Shiver to Linger

Howdy folks. This is for those of you who trust my taste in books. This is one of my very favorite books:

Shiver is one of those Young Adult books with forbidden love. It's so well written, I literally inhaled it. This will give you a sense of how much I loved this book: I took it with me when we took our family trip to Yosemite last Fall. Now you guys know how much I love our annual trips to Yosemite. I love to soak up the nature and our family time. Well all that changed, ladies and gentle viewers, when I started reading this book. I was in beautiful Yosemite and all I wanted to do was ditch the family, sit under a tree and KEEP READING. It's true. I loved it that much.

Well the sequel to Shiver is coming out!!! It's called Linger. And I honestly can't wait to read it! So when I saw that you could enter to win an advanced copy of Linger by mentioning it on my blog, I jumped at the chance. Well, technically I am jumping at the chance since I'm mentioning it right now. I want NEED an advanced copy of this book people!!!! *withdrawal shakes*

So if you haven't already read "Shiver" by Maggie Stiefvater, go to the bookstore now. Do it! You'll thank me later. If you want to get it online, CLICK HERE. It's only $10.52 on Amazon!

Now... about that sequel:

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 Isabelle, 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.

Comes out in stores everywhere July 20th. Pre-order here.

Enter to win an advanced review copies of LINGER, Sisters Red, The Dead-Tossed Waves, and The Replacement on Maggie's blog.


  1. I got Shiver for Christmas...but I haven't read it yet. I am thinking I'll move it to the top of my pile :-) But I must admit to loving the idea of reading the book and then being able to immediately read the sequel!
