While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction.

Finished: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver  - Maggie Stiefvater

"Urban Fantasy" stories about werewolves (and other supernatural beings) are a dime a dozen. Shiver's unusual mechanics, where after an initial acclimatization period, temperature the controlling mechanism for whether the were is in wolf or human form definitely was intriguing.  While at first I was impatient with the constant angst over the developing relationship between Grace and Sam and the pre-occupation with Sam's impending doom, by the end of the story I found myself tearing up at crucial moments.

Shiver made an excellent Audiobook.

 

While I only found Maggie Stiefvater this year with the release of The Raven Boys, I will definitely be taking the time to read the rest of her back catalog.
