Book Spotlight: Maggie Stiefvater's "Shiver" and "Linger"

I recently found an author whom a love: Maggie Stiefvater.  She has a blog she actively keeps up, a twitter, a Goodreads account, and she wrote an awesome book called Shiver, which I'm currently re-reading. 
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.

Watch the trailer (made by the author herself!) here:

The book is really great and what's even better, a sequel, Linger, is coming out this summer! Check out the trailer for it here.
