Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Oh, how I have loved this trilogy. So, so much. Forever was an amazing book. And I'm just so happy that I read these books. Because they now have a special place in my heart. Especially Sam. Sigh. I really loved Forever. Such a good final book. Though I did wish that it had never ended. Didn't want it to be over.

What I loved the most about Forever was Sam. Because Sam is beyond amazing. He is perfect. He is so sweet and adorable and kind and loving and sad and broken. He is the perfect boy. At least to me. And I love him with all my heart. Sigh. I just want to read more about Sam. <3 I can never get enough of him.

Grace is also pretty amazing in this book. I do adore her. And I loved reading about her; as she is very different in this book. Made it more exciting. But also more heartbreaking. Damn it. But so good. Sigh. But her parents! I cannot. I hate them so much. Especially her dad; for punching Sam at the end of Linger. I cannot. And I will not ever forgive him for it. I just didn't like their ending. Their compromise. I didn't approve. I didn't want Grace to have anything to do with them. Sigh. But I get it. Kind of. I also liked that we saw a little bit more of Rachel in this book. Pfff. I lie. I did not like Rachel. I didn't like that she also believed that Sam had killed Grace. My god. I just. How could she think that? It makes me so angry. So yeah. I didn't like Rachel that much, lol. I missed Olivia, though. Well. Maybe not. I honestly didn't like her much in Shiver.

Anyway. Forever is such an amazing book. Such amazing characters. Such an amazing story. But mostly, I loved the romance. The romance is what made me the most excited about these books. Though, of course, the plot is very, very good. Anyway. It broke my heart that Sam and Grace wasn't together much in the beginning. But it made sense. But still. I wanted them together all the time, lol. But then they get together. And it is beautiful. All the time. They are perfect. Sigh. That shower scene; so good, hih :D

There are other characters I liked in this book. Like Cole and Isabel. I loved Cole much more in Forever. He got better. For the most part. <3 But Isabel. Hmph. I didn't love her that much. She's just so cold and mean sometimes. And she acted way too late near the end of the book. Sigh. But I still ship her and Cole together. As they would make an awesome couple. I just want her to be kinder to him. As he is pretty awesome. And while I love Grace and Sam the most; Cole and Isabel weren't too bad to read about ;p

But there were also characters I did not like. As in Shelby. Not too much about her, but oh. How I hated her. Like that past scene with the bird. Shudders. Awful. My poor Sam. Sniffs. And Isabel's dad! I cannot deal with him. Such an awful person. Grrr. Okay, fine, he might only be awful when it comes to the wolves. But even so. Killing all the wolves is just not okay. So yeah. I did not like him at all. But then there is Beck. I loved learning more about him. But what he did to Sam.. it is just not okay. It isn't.

There is so much happening in Forever. Yet also not enough. I just did not want this book to end. I wanted more and more and more. Yet I also got enough. Kind of. Hm. I'm not sure. But I do know that I loved the book. I loved reading about Sam and Grace. I loved reading about the wolves. I loved reading about Sam's past. Though I wanted even more of that. And I'm a little bit sad I didn't get to see any of his friends turn back to humans. But it was too early for that. And I'm kind of glad too. It confuses me.

I loved reading about two wolves running together. Finding each other. It was only for a short while, but it was beautiful. It was perfect. Sigh. But yess. I prefer Sam and Grace to be human. They can to much more together as humans :D And they are just too cute. I will not be able to forget about their romance. And I don't want to. They have the best love. And oh. It just makes me so happy to think about. All their sweet moments. I just want to know what happens next after the ending. I need to know. I really do.

But now I am done. These books are done. And I'm a little bit heartbroken about it. I don't want it to be over. But then there is Sinner. And I am very excited to read it next. But I'm also beyond heartbroken that it is about Cole and not Sam and Grace :( Grrr. Hoping there is a little bit about them, still. Fingers crossed. Now I will go hunting for fan art and such, hih. Oh, you perfect books. If you have yet to read Forever, I don't know what you are waiting for. This book was perfect. So amazing. You must read it.


  1. I'm really glad to hear you have loved the whole trilogy, Carina! I think I might just end up binge reading these after Blue Lily, Lily Blue while I wait for more Raven Boys, cause Maggie Stiefvater seems to write everything greatly!

  2. I see you finished the trilogy! Sam is the best, isn't he? He is what every girl in the world deserves - so devoted and kind and gentle. Sad, yes, but there is so much more to him. My heart broke for him so many times, but I'm glad he had Grace. Those two are definitely one of my favorite YA couples. I feel the same about Isabel - she's not my favorite, so I'm a little worried about how I'll feel about her in Sinner. But Cole is awesome. :D
    Lovely review, lady! <3

  3. It's been a while since I read Forever, and I think you enjoyed it a lot more than I did. I remember being an enormous fan of Cole and Isabel, so I'm super psyched for Sinner! Great review :)


  4. Yay! I'm so happy you loved these Carina! I imagined that you would since you love Maggie so much. I can't wait to hear what you think of Sinner next.

  5. Aww, yay! I'm so glad you loved this one too Carina! And I agree, Sam is just the best. He and Grace are so perfect together. :)
