The Raven Boys

A One Paragraph Book Review


My husband asked me recently why I don’t review books I actually like and I argued that I have reviewed books I like; I LIKE most of the books I’ve read in the last year, I just don’t LOVE them. The problem is Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys. It’s ruined me for other books which, admittedly, is a little odd considering that I wasn’t all that interested in the overall plot of the book (Finding the burial place of a Welsh king? Meh.). The characters, though. I would happily read an entire book about Ronan folding his laundry. Gansey and Blue and Adam and Ronan are the kind of characters that make you angry with the world for not having seen fit to make them into real people. They are lovely and, for better or worse, I doubt I will ever love another book quite as much as I love this one.
