I had a look at the magazine from Thalia today and came across a Maggie Stiefvater book that immediately caught my eye. I think, but am not certain, that Shiver is a YA book, not my cup of tea usually, but the plot sounded quite good and the amazon reviews are all raving about it.
This is the blurb: Grace is fascinated by the wolves in the woods behind her house; one yellow-eyed wolf in particular. Sam leads two lives. In winter, he stays in the frozen woods. In summer, he has few months to be human. Grace and Sam finally meet and realize they can’t bear to be apart. Sam must fight to stay human – or risk losing himself, and Grace, for ever.
Doesn’t this sound totally romantic? I am melting away here. I’ll have to give it a try. Just for the cover alone I’d love to buy the German translation, but no, I’ll go for the original.
The German title once more has nothing to do with the original. “Nach dem Sommer” means “After (the) summer”.
