Review: Linger – Maggie Stiefvater

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…
An old review that has been left hanging.

My thoughts:
I have no idea what happened. I could never get into the book. The first 1 was so good, I loved the style. Here, well here the style failed for me. I got annoyed at the feeling that I stood at the outside looking in. I never got warm, I never felt like I was there. I did not like the constant POV changes, 4 were too many in a book like this.
I was never invested in the story, I never cared about these two, or Isabel and Cole. But most of all nothing at all happened. It was a long fever dream where most of the time was spent “oh I love you, I miss you” etc etc. If someone would ask me what happened I would say that Grace and Sam thought about each other, Cole was dealing with his change and Grace’s parents got mad, cos that was it (edit: and if you would ask me now, months later I would say that I can’t remember anything..except for a rockstar.)
Conclusion:
It was still ok, it was just not.. interesting.

    Hey how could you not love Cole, B? πŸ˜‰ There isn't much action in this trilogy but Maggie's writing is just excellent.
