|If you aren't already a Maggie Stiefvater fan, than you'd better hop to it because Maggie's books are phenomenal. They aren't your typical paranormal/romance books. |
The female characters are strong, the writing almost lyrical, and the setting somehow moody without being too angsty. Maggie's frist book was Lament: the faerie queen's deception, which I read in about a day. The sequel, Ballad: a gathering of faerie, soon followed.
But Maggie's true success started with Shiver, which was release in August and talked about practically non-stop in the YA book community. I took Shiver with me when I was vacationing at the beach and had to force myself to put it down and, you know, do some vacationing!
I highly recommend all of her books to Twilight fans suffering from withdrawal, as well as fans of anything to do with faeries/fairies/fae, celtic mythology, and just really well-crafted stories.
