Goodreads Summary:
In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other.
Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace,
this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous
secret about her own well-being. For Sam,
this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.

At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love -- the light and the dark, the warm and the cold -- in a way you will never forget

YAY! I finally came around to this series! This book was WAY better than the first one. Less Sam and Grace awkwardly falling for each other and more story developing! I am actually looking foreword to reading Forever, and then Scorpio Races as well.

What really did this one justice for me was Isabel & Cole. Not only do I totally love their characters, but it was AWESOME to get their POV. The whole book could have been about those two and Id have been just as happy. I am totally pumped to see what happens in Forever! There is just something about Isabel I love. How she found out what was going on in Mercy Falls, tries to help, and gets involved even though she hasn't been bitten. I admire her. Shes definitely evolved from book one and I am totally into it!

Grace has never really done it for me but I am starting to like Sam a lot more too. His constant lyric writing kind of annoys me but I like how he's stepped into Beck's role a bit and I'm hoping to see more of that in book three.

As long as Forever is all about the torturous love between Grace and Sam, and actually has some beef to it, I think I'll like it.

AND THE PRINT WAS IN GREEN! I had no idea, and thought this was awesome.

    I love that you've made the text of your post green to fit with the text in the book. The Wolves of Mercy Falls is a series I've been meaning to read for a while, but I'm not really in the mood for a romance right now. Especially if Sam writes lyrics. Too sappy for me.
