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!

Glad to hear you enjoyed Shiver and Linger! They are favorites of mine for sure. Maggie has such a graceful writing style. It's really beautiful ^-^
My recent post Today's Answer (50) Special Top Ten Edition
I've been reading just bits of Forever each day because I can't handle it ending. CANNOT HANDLE IT!
And we can't go Misery on here cuz she's got some fairie writing to do still, dangit!
I am all over the public library on this one – was on the hold list and was the first reader for Linger! So try that and save your pennies!
And I'm loving him even more in Forever right now! What a crazy dude to figure out, right??? I'll have to check out the Cole-splosion!
Graceful is a PERFECT word! I think I might have to steal it for the Forever post next week. Thank you for commenting!
LMAO!! Are you mad about that one too?
LOLZ! I must be the only one who doesn't care. ;P
Okey doke… I shall tell you the exact same thing I told Cutie (cuz I wrote the rest of it and am awesome that way)
Ok… this is what happens.
The big mighty antler king prances around all sexy and does some really cool stuff. The fairies go around and get out of the never never but they get sucked back in cuz that bagpipe dude is cool and magical.
A love affair happens with him and his fairy chick (I'm awesome with names) and we pretty much forget about the girl from the first book cuz she bugged me.
A huntress comes along and traps the antler king but in the end they fall in love and bambi is born.
The end 😉
But awesome! We can go all MISERY! Ok.. you live in a colder climate so we;ll meet there. Now, we just need a pig, a slick road, and a bed with rope 😉 MUHAHAHAHS!
YOu know, I read this book once where this chick really wanted to enjoy this book this dude wrote so she would only let herself read like 3 pages a day. I don't think I could do it!! Could you?
[…] won’t follow… Another series which I loved but ended up dropping was *cringe* the Shiver series by Maggy Stiefvater – I love this author, I love her writing but, I never ended up […]
