Shiver, by Maggie Stiefvater
The first book of the Shiver trilogy is very captivating. Once I took in the first chapter, I could not put it down. I was gripping the book to find out what would happen next. Maggie Stiefvater's novels do not disappoint. Shiver is a mix of fiction and teen romance. The use of science instead of "magic" was more original in my opinion. As I read, I felt that this element made the book feel more realistic even though it was a fictional novel. Unfortunately, I did not continue to read the rest of this series after the second book, Linger, because it was just not to my liking.
