Title: Linger: Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1)
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Summary: Grace and Sam share a kinship so close they could be lovers or siblings. But they also share a problem.

He worries that eventually his human side will fade away and he will be left howling alone at the lonely moon. A stirring supernatural teen romance
My Thoughts:Maybe it was all the hype about this book but I think I had something else in mind when I started reading this. I thought it was good but maybe a little boring at times. My favourite characters weren't even the main two. I really liked Beck and Isabel. Now they were exciting.
I enjoyed the sad tone of the book. Grace's despair at the end was delightful... in a non sadistic kind of way. I just really enjoy when an author can put me in the characters shoes.
I found the ending a little confusing. I'm not really sure what happened. It all seemed a little rushed. I will definately read Linger. I'm just not anticipating it as much as the other books I've read.
