The Raven Boys
The Raven Boys | Maggie Stiefvater
An all-new series from the masterful, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater! "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:

I'm only giving this a "pick" because of the second half. The first half of the book was waaaaaay too slow ?? I loved how the plot started getting more interesting and complicated and unpredictable.
Also... this was my first audiobook. I hate audiobooks but I forced myself to finish at least one and I honestly can't undertand how people "read" like this ??

Have had to give up on The Raven Boys for now. I like the book, I just can't seem to get into it at the moment. From what I've read so far I like it, but I'll need to come back to it at a later date.

This book was okay. I wanted more action, but I can see where the author is setting up background for the series.

I will pick up the second one at some point to see where the story goes.

readordierachel I thought it was just OK, too. I am curious about the rest of the series though. 2w

#MOvember #TrueBlue For as long as Blue can remember, she‘s 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 actually tried to read this book....#EpicFail wayyyyyy to YA for me but it has a 95% rating (I probably ruined its perfect score 😉)

I fell so hard for this book! From the tarot, to the psychics to the slow slow burn of the relationships. Ughh it was so captivating and I am here for it! I want my own Raven Boys please and thank you. I absolutely adore Gansey and Ronan. What made these even better was the amazing audiobook the narrator nailed it! Solid start to a series!

Heretherebedragons Yes! I agree about the narrator. His subtle Southern accent really brought home the feel of the book for me, bringing the writing to life. 1mo

I love THE RAVEN BOYS so much that if I start talking about it, I won‘t be able to stop. I‘ll spend a minimum of 8,000 words gushing about the characters and the imagery and the emotional resonance and the foreshadowing and a million other things you won‘t even care about unless you already love the book, too.

What it boils down to is, this MATTERS. It‘s a little piece of my soul between two covers.

5 stars.

Y‘all, I‘m struggling with winter today. It‘s not even excessively cold right now (-3°C), but it‘s enough to push me into a loop about how much colder it‘s gonna get, and how little mobility I have when the weather‘s like this, and the utter lack of greenery. Plus, I saw a bunch of not-local-to-me cold-love on Instagram yesterday, and... yeah. Bad place.

I‘m trying to self-medicate with THE RAVEN BOYS, which I love more than ever, and tasty rice.

I found a like new first edition copy of The Raven Boys at Half Price Books. This one has been on my radar for a while because I hear such great things about it. Well, it‘s reputation is well deserved. I loved this book and all the characters in it - Blue and her quirky family, Gansey, Ronan, Adam and Noah. There were plenty of twists and turns that kept me turning the pages way too late into the night. Highly recommend!!

I finally started my Raven Cycle reread this morning, and lemme tell you: it felt like coming home. I can hardly believe it‘s been three and a half years since I last read these books.

Tonight, I‘m gonna carry on with a glass of Sam Adams‘s holiday porter for company. Charlie‘s parents kindly brought me a variety pack from America.

xicanti @readingjedi I had no idea Sam Adams was a Hero of the American Revolution until an American friend told me she visited his grave. I thought he was just a beer guy, and maybe a fictional one at that! 1mo

The Raven Boys has a #ghostly character that is one of my favorites! And The #Graveyard Book I haven‘t read yet but I‘ve heard good things about.

Overall I really liked the story of this book, but did not love the way it was told. I kept feeling like I was missing something, like the author was withholding information for effect but withheld too much, and that made it hard for me to always follow what was going on. Even with that said, I know many people love this story, and I‘m excited to read book 2!

1. Tagged - not sure why I haven't gotten to it yet, as I have really enjoyed other Stiefvater books I've read.
2. So many; I'm a huge rereader. Nora Roberts's Bridal Quartet has become a random comfort read for me haha
3. Somewhere around five billion, I suppose. :-D
4. I don't read a lot of nonfiction, but I'm currently plowing through Vietnam: A History by Stanley Karnow. It's been really excellent.

Blue is the daughter of a psychic; while she doesn't have this ability, she makes information 'louder' for those that do. Her mom can see dead people & for the first time, Blue does. Meanwhile, Gansey & his 3 friends from the local private school in Henrietta VA where Blue lives try to find out about a dead king that if awakened can brings powers to the person who succeeds at this. Blue becomes part of this odd group as they continue their quest.

I‘m still in full blown summertime sadness mode and can‘t seem to settle on what to read next. #Reread the Fever series or the Raven Cycle? Start a fun romance trilogy? Go with something else entirely?? Who knows what the day will bring! Oh the joys of being a reader, even when I‘m depressed, I have books to bring me little rays of joy.

Started listening to this today, so far so good. I know I‘m a bit late to the party. 🤷🏽‍♀️

We‘ve still been going on walks. I surpassed my step goal everyday this past week, except for Tuesday (less than 2,000 steps from it), but I still hit and passed my weekly goal of 77,000 steps because of the amount of steps I took the other days. I drank plenty of water, only drank 2 sugary drinks, but I didn‘t workout. I started intermittent fasting.

Which Raven Cycle character are you?

wanderinglynn I got Blue Sargent: “You are outspoken, and walk to the beat of your own drum. You've always been different, and take pride in your individualistic nature. Although you try to maintain a rebellious streak, you are consistently told that you are sensible. Remember, don't kiss any strange boys!”😂 I love the last sentence! 😂😂😂 4mo
Owlizabeth @wanderinglynn I got Blue, too! 4mo
intothehallofbooks I got Noah!! “You are very observant, and mostly keep to yourself. A little too naive and gullible of others, your willingness to trust leads to you getting hurt quite often. You are extremely kind and loyal to those you love.” 4mo

What the actual what? The ending was going great until the last sentence which was completely baffling and now I have to wait for the library hold to come in to figure out what it meant.

This book was definitely an easy page turner, with great writing, and I would have finished it in a day if I had the opportunity to.

Now to finish my coffee and get off my lazy butt and take Arthur for a walk. He‘s impatiently waiting in the entryway.

Took me a bit to get into this book and I almost bailed a couple times. I find it starts to get interesting towards the middle of the book and after that, it got interesting enough that I've placed a hold on the next book in the series at my library! Some characters I disliked at first I wound up adoring and vice versa with characters I initially liked. Overall decent afternoon read to pass time. I do love that the pet is named Chainsaw 😂.

GondorGirl That's how Maggie's books always are for me. There's a lot of setup, but once I fall into the story I'm hooked forever. This ended up being one of my favorite series ever. I hope you enjoy the rest of the books as much as I did. 5mo
