#FridayReads – The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater I had been anticipating this book for a while and I was a bit disappointed with it. And it sucks to be disappointed with a book that you’ve been waiting to come out for a while. This series had so much building up for the ending and it felt like a letdown, to be honest.

The tone, or voice, of the story, changed. Even though it was the same author. And I haven’t really experienced that before with a book that the same author is writing. And it bugged me. A lot.

This book also felt rushed. That may have been the publishers or editors doing. But that didn’t make me happy either. So, overall, I really liked the series but I wasn’t too happy with how it ended. It ended ok, but it still left me with the feeling of “WTF just happened?!” It just wasn’t satisfying.

I read some reviews on Good Reads about this book and some people loved how it ended. So you will have to decide for yourself!



#FridayReads Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

2016-07-09 20.53.37

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

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.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater is the book I am reading this Friday. It is the third book in the Raven Cycle series. I’ve only read this book once so I’ve forgotten a lot about it. I’m really glad that I decided to re-read the series before I start the fourth book! I’m hoping to start that one within the next couple of days.

I also read The Dream Thieves this week. It’s the second book in the series. A lot of the book is from Ronan’s and Adam’s perspective. I enjoyed seeing how they analyzed things that have been happening in the story line.

I’m very excited about finishing this book and starting the fourth one! I don’t know if it’s the last book in the series or not but I can’t wait to see where things go!
