Waiting on Wednesday: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which bloggers post books they are eagerly anticipating to be released. I can't wait to read what everyone else is waiting on. I know my book wish-list appreciates it! This week, I'm waiting on:

The Raven Boys
By Maggie Stiefvater
To be released September 19, 2012 by Scholastic
Goodreads // Amazon UK
“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”
It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.
His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.
Although I haven't read all of Maggie Stiefvater's books, The Scorpio Races was one of my favourite reads this year. I can't wait to get my hands on a new book of hers! This one sounds dark and amazing according to the really long summary above.


  1. Who doesn't wait on this one? I've just read Shiver last week and am now officially obsessed with Stiefvater's writing style!

  2. OMG this is so exciting, I actually didn't know :) Thank you so much for sharing as I'm a HUGE Maggie Stiefvater fan and I cannot wait, honestly. I also really loved The Scorpio Races, one of my favorites as well. And the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy which was amazing. Maggie has this style of writing whuch never falls in enchanting me. Great pick :D

  3. Wow, this does sound good. As per the previous books, I liked MS's Wolves of Mercy Falls, but didn't love the trilogy, so I think I've got to pick up Scorpio Races.


I love receiving comments! I really do read every single one and I strive to respond to each comment that needs a response (and many more!).
