Book: Linger(The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2)

Why did I read this book?  Because I do try to be as fair as I can. I know writing a book is very hard and a big undertaking and at times when I have looked back on my review of Shiver I have asked myself if I was being fair. So in the name of trying to be fair and do right by the blog I read this book. Which was pretty long so I had best be getting some points for being fair.
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)
Stars: *  1.5



  1. I read the first one and thought it was okay. I read this one and hated it. I will not be reading Forever ever!

  2. I agree- not what real love actually looks like-- but I love the epic love in books- it is my fantasy and high.

  3. that is good to know. thanks for sharing it with us.
    but I just think that is book is a little out there in some ways. but it is funny to read books about love that could not happen in real life some times. I like to read books like that too.but this one is just not one of them... I just can not get in to it or like it. it is..... wrong.

  4. This book was a really good book. I was looking for something really good to read and saw shiver. Right when i saw the title i grabed the book. something was telling me get it so i did. I went home and read the whole thing in one night. The book was so amazing i dont even have words to explain it.

  5. this book is crab, and you don't have words for it because it is trash. you just want to think its love. because all love is is being heart broken and doing what ever you please in the name of it. news flash, thats not what love is. nor should love be that way ever.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be sure to write back as soon as I can so try to check back. and feel free to ask to me any questions you have :)
