Well, I finished the series. I had to switch to audio because I had to start this month's #lmpbc book. I enjoyed it. But as always with audio, not as much. 🤷🏻 Would definitely recommend this series. 4.5/5⭐

Finally finished the Raven Cycle series! Will Patton is an amazing narrator. His voice is soft when it needs to be and frightening when called for. Lots of exciting and terrifying happenings in this one. So glad to wrap up the series! Yay! #78 #BookSpin #16 #BFC22 #SERIES2022 #20in4

“He was a book, and he was holding his final pages, and he wanted to get to the end to find out how it went, and he didn‘t want it to be over.”

This quote summarizes all my feels while finishing this series. Maggie‘s writing is so simple, and yet so lyrical. It‘s hard to put into words how I feel. Just, I am totally undone ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have finally wrapped up this series, my wife can stop asking me if I‘ve read it yet 😂 the author has a beautiful writing style, the prose paint quite the picture and while I‘m sad to say good by the the Raven Boys and Blue it at least closed off on a good note. Someday I‘ll read the new series focusing on Ronan.

This book was a nice ending to the Raven Cycle series. It wasn‘t as stunning as I had hoped it would be, but the climax was exciting and the conclusion was satisfying. That‘s about all you want out of a finale, so I enjoyed it.

Okay, we‘re finally at my Top 10 for 2020! #10 is #TheRavenKing. As stated in my previous post I‘ve really enjoyed series this year. When I read the first book I only gave it 3 stars but after finishing The Raven King I realised how much I had enjoyed the journey. 🦌👑

By the end of this, I absolutely LOVED it! It was one of those series that slowly but surely captured me and makes me want to dive into the world (so I was very happy to learn of the Dreamer Trilogy today!). Stiefvater is such a skilled writer. There were subtleties to scenes that I only discovered reading them a second or third time. Also, I didn‘t really think of Adam/Ronan but they are so right and it makes me so happy 😍😍😍

For series: 10/10

I have so much love for this series, I have no others. Those who know me know that I'm so picky with giving ratings and this series, I gave 5 stars to every single one of them.

Do you usually reread books? I don't usually do it. I wanted to reread a few but I'm scared I might be disappointed instead of blown away again.

I‘m obliged to bring a party piece to Burns Night, so I made a game that‘s kind of a mash-up of Blind Date With A Book and that thing where you roll dice to see whether you‘ll keep the gift in your hand or swap with someone else.

I started rereading THE RAVEN KING while I set everything up, because the person ahead of me FINALLY returned it. Hopefully I have enough time to finish both it and CALL DOWN THE HAWK before month‘s end. #audiocrafting

First read of 2020! I enjoyed this book as much as the other books in the series. Some of the threads introduced in this book didn't feel very connected in the end, and I was a bit disappointed in how some of the predictions played out. #yaliterature #ghost #magic #nonlineartime #psychic #lgbtcharacter #lgbtq #lgbt #ptsd

To be completely frank, I read this entire series over the course of about five days, and I have neither showered nor gotten a lot of sleep, but it is over and I almost screamed (at five in the morning) when I was through. 10000%, if you have a weakness for myth, magic, and/or Y/A lit, this is a must read.

Tonight‘s plan. I grabbed this album from the thrift store yesterday (50% off media, baby!) and it‘s a hell of a good match with THE RAVEN KING. I‘m gonna keep it on repeat.

I tried a chocolate caramel latte at breakfast. I‘m not sure if it wasn‘t a success because it was a bad combo or because I‘m exhibiting flu-like symptoms and nothing would‘ve tasted good. Hmmm.

But yeah; I feel crappy today, and the feeling‘s stuck around so I‘m gonna assume it‘s more than just morning fug. We‘ll see if I get much done beyond binge reading THE RAVEN KING and watching trashy Christmas movies.

I‘ve dragged my feet on starting THE RAVEN KING because it‘s the only one of the books I haven‘t reread, and because it hit me SO. HARD. the first time. It‘s always intimidating, rereading something I loved that much. Sometimes, the book in question doesn‘t hold up.

This one has, so far. What a remarkable series this is. What remarkable characters these are.

#weeklyforecast time! This week, I want to:

• finish OVER THE TOP. About 60 pages to go!
• reread THE RAVEN KING in print and HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE on audio
• read UNTOUCHABLE
• start CALL DOWN THE HAWK
• read some frickin comics. Maybe these ones. Maybe other ones. I just miss ‘em after my week of no-distractions-from-WORDS-OF-RADIANCE.

Cinfhen Hope you get to your comics!!!! Great photo 😍 3y

I am sad this journey is over, I loved every inch of this story. This final book was such a rollercoaster, and so many moments that took me by surprise. Adam grew so much over the course of this story. Ronan is a beautiful soul and I love him dearly. And I am so happy for Blue and Gansey. Every bit of this story was beautiful and it was paced just perfectly. Now to wait for my copy of Call Down the Hawk to come in haha.

Finished this audio last week. I have really enjoyed this series, though it's been awhile since I read the first three. And this is the only one I listened to on audio. I may have to go back and read the physical book. While the narrator was good, this series is so different that you really have to concentrate on all the little parts and scenes and that was sometimes difficult on audio. But a great series!

I finally finished this series!! There were a lot of extenuating circumstances that slowed me down, but this series was so interesting & fun, it never should have taken me so long. I‘m not sure that I‘d fully recommend this series because the writing style took me about 2.5 books to really get in to; however, it was so unlike anything I‘ve read before, and I do feel like it will stick with me & be a series I remember.

The book starts out heavy on the snark, which I always appreciate. I love how much the characters evolve throughout this series and the author always drops little surprises along the way. The series was gripping and the world building original. I will be re-reading these books again the way I revisit Harry Potter.

Ronan is by far the most intriguing character and I am happy the new series will feature him.

Leniverse I am really looking forward to the new series! Ronan is my favourite character too (along with Mr Gray. I have a soft spot for assassins who quote Middle English poetry). 3y
sarahs.thoughts.on.books Love. And the author is currently "live tweeting" the books as she rereads then. She did this book last week, and she just started the UK version of The Dream Thieves today. I think I'm going to purchase the physical books if I can find them used (cause budget), as I already own the audiobooks 3y

I loved this series! Maggie Stiefvater has created a fantastic world around Henrietta, Virginia. Dreams were unmade, wasp demons were jerks, and true love died. Everything you could ever want in a good story! 😁
Will Patten did a fantastic job narrating this series. His voices for Calla and Persephone were the best!
