Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater (Spoiler-Free)
Let me preface this review by describing how much this book exceeded my expectations: I went into this book convinced that I would enjoy it, but not necessarily love it, and that finishing the series would be a bit of a chore. I had a plan to just read this book as the end of the trilogy and not bother with Sinner. That plan has now been shattered to pieces. I remember really liking book one and book two, but who knew how much I would fall in love with book three? This is why I love series so much. They have time to progress immensely with each book. Maggie Stiefvater is definitely climbing her way up on my favorite authors list, because each book I read by her gets better and better. Now it's time to talk specifically about this book. "That's how I would kiss you, if I loved you.” I might say something here that will blow some people's minds, but I came for Sam and Grace and stayed for Isabel and Cole. Is that a normal opinion to have? Obviously, I still loved the characters of Sam and Grace, but Isabel and Cole legitimately leapt off of the page to me. Especially Cole. Now, I know for a fact that I will be reading Sinner to continue his (and hopefully Grace and Sam's?) story. People shouldn't have to earn kindness. They should have to earn cruelty.
