Book Review: Forever

The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Shiver trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater...


When Sam met Grace, he was a wolf and she was a girl. Eventually he found a way to become a boy, and their love moved from a curious distance to the intense closeness of shared lives.


That should have been the end of their story. But Grace was not meant to stay human. Now she is the wolf. And the wolves of Mercy Falls are about to be killed in one final, spectacular hunt.


Sam would do anything for Grace. But can one boy and one love really change a hostile, predatory world? The past, the present, and the future are about to collide in one pure moment - a moment of death or life, farewell or forever.

Yani's Review:
In my six months blogging, this has been the hardest review for me to write. Why? Because there are no words to describe my love for this book (and series) other than I LOVED IT! Beautiful writing, heartbreaking characters, an epic love story. That to me is the Shiver series, and what the craziest part of all this is I shouldn't even have liked the first one. I have always been able to recognize beautiful and lyrical writing, but I have never been a big fan of it. I like faster paced books. Insta-love connections bother me. All these things should have kept me from loving the series, but Shiver drove its way into my heart, wrapped its tiny limbs around and now won't let go.

I believe this is the first series where I have given every book 5 Stars (see Shiver and Linger reviews). I do understand why other people didn't enjoy it as much, but I HEART it so much, I am getting teary eyed all over again. I have nothing else to say, but I shall share with you a screenshot of my reactions from my goodreads, and my fave quote of the book...
My Review in a Tweet:

I agree that her writing is magical, but this book won't be getting 5 stars from me. It did get better, but the first 100+ pages felt like filler. I'm so sad about not liking it as much as others. :(

Yani said...

aww I'm sad you didn't like it as much, but I can understand, it did take me a while to get through.

Smash Attack said...
