Ok… is there anyone around?
Well, look dummy! I can’t see if there’s anyone near 😉
Ok… are you ready for this?
No, seriously, are you? Cuz we’re only saying this once.
WE FREAKING ADORE THESE BOOKS!!!!!!
Oh snaps! Did we hurt your ear? We iz sorry 😉
So, its pretty much a girl meets boy, boy wants girl, girl wants boy more, bow wow wow yippy yo yippy yay kinda story… but done RIGHT!! There’s no lip gloss (and if there is I guess my brain refused to process the word because the story overrode that with its awesomeness) and the way the story is told is just pure brilliance.
I read this book over a year ago and I remember squeeing to my best friend about it. She kept laughing at me. She said, “Greta, you’re funny. Last year you wanted to get bit by a vampire and now you want to get bit by a wolf.”
Well, it’s been over a year later and I STILL want to get bit by a wolf.
And I’ll say it folks… I totally dug this book way more than Twilight.
I don’t know if it was the poetry, or maybe the fact that Sam could play the guitar and formed song lyrics in his head, or maybe that it was more on my level, But this story spoke to me. It was all I could think about until Linger came out. And oh snapples!! When that book came out then I squeed even more 😉 But we’ll let Kristen squee about that part.
Shiver is a clever book, it’s original, and it’s a super duper squee! If you are looking for something a bit more modern that breaks away from the Jane Austin fantasy girls then I sooo recommend this book to ya. You’ll be so happy I did that maybe you’ll buy me a Thank You gift. (note: my favorite color is blue, if that helps you.)
So – get going and catch up on these books! Forever, the final book in the series comes out on July 12th! And we’ll be reviewing it together next week! Squeeeeee!
And for even more Shiver/Linger/Forever love – check out Greta over at Paranormal Wasteland!
