Refer A Book Weekend 6/12/09

Rules of Refer A Book Weekend: To play all you have to do is recommend a book that you liked and post in the comments. Tell me why you liked the book or link to your review. I will pick a recommendation, then add it to my TBR pile and the person who recommended the book will get to win a book from this Pile of Free Books that I reviewed.I usually post the Refer A Book Weekend post at 12pm EST after I am done work. Each week I will post a new post for you to comment in. The winner will not be picked until Monday so you have the weekend to recommend.


Hint: Can't really think of a subject in particular that I am interested in the moment. Give me Anything.

I would like to recommend "B as in Beauty" by by Alberto Ferreras! IT wasn't anything like I expected! It was a fun book with a great theme threading through it! I've spoken to the author- he is on twitter- and asked him to write more about this character and others in the book! So time will tell!!! Thanks @susieqtpie on twitter

Hi, I recommend Purple Hibiscus by an award winning Nigerian author, whose book i have reviewed on my blog, www.bookbirddog.blogspot.com

The novel features a 15 year old girl in Nigeria who tries to make sense of her father's strict home and religious rules while being exposed to another world by her aunt, a university professor.

I'd like to recommend Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. Here's a blurb on the book :

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

I haven't read this one yet but I have friends who have and they told me that if I only read one book this year this is the one. Here's the review up at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Shiver-Maggie-Stiefvater/dp/0545123267/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1244907659&sr=1-1

The catch is the book is only released in August.
