The Author: Meg Cabot's New Books!

I knew Meg Cabot a long time ago before The Princess Diaries movie was released and became one of the blockbuster movie. I love her writing after I read All American Girl, Ready or Not, and Teen Idol. The Indonesian version, of course...:)

The Mediator series (5 of 6 books) is the latest Meg's novel that I read, and again, she gives me an awesome experience by reading them. I promise myself to read all of her works....:) And, I am happy for her as a productive writer. Bravo!

These two are her latest books that is expected to come out this year.

1. Underworld (Abandon trilogy, #2) --- expected to be released at 8 May 2012

— Book Two: Underworld —

Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible
when someone there wants you back.
Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead. Not this time.
But she’s been taken by John Hayden, lord of the Underworld, to the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey. 
John claims it’s for her own safety, to protect her from the Furies who yearn for vengeance against him. But John may have reasons of his own for wanting to keep Pierce close… 
And soon Pierce learns that while she might be safe from the wrath of the Furies in the Underworld, the people she loves back on earth are not. Can she convince John to release her in order to save the life of someone in her family? Or will the price he asks her to pay for her freedom turn out to be too high?
Free excerpts (Chapter 1+2)
2. Size 12 and Ready to Rock (Heather Wells Mystery, #4) --- expected to be released at 10 July 2012

Summer break . . . and the livin' ain't easy

Just because the students at New York College have flown the coop doesn't mean assistant residence hall director Heather Wells can relax. Fischer Hall is busier than ever, filled with squealing thirteen- and fourteen-year-old girls attending the first ever Tania Trace Teen Rock Camp, hosted by pop sensation Tania Trace herself--who just happens to be newly married to Heather's ex-boyfriend, heartthrob Jordan Cartwright. But the real headache begins when the producer of a reality TV show starring Tania winds up dead . . . and it's clear that the star was the intended victim.

Grant Cartwright, head of Cartwright Records, wants to keep his daughter-in-law (and his highest-earning performer) alive. So he hires his oldest son, black sheep of the family and private investigator Cooper Cartwright--who just happens to be Heather's "new" fiancE. Heather should leave the detecting to Cooper. But with a dorm full of hysterical mini-divas-in-training, she can't help but get involved. And after Tania shares a really shocking secret with her, "this" reality suddenly becomes more dangerously real than anyone ever anticipated.
