My quote for this week comes from The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, pg 5.
It was freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrived. Every year, Blue and her mother, Maura, had come to the same place, and every year it was chilly.
I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this book for a while now, and I can’t believe I didn’t do it earlier. I love Maggie Stiefvater’s voice. She did a great job with her Shiver series, and now again, in The Raven Boys. I was pulled right into the dark world where Blue lives, and whose family are all talented psychics. Then there’s the Raven boys from the local school, who are gritty and not to be messed with. They each carry their own secrets. It’s a dark YA with some romance, but it’s very light on romance with the most that happens so far is hand holding. Maybe there’s more as I’m not finished yet, but regardless, I adore this story. I think this will be one of those stories I plan to read again and again. Here’s more if you’re interested: Goodreads
