I loved this series! Maggie Stiefvater has created a fantastic world around Henrietta, Virginia. Dreams were unmade, wasp demons were jerks, and true love died. Everything you could ever want in a good story! 😁
Will Patten did a fantastic job narrating this series. His voices for Calla and Persephone were the best!

ScrappyMags This is a series I‘ve been meaning to read forever! 2w

I really need to make time for the last book of this series before my partner gets sick of me putting it off and chooses to beat me with it instead of waiting for me to hop to it 😂

This book was by far my favorite of the four novels. I loved the way the story grew to the conclusion and I was happy with the ending. As a whole, I very much enjoyed this series.

"What a strange constellation they all were."

I really enjoyed this series. The realistic relationships mired in fantastical situations. Genuinely likable characters, 3 dimensional 'bad guys' one of which became one of my favourite characters ?
The description in every book is incredible too, really adds depth and grounding to a mystical tale of Kings and Dreams and Magic.

Oh, happy and sad. This book was everything I wanted and more, and I‘m so glad I waited to read it when I could binge everything. I‘m so excited for the next book and the return of Ronan and Adam (and maybe some Gansey, Blue, and Henry?). There are some questions that still aren‘t answered, but I‘m hoping that just means more books. The ending did not disappoint, and this is now one of my favorite series of all times.

I am going through #booked2019 so slow 😂 but this is what I had in mind for the prompt on happy place mainly because I love this series so much although I don‘t love this book as much as the rest I was dying to get into this one for the amazing characters but scared of anything bad happening to them. Also I read the first book in Devon and now associate the whole series with it @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

In honour of #ValentinesDay I like to post a fave romantic scene. Last year I used Dorothy Sayers‘ “Placet” scene, the culmination of a three book slow burn. *contented sigh*

This year it‘s the more youthful passion of one of Stiefvater‘s Raven Boys. One touch of the hand, and the ocean of emotions is on fire. *wistful sigh*

A great ending to a great series. There were some unexpected twists and turns in this book but the end was all I hoped for. I loved how the characters changed and evolved throughout the whole series, how they discovered thuths about themselves they felt deep down but didn't want to acknowledge for a long time. Can't wait to re-read this in the future!

This book was Helter Skelter with an anticlimactic ending. I thought I was the only one who felt that it was all over the place and lacked the epic ending I was expecting when I checked the ratings for this book on Litsy and GR. Then I start reading the reviews and realized everyone else felt the same. I still like the author's writing style, but it wasn't enough for me to give this book a Pick. 3.5⭐'s

inthegreensandblues Beautiful cover though! 6mo
Naj You're so right. This was not a strong end to the series. There was no explanation or closure for anything. I was so disappointed when I first read it, now I just pretend it's not a part of the series at all. 6mo

1) 27 going up to 44 today. I really can‘t complain about weather in Santa Fe.
2) mid 70s with no humidity
3) 78, we live in an adobe house with OLD windows so it gets a bit chilly inside. Bedroom typically about 68 even with thermo set this high.
4) Probably winter cause my reading stats are pretty high then
5) No fave winter reading. Tagged book is current read which I should finish tonight.

Struggling with this book a bit. Seems disjointed/choppy in a way the narrative in other 3 books was not. I will persevere because I want to know how it all ends.

When your whiskey and your book match 😜. There‘s a sign in there somewhere.
I‘m only a few chapters away from the end and this series has officially taken the #2 spot of my favorite series of all time.

Naj I love this series but didn't really like the last book. What's your favorite #1 series btw? 9mo
butterbeerheist @Naj yeah there were too many things left unexplained. Hopefully we‘ll get some clarifications in the Dreamer trilogy. My #1 is Harry Potter of course 😬. 9mo

This series had so much potential, but I feel like there were gaps throughout especially when it came to the relationships between the characters. Really would have seen more from Blue and Gansey and Ronan and Adam. Don‘t get me wrong, I enjoyed it. The author has a wonderful talent for words. I guess my expectations were higher because I‘ve already read Shiver series before this one.

butterbeerheist Totally agree. There were many questions left unanswered. 9mo
Asthecroweflies @butterbeerheist Yes! I feel like I will need to re-read the series. 9mo
butterbeerheist Maybe Maggie wanted to leave some things to our imagination 😋. Did you know there‘s gonna be a Raven Cycle TV show? And a trilogy about Ronan. 9mo

Starting the final book, even though I‘ve only got an hour available and I know I won‘t want to put it down.
At 440 pages it looks too short. I would have happily had it weigh in at closer to 600 pages. 😂

*sigh* So, so good! I'm going to miss all these characters. I can't even talk about my feelings specifically, because it might lead to too many spoilers. I'll just say that I'm satisfied with how it concluded.
I just saw on Goodreads that there might be a Ronan-centred trilogy in the works?! I'm all in for that. I think I would miss him most if it was the final end. #RavenCycle #Book4

Stayed up late to finish this one last night. I really enjoyed this one. Truths really come out. One complaint is the introduction of the character Henry. I did not feel he was necessary nor did he add to the story. With that said, I really enjoyed this series and I loved the ending. On to the next book!

So... what did you do today? This is all I did, and I don‘t even feel bad about it. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I will miss these characters and this magical story. Such a great series, and completely different from any other YA fantasy I have read. I loved every minute of my time in Henrietta and Cabeswater. ❤️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Centique That sounds like a perfect way to spend the day. I have just managed to escape my noisy children and retreat to my YA fantasy 🤞🤞 12mo
monalyisha Whenever I recommend this book, I tell people that finishing the series felt like losing friends. I miss them so much! 😭 Maybe my favorite cast of characters — period. The only crew that can even begin to give them a run for their money (or lack thereof, depending on which character/s we‘re talking about) is September‘s squad from the Fairyland books. (Those are some good people/Wyveraries/Marids/Winds, etc), too. 12mo
sprainedbrain @monalyisha Yes! Such a great bunch of characters, and they are all so well written and unique. I miss them already. I‘ve had Valente‘s Fairyland series on my tbr for so long... sounds like I need to move them up. 12mo

I can‘t believe this series is over! Every second of it was so amazing/strange/wonderful that I want revisit Henrietta over and over again. Maggie‘s writing was incredibly detailed and lyrical that came together in an epic story. I can‘t say enough amazing things about this series and Raven King wrapped this series up into a beautiful ending. 5/5⭐️
