Book Review SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater

I'd had this book on my "to read" list for quite a while.  After the first 20 pages I was glad I had finally gotten around to it.  Once I realized how much I was enjoying it, I was even happier that I had waited long enough that all the books in the trilogy are out and I wouldn't have to wait forever to find out what happens next.

Grace lives near the woods in a small town in Minnesota.  She's spent her whole life watching the wolves in the woods from her home.  One particular wolf she's always felt a connection too, this yellow-eyed wolf, she calls her wolf.

Sam lives two very different lives.  A short time each year during the summer months he is human.  The rest of the year his life is spent as a wolf.  He's kept a silent watch on the girl he loves, but has never dared to make contact with her since he knows it would never work.  But one day, a shot rings through the air and Sam for the first time shows himself to Grace.

Shiver takes you on an adventure between the lives of humans and wolves.  A love between two individuals that shouldn't be possible is and that means a fight to keep what they have now found.  Sam must fight the cold that is threatening to take him away forever, and Grace must fight against Sam's threats from his past.  Together, they search for answers, and take advantage of every moment, because each moment could be their last.

Shiver, is filled with young love, twists and suspense.  Uniquely written, I have not read anything like this before.  However, I can see how this novel would appeal to Twilight fans, even though it's nothing like it.  Shiver, sweeps you off to a unique fantasy world between humans and wolves and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.  I found it to be a quick read, and feel this book would appeal to anyone over the age of 15.  It's also quite clean, you won't have to worry about inappropriate content.  If you'd like a great read, that will allow your mind to escape reality and into romance and fantasy, I highly recommend this New York Times Bestseller Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

  1. I loved this book. I only discovered this book, because when I went to the book store looking for a book that was like Twilight but not, this is what I was recommended, and I just loved it.
