Guest Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Saturday, May 23, 2015
Why I chose this book:
The core group of book bloggers I look to for recommendations were all raving about this series and after I was able to read an excerpt from Blue Lily, Lily Blue, during its blog tour, I was sold. I had not read any of Maggie Stiefvater's other novels, in fact this was the first time I was hearing about her. I adore young adult paranormal stories, but find so few with the substance I am looking for. Paranormal YA is also commonly Romance, which I am not overly fond of. This series seemed to be something that would fill all of my wants from this genre.

Synopsis:
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. (Goodreads)
