Waiting On Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking The Spine.

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 Isabel, 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.

At the start of this mesmerizing new installment of the Immortals series, Ever is helping her friend Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and carelessly putting them all at risk, their friendship becomes more and more strained. At the same time, Ever delves deeper into magick in order to get control over her enemy Roman and free Damen from his power. But when the spell she casts on Roman backfires, she’s bound to her deadliest enemy. Frantic to reverse the spell the moment the moon enters a new phase, she finds her efforts are fruitless—there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, one that propels her toward Roman. Desperate to break free of this terrible curse before Damen or the twins can discover what she’s done, she turns to Jude and delves deeper and deeper into dark magick, ultimately risking everything she knows and loves—including Damen.

I wasn't a huge fan of 'Evermore' (the Twilight similarities killed it for me) but I LOVED Shiver, so I'm super excited about 'Linger', too! :)
Hope it's warm in PR... England's like 5 degrees C right now. I want to be back home in Turkey... mom said it hit 30! *sob*

I'm VERY excited for Linger! Shiver was one of my favorite books last year, the last page just about broke my heart it was so beautiful. I really hope that Linger can live up to it! I've only read Evermore and Blue Moon, but I hope to read the others!

AH! LINGER! Oh how I'm extremely excited for that. And I've yet to read Blue Moon, the second book. It's sitting on my shelf right now...Haven't had the chance to look into it yet :(
