Review: Werewolves, romance and a lot of coffee drinking. That about sums up my encounter with Linger by Maggie Stiefvater. As far as the story line goes anyway. Almost. There were a few more things within the book but those were the three things that stuck out the most in my mind when reading Linger by Maggie Stiefvater.
That being said, I can also say that I’m not really a fan of werewolves, I read Shiver because it was at my library and then when Linger was at the library I picked it up too. So I wasn’t a huge fan of the storyline itself.
I liked Isabel’s voice. There was just something about it that stood out among any of the characters. I thought that it was good that Maggie mixed things up a bit by introducing the viewpoints of Cole and Isabel. It was nice for a change because while I like Grace, I’m not so keen on Sam.
One thing I absolutely loved about Linger was Maggie Stiefvater’s writing style. She is a truly amazing writer and she just seems magical in the way she writes. I think that’s what makes me want to read this series in the first place. I love her writing so much and I think I’ll be trying my hand at her other series.
Linger had both its good and bad things but I think that Maggie Stiefvater’s writing is amazing and if you have some spare time Linger is worth a read.
