Shiver Author Maggie StiefvatW 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 forev read 4 | 2020Reading this book is like being swallowed whole by winter It always brings back so many memories and I just 🥺 I leave with a lot of feelings Sam's sweet softness will never stop breaking me into pieces and just the themes of holding onto yourself your humanity being shaped by circumstance and being a product of your environment are intricately explored I fully love it It is so slow and thoughtful and loving And the sensory elements It has me craving winter and peppermint and woodsmoke and sweatersI also listened to the audio this time and really loved both the narrators On 2 x the speed because my brain needs things fast 😌Reading older YA does make me wince with the occasional problematic word choices of course I'm definitely glad Stiefvater's later books have grownread 3 | 2018So I hadn't read this inwoah 4 years? Which means my sieve brain and I remembered next to nothing I didn't even remember how Sam and Grace finally met THERE WAS BLOOD SO ROMANTIC and overall reading this was just like coming home to a really warm and cosy chair with soft blankets and the warmest hot chocolate and I justI have so many feelings I absolutely love ALL Stiefvater books and every time I reread I remember why She just has a way of totally drawing you into the story I was just absorbed by werewolves and book lovers and grief and wanting and the excitement of life and the fear of lose And it was so so beautifully writtenAlso Sam is the softest and I love himAnd shout out to the food scenes which I didn't pay attention to until this time But there is so much food And it's all so symbolic in how it's portrayed Sam and Grace having candies and peppermint hot chocolates together as their first real date vs Sam as a baby werewolf learning to kill rabbits and crying Grace cooking for herself in a lonely cold house vs Sam making Grace porridge And that WHOLE SCENE where they peel back Isabel's ice princess snarly sharp walls and she has fun making mushroom omelettes with them Let's just say food is important here and I love love these scenesread 2 | 2014I read it first about say 2 years ago nowand I've just read Sinner so I wanted to reread Shiver because I miss them I'll be honest mostly Isabel and Colebut I do love Sam and Grace Second time round my thoughts? I noticed compared to Maggie Stiefvater's writing now Shiver was a lot thicker on description and action less prose The description still has the beautiful woah moments but not as often as say The Raven Boys or The Scorpio Races And I also noticed that Sam and Grace literally ran into their relationship They knew of each other but not really each other Sam is so sweet and unassuming And Grace is so black and white and Vulcan Plus they have the best banter in the world I want to read the second two again now Ah if I had to answer the uestion what's your guilty pleasure reading it'd probably be rereading this series I thoroughly enjoyed it and was only skimming a few pages because I wanted to get back to the dialogue It's definitely the strongest part The characters all just shine in this book Like even the briefest mentions of Isabel she's already popping with personality even before she comes over to make uiche The only characters who lacked actually ironically were Grace's two BFF Olivia and Rachel They felt like cookie cutters the introvert and the extrovert and Grace's need to make them stickbut she forgets that in her need for Sam's wolfish musk But hey it's Sam It's understandable

Maggie Stiefvater ☆ Shiver Author Maggie Stiefvater Pdf

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 againNo Lovely lyrical and achingly sad Shiver is introspective than most YA books and is sometimes criticized for being too slow or wordy but I found it to be beautifully written tragic and a gorgeous take on werewolf lore Sam's desperate struggle to hold onto his humanity is incredibly poignant and his heartrending relationship with Grace is deeply emotional and sweet It's a book that makes me cry every time I read it Sam cupped my face in his hands and looked me in the eyes His eyes were yellow sad wolf mineThese stay the same Remember that when you look at me Remember it's me PleasePS this book is NOTHING like Twilight despite the inevitable comparisons because of the subject matter It's in a class all its own

Moving on Grace is 17 and in love with a golden eyed wolf that saved her when she was 11 and too weak and insipid to fight back for herself as wolves were attempting to consume her flesh Unable to think of anything but her love for a wild dog Grace is forever seeking out her wolf trying to catch a glimpse of him or possibly make friends with him a la White Fang only in a romantic way Sounds disturbing right? Well brace yourself cause this wild dog is eually obsessed and in love with Grace either due to the fact that she looked like an angel while lying in the snow nearly catatonic and helpless or because his wolf self likes the stink of fear and uselessness What follows is a story about how these two characters defy lame and dare I say “borrowed” werewolf lore meet cuddle spout lame poetry and construct sad song lyrics The best part of this book is the cover and the font which sadly had nothing to do with the author There was one well done scene and the description was able to establish the temperature of the setting which was pertinent to the plot But the very thing that the author was good at description was one of the very worst things about Shiver I have yet to meet and I pray that I never will a guy that describes himself as a “leaky womb” I don’t even know what that means I guess he felt like a menstruating uterus which seems very strange I have never eaten in a kitchen that smells like easy survival nor liked the smell of armpit or heard a guy call anything “horribly cute” much less a pom pom hat call me crazyAlso I am sure this author doesn’t like having her book compared to Twilight but it seems as though she was attempting to cash in on its success Aside from the whole temperature angle the werewolf lore in this book reeked of Stephanie Meyer’s werewolf lore which was ludicrous not to mention a major bore fest Grace might as well have been a Bella cutout though somehow not as interesting which is a whole new low that I never would have thought possible And Sam well he is the werewolf version of Edward only lacking in confidence swoonworthiness and talentI’m not going to lie I had some aww moments I’ve already mentioned there being one very well done scene and sometimes I would catch myself nearing a teary eyed state when Sam would talk about his dread of the impending winter But those moments were usually massacred by extreme ridiculousness childishness pretentious poetry and random outbursts of nonsensical song lyrics that were impossible to ignore So YA readers do yourself a favor and avoid this book like the plague otherwise you may experience bruising of the retinas sore teeth and burnt fingers from turning all those frosty pages Other side effects may include side stitches from laughing at extreme ridiculousness random eye twitching and scratchy throat from asking WTH? times than I can count
