Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater

This is one of my favorite book series ever in the world to read. I have always had an obsession about wolves, and I love this series and recommend people to read it.

Shiver Book 1
The dark blonde haired and brown eyed Grace has always watched and obsessed over the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed grey-furred wolf —her wolf— has a chilling presence she cannot seem to live without since her attack by the wolves six years ago meant her meeting with her wolf. Since the incident, something happened between the two, a connection the grew every winter when the wolf would come watch Grace as she settle in her yard; often reading or doing homework and watching him back all day.Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, inside frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl, the girl he saved, the one who would change him in the near future. In summer, he gains a few precious months of being human; of having an opportunity to talk to the girl he saved, but not having the courage to do it until the cold makes him shift back again. However, incidents like being shot and cared for by Grace can change a lot.Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. Is it her wolf? It has to be. Since he was shot and suddenly shifted, Grace hides Sam in her house and eventually love comes, and Sam becomes Grace's boyfriend. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human— or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

This book series is something I liked. I liked the originality Maggie brought to wolves. I found myself skimming some pages because they tend to get overly descriptive for example five pages on making quiche, but I liked this particular series up until I read the last book. It was so depressing I just wanted to curl up with a bottle of wine and cry. In this book you can really feel the love Sam and Grace have for each other and I love how it was written in two point of views which helps to understand their feelings more. The last book in the trilogy was the worst, and it is not a usual way for an author to end a book series it was too depressing. If it's labeled paranormal romance, it has a funny way of showing it by the way she ended the series. She literally tortured these poor characters to the end! Ugh I was so frustrated let alone, when Forever ended on a such a huge cliffhanger which is absolutely no way to end a book series.
