The Bride Wore Size 12

The Bride Wore Size 12 is an adult contemporary mystery humor novel by Meg Cabot – and the fifth book in the Heather Wells series.

To fully enjoy the series in order read the books as such:

Size 12 is Not Fat
Size 14 is Not Fat Either
Big Boned
Size 12 and Ready to Rock
The Bride Wore Size 12


Got it? Now, if you haven’t read books one through four yet – don’t read this review! It’ll contain spoilers of the earlier books!!!

Established Heather Wells fans, read on:

Preparing for incoming freshman at New York College as the assistant director of Fischer Residence Hall – a.k.a. Death Dorm – is almost as exhausting as planning a wedding at the Plaza.

Heather wants nothing more than for everything to go smoothly.

Then an attractive junior turns up dead in her room.

Tragic? Absolutely.

Murder? Heather certainly hopes not.

Yet Heather’s rather skilled observational talents and nose for trouble is starting to wonder…

In the meantime, Heather’s mother shows up - the mother who stole all her money and hasn’t visited Heather for years.

Heather really doesn’t have time for this.

After all, with her luck, she’s going to be seeing wedding bullets instead of wedding bells…

The Bride Wore Size 12 was a lot of fun, as this series always is!

I have to say that the later books in the series don’t seem QUITE as perky, fun and humorous as the earlier books – but they are still all of those things.

In the same vein, Cooper – Heather’s hunky P.I. fiancé – is still hot, but doesn’t feel as… real?... as the first books.

I can’t put my finger on it, but it just seems that as good as The Bride Wore Size 12 was, the earlier books in the Heather Wells series were even better.

Don’t get me wrong, though, people!!!

The Bride Wore Size 12 provided plenty of chuckles and an entertaining, fast-paced, surprising mystery.

Plus, I absolutely LOVED the tie-in to Meg Cabot’s Queen of Babble when Lizzie Nichols shows up near the end. What fun!!!

I’m not sure if this is the last Heather Wells book – I would love more – but if it is… well, it’s a happy, satisfying end.

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…
