Shiver
Shiver | Maggie Stiefvater
Grace is fascinated by the wolves in the woods behind her house; one yellow-eyed wolf in particular. Every winter, she watches him, but every summer, he disappears. Sam leads two lives. In winter, he stays in the frozen woods, with the protection of the pack. In summer, he has a few precious months to be human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again. When Grace and Sam finally meet, they realize they can't bear to be apart. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human - or risk losing himself, and Grace, for ever.

YA paranormal romance. It was alright, even though I'm not normally into paranormal reads. But I'm not interested in carrying on with the series, so it's just a so-so for me.

Saturday night.

Started this one today. So sappy and lovesick for a Stiefvater novel, but I‘m still fun and engaging. I‘m very interested to see how I‘ll feel once I‘m finished.

Blh87 I actually really liked this series...cheese and all. 2mo

I really liked this one. But I'm not going to continue with the series. Probably a little bit too much lovey dovey to endure it for two more books ☺️

I adore my kindle, but diving into Shiver felt wonderful. My hands remembered their old pattern of holding. And the smell—so plot appropriate, that I'd find the smell alluring. 🐺🥀📚 This was one of those books I felt a little guilty about but I couldn‘t put it down. I want to feel more mature and read intricate, richly plotted books, but, whelp I loved this book 😂
Q - Oh, oldest new question: Paper or ebook?

jenniferajanes Welcome to Litsy! 🎉📚 E-book because I can carry my library everywhere, and I have no room to store physical books since a major downsizing several years ago. Also, my maturing eyes appreciate that I can adjust the font size. 😂 4mo
RiverKScottWrites Thanks! I sort of just stumbled on here and love it! 😍 I love love love my ebooks. Also they‘re cheaper 😉 4mo
Lynnsoprano Welcome to our Litsy family! Great first post. I‘m about 50-50. We‘re trying to pare down our library, because we just don‘t have the space. So, to get a new physical book, I have to let go of an old one. Ebooks, I don‘t have that problem 😄 4mo

RiverKScottWrites @Lynnsoprano Paring down with physical books seems to be the name of the game. I had to do that too — then one day I walked in to find my bookshelf *organized* my boyfriend wanted to surprise me. The horror! 😂 (edited) 4mo
wanderinglynn Paper. Only the kindle when traveling. Even then I usually have 1 or 2 physical books with me before I get the Kindle out. There‘s just something about holding a book in your hand. Plus I remember things much better when I‘ve read them from paper vs. on a screen. 4mo
RiverKScottWrites @wanderinglynn Ohhh that‘s interesting about remembering things more on paper. I‘ll have to think about whether this is true for me too 🤔 4mo
wanderinglynn This article from Scientific American explores some of the studies done on reading comprehension: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/reading-paper-screens/ 4mo
RiverKScottWrites @jenniferajanes Thanks! I sort of just stumbled on here and love it! 😍 I love love love my ebooks. Also they‘re cheaper 😉 4mo
RiverKScottWrites @wanderinglynn Aha! Thank you. I‘ll check this out 4mo
jenniferajanes @lroseriver Yes, I love it when ebooks go on sale. ereaderiq.com will send you an email when a book on your list goes down in price. 4mo

RiverKScottWrites @jenniferajanes What?! I have to check out that service. I‘m a BookBub lover for sure, but that sounds great 🙏 4mo
jenniferajanes @lroseriver Definitely check it out. They don‘t have every book listed, but you can follow prices on many, many books for Kindle. 4mo
jenniferajanes @lroseriver 😊📚🌹 4mo
rretzler Welcome to Litsy. I think I prefer Kindle, easier to hold and I can carry around an entire library. Plus, I can read in the dark without having a light on. I do like the feel of books and being able to thumb through them and also being able to skip back and forth. Also, with a Kindle, I don‘t need to leave my house to buy or borrow a book! Book Gorilla is another service that provides a list of discounted ebooks. Plus The Portalist, too! 4mo
RiverKScottWrites @rretzler Hi! Thanks for the welcome. Cool tip about the other services. Yeah, I love love love discounted ebooks. That‘s a good point about kindle working in the dark. My partner likes that part too, as I don‘t have to bother him 😉 4mo

I'm clearly not the intended audience for this. I normally like YA but not this one. I should have read it 10 years ago when I thought Twilight was good.

I have only discovered Stiefvater this year and enjoyed her stories. I had heard such good things about this one. I was disappointed.

WhatThePuck The Raven Cycle was her best. IMO. 7mo
Sarz @WhatThePuck yes! I have read the first two and thought they were great. 7mo

This isn't a badly written book, but if you like your paranormal romance heavy on the latter and light on the former, this might be more your jam. This version of werewolf mythology is pretty interesting, but the characters themselves didn't interest me much at all. We learn nearly nothing about them over the course of the book, the romance is predictable, and the questions I wanted answered were left in the air. Unlikely to continue the series.

WhatThePuck Her other series was so much better that this one was kind of a let down. It took time and separation for me to think nicely of it and give it another shot. Lol. 7mo
jmtrivera @WhatThePuck I've heard good things about her other books, so it bums me out just a little that this is the one I happened to run into first. But I liked the supporting characters a lot, so I'm not giving up on her yet. ☺ 7mo

The tagged book is the first in a series. I have reread them so many times I've lost track of how many times! It's a beautiful but sad series. I just love Maggie's writing.

I had been looking forward to reading this book since my primetime “Twilight” days (P.S. how many times did she reference that in this book??”
.
Did I think it was the best YA paranormal romance ever? No. But I did really enjoy the writing, and the new take on werewolf mythology
.
Can I just ask: what is with all of these teens having abusive/ neglectful parents?

4/5 stars. The writing is so poetic and moving. The narrators seemed to nurture the words, and the cold seemed like a character in itself. ❄❄❄ Beautifully done. There were times that it felt like the story was dragging, but the end picked up nicely. It had an HEA, but it was really abrupt, which I wasn't crazy about. But I'd still recommend it!

Guess who's out of her reading slump ! 💃🏻

I reckon I would've devoured this if I read it when I was younger, but as an older reader I found it a bit messy and all over the place. BUT, I still really enjoyed the story and I'm curious to continue with Grace and Sam 😍🐺

I loved this book. I know it's part of a series so really I shouldn't expect a perfect ending with no cliffhangers but that's exactly what I got. Yeah, there are unanswered questions but nothing dire. I loved the book but I am left wondering what will happen in the next?

Tanzy13 I thought the whole series was pretty great and the authors other books are also good 😊📚 2y
