Book: Shiver

Series The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1

Grace and Sam share a kinship so close they could be lovers or siblings. But they also share a problem. When the temperature slips towards freezing, Sam reverts to his wolf identity and must retreat into the woods to protect his pack. He worries that eventually his human side will fade away and he will be left howling alone at the lonely moon. A stirring supernatural teen romance.

I picked this book up because it was rated one of the best paranormal YA books

What I liked the Most? The fact that Sam & Grace battle everything together

What I liked the Least? Jack – plain & simple

Review: Ok so the book wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. It had some beautiful amazingly written portions & some WTF did she just say portions. I enjoyed the whole desperate struggle to hold onto the warmth of humanity section. But I did find it a little hard to swallow that yet again it’s the teen age girl going gimmie gimmie gimmie and the teen aged boy saying “no”.

Recommended to: Anyone wanting the Team Jacob version of Twilight

Best Quote: “That is just so romantic. Do me a favor, and don’t you two ever change. The world needs more love at first sight.”
