As I said when I first started this website, two very long years ago: “I do not read vampire romances, nor werewolf romances, nor hobbit romances, nor any other romances“. However, I lived through reading and reviewing the entire Twilight Saga. And as such things go, it only follows that I must now experiment on the second item on my list of things I do not read: werewolves.
I discovered Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater when it was given to me at a convention, but never opened it. I was told by Lauren of TheCrookedShelf.com and the Official Twilight Facebook to read it, though I never did, until many months later when I finally opened the book to see what the beginning was like. I knew full well that I didn’t have time to read anything nor get involved in another fandom: and yet I was sucked in before the second chapter ended. Thus, I relented, and decided I would read the rest, and blog my experience at SHIVERGUY.COM.
Shiver has been called the Twilight for werewolf lovers, so if you were a fan of Twilight and TwilightGuy.com, you’ll almost certainly enjoy reading along with me. I haven’t read the book, so I can’t honestly say if I’m a fan or not. But the opening was good enough for me to set up a new website… and that takes a lot 😀
This website will be my video thoughts on reading the book, and possibly continuing on to the sequels. Unlike TwilightGuy.com, the reviews there will be done via videos posted once / twice a week with my thoughts on a few chapters at a time (as Maggie’s chapters run shorter and thus I can read a lot at one time).
NOTE: I WILL NOT BE ENDING TWILIGHTGUY.COM. I will STILL keep up with this website as we get ready for the Eclipse and Breaking Dawn movies!
To follow along as I read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, visit The Books page or your local bookstore to buy it.
