Has anyone read the series by Maggie Stiefvater that starts with the book "Shiver"? Is it good/would you recommend it? I've seen it a couple of times at a store, but I haven't heard anything about it and don't know if I want to buy it or not *lol*.

I love both Shiver and Linger and can't wait for Forever! It's a wonderful series and the author is really awesome. I've met her a number of times and she's great. You should definitely check the series out (either buying or through library- your library should have it as it's a NYT Bestseller and being made into a movie) if you like werewolves, romance, and angst.

My library has a really small YA section, but I requested it through inter-library loan so it should be in some day this week! *yay* I really like werewolf, ghost, etc stories so I think I'll like it (plus I thought it was really cool that the text was a blue shade to match the cover *lol). It's being made into a movie, too? I hadn't heard that, but that's awesome! I'll say what I thought of it after I finish it :)

I finished the first in the series- I liked it! It was cool how some chapters were from Grace's point of view, and other's were from Sam's. And the ending was surprising and written well- I was expecting one outcome, until the last page! :)

^^Oh yeah, forgot to mention about the multiple perspective. Linger has four narrators- Sam, Grace, and then Isabel and a new character Cole. Not sure who will be in Forever (the final book).

Also, speaking of Maggie, she has another book coming out this year in October called The Scorpio Races. No idea what it's about just yet but I think it's told between two perspectives.

Loved Shiver, Linger, & Forever (books in Wolves of Mercy Falls series)! Definite MUST READS, they are just amazing books. I did not know that they were being made into a movie(s). That would be great! Just bought Maggie Stiefvater's newest book, The Scorpio Races, can't wait to read it!
