Must Read Book of the Week!

03/17 - This is Last Thursday's Post. I'm  not going to do a short story for Last Friday. I didn't get a chance to finish it and I have to work on it ASAP.

Shiver
By: Maggie Stiefvater
And the I opened my eyes and it was just Grace and me - nothing anywhere but Grace and me - she pressing her lips together as though she were keeping m kiss inside her; and me holding this moment that was as fragile as a bird in my hands. 

Well I was planning on putting a picture of this book for all my fellow bloggers to see but my picture doesn't want to work right so this will have to do. This book I picked up at the Library a few weeks back because I thought it sounded interesting. So I started to read it and was like wow, this is so different from all the vampire/werewolves books I've read so far. Okay this is the first werewolf boo I have read other than the Twilight series. Edward could of been so much hotter but if I had to choose between Jacob or Edward in the movie, I would have picked Jacob. He's hot. Anyway, that's not the point. The point is that the author, Maggie Stiefvater took a completely different approach to this is werewolf thing. I mean it's so different from all the other tales, it's original. It's awesome because it's not like all the others.

The story revolves around Seth and Grace. Grace is the girl who is always outside, sitting on a swing reading a book, and ignoring her family's issues. Seth is the wolf in the winter watching Grace from the safety of the woods and the boy in the summer who wants nothing more than for her to notice him. The story is about finding romance, coming of age, accepting difference when the odds are against you, and a mystery of the wolves of Mercy Falls.Like the main character, Grace, I have a odd fascination with wolves. I think they are beautiful majestic creatures.

I would recommend this book to all of my friends. It's a really good read stating the fact that I'm only half way through the book but it's good nonetheless. Next time your at the library or the bookstore, take a gander and pick it up. I think you'll really like it.

Happy Reading!
