Review: Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2)
by Maggie Stiefvater
Pages: 416
Publisher: Scholastic
Pub date: July 20th 2010

Grace and Sam must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping dangerous secrets. For Sam, it means grappling with his werewolf past ...and figuring out a way to survive the future.

But just when they manage to find happiness, Grace finds herself changing in ways she could never have expected...


I've read this a while ago but don't really know how to write this review now. Anyway, here it goes.

Sam and Grace are finally together. But when new problems arise they don't know what to do. Beck's gone and never will turn back to a human again and he has left new wolves for Sam to look after. One of the new wolves, Cole, is weird. He picked to be a wolf. He likes to be not human but when he meets Isabelle he doesn't know if he wants to be a wolf anymore. Grace is sick with a high fever and she knows what's coming. Sam is finally free but there are still bits and bobs to sort out. With everything is going bad like this Sam and Grace are caught together in her room. Sam doesn't know what to do. Grace doesn't know what to do. Cole doesn't know what to do. Isabelle doesn't know what to do. But it's there somewhere in the back of their heads that they do know what they need to do.

You know when the book is so slow paced that you're flicking through it every 5 second? Yep. That's what you do when you read Linger. Maggie doesn't leave you disappointment after Shiver. With everything going good there always has to be problems.

The new characters in this book are interesting and i also love the new POVs of Cole and Isabelle. Right now, for some reason, i am favouring Cole and Isabelle over Grace and Sam. I can't wait to see what happens between Cole and Isabelle in Forever.

And the million dollar (I can't say pounds. Dollars sound cooler.) Question is: When will she turn into a wolf? Linger kept on teasing you with every page on Grace becoming a wolf. I couldn't stop thinking about it.

I highly recommend Linger. I can't wait to read Forever. I hope it doesn't disappoint me.

My rating:


Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1): Review.

Side not: I found the website for this series and it's pretty col. Click HERE to check it out.

About the author:

All of Maggie Stiefvater's life decisions have been based around her inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pajamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor, or technical editor (all of which she's tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists and artists. She's made her living as one or the other since she was 22. She now lives an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia with her charmingly straight-laced husband, two kids, two neurotic dogs, and a 1973 Camaro named Loki.

  1. I know I kept feeling like Grace was going to turn and Sam kept ignoring it. I love Cole and Isabelle. I hope you enjoy Forever. I felt like the ending wasn't as wrapped up as I would have liked. It was a bit sad too :-( But a great trilogy! Sam and Grace are really adorable together.

    1. Thanks for the look out! I hope that i enjoy reading Forever as well. =D

  2. Great review! This was a pretty good series overall. I don't remember it being slow paced though but it's been a while. All I know is that the ending is left very open-ended (of the series I mean) so lot of people really dislike it. I didn't love it but I think book 3 is my fav! Can't wait to see what you think!

  3. Yes!! I'm not the only one who favored Cole! I adore Cole he was my favorite in Linger and Forever. I just loved him!! Great review!!
