Review: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Grace has always had a strange connection with the yellow eyed wolf who roams in her backyard. When a wolf attack on a high school student sends her town into a panic, she runs into the woods in an attempt to save her yellow-eyed wolf. When she is met by a yellow-eyed boy named Sam she knows that he is her wolf and it's love at first sight. The narration alternates between Grace and Sam as they revel in the fact that they can finally be together and panic as they try to prevent Sam from turning back into a wolf forever.

If you like romance of the supernatural variety, Twilight (or wanted to like Twilight but thought it fell short), or wolves than this one is definitely for you.

Still need more convincing? Check out the book trailer:
