Shiver

Hey guys! I'll try to update you more later about my life, but I am kinda in a rush but promised I'd do a review today...



Title: Shiver



Author: Maggie Stiefvater


SYNOPSISFor years, Grace has watched the wolves outside her Mercy Falls, Minnesota home every winter. She is particularly drawn to one with stunning yellow eyes. She is certain that it is the same wolf who saved her from its pack who attacked her when she was a young girl. When Grace meets the wounded and temporarily human Sam, she knows from his yellow eyes that he is her wolf. Immediately drawn to one another, they fall in love during their first encounter. Sam leads two lives. He is human in the spring and summer, but he turns into a wolf when the temperature turns cold. The problem Sam faces is that the longer he remains a wolf, the less time he spends in human form. A time will eventually come when he will not change back and will forever be a wolf. Can Grace and Sam fight to stay together or will the cold separate them forever?


GOOD STUFF: romance, suspense, breathtaking


BAD STUFF: as with the book I did yesterday, you need to be careful when you read this on account of some inappropriate content (I chose to keep reading because I could handle it and the author gives very little details in what is happening that I didn't even know it happened until the main characters mentioned it briefly)


RATING: 8 because some parts I disapproved in knocked off some points but other than that it was a very enjoyable read with suspense and forbidden love


RECOMMENDED READERS: 8th - 12th graders


COMPANION BOOKS: Linger (which I have not read), Forever (also which I have not read)

Hello there! Thanks so much for dropping by my little corner of the blogosphere. I'd really appreciate if you could give me a follow as well *hint, hint* These "about-me's" are literally the hardest things to write, but I'll have a go at it. You can call me July, or really whatever else floats your boat. I live in a very culturally proud little town that borders beautiful beaches, giving us fun for both summer and winter such as swimming, tanning, boating, skiing, ice-fishing, ice-berg walking, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach year-round. I hope to make it through high school and head off to college for, well, I don't know yet, but whatever it is, it'll be something I love. Robotics, books, movies, and music of all genres are kinda my thing. I would basically consider myself to be one of those stereotypical girls who fall desperately in love with fictional boys... I have a strange obsession with tea drunken from cute elephant mugs. So grab a cuppa and strap yourselves in for some brilliant stuff coming soon!
