The Character Connection

The Character Connection is hosted by Jen over at The Introverted Reader.
It's all about posting about the characters we love or the ones that made a big impression on us.

This weeks favorite character crush is Sam from the absolutely gorgeous book Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I am in love with Maggie's writing - as well as a few of her characters. But we'll save the others for another post...
Today it's all about Sam. He is the kind of guy that you just can't help but have a crush on. Where was this kind of guy when I was a teen? Once again, I find myself crushing on the guy with the tortured past, the ones that need love but think they don't deserve it.
There is something achingly familiar about Sam. Grace has met him before, but when she finds out where and how, she is pulled in to a world she didn't know existed.
I highly recommend reading this book. The next in the series, Linger, is due out this July. This is the book that I am most anticipating so far this year! So, if you haven't already, pick this one up and fall in love...


  1. Great pick! I really liked Sam and I can't wait to read Linger.

  2. Yes Sam is so dreamy. Add to the sensitive reading guy the wolfish element and I just swoon. Spoiler*** The bedroom scene where he growls. That set my heart on fire LOL****

  3. I still haven't read this! It took my library system forever to get it in, and I'm pretty sure my local branch doesn't have it at all. I really need to request it soon.
