"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
By Maggie Stiefvater

The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stievater.
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.

I've always thought, "Werewolves? I mean...ugh. Gross. No, thank you." And, well, I still feel this way.
But this series opened me up to reading some books that, yeah, happen to feature werewolves, but are also beautifully written stories of struggle, triumph and—heck yeah—romance. If I hadn't read Shiver, I probably wouldn't have given Nightshade by Andrea Cremer a second glance, but I ended up really enjoying that book. I like finding reads that open you up to new things.
This series is poetically written, too thrilling to put down and one of my favorites. Ever. Hands down. Can't wait for the last book!
