♥The Raven Boys♥


“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before. 

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not really sure how to rate this. I'm oscillating between a  2.5-3.5. This book was
strange and weird. Also creepy, I don't even know.

For like the first 100 pages or so I was like whaaaat?!

  but then after a while pieces started to fit together and it got good

  And that twist!?!?!

This is definitely one of those books you really have to pay attention to the writing because you never know when the author is giving you hints of whats to come or if it's just senseless talking.

The characters They were all different and intriguing in their own way. As the book progressed I started to identify myself with them: Gansy-the one who shouldn't just be defined by what he has; Adam-the overachiever who wants to make his own place in the world; Ronan- weighed down by secrets, as tough as a brick wall but secretly compassionate; Noah-the one who wants to be remembered; Blue-she who will fight destiny because we make our own.

  The end...
