!). I figured she’d give me what I needed.
And I’m not disappointed!
One hundred and fourteen pages into the story and I’be laughed through most of it. Okay, okay. I’ve smiled through most of it and laughed, hard–like literally LoL’d, a few times.
She never fails to deliver a story that’s lighthearted with touches of seriousness, when called for.
I love it.
Thank you, Meg Cabot, for sticking to what you do best!
