I wasn't the world's biggest fan of Shiver. I liked it okay, but not nearly as much as I'd wanted to, and the cardboard nature of a number of the characters led me to be a little leery of Stiefvater's writing. That said, I had so many people tell me I will love The Scorpio Races that when I saw a giveaway for it awhile back, I entered it and said to myself, "If I'm meant to like this book and give Steifvater another try, the Universe will tell me so by letting me win." Because I'm weird like that.
But I did win. And then the synopsis for The Raven Boys came out, and it sounds awesome. So now I'm thinking the Universe is trying to prove me wrong. So somehow, despite myself, I find myself eagerly anticipating this book...
How 'bout you?
