Oh, Janie.  I think if you knew how many unread books I have, you'd cry. :)


I wasn't going to read Shiver at first because I didn't want to spend money for it but then I found out I could get the ebook from the library. I was pleasantly surprised :)  I guess it's one of those "don't judge a book by its cover" ...literally.  I felt this way about Beautiful Creatures too.

I expected it to be more "predictable". Your basic YA fiction formula, ya know? I had actually put it down midway, but picked it back up just so I could add another book to my totally. Right about then, the story took some twists I was expecting and I was hooked til the end!


If you get a chance, try Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce - it's a sort of Red Riding Hood story where the wolf is a werewolf; it's also YA. I read it as a review copy for my library, so I didn't have the stunning cover, but it's well written and fast paced.

I loved Shiver, but I also don't ever have to read with the filter of kids, if that makes sense. I really don't think I'd recommend most of the YA stuff I read to Mia or my other nieces (once they're older).

I absolutely love Maggie Stiefvater's style.


I loved Shiver! Maggie Stiefvater is now one of my fave authors (I read Lament too about faeries)

I know what you mean about the pre-marital sex. Even though these are categorized YA - I definitely think it's for older people.
