In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabel, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole. At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love -- the light and the dark, the warm and the cold -- in a way you will never forget.I'm not a big fan of the paranormal romance, but Shiver had to be one of my favorites. (Along with Wake by Lisa McMann.) You know, I'm not really sure why, because it isn't startlingly original or incredibly well-written, it doesn't really stand out, and yet Maggie Stiefvater's voice just rocks. I might also like it because I adore Maggie Stiefvater. If you are on Twitter, follow her right now @mstiefvater - she's hilarious! Check out her blog, too (it's in my sidebar).
Anyway, I've gone so far as to pre-order a signed copy of this one. It will unfortunately arrive while I'm at summer camp, but I plan to devour it as soon as I get home! I really care about the characters, and while I haven't been on the edge of my seat like I have been for Mockingjay, I've certainly been anxious!
So, what are you waiting on this Wednesday? Leave your links in the comments! =)
