Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.

His name is Gansey, 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 is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher 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 doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

Even though I had heard quite a bit about this book via Booktube (notice the trend?) I really didn't know what to expect when diving in. And let me tell you- That is one of the only ways to jump into this book.

It could've just been my reading mood at the time of starting this book but I feel like it took a little bit to get into. Don't let that discourage you from picking it up though because Let. Me. Tell. You..... it wasn't that way for long! Maggie Stiefvater definitely succeeded in pulling me into this world. And oh my~ talk about some shockers!

My favorite part of this book, though? The characters! Hands down. Each person is so different from the next. They come from different backgrounds & yet- they fit so perfectly into each others' lives one way or another. I mean, they are all so amazing that I really can't even pick one to claim as a favorite.
