On My Wish List is hosted by Book Chick City every week. The idea is to spotlight books we have on our wishlists. These are books we really want to read but haven't had the chance to buy yet. They can be old books, new books, books that haven't been released yet, but that we intend to buy when they do. A Mr. Linky is provided so that we can keep up with each others selection each week.
I generally choose three books a week from my wish list. I chose Shiver, Linger and Forever this week, because I think this looks like an awesome series and I have heard so many good things about them.
Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls - Book 1) 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.
Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls - Book 2) by Maggie Stiefvater
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 none the less 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.
Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls - Book 3) by Maggie Stiefvater
Coming in July, 2011
The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater.
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. In Linger, they fought to be together. Now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.
