Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

I guess you can say I got into novels about mythical creatures and your typical love story. I'm glad I finally got my hands on this one. It has your mysterious dark yet handsome boy and your shy-don’t-fit-in type a girl. During the cold winter months Grace gets to see her wolf the one with the yellow eyes. Grace is almost positive that he was the one who saved her when she was attacked by other wolves at the age of nine. Over the years during winter time her yellow eyed wolf returns to her, watching her every move as if waiting for something to happen. When a teenage boy gets killed by the wolves, a hunting party decides to take over. As Grace races back to her house she finds a boy shivering on her back porch. One look at his yellow eyes and she knows this is her wolf in human form. Fate finally brings Sam and Grace together and their love grows strong, But it is only a matter of time before the cold winter weather changes Sam into a wolf forever.
