Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater



For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without.

Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human… until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.





Let the rant begin....


This won't be a long review for a number of reasons, mainly because I really didn't like it.

Is it just me, or is it really disappointing when a beautiful book turns out to be the most poorly written thing you have read?

That's what it was like for Shiver. The cover was beautiful with or without the dust jacket, the writing was even in blue ink for crying out loud. But unfortunately all that beauty was wasted on the rubbish that was written in it.


To be honest, I hate slandering books that I don't like, that's why this is going to be a short review. This is just my honest opinion on a book I read. Sorry to offend anyone.


The only thing I hated the most from this was the two teenage protagonist characters, Grace and Sam. More so Grace, as yet again a Young Adult novel that has a weak female character. She is definitely not a good role model for young girls, there is more to life than boys.

And what is with this "love at first sight"? She even invites him to sleep in her room when they first meet....there is so many things wrong with this book I really don't know where to begin.


I'm just going to put this away and pretend I didn't pay for it, and I will also not admit that I bought the next two books in the trilogy......okay I just did.


Rant over.
