Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls)I decided to check out this book because it seemed that everyone was reading it and apparently I am a sucker for peer pressure. This is another one I read awhile back so please bear with me.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater is the story of a Grace and Sam. Grace is a normal 17 year old girl with disinterested parents and Sam is a werewolf whose changes are regulated by the temperature.

The story is told in alternating POV's through Grace and Sam's eyes. I thought the differing POV's was interesting and lets you see the whole story from different angles. I enjoyed the book but in the end I wasn't floored by it and it didn't suck me in. Not sure what it was about it that didn't grab me but something was missing. I think I will likely pick up the second book in the series at some point but I'm not rushing out to buy it either.

So I am not the only one who picks books because of their cover :) Great review Rachel

Kavyen- I am a huge sucker for a pretty cover. It's what usually pulls me towards a book in the first place. I try not to judge people but I totally judge books by their cover.
