"Waiting On" Wednesday: Forever

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's "Waiting On" Wednesday selection is:

By:  Maggie Stiefvater
Publish Date:  July 12, 2011 by Scholastic Press

From Publishers Weekly, starred review~
A lyrical tale of alienated werewolves and first love...Stiefvater skillfully increases the tension throughout; her take on werewolves is interesting and original while her characters are refreshingly willing to use their brains to deal with the challenges they face.

I fell in love with Maggie Stiefvater's first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy, Shiver.  It was one of the first books that had a different take on the werewolf mythos, and it is quite refreshing to see a modern idea for werewolves.  Shiver was also one of the first books that my beloved and I read together, though he somehow managed to finish it before me.  Linger has kept everyone on pins and needles and anxiously awaiting the release of the final volume, Forever.  If you love werewolves and the sometimes long and hard journey of true love, I highly recommend all three books in the Wolves of Mercy Falls.  Below are the covers of the first two books if you can grab them either from the store or at the library.


  1. i've had shiver and linger on my bookshelf for a long time but is hesitating on picking it up for some reason. i should, everyone loves the series.

    i love how all three covers match. great pick!


    please check mine out if you have time:

  2. Michelle, I can understand hesitating on reading a trilogy especially when not all of the books are published yet. :) Luckily for all of us, the wait is nearly over for the final book, and I'm on pins and needles just for the release date to come!

    You had an excellent pick, too, as well as being the last of a trilogy. :D Here's hoping both trilogies will end on magnificent notes.

    Thank you for visiting!

  3. I've read Shiver, but not yet had the chance to read Linger. I want to though, I really enjoyed Shiver. I may just wait for Forver to come out and read them all back to back.

  4. I agree on that, Natalie, and I'll actually be reading them all back to back too, once Forever comes out. That's mostly for refreshing my memory on Sam and Grace's story. ;)

    Thank you for visiting and happy reading!
