The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle #1)

Hello, my darling readers!
I found myself a new book series to get lost in. After reading numerous review about the Raven Cycle finally decided to give it a shot.
Spoiler alert: I love it!

The Plot:

There is one thing Blue has been told by every psychic she’s ever met: if she kisses her true love, the boy will die.
While this prophecy hasn’t meant anything to her, the reality of those words looms over her as Blue befriends a bunch of weird and irritating boys.
But nobody cares for a love story. Instead, they team up to find a long-lost Welsh king who is surrounded by magic and mysteries…

The Rating:

After the first few chapters, I was a little wary of this book. Pretty much the first thing we find out is the prediction about Blue and kissing.
I hoped that the book wouldn’t spiral into some sort of annoying YA love story that I loathe so much. Thank God this novel took a different turn!

I certainly hadn’t expected the quest that soon came up or how much it would fascinate me. I’m such a sucker for smart guys, so of course, I fell for this story. I adore their motivation, their ambition, their eagerness, their hope, their belief in themselves.

The Raven Boys has such a different and unique vibe, it doesn’t compare with any of the other YA books I’ve read so far.
The characters don’t reek of stereotypes, in contrast, I really really want to be friends with them and join their quest!

I’m getting so excited because I honestly don’t know what to expect or what will happen in the next three books. It’s nice to have a series that isn’t 200% predictable! Although there are magic and weird stuff going on, The Raven Boys still have quite real and authentic, because the characters have this real air around them.

The Raven Boys is so much better than I had expected! It’s fresh, unique, exciting and I can’t wait to read the next part!
