Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater


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.

WOW WOW WOW!! That pretty much sums up how I feel about this book. I so did not want it to end so you can imagine my utter delight when I discovered it was the first in a trilogy. WOOP WOOP! I can't wait to read what happens to Grace and Sam and all their 'friends' in the next one.
This is the first book I've ever read by Maggie Stiefvater and it certainly won't be the last. I was totally hooked from the very first line - I mean, this author has the power to draw you in and leave you feeling utterly engrossed - like you're part of the world she's created. I cried, boy did I cry. My husband actually had to come over and make sure I was ok! Seriously, I felt like I was a part of Sam and Grace's little circle. Like they were my family. I guess you can figure out that I loved this book! I haven't felt book adoration like this since... well, Harry Potter and Twilight! I am in awe of this author, literally in awe. Ok, I'll shut up now.

About the author
New York Times bestselling author of The Shiver Trilogy, The Raven Cycle, and The Scorpio Races. Artist. Driver of things with wheels. Avid reader.
All of Maggie Stiefvater's life decisions have been based around her inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pajamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor, or technical editor (all of which she's tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists and artists. She's made her living as one or the other since she was 22. She now lives an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia with her charmingly straight-laced husband, two kids, two neurotic dogs, and a 1973 Camaro named Loki.
