For the past couple of years, I've mostly been deliberately avoiding paranormal YA from authors I don't already love. The genre is a hard sell for me, filled with tropes that lead to low ratings and irritated reviews. But really, what tends to happen is this: Then t Quirky loner girl meets privileged rich boy s. Then the next book appears and more positive reviews roll in and, I admit, I start to get curious.
But I ignore it. Then the third and often final book is about to be released and everyone is so damn enthusiastic that I Yes, I am a fool. I am that cliche about the cat and curiosity. It's sad because I love a good paranormal tale, but I don't know if I'm just getting too old and cynical to read these supernatural romancey teen books. Either that or I've read one too many.
Because I am honestly not sold on the big dilemma in this book. If Blue and Gansey kiss: If Blue and Gansey don't kiss: The only thing I'm seeing is a whole lot of melodrama and names that make the characters sound like horses.
There is some good writing at points and a decent ghostly atmosphere; though I'm still not convinced two stars isn't leaning towards generous. The complex plot that has been so praised by critics and bloggers just bored the hell out of me.
I guess it's imaginative in some sense and I haven't heard anything quite like it before - props for that - but it was soooo slow. And it seemed to take forever for the author to reveal WHY the Raven Boys were searching for some Welsh king, so I had no reason to invest in their mission.
I have a hard time finding sympathy for a rich white boy with his own apartment and vintage car at seventeen!
Blue isn't much better I kind of despise them both. But it's my fault. I knew it was a bad idea. I suck. Please don't hate me, I brought a cat gif: View all comments. Reread in I loved it so much more the second time! Every character was unique and fleshed out and I fell in love with them all! Well, most of them. Can't wait to pick up The Dream Thieves! I really enjoyed this! I came into this book not knowing anything about the plot, just that there were some weirdly named kids and something about ravens.
It was a little difficult to get into as I had no idea where the plot would go and it was just overall pretty slow. However, halfway Reread in However, halfway through it really picked up and surprised me! I will definitely be picking up the next book sometime in the near future. View all 12 comments. View all 16 comments. Nov 07, Miranda Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: She wasn't interested in telling other people's futures.
She was interested in going out and finding her own. You know that feeling when a book is so perfect that you just want to shove it down everyone's throat? I thought I was the only one. I adored this book. I've already read this series twice and am itching to go through them again.
So, begs the question, what is this book about? And that's where I start to stumble. There's just too much, I could never adequately describe i She wasn't interested in telling other people's futures.
There's just too much, I could never adequately describe it in under an hour - every little detail is essential. Blue had two rules: Stay away from boys, because they're trouble, and stay away from raven boys, because they were bastards. Blue is the only normal girl in a family of psychics.
Gansey is on a quest to find the long-lost Welsh King. Ronan came out a harsher, crueler version of himself after his father died and is struggling to keep his head above water. Adam fights to stay at top of his class despite being in the throws of poverty. Noah is an absolutely magnificent ray of sunshine on a cloudless day. It's a love story. BUT the love isn't your typical romantic ooey-gooey teen romance.
Yess, there is some ooey-gooey-ness but that develops slowly - not in the 'ugh, this is taking too long', but the kind that has you clutching the book, silently savoring the build and secretly wishing it could last forever. Plus, there's the spot-on humor.
Marking his territory. I could not recommend this more. Audiobook Comments Probably the best audiobooks I've ever heard. Each characters has a speaking voice, an inside-their-heads-voice and as they get scared, nervous, etc their tone will change, sometimes picking up a suppressed accent or clipping their words subtly.

Mar 06, Nat rated it really liked it Shelves: I went into this book expecting to hate it, but I was truly surprised by it— right from page 1. It was so good. And it was constantly on my mind the next morning, I kept thinking about that fateful moment when I could just sit down and read it.
I finished The Raven Boys in 2 sittings although reading it at night was extremely scary for me. This book follows the events of Blue Sargent.
Every year, Blue stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. His name is Gansey.
It was a night for seers and psychics, witches and mediums. They captured my attention in the prologue and were the reason that I had to finish this book. I was so intrigued by them, they reminded me of my favorite family in The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. I love it when I find books with families similar to The Strange and Beautiful family. Her older cousin Orla always began to hum her favorite song a few minutes before it came on the radio. Gansey is on a quest that has encompassed three of his closest friends: I love books where we get multiple main characters.
Initially, the only thing that made his chapters more interesting was when Ronan showed up. Ronan accepted the bird and stroked the feathers on the back of her head. They all added something so heartbreaking to the story. The only time I remember really smiling instead of crying was when Gansey and Blue interacted with each other, they were so comfortable with one another and incredibly funny.
I loved them. The scent of mint rolled in with him, just as it had in the churchyard. She reached for the railing of the stairs to keep her balance as President Cell Phone stepped into the hallway.
Oh no. Not him. She is vulnerable but tough. She is clever but has moments of doubt. And her relationships with her family is heartwarming, especially with her mother.
And she had tried. But the problem with being weird was that everyone else was normal. So her family remained her closest friends, school remained a chore, and Blue remained secretly hopeful that, somewhere out there in the world, there were other odd people like her. And when Gansey came to check on Adam, I was just in tears. I was so emotional. That part hit too close to home.
I had to put down the book for a few minutes just to try and calm down. Trigger Warning: A bruise spread over his cheekbone, red and swelling as a galaxy. A darker one snaked over the bridge of his nose. I love Ronan. The Raven Boys was definitely a book that astonished me with its beautiful writing style, memorable cast of characters, and complete uniqueness. I love books that can surprise me with how good and eccentric they are. Also, this song really fit the mood of the book for me.

View all 21 comments. Oct 16, Katerina rated it it was amazing Shelves: Didn't you suspect that there was also a devil? Sleeping kings. Enchanted forests. And a cursed romance. Maggie Stiefvater is an artist , ladies and gentlemen! Maggie Stiefvater narrates the story of how Blue Sargent met four strange boys, four boys she'd never expected she'd like or trust, but somehow she was caught in the middle of Richard Gansey's treasure hunt and she was the catalyst of every event that unfolded afterwards.
Blue, Adam, Gansey, Ronan, Noah, they all had their fair share of secrets and pain, but only together they can unravel the mystery that cloaks their little town, from murders to paranormal activity and coincidences that are not coincidences. And Blue has to be careful, very careful, or else if she finds her true love in the face of one of the Raven Boys, she will cause his death. With one kiss. But it deserves it.
The foreboding , the hypnotizing and at times eerie ambience , the riveting plotline and the poetic writing , there was a sweet melancholy that settled in my heart and enchanted me. I could picture everything in blue, green and grey. The paranormal element was strong and gave me goosebumps, the characters' backrounds misty, and I couldn't help but inhale every word and feel the physical need to be part of the story, to join Blue and the Raven Boys in their adventures! One, stay away from boys because they were trouble.
And two, stay away from Aglionby boys, because they were bastards. Surprisingly I didn't mind, her narrative was always interesting and I am positive I will establish a connection with her in the later installments! The boys though, well, they're a completely different story. Noah was the invinsible one, the shy and awkward boy who didn't speak that much, who was hurt and losing himself and I wanted to hug him and make everything alright for him. Ronan was cruel, rude, sarcastic and grumpy, but he had a caring side and he was so alluring, I wanted to know his secrets and the source of his pain, he was my second favorite character!
Adam ,well, I still haven't made up my mind about him. He was silent, always observing and calculating, he didn't deserve this life and all the burdens he had to carry, but I think he was unfair towards Gansey. Sometimes I thought the only reason he sticked around was the treasure hunt.
I understand he had principles and didn't like charities, but he made himself feel inferior, not Gansey. He kept complaining that he couldn't understand him, because he was born privileged, but when did Adam try to understand Gansey? Yes he could be condescending or ignorant, but his heart was made of gold, he could be wise beyond his years, he acted and spoke like an old man and was so, so passionate about his goal.
And for reasons unknown, I kept imagining him with an english accent. Admit it, it suits him perfectly! I won't talk about the romance because my ship has not sailed yet, but I think the foundations were set and I'm excited to witness Blue falling in love with the person she least expected! The Raven Boys added a new heart to their collection, a heart I willingly gave up! Oustanding job Maggie Stiefvater , you earned a new loyal fan! View all 52 comments. Reread on audio.
Melissa Martin's Reading List I absolutely loved this book! But, here's the thing, I didn't know what was going on through half of the book and I'm still a little up in the air with what all they were doing. LOL Okay so there are these four rich boys that go to the rich school, Aglionby. They are the main characters. We have Reread on audio. There is also from time to time a bunch of aunts and what not filling up the house.
I totally love them! All of the women in Blue's family can see things, but she can't. Blue is like a conduit that helps them pick up things, she like draws energy in. Every year at St. Mark's Day, they go to the graveyard and Blue helps her mom or whoever goes with her to talk to the dead. People that haven't died yet.
The Raven Boys-PDF
For the first time Blue sees a boy and that means he is going to die. It's one of the Raven Boy's! This story is cray cray and I'm probably not explaining it well but only the other nuts like me will get it!
The Raven was Glendower's bird. The Raven King, he was called, from a long line of kings associated with the bird.
Legend had it that Glendower could speak to ravens, and vice versa. It was only one of the reasons why Gansey was here in Henrietta, a town known for its ravens. Then all of this crazy town stuff starts happening. And Blue is a part of the Raven boys now and they get into all kinds of stuff that I won't even say because I know there are more people out there like me that hasn't started reading these books yet. I find it strange that I could love a book so much that I found confusing at times.
But it was just so damn good! So who cares!! I hope anyone that hasn't read this yet, gives it a try. If you like it - great - if you don't - that's great too! I look forward to the rest of the series! View all 74 comments. Jan 18, C.
Drews rated it it was amazing Shelves: READ 4: May It has come to my attention that I am still hopelessly in love with all my Raven Boys. This damaged thorn bush named Ronan Lynch afjdklsad. I'm so dead. Read 3: Oct Yeah I mean Read 2: Feb But I'm also an idiot and lost my original review. Let me cryyyyy. I desperately wanted to compare my then and now thoughts. I'll just blame it on the fact that I am too insanely besotted with this book to be thinking clearly. It like clicks.
It's the style that is made for me and it makes me flail wild and unashamed. I need I need a moment of intense howling.
He is like a mother hen. Gansey is the kind of friend anyone would want. Ergo I think he would appeal to mostly any reader. He cares. And he's just adorable, did I mention that? I love how she hates being called "sensible". Like I used to get that too?? So no wonder I love Blue. Because people always see the logic and forget to look closer.
Like the descriptions of her hair and clothes are everything. She is a bitter espresso of insane fantasticness. Like, I'm never in love with ALL the characters.
But I totally am here. Adam drove me really crazy the first time I read it. But I hate how he treats Gansey a lot. He's all horrible and dark and stabby stabby, but he looks after a baby bird and afjdklafdj it melts. My heart melts. He is like a wispy shy thing Sneezing with joy is a legit thing, okay?
Plus I'm running out of ways to display my emotions. Like Blue lives in a house of psychics and I really love that?!? Plus they're old sort of weird and zany and awesome. Calla is my favourite because she's horrible. How does it even mix so well?! If someone walked up to me right now and said "Let's go look for a dead Welsh king" I'd be like "Too right mate, let's go. I snickered. I wailed. Foreshadowing that freaking hurts.
It wasn't my favourite audio. Mostly because the narrator had this drawly southern accent which I assume is what the book's describing as the characters' accents? Plus not consistent. One moment Calla is gravelly, the next she's squeaking.
Like, wut? I wish he'd just read it all in a normal voice and skipped the "voices" and then it'd have been fine. I like I can't. And I know it's a bit slow? But I didn't care because I cherished every second with the boys. And this review is no longer useful. I am aware. My old review is here. It is awful. It is hilarious. But here never the less. I first read this in I just wanted it condensed here for records.
If Maggie Stiefvater writes it, there's a Naturally, The Raven Boys is no different. After putting this book off foreeeever, I've read it. I'm hopelessly in love. No one save me. The writing? The writing is the stuff of perfect, writerly dreams. It doesn't say "box" it says "cereal box". The car is an "orange camaro" and Ronan smells like "soap and deodorant". Just these little tiny things, that so often fall out of books. I get so sucked in by her writing.
Okay, I promised myself I would spend the whole review fangirling The story? Okay, I confess! I originally read the first 2 chapters and then sent this back to the library. The writing is slow and sticky at the beginning. Like peanut butter, delicious, but your tongue gets gummed up. I found myself trying very hard to concentrate properly.
Also the size scared the eyeballs out of me. Now I wish it hadn't ended. Dang it. I save best till last, you see. Oh gosh. I can't even begin to explain how much I adored these characters! There were a lot of them, but I never mixed any up! I just want to gather them all up and put them on my bookshelf for keeps.
I want to own this book. Even though it's 3rd person, the writing was so intimate to each POV. I felt connected to them all. Very engaged with the story. I loved how Blue was strong, but in a quiet way!
I think, too often, YA girls have to be kick-butt or weird or nothing. Blue was definitely weird. Wild child, style. But she was quiet and strong.
I loved her way of thinking, how she was matter-of-fact, nervous at times. She wanted to impress but would refuse to stoop to impress. I loved how she and Gansey weren't an item! I assumed they would be. The Raven Boys were equally amazing. I loved them all! Gansey is so motherly! I loved how he kept everyone together. The second one of their foursome was missing, they went looking. It was adorable.
I can't possibly pick a favourite.
I loved Ronan. He was all bad boy, teeth and conquer the world. Gansey was so well-meaning, even if he was condescending. And Adam! Yes, Adam was famously strict and hard working. Quiet, but in a determined way. I loved his pride. But NOAH. Spoilers says I can't say anymore I am a fan.
That is all. Give me book 2. View all 37 comments. Apr 02, Kai rated it it was amazing Shelves: I know some of you think she may not be the best choice but I think she's perfect. She has a talent for mystery and magic, and if you aren't convinced you should watch Eyewitness, which is a fantastic and highly underrated TV show. Catherine directed a couple of episodes. Also, Maggie Stiefvater will be a producer for the show, which hopefully means that they won't stray too far from the actual plot.
I can't wait to see it. I didn't expect it to turn out this way. I expected a cheesy romantic up-and-down relationship between Blue and Gansey. Ghosts and foretellings, sure, but definitely not this good. In fact, I expected an average teen fantasy novel, but Maggie Stiefvater did better than that. Much better. Because she has this unique fantasy and creativity. Four beautiful boys not only talking about appearances , a talented out of this world family of seers, like never heard of before.
A story so magical and incredible, I was bewitched from start to end. I loved the Wolves of Mercy Falls. But with this series Maggie Stiefvater wrote a way into my heart.

Why did I wait so long to read this freaking awesome book??? I mean seriously!!?? I loved this book! It was so magical and mysterious and all the characters were so unique and well developed! What I loved the most was the way they interacted though!
They care so much for each other, yet they all have their own troubles and worries that constantly seem to get in their way! Each and every single one of them is somehow broken, but together they are whole! This was such a roller coaster my hair is still messy and tangled from the ride! XD The plot: It wanted more than it could hold, more than words could describe, more than diagrams could illustrate. Longing burst from the pages, in every frantic line and every hectic sketch and every dark-printed definition.
There was something pained and melancholy about it. Every member of her family has a special talent and so does Blue! Well, at least not until the night of St. Marks Eve when she meets the ghost of a boy named Gansey. There are only two problems: He knew they were.
So consider yourself warned and proceed at your own risk! Everything about him suggested valor and power and a firm handshake. Alone the way he expressed himself, how he spoke, what he thought and his journal, gosh how much I adored him for writing his journal!!!
Oh, how he broke my heart! Gosh it gave me the creeps!! Adam spit his words back at him and Ronan squandered however many second chances he gave him. Gansey was just a guy with a lot of stuff and a hole inside him that chewed away more of his heart every year.
What a fine sacrifice that was, what a fine contribution to the world I am. I really liked Blue!I finished The Raven Boys in 2 sittings although reading it at night was extremely scary for me. She's determined to do so until she met the Raven Boys, the ones from the local private school and her determination started wavering. She is a bitter espresso of insane fantasticness.
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.
As the first in its series, The Raven Boys does a fantastic job of setting up the world, the relationships between the main cast, and a multitude of conflicts, internal and external, that play off of each other seamlessly.
