Bookanistas: The Raven Boys
But Gansey is different. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more. 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 told by her psychic family that she will kill her true love. 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.
This book, you guys. THIS BOOK.
So, you may recall that I was wary about Maggie Stiefvater's last book The Scorpio Races and that I even put it down. It took lots of convincing for me to pick it back up again, but in the end I loved the crap out of it. After that I decided to just TRUST Maggie. If she was going to write about emo shapeshifting wolves or magical killer horses from the sea or whatever the heck this book was going to be about, I was just going to go with it and know that she is going to take me on a wild ride I was going to love.
I was right to trust her. I didn't even bother reading what this book was about. I just jumped in head first and loved every single second.
I don't even know what to say about The Raven Boys. I loved it so, so much. The story, the characters, the writing, all of it. It was different and amazing and I wanted to live in this magical world and never come out.
Just read it. Trust Maggie like I do. She won't steer you wrong. I promise.
