“He was a book, and he was holding his final pages, and he wanted to get to the end to find out how it went, and he didn’t want it to be over.”
“What a strange constellation they all were.”
“The head is too wise. The heart is all fire.”
“I don’t care to be pretty,” Blue shot back hotly, “I care to look on the outside like I look on the inside.”
“No homework. I got suspended,” Blue replied.
“Get the fuck out,” Ronan said, but with admiration. “Sargent, you asshole.”
Blue reluctantly allowed him to bump fists with her as Gansey eyed her meaningfully in the rearview mirror.
― Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven King
Just a few of my favorite quotes from this book. 💙 It has the perfect balance of amusing-to-poetic writing. I can’t possibly pick under 5 favorites.
Review to come soon!
Hello, blog peeps!
I’m realizing, while looking at my stats for this blog, that I haven’t been posting very regularly on here. Which I feel badly about. I guess I’ve just been so busy with life stuff that I sort of forget how many days go between posts. Time flies when you’re having fun, and sometimes when you’re not. 😉
Anyway, to make up for it, I’m posting two reviews in one! I also thought this might be a bit easier for everyone, since the two books I’m reviewing are the second and third books in a series: The Raven Cycle. I reviewed the first book in this series, The Raven Boys, a couple weeks ago after finishing it in just a couple days. You can read that review here. Since then, I’ve marathoned the next two books, The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue (click the titles to view their Goodreads pages). And if you know me at all, you know I can fly through a series when I’m enjoying it. My bookish friends have told me that The Raven Cycle is like a black hole that’s sucking me in. And maybe it is. But through all the fangirl feelings, shipping, and browsing the internet for fan-art and tumblr posts, I’ve been enjoying the ride into oblivion.
