[R] Shiver, by: Maggie Stiefvater

(The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1)
by: Maggie Stiefvater

5 of 5 stars

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.
my thoughts

So... how to begin the review of this wonderful and lovely book? Yeah, I know that from the beginning. But the book is so cute. At first is kind of weird, because I didn't know where I was and what I was reading. This was because the first chapter is the attacking Grace and then skips in time to other things.

Main female character: Grace. A lovely girl who live in Mercy Falls. A small city with forest around. Basically she have one behind her house. Where the wolves live. She is totally facinated by them, no matter that they attack people, or even that they attacked her once. She still facinated by them, but more with a wolve with yellow eyes. She says that that wolf is hers.

We learn that the wolf is Sam. A quite handsome boy, who is a wolf. Basically he is not the only "werewolf" in the city or even the world. They become human in the hot months, summer, and in the cold ones, they become wolves. So yeah, they are temperature wolves (funny, right?). He, same as Grace, is facinated, but he is not facinated by wolves (because he is one, duh!), but by her. He falls in love with her and obviously she falls too.

Now, the problem is that winter is comming and Sam is in the risk to change in a wolf again. But this time maybe he cannot change to human ever again. They must fight that strong feeling and make their relationship very strong. Can they overcome these problems? I think that you do have an idea.

If you love wolves stories as you like love stories, then this is the perfect bundle! READ. IT.
