Then I made Nigella‘s cranberry cake, and for once it almost looks the way it‘s supposed to! I used Ocean Spray cranberries this time and they were a lot smaller than whatever kind my grocery store usually sells. I guess they were also denser and less inclined to float up into the batter.

Between this bit of #audiobaking and some work on my latest dog sweater, I finished BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE. Now begins the wait for THE RAVEN KING.

Today‘s #audiocooking efforts involved the carrot salad from ANTONI IN THE KITCHEN. It‘s good, but probably not good enough to justify the sheer amount of time I spent ribbonizing the itty bitty rainbow carrots that were all I could source.

On the book front, I‘m still loving this immediate Raven Cycle reread, and I‘m still sure I won‘t repeat the experiment. I‘m not built for this type of reading.

IndoorDame It‘s certainly beautiful! 2w
xicanti @IndoorDame the red carrots look especially nice prepared this way. 2w
Megabooks It looks yummy, but also difficult!! #respect 2w
xicanti @Megabooks I think it would‘ve been a lot easier with proper carrots. These little ones were really hard to hold while I peeled bits off. 2w

Day 29:
I really like all the covers from Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Cycle series. I picked Blue Lily, Lily Blue because it stands out to me the most.

My favourite thing about this series is that each of the characters is immediately recognizable as an archetype at best and a stereotype at worst, but Stiefvater refuses to let those impressions stand. She deconstructs our expectations and delivers a cast of deep, varied, REAL people. This volume really hammers that home as the central characters internalize more truths about each other.

That sounds bland. I promise it‘s exciting as all get-out.

xicanti Please note Tiny Blue, also. She took a tumble that broke off her stubby hairdo, but her dress that makes her look like a lampshade mostly survived and I‘m AWFULLY proud of it. 2mo

#weeklyforecast time! I‘ve got pretty modest goals for next week. If all goes well, I‘ll:

• finish rereading BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE
• read at least 3 chapters of OVER THE TOP
• finish WORDS OF RADIANCE
• finish HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX on audio
• squeeze in CLAY‘S ARK

WoR‘s the kicker here. I‘ll definitely finish it, but I‘ve got 900 pages left so I dunno whether I‘ll have time to also read the Butler as planned. Poop.

I found enough energy to bike 15 miles while I read. Since my odometer‘s pretty boring, here‘s a photo of a BUTTERNUT MURDER SQUASH my mum made me the other night.

I dunno why, but in my head the Murder Squash Song is about people in plague doctor masks, possibly with fake wings attached to their backs.

charl08 Butternut murder squash? 2mo
xicanti @charl08 it‘s one of those associations that really only makes sense if you‘ve read the book. This dish isn‘t actually called Butternut Murder Squash; my mind just went there because the characters latch onto something called the Murder Squash Song and one character‘s father is nicknamed Butternut. 2mo
charl08 Oh, sorry! I thought it was a recipe 🤦‍♀️😂 2mo

I‘m gonna die from this slow burn, hidden, and forbidden love goin on! Maggie writes the most beautiful kissing scene WITH NO KISSING. Like seriously it‘s so beautiful and carefully written. The story just gets better as it progresses, more magic, more puzzles more everything. I am just so immersed in this world!

I never sleep well when my husband is out of town, and the weather has been so nice the kids have been playing outside for hours, so I‘ve had a LOT of reading time.

Friday I read TRB. Saturday I read TDT. Today I read BL,LB. (I‘m not going to tell you how many treats I consumed each day though. 😲😂)

I‘m loving revisiting the world of #TheRavenCycle. It‘s making me even more excited for CALL DOWN THE HAWK to come out!! #howjessreadsin2019

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is the first book in the series that has really kept me wanting to read! I don‘t know if it‘s because I‘m getting used to the author‘s writing style or because I‘m finally interested & invested in the characters‘ lives & choices. Either way, I‘m excited for book 4 to see how it all concludes!

The character development is wonderfully insane in this book. I particularly enjoyed the introduction of casually psycho Piper and fussy Malory. These books are so well crafted and so much fun. Ronan is by far my favorite. I am excited to read the next one.

The third installment was not my favorite. The storyline moved along, but it got a bit dull at times. I enjoy the relationships that continue to grow between all the characters and I am excited to see what happens in the fourth book.

I do want to give a shout out to the cover though. This one is my favorite!

Paperback.Propensity It was my least favorite too. But the Raven King is awesome. 6mo

It was crazy hot here this week, and while I didn't go for many walks, I did have a bunch of physical labor at work in the heat. I'm totally counting that this week.😊

Blue‘s mother is still missing, Adam & Ronan grow closer, whilst Gansey & Blue try to ignore their attraction to each other. A better book than the second one (which was rambling confusion), this one made more sense.

With that said, I‘m only finishing the series because I‘m not a quitter. 3⭐️

(Oops I forgot to post about this one) I loved it, of course. The intrigue, Piper and Colin, and the room full of skeletons... I raced through it and immediately jumped into The Raven King because of course. I needed to find out what happens next and what Gansey and his court are up to. Also, Gwenllian? Love her.

The third installment of The Raven Cycle. For the first time in Blue‘s life she has friends that she can trust, a group in which she belongs too. The Raven Boys have taken her under their wings. Make her problems, their problems, and vice versa. But sometimes your friends can mislead you and certainties can unravel.

I swallowed this book in one breath. I love the author's writing style, it is easy to read and flows like honey. I loved how the story comes together and doesn't feel like separate books (as series sometimes can). I fell in love with the new characters who were introduced in this book, laughed at the jokes my favourite characters made, cried when bad things happened to them.. there is nothing not to love about this tale!

This might be my favorite book so far in The Raven Cycle series. The world has already been established, so Stiefvater is able to really focus on character development in this one. And while I'll probably never really like the four boys Blue spends most of her time with, the women she lives with will always be my absolute favorites.

Blue has really started to come into her own in this third book in the Raven Boys series. And the book ends with a hint of more to come in the fourth book. This is probably my favorite so far in the series (and since I‘ve lived all three that‘s saying a lot!)
