The Raven Boys Quartet 4: The Raven King
The Raven Boys Quartet 4: The Raven King | Maggie Stiefvater
The fourth and final instalment in the spellbinding series from bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater. All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love's death. She doesn't believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure any more.

When Adam kissed him, it was every mile per hour Ronan had ever gone over the speed limit. It was every window-down, goose-bumps-on-skin, teeth-chattering-cold night drive. It was Adam's ribs under Ronan's hands and Adam's mouth on his mouth, again and again and again. It was stubble on his lips and Ronan having to stop, to get his breath, to restart his heart.

quote
savvy24

His feelings for Adam were an oil spill; he'd let them overflow and now there wasn't a damn place in the ocean that wouldn't catch fire if he dropped a match.

quote
savvy24

But if one squinted into Cabeswater long enough, in the right way, one could see secrets dart between the trees. The shadows of horned animals that never appeared. The winking lights of another summer's fireflies. The rushing sound of many wings, the sound of a massive flock always out of sight.
Magic.

“These are all boys who think they‘re smart & together & not total dicks; it takes them being faced with a girl who‘s grown up in a world of strong & brilliant woman to knock them down a peg on some of their blindness & privilege. It‘s possible, after all, to be fond of women & girls & to believe one is an ally - while also living in an echo chamber of... masculinity that lets a lot of things pass unnoticed.”

Richard Gansey III vibes today because THERE IS GOING TO BE A RAVEN CYCLE TV SHOW. I don't know if I can deal if the casting isn't good. Especially since with that ending, is there even a point to watching 😂😂😂What do you think? I'm excited and not excited at the same time.

Sue Beautiful shot! (I'm not sure I could watch a show - surely it couldn't be as good as the book.) 3y

BooksTeasAndBookishThings @ElizabethAndino a lot of people expect this epic adventure, but I always tell people that it is slow, but it is supposed to be. It is just one of those books where the world is calm and magical and time seems to be infinite. It really does take a certain frame of mind to go in a world like that. But the characters are just beautiful. ❤ 3y
ElizabethAndino Thanks for the thoughtful reframing! I will definitely keep that in mind (edited) 3y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings @ElizabethAndino absolutely, and if it still doesn't work for you, maybe the show will ❤ 3y

For my #LyricalApril post today, here are a few truths: 1. There is no way I can remember every book I have ever read, so my "read" shelf will always be lacking. 2. My TBR list is an ever-growing monster that I fear will one day eat me alive. 3. I'm making ridiculously slow progress with my current book. I just need to sit down and finish so I can move on! #True @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I hate when my current read, drags....and truths 1 & 2 seem pretty accurate for me too! 3y
GypsyKat @Cinfhen Yeah, I feel like these can apply to a lot of people. 😏 3y

howjessreads Well I need to make that happen next year @RebL ! 🙂 3y
RebL @jess_how An author sits at every table, so there's opportunity to talk. Additionally, there's a keynote speaker. This year, David Maraniss spoke about the accusation that the press is an enemy of the American people. I can't afford the tickets, but I've always worked for a sponsor who invites me. I hope you can make it next year. If I get a +1, I'll give you a holler. 3y

I love all the ways people are interpreting #fictionlove for day 5 of #17booklove! I decided to go with my 5 star fiction reads of 2016 & 2017 so far. Clearly I'm turning into a Ben Aaronovitch fan girl, since 3 of the Rivers of London series made the cut!

Centique *puts hand up* I am here for the Aaronovitch fan club. This is my absolute favourite series. 😍😍 3y

Words actually cannot express how much I truly love these books. The characters are like family, the mythology is intoxication, the writing is superb, and Blue is impossibly relatable.
If you like stories where a band of misfits becomes a family, obscure mythology, or beautiful words that stay in your head, this is for you.
I cannot recommend highly enough.
If there's one book you take a chance on, let it be The Raven Boys.

This was an unusual and unexpected series. The characters are lovable and I'll remember them for some time. Ronan has his own room in the book boyfriend chamber of my heart. There were enough loose ends at the conclusion of this series that I don't feel satisfied. I could use a Raven Boys novella...or newsletter. I'd take a status update. Throw me a bone, Stiefvater.

Finished. The story is at an end, and I am trying to figure out exactly how I feel about it. Catching my breath, too, because this last volume was not unlike traveling at breakneck speed on a rollercoaster... in the dark. It was exciting, unnerving, suspenseful — but sometimes the characters' voices got choked a little in the process. I didn't enjoy it as much as books 2 and 3 in the series, but it was a satisfying and fitting last chapter.

BookNerdBritt Books 2 and 3 blew me away, but this one I felt left some things too ambiguous to be fully satisfying. 3y
Elisa @BookNerdBritt ah, good to know I am not alone in feeling that way! 3y

Welp.. Here's the thing: there were things i absolutely loved about this book, but there were things i absolutely did not love too. I feel like the story ended with TOO MANY loose ends. Characters that vanish into thin air, like Noah. Dude, NOAH. The story is good but, for me, it wasn't a satisfactory ending of a series. Also, there are a couple of racist lines that I didn't like at all. OTOH Adam & Ronan were everything. I wish i'd liked it more
