Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

This is your typical love story—girl meets wolf, wolf becomes boy, boy and girl fall in love, boy becomes wolf. Ok, maybe not typical, and you may think you’ve read this one before, but with Stiefvater’s lovely, simple storytelling, what could have been a clichéd werewolf novel is transformed into a tender, thoughtful love story with unique werewolf mythology and two strong, sympathetic characters. This is a great first book in a stellar trilogy.

Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt

Keturah is lost in the woods the day Lord Death claims her as his bride. She spins a tale and Death spares her for the night so he might hear the story’s end the next. So begins this beautifully written tale of a girl trying to find her true love—to save herself and her village. Keturah is a bright, resourceful heroine, devoted to her home and family, and this is a wonderfully sweet story.
