SHIVER Playlist, Red Coffee Pots, and Audio Books!

coffee pot First of all, IT'S SHIVER DAY!!!!!

Second of all, look what arrived with perfect timing!? Editor Mixtape at Scholastic told me to keep my eyes open for a package in the mail; something to celebrate my release day and getting LINGER off to production. I had to open it in the post office parking lot and then proceeded to laugh like a crazy person.

In case you can't tell what it is, it's a red coffee pot.

It's not even used.

In order to understand the significance of the red coffee pot, I'm afraid you will have to read SHIVER and then read LINGER. And then you will come back to this post and laugh at David's cleverness.

Until then, I'm afraid you will just have to take my word on it that it is very, very amusing to me.

Okay. So, secondly! I promised I would post the playlist for SHIVER today, and indeed I will. I made one on playlist.com, but unfortunately they were missing a few tracks. So I'm going to give it to you straight, then embed the one that playlist had, which you can actually listen to. Savvy? Yes.

So, here it is:
1. "The Ocean" - The Bravery (the general thematic song)
2. "Sundrenched World" - Joshua Radin
3. "Run" - Snow Patrol
4. "Cemeteries of London" - Coldplay (hunt scene)
5. "Make This Go On Forever" - Snow Patrol
6. "Matroshka" - Dredg
7. "Underwater" - Vertical Horizon
8. "Star Mile" - Joshua Radin (making quiche)
9. "Set the Fire to the Third Bar" - Snow Patrol
10. "Jeremiah" - Starsailor
11. "Bug Eyes" - Dredg
12. "Everything'll Be Alright" - Joshua Radin (bookstore scene)
13. "Hide and Seek" - Imogen Heap (car scene near end)
14. "A Clock is Ticking" - Snow Patrol (Jack scene near end)
15. "Peter Returns" - James Newton Howard (final scene)
16. "Wake Up, Open the Door, & Escape to the Sea" - Blaqk Audio (ultimate nookie scene)

I'm very sad that I can't find an online version of "Peter Returns" because DAMM it's perfect.

Basically, I listened to Snow Patrol, Joshua Radin, and Imogen Heap nonstop. Also, Blaqk Audio, although I doubt this will evoke a very Shiver emotion in anyone else. I'm not sure why it worked for me -- I felt a little silly including that one that I used to write the nookie scene, but in the interests of full disclosure . . .

Actually, it's funny to see how varied the playlist for LINGER is in comparison, because of the influence of iTunes and how I could buy individual tracks. Huh. There's an anthropology paper in there somewhere, folks. A boring one, but one nonetheless.

Anyway, the playlist:


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


And finally, I have several audio books of SHIVER that I can giveaway in various contests or drawings or something. Do I have reader interest in such things?

Me me me!!! Although I have read SHIVER ...i love audiobooks. They keep me sane during my daily 2hour commute.

Maggie Stiefvater said...

I am trying to think of the best way to disseminate without causing me LOADS of work. I'm thinking I will give out copies to people to hold contests -- one for them and one for them to give away on their blogs maybe . . .

Letter Garden said...

YESSS!!! Thanks Amazon god! I got my copy of Shiver. Yay! It's one of the most perfect werwolf book EVER!! LOVE IT 100%!

ElegantSnobbery said...

YAY for you and your official SHIVER day! Hey, that should become a national holiday, don't you think?

and OOOOOh, audio Shivers! I love listening to audiobooks while I'm working... if you give them to blogs for giveaways, make sure you let us know!

Sarah said...

(This is the same Sarah as Bookduck on Livejournal) Congratulations on Shiver Day! And thanks for sharing your playlist :D

...and I'm sure you'll have reader interest in audio book giveaways. I know I'm interested.

Jazz said...

Congrats on the release of Shiver! Can't wait to read and listen to this music while reading. I am sure to cry at the end just because I'll now be thinking about Peter Pan, my first love. I am certainly interested in the audiobook and I have a blog that can be used to give one away. =)

Maggie Stiefvater said...

Letter -- whooo!!!!! Thank you!!

Marisa, I'm still formulating the audio plan but it is slowly coming into shape.

Sarah, thank you! And more on audio books shortly . ..

Jazz - Thanks! And I love that new version of Peter Pan SO MUCH.

Shelli said...

Chairman Meow said...

Chairman Meow said...

Speaking for the Mundie Moms... we'll totally do a contest for Shiver. :)

Maggie Stiefvater said...

Thanks, Meow! :D

is shiver going to be made into a movie? i love the book and do NOT think u deserve all the harsh criticism that u keep getting.. the book is not anything in relation to twilight and never will be.. people are just stuck with the image of edward and bella in there heads.. when i read this book, i see a love story about a boy and a girl , and the feeling that true love exists flows through my brains.. i loved this book!

Maggie Stiefvater said...

It's been optioned by Warner Bros., so maybe! And thanks, I'm glad you loved it. I can't complain, though, because for every negative review there are dozens of positive ones. I'm quite lucky!

Morgan said...

Ohmy... this playlist is amazing. I know this is an old post, & you probably don't reply to comments on it anymore, but this playlist is... everything I imagined while reading 'Shiver'. I have added every single song on this to my ipod & plan on listening to them all as I re-read Shiver in anticipation for 'Linger'
<3 Morgan.

Maggie Stiefvater said...

I'm so glad you love it, Morgan!

Samm said...

Maggie Stiefvater said...
