Waiting On Wednesday (9)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.

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.


I need some fantasy read so I'm really attracted to this one - even though I just found it on Amazon this afternoon. Even though vampires never interest me, I'm a big fan of werewolves (well I don't know anything about them, but I really like how they howl lol). In addtion, a romance between human and something not-human is always cool, especially when it takes place in winter. I just hope that there'll be a happy ending.

Get ready for some Shiver on August 1st.


by the way, my dog is wagging on wed at Amy S King's blog so if you love me (or just don't have anything to do), get over there and say hi to him :)
