Blogspiration (1): I’m Inspired by Shadowfever!

Posted on 02/26/2012 in Book Review / 14 Comments

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author’s choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.


“One day you do meet a man who kisses you and you can’t breathe around it and you realize you don’t need air. Oxygen is trivial. Desire makes life happen. Makes it matter. Makes everything worth it. Desire is life. Hunger to see the next sunrise or sunset. To touch the one you love. To try again.”

The entire Fever series by Karen Moning inspires me. I bet you all are tired of hearing about how awesome it is, because you’ve either read it for yourself, or you’ve heard about it so damn much you feel like you already know the story. But you DON’T. Shadowfever in particular inspires me because Mac finally owns up to who she needs to be. She’s honest with herself and…just IS. No more whining about how unfair life can be; she lives it as she was meant to. She finds a way to make her happiness.

What book inspires you?

The following two tabs change content below.
Jennifer is both a book nerd and professional photographer. That means she lives in the fantasy world all the time, whether of her making, or someone else's. She collects books like the Duggar family collects kids, and began waiting for her Hogwarts letter at the tender age of 33.

  1. Jennifer! Jennifer! Jennifer! I LOVE IT! Eeee, it helps that I’m a *teensy* bit obsessed with the series at the moment, BUT SERIOUSLY! I love seeing Mac grow over the crouse of the series so far. Even when it’s reluctant, and she’s a pain in the arse, and I want to smack her around some, I LOVE IT. And I can’t wait to read this! *flails* EEEEEEEEEE!

    • Eee, I love that you are obsessed! I am STILL obsessed! It’s my fav series of all time (besides Belgariad and Mallorean…hmmm, tough decision!).

      • EEEEEEEEEEEEE! *jumps at you* BELGARIAD AND MALLOREAN! I LOSE IT WHENEVER I SEE SOMEONE MENTION THEM! *HUGS* Hehe, I know we’ve spoken about them before, but it doesn’t get any less awesome. Ack. Seriously. I am SO. OBSESSED. I’m reading Dreamfever at the moment, and it’s so SO amazing and awful and dark and wonderful and FRUSTRATING. I, uh… may have flicked ahead to Shadowfever… because I kind of know about Barrons in the end of this one, and I’m like ‘NOOOOOOOOOOOO!’ and I had to know when he showed up again >___<

    great post! Gosh every time I see that quote it just gives me the goosebumps! I love this series! Totally understand your obsession. Agree with Sarah! Mac got on my nerves but it was great to see her grow into the person she is. Ning @ Reading by Kindle Fire

  3. Ok…I’ve been out of the loop! I’ve never heard of this series until now and now that I’ve read your little snippet I feel like that needs to change! ASAP!!! And I love female protags who come into their own. And when they end up being fierce as hell? Well, I love that even more!! Thank you for sharing!!
