Monday Must Reads!...Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy!

Monday Must Reads! is a feature I created to showcase books that I think you, well, Must Read! (ha!).

Today's Must Read is actually a trilogy--and one that has been around for a bit. I know you've all heard of it, but I only recently picked up these books and read them. Beautiful writing, great story and heartfelt characters make this series a winner. What am I talking about? Why, none other than...

by Maggie Stiefvater

product description from goodreads.com


Sam’s not just a normal boy — he has a secret. During the summer he walks and talks as a human, but when the cold comes, he runs with his pack as a wolf. Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house — but never dreamed that she would fall in love with one of them. Now that they’ve found each other, the clock ticks down on what could be Grace and Sam’s only summer together.


Can Grace and Sam last? Each will have to fight to stay together — whether it means a reckoning with his werewolf past for Sam, or for Grace, facing a future that is less and less certain. Enter Cole, a new wolf who is wrestling with his own demons, embracing the life of a wolf while denying the ties of being human. For Grace, Sam, and Cole, life is harrowing and euphoric, enticing and alarming. As their world falls apart, love is what lingers. But can it be enough?


For Grace, Sam, and Cole, the story continues — only now, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. It’s becoming harder and harder to hold on to one another. In the conclusion to Maggie Stiefvater’s bestselling, breathtaking trilogy, love is the question — and the answer.

Just in case you're one of the few people who have yet to read this series (like I was), trust me when I saw that it is a great one. The perfect combination of romance and paranormal (I'm so jealous of her writing, seriously), The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy doesn't disappoint!


  1. I agree, the writing was beautiful. Although for me, in the second and third book, it was more about Isabel and Cole- I thought they were far more compelling characters. I also waited a long time to read this series, but I'm so glad I did!

  2. Agreed. Maggie's writing is beyond brilliant. The story of Sam & Grace breaks my heart. I love these books so, so much. Glad you finally got a chance to read them!

  3. Quita loves this series! I'll just borrow the books from her. :)

  4. Love this series! So glad you finally read it! :D

  5. I haven't read this series, but I know I have to or Mandie will kill me.

  6. Kate - I agree about Cole and Isabel, and I love them, too!

    Ginger - G! Her writing is SO GOOD, love it. Gonna have to read more of her work!

    Pam - You'll love it! =)

    Mandie - Me too! =)

    Melanie - She can be very persuasive, huh? ;-P

  7. I see these out all the time and am drawn to the covers, but never picked them up yet. What am I waiting for?! Will get them pronto!

  8. Shiver is such a beautiful book, I loved it! I found my self in love with all the characters, but mostly with Sam and Grace. There love story is so amazing yet sad. I must say I've read many books but this book is on my top 10 favorite books. Maggie Stiefvater makes her werewolves so different from anything I've read about werewolves and makes me love it more.I just love this book and I DEFINITLY recommend this book to all teens and even adults if they like to know what there kids are reading.a very cute loving story.I cried and maybe you will too...you'll have to read it to find out...=]
