Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
This week I have selected THE RAVEN BOYS by Maggie Stiefvater. I have enjoyed all of Maggie's novels and have a particular fondness for her work. She is an amazing writer and if this novel is half as good as it sounds then I am in heaven. Now that you know my WOW what is yours? My Ravenous mind wants to know.
THE RAVEN BOYS
Raven Cycle Trilogy, Book One
by Maggie Stiefvater
Scholastic Press, 416 pages.
Amazon, B&N, Goodreads
Filled with mystery, romance, and the supernatural, The Raven Boys introduces readers to Richard “Dick” Campbell Gansey, III and Blue Sargent. Gansey has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on the hunt to find Glendower, a vanished Welsh king. Legend has it that the first person to find him will be granted a wish—either by seeing him open his eyes, or by cutting out his heart.
Blue Sargent, the daughter of the town psychic in Henrietta, Virginia, has been told for as long as she can remember that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. But she is too practical to believe in things like true love. Her policy is to stay away from the rich boys at the prestigious Aglionby Academy. The boys there—known as Raven Boys—can only mean trouble. When Gansey and his Raven Boy friends come into her life, Blue realizes how true this is. She never thought her fortune would be a problem. But she was wrong.
