Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Genre:  YA Paranormal Romance
Wolves of Mercy Falls Series, Book 1

Description (taken from Maggie Stiefvater's website):
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.

This book is meant for anyone who loves romance.  It reminded me eerily of Twilight, but it doesn't involve vampires.  The romance between Grace and Sam is described beautifully and the story was done well.  But it didn't hold my interest.  Sure, I'm a romantic at heart, but I like there to be more action than what was in this book.

Will I likely continue this series?  Probably.  But before I recommend it to others, I'll warn them that they have to like romance.  If they didn't like Twilight (just the first book, not the series), then they probably won't like this book.  And who knows, maybe the books in the series will get better.
