Waiting on Wednesday (3): Double Feature - Shiver & Going Bovine

To make up for not posting anything last week (I had a huge exam the next day and couldn't be bothered), I'm going to post TWO books today. And they are:

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Release on: August 1, 2009
(from Goodreads):

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.

Going Bovine by Libba Bray

Release on: September 22, 2009
(from Amazon):

Can Cameron find what he's looking for?

All 16-year-old Cameron wants is to get through high school—and life in general—with a minimum of effort. It's not a lot to ask. But that's before he's given some bad news: he's sick and he's going to die. Which totally sucks. Hope arrives in the winged form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit. She tells Cam there is a cure—if he's willing to go in search of it. With the help of a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf and a yard gnome, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America into the heart of what matters most.
Note from Mik: I am super excited for this book. Libba Bray is my favorite author. I LOVED the Gemma Doyle Trilogy and the excerpt looks awesome. Plus all the reviews I've seen say this is amazing. So I'm really, really excited this one.

I am hearing a lot about Shiver. I'll have to check it out more. I was able to snag an early copy of Going Bovine, but haven't read it yet. Looking forward to it.

I can't wait for Shiver! The world needs more werewolf novels.
