Tuesday Trends #2

I am starting "Tuesday Trends" which you can probably guess will be posted on Tuesdays, hence the name. If you haven't noticed, there are several trends in the book world/blogging about book world that change constantly. And from what I see/hear about-I will post in this thing I call "Tuesday Trends". It will be about anything from plot lines, characters, genre's in books to what's really popular in the blogging world. Hopefully this will be lots of fun, and I would love to hear your thoughts about what you think are the trends. So comments are very much appreciated.

Tuesday Trends #2
Topic: Linger by Maggie Stiefvator
Um...where to begin. How about that Linger by Maggie Stiefvator is EVERYWHERE in the blogging world. Every other post is about her new book (the sequel to Shiver) but it doesn't come out until July 20th and don't get me wrong-I'm excited for it, too, and the cover looks amazing. And then I wanted to get to the bottom of it-so I went to Maggie's website and found out that she's having this huge contest and the winner will receive an ARC of Linger.  Not only is it a great prize, but an umpteenth number of people have already entered.  
Shiver, the first book in this series, was very popular and everyone I knew loved it. I liked it, too so I will be looking forward to seeing what direction Maggie takes her characters.
And if you have entered the contest or are going to in the near future, I just wanted to wish you Good Luck!
