10/10 is it just me - why am I having such a hard time getting through this book?

10/28 gave up - returned book to Library. maybe I'll give it a second chance another time. ( )

I really like this story. The world that Maggie created is really interesting and honestly feels like reading the Jacob story in Twilight but just about Wolves and I love that.
I loved the characters again. I'm still so in love with Grace and Sam. I HATE Grace's parents and I was so happy she ran away and moved out. I am not a fan of Isabel's still but I found Cole to be redeeming near the end. Honestly the characters are all just so broken and well written.
I'm a bit hesitant about the end, I liked it but im not sure how I feel about the events or what is going to happen because of it so book 3 should be interesting to be honest.

When I read Shiver, I found a story that looked pretty good. It wasn't a favourite, but it was good. Good enough for me to buy the sequel.

However, Linger still didn't meet the expectations I had for this series. It took me a month to read this book, and that is very rare for me. When it comes to books I like, it usually takes three days - tops - for me to read it.

When I sat down to read Linger, I wasn't hooked. Nothing reached out, grabbed me, and pulled me in. I was actually bored. So, I put it aside to pick up when I was ready. When I did pick it back up, I made myself push through the boring stuff. It did get more interesting, but the climax wasn't until the very end.

Grace's transformation was probably the most interesting thing in the whole story. No, I don't mean her physical one, but her emotional one. She starts out as the good girl. The one who wouldn't break the rules or go against her parents. Then, she turns into a person who throws off the bowlines and sails away from the safe harbor. She sailed straight into rocky seas.

Sam...I like Sam. I always have, but not in the crazy fan girl way. I'd love to have the guy as a friend. I felt that he also changed a lot in this book, more than just becoming human and accepting it. He seemed much milder.

Cole wasn't a necessary addition to the plot, but intriguing none the less. Isabel...I've always liked her. Her bluntness and attitude add a spark of life to the story.

Besides having such a nice array of characters, I never was able to connect to one. I couldn't find that niche in the story that fit me, the reader. The part that made me feel like I was living it too, not just Grace, Sam, Cole, and Isabel. I think that's why I wasn't into the story as much.

Over all, it was a good story, but not the best. I love Stiefvater's writing style too. She includes such everyday things that anyone can relate to. It was the only thing that I related to the in the story, but I really liked that.
The end of the book was really nicely done, and it's the only thing that makes me want to read the last book. However, I think the ending that the reader is ultimately heading towards is one that we don't expect. ( )

Grace and Sam are both wolves but Sam used to be one and Grace is becoming one. Cole who is also new to the pack is not the person everyone expects him to be. Isabel is helping Grace with her stressful life and she is falling in love with Cole. Cole is wrestling with his own demons to try to be human. Sam has nightmares about his past when he was a wolf. Olivia one of Gracie's friends is a wolf now and Grace and Sam have to hide it from everyone. Olivia is reported missing.
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater is the sequel to Shiver. This book is not as good as Shiver. It is kind of confusing because you switch back and forth between four peoples perspectives. I gave this book 3 stars for that reason and because its interesting in the beginning but gets boring as you go through the book. This book is for teens who like twilight and can't watch it. But it is still a perfect love story. ( )

Book description
The sequel to Shiver follows the story of Grace and the wolves of Mercy Falls.

Maggie says: "It's about after. What happens after you discover there are werewolves in the wood, after you've fallen in love for the first time, after you've lost what you think you can't live without, after you've become someone you can't live with."
