  1. I have read both Shiver and Insurgent and really loved them! But I feel like Insurgent has a lot more going on story wise than Shiver did!

  2. I LOVED Shiver and am anxiously awaiting INSURGENT because I loved its prequel. I can't wait to get my hands on WHISPERS AT MOONRISE because I loved the prior 3 books in the series as well!

  3. The only one I've read is Insurgent, but it was AMAZING. So, I would say Insurgent.

  4. Shiver! I think one aspect that makes it so special is it was one of the first modern YA paranormals to present the concept of teen werewolves in such a lovely & imaginative way. I was captivated from the get-go! I think, all in all, that Shiver is more about love than anything else <3

  5. I vote for Insurgent. I really love the cover and the series. I would like to read the other two also but my vote is for Insurgent.

  6. I personally didn't really care for Divergent (and I haven't read Insurgent yet) or Shiver (though I can see their appeal to other readers), so I'll have to throw my vote in for Born at Midnight. I haven't read it yet, but it can't be too bad. :-)

  7. CONGRATS to the winner!

  8. Honestly I haven't read any of these yet, but I did love Divergent so I will have to go with Insurgent :)
