Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

As you know by know paranormal lit is not really my thing, but I received a reading copy of Forever and felt obliged to try it.

I haven't read the first 2 books in the trilogy, but the story was pretty easy to pick up. Wolves and teen angst is the short version!

It was well written; quite engaging in fact. The story moves between the four main characters - which allows the author four times the usual opportunities to delve deep inside the heart, soul and psyche of teenage romance and heartache.

The covers of the 3 books are gorgeous and the coloured fonts are a nice touch (but can be difficult to read, especially when tired).

Paranormal lit is still not my thing. But if you loved Twilight and you thought the Bella/Edward/Jacob angst was wonderful and romantic, then Stiefvater's trilogy could be for you.

P.S. There are sexual references throughout the book.

  1. I've read this compelling series in less than a week and know I'm looking back with pure awe. My soul is being punctured to know that this love is dead. A thousand ways to say good-bye, but none are breathed without a twinge in the heart.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
