In Case You Missed It: Linger and Shiver

The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1

the cold.
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 to her, but she doesn't know why.

the heat.
Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace...until now.

the shiver.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, 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.

This book is a 5/5 read. Finding a copy in a used book store lead me to the wonderful world of Grace and her Sam. I fell in love and that was that. Check out this amazing trailer.

Just in case you missed the second book in the series...

The Wolves of Mercy Falls Book #2

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.

Linger was sent to me by the wonderful folks at Scholastic and I am so glad they did! This continuation of the Mercy Falls series is breathtaking and unforgettable. I truly am holding my breath for Forever to hit the stores this coming week.

In this book, Grace faces some changes that she did not plan on and so does Sam. I loved it for the unpredictable action, characters that breathe and the page turning angst that kept me flipping the pages late into the night until I finally collapsed in a heap at the end. A wonderful book. Maggie Stiefvater has created a world that many of us would love to live in. What could be better than a hunky werewolf sitting in your living room, right?

So, get ready for July 12th everyone! Forever is almost here!
