Eagerly awaiting Linger's release...
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater isn't on the list because it hasn't been released yet.
Actually I think I listened to it, and I wasn't crazy about the narrator. Yeah, it was a guy who couldn't do a female voice or any other accents for that matter....too bad.
I was really excited to read this book, but when I picked it up, the book just wasn't for me. If you want to read the in depth reasons why I couldn't get into it, here it is: http://teacherwritebookaholicohmy.blogspot.com/2011/07/shiver-burn-and-crumble-w...
And apparently, I'm not the only reader who thought Shiver was a complete disappointment.
*Although I know that is quite a realistic attitude in teens so . . .
The inclusion of two new character voices in Linger reenergised the series for me. Overall, Linger was still quite lackluster, but the breaks away from Sam or Grace's POVs were definitely welcome.
I enjoyed Shiver more than Twilight also, and found the writing fluid enough that I could lose myself in it, even if it was predictable and fairly static. Solid teen romance, if not great paranormal literature.
