Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
It is said that the eyes are the reflection on one’s soul. When Grace saw Sam’s yellow eyes, she knew he was her wolf. For Twilight lovers, Shiver will be the icing on the cake. Beautifully written, this love story will stick to your heart and loosen you from reality through the very last page. Truly captivating, I’ll name it the Book of the Year.
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
In Shiver, Sam and Grace found each other. Now they must fight to be together. Then there’s Cole, a brand new wolf, whose past brings danger to the whole pack, and Isabel, who lost her wolf-brother, and is now in love with Cole. Romantic, dramatic, charming, and captivating, this is a book that will surely make you cry. For all teenagers or anyone with a thirst for a good story from beginning to end. Linger, is another book you will not be able to put down. Stiefvater writes another winner and I can’t wait for the final installment in The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, Forever, coming July 2011.
