The basic premise of this story is a simple one: girl watches boy from afar and falls in love. Except in this boy is a werewolf, and this girl was almost killed by his pack when she was a child. The werewolves’ change is affected by cold and heat, so the wolves who are not too old become human again in the summer. The temperature of day is noted at the beginning of each chapter, and this becomes increasingly important as time progresses. Grace finally meets Sam during what will probably be his last summer as a human, and the story takes off from there.

One thing that really bothered me about the plot is the importance attributed Sam’s yellow wolf eyes and their distinctiveness; however, adult wolves naturally have yellow eyes. Grace’s character seems to me a little flat; her world centers around Sam and caring for him. There seem to be few interactions with her parents and friends.

Supernatural romances are huge right now in the teen reading world, and this particular novel is fairly popular already. The chapters are short and move quickly, alternating between Grace and Sam’s point of view. And though the weak writing may bother some readers, many will likely snap up this novel. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Shiver

As a child, Grace was pulled from her tire swing by the wolves. But one wolf refused to let the pack kill her and carried her home. Ever since Grace has held a fascination with them, some believe it is an obsession. But every winter Grace watches for the yellow-eyed wolf that saved her. And every winter the yellow-eyed boy in a wolf’s body watches Grace. Sam will wait for her as long as he has to.

Shiver is one of my favorite young adult books, and I have read it multiple times. I wanted to do it justice by finally providing a detailed review. When I first read Shiver I fell in love with the concept of wolves changing during the winter, and the relationship Grace and Sam developed. Revisiting Shiver, the magic of Grace and Sam’s love still made me smile as I listened along with the audiobook. I even found myself speaking aloud some of my favorite quotes. The anticipation I felt with each scene was more than worth the reread. Although I did pick up on some things this time around I didn’t originally.

I love the chemistry between Grace and Sam. Maggie Stiefvater portrays their love through more than just spoken words. Grace and Sam are fiercely loyal to one another and would do anything for each other. It also helps that Sam is sensitive and artistic, the type of guy that as a young adult I dreamed of meeting. The two characters also balance one another with their personalities. Sam is quiet, more so the person to keep to himself, whereas Grace is bold and not afraid to push boundaries.

The faults I found with Shiver have nothing to do with the storyline or main characters. Grace’s parents were portrayed as aloof and absent. Grace pretty much raised herself with parents that habited the same house. However, there were moments that I think even irresponsible parents would have seen issues with. But, then again this is a young adult book and there is a thrill that goes along with getting away with something at that age.

Shiver is an easy read that will pull your heartstrings as Grace and Sam fight against time to stay together. It is a typical young adult romance, but it isn’t overly dramatic. The fantasy elements blend seamlessly with the overall storyline and create a breathtaking new look at werewolves. ( )

I needed a light, fluffy read, but I couldn't get into this one. It was just too odd for my taste. The protagonist is obsessed with the wolves around her house, almost to the point of wanting to be one. And she seems to be particularly taken with one. But there's never a good explanation for this so it just comes off as weird and anti-social. Blech.

I tried to give this a go. But I don’t know why but I struggled to get into this. I loved the authors Raven Boys but this was not for me. ( )

It took me some time to really get into this book. Perhaps this is because when I read the description (werewolf!), I anticipated some carnage and chomping and grrr! Argh! And there was no real growly werewolf violence in the beginning, so I kind of lost interest. I’ve never been a big fan of love stories.

But I wanted to finish, because everyone seemed to really love the book. By the time I got into the last third, there was significantly more action, which made me very happy. I also found myself more invested in the lovey dovey bits. Plus there was some truly lovely descriptive language that made the reading experience pleasurable in and of itself.

In conclusion: I like bitey wolves. NOM!
