Waiting on Wednesday: Week 2

WOW is hosted by Breaking The Spine.

Today's WOW is LINGER by Maggie Stiefvater. I have been anticipating this book since I finished reading my (autographed) ARC of SHIVER last March. Maggie is also the author of two books about homicidal faeries: LAMENT and it's sequel, BALLAD. Both of these books are excellent. You should definitely check her out.

This cover is AMAZING.


The sequel to Shiver follows the story of Grace and the wolves of Mercy Falls.

Maggie says: "It's about after. What happens after you discover there are werewolves in the wood, after you've fallen in love for the first time, after you've lost what you think you can't live without, after you've become someone you can't live with."

...grace...

This is the story of a boy who used to be a wolf and a girl who was becoming one.

Just a few months ago, it was Sam who was the mythical creature. His was the disease we couldn't cure. His was the good-bye that meant the most. He had the body that was a mystery, too strange and wonderful and terrifying to comprehend.

But now it is spring. With the heat, the remaining wolves will soon be falling out of their wolf pelts and back into their human bodies. Sam stays Sam, and Cole stays Cole, and it's only me who's not firmly in my own skin.

You won't be disappointed. Maggie is one of my top favorite authors and Shiver was one of the best books I read in 2009. Also one of the most beautiful covers!
