Book 45-Linger By Maggie Stiefvater

Linger is the second book of Maggie Stiefvaters series dealing with teen life and werewolves. This book was an intriguing read with a slow and steady pace in the writing. The writing was enough to keep you interested, but not overwhelm you. I actually found myself wanting to read this book...I just had to know what was happening with Sam and Grace, the two main characters in the story.

I really can't tell you to much about this story as it is a series, and if I say to much it will not only spoil this book, but the first one as well! All I can tell you is Grace is getting sick, and only Sam can help her, but everyone is against the relationship they have created.

I am not a lover of teen urban fantasy, but I do find I am becoming a slight fan (who doesn't love a vampire or a werewolf, when they're portrayed as amazingly hot males??). It's nice to break away from the usual blood and guts I wallow in, to sit back and take it easy with a simple read that can really pull at your heartstrings (almost cried at the end of this one).

I am now reading Beautiful Creatures, which was recommended by the authors of the Reading Teen blog (which I follow as I have teens and young readers in the house. Plus it gives me some good reads for the future).

Till next time!


  1. I want to read this book so badly, but I LOVED Shiver and I'm afraid nothing else will ever measure up. Sigh.

  2. Trust me...this one measures up :) I actually liked thos one better than Shiver
