Kidlit 3: Meg Cabot

Blogathon 2006

Meg Cabot is one of my favorite authors writing today. She writes for both teens and adults (in addition to a great blog). I've loved every book of hers that I've read so far, although Avalon High, pictured above, is my favorite. It's about a teen girl, the daughter of medievalists, who starts attending a new high school and gets mixed up in a contemporary Arthurian saga. SO much fun!

Cabot is perhaps best known for her Princess Diaries series, and she has several other young adult series and standalones as well - I'm currently reading her new YA book, How to Be Popular. Her adult books are fun as well. She writes in many different genres, but has a very distinctive voice throughout. Her books are fluffy, but not TOO fluffy - there's definite substance there as well.

You're getting the timing down really well. That's fantastic!

Thanks for the recommendation. I liked the first two Princess Diary books, but hadn't read any of her other stuff. Maybe I'll check one out the next time I'm at the library.

Sounds good. I haven't read any of her books but I'm tempted.
