Waiting On: The Raven Boys

Waiting On Wednesday


The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Scheduled release: September 18, 2012

From Goodreads
“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: 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.

So, it's a long description, but IT'S MAGGIE STIEFVATER! I liked Shiver, but I LOVED The Scorpio Races. Sigh. So good. This is the release that I'm looking forward to the most. If I got my hands on an ARC of this, I WOULD DIE from happiness. I hope it goes up on NetGalley, even though I am aware that the chances of this are small. A girl can dream.

  1. I was fortunate to get a copy of this ARC at BEA. I can't wait to read it, but have had to put it in an order according to all the other ARCs I got and their publishing dates. You can check out my WoW here.
