Lucky Enough to Read the ARC of Linger!

A couple of weeks ago I traveled to Boston with our school's libarian/media specialist and attended the ALA's midwinter conference. I was in HEAVEN! We received tons of ARCs and copies of newly released books. However, it was when we went by the Scholastic booth that we really got excited...there on the table was the ARC for Linger! Yes, Linger - the highly anticipated next book of the Shiver series. I devoured it in one day - and all I'll say is...awesome. A little predictable in some areas, but I loved the new male wolf character, and the love story is still what drives the heart of the story. I also loved the ending - the drama of the hospital, conflict with the parents, and the cliffhanger which means - another book!

Check out our blog...Larkin's Book Bloggers -


My middle school students will be posting a review soon - of Linger and many other new novels! And watch for a new contest soon...we'll be giving away an ARC of Linger!

My BFF is almost finished with her master's in Lib Science focus on YA and she never goes to anything cool like that...she could've gotten me LINGER! Oo, there's gonna be a throw-down over this one.

Okay, not really, but I am, glad to see you had a great time. If you don't mind me asking, what sorts of things get discussed at these conferences? Idea about increasing patron involvement? Ideas about working with neighboring libraries? Just curious.
