Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Bitten - Kelley Armstrong More than just your typical snarky heroine mystery-solving action babe book, [b:Bitten|11918|Bitten (Women of the Otherworld, #1)|Kelley Armstrong|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1306101770s/11918.jpg|2606334] has emotional depth and really well-developed characters that makes it so much more.

After reading this as well as Clay's story in [b:Men of the Otherworld|3422075|Men of the Otherworld (Otherworld Stories, #1)|Kelley Armstrong|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320501705s/3422075.jpg|2860439], and Clay and Elena's story in [b:Tales of the Otherworld|6539105|Tales of the Otherworld (Otherworld Stories, #II)|Kelley Armstrong|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1258763216s/6539105.jpg|6731327], I am a total Clelena shipper. If you look up "Tumultuous Love Story" in the dictionary, they will be there.

Plus, it takes a fabulous writer for me to actually highly enjoy all the wolf-POV scenes. I mean, I'm not really an animal person - I actually haven't been able to get past the first page of [b:The Knife of Never Letting Go|2118745|The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)|Patrick Ness|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1277071696s/2118745.jpg|2124180] after reading dog's dialogue and I haven't been able to get too into [b:Shiver|6068551|Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)|Maggie Stiefvater|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328839272s/6068551.jpg|6244926], so I would normally basically run away in horror. But Armstrong writes these scenes with such joy that I can't help but love them.
