I grew up with stories and these stories shaped my life - the ones I read and the ones I wrote. Stories still continue to inspire my life. Here are my thoughts on reading, writing, and life.

Book Review - Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
First off, let me admit that I finished this book last night and I already have Grace & Sam withdrawals. And now I have to wait until 2011 for book three? Oh no! Needless to say, I thought this 2nd book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series was an interesting journey. New characters are introduced here and some previous characters take on larger roles. I wanted to see more Grace and Sam together and I'm hoping to see more in book three, but I also understand the need to develop additional characters.
I hate how I'm left hanging at the end of the book, but again I guess that's the whole point of having a book three! There's more at stake here than in book one, and we delve deeper into how the "changes" affect the characters emotionally. We also see consequences unveiled for decisions the characters make. This book is a reality check for the characters.
