Waiting on Wednesday (48)--Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

Release Date: July 20, 2010 from Scholastic


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.

I reviewed Shiver last night, so I thought that Linger was the obvious choice for today's Waiting on Wednesday. I can't wait for this book. It looks awesome and I know it'll be a fantastic read. I also love, love, love the cover. The color scheme is brilliant. Unfortunately, July is a long, long way away. Luckily I have Stiefvater's other two books Lament and Ballad to keep me occupied for awhile.
