Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater

Series: The Wolves of Mercy Falls #4
Description from Goodreads:
A standalone companion book to the internationally bestselling Shiver Trilogy.
Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole's story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole's darkest secret -- his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel's life. Can this sinner be saved?
Why I can't wait:
The Shiver trilogy has a special place in my heart. It really, really does. Shiver was that book that I'd been seeing at the library all the time and kept passing up because I'm the freaking pickiest person ever, and then decided to grab one time--like, a year after seeing it for the first time. I enjoyed it. So then I got Linger from the library. Loved that one even more. Then I died while waiting for Forever. Got that for Christmas in 2011, before I started my blog. Read it, cried, and accepted that the series was over. Cole was my favorite character in that trilogy. And now he gets his own book. I am both SUPER excited for this book, but I'm kind of scared, too. I was cool with the story being over. I wasn't one of those people who was like OH HEY ANOTHER BOOK I NEED IT. But, I mean...I can't just let this book pass without giving it a shot. I'm kind of looking forward to seeing what Maggie did with Cole's story.
So, as for why I'm excited, let's list the reasons:
- I adore Cole
- Maggie's writing is beautiful
- How can I not read the ending to Cole's story?
- I loved the Shiver trilogy
- Because I can.
Oh, and fun fact: I totally cried when I saw this cover. This book is going to hurt my heart, I think.
What are you waiting on this week?
