The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, Book 1)
The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, Book 1) | Maggie Stiefvater
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, 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 is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher 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 doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

I enjoyed this YA novel that follows a group of teens on their quest for answers about ley lines, Glendower, and even themselves. I liked Stiefvater‘s writing, but I can see that her writing has matured over the years: some confusing subplots and I really wanted to hear more about the villain, Barrington Whelk. Potentially such a great creepy character. Maybe next book in the series? Overall, I can see why this has been such a popular read!3.5/5⭐️

I don‘t know if I‘ve tried to read this before or just looked it up, but the beginning was familiar to me.

I really liked this one and plan to continue the series. I really liked Blue and all the “raven boys”.

I picked this up because it came up on a list for #foundfamily and I needed it for #pop22

Leniverse I love that series! I'm reading it for the second time now, this time a buddy read with my teen. The second book is my favourite, but they're all great. Looking forward to the spin-off about the Lynch brothers too. Just waiting for the third and final book to come out. 4mo
Cortg Oooh, I‘ve had this on my bookshelf for years but just never seem to pick it up. I‘ve heard great things! 4mo
Megabooks I have read many great reviews of this series! I remember it being a huge litsy hit a few years ago. 4mo
Cinfhen I read this a few years back…it wasn‘t really my jam but I did enjoy it. Great choice for #FoundFamily 4mo

Blue comes from a psych family but she is not a seeker until one day she saw someone during a ritual. Behind her story there is a curse? There are family secrets she wants to know related with this unexpected visitor and the elite school near to her home. I enjoyed this YA story with all the fantasy and paranormal elements. Sometimes it was slow but once the mystery intertwine various elements and characters, the story became so interesting.

Gissy Love the cover 3.8 ⭐️

The first time I read this book, it was 2016 and I‘d just finished my freshman year of college. Now it‘s 2021 and I‘m in the middle of my second year of graduate school—and I still really enjoyed this book! I completely forgot how it ended, but I did remember the mid-book twist, which made several things before it make much more sense! Glad I gave this one a reread! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finished this right before Station 19 & Grey‘s Anatomy today! I have been wanting to read this for a long time. It‘s about a girl whose mother and “aunts” are psychics and a boy who is looking for a long-lost Welsh King. It‘s full of interesting facts and relationships among friends. I am anxious to read the next one! #100YEARS100BOOKS #58 #BookSpinBingo #BS #13 #BFC21 #SERIES2021 #YApril #ThankfulAthon

TheSpineView Way to go! 2y
TheAromaofBooks I just finished this series & am on to Call Down the Hawk. I quite liked them, although I wasn't 100% satisfied with some of the ways Stiefvater chose to answer story questions in the conclusion... but that's down to personal preference haha 2y
Allylu @TheAromaofBooks My daughter is a fan of Maggie Stiefvater, has met her briefly 2 or 3 times and heard her speak. I like the way she crafts her story, but I did have unanswered questions at the end - but there are 3 more books, so... Glad to hear your view. 2y
TheAromaofBooks I definitely feel like this book felt more like it was setting up a story than it was its own story, if that makes sense. The conclusion of the books was satisfactory - it's not like she left a bunch of loose ends - there were just a couple of things I wish had gone a different direction than they did lol I also heard her speak when she was on tour for All the Crooked Saints & so enjoyed her presentation. 2y

My ever-increasing ill health has me going through a lot more audiobooks (vs print) compared to what I used to. What can people tell me about audible vs scribd vs chirp or wherever you get your audiobooks from? The six a month I can get from hoopla is just not cutting it! Thanks all!

Bookwormjillk Does your library have Libby? I get a ton of audiobooks from there. 2y
melissajayne I get mine through Libby 2y
TrishB @Cinfhen and @Megabooks are queens of audio! I‘m sure they have some thought. 2y
See All 18 Comments
Megabooks Definitely agree with @Bookwormjillk about Libby! I do not like scribd, but it has worked really well for @Cinfhen . Audible is really affordable if you‘re looking to buy at least a couple of books a month and want access to more sale titles than Chirp has. Audible also has the Plus Catalog that has included books and podcasts to borrow. Chirp works if you don‘t want to be tied to a membership and get a similar discount audible on regular titles. (edited) 2y
Ruthiella Libro.fm is also a good source and supports local bookstores, if you want to avoid Amazon and the price is the same I think. 2y
Megabooks @Ruthiella makes a good point. I do have a Libro.fm subscription in addition to my audible one. It is $4 more per credit than audible, but I‘m glad to support independent bookstores with some of my money. (I don‘t have a local one.) A note: Libro.fm and audible with membership and chirp for everyone offer “30% off list price,” so you think it would be the same wherever you buy. It‘s not. Since I read so much audio, I always check all three if... 2y
Megabooks I‘m going to buy a title at their list price because even with 30% off it can vary by up to $3 between services, and there is no consistency as to who is cheaper. I know this is a lot to take in. I‘ve read 122 audiobooks so far this year. 52 through Libby, 51 through audible, 8 through Libro.fm (which I just joined in December), and the rest through chirp and hoopla. Please feel free to ask any questions you have! 2y
sblbooks I use OverDrive through my library. It's great because it's free, and there are lots of books to choose from. 2y
Twainy Hoopla, OverDrive, Libby, NetGalley - FREE. I supplement with Audible. I pay Audible $149 a year for 12 credits. That gets me 12 books, any book, anytime. They also have the Audible + Catalog which is free audiobooks if you are a member, I‘ve listened to 3 so far they are good books. They have a daily deal email (book for ~ $0.99 - $5). Lots of sales! $30 gift cards for 3 credits & discounts on 3 credits if you run out. Purchased books are yours! (edited) 2y
Twainy I just bought 4 books on the Audible $6 sale. I do this about 4X a year. I buy books that are over 20 hours & favorite authors/series. I recently bought Dolly Parton Storyteller as a daily deal for $3.I have 2 “Plus” books downloaded. Also when I changed from monthly $14.99 to yearly my first year was $99. Look for a deal or call them. I also buy most of the actual books that I love on Amazon, at B&N & BookOutlet. 2y
RenePenn I also use overdrive app for free library books. They usually have pretty good availability and I put the more popular ones on the hold list to be notified when they become available. Works out pretty good. 2y
Cinfhen You‘ve gotten loads of good advice! I can add that my #Scribd subscription has worked well for me as I‘m able to borrow 2 new releases a month (sometimes more as it depends on publisher‘s licensing rights and also where you live) and then they offer “unlimited” borrows on older audios which I sometimes borrow another 3 or 4 depending on what‘s available. The service is $6.99 a month. Originally I found an offer for first 3 months free 👇🏽 2y
Cinfhen I may have a code if you‘re interested in trying scribd for free. Libro.FM also has a free trial offer. I found they were consistently more expensive on their deals than Audible, which I LOVE and I think their deals and overall service is the best. They have excellent customer service. @britt_brooke listens to lots of audios too! I think she uses Audible & her local library. If you ever want recommendations @Megabooks is the prime source 💗 2y
Molly_the_mezzo @Bookwormjillk @melissajayne @Megabooks @sblbooks @RenePenn Yes, sorry, I do use libby as well as hoopla but they do not seem to have many books I am interested in on audio. I mostly prefer sci-fi/fantasy and they don't have much in that genre 2y
Molly_the_mezzo @Megabooks Wow, that seems like more hours than there have been! I think you're magic! 2y
Megabooks @Molly_the_mezzo thank you! My recommendation for sci fi/fantasy would be a one or two audible credit subscription. Search their plus catalog for included books and you‘ll also be in on their sales and daily deals, which usually include multiple genres. Also sign up for the chirp emails through bookbub. They usually have about 20 or so books on sale from 1.99 to 4.99 that are rotated in and out every couple of weeks. I usually go through the ⬇️ 2y
Megabooks List once a week to make sure I‘m not missing anything good. I don‘t read much genre fiction, so I can‘t help with individual titles, but I think that may be the best plan for you if you think you‘ll listen to 2-3 or more books a month than your library provides. Good luck! 2y
Tera66 Audible has a bunch of "included" books. So along with your one credit a month, they have tons of freebies for about $16 a month. And that stinks you only get 6 a month from Hoopla, in Colorado we get 10, but we get no audio books from Libby, do you get libby? Maybe another source? 2y

I've been meaning to read this series for actual years & can't believe I am finally doing it!! I really enjoyed this one even though in many ways it feels more like a set-up for a series than its own story. The characters are engaging & I really love Stiefvater's writing.

"There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Marks Eve. Either you're his true love . . . or you killed him." I especially love this quote from the raven boys because it easily gets the reader hooked. Mentioning true loves or spirits lets us know that there is a bit of romance and fantasy in the book. @MrsBabki

I just started The Raven Boys and I am currently on page 32. The book starts off pretty slow but it looks like it's going to be a good read. The Raven Boys is a fantasy fiction novel with a bit of romance and mystery. I really like Maggie Stiefvater's writing style and have enjoyed some of her other books so I am sure this one will also be quite good. @MrsBabki

I don‘t know what‘s gotten into me lately but I‘ve become a serious book crier. I won‘t spoil it for anyone who hasn‘t read it yet but I just finished this book and the ending had me bawling. This book is super weird and the beginning is slow, but it‘s worth it I swear. Side note: I will personally fight anyone who tries to hurt Noah.

Stiefvater's writing throughout this book is wonderfully atmospheric. Despite the story taking place in the spring, the mysterious coincidences & creepy psychic vibes were perfectly suited for a fall read. They also build in layers that really made me more curious about the characters & their quest. It made the book a little slower-paced in the beginning than I would have liked, but given the mood it set, I preferred that to the speedy ending.

I know nothing about #NWC but these questions are too fun to pass up.

1. Favorite YA character?
September from The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland. And Gansey from Stiefvater‘s The Raven Cycle wins “Favorite Love Interest” (though that was never explicitly asked 😅). Those mint leaves!

2. If you were in a YA Novel, would you be lead or sidekick?
Sidekick. I‘m not dramatic nor brave enough for the lead. But I *am* snarky.

3. Favorite YA meme?

Clare-Dragonfly Gansey is a pretty amazing love interest! But… so is Saturday… 🤔 (since you mentioned Fairyland) 2y
monalyisha @Clare-Dragonfly I concur! 2y

This book was recommended to me as a fairy tale retelling, which it sort of is. But it is also its own thing. I really enjoyed the mix of magic and plot twists and teen angst that seems well rooted in circumstance. Can‘t wait to get my hands on the next one.

ShyBookOwl Which fairytale is it? 2y
Writeme That‘s the thing! It‘s a mishmash of fairytale/myth tropes. If the main character kissed her true love, he will die. They are looking for the tomb of a welsh king. Many other references. But it‘s done really well. :) 2y
