Top 10 before 2010: Shiver

by Maggie Stiefvater

I don't know how I could have done a top ten list for this year without a little supernatural romance. Yes, I know there are about 500 vampire-related titles I could have picked from. But, for my money, wolves are where it's at in 2009.

Shiver is the first book in the The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Stiefvater. In it you meet Grace, a high school student who has had a fascination with wolves since she was little. There is one particular wolf that she keeps seeing, she can tell it's him by the color of his eyes. This is not a good time to be a fan of wolves in Grace's town. A popular high school student was recently killed in a strange incident involving a pack and now hunters are preparing to thin the wolves numbers.

When Grace rescues a young man who is injured by a stray hunter's bullet, she feels an instant connection with him. And that's when she notices that his eyes look strangely familiar...

Read Shiver and get ready for a seriously romantic tale that will make you think, Edward who?
