As you know, Shiver is one of my favorite books of all time. I love it. Grace and Sam. The love story gripped me and I read it in one night... didn't go to bed until the sun came up and only after I sent an e-mail to my friends/family who were on the look out for something paranormal to fall in love with. And every single one of them has since e-mailed me back (or told me in conversation) that I was dead on and they LOVED IT also.
So you can imagine that when Maggie Stiefvater announced a contest for an ARC of Linger I was all about it! I mean, I'm about to look up voodoo techniques to increase my chances of winning. If I have to hop on one leg with a snake wrapped around my neck and chant "FARFANOPOLIS*" every day until the contest is over--I'm DOING it.
And, in fact, as soon as I'm done posting this, I'll be off to make my lucky voodoo underwear, just like this guy instructs:
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.
Comes out in stores everywhere July 20th. Pre-order here.
Enter to win an advanced review copies of LINGER, Sisters Red, The Dead-Tossed Waves, and The Replacement on Maggie's blog.
*For the record, farfanopolis is not a real word. I made it up in imagining what I might have to chant...
