This Week, I am waiting on…

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Pub Date: September 18th, 2012
Publisher: Scholastic

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.

RJ Gonzales is a born and raised Texan that unfortunately didn’t get the cool accent or sweet hat/boots. Aside from attending a local university to study Film and TV Production, he can be found nose-deep in a pile of YA books, or behind a screen writing some. He has a habit of picking up skills when bored; one of them being writing his biography in third person.

    I haven't read any of Maggie's books. I know, shame on me. But what can I say, I'm not into wolf and vamp books. But this title sounds like something I might be intrigued by. So I'm adding it to my list :)

    I've seen this one on someone's list already! Looks like it's going to be a popular read! I'm about to start the Scorpio Races soon (Mercy Falls wasn't a big hit with me, but I've heard such great stuff about her newer series that I'm driving back into the pond…).

      Thank you so much for stopping by! I've heard wonderful things from The Scorpio Races. If I'm not mistaken, like SHIVER, it has been optioned for film! :D
