Confession: I have never read a book by Maggie Stiefvater. I know that makes me lose MAJOR YA reader street cred.
Luckily, I have the entire Shiver series at home. As we all know, summer is a time for accomplishing things and doing lots of reading. And if you are a lucky little bastard still in school, a time of VACATION. Alas, I am not in school but I think I can make some time in my summer to read all three Mercy Falls books.
Sidebar: The main reason I want to read these is because of Carla’s reaction to meeting Maggie. Clearly, her books have GOT to be good to get a reaction like that.
No longer will I be the kid at the lunch table with the banana while everyone else is eating a Snack Pack. That’s right, I’m going to gain some YA street cred by reading these books!
You can join me in my quest for fitting in with everyone else and read the Shiver series over the summer too. I don’t have any hard and fast rules for this. Hell, you can even already be the snack pack kid and just re-read these books!
I plan on reading them all by July 30th the latest. But hopefully by the July 12 release date of Forever.
Ya’ll let’s begin Shiver Summer!
