Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Age Group: YA
Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why.
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.
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.
Shiver immediatly caught my attention with it's cover. I love Shiver's cover. It's so beautiful and I remember that when I bought this book, it was summer and just looking at that cover made it feel as though it was winter and I actually hoped it was winter because what would be better than reading this book during winter.
The story was fantastic itself. There was never a dull moment in the book or a moment where I wanted to stop. I didn't want to stop reading. I wanted Grace and Sam's story to continue forever, but as we all know, all good things must come to and end. But don't be disappointed there yet. The story continues with Linger and later on with Forever.
Overall, if you love werewolves and the unltimate love story, this book's for you.
