I really had high hopes for Shiver. This is the story of Grace and Sam,and how Sam tries to stay human for their love.
It was cute but there was nothing interesting about the topic. The book was kind of boring.
Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
I turned every page with hope of action but, nope I liked the characters. Grace was tolarable and Sam was cute. I adored the way Sam lov.
I adored the way Sam loved Grace. But the book was unnecessarily long even for his cuteness. Well, I also liked the writing style. The book was beautifully written, felt like poetry sometimes. I still had higher expectations. Goodreads helps you drytaj track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Refresh and try again.

Jul 04, Kat Kennedy rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Recommended to Kat Kennedy by: A very gender confused world. I started reading this book and a curious thing happened. Suddenly my house was sparkling clean, my bills drgtaj filed away, I started playing Farm Story and reached level 13 in one day, I did my tax, I spent two hours chatting to the chatbott, Jabberwocky Shiver, the story of a girl drastically into beastiality, only to find out her wolf lover was really magie boy.
As I read this book I had the strange urge to lock up my German s I started reading this book and a curious thing happened. As I read this book I had the strange urge to lock up my German sheppard should Grace ever decide to visit my home because she really does fall in love with a dog I can’t even begin to express how creepy her obsession with a wolf is.
I get the whole eternal love thing.
Perhaps Stiefvater was trying to show that Maggi and Grace’s connection transcends all the things love actually isn’t supposed to transcend. Maybe I’m just weird and completely unromantic, but I’ve never looked at Fido and found a kindred spirit. I never passed a dog down the street and found that Mgagie couldn’t be attracted to men because they just weren’t going to cut it for me anymore. So, other than the fact that this book disturbed the fucking hell out of me, bored me to death and dragged on like a visit to the old folk’s home, it was also poorly edited.
The writing wasn’t TOO bad. Some of the poems were down right rubbish, and some of the others were alright. Grace and Sam’s voices were near identical. Oh, and another thing, Sam was annoyingly chaste for way too long. Where were all of these careful, thoughtful boys when I was in high school? It’s a disturbing trend, really.
Maybe I’m just a sucker for bad boys. What is with the sudden need to keep us women in line? If I read one more paranormal, male hunk refuse the supposed love of his life, who is literally flinging her naked body onto him, then I think I’m going to start a convention Give the boy his balls back, please!
The Wolves of Mercy Falls
He complained that a jacket made him look bulky! He wrote a poem about a leaking womb! What teenage boy doesn’t shudder at the thought frhtaj menstrual blood? Chipped nail, PMS cramps? Is he going to stamp his foot and mutter, “Drat!
The Wolves of Mercy Falls – Wikipedia
I can’t believe Jennifer is wearing the same dress as me! I think I might just die! After all, it was kind of nice to read stiefvafer a “stoic” female character and an emotional, gentle male character. But Sam felt and read far too much like a middle aged woman and not like a teenage boy.
I didn’t feel like he was well characterized or fleshed out enough. Sgiefvater all in all, I can’t muster the energy to rant about this book.
It was average on the writing scale. It’s secondary characterization was pretty good but the main characters didn’t do it for me. The plot was SLOW. Her parents were stupid.
I could complain magyie they were unrealistic – but I’ve met some fucked up parents over my life, so I’ll buy that they really could be that moronic. What I will complain about is where they get this amazing and varied social life in a small town. It never explains why Sam’s fate is mysteriously different to Jack’s.
Maybe I’m just stupid I don’t buy that. Was it because he was out in the freezing cold so it kept his temperature reasonable? Wouldn’t that defeat the purpose of giving him a crazy-ass fever? Was it actually because he processed it as a wolf?
Well that doesn’t make stefvater because Grace never changed. And what’s with the dramatic ending? He gets cured and goes home and gets dressed and reads a few books, checks his mail, gives himself a mani and a pedi, goes on a diet, waits for his skin to clear up, buys the perfect set of shoes and THEN tracks down the love of his life who he thought he’d never see again?
How about stumbling through the forest naked and desperately arriving in Grace’s backyard because he can’t believe the complete miracle of dhrtaj cure and can’t wait to have the love of his life back in his arms?
Yeah, that ending makes so much more sense. I don’t get why this is popular. But then, I don’t get why Fallen is popular either. It’s just all beyond me. Now I’m off to see if I can cram the word “balls” into this review anymore.
