I wasn't a fan of werewolves or shapeshifters in general--I was definitely team vampire--until I read Shiver. I love how the story manages to take the idea and the legend of werewolves and make it something that I completely bought into. I love that the werewolves here don't shift at the full moon and become man-beasts, they spend warm weather as people and cold weather as wolves, until the day that they stay wolves forever. It was unique, different, and written in such a way that I believed it whole heartedly. The writing--and the descriptions! especially the setting--was fantastic. I remember reading it and feeling like I needed a sweater and hot chocolate to keep warm. But what I love most about Shiver is the tragic but real romance between Sam and Grace. I loved that they talked and went on a date and did things real teenagers do, and I read the whole book on edge because I couldn't see how they were every going to manage to stay together.
