Blue Lily, Lily Blue – A Review

★★


“Queens and kings, Kings and queens. Blue lily, lily blue. Crowns and birds, Swords and things. Blue lily, lily blue”

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs. 

The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.

“In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them.Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness. Her raven boys.”

If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take?

Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.

One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.

And sometimes he’s not the only one who wants those things.

Ronan is one of the raven boys – a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan’s secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface – changing everything in its wake.

The Raven Boys – Where I Finally Join the Bandwagon

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve…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: 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 warned that she will cause her true love to die. 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

All the Crooked Saints ARC Giveaway!!

Hey, guess what? I’m giving away a book!

A week ago I wrote a post about a giveaway that I was hosting here in celebration of getting 300 followers on my blog. Again, I want to thank you all. But, for those of you who might not have seen that post and don’t know about the giveaway, here it is again!

The Book Cover Girls is hosting am hosting a giveaway for a chance to win a new, free, signed ARC of Maggie Stiefvater’s upcoming book, All the Crooked Saints. While at Book Con 2017, I acquired two copies of the novel. I am keeping one to read an am giving the other one away.

And yes, I know, there is controversy about this book. But, let’s also keep in mind that none of the people that were originally making their judgement had even read the book at the time. I haven’t read it either and if I find a problem with it then I will state that in my review, but I will go into this book without bias, as should we all. So, if you are as excited as I am to read this book, and live in the continental united states, please feel free to enter my giveaway!
