Gossip Time...Forever

 I just finished reading Maggie Stiefvater's Forever, the third book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy. I'm a pretty fast reader. If I have the time I can down a book in a day or a day and a half. But, Forever took me quite some time to finish. Why? Because I couldn't handle the tension.

After reading the first two books, Shiver and Linger, I cared too much for the characters. This is how reading Forever was like for me.

Read two to three chapters.
Put book down because my heart was in my throat.
Come back few hours later and read one chapter.
Put book down because I was so mad at certain characters.
Take a few days break then read a few more chapters.
Put book down because I wanted to cry.
Resist the urge to tweet horrible things to Maggie.

I want to summarize this series for you, but there's really no need, when you can go to Maggie's website.

Here, she tells you about Shiver, you can see the many awards its won, and there's a link where you can listen to her read the first two chapters to you.

Here, you can read the summary and see the awards that Linger won, and there's a link where Maggie will read the prologue and chapter one to you.

Here, you can read about Forever AND there's a video of Maggie reading a teaser.

If you're looking for a good series to lose yourself in, Shiver, Linger, and Forever are definitely it.


  1. ...wife is dying to read this one, the final chapter in the saga. I read Shiver, found it cute, a refreshing drama for young readers who are vampired out ;)

    Great post,


    1. Thanks for visiting. Yes, this is a great series for those who are vampired out and for those who aren't.
