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.

Light, fluffy reading. Before I read this book, I was told that this is the book for the Jacob fangirls from the Twilight phenomenon. Yup, whoever said that was right. So does the fact that I got sucked in enough to finish Shiver AND went on to read the sequel make me a Jacob fangirl? *facepalm* Oh, the indignity! 😛

(I vote nay)

Anyhoo, this book was fun in ways Twilight was not. We did have some stalking going on in this book, very similar to Twilight in that respect – but it wasn’t quite so creepy. At least our hero didn’t want to drink our heroine’s blood! And we didn’t have as much cheesy dialogue going on or vampires that SPARKLE (good grief) when the sun hits them. 😉

Like or dislike? LIKE, but not enough to re-read or own. Definitely a fun means of passing the time on a holiday weekend.

(Note to self, however: stop reading in bed or get lots more pillows when you do so otherwise you wind up with ultra-bad neck and shoulder tension that will send you skyrocketing to the moon and back with a massive headache that fouls up your holiday plans)
