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.
