Currently Reading: The Raven Boys

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.

His name is Gansey, 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 is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher 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 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 anymore.

I picked this at the library. About 6 months ago... I kept on forgetting about it, ok?! I haven't completed any books by Maggie Stiefvater before, but have heard great things about this book and it sounded like something a little different to what I normally go for. I did attempt to read Shiver from the wolves of mercy falls trilogy about a year ago, but I really didn't enjoy it. I just found it dull, and not very gripping, so I gave up about half way through. However I thought it was about time for me to give Maggie Stiefvater another go. I'm only about 30 pages in but so far I am quite enjoying it, and look forward to doing a review when I'm finished!
