Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

the cold.
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.

the heat.
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.

the shiver.
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.

 Because Forever, the last installment of this series, comes out on Tuesday, I'm gonna go ahead and review the first two books. I was going to review them later when I reread them, but I thought this was a more appropriate time to do it. 

Shiver is a story about love and werewolves. But I think its more about love. The love that Sam and Grace share is just too cute. This book didn't have a lot of action but I was completely fine with that. I loved reading about Sam and Grace just spending some time together.

The werewolves in this book change by temperature not by the moon. I thought that was different in a cool way. Usually with all the other werewolf stories, I always think about how cool it would be to be a werewolf but with this story it was the complete opposite. There was nothing cool about these werewolves. It was just a sad disease that they had and were stuck with.

This book is one of my favorites and if you haven't read it yet, then you need to!
