the cold. Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow eyes-wolf --her wolf-- watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why.
the heat. Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace... until now.
the shiver.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human -- and Grace must fight to keep him -- even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future.

I'm currently on page 212 with plans to finish tonight or tomorrow. My attempts to finish these past couple days have been unsuccessful simply because I've been working on other articles and preparing for a convention I'm going to this weekend. A review should be up before next week ends.

Others in the series:

[Book 2-4 of 100]

Series: Mardock Scramble
Book: Omnibus (all 3 volumes in one)
Page Count: 680
Why me? It was to be the last thought a young prostitute, Balot, would ever have…as a human anyway. Taken in by a devious gambler named Shell, she became a slave to his cruel desires and would have been killed by his hand if not for a private investigator and his self-aware Universal Tool, Oefcoque. Now a cyborg, Balot has not only physical powers, but the ability to disrupt social environments. She chases after Shell, his partner-in-crime Boiled, and faces down a variety of insane villains in this pulse-pounding cyberpunk noir adventure.

I planned to start this one yesterday while getting my car detailed but the place I bought my vehicle was being very rude and unprofessional simply because my sales person was not there =/ Needless to say I was not able to start this one yet. Even though I'm most excited to read this one. There is a movie out already (movie 2 is out as well but I'm waiting for the DVD release in Japan so a group will have footage to sub) and 3 volumes of the manga have been published in English!

[Book 3 of 100]

Series: Lunar Chronicles
Book: 1 of 4
Page Count: 400
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

I found this book while wondering around Barnes and Noble one day. I'm a huge fan of series about cyborgs, androids, etc especially when it comes to them being nearly "Human". I forget which page I'm on though.
