Book: Linger(The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2)
My thoughts one it? They are a lot like my thoughts on book 1 ( Shiver). When I read this book I do not feel the love between Sam and Grace. It is not real love to me. I found myself feeling hopeless and like love was out of reach and never going to happen. And that no matter what you do life is going to kick you down so you might as well stay down. At points I found myself thinking that maybe Romeo and Juliet had the right idea in the end. Because if I was Sam or Grace I would have started to feel that way. If you wanted me to tell you a book with a fairy tale paranormal love story that was good I would give Beastly a try. This book was in someways better than Shiver. Not much better . But that does not make this book or Shiver a good book. The new character I felt help add to the story that like I said was all over the place in the first one. And at least the setting of Mercy Falls was still there and that helped me feel better about the time I spent on this book. And one more thing I would like to say before I rap it up is :I do not like how Grace was with her her Mom and Dad. it was like the Writer was saying " teens if you think you are in love, but your mom and dad don't then do not do what they say". And that is not what we should be telling Teens. I'm sorry but at some point these YA writers have to take a good look at the real world when writing these books.
Was it a wast of time? No, it was not a waste of time for ME. I got to blog about it and I can say that I have read it. I was fair and I gave it a chance.! but do I think you should read it? I would lean with no. Over all I would say its a pass for me.
( YA- 14 and up)
