On My Bedside

Allright y’all, brace yourselves as I divulge my true literary prowess…

… let me introduce you to Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.

I say “introduce” because unless you have a preteen daughter, often peruse the latest Scholastic book offerings or have a fabulous bestie E with unrivaled taste in juicy, teenage drama, I am quite certain you have not (and will not) come across this book.

That being said, I literally devoured the nearly four hundred paged book, gobbling up the love story of human girl and werewolf boy. Given my utter adoration of the Twilight series, the fact that I loved the reverse story (you know, where the lupine gets the girl rather than the bloodsucker) should be of no great surprise.

So, if you’re looking for a easy summertime book to lose yourself in for a night (yes, folks, wrapped this one up in a day) give it a read.  I’m hoping to score the sequel, Linger, at the library this afternoon :-)

Thanks again, bestie E, for the loan. You’ve never lent me a book that I didn’t enjoy.
