Review: Shiver

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.

As many of you know, I didn't start this blog until September, 2010. Before that, I was a read-a-holic and wouldn't give up a book until I was finished. I had checked out Shiver and took one look at the book and decided I would hate it. I didn't even read it! They tell people not to judge a book by it's cover, but I think I do that every week! See? We all have flaws..Mine is book cover :O But I re-checked it out and finished it in one night! I'm not saying this will happen to you, but DO NOT judge a book by it's cover!
Anyway...I'm sure you guys want to hear an actual review! So here goes..
When I first started reading the book, I thought that it would be short page for Grace, short page for Sam, short page for Grace, short page for Sam. Just because of how it laid out. Ha-ha could've fooled me! But I continued on reading and found the longer pages and I was happy! The book brought a whole 'nother world to life. Grace's.
I loved Grace! Not literally, you know, but I still loved her. She was soo much like me, it was scary. Although I don't  have blond hair, I have brunette..Anyway..She loves books, I loves books. She has those two best friends, I have my two best friends. We had the same attitude and everything. It was kind of freaky..
I loved Sam, too. The whole book came to life and I felt like I was Sam, and I was Grace. How much they loved each other, even though he was a werewolf and she was a human! Sam was willing to die to stay human with her. It kind of makes me wonder what will happen in Linger..What turn of unfortunate news will happen? Does he stay human? We all know he isn't going to die. And neither is Grace. Trust me, pick up a book that's all about romance, that's the first in the series, they might get close to dying, but they will survive. It's so predicting. But the events never are. . .
Did Shiver give you shivers? Continue the series with Linger.
