Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! It has gotten pretty cold over here and it has been raining and hailing something fierce! Which is perfect reading weather, but not so great if you want or need to go out!
Anyway, this weeks pick for me is a book that I very recently added to my TBR, bit one that has absolutely amazing reviews. I haven’t picked it up and I was wary about adding it to my TBR mostly because the cover kept putting me off! I decided to just ignore the cover and hope that I love it anyway!
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Published: September 18th 2012 by Scholastic Press
Amazon: Raven Cycle 1. 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.
