This is behind the cover dust jacket 😍😍😍 oh it‘s so gorgeous!!! I am even more excited to read this one 💜
#118 Owlcrate special edition box copy. Definitely looking forward to reading about the dreamers 😍
Stiefvater‘s books are so good! I‘m excited to see Ronan and Declan‘s relationship from a POV outside of Ronan, since Ronan hates (almost) everything. The experience of caring for difficult people permeates this book, as does the corresponding weight of BEING a difficult person and recognizing that you need others.
I finished this at 5:59AM, yes I did and it was so worth the wait. I love the characters, I love seeing what makes them tick. I love the dream magic, and even when it gets Dark it's thrilling. A lot of characters but I was able to keep up, and everything came together gloriously.
Wow! This novel is a work of art like the Mona Lisa with her grin, enticing you to keep reading. The writing style offers an amazing suspension of belief right from the first page until the end. And, the end, oh the end, I want more. Easily my favorite, a book that I will re-read multiple times. The writing style and plot I can only say I think is completely amazing. Like a song that takes you into a trance, it took me into another world.
This book! I‘ve feel like I‘ve been waiting for it forever. I wanted to devour the book in one sitting but at the same time I wanted to drag it out so that‘s what I did.
Maggie did not disappoint. I was so happy to be back with the Lynch Brothers and Adam Parrish. This book did not disappoint. It was everything from The Raven Boys Cycle plus more. The writing and the new characters were amazing!
I need book 2 now!
Yes! This is how I feel about the rain and trees. I LOVE them. It was one of the main two reason why I moved to Oregon without ever visiting. I know that was very risky but I‘ve never been happy and felt more at home or alive since moving here.
I live for rainy and cloudy days.
This post is marked spoiler because it is a photo of some of the CDtH swag I got in the special OwlCrate box, just in case someone is still waiting for theirs. Here's the thing, though - I love OC book editions, but don't have much use for most of the swag. So if you would like the gear posted in the this photo, please email me and I will send it your way! First come, first served! itsthegoodlife15 at gmail.com.

Welp, I at least made it to double digits. Posting now in case I clonk off with my Kindle in hand. 😴 🤣 Thanks for the excuse to read a bunch and congrats on the big milestone, Mr. Book!

I loved this book. I do still stand by my statement that it is important to have read The Raven Cycle before this book to thoroughly enjoy it though. There are too many references to past events and characters to be understood without having read TRC previously. World and character and relationship building in this book was amazing and I found myself falling in love with characters I previously didn‘t have much care for.
Not logging nearly as much time as I'd hoped, but sure loving this book! Ronan Lynch is just such an awesome character.

The book is wonderfully captivating! It has an intricate storyline and the characters are complex, but it is real easy to follow. I did not want this book to end and I can't wait for the next in the series. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book is very gripping. I am about halfway through. I am really into it
#bookmail !! I am really happy that Call Down The Hawk arrived just 3 days after publication. I thought it would take longer to arrive at the slow bookstores here in Germany.
Loved, loved, loved!!!!!! I don't know how Maggie does it, especially considering her health issues over the last few years, but holy crap, this is amazing! I loved the Raven Cycle, but this book brought back that magic that I first felt when I read the first few lines of The Raven Boys. There is a lot going on in this book, and all of it was compelling and magical and marvelous. #24B4Monday #readathon #listypartyofone #mrbook1inamillion
More computer work and lots of cups of Richmond Blend tea! Nearing the end of Call Down the Hawk, and it's just brilliant. #litsypartyofone #24b4Monday #mrbook1inamillion @MrBook @Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid #Readathon
About to get some audiobook listening in while I work on online orders for the bookstore! I'm out of cream for coffee, so I need to track down some caffeinated tea! #litsypartyofone #24b4Monday #mrbook1inamillion
I haven‘t bought a brand new hardcover since A CONSPIRACY OF KINGS by Megan Whalen Turner in 2010. I haven‘t paid full price for one since CORAMBIS by Sarah Monette in 2009.
But the moment Maggie Stiefvater said she was maybe considering a trilogy focused on Ronan Lynch, I vowed to buy the first book IN HARDCOVER AT A STORE ON RELEASE DAY.
There was a traffic jam on Tuesday and I was busy yesterday, but I did it today.
I sure hope it‘s good.
My Owlcrate came!! (actually came a few days ago- forgot to post)
This was my first Owlcrate and I'm very happy with it!
Favorite item (other than this beautiful book 🤩) is the adorable Chainsaw necklace!
P.s just noticed I didn't put the candle in the picture oops
Completing all the pre-orders of Call Down the Hawk online that we shipped from the bookstore while listening to Call Down the Hawk on audiobooks. Feeling very meta.
My happy place 🖤
I know Maggie said it wasn‘t necessary to read the raven cycle before CDTH - But I read the series and I feel like this book would completely suck so far without the background knowledge from the raven cycle. CDTH has mentioned numerous things you wouldn‘t know about without reading the raven cycle and doesn‘t go into detail to explain these things, which I feel would confuse or underwhelm new readers that didn‘t have the background story.
That moment when you realize you‘ve seen this saying before on some socks. 😝
Also I looked it up and it just made me love Adam and Ronan more. I just want to squish them! lol
