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

The Raven Boy by Maggie Stiefvater

★ ★★★☆

Four and a half/five stars

The Raven Boys follows the separate, yet interconnecting stories of Blue, Gansey, Adam, Ronan, Noah.

Blue meets the foursome that is Gansey, Adam, Ronan and Noah by chance. They wouldn’t mean anything to her unless she hadn’t had a psychic encounter involving one of the boys the earlier. Blue is very involved in the land of all things psychic and spirit thanks to her clairvoyant family. When Blue is properly introduced into the crazy and wonderful land of Gansey and friends, she is invited to embark on a spiritual “trip”. Surprisingly enough for Blue and luckily enough for the boys, Blue turns out to be a big help for them and their spiritual needs. Even luckier, Blue agrees to help them  with their spiritual “trip”.

I can’t really write a proper review for this book because really it was just wonderful. Perfect.
Stiefvater’s writing, first and third person, could make any grown man cry. It is so beautiful.

I loved all the characters in the book. They were all so different and unusual.

This book was so perfect, but I gave it 4.5 stars because there were some parts that totally confused me. But apart from that, The Raven Boys was absolutely beautiful.
