In My Mailbox 32

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren
Bought: Shiver by Maggie Stifvater
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human ... until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles
When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado . Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.

Other Bookish Thing (from Barnes & Noble):
I got a really cute bookmark for the children's book THE LITTLE PIANO GIRL by Ann Ingalls and Maryann Macdonald. Sorry, I can't put a picture of it up. It doesn't look the picture I have here.
I also got a wicked cool Harry Potter bookmark of Voldemort!
I got this really awesome quotablemagnet! Here's what it says:
We are friends for life.
When we're together the years fall away.
Isn't that what matters?
To have someone who can remember with you?
To have someone who remembers how far you've come?
~ Judy Blume
It's been awhile since I've read a Judy Blume book. Does anyone know what book this quote is in?
