A Giveaway And Some Opening Lines...

Here we are at Day 4 of my Random Giveaway Week. Yesterday, I gave away BEFORE I FALL. And the winner is:

JEMI FRASER!!

WOO HOO!!!!

For today, I am giving away something by another amazing author - Maggie Stiefvater -

SHIVER - (blurb from Amazon) -From School Library Journal

Starred Review. Grade 9 Up—Grace, 17, loves the peace and tranquility of the woods behind her home. It is here during the cold winter months that she gets to see her wolf—the one with the yellow eyes. Grace is sure that he saved her from an attack by other wolves when she was nine. Over the ensuing years he has returned each season, watching her with those haunting eyes as if longing for something to happen. When a teen is killed by wolves, a hunting party decides to retaliate. Grace races through the woods and discovers a wounded boy shivering on her back porch. One look at his yellow eyes and she knows that this is her wolf in human form. Fate has finally brought Sam and Grace together, and as their love grows and intensifies, so does the reality of what awaits them. It is only a matter of time before the winter cold changes him back into a wolf, and this time he might stay that way forever. Told from alternating points of view, the narrative takes a classic Romeo & Juliet plot and transforms it into a paranormal romance that is beautiful and moving. Readers will easily identify with the strong, dynamic characters. The mythology surrounding the wolf pack is clever and so well written that it seems perfectly normal for the creatures to exist in today's world. A must-have that will give Bella and Edward a run for their money.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY END --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
I loved this book from page one through the end. And I can honestly say, I was a bit influenced by her writing style...um, yep!

TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY! I was trying to think of something to tempt you with - a clue....something. But I've got nothing except this -

A few opening lines. They will have no meaning to you until tomorrow, most likely - but here you go:

#1 - "It always starts the same."
#2 - "I shift in the booth, careful to remain hidden in the shadows."

Yea, I know - these don't help at all....
