Book Review of Shiver by 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 make 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 we all know ‘first impression is the last impression’ so the first impression of the book title and the book cover was great. The book cover in blue and white color with braches of trees and a wolf standing behind them was very attractive.
The story was about a girl name Grace who has bitten by wolves when she was struggling. That time she notice a wolf with yellow eyes and from that moment she was greatly affectionate by the yellow eyed wolf. The yellow eyed wolf ‘s human name is- Sam, who loved her and use to stare at Grace through the woods. He lived with his pack members Beck who was leader of human wolf members, Ulrik, Paul, Derek, Jack and Shelby. They transforms into wolf in winter and transformed back into human in summer. When Grace and Sam meet each other they have romance and adventure in the book. So I will leave this to the readers.    
 I like the book and I suggest this book for paranormal lovers. My favorite part of the book was when Grace and Sam meet each other and spend their time together. The characters were well executed and fair dealing.  Overall the story was very interesting and never let my expectation down. Recommend to all those who started reading novels coz it was my first novel and enjoy a lot and it was great experience. Even though it is young adult, I think readers from all ages can enjoy “Shiver”.
