Did you hear the one about the girl who walks into a bar and catches her live-in lover kissing someone else? No? You’re the only one in town who missed it. Luckily Alec is there to wrap me up in strong arms and carry me out the door before things get too ugly. And that’s not all Alec is good at. Our unexpected chemistry makes him the perfect rebound guy.

Meg Cabot is the New York Times best-selling author of The Princess Diaries series. Susannah Simon is a teenager who can see ghosts. As a bridge between the living and the dead, she gets called on to help ghosts take care of unfinished business. After she and her mother move from New York City to sunny California, Suze meets the sexiest boy she's ever seen, too bad he's a ghost, too.

I'm really enjoying listening to these stories. Johanna Parker is very enjoyable to listen to. The Mediator series is very different from other books and I can't tell where its going to go.

What did you like best about this story?

The uniqueness.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Of course. I finished it in 2 days.

Any additional comments?

Cannot get enough of Meg Cabot's books!!!

Where does Princess in Pink rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love all the books in these series. Mia just can't help herself with the crazy girl logic.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clea Lewis?

I would LOVE to have Anne Hathaway keep narrating these books. Clea Lewis just made Mia so incredibly whiny and stupid.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would but the narrator is just horrible. I only kept listening cause I love the Princess Diaries Series.

Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper. But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them. Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I always recommend anything by Meg Cabot. Her books are so easy to get into. This series was very entertaining.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Meena is a great character. She hates how everyone is becoming obsessed with vampires (which is so true in real life). She wants to have nothing to do with them but they start hitting her in every part of her life.

Have you listened to any of Emily Bauer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard anything by Emily before but she was very enjoyable to listen to.

Meena Harper has a special gift, but it’s only now that anyone’s ever appreciated it. The Palatine Guard—a powerful secret demon-hunting unit of the Vatican—has hired her to work at their new branch in Lower Manhattan. With Meena’s ability to predict how everyone she meets will die, the Palatine finally has a chance against the undead.

I love all of Meg Cabots books. This series was much different than the rest of her series which made it so much more interesting. Even though I read the book right after it came out hearing it makes it come to life.

Princess Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo may seem like she's the luckiest girl ever. She's a princess, for starters. And while she's no supermodel, mirrors do not crack at her reflection. Best of all, she finally has a boyfriend. However, all she wants is a little peace and quiet...and a certain someone else to be her boyfriend. For Mia, being a princess in love is not the fairy-tale it's supposed to be...or is it?

Never before has the world seen such a princess. Nor have her own subjects, for that matter. Mia's royal introduction to Genovia has mixed results: while her fashion sense is widely applauded, her position on the installation of public parking meters is met with resistance.

Would you consider the audio edition of Princess in Waiting to be better than the print version?

I love listening to audio books. Its like they bring the story to life. Watching a movie but better.

What other book might you compare Princess in Waiting to and why?

The rest of the Princess Diaries series.

Would you be willing to try another one of Clea Lewis’s performances?

Her voice is so annoying. After having Anne Hathaway for the first 3 books listening to her voice is like nails on the chalkboard. I don't know if I can take much more of it.
