Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater An interesting twist on the werewolf/shape-shifter myth, focusing on a more realistic type wolf rather than the typical angry beast scenario.
The romance aspect of the novel was a bit too sweet for my tastes but it was not enough to make me want to stop reading. I found Sam to be a little too sensitive although I found Grace to be easy to relate to.
The short chapters and changing perspectives made the story progress at a steady pace, keeping it fun and fresh. I enjoyed being able to read both Grace's and Sam's point of view, it gave a wonderful insight into both characters.

Overall it was a nice, easy read with just enough suspense to keep the pages turning.
