Shiver from a dude’s perspective

26 Nov

So, every once in a while I come across a book review that just makes me happy. You know, it’s well-written, funny and – of course – gushes about a book I love.

It’s no secret that I’m a bit obsessed with The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. And most people that I know who read Shiver and Linger fall in love with both books.  The trilogy is beautifully written with a swoon worthy male lead and an unbelievably romantic love story at the center.  Definitely a chick book.

Which is why I was thrilled beyond to read October Daniels’ review of Shiver. Because October? Yeah, he’s a dude. A masculine dude. And he loved the book. And I loved his review.

So, I’m doing something I’ve never done before: I’m linking (with permission of course) to someone else’s review. Please go read it. It’s funny and touching and oh, his first review. Seriously. So go show him some love. But not too much gushing and girly-ness: he is a dude, after all.

October Daniels’ awesome review of Shiver.
