Over break I was mentally on vacation… and that was even before I had the flu! So some nice light reading was exactly what the doctor ordered and the delightful Waverly Bryson series by Maria Murnane did not disappoint. Sure, there were a few of the cliche problems with chick-lit – a little insta-love and a heroine with a slightly man-dependent ego – but overall Waverly was very relatable and a lot of fun. She was kind of like a Meg Cabot character for adults, although without the strange quirk each of Meg’s characters seem to have. She did however have the quality I like most about Meg’s characters – she seemed real and she seemed like someone I might be friends with.
