The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
An all-new series from the masterful, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!
"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:
So I got to the end of this book and i was really loving it. The only thing is that this book ended and it really didn't have anything to do with Blue and the foretold dangerous kiss of hers. I was really confused so I read the description again.....and then I reallize that it's a series.....Grr. Now I'm really upset because the next one isn't out yet and wont be out until September 17th.....again grr. This book was AMAZING!!!! I loved it. I don't see how she could (hasn't yet) fallen in love with Gansey. He's kind of egotistical...I dont know maybe he'll change. And when you find out about Noah?! OH MY GOD! Sorry guys, cant tell you that part you'll just have to find that out by yourselves. Then Adam....I don't know.....I see a lot of ego in Adam also. He gets beat by his dad a lot and he doesn't want to save himself by moving in with Gansey because he doesn't want "charity". I think he should try for some charity, because his home life isn't that great. OH, and what is this crap that Blue will tell Gansey about the kiss she cant have but not Adam? She's technically dating Adam right now and not Gansey. Seems kind of unfair to not tell the guy that wants to kiss you why he shouldn't do so. I don't know....I'm really excited for the next one though.
