I actually haven’t read any books this month. For those of you who may be unaware, I have started full time online college in July and I have been so busy with that it doesn’t leave a lot of free time to myself. I thought that I would share instead the book that I am currently reading on audible and my thoughts on it at this time. I have been enjoying listening to an audio book while walking on my manual treadmill. I downloaded the Audible app to my phone (which apparently my SOS will no longer be updated, so I need to buy a new phone) and I can hit on the app to listen to where I left off the last time I was exercising.
After combing through my to read shelf on goodreads, I remembered that I hadn’t finished reading this Meg Cabot series yet. I also downloaded two more books, before putting my Audible subscription on a 90 day hold. It is already August and I am still working on my first book. I knew that the other two were going to take me some time to read as well. I am halfway through this book and it is good. Not as good as when I was reading it in my teens, but decent. The narrator is SO annoying though. Her voice irks me and it is nothing like I imaged Em to sound like. Where is the NY accent?! Why is she southern?! Makes zero sense. I’m hoping to finish this by the end of August, so I can give you guys a proper review. I do highly recommend Audible though. I got two free books through my Amazon account. Most books are worth more than the 14.99, so it is well worth it.

This was never meg Cabot’s best series if you ask me. The princess diaries, 1-800 where r u, and mediator are all much better. A lot of the standalone books like pants on fire are better too. I feel like she’s hit her stride again with her newer books. But this series and the Greek myth one I’m in the middle of don’t seem as good to me.
Yeah, this book seemed so much better when I was in high school, which is when I read the Greek Myth one. No, Em seems whiny and not like she’s actually 17. IDK. I’m glad I’m finishing this book, but the whole time, I’m thinking that the reason behind the Quirks was obvious!
Yea, i honestly don’t remember much about the last airhead book other than there being a really crazy ending. it is not as funny as her other books can be, which i’ve always felt was one of her strong suits as an author.
YES! I love her humor. This last book is too whiny. I think it should have just been two books instead of three tbh.
i think the book wraps up well but i really can’t remember how book 2 ended. i read it when it first came out so probably 2009 or 10. quite a while ago!
Book 2 ended with Em leaving with Brandon Stark after finding Nikki still alive at the doctor’s house. Oh, and telling Christopher she doesn’t love him anymore.
I guess that’s a big cliffhanger though.
