Author Maggie Stiefvater

I have recently discovered the world of Maggie Stiefvater. I laughed, I cried, I loved. Shiver was an absolutly wonderful story of a girl, Grace who falls in love with Sam, a boy that leads a double life. In the winter he is wolf, and summer he is human. But he struggles to stay human to be with Grace.


It was love at first paragraph for me. I immediatly ordered her 2 previous book about fairies, Lament and Ballad and am impatiently waiting for them to arrive at my doorstep.

She has a contest to receive the newest of the wolves of Mercy Falls-Linger, before you can buy it!(and frankly, I'm dying to read it-July is a long ways away. I don't do well with patience)

Linger Cover LargeIn 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.
