Saturday Sneak Peak



It took me one restless night to finish Linger. Let me tell you, it will not disappoint. As you know, it usually takes me a couple days after I finish a book to write the review. I like to let it "simmer" in my thoughts.

The thing is, I couldn't wait for Tuesday to share a teaser with you. Instead, I thought "Why not give everyone a tiny sneak peak?" For those who have yet to read Shiver, I don't recommend reading this. And for those who have, don't worry. This isn't spoilery.

This small section is from one of my favorite Sam and Grace moments. It'a a bit of a flashback, and I'm going to have to cut it short (due to spoilery reason), but I think you'll enjoy it.

Here we go:

"'Do you remember the first time we came up here?' she asked as I sat there, half-alone in the darkness of my closed eyes.

It wasn't a question meant to be answered, so I just smiled.

'Do you remember how you made me close my eyes, and you read me that poem from Rilke?' Grace's voice was closer; I felt her knee touch mine. 'I loved you so much right then, Sam Roth.'

My skin tightened in a shiver, and I swallowed. I knew she loved me, but she almost never said it. That alone could've been her birthday gift for me."-Page 95

  2. LOL, I wish I spoke German. There were a couple German lines where I was like "Jigga Wha?" I just basically assumed what it meant b/c of what followed.

    LUFF YOU, TIGER!!! *huggles*

  6. I love Sam and Grace too! They are one of my favorite lit couples.

    @Andrea- YAY! I hope you love Shiver as much as I did. And you have no idea how great-awful it is to read Linger. I loved it, I'm dying to talk about it, but no one I know has read it. :P

    I think I'm going to call one of my BFFs and read her the prologue in the morning. Just to see what she thinks. :)
