Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Published 08/08/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               
Forever
Author:          
Maggie Stiefvater
Pages:            
389
Catagory:      
Young Adult, werewolves

The story:


The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater. 

In Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. InLinger, they fought to be together. Now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in

The view of a book addict:
I believe it was a beautiful ending to a beautiful trilogy, although the ending leaves you with a lot of questions. When I started this series I just fell in love with the diffrent view on werewolves. I never read something like this, so I was so happy to find out there would be two more books.
This book is an ending but not the ending of the story because it’s not a “and they lived happily ever afer” kind of story. But I believe that this is a good ending and I don’t think that any other ending would work.
The verdict of a book addict:


A great last book, it made me scream, laugh and cry. If you ask me that’s what makes a good book!

Books I really want: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Published 03/01/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

So on monday I always tell about a book a want really bad, and today that’s Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve read the first book in dutch because I just didn’t know there would be any other books after the first one. So shiver for me was translated into “Fluister”. But after visiting a forum were they told me there would be more books I decided to switch to English because most of the time it takes ages before the book comes out in dutch.

So after reading the second book in English I got the chance to meet Maggie for the translated version of the book. There were a lot of big publishing people but she made time for me and my friend and after that I just loved her more!! And that’s one of the reasons I can’t wait for the next book to come out, meeting her made me even love her more. And although she didn’t tell me anything about the book I have a feeling that something I might not like is going to happen.

But the biggest reason is that I want to know what’s going to happen to all the characters, will they find what they looking for and get the chance to live the lives they always wanted to. I just hope that I’m going to love the ending, but I have a feeling I will! So now I have to wait until July before I can read the ending of this story.

So I hade the pleasure to meet this wonderful author of the wolves of mercy falls series. I got the first book in the series last yar for christmas and I really loved the story. The fact that the wolves didn’t turn because of the moon but because of the temperature.

So I was really happy when I found out there would be more books in the series and I couldn’t wait for the next book to come out. So this year the second book came out and it even got translated in dutch! Through her facebookpage I found out that Maggie was going to visit the Netherlands but I couldn’t find a location or a venue. After talking about it with my best friend we decided to send an e-mail to the publicist, they adviced us to contact the dutch publicist so we did. And then the waiting began, and to our suprise I found a response in my inbox. They told us Maggie wouldn’t do a signing but because we went to all this trouble to find out we were invited to the official releaseparty of the dutch translation!

Well of course me and my friend went there and we were so nervous. At first we didn’t know if we could just walk in there but we were lucky someone started a speech about the book. So we decided to just walk in and stand on the back of the room for a little while. And then someone approached us and asked us who we were. So we told him that who we were and that we e-mailed them about Maggie and we got invited to the launch party. After talking to him and the women that translated the book for a while the big moment was there we got to meet Maggie.

My english isn’t that bad but with Maggie in front of me I couldn’t say anything I was so nervous! Luckily Maggie talks a lot so we talked about her books and about our personal lives. We even got a free book, and Maggie signed it for us! After we talked for a while we took a picture with her and then it was time to leave for home again. I held the book tight all the way home!

After meeting her I loved her even more! So that’s why she is the first author I write about, she is my all time favourite author!

Review: Linger by Maggie stiefvater

Published 23/11/2010 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Goodreads summary:

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…


Review:


When I first started this book I didn’t think it would ever be better than shiver. But I was wrong! This book just gets me from the first page to the last. It makes me smile and it makes me cry. A very good second book in a series.

The new characters in the book are amazing and I really want to know how their lives go on after this book. It’s really fun to read the book and find you’re actually reading the story from four diffrent points of view. I really loved how the relationships between the diffrent characters grew and became more complicated. And the ending just killed me, why did it have to be so sad? I can’t wait for the next book to come out.
