Book Review: Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater


For years, Grace has been watching the wolves that live in the woods behind her house. Her wolf, a gorgeous yellow eyed wolf, has stood at the end of her garden, and Grace cannot seem to live without him.
Sam has lived two lives. His human life, and his… not so human life. In winter, every winter, Sam transforms into a beautiful yellow eyed wolf, protected by the trees. In the summer, he gets a few precious months of normal human life, before the weather gets colder, forcing him to shift back to his wolf form.
When Grace meets a mysterious yellow eyed boy, the familiarity between him and the wolf astonishes her. It can’t be him. But it seems like it is him. But, as winter approaches, Sam must fight to stay human for as long as he can, as shifting may risk losing his human self, and Grace forever.

This book is amazing. Having never read anything by Maggie Stiefvater before, I didn’t really know what to expect, especially as I hadn’t really read any sort of werewolf/shifter book before. But I will definitely be reading some of Maggie Stiefvater’s earlier titles, as well as some more werewolf/shifter books. This book flows really well, is written brilliantly, and will just make you want to read right to the end and then start again, all at once. Can Sam stay human for long enough, or will the cold change him back too soon? Find out in this supernatural love story, full of love, friendship, betrayal, humour, sadness, and most of all, beauty.

I give it 5 Feet!

  3. I didn't like this book very much. I found it a bit slow and the love story was a bit unrealistic. Personally, I don't think I'm going to read any of Maggie Stiefvater books again.

    But that's just my opinion.

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever!

She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
