Oh snap, I never weighed in on Linger! I... liked it? Yeah. I did. It didn't bowl me over the way Shiver did, but the language is still lovely and I'm jealous that Stiefvater can write prose as well as songs. And she's artistically talented as well. That's just not fair. She gets major points for name checking the Gutter Twins, which is lucky because I had to take a few away in relation to Cole and Isabel's relationship. It was pretty hot, but it irked me that Cole took it upon himself to protect Isabel from her own sexuality. That's a classic sticking point with me. The ending was done well, in an Empire Strikes Back Han-frozen-in-carbonite way. I have no idea how Grace's storyline will be resolved, and I'm definitely looking forward to Forever (not that Forever, silly, though what better time to revisit that perennially challenged chestnut).
Happy (?) BBW 2010!Currently reading: Huge by Sasha Paley (here and there); my cousin's astounding manuscript (during my pumping breaks at work); A.S. Byatt's The Children's Book (at night) which is delicious and going by way too fast. Will I finish Little Dorrit before 2011? There have got to be Vegas odds on that by now.
