Hi everyone, I’ve got a great way to start out your week! With a giveaway of Shiver and Maggie Stiefvater’s newest in The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy – Linger, releasing on July 20, 2010! Everyone at Scholastic Press wants to make sure readers are ready to delve into Linger by whetting your appetites with Shiver!
I just received my books so unfortunately I don’t have a review ready of even Shiver but I can tell you that I’ve heard so many good things about Shiver around the blog world that I can’t wait to read it! Plus I am such a sucker for a series – I just can’t seem to help myself when it comes to starting new ones.
Here’s a bit about the books:
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
Check out the press release for Shiver from Scholastic Press:
to deal with the challenges they face.”
–Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
The Time Traveler’s Wife, because they tell quiet, bittersweet love stories.”
In August 2009, dazzlingly talented newcomer, Maggie Stiefvater, introduced readers to Shiver, a powerful supernatural love story. This chilling, beautifully crafted novel was an instant New York Times bestseller. Rights to thirty foreign editions of Shiver have been licensed to date, and the book is now in its third printing, with more than 150,000 copies in print within one month of publication
Shiver brings together two teenagers against all odds. Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar but she doesn’t know why.
Sam has lived two lives. In the cold winter months, he is a wolf, keeping the silent company of his pack and keeping careful watch over the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year when the weather is warm enough, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace… until now.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But now it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human—and Grace must fight to keep him—even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future.
