Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on. I have decided to participate because I have a list that can go on forever and ever and it is interesting to see what else others are "waiting" for also.
This week's choice is an upcoming book from Egmont. I cannot wait for it.

RAISED BY WOLVES by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

After a rowue wolf kills her parents right before her eyes, Bryn is taken in by Callum, Alpha of his pack, and raised as a human among werewolves. Now fifteen, Bryn knows only pack life, and the rigid social heirarchy that controls it. That doesn't mean she isn't willing to break a rule or two.
But when her curiosity gets the best of her, she discovers Chase, anew teen Were, locked in a cage in her gaurdians's basemant. As she witnesses him turn into a wolf before her eyes, the horrific memories of her parents' murders retur. Bryn becomes obsessed with getting answeres about what happened to her parents, and Chase is the only one who can provide the information she needs.
Bryn and Chase begin to form a bond stronger than pack ties and to threaten the entire heierachy that controls werewolf life. Will the shocking secrets that Bryn discovers about the pack force her to leave behind the only home she's ever known?
Much more than a paranormal novel, Raised by Wolves grounded in the behaviors and social structure of wolf packs, is both a chilling and literary novel and a brand-new take on an age-old legend.

Wow, this looks incredible. I'm sure fans of Shiver will rejoice in something else to read while they wait for Linger. Thanks for the tipoff!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
